Parting with money is always a tough decision but when it comes to money invested in memories that last a lifetime, it’s a no-brainer. So, if you’ve ever wanted to splash out on quality images that turn into a story book, look no further than a professional photographer. Our wedding photographer works with the stunning New Zealand based company Queensberry who create beautiful personalised hand crafted photo albums for professional photographers.
Jason and I knew the moment we saw a few examples of these amazing albums that we’d want one for ourselves once the wedding was over and what we received was more beautiful than we could have imagined (I’m hoping it won’t be our last). Forget pixelated and incorrect colour printed self made photo books (don’t get me wrong – I make plenty of these from holiday snaps) but for the quality of our wedding images, it’s only fair to invest in something that does them justice.
With a variety of paper type, layout and cover options you’ll be spoilt for choice and create something so personal to your images. Jason and I were guided through the selection process with Kathy in fine detail who ensured we got something completely bespoke to us. We opted for a photo finish and soft leather cover (incurring a little extra charge but totally worth it) with a dust sheet on the first page which was a lovely little touch to detail our names and wedding date. We didn’t want a glossy finish to our photo’s as that didn’t seem to suit the style of our images, therefore felt a textured option best complimented those memories. The pages are thick and sturdy, bound completely by hand (watch how here) adding to the effect and quality of the end product.
As you can imagine we are completely over the moon with our album and have showed it to everyone that’s stepped foot inside our home so far. It’s kept in a perfect ‘pick me up’ place and definitely not shut away to be forgotten about.
Go make memories!
