Hi-res photos make me squeel

[That's my wow I'm so excited right now face. Charming, right? I felt it fit with the mood of this post. Hi-res pictures! Huzzah!]

Our disc of hi-res images arrived today. I've been waiting for them to tackle my next and possibly last wedding project--our album. I decided to design the album myself, but now I'm torn as to what to use. Should I be adventurous and use a good old laserjet printer, my InDesign skills, and a cloth cover I make myself? Or do I go with convenience and use a book making site like Blurb? (You can check out the engagement photo book I made two years ago here.)

What is your favorite book-making site? What would you do if you had a thousand photos on your hands and the energy of a little schoolgirl that just got a brand new box of crayons?

Awww, love that photo on the right! I heard good things about Adoramapix!

Gina said...

Cute pics! I say be adventurous and print the photos. The books that can be made online are really nice and I have a few, but you so rarely see actual photo albums these days with actual printed photos.

You look SO pretty!

Brandi said...

Mo, you look GORGEOUS in these photographs! I love the smile on you in that second one. You just look so very very happy.
Have a great weekend, my dear! Hope to see you again soon.

So gorgeous! No idea about book making sites but I do know that those photos are incredible!

@BigAppleNosh: Thanks for the tip! I might try them out for the honeymoon book, and then if I like it do our wedding album with them! I'm concerned about the limit to 75 pages though. I have a lot to document.

@Gina: Good advice Gina, I was looking for a nice box I could use to just put the prints in it. It might be a nice way to hold a lot of prints and also have a book.

@Maya, Brandi, and percy: THANK YOU!! :D

The photos are gorgeous!! We're currently waiting for ours. So excited!! We're planning on making our own album too and I love Blurb ever since I stumbled upon them ages ago. But I really love your cloth-bound book wedding album idea and your mail art is incredible so I'd say go for it!!
