wedding album

Hi all,

I thought maybe someone could help me. I got married a little over a year ago and my husband insisted that he wanted his uncle to take our wedding pictures. Big mistake on my part going along with that because we have a ton of photos (over 1000), but we don't actually have a wedding photo that turned out with the 2 of us! I don't know how that happened...but, I've cried many time just thinking about it. Anyway, I also didn't realize that it was our responsibility to go through the photos, edit them, and create our own wedding album. I don't want to do this!!!

I am willing to hire someone to do this for me because I just don't have the time or energy to do this. I would like to hire someone to 1) go through the photos and create a wedding album for us 2) hire a professional to fix up some of our photos and maybe blow up a photo (so we don't look distorted) so we actally a wedding photo that we can hand to our family and hang in our house.

Does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions for me? I live in Chicago and have no idea where to go or who to contact. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Sarah Smile

    I made my own album through Somerset.com but many of the online photo places will design the album for you.  Look at Somerset, Nations Photo Lab and Album Boutique.  They may require you to at least organize and/or select the photos though, I'm not sure.

    OUr photographer included a lot of pictures from our guests into a companion book for us.  It was amazing the way they looked when she was done with them *much different from how they looked originally.

    This was part of our package, but I would email her and ask for a quote.


    Good luck.  I'm sorry your pictures didn't turn out well.. Thats a big bummer :(

    Boroi Photography did that for me. I was married in May and needed basically the same thing done. Amanda is who I worked with and her email is [email protected] She also will direct you to where you can have your albums made at or make them for you. Hope this helps. :)

    Look at WeDesignAlbums.com.

    Just upload your images and they do the design, print and bind it for you.

    ~Congratulations and Good Luck!
