Custom Handmade

There’s no question that technology has made it easier and faster to share your digital images with anyone online. But nothing matches the experience of spotting your wedding photo as you walk through a room or reminiscing as you leaf through your album with a friend. The day is done, we’ve captured many wonderful moments. Now what?

Memories are better in print

To make sure you have access to the best printed products possible, your online gallery has a shop section that’s easy to order from and fulfilled by two of the best photo labs in Canada. Your custom handmade photo album is made by Dekora Album Co. and I promise you will love it!

Whether you've prepaid for an album or are considering one now, photo albums are my favourite thing to put together for clients and I’m happy to chat more about the options available to you!

Album FAQ's

How many pages can I have in an album?

The highlight album has 10 spreads (20 pages) and features the most important moments of your day. The full length album has 25 spreads (50 pages) and features more images, telling the full story of your day. Additional spreads between 10-25 spreads are $52 each.

How do I order an album?

Whether you’ve prepaid with your wedding collection, or are interrested in ordering an album now, please reach out to me via email at info@rachaelshrum.com or through the contact page. I’ll be in touch shortly to set up an album design meeting.

Do you offer discounts?

Yes, if you order more than one copy (has to be within the same order) you'll receive 15% off the duplicate copies. The 8x10" books make for great parent albums!

Do I have to design the album?

Nope, I take care of all that for you! If you've selected favourites in your gallery I'll use those in the first draft, otherwise I'll select images to best tell the story of your day. You'll be able to make changes to the first draft, and second draft if needed. Based on your style I may suggest custom elements that would compliment the photos well.

Can I see a sample album?

Unless you are located in the Halifax area, I can't show you a physical copy. However, I do believe the images and video on this page will give you a pretty good idea!

How many images are included?

A 20 page highlight album (10 spreads) looks great with about 30-40 images. Filling each page with 1-3 images allows the photos to breathe and every moment can be appreciated.

Can I purchase an album after the wedding?

Yes, of course! By prepaying for an album with your collection you do receive a service bundle discount, but feel free to take the time and think about it if you're not ready to purchase beforehand.

How do I know what images to include?

If you have favourites, definitely let me know which ones and I'll try to include them. If you aren’t able to pick favourites that’s totally okay! Once you see the first draft you'll get a feel for the flow of the album and have a better idea of images you want to swap in or out.

How many pages do we need?

The highlight album included in two of the wedding collections has 20 pages (10 spreads). That's enough to feature a few photos from the important moments of your day, such as the ceremony and portraits. The full length album (50 pages) features images from your whole day, from getting ready to the dance party at the end of the night.

How long will it take to receive my album?

Design/layout duration: up to 5 business days.
Revision/layout changes: 4 to 5 business days.
Production time: 15-20 business days once the order is placed.

Do you offer returns?

Prior to sending your album to the printer we will have multiple rounds of revisions to make sure you are 100% with the design. Since the album is custom and handmade, I cannot offer a refund once it has been printed.

In the rare case that it is damaged in shipping, or there is a mistake in the design that you did not approve, I will provide a replacement album at no charge.

Do you ship to my address?

Yes, shipping anywhere in Canada is included in the album price! Shipping outside of Canada may be an additional cost and determined as needed.

How do I care for my album?

You album will arrive in it's on protective box, with gloves and a card with care instructions. Storing your album flat, keeping it in a humidity controlled space and having clean hands when flipping through the pages you will ensure it's longevity.

Will I see a draft before my album goes to print?

Yes, you will see at least two, sometimes a third.
