Hi guys,

I'm shooting a couple weddings towards the end of the year; this is first time I will be doing weddings and I am not a professional photographer. I know most of the "professional" quality album companies only allow official pro photogs to be able to purchase their albums.

Do you guys know of any good album/printing vendors that do not require purchasers to be official "professionals"? I am looking for both high-end and somewhere between the 200-800 range.

Thanks!

Gome

You can always try to apply for any account using your Zenfolio gallery. I am not sure what the rules are when it comes to that. I have a website so that's what I used to open an account.

Worth a try IMO...

Budget album thread. Try labs rather than album vendors.

Cool, thanks guys. I'll try calling some of them and maybe i'll get lucky. If there's no luck, then I guess I'll try the local labs...

Does MPix require pro status?

If you sign up with Pictage (they have three levels so one might fit your needs), they sell high quality albums.

I applied for an Asuka Books account. It was confirmed within the hour (I just provided them my blog link). The problem now is designing the template! Oh poo ... haha.

mpix, millers, or whcc are probably great options too.

I'm just getting started with them and they've been nothing but great so far.
