Who or where did you create your wedding album once you received your photos from your photographer on CDs?

Recommended Posts

Hi past brides, question, once you received your photos back from your destination photographer (and if you didn't have them create a photo album) where did you go to have your photo album and parents album created? Did you use an online website? If so, where? It seems so time consuming to do it by ourselves online, so I'm just wondering if there are photography studios that will actually create albums.

I'm not sure if you have Blacks Photography in the States, but that's one company in Canada I know of that will do it if you go in. I'll be doing my online as that will be my thank you 'card' for those who are coming with us. So it's easier for me to do it ... and it's only about 4.99CAD plus shipping per book of 20 pages.

I'm a graphic designer specializing in wedding album design.   Using a graphic designer is a great way to get a very professional product that won't break the bank. 

 

I work with a lot of brides who had a destination wedding or simply can't afford their photographer's package, but they're not up for DIY.  

 

For the layout design, I charge by the page ($6) with unlimited changes and photoshopping, for example.  And I order albums from all the same album sources professional photographers use, including:  Zookbinders, Black River Imaging, Finao, and NationsPhotoLab.  

 

When choosing a designer, my advice is to take the time to review their portfolio to be sure their design taste matches yours...and be sure to find someone who is flexibe, patient, and willing to make your changes. 

 

Also, graphic designers are very familiar with all of the album types and varieties out there.  They can educate you on the differences, and they can help you choose the best album for your budget.

Using a graphic designer to create your layouts and order your album is a great, low cost alternative to using a photographer and is only a little more expensive than doing it yourself.  As a graphic designer myself ( www.InspiredAlbumDesigns.com  ) specializing in wedding album design, I can tell you that graphic designers order their albums from the same sources photographers do, without the markup...and their designs are just as professional.  

 

I would recommend that you review prospective designers' portfolios carefully to be sure their design taste matches yours and be sure to find someone who is patient, flexible, and willing to make your changes and swap-outs at no extra charge.  Graphic designers can also photoshop your pictures, if you need that.  They will help you choose the right type of album for you and your budget.   Hope this helps!  Susan Gallagher

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
