love what you see?

San luis obispo wedding photographer
+ destinations throughout california

Over 15 years ago I turned my hobby into my career and I still can't believe how freaking lucky I am to get to meet all of you and capture your love stories. I am so excited to meet you.

I am the type who will go in for a hug and get your whole life story over coffee. I love to connect with my couples, support them and build trust. I am warm, always smiling, and I wear my heart on my sleeve. I also have a silly sense of humor and love to laugh!

I am a die hard romantic and creative, lover of all things floral, stylish and pretty- I love talking about weddings and will talk about them all day long every day! I love hearing about my couples plans for their day.

I'm a cat worshiping lover of 1970's clothing and shoes, horoscope reading connoisseur of cheese. I am obsessed with true crime podcasts, collect vintage cameras and useless kitchen gadgets, and I like to buy houseplants and never water them. 

I care so much about how my couple's enjoy their wedding day and how they will remember it. This work comes from my heart, and there is nothing I love more than to support my couples before, during, and after this amazing day in their lives.

I'm Leana Myra

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. 

My couples FEEL AS IF I AM JUST ANOTHER FRIEND COMING TO
YOUR WEDDING- BUT WITH A VERY SPECIAL JOB TO DO. My goal is to make sure you have the best day ever, and are able to relax and live in the moment.

Years I've been a
WEDDING photographer



MY KIDS + OUR CATS

SCARY MOVIES + HOROSCOPES + AMAZON DELIVERIES

BOOKS + TRUE CRIME docs + vintage cameras

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.

quick facts

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!

-Anne and Jackson

we are obsessed!

I cannot wait to meet you and hear all about your plans for your wedding day.
