Photo book recommendations?

We took hundreds and hundreds (ok, thousands) of photos on our honeymoon in California. We're photo nuts anyway, but we also had a brand spankin' new camera to play with (plus two old ones that we used on the trip). That was two months ago and we haven't done much of anything with the photos-- hardly anyone has even seen them. We uploaded a couple, but it was a busy fall and we never did much more. I'd like to do a photo book before the holidays, so I need to get moving.

I made a photo book of our engagement photos using Shutterfly because we had a coupon and it was a good deal. The interface was ok and the quality was fine, but it wasn't customizable enough for me and I don't plan to use it again. I've heard rave reviews of Blurb books, but I'm wondering if there are any other companies I should look at. I'm not looking to spend a ton of money, but I want good quality and an easy but highly customizable layout process.

Suggestions?

Hi Nicole. Thanks for checking out my blog! It just so turns out that I got married this year as well! I did a photo book of our wedding as a thank you for our parents using MyPublisher - http://www.mypublisher.com.

It was very easy to put together and I was very, very happy with the results (as were our parents). The print quality is terrific, and I added the bookcover jacket, which makes it really special, I think. Plus - they often have really good deals - like buy 1, get 1 free.

Congrats on your wedding & good luck with your photobook!
