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 the day, but also taking a step back and letting things unfold naturally. You deserve your wedding day to be about you and your connections with the people you love, I am here to freeze it in time.
The flowers will fade and the food will be eaten and at the end of the day all you will have left are your preserved memories.
Money, its weird to talk about yet it runs most of the world. I have been photographing weddings far before I could legally drink. I have put blood sweat and tears into this business. I spend thousands a year investing in my own education so that I can better serve my couples. My backup gear has backup gear. That being said I understand budgets and if you would really like me to photograph your wedding but your budget is a little less, or you need a different payment plan, it is totally okay to still reach out and we can try to work something out.
Let me guess your thinking ” were awkward” or “were not used to the camera.” I’m here to tell you that its totally fine to feel these things, and most people do at first. The good thing is that almost every couple that I have ever photographed has come out of it saying how much fun they had and how comfortable I made them feel.
I am here to lead you into the dreamiest of light. Help you not look like a potato. Document your day as it really was. Ultimately, I will provide the both of you your first family heirlooms, and ease any stresses you may have during the day. Need someone to hold your lip gloss? thats what I have a fanny pack for. Worried about hearding your bridal party and big family for formals? I used to work at daycare I got you

Working with Leanne was such a great experience. She was very easy to talk to, really considered our vision for our wedding day, and delivered beyond our expectations. I had a huge wedding party along with family and friends from all over the world and she handled everything with so much grace. Not only is she super professional, but she is able to make even the most camera shy people (my husband and I) feel totally at ease. I could go on and on about how happy we are with our experience. Professional, unreal talent, personable, organized, efficient, and a true artist.
We were lucky enough to have Leanne photograph both our engagement session in the Redwoods of California and our wedding a year later in New York. I can’t say enough about how amazing she is to work with. Both my husband and myself felt so at ease with Leanne and loved her laid back shooting style. She has a way of directing shots without actually posing anything. She gave just enough direction where I felt confident we were doing the right things with our bodies and hands to get good shots, but not so much that it felt unnatural. She also did an impeccable job at capturing the real candid moments throughout the day and night, never putting her camera down and always on the lookout for authentic emotion or the perfect light. Not only is she great to work with during the event, but the quality of her photos are leaps and bounds above any other photographer I’ve seen. The way she sees the world through her camera lens is even better than reality.
SHE KEPT US LAUGHING AND MY ADMITTEDLY SEMI-AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA HUSBAND HAD A BALL AND LOOKED AMAZING IN ALL OF THE PICTURES. SHE WAS SO ENTHUSIASTIC AND BRAVED ROCKS, WATER AND CLIFFS TO GET THE PERFECT SHOTS FOR US. SHE NAILED THAT "DREAMY" SUNSET LOOK I WANTED AND WE HAD THE PERFECT MIX OF "MOM AND DAD" POSES (SMILING AT THE CAMERA), MORE NATURAL INTIMATE MOMENTS, AND BEAUTIFUL SCENIC SHOTS. WE ARE IN LOVE WITH OUR PICTURES AND WILL TREASURE THEM AND THAT DAY FOREVER.'
Still have questions?
What is your primary style?
Others have described my style as laid back, candid, and romantic. I am always on the hunt for the dreamiest light possible. I tend to focus on natural emotions, real love, and real laughter. I love setting things up and then walking away and letting things unfold naturally.
Where are you located?
Currently I go back and forth between my hometown in Upstate New York and Sunny Seattle Washington. My husband serves in the military so we move around quite a bit, it's a lifestyle.
Do you travel?
Yes I do! I actually prefer living life out of a suitcase. My passport is my most prized procession besides my pup of course.I was blessed to have lived in Europe for 1.5 years where I photographed couples and families all throughout the world. This includes all of Northern and Southern Italy, Budapest Hungry, Barcelona Spain, Santorini Greece, Paris France, and Geneva Switzerland, and Eastern Poland.
I have also photographed my way through the United States including New York, Massachusetts, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey, Indiana, Washington, Oregon, and California. So yep I'm no stranger to the road.
How do we get the pictures from you? How many images from our wedding will we get?
Your fully edited and retouched images will be uploaded onto an online gallery for easy viewing and downloading. I will also send you a zip file for even faster downloading. The final gallery will be delivered within 6-8 weeks from your wedding date. Sessions are 2-3 weeks.
I deliver an average of 100 images per hour of coverage.
How long have you been doing this? How did you start?
I started when I was practically a baby I couldn't even legally drink ( I was nineteen when I shot my first wedding.) It's been eight years now and I feel like I have literally grown up with my business, it's another limb to me.
I went to school for graphic design and have been using photoshop since I was in middle school. This all started because I used to take pictures of clouds while driving ( I know, I know) and post them on instagram. One of my friends who was engaged saw my posts, and asked me if I could photograph her engagement session. I thought clouds and couples those are kind of the same thing right?! So I shot her session on my iphone4 and she said she loved them so much she wanted me to do her wedding. That week my dad went "halfies" with me on a Canon Rebel and it's been an adventure ever since. Honestly I have no idea who I am without photography and I don't ever want to know.
What about prints and art work?
Being the nomad that I am, I'm all about the digital life. However, I know how important having tangible items are. They are ultimately your first family heirlooms. My online galleries are set up with a professional grade printing lab where you can buy prints, canvas, books, etc. It is really easy to share with friends and family so they can purchase prints as well. I also include a print release so that you can print anywhere you would like. I cannot however insure that it will look as good as the professional lab.
What is your payment plan?
Half down as a non refundable deposit is required to save your date. The other half is due 30 days prior to your wedding date. I try to make it easy with the math. I can take payments online or by check and carrier pigieon.
Can you help us plan our wedding?
Yes! After shooting over one-hundred weddings and being in this industry for most of my life I have seen a thing or two. I know what works and what doesn't work and I can help make a mean timeline. I also have a 70 page guide my couples get with all of my best advice on how to make the most out of your wedding photographs. I want you to have the best day possible.
Alright we want you by our side, what are the next steps?
Fill out the contact form and I will get ahold of you within 24 hours. From there we can set up a phone call if you would like or proceed with everything online. ( If I am where you are we can also meet up in person and grab coffee. ) After that I can send everything you need online and it can all be booked from the comfort of your own home, no pants required.
