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.
