Since Daniel shared tons of fantastic photo album tips over the past two days, let’s continue with that theme, shall we?
Stephen and I did receive a professional wedding album, but I also decided to create a DIY collage-style book combining photos from both of our professional photographers, including my friend Damien, who shot our “getting ready” pictures, and our guests. While our pro album is more like a highlight reel, showcasing the best of the best, the Shutterfly album includes hundreds of pictures that offer a fun look at every aspect of our day.
I won’t lie and say that creating it was simple, because with nearly 500 photos to work with, this project took me a couple months to complete, and the finished 75-page 12 x 12 album cost well over $100. But I think it turned out great, and I can’t wait to give 8 x 8 copies away as Christmas gifts this year. Check it out!
Next, I'll share our DIY engagement album. Have you ever made a photo book using Shutterfly, Picaboo, or a similar site?
