The vows were said, the dances were danced, the drinks were drunk, and the day went by in a flash — just like everyone said it would. Your wedding day is a marked moment in your life that you’ll return to again and again. So, it’s important that your wedding photo album can keep up! You need one that checks all the boxes: keepsake quality that will last, integrity in photo coloring, simplicity in design, and a well-made cover that won’t bend or break over time.
We’ve seen our fair share of printed photo albums and so we were curious to try the new Signature Photo Album from Mpix. Mpix is a solid spot for premium photo goods and stationery but it’s the leather photo album with that layflat binding that caught our eye. We designed our own album and let’s just say, we have thoughts.

Designing the Signature Photo Album
First things first, the design process! Once you get your images uploaded to Mpix’s album builder, the process of actually putting together the album is super simple — even fun. They have a LOT of options for page layouts to drag and drop your photos but it’s not overwhelming. It only took about an hour to create! Overall, it was a user-friendly experience and we were excited to see how it looked IRL.
Judge by the Cover
It turns out this wedding photo album looks good IRL. We chose to emboss the cover with the couple’s name, but you could also use a wedding date, the location, etc. You can also choose between different colors for the leather cover but here’s a tip from us: pick a color that matches the aesthetic of the wedding! We went with a darker color to complement the blue hues of the photos inside. The box that the album came in also matched the cover, which is the kind of attention to detail we love.
This is truly a coffee table-worthy book! The pages are thick, archival-quality papers and you can choose from a variety of finishes. We went with the standard finish which feels really nice.
A Quality Wedding Photo Album
The true test of a good wedding photo album is the quality. We can, without a doubt, say that the Signature Photo Album meets the mark. It’s super professional and the coloring + integrity of the photos really hold up.
How good is that full spread?!
The Gift of Memories
A toaster is great, but have you ever considered a photo album? Honestly, if you’re part of the wedding party and looking for a unique gift, this is it. We love the idea of offering to purchase the wedding photo album as a gift to the couple!
Whether you’re planning a wedding or you got married recently (or not so recently — anniversary gift, anyone?), Mpix is a solid option to design your wedding photo album. WE APPROVE. Don’t forget to use your code mpixalbums3021 for 30% off!
