I don’t post often, but I visit a lot and have seen how helpful you can be! We got married a while back and our photographer is just the worst. Basically, we cannot go through him to get our wedding albums made (long story).
We have the photos. How do we get the albumsdesigned and printed? Is another wedding photographer the only option, and if it is, any suggestions for the Chicagoland area?

Do you have the photos on a cd or online? Do you have rights to the photos? If you do you can go online to smugmug or shutterfly and build a book right online.

@HisBrownEyedGirl: Thanks! We are looking for help with design as well, I would like the same quality of albums we should have gotten with our wedding photographer. I will keep these in mind for other photo projects though. We have them on CD.

As long as you have the rights to the photos, you can go through any pro photo lab. . . you don’t necessarily have to go through another photographer. A similar situation happened to my Future Brother-In-Law. He got married in April of last year and received his photos on a CD, but has had trouble with the photographer about getting his album. He ended up making his own through Shutterfly.
Just doing a quick google search for pro photo labs i found:
They both have albums in their products that you would get from a photographer.

You can get the high quality albums on those sites also. I dont see another photographer wanting to work with someone elses photos.

CDs alone are not enough proof of ownership for some companies, you will need a piece of paper showing that you actually own the rights to reprint the pictures. If you have that, good.
Zookbinders is one of the big professional album companies. I put together an album on mypublisher.com which wasn’t as nice as a professional album but they had great prices, awesome sales, and a good product for the price; plus their templates were super easy to work with.

I used AdoramaPix and just loved the quality. Do a quick search and you’ll see lots of Bees that also used them.
