Why Should I Purchase a Wedding Album From My Photographer?

Have you ever visited your grandparent’s house and sat with them pouring over their wedding album from 50 years ago? Moments like this remind us that in today’s digital age, while everyone has photo archives on their phones and computers, we all value having our memories printed in a physical form. Here at JPG Photo & Video, we think that your wedding day is an important day in not just your history, but your family’s history, and we want to help you preserve that with our high-quality archival albums.

With a complimentary design consultation with our resident album expert Cindi, creating an album from scratch has never been so easy. We’ll talk a little later about the process, but Cindi will relieve the burden of having to choose all of your images by creating a sample album during your first meeting so you never have to lift a finger!

So, you’re interested in an album. Let’s talk details!

Album tiers:

The 12×12 Galleria album is the top tier album we offer, and starts at $2,000.

The Galleria album is a very traditional style of wedding album, with each photo printed on high-quality archival paper and then mounted with matting onto the page. This is probably what your parents or grandparents have for their photo album. The Galleria the album for the couple who is looking for something classic and timeless, and who is enthusiastic about showcasing their favorite images from the day, rather than a quantity of images from the day.

The 10×10 Soho album is our next tier of album, starting at $1,500.

The Soho album is sleek and modern, with photos printed directly onto the archival-quality paper. You will never have to worry about fading. This is what we would consider our flagship album, and what most of our clients end up purchasing. This is for clients who want something a bit ‘newer’ looking, and who want to showcase a greater quantity of images.

*Both the Galleria album and the Soho album come with a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty*

The 10×10 Essex Plus album is our starter album, with pricing starting at $1,000.

With a sleek and modern style, photos in the Essex Plus album are printed directly onto its archival quality pages like the Soho. We like to consider this album a “parent album.” It makes a wonderful gift for parents of the bride and groom. The Essex Plus comes with a one-year manufacturer’s warranty.

You’ve purchased an album. What’s next?

Within a week of receiving your final, edited images, our resident album expert Cindi will be in touch to schedule your complimentary design consultation. You will let Cindi know what your focus for the album is, and she will put together your album spreads for you. You will then tweak the images during your appointment, and you will leave your appointment having seen your final design, chosen your cover image, font, and extras, and having paid in full, so remember to bring your checkbook!

When the album is sent to print, it will take 1-2 months in production, and then you will be notified when it is in the studio for pickup, or you can have it shipped to you.

While wedding clients are typically those most interested in purchasing albums, we do also offer different album options for other life milestones or fun shoots including family shoots, maternity, pet portraits, etc. We believe you should preserve any important memories in albums for future generations! Albums can also make an unforgettable gift to parents or grandparents for them to cherish the memories of the day as well.

If you are excited to see your memories printed in a keepsake piece, please reach out to our Studio Manager and resident album expert Cindi via email, cindi@jpgphotography.com. We look forward to preserving your memories with you!
