After spending a fortune on your professional photographer, you want a printed photo book that’s as high-quality and beautiful as the wedding photos themselves. Don’t let your favorite photos sit unprinted. It’s worth it to invest in a personalized photo book you’ll be able to physically hold and look at with friends and family.
A custom wedding photo book captures the highlight reel of your wedding day and is a beautiful keepsake you’ll have around forever. But creating a personalized photo book is a challenge in the digital age. There are many, many wedding photo book websites out there, so how do you narrow in on one? Here’s how to decide which premium option to go with and how to get the best quality outcome with your photo book service.
An effortless keepsake to remember your wedding day forever? Sign us up. Zola wedding albums feature a layflat design and are completely customizable. Choose the cover, premium paper, and prints that speak to you. They’re also available in a variety of price ranges to best fit your budget. Go for classic linen, or opt for refined Italian leather—all are beautiful options that will look great in your home.
Most wedding albums are also laborious to put together and take weeks, if not months, to organize and finalize to your liking. With Zola’s Album Wizzard, you can accomplish the entire task in 10 minutes flat. Here’s how:
Choose the album cover color, cover material, and size of the book that most appeals to you. Then, pick a photo layout that matches your unique style. Keep it fun and playful with photo collages or more formal with full-page displays. Or, go for a mix of the two.
You probably have hundreds of photos from your wedding venue to work with. Upload them to the photo wizard, so you can easily sort and choose your favorite moments.
Now that you’ve picked out your favorites, be sure to review the layout and confirm you’re happy with how everything looks.
Once you’re happy with the final layout, you’re ready to order and print.
You can also purchase a wedding album assembled by your wedding photographer. They will likely send you all the digital watermarked photos from your day. This may include getting ready shots, pre-ceremony, wedding party and family photos, ceremony, and reception photos.
Once you’ve seen all the photos, you may get to decide which ones end up in the album, or the photographer and their team will choose for you. They will go for the highlights—so if there are any candid or other favorites you really like, be sure to speak up and let them know.
Your photographer may offer different options for photo books. You may need to have one or several meetings to discuss what you’re looking for in your album. Be communicative about what you’re looking for upfront, so there are no surprises later on.
