Printed Heirlooms

Print your life's most celebratory moments.

I truly believe that we should display our lives in print. Think about how many photographs you take with your devices, and how often you even look back at them. Life's most celebratory moments should be preserved in print - a tangible artifact that we can pass down to future generations. When technologies and formats frequently change, printed products remain to tell our stories.

Wedding Albums

My printed heirlooms are custom created and are constructed of the highest quality products. I only print on premium Mohawk Superfine paper in a Lustre (smooth) or Eggshell (textured) finish. Wedding Albums are available in 12 different fabric covers and include a two-location foil stamp imprint – one along the spine and the second on the album front cover. Your album will have ultra-thick pages that lay flat when open for a seamless, panoramic impact. Album pages are printed on paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.

Wedding albums are offered in two formats: “Classic Albums” featuring a classic text front cover, and “Premium Albums” featuring a larger, designer imprint on the front cover. If you book 5+ hours of wedding-day photography coverage with me, a 8.5″ x 8.5″ Classic Album is included in your package. The Classic Album includes a 8.5″ x 8.5″ linen-cover photo album with 10 spreads (20 individual pages). The material cost of the Classic Album can be used as a “credit” towards an upgraded album.


Frequently Asked Wedding Album Questions


How thick are your album pages?

Each page is 0.04” thick.

What type of binding is used for your albums?

My albums use flush mount materials. Each page has an easy sheet inserted to make the page extra thick. These pages are secured around the spine and then placed into the cover, which is then adhered to the outer side of the end sheets.

Can I write on my album pages? 

Yes, you can! A fine point pen will work best with my albums, and I recommend the Slick Writer Pen, as they typically do not bleed. Please note, exposed for prolonged periods of time to extreme heat can cause the pen to bleed.

What page and paper stocks are available?

You may select your choice of Mohawk proPhoto Paper in lustre finish; or Mohawk Superfine paper in Eggshell finish. I personally recommend the Superfine Eggshell finish, as it gives your prints and pages a very premium feel.

Do you offer Guest Books?

Yes! My Wedding Guest Books are very similar in construction to my Wedding Albums, but each page contains an image with a very thick blank border to allow for signatures. When estimating how much space to leave in a wedding guest book, a good rule of thumb is to dedicate a page for every 10-15 signatures. Guest Books are 8.5″ x 8.5″ in size and cost $250.00.

Do you offer Parent Albums?

Yes. My Parent Albums are available in both soft and hard covers. Parent albums contain more pages (30, double-sided pages for softcover and 50, double-sided pages for hardcover), include a soft-cover jacket (hardcover books, only) and are economically friendly! Parent Album pages are made of 100% PCW (recycled) 100# Mohawk paper. Full or Partial Dust Jackets are 120# Matte Finish. Soft and hard cover books utilize PUR Binding. This is a form of perfect binding where the pages and cover are glued together at the spine and the other three sides of the book are trimmed as needed to give them clean “perfect” edges. Parent Album pricing begins at $50.00 for softcover books, $200.00 for hardcover books.

Can I create a Wedding Collection?

Yes! Please contact me to learn more. I offer a select few curated collections that include multiple options for several albums.
