The Design Session


It’s several weeks after your wedding, you’ve enjoyed your honeymoon together as Mr. & Mrs. and you’re ready to relive the best day of your life all over again! This part of your wedding experience is the most fulfilling to me. It’s time to bring your story to life in a way that you can tangibly hold it, relive it and experience those feelings all over again.

During the first few moments together, we’ll chat and catch up and I’ll have your drink(s) of choice ready to make and pour for you!

We’ll start the session by going through your pre-designed album of what I think would be the perfect, complete wedding album. What does that mean? I want your future children or someone who wasn’t physically there that day to feel like they were. I want them to feel the laughter and the tears! I want to be a part of all the little moments – the tear falling from grandma’s eye as she witnesses her family tree continue to grow, the details and ambiance of your reception venue, or your flower girl and ring bearer giggling together in the corner. All these details are so important because they tell your COMPLETE story.

We will finalize the album design together at this session so you’ll have the opportunity to express what you love and make any additional alterations you’d like. I’ll also present you with cover options so your album is customized exactly how you’d like!

Once we have finalized the album, I’ll show you pre-designed wall art either as a big showpiece or as a collection of images in order to create a wow factor in your home!

Lastly, I’ll walk through any additional items you’d like to add on! These options include gift prints (8×10 prints or smaller) for your family and friends and thank you cards.

I pride myself on offering the best quality of products the industry has to offer at a variety of price points. Please review my heirloom catalog prior to the design session and discuss budgets together so that when you are presented with the images, I can help guide you through heirlooms and price points you’re comfortable with. My ultimate goal is to ensure you walk away with heirlooms you will be proud to show off. I can’t wait to create with you!
