QUEENSBERRY CLASSIC MATTED + DUO WEDDING ALBUMS
For several decades, Queensberry has been crafting gorgeous wedding albums exclusively for professional wedding photographers and their discerning clientele. Wedding albums differ from books in that the photographic prints are mounted directly on solid base pages. A wedding album turns your unforgettable wedding moments into art, like photographs framed in a personal gallery. I personally design, curate, and deliver every album to ensure a worry-free experience.
Queensberry Duo albums feature a contemporary fusion of matted and flushmount pages. Queensberry Classic Matted albums feature pagemount style mats (with the photos trimmed to fit inside the card mat, exposing the core page material) and protective corner edging in black, white, or silver.
Premium materials, thick pages, chromogenic photo paper; Leather covers with embossed names (vegan covers available for substitution); Comes in a printed gift box + dust bag.
