We just got our pro photos back from our wedding in September. Of course I can’t stop looking at them and showing them to anyone who will look 🙂
I’d love to see examples of what other Bees did with their photos after the wedding (creative projects/Etsy etc).
So far, I’ve ordered his Nan an album through Artifact Uprising, made some photo magnets on Vistaprint for his immediate family, and ordered Thank You cards.
At some point, I’ll make an album for us once I get pictures from family and friends. The pros didn’t get a pic of the front of our cake or some other moments that I want to add to the album.

Besides parent albums as a Christmas present I didn’t do anything with our pictures until like a year later. At that point I finally got around to getting 5 pictures printed on canvas/photo paper to put up in our family room. Two-ish years later those pictures are now up in our bedroom. I always had grand plans to make an album but I never got around to it. Now if I want to look at them I just pull up the file on the computer and start clicking.

I made a giant wedding album on shutterfly, it came yesterday and is gorgeous! I’m also gonna make few large canvas prints for the bedroom and living room, plus multiple smaller pictures framed for us and family members

We are getting a wedding album made by our photographer is it was included in our wedding pictures. I just sent her the pics I want in the album recently. I’m also hoping to put up a few photos around our (brand new) house soon! And then I’m also putting together parent albums which were our parent gifts, hopefully by Christmas so they can be kind of a combined wedding/Christmas gift.
Was the quality of the Shutterfly album good? I was thinking about using Shutterfly to make the parent albums. What kind of book did you use for your album? Thanks!

I actually printed my favorite one really big and will go on my display wall after the hollidays. As to the rest I plan on printing a few with family for the wall as well and some for my shelves. I really want to get a wedding album together but haven’t gotten around to that.

Ugh.. I’ve done nothing. We look at them all the time, does that count? Haha.
I love the look of the albums from Artifact Uprising, post some pics if you can! That’s my eventual plan!!

I put together a cute book using Apple iphoto on my computer. I ordered one for us, and one for my parents. Also made a smaller one for my Maid/Matron of Honor. It sits on our coffee table, and instead of people having to look through like 200 pics in an album, they can just grab the 20-30 page book.
I also had xmas cards made with one of our pics, since we just got married in october. That’s pretty much all I’ve done. I also have an album for some of our 500 6×8 proofs. 6 x 8! Do you know how hard it is to find an album for 6×8 pictures??!!!! 🙂

- Wedding: July 2015 - Carmen\'s Lakeview
We got married in July and by September, I had a 20-40 page album made for us, a few pictures printed for a collage frame we have, and then 1 8×10 for a larger frame we have. I also printed an album for each of our parents as Christmas gifts. I figured if I didn’t print them that soon after the wedding, and get them up…I never would! I’ve considering getting some canvas ones but not sure if the hubby will want that or not! haha

I made an album on snapfish. Now my Mother-In-Law wants a copy. I think it’s a little narcisistic even though she asked, so we’re going to get a lot of photos from his brothers over the course of the year and make a family album instead that includes a couple wedding pages.
I have a plan for five prints on the wall but haven’t gotten them all yet (can you believe my photographer didn’t take a pic of husband with his parents?!!). I bought MIL/FIL two 8x10s – one me/husband and one of the crew of brothers/husband. For my parents I bought one of our family to go alongside an old one from the 80s, one of me/husband and one of my sister solo (those will replace the old high school senior photos). Also frames to go with all to replace the cheap crap they hung our old pics in!
