Hi, I'm Leah 

I get to photograph people who love their people, and want to remember for the rest of their lives exactly how that love felt in that moment. So basically, I have the best job ever. With a candid, fun approach to photography  I truly think making people comfortable in front of the camera is my superpower. These moments are meant to be celebrated and reminisced on for years to come, and I would be honored to capture yours!

I cannot say enough great things about working with Leah Dawson! Her professionalism, kind and calm demeanor, and talent were worth every penny! From start to finish - from engagement photos, discussing timeline and vision, to the day of - she was responsive, open to ideas, and organized. Working with her was a true pleasure, and we are so grateful for how she captured our day. The photos are better than we could've ever imagined. If you need a wedding photographer - I can promise you, she's your gal!

Leah was the best decision we made for our wedding. Not only is she an incredible photographer, she is such a joy to work with. I wanted a photographer who was able to catch those candid shots that reflected the love and support we felt from our family and friends. Let me tell you, she nailed it. She was able to capture incredible pictures that told our story and we couldn’t be happier. She is very professional, responsive, flexible, and passionate about the work she does. We experienced rain on our wedding day and she step right in and made adjustments that gave us incredible shots. She also had to put up with my groomsman, it was like herding cattle haha. She handled it all so well. My bridal party LOVED working with her. Honestly, she felt like family! I tell everyone about her. She truly is such a dream to work with!

Leah is so amazing at what she does! For our wedding, we debated whether or not we needed to hire a photographer and videographer to capture the day. We decided to make the investment in Leah and, Honestly, no videographer needed—she perfectly captured the essence of the day. Not only did she make me and my husband feel like freakin models, she got the best candids of us and our guests.

Leah will notice special moments that you probably won’t on your whirlwind day --  it’s so nice to be able to see them after the fact. Hire her!
