Album design & ordering information
This page is intended to help our clients through the wedding album design & ordering process.
Here is a rough timeline of how long things will take after your wedding:
- 1-3 days after wedding: Full slideshow will be online and posted to http://www.blaineandbethany.com/slideshows/
- 3-4 weeks after wedding all your photos will be posted to our online proofing system at http://www.blaineandbethany.com/proofing/
- Selecting the images, initial design, and revisions of the design takes usually approximately 2-3 weeks
- After the design is nailed down, we’re all ready for ordering the album, choosing covers, parent albums, etc. After the order is placed, printing and shipping takes approximately 5-7 weeks to arrive on your doorstep.
STEPS FOR ALBUM ORDERING
Go to your wedding and browse through all your photos. There are lots, so it may take some time! When you click an images thumbnail to view it larger, you have the option to “add to favorites”. Clicking this adds the image to your favorites folder. Add roughly about 200 of your favorite images to this folder, and then we can design an album directly from those images. If you’d like lots of spreads, then select even more images. If you’d like less spreads, then select less images. You can always remove spreads later on in the revision process as well.
*Alternatively, if you’d like to leave the photo selections up to us, we are fine with that too. Please just let us know and we’ll edit & select images that we believe tells the story of your day in the best way possible.
When you’ve finished going through all the images and have all your images selected, then click on “My Favorites” to view all your selected photos. You can easily remove images from this folder by clicking “remove”. The number on the top left is how many favorites you have selected.
Send us an email when you have all your favorites selected and then we’ll start custom designing your beautiful album. Please let us know at this point if you have any special instructions or requests for the design of the album. Every album is totally custom designed depending on the images and lots of other factors. Click here

When the album is designed, we’ll email you a link to an online gallery of your designed pages. You can revise the design and swap out photos twice without incurring any extra fees. So please be thorough and specific in your desired revisions. Some people prefer to email a list of revisions, and some prefer to talk over the phone. Either is fine.
Ordering. We’ll let you know about your cover options, final pricing information, etc and then send off the order. We will need to collect any additional payments at this time.
