Some of our collections include a couples album, and sometimes the ordering process can be a bit confusing! I thought that it would be a great idea to give a longer rundown of what you can expect when ordering your album through us!
After your wedding, we usually post a blog as a little preview of your wedding photos and then we diligently work to get your images completed and gallery uploaded! At most you’ll have your wedding photos within 8 weeks of your wedding day Since we’ve spent one of the most important days of your life with you and we’ve talked a lot about your wedding, once your gallery is uploaded, we’ll also send a predesigned album layout from moments we know were most important to you on your wedding day.
Along with the initial album design, we’ll send over an album order form and questionnaire for you to make selections like your cover style, fabric and color. There are also add-on options to choose from, like a wooden album box, debossing on your front cover and an etched leather cover.
Once you make your selections and submit your order form we’ll have everything we need to order your album after you approve the design! So, how do you approve your design?
To approve your album design, we’ll send you a link to your design, which contains the spreads for your very own album! Included in our albums is not only the custom design, but three rounds of revisions. If there are any images you’d like to swap out or things you’d like to change we’ll have you write up your changes send us a detailed email with your changes. Within that email, it is important that when you want a new image, that you include the image number so that we definitely change to the correct image!
Additionally our gallery site allows you to make different favorites lists, AND leave notes on the photos! We often asks our couples to create a “favorites list” for their album design within their gallery and then make a note on the replacement images. It makes the changes super quick, which means you get your album that much faster!
If for some reason we’re a little behind on the album designs, you are always welcome to go ahead and create a favorites list within your gallery for us to pull from automatically! This usually results in less revisions since we’ll already have your favorite photos. We ask for you to favorite your 30-40 must have images and from there, we’ll fill in the gaps!
Usually our couples will reply with their first round of changes within a week of receiving their design! From there we’ll make those changes and send the updated design. Because our couples are so awesome, normally they love the second design and approve their album for print! Then we’ll upload your design to the printer and confirm that everything looks perfect. The printer takes 2-3 weeks to perfect the album, so when it is all said and done, our couples often times have their albums within 2 months from their wedding!!
