From my first year as a wedding photographer, I drooled over the Queensberry Duo album. At the time, it didn’t fit within my branding or with the product I was offering so it didn’t make sense for me to invest in a sample or to try and sell it to my clients. Since then, my business has grown and become more of a boutique experience, offering your beautiful images on equally beautiful products. That being said, I have done away with offering albums that are similar to the ones my clients might make themselves. It’s your wedding. It is a once in a lifetime experience and should be treated as such.
So, along with the Leather Craftsmen and Graphistudio albums that I offer, here is the Queensberry Duo out of New Zealand. It is the most unique and luxurious of all the albums that I have found in the industry. From the moment it arrived on my doorstep, I was giddy in anticipation! I was not disappointed. The presentation of this album is stellar.

The beautifully printed ribbon of the velvet bag.
The Queensberry Duo in Blueberry contemporary leather with name imprinting, 10×7 album with 40 pages.
The pages are matted in ivory and are thick and have the texture of watercolor paper. Very weighty and feels amazing in the hand. This book is heavy!

The Duo is Queensberry’s signature album and its uniqueness lies in the way it is made and its wonderful features. It is a fusion of the modern Flushmount style albums and the classic matted albums that have always been popular. Not only does it combine these two styles but it goes a step further and offers customizations to your pages that you can’t find anywhere else (that I am aware of). You can add “wing” and “flip-out” pages to add drama and interest, as well as to incorporate more images.
Here is a matted page in ivory.
The left side is a Flushmount page and the right is a matted page.
Here is an example of a fly out page. The far right page is hinged to fold out into a full spread.
Here is an example of a closed “flip out” page. The images on the right are on the outside of the flip pages.
Here is that same page with the flip pages opened.
The last page. It’s been printed as a Flushmount but has a matted edge.
I was telling my husband when I saw this album that if I didn’t already have a wedding album, this would be the one I would want! Truly, it is unique and beautiful and everything about it screams fine art to me and that appeals to my artist side. I know it’s probably not the album for everyone, nor does it fit every budget, but if you truly love the unique and hard to find, this album is it for you.
I am offering this album included within my Diamond package as it is above, with your own customizations of colors and printing. There are other customizations, such as different cover types, inset photos and page styles available as well and I’d be happy to show you what they are. Other sizes are also available for an additional cost.
