- Amy Ripley, Owner/Designer -

My name is Amy, the owner and designer of Shoebox Albums. I have been a graphic designer for 13 years. I started this company because I am passionate about designing high-end photo books to celebrate life's important events.  When I'm not designing albums, I'm spending time with my family, walking my dog, sewing, estate-sale shopping, wandering a craft store or let's be honest, you may find me binging some new series (or Friends...) on one of the 1,000s of streaming services out there. 

Our albums are designed in the US and the leatherette cover materials are 100% synthetic vinyl. It looks and smells just like genuine leather, but without the use of animal products.

Shoebox Albums is a custom wedding album design service based in Minneapolis, MN. Offering a personalized take on your mementos, I create a custom-made album that's printed just for you. As a thoughtful souvenir of your special day, this album is an ideal present anyone looking for an album with a personal touch. Shoebox Albums offers a straightforward service that lets you send your photos in a simple, straightforward manner. Uploading your photos and messages through their website, I will then work with you to create your ideal layout and design. Quotes, speeches, and messages are all welcomed, letting you make this album a complete memento of whatever event you are looking to preserve.
