my approach

Think of these images as you personal time machine to look back on years later when your hair is grey and your faces are filled with wrinkles. Heirlooms to pass down long past our time on earth.

more about ME 

I am not here to run your big day, photos are not everything. I refuse to add to the preconceived expectations already put on weddings. I am here to simply observe and document the things you didn't know were happening because you were too busy being in the moment. To produce images that show you how much you two are loved. To freeze this moment in space.

After 12 years of being at weddings every weekend I have found that this approach to photography shakes me to my core.  As for me I am a total empath, addicted to capturing every emotion know to man, and drink a bit too much coffee.

Emotion led Moments 
Impactful Observations 

Marissa & Wyatt

Both my husband and myself felt so at ease with Leanne and loved her laid back shooting style. She  did an impeccable job at capturing the real candid moments throughout the day and night, never putting her camera down and always on the lookout for authentic emotion or the perfect light. The way she sees the world through her camera lens is even better than reality.

"She has a way of directing without actually posing anything".

don't just take it from me

Sophia & Colin

We cannot recommend Leanne enough. She was my favorite vendor I hired for my wedding by far. From the very start she made the whole process relaxed, comfortable and FUN! She captures real moments in a beautiful way. We are forever grateful. Do not think twice about hiring her!

Hana & Nick

We weren’t from the Finger Lakes area but did an intimate elopement style wedding at an Airbnb on Seneca Lake and found Leanne through Google! We wanted natural, unposed, candid photos of our time and it was everything we wanted and more!! 

"She gave direction when needed but mostly we were able to just live in the moment."

Morgan & Jordan

Leanne was a dream to work with for our wedding and rehearsal dinner.  She managed to get the photojournalistic photos we wanted and truly captured the love. She was also chill and easy to work with. Would highly recommend!
