I'm Leila, just a human doing what I love to do. And if I photograph you, I'll make sure you only do what you love to do on your wedding day.
Simply put, have fun if you want great photos. Luckily, I've never lived a day where I didn't have fun. I've been photographing weddings now for over a decade, capturing the most joyful memories for people on one of the happiest days of their lives. This journey teaches me so much about the human experience - how to understand people better, how to find meaning in the littlest moments, and discovering that fun makes those little moments just a touch more magical. No two stories are similar, but the joy? The sheer fun of a day? That's universal and it's what I will seamlessly capture for your wedding.
Having fun while you take them.
A lot of photographers talk about light, but I'm just as passionate about light as I am the shadows.
The shadows bring the emotion, the drama. They show us how the scene feels instead of just how it looks.
Film allows me to keep the detail in both the light and the shadows. It gives your memories the whimsical nostalgia we all love to feel, but provides enough grit to show the real stuff too. The photos become about the depth of feeling in the moments, and it's the perfect medium to show you the complexities of what I see.
