In this age of the “shoot and burn” photographer, more and more people receive nothing but a disc or a boxful of negatives after their wedding or portrait session, and nothing else. So what do you do if you want the beautiful albums the high-end photographers offer, but didn’t/couldn’t hire one of them for your celebration? Or perhaps you have a hard drive full of personal photos of your family life that you’d like to be able to flip through without booting up the computer?

That’s where I come in.

I have years of experience working in production and album design at an award-winning boutique photography studio and now I can offer these same services to you: custom design (no cheesy templates, ever! ) and access to the finest printing and bookbinding. The companies I work with to produce albums are strictly to-the-trade, and produce a finer product than consumers can access. I’ve assembled a range of options to fit almost every budget, and want to work with you to tell your story with a book you’ll still be happy to show people 50 years from now.

Also, I will treat your images as though I had been your photographer — which means if they need a little love, whether it be color correction to retouching, each will get my personal attention before they are printed. And you get hi-res copies of your improved images along with your book.

Every book is custom; we start with your images and your personal style and let the book grow naturally from there. Read less

I worked with Jane as both a photographer and a newlywed and was impressed by her work in both capacities.

As photographers, my husband and I wanted to add albums to our offerings, but we weren't sure how to go about it. We know there are plenty of places to upload photos and get a book online, but our top concerns were the quality of the final product, the beauty of the design, and how well the final product showcased our images. The albums Jane designed for us were SPECTACULAR. She is an incredibly talented designer, and she was really easy to work with. Her proofing system allowed us to make comments on individual pages and review changes. She was very quick to make changes, and always deffered to our tastes and preferences while really giving everything her great sense of design. Our clients were absolutely thrilled.

As newlyweds, we didn't want to fall into the classic photographer's trap of having stacks of albums and prints of our clients and never getting an album of our own wedding, so we went to her for the album design. As she did with our clients' images, she culled through all the photos for the best edit, arranged them beautifully, and was receptive and fast with our requested revisions. When my mom got the album, she took it everywhere-her work, to relatives' houses, even the beauty salon! My mother in law got her album, and she called to say that it brought her to tears, that the design was just gorgeous, and that, even though she'd been looking at the digital files for months, the album showed the photos in a whole new light.

Seriously-if you are interested in getting an album of your wedding, portraits, bodouir session, etc. contact Jane. She will make you something so pretty, for a totally reasonable price, and will be incredibly easy to work with in the process!

I used a la carte albums to create a matted album after my October 2011 wedding. Jane was easy to deal with right from the start, and provided tons of clear information upfront about the different album options available. Giving feedback and comments on the album design throughout the process was simple. This was the best experience I could have imagined for my wedding album, and I'm so thrilled with the final product! I would highly, highly recommend Jane of a la carte albums.

Jane of A La Carte Albums was wonderful from beginning to end. She was incredibly great to work with, happy to work within our budget and very responsive to all our questions and comments by email and phone. She has tons of options for her albums, and when we weren’t sure exactly what to pick but just had a general direction, she was amazing at pointing us towards a couple things she thought might work. We loved working with her, and we could not be happier with the album we received just last week. (Our priority was to have beautiful bright-colored photos, and they look perfect!) We would absolutely recommend her to anyone!

My husband and I just received our wedding photo albums from A La Carte Albums and are so happy with the final products. Jane helped us select a number of photos for the album, edited the images, designed the album layout, and had two different types of albums produced for us. She provided guidance where we requested, but let us make suggestions and stay involved in the process. Jane was incredibly patient with me when I asked tons of questions, and walked me through all my options. I requested that we use all vegan materials for the album and she had no problem doing extra research to make the album something I loved. Overall, the process was smooth and even fun. There were a few minor errors during production and Jane immediately fixed them so that our final products were perfect. My husband and I would highly recommend working with A La Carte Albums.

Jane was fantastic in helping me put together my wedding album. Even though we are on different coasts, she always made time to answer any questions that I had and stayed on the phone with me for as long as it took to figure out what I wanted. Her suggestions were fantastic. When I received my album is was more beautiful that I had hoped... it was perfect! The way that she organized the photos you would have thought that she was at the wedding. I wanted a traditional romantic album and that is exactly what I got. We will enjoy it for years to come!

I was one of those brides who thought she could make her wedding album on her own. And after 4 years, I discovered that was I wrong! Luckily, while doing a web search I stumbled upon Jane's website and sought out her services. And I must say that both my husband and I are very pleased with the results.

Jane is really (and I mean really) patient. We had a Skype chat where we discussed what I wanted (and didn't), the types of designs she could offer as well as the different albums that met our budgetary and artistic needs.

Then the design of the album began. The website she uses for corrections and comments is great because you can leave all the comments you want at any time and she can change things on her end. It's really simple and easy to use and you can do it on your own time (despite the time difference if there is one). And you make as many changes as you want and Jane tries her best to make the page to your liking. Even if you want to change it 13 times. That kind of devotion to her clients is what really stands out. She wants you to be happy with the result and she'll try her best to make it yours as you like it. The process took a few weeks but Jane encourages you to take your time to make sure you get what you want. No pressure at all from her end.

When we got the album, we were excited. The story and the pages are really so much better than what I would have come up with myself. And I didn't have to spend an arm and a leg to get a great album. And the suggestions she made for the actual physical album were great. She knows her products and can adapt them to the needs of her clients.

I thank Jane for allowing us to finally enjoy our wedding pictures as they should be. Thank you so very much! I highly recommend her services. You cannot go wrong.

The technology exists for anyone to upload pictures and create a book consisting of those photos. Jane adds so much more value to this process. She culled through our wedding photos from a variety of sources to really capture the spirit of the day. The album went far beyond simply documenting what happened and included lovely, creative arrangements to set the mood. Our entire family was very impressed by the albums they received, and they have very different artistic tastes. Jane also did a great job of helping us sort out exactly what we wanted. If you come in with very specific preferences, she can work with you as well. I highly recommend working with A La Carte Albums for a great experience and fantastic album without breaking your budget.
