ORDERING + CREATION PROCESS

Using your online gallery system, you'll utilize the favoriting system to pick your favorite images for your album or book. As a curative suggestion, think about your shoot or event as a whole and include a variety of images to tell the entire story from start to finish. Keep in mind that an average of 2-8 images per spread is used in the layout process, and your page numbers will fluctuate accordingly. You can choose as few or as many as you like, but please note that some images may be omitted or added to create a more dynamic flow. If there are specific images that you absolutely totally cannot possibly fathom not having included in your album or book, please make note of those photos! 

When you're ready to place your order, you'll follow the link below to an online order form for the appropriate album or book. A $50 deposit ($15 for softcover books) is due before I begin the digital design process. PDF layouts will be sent along for your approval; you're encouraged to help me add, subtract, and tweak the layout to absolute perfection. All orders include two re-works after the first layout, additional re-works are $30. Once you've signed off on your layout, the additional album cost will be due and the physical album creation is underway!

Because of the creative and collaborative process of album and book creation, it generally takes anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks from start to finish. Physical production time is approximately 2 to 5 days, after which it is inspected for quality and overnighted to you.

The deposit fee is non-refundable once the design process has begun. The full cost is non-refundable after the album or book has been submitted for production.
