Not only is it wedding season these days, it's wedding album season as well. The time of year where I work my butt off to deliver all of my 2009 client wedding albums before I become totally immersed in the 2010 wedding season. So there seem to be albums arriving practically every week. I figured why not share them here. Today's is another Queensberry Album, this time a slightly more traditional matted book with a sleek, black leather cover. This one is for Alexandra & Jim, you might remember their beautiful, elegant wedding at The National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington DC last September. I think it's so important that each album be a unique representation of that couple and their special day together. For this reason, we don't use any templates or standard designs or covers.

I had a brand new client album come in last week and I just had to take a moment to share a few images. This one is a Queensberry Duo Album which I did for Kristan and Steve.

Most of my albums are designed from a favorites folder on Pictage selected by the bride and groom themselves. I'll give input where necessary but to me the most important thing is that my clients LOVE their album and adore every image that goes into it. So today, here a the wedding album I just finished for a really great couple named Liz & Chris, shot back in August at Keswick Hall in Charlottesville, VA. Enjoy!

Here is another one I just finished. Shelby and Anna (from the previously blogged album) are pals which always makes things fun. Shelby and Brad are a wonderful and adorable couple who were married at the famous Willard Hotel in Washington DC on July 5th, 2008. My amazing associate Jenni Green shot this with me.
