The best wedding decision you’ll make
TL;DR: Leah is an exceptionally talented and creative photographer, the value for what you get can’t be beat, she’s super professional and reliable, one of the nicest/coolest humans we have ever met, and she is like human Xanax on your wedding day— invaluable. Plus, you might just end up in a magazine!
My wife and I agree that if we had to play “desert island: wedding edition,” where you could only choose one thing about our wedding to keep, it would HANDS DOWN be Leah. And we had a phenomenal wedding, so that’s saying something.
My wife has a background in journalism and digital media, and I am... discerning, so we looked for a photographer for a while— a lot of nice folks who did good work but we weren’t wowed. And then we discovered Leah. After looking through her work, we had a facetime interview with her, and my now-wife and I were bowled over. She has this warmth and genuine excitement about getting to know you and celebrating your love that can’t be feigned. She got the vision for our wedding immediately, was excited with and for us, and has the ultimate “yes, and” attitude, which makes such a difference when facing the many inherent wedding planning challenges. We loved that she was open and excited about doing an out-of-state wedding— and her pricing was still more reasonable than many (less talented/experienced) folks in our area. In fact, her coming in from out of town made it that much better because all the settings/shots were tailored to us and our wedding (not the standard “this is where we do family shots at this venue”/stock photo kind of thing).
We were working with a limited budget but really wanted to do an engagement shoot, so we worked out a compromise wherein we traveled to TN and she came and met us for the best day.We drove around to an array of locations- some naturally beautiful and some that really demonstrated her exceptional “eye”. Highly recommend doing the engagement shoot if at all possible so you can get to know each other and get comfortable in front of the camera (not that it’s hard with her)! She captured our personalities and our dynamic so perfectly & artfully, and it was just a lot of fun, to boot.
Our wedding day was stressful, as most are, but she kept everyone calm while still being such a quiet presence that it was easy to forget she was there, so she captured so many tender moments. She did her best to help keep us on schedule but, through no fault of hers, we were running late so we had to switch up our plan for some shots, but she always made it work and kept us from feeling any stress about it. We got all the shots we wanted and then, more importantly, all of those that we hadn’t known we needed but are our favorites. She captured all of the joy, emotion and fun throughout our wedding day, and we couldn’t be more grateful because, considering all of the moving parts, it was no easy task! Everyone gushed over the photos and we gave her name a friend who ultimately hired her, which was no surprise.
The value for the quality of the final product you get from Leah is incredible— we received both prints and soft copies of an insane number of perfectly shot and edited photos, and we loved that she turned around a teaser of some of the best in a mind-bogglingly fast 24 hrs, which we really appreciated having in the come-down from the wedding.
The icing on the cake was that she submitted our photos to a number of publications/outlets, and our engagement shoot/story was featured on a number of blogs, as was our wedding, and our wedding was featured in print in Washingtonian Weddings magazine— a huge honor — all because of Leah’s eye!
Leah is the perfect mix of professional and personal— always responsive, sticks to deadlines, warm and personable, delivers above and beyond what she’s been contracted to do, and is the kind of person everyone should be lucky enough to have around on one of the most important days of their lives! Clearly we are big fans, and know anyone who decides to work with her will be, too.Sent on 08/15/2020

Made me feel comfortable
Leah was simply amazing! I knew I wanted to prospose to my girlfriend while we were on vacation in the smokies, so I knew I had to find a photographer near by. I did a lot of research through Google and Facebook, and that’s when I found Leah! It was really important for me that the photographer me LGBTQ+ friendly since we are a gay couple, and I knew right away when I found Leah that she was perfect! She scoped out the location and even gave me preview images of exactly where to stand, basically any of the details to me things go as smoothly as possible, and even recommendations on what time would be best with lighting and such! The quality of the images we received were amazing and we got them super quickly, as well as some preview images within 24 hours which is nice when you want to announce your new engagement. I would highly recommend Leah to anyone looking for a photographer, she made the experience so easy and pleasant, and my now fiancée didn’t suspect a thing which is exactly how I wanted it to go! :)Sent on 10/14/2020
