Exclusively for Adventure Instead Couples

HAND-CRAFTED STORYTELLING ALBUMS

Your story matters.

Your wedding day matters.

Your memories of it matter.

Don’t let them get buried on a hard drive or lost in the cloud

THIS IS NOT JUST AN ALBUM

it’s a time-machine

Just hold it in your hands and get transported back in time, to re-live your wedding day anytime you want

With no distractions

No awkwardly digging through a hard drive…
Scrolling back years on your phone…
… or waiting for photos to load required

Listen, we’re on the same page…

WE’RE NOT REaLLY INTO BUYING “STUFF” EITHER

But this…

This is an experience.

Imagine…

Sitting around your coffee table or curled up on your couch, showing off your wedding photos, in the best way possible. 

Your favorite photographs of your day are artfully arranged in a powerful story, which you can flip through with your own two hands, and reminisce about how amazing your experience was.

It’s immersive, and transformative—like reading an addictive, page-turning novel.


You can pick it up off the table or the shelf, any time you want, and instantly re-live your day for yourself…

And it’s not just about re-experiencing your own story…

Every time you pick it up or pull it off the shelf…

it creates new memories…

with old & new friends, or old & new family members, for the rest of your lifetime.

Your album is the final “detail” of your wedding day…

THIS IS AN EXPERIENCE WORTH INVESTING IN

YOUR DAY DESERVES MORE

…than some pixels on a screen

…or a folder on your computer

Give it a real home… in your home

sometimes, diy is overrateD

Trust us…this is one of those times

Yes, you could go spend weeks trying to make your own album yourself

… research the best printing companies

… trying to pick out the best photos from your gallery

…agonizing over layout decisions and continually re-arranging spreads

And when things get busy, for most people, it falls to the bottom of their “to do” list

… Becoming one of those things they feel guilty about every time they think about it 

And worst-case scenario, after all those hours, it still might not turn out the way you imagined. 

We don’t want that for you & your gorgeous images.

Let us save you the hassle

Save time

You have a busy life and have enough “to do’s” – let us take this off your hands. This is what we’re pro’s at after-all.

feel proud

You can stop feeling guilty about not having a gorgeous wedding album to show off when someone asks.

We’ve done the hard work finding the best quality albums that feel deserving of your wedding day—these will last forever.

EVERYONE LOVES A GOOD STORY

Duplicate albums for parents, friends, and family… always 40% off

Give those who weren’t there in person, a tangible way to experience exactly what your day was like—and feel connected to both of you & your amazing wedding day.

It’s the perfect way to say…

“Thanks for caring about us… we love you too”

Now to the fun part…

What are these albums like?

70 pages (35, 2-page “spreads”)

We found the perfect length of album that tells the whole story of a full day or partial day elopement—with plenty of room to showcase the best of the best shots, as well as all the important in-between moments (it fits about ~100 photos). For multi-day elopements & intimate weddings, you can order a “Volume I” and “Volume II” to have a two-volume epic of your wedding experience. 

Seamless spreads with thick “layflat” pages

We tested 7 different professional labs to find the best quality matte album pages. With 70 pages (35, 2-page spreads), this thing is THICK and weighs an impressive 9 lbs. Each page of your album is thick & sturdy with a 1.3mm weight (640 gsm)—that’s 25x thicker than your average printer paper. Each 2-page spread is free from an ugly “seam” down the middle, so you can view your photos in their full panoramic glory. 

Museum quality matte paper with vibrant & vivid ink

Each spread (2-page layout) is printed using the same technology used for gallery prints in a museum—rated to last generations without discoloring, yellowing, or fading. The archival inks give you crisp & clean “whites,” true contrasty “blacks”, and true-to-life skin tones and colors so that your photos look better on these pages than they do on a screen—and exactly how we intended when we edited them. 

Clean & beautiful minimalist layouts that showcase your images

Your photos are the star of the show here—so there’s no need for any overly complicated designs that might look dated in 20 years. Your design will be simple, clean, and timeless with 70-pages (35-spreads) of room to print all of your best photos BIG, so you can see all of the details and have a truly immersive experience.

Endless Ways to Customize with Cover Materials, Binding Styles, and Debossing Designs 

Just like your wedding day, we want the experience of holding your album in your hands to feel “uniquely yours”—which is why there are endless ways to customize it to look & feel like “you” and remind you of your day. Pick from 12 cover material options in full grain leather, eco leather (vegan), and book cloth. You also get to choose your binding style, debossing design, and your debossing color to make it completely personalized. It’s the final “detail” of your wedding day.

Beautiful, Eco-friendly Album Box with Long-Term Care Instructions

We want your album to last for generations—which is why every album is shipped inside a beautiful biodegradable box, exclusively designed for Adventure Instead couples. We include care instructions in each box that will ensure that you can store your album with ease and know how to make sure your it lasts beyond a lifetime.
