Leyla and her team worked so hard to capture the spirit of our event. They felt like part of my bridal party! It rained for our wedding, but that didn't stop Leyla and Syndi. When the rain cleared, they made sure to get us outside to catch the sunset. When the moon came out, they made sure to capture our magical night by moonlight. They were with us through and through. Nothing got by them!

through and through.

The wedding experience with leyla

YOUR WEDDING DAY IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DAYS OF YOUR LIFE. This is months and months of planning, decision making, styling, preparing, building, and showcasing one of the first things you've built together, as a couple. Let me create a custom collection that fits your needs so you can focus on the rest. If you are looking for someone to document your wedding unobtrusively, with an artistic eye and storytelling touch, I would love to be considered. My biggest passion is being able to capture the little details, the emotional exchanges between guests and family members, and things that I catch glimpses of as your wedding story unfolds.  These are the things you might miss, and it's my job to catch them.
