COUPLES SAY I HAVE A CALMING, SUPPORTIVE ENERGY- I AM VERY ORGANIZED AND HELPFUL AT KEEPING THINGS ON TRACK.
depending on what is happening, I will guide
things in order to get the best shots or step back
and allow events to happen organically.
I interact with guests, MINGLING AND CHATTING, ASKING them to pose for PICTURES AND CAPTURING ALL THE important candid MOMENTS OF THE DAY- even the ones you didn't notice. with my years of EXPERIENCE, I know to ANTICIPATE
moments before they happen.
DEVELOPING A MInI FRIENDSHIP WITH YOU IS ALSO
IMPORTANT TO ME- IT HELPS HELPS YOU BE MORE
RELAXED ABOUT HAVING ME THERE ON YOUR DAY.
I want you TO FEEL AS IF I AM JUST ANOTHER FRIEND COMING TO
YOUR WEDDING- BUT WITH A VERY SPECIAL JOB TO DO.
After so many years shooting weddings, my experience and knowledge of how events flow and timelines work, my connections with other wedding vendors on the central coast, and my experience working at venues of every size and type makes me able to deliver consistently beautiful work in any situation.
I have been the recipient of Wedding Wires "Best Of" awards years in a row, have had my weddings published on countless online and print wedding publications, and several well known venues use my photos for their websites. I am very well known in the community and have a network of amazing second shooters at my disposal.
I am a combination of creativity in the craft, skilled in the mechanics, directional in the posing, organized in the schedule, laid back in the approach, and fun in the experience. Of course, there is no perfect photographer but I strive to give my couples the best experience possible each and every time.
My style is warm, natural, joyful, and overwhelmingly people focused. I am one of the most experienced photographers in the area and my couple's can relax knowing I have their day covered.
We are so in love with the photos, you are truly incredible! As two people who are camera shy and have never taken pictures together like this before, we are amazed at how fun and easy it was. I have never liked myself in photos until now, Leana. You really made me love having my picture taken!
You managed to capture so many emotional moments and given us the gift of being able to relive these moments again and again.
You are my amazing wedding photographer angel and everyone loved you- we cannot thank you enough!
