Hello! I am Leslie Swan, the East Coast Love Photographer. I specialize in photographing enchanted weddings and modern elopements. I love connecting with people, the high energy of weddings, and capturing moments as they come. Are you unique and want your photographs to reflect that? I think we would work very well together! My goal is for you to feel natural, and comfortable while I create beautiful portraits that embody your connection. I want to show your true spirit, and the genuine emotion of your wedding day. I look forward to helping tell your story!

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€¦ adventurers, unusual wedding/elopement locations, 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

"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. She did a truly phenomenal, professional job and was an absolute delight. I cannot recommend her highly enough." -Wendy

"Leslie is one of the most creative, sweet, genuine and artistic photographers I have ever known, and we were so happy to have her as our wedding photographer! As my husband and I are both artists, we wanted someone who really knew how to capture an unique and beautiful environment and event, and she did exactly so! We are so thrilled with the photos and can't wait to relive our wedding through the photos for the rest of our lives. " -Kellie

"What was important to us was that we get photos that captured the stories, the conversations, the interactions of our small intimate wedding. Leslie did just that and more. Our couple photos are incredible, she made us feel comfortable and has such an eye for lighting and angles. I cannot believe how amazing these photos came out, she captured all the right angles and movements and lighting. During the dinner portion she completely captured the "story" whether it be an amazing candid of me hugging my mother in law; or a shot down the table with everyone smiling and laughing and in full conversation. We love that we have plenty of photos that show up close views of us, but also have photos that are more subtle [beautiful but not so staged] wedding photos. It should also be noted that Leslie is great to work with – she was traveling right before our wedding and took time to meet us for coffee, was so responsive in questions prior to our wedding, and got us our photos within a few weeks of our wedding weekend. Just the absolute best." -Alicia
