You know the dilemma is real. You just received your gorgeous wedding-day digital files and are stuck figuring out whether you’ll ever get them printed. Our last blog post discussed in detail the various options available to couples facing this dilemma.
Some options are low-quality but affordable products, and others are decent but too expensive or time-consuming.
We saw many of our clients face the same problem. We were professional photographers with an undying passion for printed products. Amore Albums used to go to every length to ensure no clients of ours ever walked away without holding, touching, and feeling their memories in printed form. We used to regularly sell things at a loss, or just give them out for free!
Being on the inside, we knew that the norm among photographers was (and is) to keep insane profits
Being on the inside, we knew that the norm among photographers was (and is) to keep insane profits: we are talking 300%-1000%! It was such a shame that many customers left discouraged that they could never own the hand-made luxurious wedding albums they saw in their consults.
Some of these customers resorted to cheaper alternatives online and got what they paid for: within a year these cheaper “flush-mount, lay-flat” albums started to fall apart. The machine glued pages started to come off the substrate, and the colors started to transform. What a tragedy!
We have one simple goal: putting uncompromisingly exquisite albums in the hands of every couple and family out there
Encouraged by the feedback we received from our customers we opened up Amoré Albums. We have one simple goal: putting uncompromisingly exquisite albums in the hands of every couple and family out there, and making the whole process as easy as ordering something on Amazon.
We solve three major issues that customers face today:
1. Photographer-quality albums are simply unaffordable.
2. The alternatives available online are poorly made
3. Alternatives are too time-consuming and complex for the average person to design on their own.
Here is our solution to the first problem: cut out the insane margins photographers keep. Our luxurious, made-to-order, handmade Wedding albums start at just $160 USD for a gorgeous 6×8 album, able to fit at least 40 images. Problem solved!
The second problem is that the online alternatives to photographer-sold albums are just simply cheap and flimsy. Every wedding album at Amoré is locally handcrafted by master artisans with combined experience spamming more than three decades. We use premium materials bar none. Our albums are guaranteed to last a lifetime and then some, without any quality deterioration. Problem solved!
The third: even if you find a decent quality option online, you have to become a master album designer and use complex do-it-yourself software to put together your story. We never understood the logic of this. It takes anyone years to get good at something: how can someone be expected to master wedding album design in a few hours?

Amore Albums truly excels in solving this third problem. Our customers who approve a first draft often spend only 5-10 minutes in total! To remove all barriers to owning a beautiful wedding album, we decided we will do all the heavy lifting for our customers.
Our process is really simple. Once you use our awesome album configurator to choose your ideal wedding album and checkout, you are given the option to easily and securely upload your images to us or provide us with a pre-existing link.
People often receive thousands of digital files from their photographers. They are nice to have, but when you have to cut them down to a 100 photos the task is daunting to say the least! Our solution: offering free image filtering and selection on every order. Go ahead, send us thousands. Our skilled designers are experienced in extracting the best out of any large gallery.
We send you a first draft (openable in your browser) within 3 business days. Using our super-intuitive online platform, you can provide us with feedback, such as adding or changing certain images in a layout. If you prefer a more human touch, just get on the phone with your designer and discuss your vision. We even offer unlimited revisions!
After revisions are completed, you approve your album and it goes off to print. That’s it. Your part is done. It can’t get simpler than that. You receive your custom-made and beautifully packaged album within 2-3 weeks (free shipping included). Problem solved!
We at Amoré Albums aim to make things so, so easy that no one out there sitting with digital versions of their precious memories has any excuses left not to print them. Hence, this is our mission statement: We spread joy through the timeless medium of print, one treasured heirloom at a time.
