Happy Couples

We could not be happier with our decision to hire Leslie for our wedding in early November. She made the entire process joyous and easy, and she really listened to our vision for what the photographs would look like and the story that they would tell. We look forward to remembering the day with joy and love for many years thanks to Leslie’s expert documentation of the event. Leslie is devoted to her craft. She has seemingly endless ideas for creating unique shots. She uses all angles and spaces to her advantage. At one point she ran across a busy street to capture an image of us under a large “LOVE” sign from a traffic median. Ten minutes later, she was up on a stepstool perched atop a steep hill to get a beautiful shot of us with the Baltimore skyline in the background. We were consistently impressed with the lengths she would go to in order to craft the perfect image. When our final images arrived, we were just overwhelmed with joy. What we love most about the final product is that each image is composed thoughtfully and captures a really particular feeling or moment in the day. Some are silly, some are romantic, some are serious -- together they form a gorgeous mosaic of our experience sharing the day with family and friends.

I can not say enough about what a wonderful job Leslie did photographing my October wedding. Leslie was responsive and flexible during the planning phase. She was extremely sweet and professional during the wedding; all my guests raved about what a good job she was doing. Leslie somehow managed to remain unobtrusive, though our venue was quite small. Most impressively, she made my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera; something neither of us have ever enjoyed. The turnaround time was remarkably fast for wedding photos, and the results are flawless. From beginning to end, my experience with Leslie was incredible, and I would 100% recommend her to any newly engaged couples.

Leslie is amazing and we cannot recommend her highly enough! Neither of us has had a lot of time in front of a camera because we're homebodies that just like to hang out with our cats, but Leslie helped us feel more comfortable and enjoy ourselves. She took pictures that were stunningly beautiful and still showed the real us! We got previews of our wedding pics in record time, and they're just wow! Along with taking amazing photos- Leslie was a wonderful presence at the wedding! She is very perceptive, and helped wind down family photos when I was getting overwhelmed, and she responded with grace and style to a sassy guest. I can't imagine anyone else being our photographer. She is so talented! We also loved our engagement session with Leslie!

Leslie is an excellent photographer and a wonderful addition to the wedding team. She is warm, attentive, and professional. She photographed for us in color, black and white, and even took some bonus film shots. We had a few specific photos we really wanted to be sure to get - one of me to match photos of my grandmothers on their wedding days and one of us jumping over the broom - Leslie nailed them both. People drop their jaws over the broom jump, perfectly mid-air. She did a wonderful job of capturing the spirit of the space, the reverence of the ceremony and the wildness of the party. She blends wonderfully in with the guests, keeping everyone at ease and capturing them at their best. Her follow-up, too, was impeccable. It is a pleasure to go back and see in her photographs all the moments that I missed in person, and all the moments I'll remember forever.

I loved having Leslie take our wedding pictures. She’s not only a fantastic photographer, but also a wonderful person. Ever since we first got on touch, she’s been helpful, answering (and anticipating!) all our questions. She met all our requests, communicated with us on all the details and was very flexible, even though we booked her only a short time before our wedding day. We decided to elope, because we wanted an intimate ceremony, but we also wanted to document that day for our friends and family. Leslie was being very tactful and kind - giving us privacy when we needed it and all the while making us feel so comfortable we all but forgot about the camera in her hands. Sincerely, it was a joy to have her with us. The pictures she took of us that day turned out beautiful! We’re proud to show them to our friends and family. I can’t compliment enough Leslie’s professionalism and grace. You can tell that she truly enjoys her work and gives her very best. She really cares deeply about her clients.

My husband and I with out a doubt feel that choosing Leslie as our photographer was one of the best wedding desisions we made! Not only is she super sweet and personable, but she's an incredibly talented photographer. We were absolutely blown away by our wedding day photos! She really knows how to capture the special moments of the day and tell a story with her photos. If you're thinking about booking her, just do it! I promise you won't regret it. She's awesome!

What was important to us was that we get photos that captured the stories, the conversations, the interactions of our small intimate wedding. Leslie did just that and more. Our couple photos are incredible, she made us feel comfortable and has such an eye for lighting and angles. I cannot believe how amazing these photos came out, she captured all the right angles and movements and lighting. During the dinner portion she completely captured the "story" whether it be an amazing candid of me hugging my mother in law; or a shot down the table with everyone smiling and laughing and in full conversation. We love that we have plenty of photos that show up close views of us, but also have photos that are more subtle [beautiful but not so staged] wedding photos. It should also be noted that Leslie is great to work with - she was traveling right before our wedding and took time to meet us for coffee, was so responsive in questions prior to our wedding, and got us our photos within a few weeks of our wedding weekend. Just the absolute best.

Leslie is incredibly talented at capturing the ambiance of a moment. We also love how nature-infused and candid her photographs are; her photographs really capture what's happening rather than trying to create contrived moments and poses. Looking back through the photographs really makes us feel like we are reliving our wedding day. Leslie is very professional by being responsive, delivering her pictures on-time, and by checking in with us throughout the year. She is also incredibly kind and fun to have a conversation with. On the day of our wedding, she was not intrusive at all. In fact, she was quite stealthy, moving around in the background and catching all of the moments in between! Leslie is passionate about her work, and really focuses on what matters most: the love between the couple. If you want a photographer who focuses on that and one who does not force contrived moments, Leslie is absolutely the one for you. I could not recommend her more.

 On the day of our wedding, Leslie was an unobtrusive, kind presence every minute of the time she was present at our wedding. She even made me laugh when I was super stressed about getting ready in time. Leslie went out of her way to get the best shot, whether that meant sprinting from one end of the venue to the other or moving a stump to stand on for the best angle; she was truly a ninja in an elegant pantsuit. For our portraits, she just encouraged us to be ourselves and made the process very easy. We are so pleased with how all our pictures look. We had a pretty unusual interfaith ceremony and Leslie was very alert to all the important moments and captured them beautifully.

Leslie is one of the most creative, sweet, genuine and artistic photographers I have ever known, and we were so happy to have her as our wedding photographer! As my husband and I are both artists, we wanted someone who really knew how to capture an unique and beautiful environment and event, and she did exactly so! We are so thrilled with the photos and can't wait to relive our wedding through the photos for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much Leslie!
