Ask for a sample from your photographer and review the albums by hand. Make sure the bindings are tight and the pages are thick enough for long time use.

As for how many candids or posed, I would say 50-50. Make a story out of the photos.

Whatever tells your story the best.  So it could be 90% candid and vice versa.  At least that’s how I would approach it.  But you would need to choose which ones are the best.  Because those could also be huge wallable photographs that you might want on your walls.  😉

As for those binders and album makers?  Haven’t used them so I can’t tell you about them.  But check out sample albums, like what Ian said, if you like the texture of one kind of cover, thickness of paper, etc.

When I was picking the photos for the album, I wanted to pick the photos that best told the story of our day.  I really want our album to be something our children and grandchildren can look at and have a good understanding of what happened that day, from start to finish.  If there were any photos I felt showed strong emotions, I included them, too. (all of those ones seemed to be candids)  I tried to make it as much about the story of our day, without it being too centered around just us.   I really tried to make sure the most important people in our lives were all represented somewhere. 

I think our professional album will have 60 photos, which doesn’t seem like much since our photographer gave us 700 to choose from.  I had to cut some that I loved, which was really hard, but I think our end result will be the best representation of our day.

Rememer to tier the photographs from the keepers to almost made it.  Maybe do a mass collage at the end to mix it all together or something.
