Case Study: Lucy's Wedding Photobook

Lucy wanted a luxury photobook to reminisce her big day!  


When Lucy came to us, she wanted a stunning photobook so she can relive the memories of her magical wedding. As she got married only earlier last summer, she wanted a professionally designed photobook to capture all the professional photographs from her big day. Not only that, she wanted to give her family copies so they too can view the memories over and over again.

Lucy's Process

QUOTE: Lucy fills out our quick questionnaire, so we receive a simple initial understanding of her project and receive a preliminary quote by one of our expert designers.

QUOTE REVIEW: One of our designers issues a quote for $543 to Lucy that she promptly accepts and we begin the process of reviewing her photo submissions. Lucy is then able to pay a $99 deposit that goes towards the cost of her book.

PHOTO SUBMISSIONS: Lucy shares her photos via a Google Drive so our team is able to review and begin the preliminary process of designing her photos.

PHOTO REVIEW: When sharing her photos, Lucy culled her photos down to 350 and left the choice to Luminta’s designers to further cull her choices while proposing we retain as much as possible. Due to the volume of photos from various sources, both professional and personal photos from friends and family, our designers needed additional time to sort and cull the photos that were provided. Following the sorting process, we are able to keep 60% of Lucy’s best submitted photos.

PHOTO OPTIMIZATION: As part of the design process, our expert optimizes all photos for print. This involves brightening, color correction, cropping, straightening and more. Because most of Lucy’s pictures were captured by a professional photographer, they did not need much editing work which allowed Lucy to save time and costs here.

FIRST DRAFT & REVIEW: Following optimization, our designer professionally laid out Lucy’s photos into a photobook that compliments her photobook story. Because Lucy had nearly 200 photos, the team was able to showcase larger and less photos per page totalling to about 70 pages. Upon completion, our designer then sent a virtual copy of the photobook for Lucy’s review/feedback/approval. Luminta makes any changes that Lucy’s requests within 2 free rounds of review and changes. This is also where she can provide instructions to include text.

FIRST DRAFT FEEDBACK & ADDITIONS: Upon review of Luminta’s first draft, Lucy decided she wanted to include more photos and captions within her photobook. This is not a problem! With new requested photo and caption additions, Luminta’s designers will need additional time tor review, cull and edit. The additional time of one hour is proposed to be added to Luminta’s final invoice and approved!

SECOND ROUND REVISION: Following the addition of new photos and captions, Luminta’s designers are creating a brand new first draft for Lucy’s review. Lucy promptly provides constructive feedback for our designers to implement and we are close to the final product!

ADDITIONAL REVISION + SEND TO PRINT: After Lucy’s feedback is implemented, our designers provide an updated draft for a final review. Due to the addition of this feedback round, the extra revision time will be added to Lucy’s final invoice. With her final stamp of approval, the photobook is sent off to print!

PRINT REVIEW: Once the photobook has been printed, our experts check the photobook for quality once it's received back from the printer to ensure that it meets our premium standards.

PACKAGE & ENJOY!: Once approved, we elegantly package Lucy’s photobook and it's off to deliver to her via FedEX or USPS! Lucy can now reminisce on her big day for years and years to come.


"I couldn't have picked a better company to help me comemorate my big day in a photobook. Luminta's experts were extremely kind, communicative throughout the process and helped to design the perfect photobook that I can revisit for years to come."
