Madera Books


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. :-)









Thank you Maritha!
