Madera Books


This week’s post is by GREEN COUCH PHOTOGRAPHY.  Zac and Chris are the masterminds behind GREEN COUCH PHOTOGRAPHY and though they are located in Dayton, OH they are always willing to travel. They are featuring our 10×10 in top grain black leather.  Hope you enjoy their post!

One of the stances that we take as photographers is that we are only going to offer the best product possible. When we began, we were offering an optional “wedding book” to our brides. Yes, for the time being it did the trick. Though as our photography improved, so did our process (as well as our end product).

What we found was that the wedding books were not matching the quality of photography we were delivering. We needed something that we could place our images in and appear to belong. That is when we found Madera Books. Once we got to see our high quality photography in a high quality album, we knew we made the right choice. In this sequence of photos we will highlight the wedding album that we include in our top-tier wedding package.*

This first image may appear to be the album cover; however Madera went a bit further to preserve the quality of their product. They created an outer “shell” that essentially protects the album from dust and the elements while not being admired.

Closed Album Case

Made entirely of genuine leather and hand crafted by master artisans, this is what our brides experience when they first receive their wedding album. This is just the start of the album experience.

Closed Album Case

When they get to interact with their album, our brides notice the strong magnet sealing the case. They open it and are introduced to their wedding album for the first time. This is typically when we hear the gasp, squeal or any other sound that an overly excited bride may produce.

This might be the time to mention the high quality of these pages. They are not your typical photographic paper. Your images are printed directly on thick, durable, pages that will stand the test of time. Believe us when we say that your great, great grandchildren will be able to enjoy the images in this album just as you did.

Our brides chose Green Couch Photography based on our experience, creativity, and philosophy on customer service. We chose Madera Books on the same criteria. They hand-craft these albums from start to finish, making each and every album one-of-a-kind.

  •  8″ x 8″
