What your day
means to me

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 you and your honey’s love. 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. This is what you have been waiting for, this is your day to enjoy it ALL!

Let’s talk about money,

Is there anything more spontaneous than a disposable camera?

I’ll collect the cameras before I leave and get those fun pics developed for you. No stress on your part!

+ $150 for 75-80 developed photos

Disposable bundle

ADDITIONAL SHOOTING HOURS | TRAVEL

 If you feel like you want additional time added to ANY Packages , it would be a fee of +$250 per hour after the package of your selection. Any locations that exceed 45 minutes from Lockport, IL require a travel fee. More information on ‘Travel Fees’ explained in the FAQ section below.


WHAT ARE THE MAIN DIFFERENCES between YOUR PACKAGES?

Great question! The Gather Package offers a complimentary engagement session, 8 hours of coverage (from the start time that we decide on), and a second photographer. Like the Gather, The Complete Package offers a complimentary engagement session and a second photographer, but in addition offers 2 more hours of photo coverage (10 hours of coverage from the start time we decide on) and your choice of a bridal shower shoot or a wedding adventure shoot.

BUT LEAH, WHAT IS AN ADVENTURE SHOOT?  

Well friend, sometimes couples choose to get married in their hometowns because it’s close for more people to attend the big day…myself included. However, that doesn’t mean those adventurous souls don’t want to take some photos in the mountains or on the beach to celebrate this milestone in their life! For an adventure wedding shoot, you can expect to dress up in either your wedding dress or another dress of choice within the first year of you being married and take your love to greater heights! This is a great option for couples who may have wanted to elope, aren’t afraid of getting a little dirty, like to travel, camp, hike, boat, or just enjoy all nature has to offer. It’s a great way to celebrate your first year of marriage and relive all those mushy gushy memories from your wedding day in a relaxed way.

WHAT can I expect for BRIDAL Shower coverage?

You can expect me to be there for your bridal shower to get photos of family, friends, decorations, and all those details that are too cute to not take photos of. About 2 hours of coverage from the start time we decide on. 

WHAT ABOUT TIMING? WHEN SHOULD WE START SHOOTING? 

It truly is different for everyone which is why we schedule a time to meet 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 with their girlfriends at 10am. 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? 

 Hey, I don’t mind flying! Let’s do it! In that case, you would be responsible for covering the cost of flights there and back, hotel for 2 nights, and rental car. You would be responsible for all travel that exceeds 45 minutes from my current location of Lockport, IL. A $20 travel fee is required for any locations 45-60 minutes away and anything that exceeds 1 hour will be an additional $15 per hour. Example: 1.5 hours away will be +$35 in addition to your package. Anything that exceeds 3 hours will require lodging at a hotel within 30 minutes of venue. Chicago is about a 45-60 minute drive from my house and would be $20 + any parking expenses.

CAN I DO A FIRST LOOK?  

Honey, you can do whatever you want as long as I know about it before the day. First looks are great if the ceremony and reception at the same location so you can take photos with your wedding party before the ceremony begins and have a seamless transition to 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 details and your list of “need to have photos”.

" I highly recommend Leah for any photos you need done "

"Leah did our engagement photos and our wedding photos and we absolutely love how they turned out! She was so sweet and we had so much fun with her! We are so pleased with our photos. I highly recommend Leah for any photos you need done. Can’t wait to use her in the future for other photos!!"

She has a natural talent for photography. She was amazing to work with and multiple people from the bridal party stated how sweet she was. We will be utilizing Leah to capture many more special moments in our life!"

“ She made us feel so comfortable "

"Leah is DREAM to work with!! Not only did she take the most insane engagement photos, she made my fiancé and I both so comfortable the entire time. We both are a little awkward and shy in front of a camera, but Leah made us feel so comfortable and lead us (& hyped us up) the entire time. Her communication was amazing and she asked great questions to help us decide the vibe we wanted to go for. I seriously was blown away by the final images! They were better than anything I could have imagined."
