Hello! I am Leslie Swan. I specialize in photographing enchanted weddings and magical portraits. Being a photographer is what I was meant to do. I love connecting with people, the high energy of weddings, and capturing moments that make hearts swoon. I work with beautiful people who are romantic, unique, spunky, and want their photographs to capture their true spirit. I love meeting couples in love! Each couple has a unique story, and it's my job to share it.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I embrace the unique desires of each couple. Everyone has a right to be who they are. Come one, come all! I especially loveā€¦ outdoor weddings, tattoos, purple hair, and care free attitudes.

"WE ARE SO HAPPY TO HAVE CHOSEN HER IN PART DUE TO HER ENERGY AND PERSONALITY, AS WITH SUCH A TINY CEREMONY SHE REALLY BECAME A PART OF IT! WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE MEMORY OF FEELING SO COMFORTABLE AND AT EASE WITH HER AND HAVING SO MUCH FUN. I CANNOT RECOMMEND LESLIE HIGHER! SHE IS THE BEST."
-HEALEY

"I RECOMMEND THIS PHOTOGRAPHER WITH ALL MY HEART. SHE IS A TRUE ARTIST. HER PHOTOGRAPHS ARE LIKE PAINTINGS – THOUGHTFULLY COMPOSED, BEAUTIFULLY CAPTURED, VIBRANT."
– SARAH

"LESLIE WAS AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO WORK WITH.OUR WEDDING WAS SOMEWHAT UNCONVENTIONAL AND AT A CAMPGROUND, AND SHE REALLY CAPTURED THE ESSENCE OF THE PLACE AND THE FEEL OF THE DAY. I LOVE LOOKING AT THE PICTURES; THEY FEEL SO VERY US."
-WENDY

"I CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT WHAT A WONDERFUL JOB LESLIE DID PHOTOGRAPHING MY OCTOBER WEDDING…LESLIE SOMEHOW MANAGED TO REMAIN UNOBTRUSIVE, THOUGH OUR VENUE WAS QUITE SMALL. MOST IMPRESSIVELY, SHE MADE MY HUSBAND AND I FEEL COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA; SOMETHING NEITHER OF US HAVE EVER ENJOYED. THE TURNAROUND TIME WAS REMARKABLY FAST FOR WEDDING PHOTOS, AND THE RESULTS ARE FLAWLESS. FROM BEGINNING TO END, MY EXPERIENCE WITH LESLIE WAS INCREDIBLE, AND I WOULD 100% RECOMMEND HER TO ANY NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES."
– DANIELLE

"LESLIE IS AN AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER, AND WONDERFUL HUMAN BEING. SHE CAPTURED SO MANY PERFECT CANDID MOMENTS THROUGHOUT THE DAY WITH NINJA-LIKE STEALTH. SHE WAS INVISIBLE MOST OF THE DAY, EXCEPT WHEN IT CAME TIME TO WRANGLE THE FAMILIES FOR GROUP SHOTS, AT WHICH POINT SHE TOOK CHARGE WITH CONFIDENCE AND A FUN ATTITUDE. EVERYTHING WENT SMOOTHLY, AND IT WAS A JOY TO HAVE HER AT THE WEDDING."
