Take a look at MPIX.com.  They did a great job.  I don’t recall the cost but way less than $460.

I’ve attached a pic of our wedding album pricing from Shutterfly. It was $195 and then I had a half off code (which they do often). If your Shutterfly book is $460, I’m guessing you are wanting a lot of customized stuff or a lot of pages, which I think the book through the photographer would be way more. Plus, I was really impressed with the quality of Shutterfly.

I have been super happy with Mixbook. They are usually rated the highest of all the photo book sites. Coupons make a huge difference in pricing so set up your book and wait for a good one to order it.

That being said, it is a labor of love and very time consuming. So if photo books are not your thing, spend the extra money with the photographer to get it done timely and without a lot of headaches.

bertchelbee :  mpix is consistently rated one of the best photo printing sites consumers can use (vs. professional photographers).

Ive purchased many prints and albums from them and am really very happy with the quality.  They frequently offer sales (eg 40% off photo albums) so if you have time I’d wait for a sale.  

I’ve had photographers recommend artifact uprising albums too. I haven’t purchased one from them personally.

Neither should be running you anything near $400…

Always only purchase on Shutterfly when there is a sale. Only purchase photobooks when they have the unlimited free pages promotion.

We eloped but still had a full 3 hour photo session on the day of, and an engagement photo session the month before. I made a hardcover book on Shutterfly and designed all of my own pages with their special layouts/style themes, plus I added some pictures from our honeymoon.

It came out to around 90 pages and $36 per book after all of the coupons. I only used our best photos. We gave one each to our parents. If I didn’t wait for the unlimited pages promotion, I would have had to pay almost triple the price per book.

Shutterfly is a great option for beautiful inexpensive books for family… Just something to think about.
