    I’m currently making my wedding album with AdoramaPix (see Mrs. Cheeseburger’s review).

    I spent a lot of time looking into the different options, and Adorama seems to be the best value and best quality.

    You can make your own layouts or use pre-made layouts. I’m using a combination of both.

    I used Shutterfly to make Fiance a book of all the photos of us that I can find that I’m giving him tomorrow on our -1 year anniversary.  I really liked that they were easy to use and had a lot of layouts.  I would use them again for something like my honeymoon photos.  Although I’d have to look again to see what they offer in terms of the cover.  I just did a hard cover and probably would want something a little less shiny for my wedding album.

    I bought a few Groupons for Photobook America and was going to test them out on our engagement pictures.  They also seem to have a good amount of layouts and styles.  It seems like a company that professional photgraphers use to create their books. 

    However, I’m interested to hear what others have to say about sites they’ve used.

    I used Shutterfly, also as an anniversary gift (4th). I did the leather hardcover with a cut out. Ended up looking very nice. Site was user-friendly and quality was good.

    I’m currently trying to decide between mpix.com, adoramapix.com and mypublisher. adoramapix is currently my top choice but they don’t offer he leather cover which is holding me back slightly but they consistently get good reviews online and allow for more pages than mpix.

    Personally, I LOVE AdoramaPix.  I made my guestbook through them and it turned out beautifully.  I found the user interface to be really easy to use and, while they aren’t the cheapest site out there, they are still reasonably priced and offer (IMO) a much better product.  I made a post about my photobook guestbook here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/my-awesome-adoramapix-photobook-lots-of-pics

    If you want a good overall review of a bunch of different companies and their quality, usability of the design interfaces, etc – check out this awesome review!  The guy made the same photobook from about a dozen different companies and compared the results.  It’s a little long but well worth the read!  http://www.digitalhomethoughts.com/news/show/97676/the-great-photo-book-round-up-review-who-makes-the-best-photo-books.html

    I thought Photobook America and Blurb both had excellent quality. I think the photo sites are particularly sub-par and frustrating to someone who has more creative abilities (and I thought that Adorama’s book-building site was INFURIATINGLY restrictive and not user-friendly). You have so much more freedom with Blurb and Photobook America, that’s what I would do if you don’t need design hold-handing.

    But, none of these will compare to a pro flush-mount album.

    I used Photoworks and got a 5×7 20 page album for $10 and free shipping on 10/10/10. The quality was pretty good and for ten bucks it was a great deal. However, I just bought a Groupon for Picaboo, so I’m going to try them out.
