When Kimberly asked me if I was available to capture their barn wedding, I was over the moon.  Seriously, my dream wedding….you know, if I ever renewed my vows.  The more she explained the vision of their wedding the more smitten I was.  Take a peek at some of my favorite images from the day!

I’ve search high and low over the last few years for an album company that provides an album that’s quality is just as luxurious as all the rest of my products. I’m delighted to say that I finally found it! I’d love to introduce you to the new luxe heirloom albums. They are absolutely stunning. The weight of them makes you just melt.

Let’s start off with the outside and work our way in. The covers are hand-crafted in the US with premium Italian grade leather. Seriously, it feels like butter! I’ve chosen to offer black leather as it’s extremely timeless. It also creates a sense of wonder; making you interested to see what’s inside! Once you take a peek inside, you’ll be amazed at the thickness of the paper. Well, paper is really a poor description, as it’s really more of a super thick card stock – boasting 1/16″ thick. When you lay the album down on a table, the flush-mount design allows you to view both pages. This means that one image spread across both page will not have any noticeable creases or gutters. All you see is a gorgeous image.

What’s great about these albums is that they are heirloom quality, meaning that it’s constructed with durability in mind. These albums are a fantastic way to showcase your family each year. Many of my yearly portrait clients choose these albums so that they can look back years from now and see how their little family grew.

These are also the albums I provide to my wedding clients. They hold them in their hands and are so relieved that we offer these gorgeous albums to display their stunning wedding images. Again, because they are designed to withstand the test of time, my wedding clients are thrilled that they will be able to show their children and grandchildren the wonderful memories they made on the day they became a family.

Without further adieu, enjoy the new luxe heirloom albums.
