  • Wedding: October 2010

Honestly this is something you’ll get differing opinions on from each person.  Personally, I like the flexibility to have ALL my pictures and choose which ones I like and want to put into an album (my parents wedding photo album is 100 pages long and has something like 700-900 pictures in it.) and I’m not a huge fan of the big thick pages.  I prefer the scrapbook style of album.  

So that’s my long winded way of saying that I looked for a package that included the hours I wanted and a cd of all the high res pictures from my wedding.  The printed pictures and album that a photographer would give just don’t interest me that much.

BUT other brides will probably tell you much different things.  What’s most important to you?  Do the albums interest you?  Would the number of pictures in them satisfy you or would you be adding a ton more?

@Cem0930:  Sounds like the package is just an album with inset 8×10’s, no design layout, and no flush mount style.  If this is the case you can most certainly do this yourself with the CD of images.  I think 24 pictures is light, most people have difficulty selecting the 80 or 100 best and IMO it will take at least 50-75 images to tell the story of your day.

I would get the CD so you have flexibility down the road, but most importantly, do you like the photographers work?  Take a look at a sample CD or album of an actual wedding/customer.  Have they been in business long?  Are they dependable and reputable?  Do your personalities and visions mesh?  Do they have backup equiment?  LBPHOTOGRAPHY posted a good read at the top of this forum.  Check it out and best of luck!
