Queensberry Albums - Q stands for Quality

Have you ever treasured something you own that carries more weight than sentimental value? A keepsake, or a piece family heirloom passed down. A piece of treasure you handle with love and care, but can't wait to share with those you love. Your Wedding Album should all of this and more. It's the story of your emotions, your passion, your life. It's your story.

Experiencing a Queensberry album is like opening a new present every time. Protected by it's velvety soft cover, you'll enjoy sharing it with your family, friends and your spouse. Designed by experts and built from the best materials available - the quality is simply unparalleled. There isn't a better album company than this.

Based in New Zealand, Queensberry has been hand crafting gorgeous albums for over 40 years. They have commissioned albums for royalty, celebrities, and those who love style. Apart from the outstanding quality in workmanship and materials, what drew me to this company, was the ability to customize albums to match my clients needs. With the virtually limitless dazzling color and material options, cover motif choices, and page styles - each album is custom tailored to be 100% unique.

People spend tens of thousands on their weddings, but sometimes neglect to take the time and effort to preserve the memories of one of the most important days in their lives. It's absolutely true that memories are timeless. Your wedding album will be passed down to future generations, and preserved as your family history.

Wedding Album

I wanted to share Tammy and Fernando's wedding album design. I have recently introduced a new line of albums to my lineup, but more on that later...

For now, I'm all about design and perfecting this new minimalistic style that gives your album a very clean, contemporary look with a dynamic elegance. Notice the occasional use of asymmetry and full-bleed images. This new look adds a new level of variety and energy to wedding albums. I'm now including this on my new top-tier albums for those who want the absolute best in quality and the latest style.

Enjoy! If you have trouble viewing the slideshow video, switch to Chrome or Firefox :)

Destination Wedding Photographer

Tamara and Fernando - Santiago, Chile

If you hop aboard a Boeing or Airbus and fly south for 8 hours and 15 minutes, you'll arrive in Santiago de Chile. Flanked by the snowcapped Andes mountains, the city of Santiago is picturesque with moderate climate, making it an ideal location for an outdoor wedding.

The ceremony took place in a naturally lit old church perched atop a small hill. The walls showed signs of cracking and damage from the earthquake that shook the city in February this yea r - a reminder of the fault line way down below.

I absolutely love outdoor weddings. Not only do you get beautiful naturally lit photos, but the sense of openness and constant fresh air create the perfect mood. You simply couldn't ask for more perfect conditions for this lucky couple's reception.

I've become a fan of the Chilean Cueca dance after watching it in action throughout the night. Among the entertainment were the locally famous Chilean folk band Los Huasos Quincheros, a pair of professional Cureca dancers, and a beautifully performed Michael Jackson - Billie Jean break-dance.

So if you're thinking about having a destination wedding abroad - I'd say go for it. You'll likely get an amazing value, a whole lot of culture, and if your destination is anything like the gorgeous landscape of El Pregon, you'll have the Andes mountains as your backdrop.

Enjoy the photos, and a special thanks to Tammy and Fernando for making this experience an especially memorable one. You guys are awesome!
