About Our Albums

Our beautiful albums are created with the highest-quality archival materials and construction, and are made to last for generations. Images are arranged to tell a story, with a clean and timeless aesthetic. The images are printed directly on premier professional Kodak Endura Lustre paper for a smooth and rich visual impact and are protected with a Lustre finish.

Album Sizes

What are your wedding album sizes?

We offer four size categories (Small, Classic, Large, and Supersize), with your choice between either a Square or Horizontal orientation.

What are your options for showing our names on the album cover?

Names on Motif

For a sophisticated look, your album will be personalized with your names centered, on a motif, in the center of your album cover. As you are choosing your album options, you'll be asked to enter your first names exactly as you want them to appear on your album cover. If you prefer your album to say JENNY & STEVE, please enter "Jenny / Steve" as opposed to Jennifer / Steven.

Motif Border Color

Cover motifs are printed in black text on a white background, with your choice of border color.

Image Selection

When I order a wedding album, how does the image selection work?

You have two options with image selections - use our complimentary selection service (included), or choose out your own images. Here is an explanation of each option:

  • Option A (strongly recommended): "Please choose for me" - Once we receive your order, our design team hand-selects, retouches, and sequences the images to be included, and lays out each spread to best tell the story of the day. This is the easiest way to have a beautiful album in the shortest amount of time.
  • Option B: "I will make my own image selections" - If preferred, after placing your order, you will be the one making the image selections. This involves reviewing and evaluating the entire event photography for album potentials, and choosing out the final images to be included (6 - 8 hour time commitment on average). Your image selections will be considered final, and we will design around your chosen images.

Credit Towards Your Purchase

If I have credit (ex: from my True Photography Registry), can I use this toward my album?

If you have acquired credit with our studio (through our registry or other means), any amount of credit may be applied towards your album purchase, which will help offset the cost.

Design

Once your album is ordered, each image will undergo a final round of enhancement and retouch to ensure that your images look perfect in your album. Each book is then uniquely and specifically designed for you by our in-house design specialists, with images specially organized into 18-25 full spreads (a full spread includes the left and right side when laying open). Spreads are creased in the center for a seamless lay-flat design. Throughout the album, layouts may include arrangements such as smaller images placed together on a clean white page, full-page photos, and panoramic images spread across two pages.

Before the album is sent to print, our designer will send a proof of your album layout for your final approval. If you elected to have our studio choose the images, your album order includes up to 10 swap-outs if desired, where new images may be substituted for our selections. You’ll also be able to make notes about images, image placement, treatments you’d like to have done, etc. In the event that additional design time, custom retouch, or revisions are requested beyond the normal process, we are happy to provide a quote for specific requests. Our studio is very efficient, and can typically get a lot done within a smaller amount of time.

Clone and Parent Books

What are my options for duplicate and parent books?

We offer the following solutions for wedding album duplicates and mini / parent books:

If you would like to order one or more additional books that are exactly the same as your main album
When ordering your main album, you have the option to change the quantity in the cart before you check out.

If you would like to order one or more additional books that are mini versions of your main album
When ordering your main album, you will see the option to add one or more minis / parent books. If your main book is square, all minis will be 10x10 Square. If your main book is horizontal, all minis will be 10x7 Horizontal.

If you would like to order another totally separate book
(ex: a parent book with a different size and images):

  • After checking out and ordering your initial album, you can start again by adding a new album to your cart.
  • You can share your event code with others so they can order their own custom albums with your images.

Turnaround Time

  • After image selections are finalized, it typically takes two weeks for the retouch and initial layout to be provided for final approval.
  • With our normal process, you will have your album in hand within six weeks of print approval, with rush options available.
