FAQs

Getting Started:

Do you travel?

Yes. If you want me to lace up my boots and go trekking with you through some jungle somewhere, I’m your girl.

How do I book?

$500 deposit, signed contract, and Bob’s your uncle. I take check or paypal, but you need to account for paypal fees via a fee calculator.

What kind of camera do you use?

Nikon D4.

What kind of lighting do you use?

I’m a bit punk rock when it comes to lighting. I love natural light, but believe that mastery of ALL of the tools of my craft is essential, including off- and on-camera flash. But I’ve lit with such various objects as a handheld closet light from Wal-Mart, Ipads, friends and family holding up their phone LCDs, etc.

Do you have insurance?

Yep. Lots!

Do you offer discounts?

To teachers. I love teachers.

Pinterest:

I do take Pinterest boards to see where your interests lie, but believe that your story should be told through my unique perspective, and not by replicating another photographer’s work.

Where should we do our engagement session? How long does it take?

About an hour and a half, and we can do it wherever! I always recommend doing something that makes you feel happy, in a place that makes you happy. Don’t just pick a place, go on a date. Pick an activity.

 

About Leah:

How long have you been shooting?

5 years I think? I’ve completely lost count. About 200ish weddings.

What inspires you? What are your goals?

Interesting venues inspire me a lot, and unique stories or themes. I want you to relive the taste, touch, smell, and sound of a wedding through my photos. I want you to feel and cry and remember you are beautiful – even if those moments aren’t always happy.

What is your photography style?

I am a leaf in the wind. I calibrate based on your personality, your wedding, and the personality of your venue. My interests in photography vary from very artistic, modern, and geometric to soft and romantic. I go into different stages during the day. I capture REAL moments as they happen rather than recreating anything or doing lots of posing.

What is your shooting style?

If asked, I can be a fly on the wall, but prefer to be able to laugh and have a good time with my clients. I like to bust a move on the dance floor and engage with guests. You get better photos when people are having fun in front of the camera.  I’m told I get all of my referrals because of my 80s hip hop dance skillz. Or maybe it was the polka dance skillz.

 

Getting Your Photos:

Editing?

Every photo is edited to varying levels via Lightroom, with the highest attention paid to portraits of you two and family formals. You get 30 edits after the fact. I am a photoshop wizard.

B/W? Color?

If it’s in B/W and not color, it’s meant to be that way. Aside from that, you get about 15-20% in black and white from most of the wedding, with a large number of black and whites for the reception (unless your reception looks amazing in color)

When are photos delivered?

6 weeks on average. You’ll get an official time to delivery around your wedding date, and lots of updates. You’ll be kept in the loop!

How many photos do I get?

Around 600-700 for a full day wedding.

Do I have rights to print?

We share rights. You can print where you like, but I recommend printing through your gallery link, since I’m calibrated to my lab and I trust their professional quality like no other.

Albums?

I make ’em! Please note that parent albums are smaller versions of the original album, with a few alterations. If you want something different, just ask! Just note that there’s an additional design fee.
