Where to Buy the Perfect Wedding Album

Unique Wedding album designs

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.

We 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 spanning 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?

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.

Wedding albums for your Important day

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.

Where to Buy a Wedding Album

Picture this: Kylie and Jay, are super excited because they just got their dates! Their wedding is about a year away. Now comes the exciting time of booking vendors.

They approach a local photographer who shot a friend’s wedding: Photography by Jill. She turns out to be just as awesome as they remember her at the friend’s wedding. They are convinced to go ahead with her. But there is a problem.

Flushmount Wedding Albums Sold by Photographers

The exquisite, professional-quality custom album they saw comes with a whopping price tag! $2500 for a 12”x 12” album that can only fit about 50 images. Yes, it’s Italian leather, yes it’s thick flush-mounted pages, yes it’s handmade – but $2500!

Yes, it’s Italian leather, yes it’s thick flush-mounted pages, yes it’s handmade – but $2500!

The costs are adding up for the essentials: the venue, the dresses, the catering, the music, the invitations. They let Jill know that they have to forgo the album and buy only the digital files.

Fast forward: about 4 months after the wedding, Kylie and Jay are decorating their new home. They realize that nothing in their home commemorates their wedding day. The pictures Jill took turned out to be even better than they could have imagined, but they are still sitting in their Google Drive! Sound familiar yet?

Wedding albums for photographers

They start thinking they should probably get those digital images printed. They think about the $2500 quoted to them and wonder: there has to be another way! So they look into a do-it-yourself solution.

Do-it-Yourself Custom Albums Builders

A quick Google search brings them to Blurb, a popular DIY photo book service. $70 for a wedding book compared to $2500? That can’t be right, can it? They go deeper and realize a few things: these ‘photo book’ wedding albums are far from the quality they were shown by their photographer, and you have to design it all yourself.

Other DIY Albums Sites:

The menu and options were so overwhelming and complicated. Both Kylie and Jay are professionals working stressful jobs and often put in 70 hour weeks! There is no way they can make the time to understand all this only to settle for a cheaper quality product. It just doesn’t add up.

Old-School Scrapbook Style Albums

They look at solutions on Amazon for scrapbook and photo-insert albums. Sure, it costs $15 and they can go to Costco and get prints – but this tacky solution just doesn’t feel right. All their friends have custom wedding albums with pictures printed right on to the beautiful, thick flushmounted pages.

Having dismissed these options Kylie and Jay feel stuck for a solution. Where can they get professional quality albums, like the samples their photographer showed them, at a reasonable price-point that doesn’t require them to put in hours and hours of work?

But, there is an alternative! We will covered it in our next article, so stay tuned! Sign up below to get it right in your inbox.
