Today we have a post from SHAINA DECIRYAN PHOTOGRAPHY, which includes a fun little video. Shaina believes life is about sharing wonderful experiences with the ones you love. She is a lifestyle wedding & portrait photographer based out of Sanford & Rockledge, Florida, the Sunshine state! Enjoy!
I am a photographer, but more importantly- I am a storyteller. So naturally, one of my favorite things in the world is delivering my clients a book of their very own story. A book they can snuggle up on the couch with on a rainy day and share on their coffee table with their loved ones. A book that will gracefully outlive and outshine digital screens and social media albums.
Each of these books are hand designed by myself with care, and handcrafted in the USA by Madera Books. Designing the albums is part of my craft as a photographer, designer and genuine booklover*.
When I first set eyes on a Madera album I knew my album search was over. Tastefully and artfully crafted- I am incredibly proud to introduce them to my 2015 lifestyle wedding collections. Using a luxurious flushmount print technique your wedding images can go right to the edge of the page. The library bound layflat structure of the books turns two pages into one nearly seemless photograph, which for this 12×12″ Linen Album turns one of my full frame photos into an elegant 12×24″ print.
With my print production and design background I have a keen eye for color and print acuity, and I am very happy with how faithfully and crisply they reproduced digital pixels onto their pages. And about the pages-ooh la la! Each one is double lined with a handsome cardstock, which aside from giving the book a respectable heft, also makes the pages extra fun to turn and a lot safer around little hands than the thin book pages most albums offer. I’m kind of in love with my Artisan Albums, can’t you tell?
The question is, whose colorful wedding will be bold enough for a yellow leather album this year?
12×12 Linen Madera Album Video Review
I’ve included a video, and some fun detail shots of the embossed cover, lover suede storage case it arrives in, some of the page spreads I designed for Abram & Alexa’s wedding over in sunny Tampa, Florida and the lovely little silver foil logo they stamped on the last page for me. My very own maker’s mark. Every single bride who’s seen the album this year so far is in love, and I have a feeling I’ll get the chance to make some more wonderful albums this year.

This week we have a post by Mr + Mrs Drew Photography. Andrew and Amanda are the couple behind Mr + Mrs Drew Photography. They shoot weddings all over New England and have a fun, modern style. Enjoy!
We wanted to share the most recent wedding album we’ve delivered as well as share the news of the new album company we have started using. Your wedding images belong in an album! It’s just a fact, they weren’t meant to live on your usb drive or on facebook. They are meant to be enjoyed and treasured and the best way to do that is with a wedding album. There are many options for albums and it can be overwhelming to decide but we’ve made that process easier by finding this amazing company for you. We love Madera books and wish we started using them sooner.
I could go on and on about the album, but honestly the images of the album do all the talking for me.
This album is a 10×10 leather album in Khaki leather and comes in a stunning presentation box.
I can’t stress it enough, don’t skimp on your album!! It’s something you’ll have for years to come and will share with your children and grandchildren. Your images are meant to be viewed as prints and an album is the best way to tell the story of your wedding day!
Thank you Andrew and Amanda for sharing your post with us!

This week we have a post by VICTORIA LOUISE PHOTOGRAPHY. Victoria is addicted to capturing fleeting moments with a romantic, dreamy feel. She loves rugged ocean cliffs and foggy days and is a HUGE stand-up comedy fangirl. Enjoy her post!
The tactile experience of handling photos is extremely important to me. Ever since I was a kid, one of my favorite things to do was to sit go through all of our family albums for hours, especially my parents’ wedding album.
Therefore, providing my clients with a beautiful, special experience with their photos is crucial for me. I searched high and low to find the very best professional album creators out there. I offer premium leather, handcrafted and handmade albums produced in America. The look and feel of these albums is unparalled (and honestly quite unbelievable).
Take a peek at Christiana + Chris’s new wedding album! They chose a 30-spread, 10×10 black calf leather album with folded pages. All albums come in a black leather case.
Thank you Victoria for sharing your wonder book!

Today we have a post by BULLOSS PHOTOGRAPHY. Bulloss Photography is a husband and wife team made up of Jess and Will and they are based out of the New River Valley in Virginia, but are willing to travel. They are featuring our 8×8 book in the light brown calf. Enjoy!
Katie and Alex’s album arrived on our door step this weekend and brought with it so much joy. If we haven’t said it before, we LOVE seeing our images displayed in such an elegant way. Being able to have printed images is so important, but what really makes it worth it for us to offer these hand crafted, leather bound albums is that they are not just images but heirlooms. We picture our couples getting to share the album with family, friends, and future generations for their entire lives. There really is no better way to tell the story of the wedding day.
This year we started working with Align Album Design and Madera Albums and they have both been absolutely wonderful to work with! I have been impressed over and over again by their wonderful customer service and STUNNING product! Thank you to both of these companies for their amazing talent.
Please enjoy a little peek inside Kaite and Alex’s wedding album!
Thank you Jess and Will for sharing your post with us!
