If you ask me, hiring a wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you'll make when planning your wedding (after you've selected your groom, of course ;) When my husband and I first hired our wedding photographer, we had a reasonable expectation of what the costs would look like. We received an assortment of photography packages, and we selected one based on our needs and our budget.
Everything looked great until we got to the photo albums. Sure, we expected the actual photography to cost a certain amount, but we were shocked at how much the albums cost! We were already spending a whole lot of money on this one (albeit, special) day, so we ultimately decided to forgo the photo album and figure it out later. Now, two years later, I'm sorry to say that we still haven't gotten our nice wedding album!
If you, too, are on the hunt for a great, quality wedding photo book that doesn't cost a thousand bucks, then you should definitely check out Shutterfly. If you've only used Shutterfly in the past to order copies of your favorite photos, you might be surprised to hear that they now offer premium wedding photo books. With prices starting at $99.99, you can easily upload your photos from your computer, DVDs, Picasa, Facebook or Instagram to fill up the professionally designed idea pages provided to showcase all of your special wedding moments.
If you're like me, the whole look of your wedding photo book is almost important as the beautiful wedding photos themselves! The Shutterfly premium wedding photo books come in three sizes, 8 x 8 inches, 8 x 11 inches and 12 x 12 inches, all with a genuine leather cover with stitched edges. All of your photos are printed on nice, layflat pages using double thick, premium professional-grade paper with a smooth, satin finish.
