Albums are hands down, THE best way to preserve your wedding day memories for generations to come.
The Signature Album is the industry's top-of-the-line in custom design, offered in 3 popular sizes, is made by hand in the USA and is the only album Mary offers. The materials and craftsmanship are unparalleled to offerings available to the consumer and since these are some of your most precious memories, Mary offers only the best to her valued clients that her lab has to offer. Album pages are museum-quality, with deep matte prints that are adhered to a firm substrate, creating pages that are approximately 1/16” thick giving your album a substantial presence. Your choice between 16 colors of premium leather for your cover along with options for gold or silver gilding your pages, cover debossing and a luxury keepsake linen storage box are all included in your investment.
Base albums come with 10 pages that amount to 20 sides and comfortably display approximately 50 images, that you, the client get to choose. Additional pages beyond 10 are available at $100 a page 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. Keep in mind that the larger the album the more images will fit comfortably on a page. I am very hands-on during the album design process so if you don't know where to start or it just seems daunting, I'll be happy to get on the phone with you and walk you through the steps.
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 "Album Picks". 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.
After 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 through that link, the site will 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 color, page gilding and debossing options, of which I will list below along with photographs of each.
That sounds like a lot right? I understand and am here to help. Here are the steps broken down;

Parent Albums ( Additional albums that are identical duplicates to the main album) are available at a 50% reduction
2. Choose your images from your online gallery by marking them as a favorite
3. Share those images with Mary - there is a link on the site in your gallery to do this
4. Notate any revisions that you want to be made when Mary delivers your designs (will be a digital proofing software link)
5. Choose the cover color, gold or silver page gilding, and debossing (front cover wording)
6. Final design approval and full payment due at time of order
7. Open your album when it arrives and enjoy for generations to come!
