TINA JAY PHOTOGRAPHY

This week we have a post from TINA JAY PHOTOGRAPHY. Tina is a girl who used to sit in a cubicle as a CPA at a public accounting firm, but now has her dream job: documenting weddings and working with amazing couples. She’s featuring 2 of our albums in this post and gives all the details below. Enjoy!

Isn’t it SO FUN getting new studio sample albums? Maybe it’s just me, but I love it:) It was high time for a new set of sample albums, and I was so excited to order them from my new album company, Madera. I had heard aboutMadera through another photographer who raved about the quality, so I knew I had to try them out. I was BLOWN away, so I’m going to order exclusively through this company….the quality is top notch. Here are the two samples I now have:

This is a 10×10 album, with the Navy, top grain leather cover:

I had the couples’ names imprinted on the front, and their wedding date imprinted on the spine:

All of the albums I provide are flush mount albums, I love the lay-flat look when you open them up:

One of the best parts of Madera? The split down the middle of the spread – it’s the smallest split I’ve ever seen! I absolutely love that about these albums:

Another view of the ultra-thin split:

Each page is nice and thick:

Another thing I love? The paper quality. These pages just feel different than any other company I used, I am in love with the quality. Here are a few examples of spreads I’ve designed, I like to design very clean layouts:

The second sample album I ordered is a 12×12 flush mount album, with a linen cover, in the smoke color:

I love that you’re able to imprint on this linen material:

This material is one of my faves:

A few more examples of spreads I’ve designed:

A little size comparison – the navy album is a 10×10, and the gray album is a 12×12:

Thank you Tina for letting us share your post!

TAMI MELISSA PHOTOGRAPHY

Today we have a post by TAMI MELISSA PHOTOGRAPHY. Tami Melissa Photography is a husband (Ryan) and wife team based in New Jersey and are wedding and lifestyle photographers who are inspired by love . This post features the following books: 8×10 in brown lamb, 8×8 in top grain navy, 11×14 in top grain navy and an 8×8 portrait book. Enjoy!

 

When I came across Madera Books, I didnt have to look any further!  The company was brand new, created by a fellow wedding photographer – Michael Norwood! (Ryan and I even had the pleasure to personally work with him – he second shot our wedding!). He was able to create one of the most beautiful albums any wedding photographer could ask for!  Check them out for yourself!Here is our 8×8, 8×10 and 11×14 stacked together!  The 11×14 seems to be our most popular!
The opening spread!
Love that they are lay-flat albums!
All of our lovelies come with a photo of your choosing on the front!
You even have the option of imprinting on the cover or spine!
 
I have a discrete black logo on the back of the front cover :)  Nothing too showy!
 
I absolutely love the Portrait Books!  We use these for engagement albums and guest books! The entire front cover is personalized with an image from your engagement!
 
The pages may be thinner than the leather albums, but just as beautiful!
 
thank you for sharing your post and pictures!!

KRIS RAE PHOTOGRAPHY

This week we have a post with amazing images from KRIS RAE PHOTOGRAPHY.  Kris is a New England based photographer who loves to tell stories, and capture beautiful images, no matter where that takes him. Enjoy!

This one has been a long-time coming.  You might know by now that Lauren Ann+Pete were/are our first couple to sign-up and contract us to shoot their wedding.  If only for this they would share a special place in our hearts. But, they’ve become so much more to us than just our first clients.  We count them among our absolute best friends here in Connecticut.  And, if ever there was a cheerleader for our talent, Lauren Ann is the queen-bee.  She has referred not one, but four of her friends to us in the last 2 years.  Simply amazing. We’re so grateful that not only does she speak so highly of us, but that all of her friends have chosen to put their trust in us as well.  We’re truly humbled.

We’re so happy that we were finally able to deliver their dream book to them.  Knowing Lauren Ann, Pete, and their entire clan like we do, we know that this book is going to be loved and appreciated for generations.  And, that, is exactly why we do what we do.

Thank you so much LA+Pete!  We love you guys!
