"Having our images in an album just ties the whole shoot together and makes it feel more romantic... Every time we open the album it's like we're looking at those pictures for the first time."
Heirloom Albums for Proposal + Engagement 03/16/2017
Flush mount albums are the most popular type of heirloom album I offer and my personal favorites. I knew before I started offering albums that they would have to meet my very high expectations for quality. They needed to be timeless, thick, and built to last generations of use. I wanted to inspire a sense of wonder and nostalgia with every page. It’s where I want our wedding images to live someday too.
The lay flat binding of these albums allows so much more flexibility with design. It’s one of the factors that was most important to me when choosing an album company. The left and right pages rest evenly with each other when open, eliminating the gutter found in a standard book. You can add full spread images, without losing any faces. The pages of the flush mount albums are also thick like card stock, so you never have to worry about tearing or earmarking.
One of my favorite parts about the flush mount albums is the quality and thickness of the cover materials. There are a lot of different color and material swatches to choose from, making it easy to compliment the unique look and feel of your wedding day. These are the kind of materials that somehow look even better with age.
Just like the title of a good book, a personalized deboss with your names and/or wedding date invite you into the story. There are a few different options to customize your flush mount album. Blind debossing (as shown) means no color or foil is added to the stamp. This looks great on almost all of the leather materials. Foil debossing is available exclusively for the Luxe Linen materials. Color options include gold, silver, and rose gold. But if you’d rather let images do the talking, you can add a picture cut-out cameo instead.
The mini albums make the perfect add-on gift for your parents. The minis are scaled down replicas of your own flush mount album…and they are stinkin’ cute. (I’m not the only one who thinks all travel-sized items are adorable too, right?!) The materials are recycled from the larger book to save on cost. Besides size, the only difference is they are a little too small to deboss. After my sister’s wedding, we gifted our parents these for Christmas and they lost it!
"We love to go back and relive those little (and big) moments on a day that went by so quickly, but was so special. It’s so nice to have this tangible thing that perfectly encapsulates what we felt that day."

The walnut presentation boxes are perfect for protecting, storing, and showcasing your Heirloom Album in your home. Each piece of wood is a labor of love, milled in a multi-day process to be refined.
"We keep our album on our coffee table and look through it all the time. The photos and design of the book tell the story of our love. It turned out so much better than we could have imagined."

I understand that wedding budgeting is tough and that a wedding album is an investment. Hard cover books are a more affordable alternative to the flush mount albums I offer. The biggest differences between these two types of albums is that the hard cover books do not have a lay flat binding, the option for leather materials, or a custom deboss. Instead, fine art press papers are bound into a fabric cover of your choice. I’m working on some designs right now- stay tuned for sample images soon!
