I’ve always been a romantic… a lover of the old fashioned. Hardback books and cursive letters folded in stamped envelopes have always appealed to me. I know the heart behind an email may be just as cherished and thoughtful, but holding something in my hands just makes that thought a bit more tangible. And seeing an image on Facebook brings me joy, but only for a second before I scroll onto something else.
It’s for these reasons that I am a huge believer in having your wedding and engagement photographs printed! Having a physical print framed on the wall or lying open on the coffee table is a wonderful, daily reminder of your best day! So friends, today I’m introducing you to an amazing company called Montage! Montage creates beautiful leather bound photo books and the best part is that the product is completely customized by you. This incredible company is offering Bayside readers 20% Off through 9/30!
I’ve created photo books for years. In fact, I usually make one after every big trip that I go on. And I have to say… the companies that I’ve used in that past absolutely pale in comparison to Montage. Their templates are clean and classic, the books themselves are so elegantly bound, and the pages… oh don’t get me started on the pages. Can they even be called pages? They’re made of a thick stock that lays flat when you open the book which is perfect for an image that stretches across two pages. The photo doesn’t disappear in the binding of the book, but rather flows seamlessly between pages.
The process was so easy, which is really saying something because I am no design guru. I actually made my first Montage book for my graphic designer sister and it turned out immaculately! You just load your photos into an album on the site and the site automatically lays out the images for you. You have the option to switch out images or change the entire look of the page by scrolling through sample layouts.
My Montage book received the highest praise when it came in – tears from my mom as she flipped through the book to revisit my sister’s wedding day!
