“We really appreciate the time and effort she put into capturing our day how we wanted it. We love all the great photos of our wedding day, it really helps us remember how special each part of the day was. The story book that was a part of our package was fantastic too, all of our family loves it and has commented about how nice it is. We would definitely recommend Laura!! Thanks again for everything!!”

3 easy steps, and you’ll have your Story Book only a couple months after your wedding!
1. Once your photos are edited, I’ll email you the link to your online gallery as well as the proofs for your Story Book. I do all of the hard work upfront, creating a custom design with all of my favorite photos from your day. As you’re going through your online gallery, I recommend marking your favorite photos.
2. You go through the proofs together, and take note of any photos I chose that you want swapped out for different ones. Typically, this is just a handful of photos. This is a great middle ground of me doing the bulk of the work upfront but you still have a say to get the perfect book with all of your favorite images.
3. I make the changes you request, send you the final proof for your approval, place the order and then you have your wedding Story Book in your hands within a couple months of your wedding!
“I’ll get around to doing something with my wedding photos someday…”
Couples who don’t go through a process like this say they will get around to making an album after the wedding but rarely ever do, or if they do, it’s years later and a lot of work.
It can be a daunting process to sort through hundreds of photos and narrow them down to a few for the album that tells your story in a way that makes sense. It can also be difficult to find a place that makes good quality, affordable albums that will last for a long time.
By doing it this way, you’ll have an awesome, tangible reminder of the beginning of your adventure together!
Take a look at the two albums below. One is a professional, flush mount wedding album that Lumos Couples receive with their wedding collection and the other is a standard photo album.
Get this- they are from the same company and both have the same number of pages, but the flush mount album is much thicker and sturdier so it can last through the generations as a heirloom. See this blog post for why this is so important.
Your wedding day is going to be so much fun! The best day ever and you want a tangible reminder of it that will do it justice. With the flush mount albums, the colors will be vibrant and true-to-life so your memories are represented accurately. The photos can be stretched seamlessly across two pages to invite you into the scene and make you feel like you’re right back there experiencing your day.
Say thank you with a gift Story Book
You shouldn’t have any trouble picking out your parent’s Christmas gifts the year you get married! Most likely, your parents did so much to make your wedding a dream come true and a keepsake album telling the story of your day makes a great gift for them.
These work well for grandparents, parents, the wedding party or anyone else who was involved that you want to thank. The gift Story Books are identical to yours except they are not flush mount. The pages are still lay-flat though so the photos can stretch beautifully across both pages.
“She was extremely helpful as far as questions, open to suggestions, and very punctual. Her photos really showed our day perfectly and we can’t thank her enough! She enabled this stunning story book, it perfectly captures precious memories of our wedding that are irreplaceable. Thank you so much Laura. Definitely recommend her!”
