Your wedding story matters - don't let your photos stay hidden on a hard drive


In the months and weeks leading up to your wedding, it’s hard to think about afterwards. What comes next? Planning a life together and enjoying your moments I’m sure are top of the list.


How do you want to look back and remember this chapter in your love story? How do you want your day to be remembered by loved ones, now and for generations to come?


Albums are heirlooms - lasting moments of an incredible time in your life. Technology changes so rapidly (I mean, who else used floppy disks in school?!) and while digital albums are great for sharing online, there’s something so special about holding your album in your hands. My grandmother’s wedding album is over 70 years old and she still cherishes it to this day!


I remember when a family friend had shown us her son’s wedding album. He had only recently gotten married the year before, but she held onto the album tightly and she burst into tears as she flipped through the pages. She said it was the perfect gift.


So whether you want to create an album for yourself or gift it to loved ones, a fine art photobook album is more than just a collection of images, it is a storybook that allows you to relive these special moments for years to come.

Re-live your wedding day over and over again


This isn't just an album, it's a time machine for your Wedding day! Imagine bringing it out on milestones like anniversaries and birthdays. Imagine giving these as gifts to your loved ones. Imagine, on a slow Sunday morning, enjoying a cup of coffee and opening your wedding album and soaking in all the warmth and love from your special day.

Hold your wedding day in your hands

Because your story is worth investing in

Remembering your day for years to come


I lost my grandfather when I was pretty young, so I don’t have too many memories of him. However, I am very close to my grandmother and I love going through her wedding album with her. These photos, now over 70 years old, still bring back crystal clear memories for her about her day. Despite being black and white prints, she remembers the colour of everyone’s dresses, the moments before and after a photo was taken, what the venue looked like, and that Gramps was shaking like a leaf during the ceremony. 

All these years later, these photos still hold such magic. This is why I recommend to all my couples that you get a few photos printed or, even better, print an album that tells the story of your day. Having worked in the photography industry for over a decade, I can tell you that holding an image in your hands rather than on a screen will never get old.


Life can get pretty hectic after your wedding day, so I want to make it as easy as possible for you. For albums, I can help design and create a stunning work of art that I’m sure will grace your bookshelves for generations. I work with an incredible printer that has the highest standard of quality when it comes to its products. There are so many amazing options when designing an album, so I’ll walk you through the entire process so that you are confident with every decision.

Doing it yourself can be overwhelming


You've made a ton of tiny decisions to create your wedding day to be perfect. While you could spend a ton of time working on an album yourself, looking to find the best quality printers, flipping through the hundreds of photos in your gallery, and fine-tune layouts and spreads. You could do that all yourself...


or...


Save time by letting me take this off your hands.


Let me build you a hand-crafted wedding album that you can be proud of and that will last for generations.

What are the albums like?

Layflat pages with big spreads


What's the perfect size for an album? Well, 35 spreads (that's 70 pages!) seem to be the perfect fit for albums, fitting about 100 photos, and telling your wedding day story.


All spreads are on thick pages (like really thick, 1.3mm thick!) that lay completely flat, so you can get BIG impact on your favourite photos.

Multiple Sizes for all occasions


Choose from three sizes: 8x10, 10x10, or 9x12. There's also a mini-album size that makes for a perfect gift.


Make your wedding albums as unique as your wedding day. There are endless ways to customize your album. Select luxurious book cloth from 24 different shades, or from 10 shades of soft full-grain leather.


Choose your binding style, debossing design, and your debossing colour to make it completely custom.

Fine art paper with archival inks


You'll notice the difference with these albums, each spread is printed on fine art paper using archival inks that are rated to last generations without discolouring, yellowing or fading.


The rich colours will stand out on the Coated Matte Finish, which adds a level of protection while still retaining the matte look of the fine art paper.

Full Wrap
