When choosing your wedding photographer, you may also find yourself trying to decide whether or not to purchase a luxury wedding album. When you choose your wedding photographer, you may need to decide which wedding collection to choose, and whether or not to purchase the one with a wedding album. All of my wedding collection include a wedding album and I absolutely love creating them for my clients! Printing your photos so that they may be enjoyed off the screen is so very important! A luxury wedding album will stand the test of time. Here are three reasons I think it’s beneficial to order your album from your wedding photographer.
“We meant to create our own album, but just never got around to it.” I’ve heard this so many times! Yes, it’s tempting to try to cut down on that package price by skipping on the wedding album, but the reality is that life often gets busier after the wedding day. It seems easy to put the wedding album on the back-burner, but before you know it, you’re celebrating your third, fifth, or tenth wedding anniversary and that album still remains on your ever-growing to-do list. Ordering an album from your wedding photographer with your package or right after the wedding will prevent you from procrastinating on getting that album created and into your hands. They also make wonderful gifts for parents come the holidays!
When I photograph a wedding, I’m always trying to tell the story of that wedding day. The wedding album is the highlights of the wedding story in beautiful printed form. One of my favorite parts of the wedding process is curating the photographs for the wedding album. I pull together the best of the best photographs from the wedding day to create a pre-design. This gives my dear clients an idea of what the finished wedding album design will look like. There is always an opportunity for them to make changes to the photographs that are in this pre-design, but that is much less overwhelming than having to select images from the full gallery for a blank design.
One place that professional printing really matters is in the wedding album. Considering this is an heirloom that’s likely to be passed down to future generations, you want ink, paper and binding that can stand the test of time. When you order your luxury wedding album from your photographer you ensure that the colors will print accurately, that it’ll be heirloom quality, and that it’s an album that you and future generations will cherish.

I love receiving wedding albums in the mail and I’m always sad to part with them. Jessie and Shawn had a gorgeous summer wedding at Lutsen with Lake Superior as a stunning backdrop. Every detail was planned perfectly to reflect Shawn and Jessie. The details spread, florals, and the canoe are some of my favorite spreads in the album! Enjoy taking a look through all the spreads below!
P.S. If you haven’t ordered a wedding album yet and are interested, it’s not too late! Contact me and let’s start designing!

Fueled by equal parts strong coffee and French 75’s, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that convey distinctive emotion through intentional moments and create elevated images you’ll treasure for a lifetime. I showcase your story and your love in an exceptional, gracious way. I believe in real moments, heartfelt conversations, love stories that grow stronger through the storms and the kind of joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. When I'm not tearing up during the vows, you'll find me whipping up a new recipe in the kitchen dancing to Sinatra with my husband, or snuggling with my mini me.
