I would say lets wait until March 2017 to book his bar-mitzvah. As of now, I have no 2018 bookings so there's no rush. I've already turned down a few 2018 jobs because I haven't figured out my pricing yet.
I reviewed your contract and this is what it says: 20 page album, hard cover 8x10, that combines all 3 events, super thick pages, luster paper for vibrant photos and storage box. Or 40 pages but thinner page thickness. ($450 credit)
I started carrying much cooler and fancier albums, check out the "Premium Flush Mount" album option attached. But I can still do that album that I showed you which is called "Standard Flush Mount" and fits into the $450 credit. I did an option for 15 spreads which comes to 30 pages, this basically includes almost all of the images you selected. Let me know if this feels too crowded, anything feels like its missing, or you want to cut down the amount of pages, etc. - Did you have a cover in mind like linen, photo, leather? Do you want to see some options? - Do you want me to add extra pages with text before each event like "Family photoshoot" "The Ceremony" "The party" and the dates for each? I usually don't add that because its extra pages, but I think it might look cute.
FYI, flush mount just means the pages lay completely flat. I always get this question.
