Some of my best memories ever have been traveling alone abroad and living out of a duffle bag + airport snacks. I truly live for that nervous, giddy feeling in your stomach when flying to a new place.

I take on a limited amount of destination weddings each year, and below is my travel schedule as well as some places on my travel bucket list that I offer discounts to if you are planning on getting married there! Please don't hesitate to reach out and say HEY to inquire about your dreamy couples session, elopement or wedding. 

Although I am based in the beautiful PNW, I have a HUGE heart for traveling.

Leah is AMAZING! We flew in from out of state to elope, which was exciting but left some details up in the air. Our friends found Leah on Instagram, and it turned out to be the best find! Leah was super helpful in taking our ideas and guiding us towards decisions that turned out better than we ever could have imagined! We had a great experience, and our photos exceeded all expectations. The spot Leah scoped out for ourceremony and photos was breathtaking. If I could give her infinite stars, I would. Thanks, Leah, for making our day so memorable!

Organized, punctual, professional, reassuring, personable, communicative, and honest are just a few words to describe Leah Dawson Photography. My husband and I are beyond grateful to have found her on Instagram for our October 2020 wedding. Leah is an excellent sounding board for any wedding concerns and mishaps. She went above and beyond as our photographer. She met with us before the wedding to check in, get to know one another, and talk wedding details. She is easy to connect with, and has the most welcoming personality you will ever meet. These were important pictures for us, and we felt comfortable, and excited to work with Leah.

Leah is SO SO good at what she does. This girl has a very special gift in knowing how to make people comfortable in front of the camera, and taking the most amazing photos. I am beyond grateful for the pictures she captured of my boyfriend and I. If you're looking for a silly, sweet, and talented photographer.. Leah is your girl!!

My husband and I booked Leah literally 2 months before our wedding and didn’t have a set date until ONE month before, and she was GAME for it the whole time. She is literally SO flexible, personable, unbelievably talented... oh, and I feel like she doubled as a wedding planner, lol! Leah has the best style, and she made me and my husband (we are peak awkward) feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She is so fun, so patient, so knowledgeable, and she was our HYPE GIRL. Not only did she make our day so special, but we are in LOVE with our photos. We can’t wait to show our children the love that Leah captured on our day. We love you, Leah! 💛
