I’m getting around now to starting designing my wedding albums. I’ve heard from photographers/on here about flush mount – I guess I just don’t quite understand what it is.
I have digitial copies of my photographers pictures, I’m thinking of either getting a ‘lay flat hard cover photo book’ from Adorama or ordering a flushmount from a company who takes orders from non-photographers.
My question is, why get a flush mount? What are the differences?

I’m planning on getting a flush-mount album from a company who takes orders from non-photographers (I’m considering Somerset).
I really want a high quality album that will last for years and years to come. This is really the only instance in my whole life I’d be willing to invest the money into such a lasting album. A flush-mount album is a MUCH higher quality than any photobook and will be much more durable. It’s just in every way a better nice presentation of your wedding pictures.
To what it is – it a nicely bound album with thick pages (stiff as oppoesd to paper-like). The book is bound so that the pages lay flat and no images/text/etc are lost in the seam.
I can speak to the quality of the lay-flat AdoramaPix photobooks. They make a very nice photobook – I used them for my guest book. The pages do lay flat but they aren’t nearly as nice or thick as a flush-mount album. Truely, AdoramaPix makes a top of the line photobook but it doresn’t even compare to a flushmount album when it comes to quality and durabilty. Personally, it is not something I’d ever consider for a keepsake wedding album.
