A friend I work with used Momento and her album was gorgeous, she even included a reading they had in their OOS on the back cover. My parents have also used Momento and been really happy :D

I used Blurb for the parent albums. Wasn't thrilled with the quality first off, but once I had done some noise reduction work they were better. They were much cheaper than momento so we also bought grandparents albums and I made smaller versions for the bridesmaids.

For a profesh quality one (our album) I used sweet memory albums http://www.sweetmemoryalbums.com/index.html. Much more expensive but amazing!!!! Prints quality is as 100% perfect, they are thick card pages and each spread lays flat. And you can ask them to do any of the tricks they put in professional albums like metallic pages or fold out. Excellent communication which I didn't find with Blurb.

I wouldn't recommend fishpond for albums, their templates will only accept the aspect ratio that is shot with a point and shoot digital camera, not the normal 3:2 ratio that your good photos will be. And their print quality is nothing to write home about. Although I do use them to print photos, sorry, trying not to sound too mean since its a company I actually use a lot!

Hope that helps.

i used snapfish for photobooks for my BMs (it was their chrissy present). they cost about $30 each for 20 pages, leather cover. they looked fantastic. the original price was meant to be $170, but i googled snapfish coupon codes and got $70 off :)

I've used Photobook Australia and I waited until they had a 60% of sale through their facebook page.

The quality was excellent and my book arrived within the week :D

I have used Snapfish and have been really happy.

I put my albums together, and leave them sitting "saved" in my "photo projects". Then I wait for a sale, and order it!

I agree with narileena. I used Photobooks. They have a buy one get one free deal and I found it really easy to use and the quality is really good.

I had an online Shutterfly share site for all the wedding photos. I made up an album through them last week using all the non-pro pics just to see what the quality was like. I managed to get a 32 page 8"x8" hardcover album for $24AUD which is the cheapest anywhere that I could get one. I thought I'd give them a go to see what the quality was like. Should be here within the next two weeks so I will let you know the quality then.

I highly recommend Momento. It is so user friendly and has so much flexibility. It has plenty of options for page backgrounds, templates, embellishments and frames. They also have discounts for the more books you order the bigger the discount as well as having regular special offers. The quality is great. We did all our parent albums in no time at all thru Momento and each book was unique. We included thank you messages in the front of each as well as our vows and other wording. Everyone loved them. Momento now have even bigger size albums to chose from in square, landscape or portrait styles.
