"i feel like leah is my photographer-turned-best-friend!"
"Leah is such a genuine person and actually tries to get to know you and your partner. She wants to learn your personalities so its reflected in the pictures. Leah's now photographed our engagement session, our mini Covid wedding, and will photograph our full wedding next year. I wish we lived closer to each other (I'm now in Seattle, she will be in Denver) because I want her to capture ALL of our moments in the future, too! Book Leah today - you are doing yourself a disservice if you don't!"

Getting married in colorado? I got you! Texas? count me in! Iceland? My bags are already packed!
but traveling worldwide!
I am primarily a Colorado wedding photographer. But I built my business in Texas and it will always have a place in my heart. If you're getting married in Texas or any other destination– I'd love to chat with you! No destination is too far. I have traveled to over 45 countries and am an expert packer (roll your clothes y'all!!) and always passport ready.

60% candid, 40% posed
actually enjoy your day
My top priority is ensuring you enjoy your day. With the majority of my wedding coverage being candid, this means you get to just relax and enjoy while I focus on capturing the day how it looks. No 3 hour long posed photo sessions. With me, family photos are done in 15 minutes so you and your guests can actually have fun on your wedding day.
the little moments
These are my favorite things to capture and truly tell the full story of your day. The little glances, the tears, the hiccups– all those moments will transport you right back to your wedding day in 50 years. So while I love the epic shots, you'll also receive photos of your grandma holding your hand, your sister fixing your hair, your partner brushing away a tear.
no awkward photos
So many couples tell me "Leah help! We hate getting our photos done." "Leah, we're so awkward in front of the camera!". But have no fear. This is where that 40% posed really comes into play. I will tell you where to put your hands, fix your hair so you feel beautiful. I want you to love your photos– and sometimes you might need a little coaching, long story short. I got you!
that's what i want!
you'll look awkward in photos?
candids won't be captured?
the experience will be stressful?
i don't actually care about your day?
you won't like your photos?
WHAT IS TIMELINE PREP?
My first year in business, the thing my couples felt the most stressed about was planning their wedding timeline. Most couples don't know how long a cocktail hour should take or when photos should end due to sunset. So I started creating custom wedding timelines for all my couples to help ease that stress. I start by sending over a quick questionnaire right at booking, this includes things like: Are you having a first look? Do you have a big family? Those questions help me create a rough timeline for your day, this way you can confidently choose your ceremony time and send out invitations with little stress.
A couple months before your wedding I'll send out a more in depth timeline which will allow me to create a minute by minute timeline of your day. Let me take care of the difficult, stressful bits. You just enjoy the wedding planning process!
WHEN AND HOW ARE OUR PHOTOS DELIVERED?
You'll receive a sneak peek of a few images on social media within 72 hours because I know how eager couples are to see their images! A highlight blog post or highlight gallery will go live two weeks after your event. And then your final gallery will be ready in 6-8 weeks.
There is no cap on images I deliver for a wedding. The amount of images you receives varies from event to event, if you have more portrait time or lots of open dance floor dancing you'll have lots more images! But typically you'll receive 60-100 images per hour.
WHY SHOULD WE PICK YOU OVER ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER?
A great question! There are so many incredibly talented wedding photographers out there and being forthright, some might be a better fit for you than me. I truly believe that you should not only love a photographers work, but also their personality and experience that they'll give you. Most of my couples are working with me for over a year and then come wedding day, I will probably be the person you see the most! I pride myself on creating the best experience for my couples, I want to be an easy going and fun presence on your wedding day, but also able to keep the day running smoothly and efficiently.
The short answer: I do everything in my power for you to have a fun and stress-free wedding. My two main priorities are 1. a top notch experience and 2. beautiful photos.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? DO YOU TRAVEL?
I am located in Denver, Colorado. But I will travel wherever! Travel and lodging fees do apply. I offer discounted rates for certain "bucket list" wedding locations.
WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
My style is a mix of photojournalistic and traditional. I love capturing candid moments, the authentic smiles, the natural tears, the goofy glances— all the things that make your wedding authentically you. But I also want to make sure that you get the shots you've been waiting for. I want you to have the classic images of you and your partner seeing each other for the first time, or your first dance, or just a big family photo that your mom will display in her home.
DO YOU OFFER SMALL WEDDINGS & ELOPEMENTS?
Yes! Absolutely! Small intimate weddings (less than 20 guests) and elopements (less than 5 guests) are some of my favorite things to photograph! I typically only book these 3 months in advance or on weekdays.
HOW DO WE BOOK?
I will send over a proposal that allows you to choose your perfect wedding package. A $1000 deposit will be due upon booking, this retainer is non-refundable and reserves your date. You'll then sign a contract and be officially booked!
DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
Yes! In fact, my payment structure is already broken up into installments to make my services more accessible. Your payments will be broken up into 5 payments throughout your journey with me.
CAN YOU HOLD OUR DATE?
To be fair to everyone I can't hold dates without a signed contract and retainer.
DO YOU OFFER ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Yes! And I offer a 50% discount on them for wedding clients! Engagement shoots are a great way to see how my couples interact on their wedding day. We can chat about which poses you find most flattering and natural. I can see if you are more touchy and intimate or more reserved and traditional, all which will create a more seamless and streamlined wedding day experience. I only book these sessions on weekdays to save my weekends for weddings or quality time with my husband/friends.
Frequently Asked Questions
ALL ARE WELCOME HERE
I celebrate all humans and their form of love! You will be welcomed with open arms regardless of body image, gender, race, religion or sexual orientation. This is an inclusive and safe space. If that makes you uncomfortable we are probably not a good fit. But if you're still rockin' with me, I can't wait to be a part of your day!
