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.Sent on 08/18/2014
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.
You will not be disappointed w/ Leo Druker!!

My husband and I are just blown away by the joyous moments Leo was able to capture so beautifully. The pictures tell the story of our day so perfectly. Choosing our photographer was the first thing I wanted to do when we started planning, and it was the most important aspect of the planning process for me. I knew I wanted to work with Leo after seeing his portfolio and reading reviews, and when we met with him it was just a done deal. He was an absolute pleasure to work with prior to the wedding and a blast to hang out with on the day of. Leo was with us all day and also set up a photobooth during the reception.Sent on 01/04/2014
I am absolutely in love with the photos. Thank you!!

After your wedding is over, you are left with the memories and the pictures. These are both reasons that it makes sense to choose Leo as your photographer. With respect to the pictures, Leo is incredibly talented. He has an eye for things and places that will make truly jaw dropping images. I can't tell you how many brilliant pictures we have from the wedding thanks to Leo being in the right place at the right time with the right angle and the right light. He just has an instinct that can't be taught.Sent on 12/31/2013
However, in my view, the amazing images are not the most important reason to choose Leo. It's because he manages to do capture those images while letting you live your wedding. We've all been at the wedding where the photographer blocks everyone's view, is always hovering 6 inches from the bride and groom, and where you feel like you are watching a documentary being filmed rather than being part of a celebration. While your special day is something you want documented, your pictures and your photographers shouldn't be something you are thinking too much about. You should be completely in the moment and wrapped up in the whirlwind of emotions. Leo somehow manages, through voodoo or jujitsu or something, to not get in the way of the ebb and flow of the wedding but to consistently get beautiful pictures of significant and insignificant moments that tell your story. It is probably partially that you don't have to worry -- you know he is on his game and that he will be there for as long as you need him. With Leo there's none of this "you only get 6 hours of coverage" stuff, so you don't have to try to cram all of your moments into a perfect time line.
When we look through our wedding pictures, who we are together and separately comes shining through. There are tears, laughter, celebration, and embraces caught on film. There are images that can bring me back to how I felt in a particular moment that will now last forever, thanks to Leo.
I had the pleasure of working with Leo this past fall. He is not what you would expect from a wedding photographer - but much, much more. Completely unobtrusive, you would never know he was there. Not bringing potentially annoying lighting strobes I have seen from many others. By maintaining a low profile, you will wonder... "How did he get that shot? I never knew he was there...". Also, he take his craft so seriously that he will share any picture from his portfolio. That level of confidence is rare these days. Give Leo a call to document your special day.
