Photo Guest Book- Close Ups!

I ordered my photo guest book from Shutterfly and it arrived last week. I was very impressed with the promptness of shipping, from the day I clicked the "order" button to the day it arrived in my mailbox was only about two weeks. The quality is amazing, it looks like a professionally made book, which is exactly what I was going for. I am so impressed with it, that I plan on making a larger photobook of our wedding pictures after the wedding. I ordered an 8x8 hardcover photobook with 20 pages. Tom and I registered at Target, and one of the perks of doing so was a $20 gift card to Shutterfly. So, with shipping I paid less than $15.

The inside cover and cover pages on the front and back are solid white, which leaves tons of space for guests to sign, in addition, I left plenty of white space between pictures to all guests to sign there as well. This is the cover page, which says "Please Sign Our Guest Book And leave your best wishes for the new Mr. and Mrs.!"

This is one of my favorite pages, I love the full page picture

This is another favorite page, the picture of the ocean came out so crisp it just looks awesome. You can also see all the white space for guests to sign

On each page, I added a quote in our signature purple. 

For the back cover, I made a collage. 
As I have said before, I absolutely love my photo guest book. I like that it has our engagement pictures in it and is more like a coffee table book than your traditional guest book. It is something that I can see us displaying, at least for our first year of marriage, out in the open rather than just tucking it away in a drawer or a curio cabinet. I look forward to seeing it with all my guests signatures and well wishes, it is sure to become a keepsake that we will cherish for years to come.


  1. This is such a gerat idea! I already made a guest book, but the pages have lines that I think will be more apporpriate for signatures. I might go with this for a second guestbook that people can actually write notes to us in.

  2. I went over my parents house today and sitting on the table for me was a $20 gift certificate to Shutterfly that apparently we got from David's Bridal when my mom picked up my preservation kit! I think I'm going to do this in addition to the signature book I made. Now I have to return a scrapbook I bought yesterday at Michaels!

  3. Awesome! Shutterfly is really straight forward, but if you need any help, just let me know!
