AboutHi, I'm Leah and I can't wait to meet you!


  • Here are some honest things about myself:
    I say old lady things like gosh and golly. I always give away a good hide and seek spot because I can’t stop giggling. I will stop and pat every animal on the street, and then feel sorry for it on the off chance that it might be homeless. And I once fell off my camp chair at a photography workshop, in-front of some seriously amazing photographers…

    The best words of wisdom, ever: ‘put your big girl underpants on and get over it‘. And that is pretty much it for me. Now I want to know all about you!


  • A few words people have used to describe my style are: soft, warm, romantic and natural. I think I will let you decide for yourself.

    My aim as a photographer, since I spend most of your wedding day with you, is not only to provide you with beautiful photographs, but to be relaxed, blend-in, and most of all, ensure that the photography part of your day is remembered as being enjoyed by absolutely everyone at your wedding.

Leah + Nelson

“Just got your email! We are all speechless over these photos. They are beyond amazing and so perfect in their own way. We appreciate your talent and time so much. We are so beyond happy with the amount of photos as well…. of absolutely every slight detail that we may have not even seen on the day. Has bought us straight back and we can’t wait to look at them forever.  I wish we could get married every year just so we can get you to take the photos! But I love following you on your social media’s and seeing the beautiful work you do. There is a reason you are so popular!  Best wishes for the year ahead and I hope you had a relaxing time off over the Christmas, New year break. Regards, Leah & Nelson”

Lauren + Ben

“Leah, we are absolutely swooning over our wedding photos – they are absolutely beautiful. We can not thank you enough for capturing our day so perfectly. Our photos are perfect keepsakes for us to relive our day. From the moment we met you we felt at ease which made our day the most relaxing and enjoyable time. Thank you,️ Ben and Lauren”

Danni + Peter

“Hi Leah, Just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I have been following your work for a very long time and knew your name was the only name we would ever consider to photograph our big day. What we didn’t know at the time when we officially “booked you in” was how beautiful these photos would actually be and I really can’t quite articulate how in love we are with these pics. I have thought back on our wedding day so often and I really can’t thankyou enough for capturing our day in the way that you have to be even more beautiful than we actually remember the day.
Would you believe the photos arrived on my birthday and it truly was the best present anyone could have ever given me!! It took every fibre of my being not to open them before I saw Pete that night. Known in my family as someone you can’t leave the Christmas presents alone with, you have no idea how hard it was to not open your email. From the initial photo until the very end, Peter and I both had big, fat, happy tears rolling down our faces.  Since sharing your pics with family and friend’s, we have been told over and over that “these are the best wedding photos we’ve ever seen”..biased, of course we totally agree.
Thankyou for your professionalism, thankyou for your experience, thankyou thankyou again and again for capturing our day so effortlessly and beautifully.
We really can’t thankyou enough..Danni and Pete xx”

Heidi + Joel

“Hey Leah! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! First of all I wanted to say thank you so much, from the bottom of our hearts. You probably hear this all the time so it’s hard to just fully express how blown away we are with the photos, the emotion and how raw and beautiful they are – honestly it’s so very special and we are so appreciative that you’ve captured the most important things in our lives, the very essence of us, in the most candid and heart felt way. These photos will mean so much to us for the rest of our lives so truly, thank you so much for blessing us with your talent!!!!!THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU so much again – honestly you’re so amazing and I wish I could give you a massive hug over email. I can’t say it enough.
Heidi xx”

“Hi Leah, we received the USB.
I just wanted to thank you again for going above and beyond. We are so so happy with what you have done. Every time I look at the photos I get so happy I could cry!
We have had so many comments from people telling us how beautiful the photos are and saying how you’ve done a great job of capturing us!
I cannot wait to share our special day with you.”

Kirsten + Tim 

“Leah, you are incredible! Tim and I have been blown away by your work. We had expected something above ordinary (that’s why we choose you as our wedding photographer) but WOW! Your personality and style are evident throughout your work and each photo has truly captured the magic of our special day. You have such an easy going, pleasant nature and discreet professionalism; we were continually surprised by photos we didn’t even know you had taken. You made us both feel so comfortable in front of the camera and your willingness to brave the elements to capture enchanting shots, was above and beyond anything we could have asked for. Our praise for your talent has been echoed by all our friends and family, who have noted not just your incredible photographs but your lovely personality as well :).  Thank you for the beautiful slideshow and gallery (and prints to come), it’s such a pleasant surprise and we can’t wait to hang up some of your work on our walls.
Keep up your amazing work! Love Kirsten & Tim xx”
