Hi I'm Leanne!
I first started my business at 19 years old, and for eight years I’ve been following around newlyweds and families into woods, mountains, and the water to capture connection. I was born and raised in a small, very laid-back hippie town in Upstate New York (Finger Lakes Area), and like a migratory bird, I keep coming back.
I have found that I come across inspiration quite easily, as life is a continuous display of emotions and small moments, some that only last a fleeting second. Everything about the world captivates me – new places, cultures, people. Because of this, I’ve started roaming the Earth, while learning as much as I could from every place. As a result I’ve taken photos of couples and families in 18 countries and even lived abroad for a few years. My wanderlust is unquenchable, and my goal is to see as many new places as humanly possible.
My husband Zach and I, along with our loveable canine companion currently live on the outskirts of sunny Seattle, Washington. Out of all of the places I’ve ever been the Pacific Northwest has been the most inspiring to me. The roaring ocean, the majestic mountains, and the lush forests all steps from each other, what else could be more perfect? We’re the type of couple to Netflix and adventure (This Is Us in particular). We are last minute people and have been known to just jump into a car ( or plane, or train) with a moments notice and just wander. Other than that we are just a completely normal and simple couple known by all the Target clerks in town; we’re kind of regulars there.
So many emotions and connections occur on a wedding day, it’s my favorite thing to witness and document. I make it my sole mission to be there anticipating moments before they happen, its like a treasure hunt to me. My style is a mixture between being hands on and helping guide my couples to look their best in the dreamiest light possible, and coaching them through all the things, but also taking a step back and letting things unfold naturally and being a fly on the wall. Actually scratch that, a ninja, I’m like a freaking ninja on a wedding day.
