When it comes to creating wedding albums there are quite a few options out there. But they are definitely not all created equal.
One that I can actually share a personal experience with is Picaboo! I booked a photography package for our wedding that included a disc of images from our day so that I could handle the album situation later. I figured, why add extra money onto my wedding day budget when the album was something that wasn’t urgent?
Picaboo Wedding Albums
I ended up finding out about Picaboo and snagged a great deal in the process. (They have awesome sales!) I used their easy software to design my own pages. Once the design was complete, I submitted it to Picaboo. They printed and bound those pages in a premium, handcrafted, genuine leather flush mount album. I was thrilled with the results when I received it in the mail a short time later.
Picaboo albums lay flat for easy viewing and have coated pages that are much thicker than your average run-of-the-mill photobook. These albums are professional quality and cost just a fraction of the price you would pay for a similar album from a professional photographer. If you’re interested in taking on a simple DIY project, I suggest checking out Picaboo!
Gorgeous photo covers
I ordered the Madison style book with leather binding, and chose black leather for the spine. I went with a black and white image from our wedding for a truly classic look. The full-bleed photo on the front paired with the leather spine gives the book a classy and professional feel.
Hinged, lay-flat pages
As you can see, the pages are hinged and lay completely flat. This ensures that nothing gets lost in “the gutter” of the book. I love that feature!
Vibrant color printing
The colors are vibrant and true to life. I really love how it turned out. I ended up adding extra pages to make the album exactly what I wanted.
Easy design process
Overall I was and am still thrilled with our album. I love pulling it off the shelf every year to take a look at it for our anniversary. It was such an amazing day and having this beautiful album to help us remember it means the world!
If you want to try your hand at creating your own wedding album, I recommend giving Picaboo a shot! Picaboo also has tons of other great products, including their classic photobooks, save the date cards, canvas wraps, and more!
