As a Colorado wedding photographer, I make it a part to be there for my clients every step of the way. From our first consults to the "I do's" to image delivery, I promise to make this experience stress free and fun!
Your wedding photographer is like a member of your wedding party. In fact you'll probably see me at your wedding more than your own mother! I strongly believe choosing a wedding photographer is more than just picking someone to show up wedding day and take a few pictures. I want to know my couples, I want to help with their timelines and their wedding prep. I want to know the names of your dogs and where you're going on your honeymoon. I want to create an experience for you.
congratulations on your engagement!

"Leah isn’t there to just capture pictures, she is there to capture moments and emotions that will last a lifetime."
your experience matters
I want you to have gorgeous photos of your wedding.
But what might surprise you, is the most important thing to me is making sure you enjoy your day.
Your wedding day isn't a photoshoot. It's not a time for me to build my portfolio.
It's about you and your partner and celebrating with your closest people.
To me, the experience is everything.

You will never feel like you booked me and then I vanished. Making sure I'm present and available for any questions or help you need along the way is huge in the experience I provide.
It is super important that I get to know all my couples, so I send out a questionnaire after booking and 3 months before wedding day. These help me tailor your day specifically to you and your needs.
All couples receive a 50% off discount on engagement sessions. Engagement sessions are one of the best ways for us to get to know each other before the wedding day.
Immediately after booking you'll receive an in-depth wedding or elopement guide. This has tons of information from location ideas to sample timelines.
Heard of the horror stories of couples not seeing a single wedding photo for months? Don't worry about that with me! All couples receive a sneak peek in 24 hours and a full 80 image highlight gallery in just 1 week!

WHAT IS A FIRST LOOK? SHOULD I HAVE ONE?
A first look is when the couple sees each other before the ceremony. These moments are usually quite intimate with only the couple and the photographer. As a photographer I love first looks for a few reasons. Firstly it really is an emotional moment, I've found that grooms feel like they can be more emotional since it's so private. And also it allows for so many more photos! After the first look we can do couples photos before the ceremony. Without a first look everyone typically hides out in their getting ready location so they aren't seen beforehand.
That being said, it's totally a personal decision! Seeing each other at the ceremony is definitely more traditional, so if that's what you've envisioned your whole life, do it!
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 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.
WHAT IF I DON'T WANT TO USE MY ALBUM CREDIT, CAN IT BE SUBBED?
Album credits are gifted onto all weddings booked after January 2022. This credit is simply a gift and has no real monetary value. I feel super passionately about my couples having an album, which is why I've offered this credit. The credit cannot be used or subbed for any other product or service.
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 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.
