I understand that having high-resolution digital images are important to clients and I agree which is why I supply all the high-res digital images on USB.
That being said, where will that USB be in 5 or 10 years time? As technology changes so does your ability to store and access your images.
I’m a big believer that photographs should be printed and displayed in areas you spend a lot of time so you can reminisce each time you see those images. Instead of them being stored on a computer’s hard drive, your wedding images should be presented beautifully in an album. Not just any album but an album of the highest quality handmade with the finest materials which will become an heirloom.
Imagine sitting there on your 25th Wedding Anniversary, turning the pages of your wedding album revisiting your wedding day, those moments caught in time captured forever telling your story. You will own something very special to share with members of your family, for generations to come.
As the old saying goes, the dress gets put in the cupboard, the cake gets eaten and the flowers die. Your wedding images are the only thing you’ll have to remember your wedding day.
I exclusively use Queensberry Albums and below is some more information about the different types of albums and options. Please feel free to visit me in my studio where I can show you some sample albums in person.
Example Album Layout
Bold and contemporary.
Panorama Flushmount Albums offer maximum choice and designability. Medium or heavyweight un-matted pages, inkjet or silver halide printing.
Classic Matted Album
Traditional and elegant.
The Classic Matted Album is the quintessential photographic album packed with timeless sophistication. Pagemount style mats (ie with the photos trimmed to fit inside the card mat, exposing the core page) allows you to choose from several base page colours. Pages are supplied with protective edging and corners in black, white or silver.
Dynamic and distinctive.
Duo albums are a fusion of matted and flushmount pages, creating a uniquely modern presentation album. Pages are clean-edged. Images are generally mounted in Queensberry’s unique pagemount style.
Musée albums are created with the best materials and the highest level of craftsmanship. 100% cotton pages, European leather, personal embossing. Musée’s fine leathers and vintage ribbon closures are of European origin.
The distinctive wrap-around covers are a combination of embossed and plain vegetable tanned leathers in black or dark tan. French ribbon closures ornament the cover.
