Alexandra Barfoot Photography Wedding Album FAQs

Updated: Jul 16, 2023

You may be newly married or have been married a while but haven't got round to creating your wedding album. If you have been thinking about a wedding album this is a great time of year to order. This blog is here to answer some frequently asked questions.

The beautiful quality albums are the perfect way to display your wedding memories and come in a range of sizes with a great selection of covers.

What size is the album?

There are two styles of albums I design and supply. A 'Fine Art Book' or a 'Matted Album'.

The Fine Art Book has images printed directly on to Fine Art paper.

The Matted Album has images mounted so the album will be much thicker.

Both albums come in a range of sizes so you can choose which style and size you prefer.

How many photos can we have in an album?

The albums are completely bespoke so the number is up to you. I find 75-120 photos is enough to tell the story of your day. Less is more.

Can we order parent albums? Yes mini duplicate albums can be ordered alongside your main album. They are identical in layout just smaller. These make lovely gifts. You didn't photograph our wedding can we order an album from you? Yes of course, as long as your wedding photography contract permits this. All I need is the high resolution digital images.

Do you have sample albums we can see?

Yes I have a range of sample albums and colour swatches so can get an idea of what style and colour you love the most before you order.

What is the design process?

I ask each couple to choose their favourite images and from these I design each page of your album. The design will tell the story from the start of your wedding day to the end combining a range of detail shots, family shots, couple portraits and natural moments. I will then send you a proof of the design and once you're happy the album will be sent to print.

I love all my photos and can't narrow them down, how do I choose?

This is a good problem to have! I can choose your photos for you telling the story of the day. You will get to proof the design before it goes to print so if you want to swap any out or any in at that stage it is no problem.

What is the turnaround time?

I can start designing your album when I receive your required images and album size. Once the layout is designed and the proof approved it is sent to print which takes around 28 days.

What colours are available?

There is a wonderful selection of colours available in the leather covers.

Can the cover be personalised?

Yes, you can add your names or names and wedding date to make the album even more personal.

Can we proof our album design?

Everything is proofed before print so you can make sure you are completely happy. Any changes are not a problem.

What price is a wedding album?

The wedding albums I design and supply are in a league of their own and made to last a lifetime. The album is tailored to your requirements so the price will depend on the style you choose and the number of photos you which to include.

8x8 from £345

10x10 from £395

My friend took a photo on the day can I include this in the design?

Absolutely. Just forward the high resolution copy and I can include this in your design.

I can't visit you to see your sample albums what can I do?

This is no problem. I have videos and photos of albums showing styles and colours which you can view in the comfort of your own home.
