emilie inc. partners with Queensberry for wedding albums

by

J and I were married three years ago. Perhaps like many of you, we still don't have a wedding album. I'm not entirely sure why, but I haven't yet felt inspired to really want one, to need one, to invest in one.

Until now.

I think the earth may have moved under my feet when I recently unwrapped several of our newest Queensberry albums for our studio. I literally gasped. On every page. Several times. I lingered over the craftsmanship, the precision of each thick handcut mat and perfectly exposed prints. The surprise of a gate fold or the sweet vellum title page. Ohhhhhh my!

Immediately in love with our new meeting room additions, I finally understood what album companies have been selling for years and why they had been falling short- in my opinion, of course. Browsing these, our new lovelies, was an experience. Capturing the timeless elegance and attention to detail our studio strives to document at every moment during a wedding, these books reflect the same work ethic and offer a complementary presentation to what it was like to be there. It's an extension of our art, a stunning showcase, a perfect marriage. I'm not being dramatic- it takes a lot to impress me.

Hook, line and sinker, folks, I must have one of these of my own. I need one.

Here's why...

The obvious: People say it all the time, I know, but after the flowers wilt and the cake is cleared, photographs are what help families remember. Years from now you won't remember what blooms were in your bouquet or what flavor your tiered dessert was, but your images will.

Why it matters: A few weeks ago I shared with you the story of my stepgrandparents' passing and the comfort I found in browsing their wedding album. I loved hearing how my aunt Missy was the one who was entrusted to care for the book, wondering which one of our children might clamor for my own (soon to be ordered!) album one day. I love looking through my parents' wedding images, remarking on the poses and the fashion, the colors and the style. Don't you? So interesting! When I was little I was the flower girl in my aunt Susie's wedding. My family loves to tell the story that I pouted all day long because the lace around my sleeves was itchy. There are pictures aplenty with my prized scowl. Classic. Will is going to be a ring bearer in my uncle's wedding this summer. I wonder what pictures we'll be sharing with him from that day for the rest of his life?

The process: Photography is as important to you as it is to us, therefore it is our responsibility to take very good care of you, sharing our expertise both before, during and after your wedding. We're the only local wedding photography studio that has a post production manager (who tends to each and every image after I have edited your wedding) and a graphic designer on staff. Our designer walks you through every step of the album process, helping you choose images and collaborating on a custom layout which I oversee and sign off on with you. We aren't merely dropping images into a template, we are working with your photographs to tell the story of your wedding day with the most perfect balance and flow, carefully weaving together image position, size, and style. We are attention to detail professionals with a capital p.

The best and nothing less: You could have hired anyone to photograph your wedding, but you chose us. You didn't want average, you wanted the best. Should you have anything less to preserve your wedding day images? This book has shifted our thinking so drastically that moving forward Queensberry is the only professional album company we are partnering with. It's truly that awesome. Symbiotic with our brand and the emilie inc experience, it just makes sense. Please come by and see one for yourself. We'll guarantee you'll understand why we're so giddy and why you'd be so proud to showcase your gorgeous wedding in one, too.

A mid-size square is our favorite. Not too big, not too small. Coffee mug not for coffee, but just for scale here.
Clean, crisp edges.
Luxe leather cover treatment.
Vellum title page, available in several styles.
A simple design...
.... hinges to reveal this beautiful layout of portraits.
Our biggest crush on this particular style is the combination of both traditional matted images (right) and flush mounted images (dress, left, that bleeds to the edge of the page). Blends the best of both worlds in what Queensberry calls their Duo book.
The ivory mat and blind liner supports the photography, it doesn't detract from it. 

 

A closer look at the precision cut page mat. Anyone else goo-goo for gorgeous paper like we do?
A book that features a healthy balance of simple and complex designs like this help keep the flow of the book moving, mimicking the wedding day and keeping a viewer's interest. No boring or predictable album templates here!  
So there you have it! Are you in love, too?
