I also plan on making a photo book after our big day! That’s an awesome idea. 🙂 

And HOLY COW quick turn around for photos!

I love almost every single one of our photos. We only recently got them back so it’s all still fresh, looking through them for the first time was such a special experience.  We have literally hundreds of photos from the day and they are all gorgeous, there’s only a handful that I’m sort of ‘meh’ about and they are the standard ones that photographers do but I just don’t care about, photos of the rings etc. They aren’t even bad photos, it’s just not my cup of tea. 

I’m not a super insecure person, I generally like how I look but we can all be caught in unflattering lighting or angles and hate a photo but I can honestly say I even loved every single photo I was in which is pretty unusual for me. 

Our photographers make these stunning books, that are literally like a work of art so we’re definitely going to do one. However we’re going to really take our time as we need to narrow down the photos and it’s just so hard!

We got 600 photos from our photographer. Right after we got them back, I felt like I loved them all and had a hard time narrowing down my favorites. Now that we are almost to our third wedding anniversary I can say that while they are pretty much all awesome pictures I have about 10-15 that are my absolute favorites.

There are about 150 printed in our photo book and it took me a full year to finally decide that I was happy with the ones I was including and okay with the ones being left out.

Give yourself a bit of time, I loved all of mine as soon as I got them. But now that we have ordered prints, gotten photo books made for each of our families and gotten a few framed, I have about 10 or so that are clearly my favorites. Also as an FYI: Shutterfly has a big sale right now, and their books turned out great (that’s who we went with for both families). Plus in the books you can make collage pages where you can put a lot of pics on one page. We did 4 collage pages of the reception, because those candids were just so much fun!

somedaymrsj :  I thought they turned out great! We did one for our guest book as well and everyone loved it! I got a free 8X8 album, but upgraded to the 10×10, and definitely upgrade to the standard layflat pages. They are awesome, and part of your picture doesn’t get lost in the binding! The cover you can make as fancy as you want, but the more you upgrade the more it will be. We upgraded our cover on our guestbook, but not for our parents’ books (I recommend the matte cover upgrade, it looks a lot nicer). They can get expensive fast if you keep upgrading! If you are cost conscious (we were for our books, we bought the nice coffee table book from our photographer for us), you can make a really nice book for under $60 by keeping upgrades to a minimum and using lots of coupon codes! But if you want to splurge for your book, you can still make a really nice one!

We loved probably half or more! It was super hard to narrow down for album purposes but at the end you just have to go for it and pick something haha! The new Windows 10 randomly creates automatic slideshow that can be exported to video formats so it’s nice to have those pop up sometimes when I open my laptop :).

I would recommend Social Print Studio for affordable, $60 – $75 wedding albums! We gifted those to our parents. And they occasionally have sales if you sign up for their newsletter.
