Albums

From weddings to family sessions, nothing beats flipping through the pages that hold some of your most cherished memories.

STep One:

Selecting your images

Select your favorite must-have images you want included in your album and we'll supplement with additional images that help tell the story of your day or photo session.

 

The simplest way to do this is set up a new favorite's list on your online gallery. Press the heart button in the navigation bar and choose "Create New List" at the bottom; name it "Album". Then find your must-have images and press the heart icon to save it.

How many images are included In a wedding album?

A modest starting point is a 10x10 album with 20 spreads—this album includes around 100 images. Depending on how many details of the day and portraits of you, your family and friends you want included will help determine the size your album will be; and I will always recommend the ideal size and spread count to help show off your images best.

 

Want to include more images? 150 fit well in a 30 spread album, and 200 fit well in a 40 spread album.

 

(An easy math equation is multiply spread count by 5).

How many images are included In a Portrait or Engagement album?

I recommend an 8x8 album with 10 spreads as your starting point. 20-30 images is perfect for this size. We can either upgrade to a 10x10 or add additional spreads if you want to include more images.

HOW MANY IMAGES SHOULD YOU SELECT?

You can select as many as 5 must-have images or well over 100. Your album is custom to you and the memories you want to preserve.

 

The more images you want included, the smaller the images will be on the page (to avoid this, I will suggest upping the spread count or album dimension); likewise, the fewer images you want included, the larger the images will be on the page—and this is where the magic happens. I promise, you'll swoon over the pages of your album with the largest images printed; they are show stoppers for sure.

Struggling with selecting your images?

If you're not sure where to start, you can always hand it over to me to select the images for your album. We will have a chance to make revisions after you see your initial design (2 rounds of revisions are included and it's $100 per additional revision) so we can make it just right.

 

Maybe your struggle is you can't pair down your image selection. That is fine. I recommend making two Favorites Folders, one that is 20 must-haves, and the second is the one you want me to pull from when I'm designing your album.
