candid moments full of joy 
and timeless romance

As your wedding photographer I will be there for one of the most emotional and important days of your life, it's so important to me you feel comfortable. I help every-day couples, even camera shy ones, take amazing photos by giving direction and support, and knowing when to step back and allow your best moments to unfold. 

I strive to tell the story of who you are, what makes your love so special, and I carefully help you create a day that resonates with your dreams. With over 15 years as a wedding photographer and hundreds of days captured, you can rely upon me to give you candid and beautiful images full of meaning and memory, to treasure for all time.

Meet Leana

photographer + Videographer

Most couples are searching for wedding photos as joyful as the day he asked you to marry him and as soft as a tenderly whispered “I love you.” But did you know that, with the right photographer, beautiful photos aren’t the only thing you’ll receive?

You can have an effortless, stress-melting experience, too!

By revolutionizing the way couples flow through the planning process, I smooth speed bumps and make preparation a breeze. From the detailed wedding day photography timeline we create during your consultation to the way I collaborate with your planner, I concentrate on the tough stuff so you can simply enjoy the ride. For over 15 years I have been helping couples have the wedding day of their dreams and the pictures to prove it.

"Leana captured our day perfectly"

OUR WEDDING PHOTOS ARE UNREAL! THEY ARE WHIMSICAL, STUNNING AND TRULY CAPTURE OUR LOVE.

"We are SO so thrilled with our images!"

WORKING WITH LEANA IS AN ABSOLUTE DREAM. SHE GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND--NOT JUST WITH HER PHOTOGRAPHY, BUT ALSO WITH GETTING TO KNOW YOU AS A COUPLE. SHE IS APPROACHABLE AND RESPONDS VERY QUICKLY!

HER PHOTOS ARE BREATHTAKING--FULL OF JOY AND MOVEMENT. SHE GOT US OUR FIRST 200 EDITED PHOTOS WITHIN A FEW DAYS OF OUR WEDDING. HIRE HER!!


Rachel + Spencer

"She felt like a trusted friend!"

SHE WAS SO INVESTED IN EVERYTHING ALONG THE WAY, FROM HELPING ME PICK OUT OUTFITS FOR OUR ENGAGEMENT SHOOT TO THE TIMELINE FOR THE WEDDING.

WE INTERVIEWED SEVERAL OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS, BUT NO ONE FELT AS WARM, GENUINE OR AS ENTHUSIASTIC AS LEANA. IT FELT LIKE A FRIEND WAS THERE TAKING OUR PICTURES, NOT JUST A VENDOR.
