How do I Select Photos for my Signature Photo Album?

We want to keep things simple and streamlined for you in creating your ‘photographer designed’ Signature Storybook Album. So we’ve created this step by step guide for sending us the photos that you would like included in your album.

How many pictures can go in my album?

We try to keep our album designs minimalistic and clean. Therefore, we request that you keep the image count between 20-30 “must have” images. Any more will make your page layouts cluttered and limit us in choosing layouts.

How do I get the photos to my photographer?

Follow this step by step guide:

  1. You’ll need to start at your online gallery. If you can’t find the email we sent you, just hover your mouse over the “Info” tab at the top of the page and navigate to the “clients” tab. Once the page loads, choose your wedding collection.
  2. Once you’re in your gallery collection, look for the “select photos” button at the top right hand corner of the page. It looks like this…Screen Shot 2016-07-17 at 3.55.03 PM

Then click “Share.”

  2. Turn around time for the design work is 1-2 weeks and 10 business days once you’ve approved the final draft.
