Handmade by the best in the industry

Gorgeous craftsmanship. Every album is made to order, made by hand in New Zealand by a lovely family-owned and family-operated business for nearly 50 years. I trust the quality of this premier company, Queensberry, and can stand by their albums having seen ones decades old.

They endure the test of time. They are a worthwhile investment that is meant to last generations as a family heirloom, meant to tell the story of your family legacy.

Much of our lives are spent viewing screens and as technology continues to change, still nothing beats holding a physical album in your hands. The photos from your wedding day are the most tangible artifact remaining -- of course, aside from being married!

There's nothing better than seeing them beautifully printed in a gorgeous album that you can touch and feel. No internet access needed. Cozied up on the couch with your love, you can linger on a page, skip ahead to the reception, or flip back to the moment you said "I do" -- the album lets you endlessly relive your wedding story.

Custom designed just for you

I have a seasoned in-house designer. She is amazing. We sit side by side in my office. Her creativity abounds with custom album design. Our combined professional experience and training for how to craft a visual story and what that means for your wedding, results in a provoking album steeped in emotion, poignancy, and a timeless quality. It is meant to move you not just at your 5 year wedding anniversary, but your 50th.

The design process is typically completed in about a month. There is a pre-design phase, three rounds of revisions completed on a weekly turnaround, and final approval. I use a convenient online, private proofing site that allows you to see what we have created, simply submit changes, and easily approve. The hardest part is just picking the photos!

Once the album is approved, production begins. All photos selected for the album are retouched to provide a fundamental, polished, professional, and, most importantly, a level of real refinement. Although subtly noticed, it makes a difference. This phase and the printing phase, combined, is about six to eight weeks, at which point your album will be hand-delivered by Whit, or shipped if meeting in-person isn't feasible.

Custom features

You get to select your cover material, feature, font, and title page to really make this album your own. It will most likely live on your coffee table, have a special spot in your family room, or have it's own shelf display on one of your bookcases, so it totally makes sense you want your album to look its best. You'll just smile and swoon every time you walk past it in your home.
