Our 8×8″ flushed mount Coffee Table Book is one of our most popular parent albums but we are now happy to add to the brand new 9×9″ matted Coffee Table Book! The new addition has the portability and beauty of its digital counterpart, but with a more traditional feel.
The images are supported by linen-textured mats and the album is covered in a complimentary, rich linen in either oatmeal or gray. It allows for 20 sides and about 40 images making it perfect for smaller celebrations, baby albums, or a gift for the in-laws.
It’s all in the details … the Coffee Table Book is beautifully presented in a matching clamshell box with magnetic closure. The album itself is tied shut with a ribbon, making it the perfect package.
Although this Coffee Table Book is small, it certainly makes a big impression!
Tad & Jonathan came to us with the most gorgeous photographs of their wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. They were married on New Year’s Eve of last year – what an incredible way to start 2013! It wasn’t hard to be inspired when creating their Fusion album while looking at the turquoise ocean and smiling faces.
We never would have imagined by looking at the photographs that the days leading up to the wedding were stormy and even the morning of, backup plans were being devised. Luckily, the clouds parted just in time for the ceremony and nature gifted Tad & Jonathan clear skies and a breathtaking sunset for their reception.
Tad & Jonathan included the front and back of their invitation to be used on the first page. A theme throughout their wedding was the Greek key, and we incorporated that design into their custom embossing. Look closely and you’ll find a T and a J!
The night ended with dancing and fireworks in the distance. We think it’s the most memorable way to start the new year and a life together.
Thank you, Tad and Jonathan, for allowing us to blog your album and for being such a pleasure to work with! Photography by Alec & T. Photography
Hina and Nilam celebrated their marriage over several days so when it came down to creating albums they had their work cut out! Fast forward from their 1500 image edit to …. 6 Asuka albums, a Fusion and a Vogue album.
They decided to showcase their engagement and NYC court wedding in a beautiful charcoal leather Fusion album with a custom emboss of their initials.
… these albums definitely take the award for the most colorful but more importantly they represent much love, happiness and laughter shared. Hina and Nilam so enjoyed celebrating their unity with their special people. These albums are a wonderful representation of what a wedding is all about.
At the same time as this post goes live Hina is sharing these memories with her mom who has just flown into NYC … Enjoy!
Gracie Paulson, our favorite fan, was inspired to recreate the album cover.
Asuka Books are at the top of their game .. beautiful printing, seamless binding and high-end paper stock. The one area that we thought they needed a little help was in their packaging, our clients deserve more than a bit of bubble wrap. We didn’t need too much persuasion to spend an hour or two browsing the halls of Mood to find soft, but durable fabric.
A little pedal pushing on the ol’ Singer and voila …. our new book envelopes.
Suzannah and Adam are one of our first customers to have their Asuka books warmly protected with a touch of Mood.
Here at The Album Room, we love to make wedding albums. One of our clients, Amanda, came to us with an additional project that we absolutely love! She picked the Fusion, which combines both digital and matted all in one album. In addition to her large 10×14″ wedding album, she decided to make a “Mini Me” album in the 7×10″ size to display her engagement and rehearsal dinner photographs.
Amanda chose the Creco Oil colored leather for her album cover and embossed in Arial font in ghost. She also added their wedding invitation in the main album and their rehearsal dinner invitation in the “Mini Me” to personalize each album.
When you have as many beautiful images as Amanda does, it’s hard to whittle it down. Although we try to aid our clients with our Cheat Sheet, sometimes narrowing it to 120 photographs is just not possible. That’s when the “Mini Me” album is the perfect choice.
The “Mini Me” album is also a great thank you gift to give to your parents or in-laws. There’s no better way for them to cherish the day of your wedding for the rest of their lives. A “Mini Me” also makes for a easily transportable album to show off when traveling for the holidays!
Thank you Amanda for allowing us to share these beautiful albums
A recent client of ours, Robin Lewis, came into The Album Room with just 50 snapshots of her wedding from 1972. After assisting her children with weddings and albums, she decided it was the time for her and her husband to have an album of their own.
Robin opted to go with the sleek, modern look of the Vogue album to showcase her photographs. She chose the 9×9 size so that it is easily transported and picked the resilient vinyl in putty for a rich-looking cover.
We scanned and enhanced the photographs to make them richer while still staying true to the look and feel of them. The combination of red-hued color images and the high-contrast black and whites translated well when assembled together in the album.
Robin also had a newspaper announcement and a wedding invitation saved that we integrated into the album. Now her keepsakes from her special day are preserved in an album that she and her husband, children, and grandchildren can enjoy for years to come.
Thank you Robin and Jay for allowing us to share these!

Anyone who has first-hand experience planning a wedding knows that there is more than one “special day” when it comes to getting married. Don’t let your hard work go to waste; all of the events that led up to the wedding deserve to be remembered just as much as the day of the ceremony and reception! Choose from our selection of beautiful albums to showcase the pictures from your engagement shoot or rehearsal dinner.
Here at The Album Room, we understand that an engagement is more than a plan to get married. It is a precious time in your life that you will always look back on and remember fondly as a celebration of the future. You know you’ve found ‘the one’ when you can’t wait for the rest of your life to begin, and what better way to capture the excitement than with an engagement album? Years from now, you can flip through it and remember how it feels to be a fiancée… warning: the butterflies in your stomach may resurface.
Speaking of butterflies, what about the feeling of “I’m getting married tomorrow?!” That kind of anticipation will go unmatched for the rest of your life. Your rehearsal dinner is a night in which you are surrounded by the people you love, and they are all there to celebrate your happiness. Commemorate the occasion with an album just as beautiful as the memories from this very special (and exciting!) night.
If you’re interested in creating either of these albums, consider the Jorgensen Fusion or Vogue, which both have a classic yet modern aesthetic. The Asuka Impact, which comes with a customizable presentation box, is also a popular choice. Whichever album you choose, the warm feelings that you will forever associate with this special time in your life will be back as soon as you open it up.
