I’m in the process of choosing a photographer, and am pondering purchasing an album. They are just soooo expensive. Are you ordering an album from your photographer? If not, are you making your own? What website are you using to make it? Thanks hive!

I plan to use Kodak’s ofoto gallery to make my own album. I am recieving a cd with all 700 photos!!! That should give me a project after the wedding.

Mine comes with the package we selected. But no album for the parents so we’ll do those in Shutterfly.

We’re makin our own album, although I’m concerned that the quality won’t be the same as the albums made by the photographer. However, we can’t stomach paying nearly a grand with the professional album!

An album comes with our photography package, so it was a no brainer:)

I’m a big fan of Blurb, so I think we’ll be make our album and parent albums from them. They look really nice, and they’re like a quarter of the price of regular albums.

Mine came with the package, but we would have ordered it either way because we figured we wanted a really nice album one way or another.

There is a place called Shutterfly.com, they make amazing albums. If you ever end up getting just the digital photographs, you can create your own leather bound album on that website =)

We’re getting our album included with our package, but we’ll do the parent and grandparent albums ourselves. Luckily, we’re getting a complete set of high-res proofs, and FH is really good with that kind of stuff.

Our album also came with our package, but had it not, we probably would have anyways. Our photographer did a great job on our album, so any album I would have made myself would pale in comparison.

I’m doing my own to save money, and I think it’s fun to do anyhow.

We’re going to use MyPublisher to make a nice, big book for us and maybe a smaller one for my parents.

I researched about 25 websites/software to make my own albums right after we received our digital photos. Although we are also getting an album from our photog (because it was included in our package) I wanted to make my own to have "right now" and for parents and grandparents for Christmas gifts.
I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend the Mac IPhoto Software for making Photo Books. I have now made 5 on my Mac and the thing I like best is that I can use my own photos as the background for all my pages (instead of a generic pattern/solid color background). My books turned out beautifully and were incredibly affordable.
Just wanted to pass along this great find!

Ours came with the package, and we are glad becuase we love her albums! That being said, if we couldn’t afford her albums we would have done a nice blurb or shutterfly book. I think those are good options, I also think that if its in the budget and the photog has good albums, its totally worth it.

An album is included in my package, but I would have added one even if it hadn’t been. But I will be making my own parents/grandparents albums, using Mpix.com. Not only do the do uber-professional looking albums, but they do coffee table books, soft cover books, playing cards, big prints, and lots of other neat stuff. I use Mpix anytime I need something done with pictures.
