Capturing memories that you’ll cherish forever is an essential part of your wedding—and photos give you a way to relive your best day again and again. Long after the rings have been exchanged, the cake has been eaten, the music has ended, and the guests have left, it’s the images of your wedding that will bring back the joy of that special day. And without a doubt, you’ll definitely want a special place to store and revisit all of the moments you hold dear. So finding just the right wedding album is paramount!

When it comes to the look of your wedding album, the variety of materials and colors are seemingly endless. Leather (faux or natural) and linen are classic choices that will steal the show on your coffee table, while standing the test of time. Photographer Gianna Keiko recommends choosing darker hues for a wedding album cover because they're more forgiving as the years go by.

With so many options to choose from, securing the perfect keepsake for your photos can seem daunting—but, not to worry, there’s something out there for everyone! Whether you’re set on a traditional album with all of the bells and whistles or craving something unexpected, we’ve got you covered.

What to look for in a wedding photo book

An album is something you'll treasure and look at forever, so make sure it's something you'll want to keep on display.

Choose natural, long-wearing materials like leather or linen for a keepsake you'll be flipping through for years to come.
