...& leave behind the photos that best tell your story.

I like to mix my passion for photography and design. Words like composition, color, and juxtaposition have become staples in my design vocabulary. Both pursuits keep me continuously inspired. When combined, my eye for design powerfully tells your narrative through bright, classy, candid photos.

Leigh Ann made the whole experience fun and easy! And now looking at the photos she’s shared, it’s impossible to find just 1 profile picture to post because I love every single picture she took! When looking at the pictures, My husband even said, “I didn’t know I could look so good! Leigh Ann took the best day of our lives and captured it in such a special, classic, elegant and beautiful way. She was worth every single penny we invested in her and if we’re ever in the DC area again and need professional photos, she will be the one we call. 5 out of 5 stars, we would recommend to everyone!

"she was amazingly 

Fort Belvoir Wedding

When it came to the big day, Leigh Ann put myself and my bridal party at ease and took AMAZING photographs. My bridal party commented on how efficient she was - we got EVERY shot covered while still allowing for everybody to enjoy the cocktail hour! Better yet, before dinner was done, Leigh Ann had compiled a preview of a few of her favorite photos to share around on an iPad - the guests LOVED this. She even had cards to hand out that showed the guests where the photos could be found once they were uploaded. And, get this - all of my photos were done and uploaded before I even returned from my honeymoon. I couldn't more highly recommend her for all of your engagement and wedding photography needs. 

Leigh Ann was recommended by a friend to us and she was absolutely wonderful to work with all the way around. She is professional, prompt, joyful, helpful, and flexible.Leigh Ann was easy and flexible to work with for the big day, she was ready for us for all the steps throughout the day. Her thoughtful touch on everything was thoroughly appreciated and her joyful presence was also great to have around and helped us feel right at home. We are very, very, very glad we worked with Leigh Ann for our wedding and would highly recommend her (our family and friends appreciated her as well).

Leigh Ann did an amazing job providing photography services for our wedding this past October. The value was amazing- she included an engagement session and took a huge amount of photos at the wedding. Once the wedding was over, the photos came back super fast and looked amazing! Also, Leigh Ann was very flexible and had great communication throughout the whole process. She was always 100% positive and it brought up my spirits on the stressful day of our wedding. I would highly recommend her services.

My fiancé and I are still in awe of the incredible photos Leigh Ann took for our engagement session. Not only are the photos everything we could have hoped for and more, but Leigh Ann was also wonderful throughout the photo shoot, making us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Leigh Ann has an exceptional eye for photography, and we are very grateful she captured these moments for us.

these forever!"

She made me feel beautiful. Her quality pictures show that she puts effort and thought into everything. Throughout our entire wedding, I knew where she was if I needed her, but never felt like she was intruding or imposing. Our home is now covered with photos to an almost laughable point because she had so many shots that made us go "WOW! I remember that and it was so fun! That is such a good shot!" All of my guests continue to rave about her because nobody felt like she was intruding in any way, but she still somehow got these incredible shots!

My husband and I couldn't be happier with our experience with Leigh Ann! She was an expert at calming our nerves and made us feel natural during our photos. She captured every second of our wedding that I could have hoped for, especially every detail of our first look!
