You need a photographer you can trust completely to capture one of the best days of your life.

I know how important this day is and what it means to you. It will be full of all the people you love most celebrating YOU. So many laughs, happy tears, kisses- maybe grandma even gets on the dance floor for the very first time. 

In a decade, a day, a month after your wedding, there will be so much excitement pinned on having gotten the photos that mean the most to you. That's what I am here for- I have you covered before, during, and after your wedding, from the day we meet- I am invested in you.

I'm leana
and i love to laugh!

Based out of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara, I have been shooting weddings for well over a decade. I specialize in vineyard and outdoor weddings in a light and airy style reminiscent of film photography. I love to connect with and get to know my couples, learning about their vision and who they are as couple, and bringing their dreams to life.

Just like me my work is warm, full of joy, laughter, and fun. I'm down to earth, super friendly, love creativity and style and capturing those candid moments that mean the most to you.

I am all about making sure you get to fully enjoy your wedding day- no stress, no worries- only happiness. It's your best day ever and it's so important to me you have the most amazing memories to cherish.

My wife and I are camera shy, but she made it so much fun. We love our pictures and got so many compliments. She helped us know what to do to look our best.

we will treasure these photos the rest of our lives...

I create images that will stand the test of time, using true-to life colors and natural light. My style is all about the story, the emotions, and the celebration of your wedding- all those moments big and small you want to look back on together. 

I am fun loving, down to earth, organized and reliable. My role is to guide you through the process as an incredibly experienced professional and as a trusted friend. Like the song says "when you need me, I'll be there."

True colors
Free Spirited

If we could give leana a thousand stars we would. She was so helpful every step of the way, even before our actual wedding day. Every time we reached out, she got right back to us. That really put us at ease and helped so much with our stress planning a wedding from another state. Our photos are amazing- we will treasure them always.
