This was a really wonderful wedding album to create for the newlyweds - Donny and Patti. They got married on beautiful Miahaulepu Beach on Kauai, Hawaii. Our job was made easy because of the amazing photography taken by Ken Posney.

We designed this album on Patti's idea of telling a "fairy tale" story. So many of the pages have beautifully scripted pieces of her story, including the happy ending. Congratulations to Patti and Donny.

This is a really sweet book we did for a young couple celebrating one year together. This was a collection of images taken over the year they've been dating. Lindsay asked us to put together some of the most memorable events and she plans to surprise Jonathan with the book when it arrives.

What a wonderful gift to give to your loved one!

60 Great Times is a book we designed for a client who wanted to create a special gift for his sister on her 60th birthday. The book is a collection of 60 memorable moments in their lives, ranging from their childhood through their adult life.

We hope she enjoys this special gift from her brother. To see the inside of this book we designed, click here.

One of our dear clients, Natalie and Barry, contacted us recently to see if we would design another wedding book for them to give to their parents. We designed their original wedding album book back in March, 2009. This time, Natalie wanted to create a smaller version of the book. Actually, what they wanted is to select most of the portrait wedding shots and some special images that were important to the parents.

This small book was 50 pages compared to the larger wedding album we created, which was 95 pages. We hope her parents will be very happy with their customized wedding album.

This book design project was to celebrate a 60th birthday for a gentleman named Joe. His friends contacted us to "recreate" his high school year book, but with a twist. Each of his friends contributed THEIR high school photos to be put in the book, and then we added their bios, clubs, activities and achievements. This was all done with "tongue-in-cheek" humor and we think he'll be surprised and entertained by it.

We hope the book will be enjoyed by Joe and his friends and that he has a wonderful birthday.

It's hard to believe, but it's June already! How did that happen? If you're thinking about entering a book for Photography Book Now (PBN), it's time to get started!

So far, they've received more than 440 submissions from over 23 countries. Picturia Press has worked with three clients this year to help them design books for this event. Check out the latest entries at the PBN bookstore.

The deadline for PBN | 2010 is July 15, so you still have time. Remember, there's a $25,000 grand prize up for grabs, not to mention lots of other prizes and great exposure for your work!
