"You're Simply The Best!" - Patrick Brewer
Pop that bubbly cause I'm guessing you're here because you're engaged! Yaaaay!! Time to celebrate!!
I am not just a one + done deal - I am here throughout your whole wedding process + help with all the things! From finding your perfect vendors, scouting the best locations, creating timelines that work for you + spending countless hours to help + serve YOU so that your day is as perfect as you have ever dreamt!
On your wedding day, I don't just show up + take some pretty photos. From pinning boutonnières, to picking bugs out of dresses on hot summer days, carrying dress trains + fixing veils, stealing snacks from cocktail hour because my couples are starving during pictures + making sure you get alone time with your boo before the reception party starts. I will steal you away during the reception to capture those dreamy sunset photos + I will join you on the dance floor. I am more than just your wedding photographer - I am your friend.
I capture you as who you are + no, you aren't as awkward as you think you are. You will have photos that aren't posed + staged. Instead, you'll get a gallery of you + your babe looking like yourselves. Crazy right?! I welcome all couples from all ethnicities + members of the amazing LGBTQ+ communities!
LEESA IS THE BEST!!
"Leesa did a fantastic job on the happiest day of our lives! She is fun to work with + is so talented!"
Cathy + Michael
I CRIED SUCH HAPPY TEARS!
The photos were exactly what we wanted - they really captured the memories + emotions of the day. Making a new friend AND have these amazing memories of our engagement + our wedding is a double whammy I didn’t expect but am SO grateful for. What other photographer would tell you how to pose one day, then binge watch drag race with you on another?!

A Dream Come True!
Leesa made our first photoshoot as a couple a dream come true. Neither of us have never done a professional photoshoot but Leesa made us feel very comfortable. She made us laugh throughout our photoshoot which captured our true smiles. Even though it was a rainy day, our photos turned out incredible + we are so thankful for the hard work that went into our photos!
Heather + David
This Girl is the Epitome
Leesa captured every special moment in such an incredible way. Despite the circumstances + heartache of 2020, Leesa captured the happiest moments + emotions from everyone that day. She helped me with literally everything... + I mean everything. If I had any questions or concerns, + when my makeup artist cancelled a week before the big day... she had a solution. She is so kind + made us feel like we were besties! It doesn't matter if you haven't posed in front of the camera before, Leesa's got you! Not only that, she'll make you feel so comfortable that each photo she captures looks so natural + incredible!

Our Wedding Photos are Beautiful!
Leesa is very easy going + understood all our wedding needs. She is organized + quick to respond with answers to our questions as our wedding day approached. We love our photos so much + can't wait to work with her again!

How long does it take to get my photos?
It is all dependant on the season. During the winter months, I usually can have your images ready within a month after your wedding date. Typically during the peak wedding season, spring to fall, it takes about 2-3 months for your images to be completed due to the high demand. You will receive your images via an online gallery where you can download and share directly with your family and friends.
Will I get all the images taken at my wedding?
No. I spend quality time going through your wedding day images removing any images that I do not feel are up to my standards of professional quality. I can assure you, you will only receive the best images.
Do you charge a travel fee?
Travel is included in all my packages! If your wedding is 2 hours outside of Ottawa, you will be considered a "destination" wedding. Please inquire for more details.
How much coverage do you recommend?
I want to tell your wedding story, not just bits and pieces of it. Ideally, I recommend anywhere from 8-10 hours of wedding coverage in order to make this possible. At bare minimum, I always recommend having at least 1 hour at the end of the getting ready process & 1 hour into party time to make sure the full day is captured.
What is your favourite part of being a photographer?
My favourite part is meeting you & creating memories that you will cherish for a lifetime! I love meeting new people, making new friends & hope that after your wedding, we continue to be friends!
How far in advance should we book?
Typically couples book approximately 1 year in advance, but it does vary. If you are hoping for a specific season or date, make sure to book well in advance so I don't leave you disappointed!
Planning a Destination Wedding?
I would love to be apart of your destination wedding! I love to travel and would love to photograph your amazing day where ever it may be! I will travel anywhere your heart calls.
