albums and books

Albums, Parent Albums and Books

One of the most treasured physical items in our families possession is an old photo book … the kind where the page the photo sat on was sticky and a clear plastic sheet covered the photos. In these old albums pictures of my dad and mom and me and my brother sit waiting to be enjoyed and bringing up memories for the family to enjoy. 

We have no idea where the negatives for the images are so these are one of a kind photos that hold so much meaning to our family and our kids who are able to look back and see what their grandparents and parents were like years ago. If you remember floppy disks, slide film, or cassette tapes or even CD’s and DVD’s you’ll know how quickly technology changes. It’s vital to get those images off of a computer or old storage item and get them printed! 

Albums and prints are the best way to keep your memories alive and we are always thrilled when a couple takes the time and investment to print their story into something that can easily be viewed  for years to come.

Let us know if you have any questions. If you are wavering between the book or album let us know and we can help you decide. Bottom line is if you are looking to maximize the number of images the Fine Art Book offers the ability a ton of your favorite images in a clean modern design. The Heirloom Album is great for those wanting a classic design with multiple images per page with the sturdiness of the photographic paper mounted on press board. 

The Process

You can choose the images and have us fill in images if needed to tell the story, or have us use your exact image selections, or lastly have us choose and design the album. The latter is the quickest way to start an album. You can mark your favorite images in the online wedding proofing gallery by clicking on the heart icon and entering your email address. The list of images can always be accessed by clicking on the heart icon next to the shopping cart icon in the top right corner of your wedding gallery web page. 

To be placed in the design queue we require a $500 deposit. Designs and album production can take anywhere from 6-8 months. Factors that weigh on the timeframe are orders made during wedding high season or designs that we do not get quick approval. We include one round of changes to make sure that the album is exactly how you’d like. We like to shoot for an anniversary delivery whenever possible. The balance is due before shipping and we can set up payments in between the initial order and album ship date for your convenience. 

Discounted parent album duplicates are a great option for gifts. Let us know if you are interested in ordering duplicate albums before the album is ordered.
