Albums are absolutely, hands down, THE best way to preserve your wedding day memories for generations to come. The wedding albums I offer my clients are fully custom designed for you, hand made, in the USA, using the highest quality materials available in the industry and shipped in a stylish keepsake grey linen box.
Since albums are custom to each client, I don't offer them in the products options on your gallery and prefer to work closely with you during the design process.
It might seem like a daunting process. You may be asking yourself "Where do I start?" Well, I'm here to help make the process as enjoyable as possible for you and will include detailed instructions below as well.
Base albums come with 10 pages that amount to 20 sides and comfortably display approximately 50-60 images, that you, the client get to choose. Additional spreads are available at a maximum of 25 pages, which is 50 sides. When choosing your images, keep in mind that less is more. You don't want to include 20 photographs on one page, you won't be able to see them all. Try to stick to a maximum of 4 or 5 images per page, with an average of 3. I am very hands on during the album design process so if you don't know where to start, I'll be happy to begin for you and send you a rough draft as a starting point.
To choose your images: Go to your client gallery and begin by clicking on an image you want o add to your album. Once you've clicked on the image, add it to your "favorites" by clicking the "Heart" button on the image that says "Add to Favorites" when you hover your mouse over it. You will be prompted to both register as a client (so it can save the info) and for you to name your favorites folder. Just name it "Your Names Album". Once you've completed choosing the images you want to include in your album, click "share with the photographer" and I will receive an e-mail with your choices.
Once images are chosen for the album I go to work on the design for you. I'll create a mock up and send you a link to view. After you've thoroughly looked it over and have notated all of the changes that you want made, you'll send those notations to me and I will revise to your specifications.
To keep the album design process in check, I offer up to 3 complimentary rounds of revisions, with as many changes as needed within each revision. In the case (VERY seldom has this happened) that more revisions are necessary, there is a $250 redesign fee for each additional round of revisions.
Once the design is complete, you will want to choose your cover image and/or materials. You can choose from a myraid of cover options, of which I will list below along with photographs of each.
That sounds like alot right? Its really fairly simple if you break it down;
1. Choose the size and page amount you want for your album
2. Choose your images
3. Share those images with Mary
4. Notate any revisions you want made when Mary delivers your designs
5. Final design approval
6. Choose cover material and/or image
7. Open your album when it arrives and enjoy for generations to come!
