Honeymoon Photo Book

Full Disclosure:  Foodbuzz gave me a code for a free book in exchange for this post, but the opinions are completely my own.

The husband and I got married in December 2009.  It was cold, wintery, and beautiful. December is also the prime shopping season….so maybe this wasn’t the best plan, since I work in retail.  I’m not sure that I would do it again, but even though it was rather hectic at times it all worked out in the end.  Since that is a busy time at work for me, and there was really no way I could take another 10 days off of work after the wedding, we decided to put our honeymoon on hold until the next year.  So we scheduled it for December 1-10 2010.  (Yes, I realize that is still definitely during prime shopping season….I just really like that time of year I guess.)

We took a 10 day trip down to Orlando and visited Disney World and Universal Studios.  It was such a whirlwind, but SO much fun!

When Foodbuzz offered me a chance for a free photo book through Kodak Gallery and the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program, I jumped at the chance.  I took TONS of photos on this trip, and have NONE of them printed out. Even though it is almost a year later.  Its about time that I get some of them printed out.

I was given a code for a free Medium hard cover photo book with 20 pages.  I have SO many photos, I just couldn’t edit down to 20 pages.  I ended up with around 25 pages, which cost me about $9 extra, but it was worth it to have the photos that I really wanted! The book I chose, with all of the pages would normally be about $50….but it is basically a hard cover scrapbook so that isn’t such a bad price.

I had not used the Kodak online gallery as a way of printing photos before, but it was pretty self explanatory and easy to use.  You can do almost everything by drag and dropping photos onto pages, and a few clicks to change the format.  You can even import photos directly from Facebook! Kodak has many preset page formats, but you can get even more creative and make your own as well.

Here is what the finished product looked like:

Kodak Book

The only thing I wish I would have done was add more pages, because at that size it does feel a little thin with only 25 pages.  Other than that it was a painless process and a nice keepsake for a finished product!  I would definitely use the Kodak Gallery in the future.

It’s even cat approved 😉

Some housekeeping notes:

  • I’m now self-hosted!  The only thing that this means for you is that if you normally read using a feed reader (like Google Reader) make sure your feed is updated to http://feeds.feedburner.com/browniesandzucchini/IhlD
  • I am in the middle (hopefully towards the end) of putting the site back together after I switched over.  PLEASE let me know if you have any issues with anything and I will do my best to fix it.  These things don’t always go smoothly, but so far so good!
