Leo made our wedding unforgettable, and now we have the photos to prove it!! Choosing a photographer is of course a very personal decision and relies on a lot of factors. However, what was most important to us was to not only get the best "end product" possible, but also enjoy the experience along the way.
As has been mentioned in previous posts, we have all been to the wedding where the photographer is bossing people around, constantly in the way, or just generally not very pleasant. Leo is the absolute opposite, and was in a word, AWESOME. His laid back personality made everyone feel at ease, but he was still able to keep us all in line and on schedule. He was extremely professional, but felt like he was actually one of our guests, blending in and (hopefully) enjoying himself too. His assistant was also extremely helpful and professional.
Leo requires a session ahead of the wedding, usually for engagement photos, which was a great idea. We were able to get to know each other, become comfortable, and also get a chance to see all his amazing ideas and photo skills first hand before the wedding. While ours was a bit out of the ordinary, Leo agreed to take time out of his holiday and photograph us in London while he was here (because we live here currently)! I have never heard of a photographer with such flexibility and commitment to his clients!
Lastly, although the photos pretty much speak for themselves, his photos are simply stunning! We were so pleased with all of the photos, which were given to us in true format very promptly after the event. (Not to mention, without any copyright stamping or anything), and he did not pressure us to buy photos from his website. Photographers in DC are not "cheap", but for everything we got out of the experience, I think it was well worth the price, and extremely good value.
