Madera Books


Today we have a post from KATIE NESBITT PHOTOGRAPHY.  Katie is a Virginia wedding photographer that is obsessed with junk food, reality tv, weddings and DIY projects. She is also an editor and co founder of Marry & Bright, Virginia’s first wedding inspiration blog.  Enjoy!

I’ve been meaning to write this post for some time now, but I just never really had a chance to sit down and do it. Now that I’ve finally got a few minutes to write about these gorgeous albums, I’m REALLY excited to share them with you guys!

After researching a few album companies, I settled on Madera. The books are absolutely beautiful. Hands down they’re my absolute favorite way to look at my images! I want each and every one of my clients to have one!!


Each page features an artfully designed layout designed to tell the story of the wedding day. Images are printed onto archival quality photographic paper, then mounted onto a thick and durable substrate. These pages mean business. They wouldn’t bend if the Incredible Hulk tried to bend them. Super durable. And all of the pages lay flat too!




The books are bound in buttery leather covers (that smells amazing!). They also come with an incredible leather storage case!


Albums are truly meant to stand the test of time in a way that Facebook albums or cloud storage galleries can’t or won’t. Technology changes almost at the speed of light, and a wedding album is so low tech, its almost ahead of the curve. It’s going to outlast Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and yes, even Google Plus. These albums also aren’t printed on cheap, flimsy paper and slapped together like photo books. They’re handcrafted, and you can tell by looking at them. They’re freaking awesome. You can bet that they’ll be the thing you pull out every year on your anniversary to remember what your wedding day was like, when otherwise it’s nothing but a hazy memory in your mind. They’re what your children and grandchildren will look through one day. And, the awesome part is, they’re made to withstand years and years of touching, page turning, and perusing. If you couldn’t already tell, I’m pretty obsessed with them, and I know if you take a peek at one, you’ll be obsessed too!

Thanks Katie for sharing your lovely pictures!
