So, you're stuck on your photo book title? Whether it's a step you choose to start with or something you save for last, your album cover sets the tone for all the pages that follow. And since we know we can each use a little wordsmithing inspiration now and again, we've compiled lists of photo album title ideas, arranged by book theme, to serve as thought-starters for your creation.


Travel

Photo books about travel are some of our favorites to name. The places you go can so easily supply you with inspiration, from incorporating a phrase in the local language (think: "Aloha") to simply calling a spade a spade by naming it after the city. The cover title can go a long way to prime your reader for the adventure that lies inside.

Thought-starter: What made this trip unique? Was it the modes of transportation, your first time with a passport, the lack of a solid plan? Think through what made it most memorable to encapsulate that quality in a few words.

Family

We see these albums ranging from annual recaps of immediate family members to heirloom-style archives with extended relatives. An easy and common route for photo book title ideas involves any variation of your family's last name and the year(s) pictured within. But for a more expressive cover, we recommend going a step further to convey the binding connection that your book represents!

Thought-starter: What relationships are featured throughout your book? Does it cover a broad span of time (e.g., a generation, a decade) or does it hold smaller, everyday moments that defined a single season? Family albums might be among the ones pulled out and paged through the most, so choose a title that reflects that same timelessness.

Wedding

Your wedding album is one that'll bring joy (and maybe a tear to your eye!) for decades to come. There are so many defining qualities of a relationship and all that goes into a wedding that it can be hard to summarize it in just a few words. That's why we tend to lean toward traditional, enduring phrases that signify the start of something equal parts strong and sentimental.

Anniversary

Anniversary photo albums are a timepiece through which we can admire all that a couple has endured, created, and explored together. It could be after one year of marriage, or maybe 50, but what these all have in common is a retrospective and appreciative lens to view their experiences. That's why we suggest a title evoking reflection and a special connection.

Thought-starter: What type of photos will compose this book — a wide-ranging chronological timeline or a recap of recent years? One simple way to give the album a personalized feel with an all-encompassing title is to include the number of years celebrated together.

Year-in-Review and Beyond

We might be biased, but photo books are the easiest and most tangible way to recollect a period of time and experiences shared. Whether it's on an annual basis or whenever-you-can basis, your titles can be both descriptive and even serial in nature.
