Have any of you made your own wedding album using your digital negatives? Not a blurb book or basic album, but a traditional, flush-mounted wedding album? If so, how did you do it? We’re seeing that a lot of photographers charge $1200 or more to make an album when i’m pretty sure that it can cost much less than that so we are thinking of doing it ourselves. But, we’d like a nice, leather bound album and wanted to see how difficult it was to do and how much it would cost. Thanks all!

Target.com offers nice options.

I found this site:
I don’t know anything about it though except that prices look fairly reasonable. We haven’t decided yet what to do with all of our digital proofs.

Have you look at mpix? They offer a range of options including a 10×10 40-page leather flush mount alum for under $300. I haven’t used their album service, but the quality of their prints is very high.

I made an album through Shutterfly.com for our guestbook, and it turned out great. I had no issues with it.
I choose shutterfly because I could edit it from anywhere.

I’m using mypublisher for an "album" and it was $70 with a leather cover. Someday I would like to have actual prints in an alum- like the Somerset link that was posted. I’ll need to save up some money though!

gosh, flush mount albums are so expensive! I was planning to make 2 parent albums from the negatives, but with these prices, I might stick with cheaper options like mypublisher… 🙁
I’d love to hear thoughts from others that have designed their own flush-mount albums though!
