    I have been watching Gary Fong's DVD and he talks about selling the wedding album. I have not done that before, but am going to try it with an upcoming wedding.

    For those of you who do sell wedding albums, which vendor do you prefer? Fong recommends Pictage, but I have heard some negative things about Pictage.

    I'm looking for recommendations and I'm looking for someone that offers a feature where I can design the album, then show it to my clients on my laptop.

    Any help is appreciated!

    I wouldn't take everything that Gary Fong says, at face value. He's made a fortune by selling Tupperware to photographers, making them think it's the best thing since sliced bread.
    (Sorry, rant over)

    There are plenty of album manufacturers, everything from self mount albums to metallic paper.
    Here are a few sites to check out:

    Thanks for the reply. I know there are some who do not like Fong. However, when I am looking to make money, I listen to someone who has.

    Which one of those vendors do you like the best and what do you use to present a "draft" photo album to your clients?

    Thanks!

    Pictage is a good way to go if you have the money to pay their fees. One other album vendor I could recomment is Albums inc.. Fpr another photographer who recommends items You could also try David Ziser http://www.davidziser.com/index.asp . He does not have any "Tupperware" to sell but I really like the Lumapix software he sells for album layout it's a real user friendly album layout software package and you can check out a demo through his site.
