Shutterfly is a pro at printing (it’s the best online photo printing service we’ve ever tested) and offers three great wedding photo album choices, ranging from $22.49 to $281.25. The standard hardcover books are the lowest in the price range and include 20 standard pages, with upgrades available. The premium photo books contain deluxe flat lay pages with a double-thick stain finish. The professional flush mount albums, which are the most expensive of the bunch, have seamless spread pages and come in a protective storage box. You can either design the album yourself with custom backgrounds and layouts or use the Make My Album service, where professional designers will use your photos and create a beautiful display for you. It’s that easy.
