Wedding Albums Explained For Brides


Making sure that all of our couples have a wedding album is one of my favorite parts about being a wedding photographer. There’s nothing like creating a tangible heirloom for a newly married couple, knowing that they’ll be able to pass their album on to future generations some day. I truly believe that your photos shouldn’t live on your phone. Photos should be printed! They should hang on your walls, reminding you of all the special moments in your life, and they should also be kept in an album so that you can pass down your wedding album to your children and grandchildren to treasure forever.

All of our albums are flush mount, so the images are printed directly on photographic paper. Flush mount albums are the current standard in the wedding industry and they are gorgeous! The albums are layflat, so the pages will lay flat no matter which spread you open up to, and you’ll hardly notice the tiny gutter. Albums come in three sizes: 8″x8″, 10″x10″, and 12″x12″. All of our albums are custom, so they include however many pages you’d like, and you can also create a 2-volume album to ensure your love story is told in detail.

The Linen Album

The linen album is wrapped in an elegant yet durable linen bookcloth. A linen album is included in all of our wedding collections and I love that, while less formal than silk or leather, the linen album is just as sophisticated. Take a look:

You have the option of including a cover inset photo and/or imprinting. Here is a little comparison of our linen albums with and without a cover inset photo:

The Silk Book

The silk album is a light, airy, premium book with a beautiful fine art feel. Like our other albums, it’s beautifully timeless, too. I love that it comes in the elegant cream color pictured below, which looks stunning with foil imprinting!

The Leather Book

The leather album is made with old world craftsmanship and is covered in an array of luxurious European leathers, soft, supple lamb or gorgeous calf hide. This book has a more formal feel to it so it’s perfect for couples who want their album to be a statement piece. The leather album offers the option of imprinting on the spine in addition to the cover.

Stunning, right?!

Can’t wait to see how you customize your album!
