    Fantastic!

    I can't say enough great things about Leah! She did our engagement and wedding photos and they turned out beautifully! She was so easy to work with and super helpful in creating our day of timeline and keeping everyone on track the day of the wedding. My husband and I both felt a little awkward about having our photos taken, but Leah made us feel so relaxed and we really enjoyed laughing and joking with her. It was more like hanging out with a friend who just happens to be taking tons of pictures of you :) I'm so thankful we found Leah and have these beautiful photos to remember our big day!

    Photos FILLED with laughter and smiles!

    Leah was an absolute mastermind behind the camera! I stumbled across Leah's page before she moved to the Cincinnati area and fell in love with how natural her photos looked - no sultry stares between bride and groom, no sweeping cityscapes with bride and groom tucked in the corner, and no doctored lighting. Her photos just captured the day. And it was such a lovely day! Leah was so relaxing and comfortable around us and our families. It was like having a friend of ours take pictures the whole time - she just slid in like a guest at the wedding! We loved how she just captured the day and the people. We couldn't be happier.

    Incredible and professional wedding photographer.

    Leah was amazing to work with! She made the whole day flow smooth. I’d recommend her to anyone!!! She truly captured our wedding day beautifully! I’ve had so many people comment on how nice she was to work with and how well she did with our photos. She came in relaxed and so very friendly, she had a way of relaxing the whole atmosphere. Can’t say enough nice things about her!! HIRE HER!! ❤️

    Wonderful, and flexible photographer

    I may be biased but I've known Leah since high school. I have seen her work develop through the the years and was even there for her first wedding shoot. When we got engaged years later, we thought about Leah for possibly doing our engagement shoot. She was quick in her response and very flexible. She was down for an adventure, so we agreed to meet in a place where my fiance and I have never been, and a place she has never photographed, Smith Rock. Leah came with a second shooter. It isn't easy having someone up in your face with a camera while you make kissy faces, but she made the experience very comfortable (maybe because I knew her personally, but my fiance felt the same way as well). We actually had fun during the photo session. Fast foward to when we received the photos, we got our photos on a USB drive with all the high quality photos (I know some photographers only give you X amount of photos). The photos came out better than we imagined! Without a doubt we wanted to hire Leah for our wedding. Unfortunately she moved out to Ohio with her husband and we were getting married in Oregon. Luckily, she travels to oregon often and was available to shoot for our wedding! We discussed our options and her hourly availability and what she offers, especially for the quality of work that she provides, seems like a steal. If you all didn't know, leah also does graphic design too, so when I needed two different sets of invites that needed to be bilingual, she can also design wedding invites!
    Fast foward to our wedding, she was very organized but also went with the flow in our 400+ crazy asian wedding. We got our photos back in about 2 months which i think is pretty average. But her artistry is like wizardry, because she made us look like models from a wedding magazine. we also got so many pictures back that it took us hours to look through them all.
    Overall, we can't recommend Leah enough. Hire her now.

    Absolutely wonderful!

    Leah & her husband are fantastic people! My husband & I were so lucky to have them be apart of our day & capture every moment. The pictures were beyond my expectations. Every picture was edited and looked as if it were out of a magazine. I couldn’t have selected better people to capture our true happiness on our wedding day! (P.s. my husband hates taking pictures but you would never know). We are forever grateful for them! If you guys want fantastic pictures for a reasonable price, Leah is your person!

    Leah was so great to work with! Leah shot both our engagement and wedding pictures and they turned out amazing. She is so easy to work with and she makes you feel so comfortable. At our wedding she had a plan and was a great listener to what my husband and I wanted even if it wasn’t on our picture list! I highly recommend Leah for all your photography needs!

    So professional, beautiful photos!

    Working with Leah was so easy and we truly were so happy with our wedding photos. Leah took care to be totally flexible to our wants and needs. In turn, she helped us understand what information we needed to provide her to make the day go smoothly. She even came to my house to meet and discuss day-of plans! She provided us easy-access to our pictures (via USB drive) and made it possible for us to share with family/friends (via her website). She somehow managed to capture tender moments without me (the bride) even realizing her presence. I am thankful to have had her on our wedding day and am even more grateful for the memories she captured!

    When choosing a photographer, I was worried about how he/she would shoot us being such different skin tones; but she did an excellent job at shooting and editing our photos. Loved working with her. She is super sweet and great at her job.

    Leah did our wedding in August of 2017. Despite newly moving to Ohio from Oregon the week before, Leah was punctual, calm, and simply wonderful to work with. We received all of our photos within the timeline she quoted and we could not be happier with how they turned out. She is extremely talent at what she does!!! Will always recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!!

    Leah and her husband (second shooter) were absolutely amazing! They were both so professional yet laid back. Our wedding was in the woods on a 90 degree day and they were all smiles. They helped coordinate our family and friends in such a smooth and unstressful way. I would highly recommend Leah, we can't wait to see our photos!

    Leah goes above and beyond wedding day photographers' protocol -- Of course, we expect the big day will be met with communication challenges and overall stress, and I was not the exception for such a scenario! Not only did Leah liaise between the bridal party and families, but she made sure her partner was on the same page. As some of us were fretting over who needs to be where, when, Leah calmly and professionally orchestrated the capturing of the best moments among over 200 people all day. The quality of her finished product is outstanding - the album my husband and I received in the form of a rustic gift box enclosing a wooden USB exceeded my expectations, and the images took our breath away. However, when it comes to Leah's services, the thing I will honestly hold the most dear is one small moment during the big day where she read what must have been an expression of exasperation and, dropping everything, put her hand upon my shoulder, asking, "what do you need?".

    Leah met with us before our wedding day to get to know us, find out what style of photos we liked, and learn more about our special day. She created a timeline for the wedding day and was very flexible with our large family. She captured beautiful memories of our wedding day that we will treasure for many years to come!

    Leah is incredible at what she does. We had a large wedding party and so many different strong personalities throughout our families and she handled everyone's request with ease, thought and professionalism. There were moments throughout the night that did not go as planned and she rolled with all of it. I love my photo's and continue to get compliments on her work. We had a destination wedding and Leah took, the time to scout out the best spots to make the day go smooth. She provided just the right amount of direction, while listening to what we wanted as a couple. I would suggest Leah to anyone looking for photographer. She is so great.

    Leah is a great photographer and is very friendly. Our wedding was on a very hot day but she was very positive and did a wonderful job. She has a great eye for beautiful backgrounds and our photos turned out gorgeous. She also kept our photos on schedule and was very good at working with the wedding party and family. I highly recommend Leah!
