Photos should evoke emotion and cherished memories, never overshadowing the moment itself. By taking a more documentary style approach to your wedding day, my perspective allows you to walk through your gallery as the guest of honor.

Showcasing your personal style is so important. Let's work together to create a mood for the day that is uniquely yours. 

CELEBRATING YOUR LOVE STory

Your wedding day may be one of the few times in your life when your dearest loved ones are gathered together in one place to feast, dance, and celebrate your love story. This fabulous day is just as important to me as it is to you. After months (sometimes years!) of planning, you deserve a photographer that cares about you, your guests, and all the little details that make your day what it is: a celebration. I want you to passionately enjoy all the special moments of your wedding day without thinking twice about your photos.

ADDITIONAL SHOOTING HOURS | TRAVEL

 If you feel like you want additional time added to ANY Packages, it would be a fee of +$450 per hour after the package of your selection. Any locations that exceed 30 miles from Lemont, Il require a travel fee. More information on ‘Travel Fees’ explained in the tab for wedding travel below.


WHAT ARE THE MAIN DIFFERENCES between YOUR PACKAGES?

The hours and photo amount are the biggest differences between packages, but all packages are customizable and can include many different additions to fit your exact needs. ! What I have on my website are the most common variations I've noticed among my couples - so they can be a great starting point or "the perfect fit"!  Let's talk more about it over a consultation call. Just submit an inquiry through my contact form.

BUT LEAH, WHAT IS a storyteller engagement shoot Upgrade?

The Storyteller Package offers the flexibility of choosing between two locations and two unique looks. Upgrading to this engagement package provides the luxury of a deeper collaboration, allowing us to dedicate time to plan outfits, conceptualize room aesthetics, and create a storyboard during our discovery call.
 
Additionally, the storyteller package includes a $50 prop allowance. This allows me to purchase items such as flowers, painting supplies, retro stools, pancake mix, and other elements that enhance the narrative, providing a richer portrayal of your current life story if we felt it needed it! 
 

WHAT ABOUT TIMING? WHEN SHOULD WE START SHOOTING? 

It truly is different for everyone which is why we schedule a timeline call about 2 months before the wedding to talk about all the details of the day. Some couples want me to be there late in the night, while others want more photos of them getting ready in the early morning. We work it out to fit your specific needs and schedule best, but generally 12pm-8pm is a good range for The Gather Package and 10am-8pm is a good range for The Complete Package. 

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS? 

You would be responsible for all travel that exceeds 30 miles from lemont, Il + any parking expenses. there is a $50 fee for every 30 miles traveled. ex: 30-55mi fee is $50 (Chicago falls under this milage fee) and 55-80mi is $100, and so on. i don't mind flying either! In that case, you would be responsible for covering cost of all airfare and vehicle rental expenses and 2 night stay at a hotel. Rental car will not be required if stying on site at a resort of chateau.

CAN I DO A FIRST LOOK?  

depending on the overall schedule, First looks can be very helpful for a natural and effortless flow for the day. They work best if the ceremony and reception are at the same location so can take majority of portraits before the ceremony begins and have a seamless and enjoyable transition into cocktail hour and the reception that follows. We will set up a meeting 60-30 days prior to the day of the event to go over all the timeline details.

“these photos are beloved memories"

"There are not enough words to praise the art that Leah creates. I'm someone who has always felt self conscious in photos, but Leah makes you feel comfortable and sometimes you forget she's taking photos. 

I always knew Leah would be my wedding photographer, even before I was engaged.

These photos are memories I will cherish the rest of my life and I am so glad my husband and I chose Leah help us represent such an important milestone."

Billy + Sydney

“my favorite style of photography" 

"I was fortunate to cross paths with Leah earlier in 2023, and coincidentally, her style was exactly my favorite type of photography. It's raw, genuine, classy, soft, and full of real love.

Our photoshoot together was effortless and enjoyable. I highly recommend Leah."

"I find myself looking at my gallery every other day, and I'm still left speechless!

Leah really knows how to capture the magic of the moment and turn the images into a story. Such a talented photographer. 

It was a pleasure to have her take my maternity photos, and I hope to work with her again as our family continues to grow."

“her work is
truly
so remarkable" 

"Words don't do it justice! Leah truly has such a gift that I am so lucky to have experienced. The overall shoot was incredible for my fiance and I. 

She made us feel so comfortable and confident and provided so much direction, which I loved. 

The artistry in her work is truly remarkable and she couldn't have executed our vision better."
