Now that the wedding is over, the photos are online and you've recovered from all the fun, let's get started on your album!

Your album will end up with roughly 80 images inside. We'll work together to design an album that tells YOUR story and highlights the events of the day.

You will ALWAYS proof and approve the album before it is printed. 

  1. You choose up to 50 photos from your wedding.
    • These photos will be in your album, no matter what. I typically suggest you break it down into categories and choose 2-3 of your favorites for each. This usually helps keep it from getting overwhelming. Remember, I'm going to add detail shots of flowers, cakes, rings and other images that will complete the story of your day, so unless you have one you just love, you don't have to worry about those.
      • Suggested Categories:
        • Getting Ready
        • Bride Posed
        • Groom Posed 
        • Ceremony
        • Posed Family Shots
        • Couple Shots
        • First Dance
        • Parent Dances
        • Cake Cutting/Toasts
        • Dancing/Guests
    • If it seems too overwhelming, you certainly don't have to choose the images. You can always just select any posed friend/family photos you want included in the album and leave the rest up to me. Again, you will ALWAYS proof and approve the album before it's printed.
       
  2. Once you've chosen your images, you'll need to send those selections to me. To do that, create a "favorites" list on the web site titled "ALBUM". Once all your images are in that list, use the "share with photographer" option to send the list to me.
     
  3. You choose a cover from the following options. Each cover has a "code". You'll need to make note of the code you like, as well as if it includes a photo and/or text. The following links will open a PDF for you to look through and choose from.
  4. Once you've narrowed down your photo choices and chosen your cover, you just need to send that information to me using this form.
    • Please note, the form must be filled out in its entirety in one sitting.
    • If the above link doesn't work, please copy and paste the following into your browser:
         http://www.alicaliphoto.com/album-information-submission-form
    • Your cover and photo choices must be submitted within 6 months of the wedding date, or it is subject to an additional fee of $200.
  5. Once your form is submitted, I will contact you with any questions and put together a design for you. This process can take up to 3 weeks.
     
  6. Typically, I am able to include all of your selected images. If I think a photo is not a good fit, or will disrupt the flow of the album, I may choose to exclude it. You will ALWAYS be notified if any images from your selections are excluded.
     
  7. Retouching is done at the discretion of AliCaliPhoto. Minor retouches like small blemishes are typically included at no additional cost. Retouch requests that usually incur fees would include requests such as removing an entire person from a posed photo.  If you have specific requests for retouching please include that in the notes when you fill out the album submission form.
     
  8. When the design is completed, I will email you a link where you can proof your album. At this point, you can leave comments and let me know if you'd like to make any changes. 
    • The first set of changes are included in the album cost.
    • In order to keep your album on track, I ask that you let me know of any changes within 7 days. If changes are not submitted within 7 days, production of your album may be delayed and the estimated turn around time may be longer than originally estimated. 
  9. Once any changes have been made, I will send you another proofing link. At this point you will approve your album or request more changes. Please keep in mind that changes requested at this point will incur a small fee that is based on the complexity of the additional changes.
     
  10. Once your album is approved, I will send it to print. Then comes the hard part... Waiting... Since all of the albums are custom designed and hand-bound, the whole process from the submission of your selections until holding the final product in your hand can take 12 to 16 weeks.
