AWESOME! I am so freakin’ excited right now. There are tons of sites out there where ya’ll (or your photographer) can create a wedding album with a hefty price tag attached. However, blurb.com is a great place to download (for free) a program to create your own wedding or engagement album. If you’re feeling extra spicy, you can put your boudoir pictures in it for a wedding present for your man.

    The albums come in square, standard landscape, standard portrait, and an extra large landscape. The cheapest one is a square, soft cover album with up to 40 pages that starts at $12.95! You can put up to 12 images a page, so hypothetically you could have a book with over 450 of your images in it.

      Check out some covers of samples from the page…

          The very first thing I had to take care of when I got engaged was hiring a photographer. I spent hours and hours searching through websites and reviews. These are a few of the many requirements that I was looking for..

          • Artsy, photojournalist who would capture the day’s events
          • Fun, creative photographer who my fiance and I would feel comfortable with
          • Engagement Session
          • Trash the Dress Session
          • Enough time alloted on the day of to prevent me from feeling pressured or rushed
          • Rehearsal Coverage
          • All the proofs from the day
          • Album included in package, or credit for the album
          • Something for the parents-albums, print credit, etc.
          • Option of buying a print release for all of the images
          • A second shooter
          • Photographer with a personality to take charge and get things done
          • DVD of the images

          Not only did I get to put a check next to every single item, but I got so much more. My photographer, Tara Kneiser with Dixie Pixel Photography, also offered a package with a custom guest book and unlimited custom thank you cards. She also uses, in addition to digital, a cool camera called Holga. It’s this cheap plastic camera that has multiple defects that creates really cool effects in the picture.
