What album to choose?

The world is full of photo albums. But to obtain the highest quality wedding albums, one must use the services of a qualified professional photographer. Only through a professional photographer are high quality professional bridal and parents albums made available.

What is a professional album?

Perhaps it is easier to describe what a professional album is not. It is not an inexpensive 3 ring 100 page magnetic book, a postbound scrapbook, or a simple 3 1/2×5 or 4×6 pocket style camera store album. Rather, it is an album that accepts all sizes of professional prints from 10×10 to 4×5 (or 3 1/2×5), mounted into a matted page, and viewed without the need to turn the album sideways.

Acetate or open viewing?

The best professional albums offer open, reversible viewing of your photos – not covered by an acetate material. Acetate covering creates glare and can cause photo discoloration depending upon the acetate used. Over time, chemical migration between the photos and certain types of acetates is not uncommon. To be sure, insist on non-acetate, open viewing pages and mats. Also insist on reversibility of the photos and mats so that a vertical and horizontal photo can be viewed from the same direction – without having to turn the album sideways.

Types of professional album binders

Generally there are 3 types of bindings available. In low end professional, one can find postbound and pin hinge (piano hinge page assembly), where the pages themselves make up the spine of the album. Generally these binders come with taped edges and some type of acetate covered pages. In better studios, one can find a much more professional type album – one that looks like a bound book. A one piece cover is the most sturdy of all albums. It is rare that an album in this category would have anything but open viewing, non-acetate, reversible pages.

Bound book types

Two types of bound book type albums are available through high end professional studios. One is an actual library book where the pages are custom designed and are bound into the book’s spline. Generally these albums are the most expensive even though some of their covers may be only of a “pigskin” quality leather. Delivery time is another factor. Expect 6-16 weeks delivery for a custom, library bound album. Also they are generally quite expensive. The second type of book has a one piece cover that accepts individual pages into its spine receivers. If the page edges are gilded gold or silver, it is hard to tell this album from a fully bound book since both have an elegant block look to them.
