Your love story is unique and you want your photographs to reflect that. As your wedding photographer, I value that deeply and want the photos I take to capture your true spirit. I love the energy of weddings and recording moments as they come. My goal is for you to feel natural, and comfortable while I create beautiful portraits that embody your connection. My shooting style is photojournalistic, but I help guide you when needed. I avoid stiff posing in favor of honest embraces, and time for you to be together. At the end of the day I want your photographs to encapsulate the way you felt, and overall atmosphere of your celebration.

The most surreal photos of my life
Leslie is pure magic. Her photos give me chills, every single one. She sees people and places differently than most run of the mill wedding photographers - she is truly an artist. Her photos are moody in all the right ways and really encapsulate the people in the photo but also the magic of the setting. I can't say enough good things about her approach to our wedding day and how diligent she was throughout the whole process. She was able to wrangle 40+ people for a group photo and that takes serious skill. She is so lovely to work with and beautiful inside and out. She did our engagement photos as well as our wedding. Thank you Leslie for capturing all the best moments of our wedding day!Sent on 06/26/2019

Lovely to work with!
We absolutely loved working with Leslie! We originally picked her because we liked her photography style, and we're so happy we did because in addition to the gorgeous photos she took, she went above and beyond to make our day smooth and perfect. She is incredibly professional, punctual, and had our photos ready when promised. In general she is a lovely human.Sent on 08/04/2019
We had never had professional photos taken and therefore we were a little nervous and didn't really know what to expect. Leslie guided us through our portraits while still letting us choose how and where we wanted them and made us feel at ease. At our reception she was inconspicuous and we were amazed at all the different shots and angles she got; she was all over the place! At the same time she was very attentive and clearly wanted to make sure that we got all the specific photos that we wanted. We would love to work with her again and definitely recommend her to others!

Leslie Swan is an amazing photographer and an amazing person
If you're thinking about whether or not to hire Leslie to photograph your wedding, think no further.Sent on 06/23/2019
Leslie exceeded every one of our expectations. She made the trip from Maine to Brooklyn to do our engagement shoot, and we loved her as soon as we met her. She took a genuine interest in us as a couple, and made sure our shots were true to us, and that we were as comfortable as possible in front of the camera. The whole session felt like hanging out with friends.
On our wedding day, she was incredible. She basically floated around our 200 person wedding, capturing the subtle details and candid moments. We received hundreds of photos that are frame-worthy. Even for a big wedding like ours, she somehow got it all.
The whole wedding industry can feel so canned and prescriptive, but Leslie is the opposite of all of that. She is a genuinely good person who wants to help you capture your day as you felt it. I would 100% recommend Leslie to anyone looking for a photographer who feels like someone you would invite to your wedding!

I recently had the privilege of working with Leslie at a lovely outdoor Bed and Breakfast wedding and she was a true gem! Leslie is sweet, personable and easy going all while getting the job done taking amazing pictures. Her sweet nature made my job as a wedding planer super easy. Leslie is fabulous with her couples too; making them feel relaxed in front of the camera. Leslie has a very calming nature that puts everyone at ease. Her face was always bright with a lovely smile and I would enjoy the opportunity to work with her again. You're a delight Leslie!
