So I’m a huge slacker. We were married on 6/1/13 and I am just now starting to work on our wedding album. I gave our parents and grandparents shutterfly albums for Christmas…so not completely slack.
So far we’re looking at upwards of 200 photos…just wondering if I should pare it down…

We ended up with about 300 album-worthy pictures.

Ha! My wedding was almost 2 years ago and I have yet to get my album. But I think there will probably be around 75 pics in it.

We haven’t got our disc of pics yet, but I’ve already created an album layout with some teasers we’ve seen! I’ve got around 160-180 spots I’d say in a 70 page layout. I’ll just modify as needed when I get all the pics.

phew I was beginning to feel like I was a little nuts and had too many photos. Right now there are 253…without the husband’s input. I feel like we’re going to approach 260/270.

Not sure yet… I’m still waiting on my cousin (volunteer second shooter) to send me a crapload. I did make our parents’ albums and they had like 100-150, so I’m sure ours will be over 200.
But I figure, why not. It’s not THAT much more expensive to add pages, and realistically, flipping through the album will probably be the main way we see our wedding photos. Why pay thousands of dollars for awesome photos that just sit on a hard drive?
Where are you guys doing yours? I think I’m sold on Artisan State – they seem really great and pretty affordable.

I had several hundred in my album. However, my album was only around 62 pages. I had some pages with just one large photo, and some pages with a bunch of small ones, and mixes in between. I feel like it added visual interest to have the different sizes, different crops, etc.
For example, I had one full spread that was a single great wedding party photo filling two pages. I had another full spread where I put just a ton of photos – all very small crops overlaying each other and using different rotations, of our guests having fun at our cocktail party, so I had basically have pics of everyone that came to our wedding. People who have looked at it think its really cool to spy their pic in there!
I found it was fun to be creative and try to use the photos to tell the story of our day without just putting in every single photo (we had like 700 from our photographer) in there. But I still wanted to put in a lot of pictures, since as someone said, they don’t do much good on your harddrive.

notbridey: You’re better than me – it took me two years to put our album together!
I ended up doing 120 pages, but some of the pages were collage style with multiple photos (for the reception photos).
