ABBEY DOMOND PHOTOGRAPHY

Happy Monday! Today we are sharing a post by ABBEY DOMOND. It’s an older post, but a popular color for our linen books and Abbey’s photos are great so we figured why not show it to you. ABBEY is a Connecticut/New York wedding photographer who loves to capture your most important moments and tell your story. Red velvet cupcakes are her favorite, she loves diet coke and Scandal, and she’s featuring our 10×10 linen book in smoke.

As a photographer, my goal is all about capturing moments that tell the story of your day.  While my packages come with digital images, albums are a beautiful way to showcase your wedding images.  I know, in this age of instant access, digital is the preferred method of receiving images.  However, 10, 20, 30 years from now when you want to take your grandchildren through your wedding day, what will stand the test of time – an outdated disc of images or a beautifully designed album?

I’m soo excited to be using Madera Books for my clients’ wedding albums.  These flush mount albums are a gorgeous way to display your images. Each album features a lay flay design, thick archival pages, and the choice of a leather (faux or real) or linen cover. Each album holds up to 40 pages and comes packaged in a display box.   I received my newest sample album with the linen cover and was super impressed.    Here are a few pages from Sherena and Earnest’ wedding last summer.   Enjoy!!!

2016 HOLIDAY DEADLINE

Everyone knows that once October gets here, it’s the start of the holiday season (at least in my mind it is!). So to get you organized, here are the dates you’ll need to remember:

REGULAR DEADLINE: December 5th, 11:59PM PST

Orders must be placed by MONDAY NIGHT, DECEMBER 5th, at 11:59pm PST

Ordering the book by December 5th means that the book will be delivered to you or your client before Christmas and Hanukkah. DROP SHIPPING the book directly to your client is a great option during the holidays. No invoices or paperwork are included in the packaging.

RUSH DEADLINE – 30% ADDED: December 9th, 11:59PM PST

We’re also giving you the ability to order a book later and pay a RUSH fee.  If for some reason you can’t get the order in by December 5th you will have the option of paying a 30% rush fee which will give you an extra 4 days to get the book ordered in time for holiday delivery.  FRIDAY NIGHT, DECEMBER 9th, at 11:59PM PST, will be the RUSH deadline.
As always, in order to give our workers time with their families after an incredibly busy few months, we will be closing the factory down from December 24-January 4.  If you order any books after December 5th, without adding the rush option, please understand that these days will not be included in the typical 15 business day turnaround.

ALBUM DESIGN 

Feeling overwhelmed with so many albums to design this time of year?  Let us help! We offer album design! For just $79, $99, or $119 we’ll design up to 20, 30 or 40 spreads, upload to Album Exposure for proofing, and do 2 rounds of revisions!  Additional rounds of revisions are $25.

If you need an album designed in time for the album to be received in time for Christmas/Hannukah, then you need to place your design order by November 21st. This will allow time to receive the design from us, and get approval from your clients in time to order by the album ordering deadline. A rush option will be available after November 21st, please inquire.

As always, thanks for your support and if you have any questions, let us know.

MARITHA MAE PHOTOGRAPHY

Today’s post is an oldie by MARITHA MAE PHOTOGRAPHYMaritha is an LA based photographer who in her words is “making the beautiful come alive”. She specializes in global storytelling and appreciates working with people who appreciate simple, unrefined elegance. The featured book is our 12×12 in black calf leather.  

Just finally got my sample album for this year in the mail recently!  For all of you who have been wondering what they look like, I thought I’d do a little catwalk here of the type of albums I use. These state-of-the-art robust leather albums feel as soft as baby skin and have the smell of sheer bliss. All my studio albums are hand cut and bound state-of-the-art flush mount albums with pages printed on premium Kodak Endura paper using Noritsu and Durst professional large format printers. Each is backed with a 100% lifetime guarantee.

Flush mount albums differ from regular photo books in that they are hand mounted on thick inner board with real silver halide photo paper, thus giving the book many desirable characteristics. Though the process is expensive and labor intensive these books are meant to give my clients a crafted, quality feel with sturdy pages that can not bend. I love that the .8mm thick pages lay flat with an almost nonapparent gutter that seriously can’t be rivaled anywhere else. Each album price includes photo the spreads, printing, binding, top grain leather, UV protective coating and a black presentation box.

Have fun giving your eyes a feast and feel free to get in touch with me to order an album for your past or future wedding! All album layouts are custom designed by Maritha. :-)
