    I think a mini album would be nice, but NOT just a collection of wedding photos.  Not to be mean, but I honestly don’t think anyone but the couple and immediate family really cares that much for items completely centered around someone elses wedding.  However, a mini album including pictures throughout your friendship would be nice imo.  I was a BM in a wedding and that was actually part of our gifts which I thought was really nice (she did a 8×8 regular shutterfly book).  It was great to see pictures and little story of our friendship.  In your case if you do it after the wedding, definitely add wedding pics in the end.

    ETA: I display pictures of friends and family too, but I wouldn’t display a picture of me and and a friend at HER wedding.  I mean, that’s her day.  I would much rather display a picture of a fun special memory that was equal to the both of us, if that makes any sense.

    I wouldn’t mind having a photo of me and the bride.  However, I really think it depends on the person.  Some people just aren’t into photos.  

    This is just my opinion, but I think framing implies that you expect them to display it in their home. Maybe just give them the print in a nice thank you card.  Let them decide if they want to frame it.

    I wouldn’t feel the need for an entire album of pictures from someone’s wedding. I would like/display a picture of the bride and me though.

    I’d rather get chocolate, or something else that’s edible. I keep all my photos on Facebook, where they belong, lol. 

    Seriously though, I don’t really like receiving photos as gifts because then I feel obligated to display it somewhere in the house.
