A proof book is an album of ALL your pics in it but not full size.  It’s just basically all your pictures so you can see them and you would choose which ones to be edited and put in an album.  However, this is pretty old school.  It was more common with film cameras because of the work to create an album.

I would probably suggest against this just because it’s pretty common now for you to get all of your digital photos on a CD/DVD.  This sounds like you would only get the photos if you bought them individually (gross when it’s $8/pic).

I would make sure to talk with them more about a CD/DVD with all your wedding images because I’d make sure you get that.  Also, ask if you can get copies that aren’t watermarked and if there will be any edits done to the photos on your CD/DVD.  And one more thing, ask if they’ll give you the edited versions of the photos from your album…all things I wish I knew more about BEFORE dealing with my photographer.

As far as the proof book, the photos are all wallet-sized with the file name under them.  They usually aren’t edited and it usually includes all the photos that would be on your copy of your CD/DVD…our package included both of the things.  The proofbook was/is just more of a quick way to reference photos.
