What to do with your photos.

24Nov09

Once the wedding is over, you can’t help but wonder what to do with all those photos. If you’re like me, an album was not included in your photographer’s package. I just couldn’t see the sense in paying for an album from a photographer when I could make one easily and cheaply myself.

But I digress. Once we got the CD of hi-res images, I got to work at shutterfly.com. I created our guest book with them and was pleased with how user friendly their software was. I was so tickled with our album that I ordered Christmas cards (not budget friendly but so, so cute!) and smaller albums for our parents.

We got our wedding album last week and I’m in LOVE with it. I kind of wish I’d added a few more pages in! The book is 12×12 with 20 pages included. I added about 15 more pages in. The cost for the book came to about $70 after significant savings (always check around for coupon codes!) and our parent’s albums came to about $18 each-including shipping.

Lastly, I used shutterfly’s 50 free prints deal to snag some prints of our wedding for scrapbooking purposes. We ordered a few prints from our photographer, but not many. I’m not going to lie, the quality of the prints from our photographer were better than shutterfly’s-but I don’t think that justifies a cost that is significantly higher!

I can’t wait for our parents to see their books at Christmas and to get started on our wedding Scrapbook.

  1. What a bargain! We are planning on doing our own album as well. A little nervous we’ll end up like our friends that have been married two years and haven’t got around to making one.

    I highly recommend sitting down to start the album as soon as you get your hi-res pictures. I knew I’d procrastinate, so I started uploading pictures as soon as I got it. It took me about a month to finish the album (those hi-res pics can take awhile to upload, so you really have to be in the mood to do it!) but I’m so pleased with the results.
