The day I left for my wedding in Argentina, a special box arrived in the morning. Inside was my gorgeous Picaboo book that I had created only days before. Unfortunately, I was not able to write about it until a month later, even though it deserved to be written about immediately. I have never been more impressed with a photo service website before and I have used various ones over the years. Not only was the book that I created exactly what I had envisioned, it was even better than I had envisioned!
I decided that the book would be the story of my engagement that took place in Buzios, Brasil 1 year ago. I chose “The Madison” design, which was suggested for anything bridal or travel related; the perfect fit for the book I wanted to create! The most difficult part about this whole process was deciding what pictures to include, however that was a fun challenge to have.
My 2 favorite parts about the book are the cover and the fact that you can combine photos and text. The front cover of the book is a laminated photo and the spine and back cover are hand-wrapped with genuine soft leather. The available leather colors are: black, brown, coffee, red, and pink. I chose red, since it is the color of love.
There are 20 pages in total and they are made out of thick, semi-glossed, archival quality paper. It truly feels as though it is a coffee-table book bought at Barnes & Noble.
The book is definitely an investment, but it is worth every penny. I am now convinced that this is best way to showcase your treasured photos and I will absolutely be creating more books in the future.
