Colorado Wedding Photographer

fun photos for fun people

because you should
feel like this 
on your wedding day

take a moment and ask yourself

How do you want your wedding day to feel?

For real, take a minute. How do you picture your wedding day? 

Is it a big party with all of your family and friends? Is it an intimate gathering with just a few of your favorite people? 

Your wedding day should be all about you and your partner. Make the day whatever you want it to be. 

I strongly believe your wedding day should be fun, heartfelt and authentic

I believe in candid moments. And I believe that you should actually enjoy your wedding day. 

Sound good?

questions to ask your photographer

"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!"

Colorado Wedding Photographer

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.

Click below to see in-depth guides of areas I frequently service.

let's chat about

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?

"She made us feel like models in front of the camera, when we both don't enjoy getting our photos taken."

"I was blown away at how at ease we were in her presence (I'm not a fan of having my photo taken)."

"She made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day and kept great energy throughout the whole night."

"We were a little worried about looking and feeling awkward but Leah made us feel so comfortable."

candids won't be captured?

"She did an amazing job at being a fly on the wall while grabbing those candid moments."

"She knew exactly how to capture the perfect moments. Our families cannot look at the photos without crying." 

"She was able to capture so many candid moments.  So many show us laughing and having fun."

"There is such a great blend of candid and posed, and we love how natural they look." 

the experience will be stressful?

"Leah was always professional. She's a calming force during a hectic & chaotic time." 

"She has a very smooth photography planning workstream and was such a treat to work with."

"I was so nervous but this girl made everything so so easy from the first minute we even talked. "

"She felt like one of the family. Everything felt stress free. Leah pays attention to so many small details."

i don't actually care about your day?

"She kept us laughing all day long and helped calm me down during some very stressful moments."

"She is a wonderful person and you will feel like she is someone you could be best friends with."

"She brought such a great positive energy to the day which helped melt away any potential stress."

"Leah is so wonderful! She is the sweetest person and her work on our wedding photos was perfect!"

you won't like your photos?

"She perfectly captured our love for each other. We will always be so grateful for her amazing services"

"Thanks to Leah, we have the most beautiful wedding photos. She's apart of the family now!"

"Leah is talented beyond belief. There is not a SINGLE PHOTO that we didn't love. NOT A SINGLE ONE."

"Even my husband who has been in a million weddings said she's the best photographer he's ever worked with! "

Yes! I offer Denver based senior/graduation photos and engagement sessions as well as a few limited family sessions. You can find more info on portrait sessions here. 

I have so many that I actually made a blog post specifically for this question, view a few of my favorite Colorado wedding venues here. 

I'd say about 90% of my couples say some variation of this. Firstly, my posing is very natural and organic, with enough direction that you'll know exactly what to do with your hands. But to help my couples feel even more at ease on wedding day I try to learn everything I can about y'all through consultation calls and pre-wedding questionnaires. This way on wedding day I can photograph y'all in an authentic and genuine way. And if you're still feeling nervous, I recommend booking an engagement session so we can have a little practice run!

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 will go live two weeks after your event. And then your final gorgeous images will be ready in 6-8 weeks, delivered in a private online gallery, available for all your friends and family to view and download.

A great question! There are so many incredibly talented Colorado 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. I'm able to accomplish this by providing lots of pre-wedding planning and communication. But don't take my word for it, check out some reviews from past clients!

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. 

I am located in Denver, Colorado. But I will travel wherever! Travel and lodging fees do apply if your event is further than 150 miles from 80020.

I've been photographing weddings professionally for 6 years now, but picked up my first camera way back in 2009. I started my business in Texas photographing seniors and family sessions. 

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.

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. 

I will send over a proposal that allows you to choose your perfect wedding package. A $1500 deposit will be due upon booking. You'll then sign a contract and be officially booked!

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. 

Yes! And I offer a 50% discount on them for wedding clients! Engagement sessions 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.
