legacy worthy photos filled with love and emotion

I'm Leana, wedding photographer for romantic souls

I'm a California based fine art wedding photographer with over 15 years spent capturing love stories and honing my craft. I work with engaged couples who love romance and elegance, who are drawn to colorful and floral designs, and dream of a wedding day filled with relaxed luxury and time with their guests. My work is feminine, dreamy, editorial, with a true-color and film-inspired aesthetic. 
I offer couples personalized and couture packages, built around their vision and needs. My couples are able to fully relive the beauty of their wedding day in magazine worthy, top level images that are unparalleled in their beauty and full of their most precious memories. Taking only a limited number of couples per year, each of my couples receives the attention they need, and I work closely with wedding planners to ensure that my couples investment in their memories is fully realized.

"I examined my own heart and there you were."

Your wedding day shouldn't feel like one big photo shoot. This day should be spent with your guests, enjoying each moment, and truly losing yourself in the happiness and love. I help with gentle guidance and support as needed, and be a fly on the wall the rest of the time.

Pre-planning and working with a creative team is the most important part of what I do. I work closely with your wedding planner to ensure your photography is a seamless and stress-free part of your day.

Photography trends come and go, but wedding photos should be beautiful forever. These are photos are part of your family heirlooms and they should be relevant and timeless today and in twenty years from now.

This video of our day is so much more than we could have dreamed of.. we are so grateful. I am sitting here crying just watching it over and over- I am so grateful Leana helped me see that I wanted a wedding video after all. People warn you the day goes fast- but honestly it FLIES.

Leana is a superstar of wedding photography. She is a cut way above the rest in her area. We looked for a long time before finding her and we are so glad that we were able to find someone of her caliber and expertise to trust with our memories.

Leana helped up feel so comfortable and was a huge support leading up to our day. She was always just a text away and helped us navigate much of our planning even more than our coordinator at times!
