Madera Books


This week we are featuring a post by KRISTA BROWNING PHOTOGRAPHY.  Krista is a wedding photographer with a blend of photojournalistic style with classic portrait photography.  She  strives to capture emotion and personality in a fun and memorable way. Her post features our 10×10 top grain black leather book. Enjoy!

I have recently fallen in love!!!  Smitten really!  No, it’s not what you think……maybe it is:)  Venturing into wedding photography presented a problem for me.  Everyone wants digital images.  Ok, that is fine.  But, they really aren’t made for longevity.  I mean, how long did it take for 8 tracks or cassettes to be outdated?  The new imac’s no longer have cd slots.  Ok, hold up.  This blog is not about digital images!  Let me gather myself.  It is about my bride and groom falling in love with their images, images they can touch, look at (even if the power is out or ninjas highjacked their computers).  That is where Madera Books Wedding Albums comes in.  I wanted to offer a high quality album that would be the next best thing to being at the wedding, able to stand the test of time, and be beautiful, exquisite.

First off, the album comes in a leather box with a magnetic closure.

You can have your album engraved on the front, spine or both.

I chose to do this sample album with the standard top grain leather, but you can choose linen, premium calf or lamb leather as well.

The pages are Kodak Endura photographic prints mounted on a thick substrate.  Look how thick the pages are!!

The pages are cut, not folded.  So, you don’t have to worry about degradation in the crease of the pages.  And, as you can see

the gutter is almost non existent.  Which means you can easily do a full spread across the width of the album.
