Our Album Options...

We are proud to offer our clients the most elegant, most unique, most impressive custom albums available, in both the new digitally-designed, magazine-style album as well as the traditional matted album.
Please do keep in mind that while the album choices below are our standard offerings, we do have access to every style and make of album available on the market today and will be happy to create another style of album for you if you have one in mind.


--Our Digital Albums--
Our Digital Albums are the latest in image presentation: perfect for truly telling the story of your wedding day and preserving your special memories. With our magazine-style, digitally-designed albums, no matting is required of the images. Instead, we are able to incorporate as many as 40 images per page with backgrounds (images like your flowers, your venue, etc.) and colors drawn from the images themselves. We custom design each album with your individual photographs in mind, using our artistic expertise to make your album a truly unique work of art. Image numbers within the books are determined based on what graphically and artistically works best for each page spread set in addition to what images best tell the story of your special day. Image numbers increase with the number of spreads (two facing pages) in the album.
These books are beautifully hand-crafted of the finest leather in your choice of colors, sizes, and styles with a very upscale look. Each of the archival pages are made of hard art board with gilded edges to resist wear and tear over the years. Our digital albums can also be engraved with your names and wedding date as well as embossed with your favorite image on the cover.
Each professionally-printed archival page is custom hot-press mounted to ensure a perfectly smooth, enduring page. Our prints are specially mounted with a tiny 1/16” gap in the center, for a seamless presentation with little visible hinge and pages that lie flat.

Also included with our digitally-designed leather albums are:
a cover cameo with pressed photo print,
up to two lines of script engraving,
your choice from 30 leathers, including our featured napa or glove leathers with a beautifully-velvety hand,
and fine glided edging,
encased in an elegant, soft, protective cover made from the finest quality material.
Our custom-made slipcases add elegance to the presentation and display of your albums, and also add protection. These felt-lined cases can be ordered in matching leather for single or multiple volume albums.

In addition to your being able to choose the number of pages that will go into your album (minimum of ten spreads (20 pages when numbered like a book), maximum of 45 spreads), we also offer our digital albums in a tier of design and retouching options…

Design Level One:
An elegantly-simplistic design. This is our most basic of design and retouching levels--one to four images per page, black backgrounds with white image borders in a simple layout. No overlapping of images. Some minimal retouching of any major skin blemishes, stray objects in background.
Changes can be made at $15 per change, or $40 per spread re-design.
Design Level Two:
With the second level of design, we begin to introduce black-and-white, sepia, and hand-colored images in with the colored images. In design level two we also begin to integrate more graphic elements, such as colored backgrounds and some pages with overlapping images. Half album of full design (of Level Three) and half album of simple one to four images per page (of Level One).
Two photo swaps included. Additional changes can be made at $15 per change, or $50 per spread re-design.
Design Level Three:
With the third level of design, we integrate the best of everything with very intensive design and retouching: all elements of special effects such as soft-focusing, skin softening, and fogs, as well as the addition of background images, text, and a more-intensive level of retouching.
Three photo swaps included. Additional changes can be made at $15 per change, or $60 per spread re-design.
