Does anyone else think it’s outrageous that my photographer charges $400+ per parent album? I am thinking of making my own, especially since we have 3 sets of parents…Mine are divorced. Are most of you ordering your parent albums through your photographer or making it a DIY project?

I’ll do it myself. We’re kind of doing a budget photographer. She did my best friends wedding and gave them a small album and then just proofs of everything. I plan on making parent albums and a nice one for us.

I’m doing it myself through blurb. It woun’t look as professional as the photog’s stuff, but it will also only cost me like $50 per book. I think that is worth it. How often will they REALLY look at it?

I am getting two parent albums as part of my photography package but if I weren’t I would probably make my own (there was a special when I booked with them). I think $400+ for a parent album is pretty ridiculous.

We plan to order two parents albums through our photographer after the wedding. They will cost $250 each which is not great, but our photographer makes really gorgeous personalized albums. The parent albums will be a smaller version of our wedding album with a couple of pictures changed.

Wow that is expensive, I am getting two parent books (the coffee table type) with forty pictures each, my book with 100 pictures and 100 thank you cards (the trifold type with 6 pictures included) for 380$ I had to work a bit of a deal, I found another photographer who offered this type of package with some 8x10s and the next size up for $500.00 I showed it to my photographer and he was willing to do the 3 books for 380$ which I thought was incredible.

we’re not ordering any albums through the photographer. i don’t know if i’ll diy for my parents or not, i probably will end up doing that because my mom hates making photo albums.
