The Wedding Experience
Wedding photography is not only a passion of mine; I consider it a privilege. It’s an honor to be able to not only document your love, but to document two families becoming one. I love creating something tangible, authentic, and real. In a world that’s so fast-paced and filled with so many distractions it’s easy to lose sight of what matters the most; love. It’s not about pretty photos. It’s much more than that. It’s about love. It’s about those in-between moments when you think no one’s watching and you look into your love’s eyes and realize that this is exactly where you want to be and nothing else matters. It’s about time spent with your loved ones, celebrating two people and two families becoming one. It’s about making those intangible and unexplainable moments of joy, tranquility, and happiness...tangible.
Life takes us on an unpredictable roller coaster ride. But love endures through it all. Twenty years from now when you look back at your photos, I want your photos to be a reminder of how you felt on your wedding day. I want you to remember that through your journey of marriage, love never fails. When life get’s tough, love perseveres. When life gets hard, love always hopes. When you look back at your wedding photos, I want you to be reminded of how lucky you are to love and to be loved. I hope that your wedding photos will help you to never lose sight of the fact that it all started with love.
As a former bride, I’ve been in your shoes. I know everything that goes into planning a wedding and the stress that comes along with it. That’s why I do everything I can to make the process run smoothly for you.It’s about connection for me. I’ll help to create your Wedding timeline to ensure you have ample time for photos. I’ll make sure you look and feel your best, and most of all that you feel comfortable behind the camera. I’ll be your dress fluffer, bouquet holder, boutonniere pinner, veil fixer; anything you need. No detail goes unnoticed and I will make sure you look AMAZING. And most of all, that you have fun! Expect lots of fun!
The Engagement session
The engagement session is a great time to get to know me and used to being in front of the camera prior to your wedding day. It will also give you variety for your art work that you'll hang in your home. Engagmeent sessions are so fun and I really enjoy photographing them.
Albums and Artwork
As a boutique photography studio, I create personable experiences for all of my clients. One of my favorite parts of the process is creating your Wedding album and your artwork. Photography by Leandra is a full service studio offering a range of products that will showcase your wedding photos beautifully. I believe providing my clients with a full experience and full service, and providing products is a big component of that. I'm a firm believer in printing your photos. There's nothing more special than holding your wedding album in your hands, or walking past your favorite wedding images hanging on your walls.
My style is documentary...yet posed...artistic and yet classic. To say that I fit into only one of these aesthetics would be misleading. I don’t fit into any box. I incorporate different elements of these styles and make it my own. I will always make you look your best and photograph you in a way that accentuates who you are. I will never tell you to “fake” laugh; instead I’ll have you interact with each other so I can elicit real emotion from you. I will always look for the best light and use tools necessary in order to create beauty in any scene.
My intention is to always make you look your best, always making sure the light and the scene compliment you in a way that is beautiful and flattering. I’ll pose you in subtle and natural ways, never making you do something that is unnatural or uncomfortable for you. Then I wait for the moment to unfold. I want your photographs to be a true reflection of you and the moment that was captured. In everything, I want to always create artistic photographs that are natural, authentic, and romantic. I want to create photographs that a thousand words can’t even explain.
