Affordable, elegant gift idea

I saw an advertisement for this app through the Apple News app. I decided to give it a try and ordered a small soft cover photo book for my fiancé. We couldn’t believe how well the book came out. Using just my high resolution cell phone images, I will as able to make something that we both love.
The app is very intuitive and easy to use. There are numerous templates to use. We are already planning to use Motif for our wedding reception photos.

P.S. can’t wait for the calendar feature!
