Pictage PartnerCon LA!

I look forward to this conference every year as a way to meet new people & stay connected with our clients who come from all over the country. I am also still doing photography of my own as well, so the presentations are invaluable. After these two days I am always so pumped to get home and work on my businesses.

I didn't bring a camera (ha!) but Kenny Kim did and here's the three of us hanging out. Thanks for the photo Kenny!

Kenny is the man. He's also very good at documenting events & just finished touring with DJ in the Freedom Bus. Check out his blog here.

Looking forward to next year!

Design Inspired by Fashion

At pink penny we love clean designs that showcase the beautiful imagery we get to work with each day. We're always looking for inspiration and often find it in the pages of our favorite fashion magazines. These are two layouts I'd like to try and translate into wedding book designs soon (minus all the text of course)

This could especially work with bridal portraits

And I like the positioning of the small vertical images on the left across from a full bleed on the right.

It's fun finding these bits of inspiration and the challenge to produce fresh but timeless design keeps us on our toes. Where do you find inspiration?

Album Samples Anyone?

We have had a few photographers want album designs for sample albums that either show off their best work or a sample of what an album will look like for a bride. It is a good way to show off those albums and possibly get some brides to purchase. This month, amongst all the designs we have had come in, I have had the pleasure to design samples for Kristen Beinke Photography, Michael + Anna Costa as well as Matt Hall Photography.

Kristen Beinke had us design a 10 x 10 Cypress Iris Album with some of her best wedding work. Click here to view the design.


The Costas had us design a 12 x 12 Kiss Album of a wedding to show as a sample to their brides what a Kiss album looks like. Click here to view the design.


Matt Hall needed a sample album for a tradeshow. He had us design a 10 x 10 Kiss album of a wedding to show his photography to potential brides. Click here to view the design.

Remember us when you want an album sample book for your business.

An Album

For those of you who might have never seen a Queensberry matted album that we do, here are a few pics to give you an idea. These books are beautiful and are very massive in size. They are art forms of the photographers work. We love them and the brides are very much in love with them as well!




This a 12"x12" book with a left and right foldout which when opened like this measures to be 48"across! That is 4' across!

We've been busy!

Sorry for the lack of posts!
We have been working hard to get albums to your brides before Christmas. Here are just few of the albums I have completed and now am awaiting their arrival.


Also we are now doing the album design for Kiss, which also keeps us busy. Here is a sample of what photographer, Melissa Brown, did for her sample book.
