    Perfectly captured our day

    Photography was something that was really important to me when planning our wedding and Leah's photos really caught my eye with how natural they were and I loved how they were edited. Only made better with how easy Leah was to work with. She gave great advice, listened to my wishlist and kept everything running smoothly on the day. She was so communicative, set expectations and delivered our photos when she said she would. We had her do both our engagement photos, as well as our wedding, and we are SO happy we did. They are memories and photos that we will cherish forever!

    Amazing Wedding Photos By Leah Beachy

    Leah was awesome to work with! We wanted someone that could capture the big moments as well as the little moments. One thing we noticed about some galleries during our initial search was that many photos looked forced or staged. It was important to us to get someone that also captured those candid moments. Leah can do it all! She did a great job directing everyone for the posed pictures but also was great at catching people just having a good time. Her husband assists her so we actually had two cameras going at all times. Her communication is quick and available. She worked seamlessly with our schedule and gave tips on the planned photoshoot time. 10/10 would hire her again for vow renewals in 40 years if she's still at it!

    Fantastic Photographer!

    Leah and her husband were nothing short of wonderful. She was able to produced fantastic photos that were above and beyond what we were expecting. She was very pleasant to work with leading up to and during the wedding. She is also a very considerate listener who ensured we got the types of photos we were looking for. We can't imagine a better wedding photographer, and are so grateful she chose to work with us.

    Couldn't have asked for a better photography experience!

    My partner and I were having an intimate wedding with less than 30 people and only need a 4-hour photography package, other vendors made us feel guilty for not needing 8-12 hours, Leah celebrated the unique wedding we were having and made us feel special for choosing a smaller wedding, never once making us feel that our small wedding wasn't a burden for her. In addition to her compassion and kindness, she is very talented at her craft. She did a great job of making us feel comfortable and capturing our engagement photos and wedding photos! We'd highly recommend her!!

    The best of the best!

    Leah and her husband are so amazing! They are so comfortable to be around and helped direct us through pictures, since my husband and I don't like being the center of attention. My family was so complimentary of their professionalism, and so are we. We loved having them be apart of our wedding day!

    Leah Beachy Photo + Design's reply:

    Katie & Dayton- Thank you so much for your kind words! We loved meeting you and being a part of your BEAUTIFUL wedding day!!

    We love Leah!

    Leah and her husband were excellent wedding photographers. They were very easy to work with, very prepared for all situations, and great communicators. On the day of the wedding, they were so calming and happy and really felt like part of the family! And we have just gotten the photos back and we could not be happier with the quality of them. Leah captured all of the moments I was hoping would be captured, and then some! She had great instincts and a style that we loved. I would highly recommend her to anybody planning a wedding or any other family event. Thank you, Leah!

    Leah Beachy Photo + Design's reply:

    Amelia & Matthew- We loved getting to know you guys through all of your wedding festivities! It was such a beautiful and special day. I'm so glad you're loving your photos :) Happy almost 3 months!

    Leah is incredible!

    We had a fantastic and beautiful wedding day, made even easier and more seamless by having Leah and her husband take our photos. She was flexible, organized, and put together an *incredible* album for us to share and always look back on. We have been told over and over again that the photographs are worthy of a professional magazine or wedding blog. If you are looking for a breathtaking photographer and memories of your day that are well preserved, Leah Beachy is the your best bet!

    Thank you, Leah and Kurt!!

    Best Wedding Photographers Ever!

    Leah & Kurt are seriously the best. From our consultation with them to receiving the finished photos, they captured our dream day better than we could have ever imagined. Leah was always easy to work with and helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera, while also organizing our large wedding party and family photos. Seamless, magical, and unforgettable. Thank you so much, Leah & Kurt!

    Hiring Leah was the best wedding decision we made

    We say it time and time again - hiring Leah was by far the best wedding decision we made (other than choosing each other of course). Leah happened to be a part of our getting together, although she never knew it, and had mutual friends with us both from different seasons of life.
    I loved the high quality of Leah's work, her timeless style, her joyful and authentic personality, and her heart to serve first and foremost.
    I was pretty picky about my vision for an engagement shoot. I asked Leah if we could hike out to a particular spot. It wasn't the right time of the year so she lovingly redirected me to some different options - some of which even she was unfamiliar with but willing to offer. We ended up choosing one of the unknowns that required a little bit of driving. We loved getting to hang out with Leah and her husband, Kurt. We had a blast of a time and left just thinking "okay, but can we be friends after our wedding please??!" We knew right then and there we had made the best decision.
    When it came to our wedding, we are both the first in our families to get married and didn't have a wedding planner. Planning a wedding in under 7 months is already stressful let alone during Covid. Leah was so helpful to offer advice when we asked along the way, and help guide us through the process as her photography clients. When the big day came, Leah kept us calm, collected, and overjoyed (even when silly wedding hiccups came along the way).
    We truly love Leah, her heart, and her quality of work and cannot recommend her enough. Hiring her just might be the best wedding decision you make too. ;)

    Timeless, professional

    Leah and her husband absolutely blew away my expectations for our wedding day. My husband and I were looking for a wedding photographer whose style was timeless and natural. We wanted our wedding photos to still be in style many many years from now, rather than dated with sepia-tone. Leah absolutely delivered what we were looking for. From the beginning she was very responsive, organized, and affordable (in my personal opinion she is a hidden-gem and could charge much more for the quality and artistic ability she provides!). She offered amazing input about the flow of the wedding day and where to fit in pictures with family, first look with my father, wedding party, etc. She really is an expert in how to make weddings flow with photography as naturally as possible. Yet she still met my requests of certain must-have photo opportunities. Not to mention, Leah and her husband had a smile on their face the ENTIRE day and night despite the unexpected 106+ degree weather. Leah, you provided us with photos of our special day we will be able to cherish for a lifetime. We had such a hard time choosing which to frame around our house, that we ordered nearly all the rest in a wedding photo album. I could not recommend Leah enough. Leah, thank you thank you thank you. We are blown away.
