by Leah Goetzel Photography
I'm so excited and humbled that you're interested in having me document your wedding. I know that choosing a wedding photographer is a big commitment so I'm honored that you're here!
As a Colorado wedding photographer, I believe wedding photography should be fun and authentic. I want your wedding photos to be a snapshot of how your day was. I want you to be able to look back in 20 years and remember your dad's face as he saw you for the first time, I want you to remember your bridesmaid going ham on the dancefloor and spilling her drink all over her dress, I want you to remember that exact moment your fiance looked up at you and realized that y'all were no longer fiance's but about to be partners for life.
I spend a lot of time with couples on their wedding day, sometimes more than they do with each other. So it's super important to me that we get along great! I only take on a limited number of weddings each year to guarantee I can put all my time and effort into my couples, which is why it's important for me to make sure we're the right fit!
If you have any questions along the way, don't hesitate to send me a message! I know the journey of planning a wedding can be a stressful one- that's why I want to do everything in my power to make this experience easy and fun!

"THE KINDEST SOUL YOU'LL EVER MEET"
"She truly puts her clients first and will go through great measures to make sure they are comfortable and happy with their photos. I was on a budget for photos and I do not exaggerate when I say that she is the most talented photographer I know. In my opinion she's the best of the best and for a great price. I could not recommend her enough I'm so happy to of met such a wonderful person!"
"We cannot say enough good things about Leah!"
"She took the time to plan out a detailed wedding day schedule with us and to get to know our preferences for photos, so she could be sure to capture the moments that were most important to us. On the wedding day, Leah kept to the schedule and made taking photos so fun! But my husband and I were nervous about taking couples photos, but Leah made it so easy and fun. Many of our family members commented on how efficient the family portraits were. We were able to get all the photos we wanted and more! We are so happy with all the wonderful photos we received from Leah. We highly recommend Leah Goetzel Photography!"
"LEAH IS THE TYPE OF PERSON YOU NEVER FORGET"
"Me and my husband booked her as our wedding photographer in October of 2018. Leah was such an absolute joy to work with!! Her positive and reassuring attitude throughout the day kept such a calm and fun atmosphere present. We did experience some rain on our day which I thought might ruin some of our special shots we were trying to capture, but Leah delivered beautifully and worked with the elements to create photos that we will cherish for a lifetime. Not only is she great at what she does but she is also a wonderful person and you will leave your session feeling like she is someone you could be best friends with."
"Simply, working with leah was a dream"
"Our wedding celebration had to be postponed due to COVID. However, she was able to capture both our original wedding day in March as well as our newly scheduled wedding celebration in July. Leah was always professional while also managing to seem like someone you've known for years. She's a calming force during a hectic & chaotic time. On top of her reassuring demeanor, she captured both days perfectly. Her positivity carried us through the uncertainty of both days and working with her was an absolute joy. We can't wait to work with her in the future and would recommend her to anyone looking for the most amazing partner on your special day!"
"LEAH MADE OUR DAY SO SPECIAL"
"She knew exactly what to do and how to get the shots we really wanted. Leah and her assistant, Zain, helped make the day run smoothly and held our hands through the scheduling process. She also has a great "bride guide" on her website to help her clients know what to expect on their big day as well as tips leading up to it. Leah was respectful and polite but stern and took charge when necessary to keep the day running smoothly and include all of the memories in the photos. I actually cried when we got our sneak peek gallery because of how well they turned out and how they brought me back to the day, all of the emotions and love. Could not recommend Leah Goetzel Photography more, so impressed."
"I don’t know where to begin! Leah was awesome with our wedding and engagement photos. She kept me calm the entire day of the wedding, and even offered me her tide stick to get the stain out of my wedding dress (which worked). She went above and beyond the normal duties of a wedding photographer, and she made sure I stayed hydrated all day! She was excellent with staying on my day of timeline, and she assured me that we were right on schedule. We HIGHLY recommend Leah! She does not disappoint!"
"YOU'd BE CRAZY NOT TO BOOK LEAH"
"From the engagement shoot to the bridal portraits and the wedding she went out of her way to make everything perfect! Her kind heart and outstanding professionalism made working with her so easy. Leah isn’t there to just capture pictures, she is there to capture moments and emotions that will last a lifetime. If you are looking for a photographer, your search is over. Don’t pass this girl up!"
"Leah is a MUST hire"
"She knows the perfect angles and poses and is especially talented when it comes to delivering the final results!! It was my first time working with a professional photographer and I was not let down by the quality or pricing Leah has to offer! Literally smiling as I write this! I wish you so many more clients Leah!"
"SUCH A GREAT EXPERIENCE"
"The pictures turned out beautifully and she got them to us so quickly. There is such a great blend of candid and posed, and we love how natural they look. She is so kind, mindful, and considerate. She is very professional and helped make our wedding day stress-free. We can't recommend her highly enough. Thanks again Leah!"

What to Expect
the fridge photos your mom wants
The classic, smiling at the camera shot. I call em the "boring facebook prof pic" or the "mom shot". They may not be the most creative or the flashiest, but they are some of the most important shots of the day!
"candids" for the gram
The pics your bestie wants. Those smiling, totally "candid" shots of you laughing with your crew.
more movement, less awkward posing
I love relaxed and natural couples photos. The best images come from when you're just being yourselves. Don't worry, I'll still give you direction. You're not on your own out there!! I just want you to feel comfortable and at ease.
the "is that us?!" shot
Let's capture the essence of y'all, but still give you that "holy sh*t we look gooooood" moment. I'm all about finding the good good light and making y'all feel like rockstars in front of the camera.
capturing the in between
Those intimate moments that will have you thinking, "I didn't even realize you captured that!". You might not remember these tiny, little moments– but they're what make your day feel like your day.
the big 3
The most important shots from the ceremony, I have dubbed, "the big 3". The first look shot, the walking down the aisle shot, and the kiss. This is my "palms are sweaty, moms spaghetti" moment of your wedding day. I can't and won't miss these shots, I know how important they are for you and your family.
details done differently
I want to make sure to photograph all those special items that you chose for your wedding day. That special tie, those shoes, grandma's necklace. I want to bring those details to life. So yes, we'll get some safe shots of your details– but I also want them to emote and not just be placed awkwardly on the ground.
receptions photos with energy
This isn't your 6th grade dance, let's bring some energy and movement into your reception photos. I want you to feel like you're back on the dancefloor when you go through your gallery.
