Frequently Asked Questions
Most frequent questions and answers
Totally fair question. The truth is that no two weddings or couples are the same, and for us to give you an accurate quote, we need to meet with you to go over your big day. We can often save a couple money by building a package that meets what they actually need in their coverage, rather than what they originally thought was necessary.
This is a HUGE decision, and we want you to make sure that we are the best choice for you. We can meet evenings, weekends, and for clients that are out of the area we can meet via Zoom or Skype as well.

Step 1 – Book an Appointment
We can meet with you either via Zoom or in person at our studio in Valencia, California. During your consultation we will show you wedding albums, as well as a detailed walk-through of our styles, portfolio, and customize your wedding coverage personally for you.
Step 2 – Choose Your Package
We will put together options that will suit your wedding and needs based on your wedding. We never will try to oversell you coverage that you do not need, and all of our packages include an album, engagement session, and plenty of coverage. Our goal is to find the best option that works for you, you can always add more options later
Step 3 – Book Your Date
We will present you with a contract and summary of your coverage. Once that is signed electronically, you will be able to pay your deposit, and once you do your date will be locked in! Now we can schedule your engagement session and send you our timeline and vendor recommendations while we prepare for your shoots.
Step 4 – Create Your Memories!
Our process of working with you is all-inclusive. We have a team of people that work together to make sure that you are well taken care of from planning your shoots, to designing your final album. Your story is unique, and we understand that, so no clients get cookie-cutter template albums. We customize your experience uniquely for you.
We live in a digital world, but some things are still meant to be printed. Your wedding album is the cornerstone of our work on your wedding. It is the final product we will provide to you, and will have a special role to play in your family for generations to come. There are a few things to understand about wedding albums.
1. Your Wedding Album is a Storybook, not a Scrapbook
Our goal isn’t to take your wedding photos, and then make an album out of the photos that were taken. Our artists are trained specifically to shoot with intention of album design in mind. That means that they may photograph 7 detail images vertically, and then one large horizontal ring shot that will go on the right side of the page. They may shoot your first look all in the same orientation and composition, with the intention of laying out the images on a spread to tell a story in motion. Point here is that your artist is not just a “picture-taker,” but specifically trained on how to capture stories that will end up in a layout.
2. We shoot and design with the intention to invoke Memory
They say that images are directly tied to memory, but did you know that something as simple as a facial expression can influence how you perceive that memory? Our wedding albums are designed to not only make you remember what was happening on your wedding day, but also to make you remember how you were feeling when the images were taken.
3. Quality Craftsmanship is key to preserving your memories
Our wedding albums are handmade in Italy by a single person from start to finish. Then go through quality control and inspection before being delivered to you. We searched the world to provide the absolute best possible quality to our clients, and that is why we are one of the only studios in California to give our clients a limited lifetime warranty on our wedding albums.
4. We will handle the entire design process
Our studio will design a book including every moment of your wedding day. We will then set an appointment with you, and help you to choose the perfect book to compliment your home. This isn’t an album that is intended to sit under a bed somewhere, we want you to display it as artwork in your home.
