  • I can't say enough about how happy we are that we chose Leslie to photograph out wedding. We had an underwhelming experience with our Engagement photographer, and weren't feeling very optimistic about finding a new photographer for the wedding. From the second I spoke to Leslie on the phone, I knew it was a good fit. Not only is Leslie an amazing photographer, but she is super easy to work with and makes you feel comfortable every step of the way. It rained the ENTIRE day of our wedding (not to mention it was freezing cold and windy). The wedding was inside, but we planned to do all of the pictures outside. Our picture plan changed several times on the day of the wedding (because of the weather) and not once did I feel stressed with Leslie in charge of it! Not only did we LOVE our pictures, but Leslie is so fun to work with that we completely forgot how cold, windy, and wet it was. Leslie does an amazing job of capturing the moments of your day. She told us what to do,... Read more

  • Leslie was a joy to work with. She cares about her work and her clients, and it shows in her professionalism and photos! To have had such a small wedding (only 10 guests), Leslie was attentive but didn't interrupt the intimacy of our day. Most importantly, her photos were beautiful and high quality. Everyone has complimented how natural, relaxed, and genuinely happy we looked in the photographs. She made me feel beautiful, and it showed in the final product. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Leslie West Photography. We will cherish our wedding photos for years to come.

  • Leslie was wonderful. She made my husband and I feel super comfortable while she took photos, and she was incredibly flexible with the timing and locations for our wedding. She was also meticulous to ensure each photo we requested was taken. Most importantly, the photos turned out so wonderful and will be a fabulous keepsake.

  • I cannot decide whether Leslie or her photography is more amazing. The second I spoke to her, I felt as if I was reconnecting with a lifetime friend. She was so friendly and seemed equally excited. On my wedding day, she was prepared, professional, and extremely comfortable to be around. My love for her was affirmed when I received my gallery and had my breath taken away. The pictures were out of this world. How did I discover such a gem!? I have received so many compliments on my pictures and I feel so blessed to have found my perfect photographer! Thank you for capturing us and our personalities in such a genuine way.

  • We really enjoyed working with Leslie. She made us feel comfortable each time we worked with her! We picked Leslie because we love her work. Her pictures don't looked forced and we feel she really captured our day perfectly. She does take traditional pictures, but also managed to get great genuine pictures from our day! The day of our wedding went by so quickly, but we have a wonderful chronicle thanks to Leslie!

  • Leslie was amazing. She really made us and our entire family feel comfortable. She did our engagement photos as well as the wedding day. She captured the most amazing day for us and we cannot thank her and her second shooter belly my enough. Thanks again.

  • Our family can't thank Leslie West enough for the great job she did at Emily and Matt's wedding at The Corry House. She was the calm we needed. Her engagement pictures were great and I am sure the wedding pictures will be awesome. I recommend Leslie to be a part of your special day because she will capture your special moments.

  • Leslie was a Wonderful photographer. She was very laid back and helped out in anyway she could. She made all my wedding party feel so comfortable. They now say she is the best photographer they have ever been around. And I Totally agree! She is AMAZING!! It was raining right before our ceremony so Leslie came and discussed different options with me. We both decided to just postpone the wedding 10 minutes and to get married outside rain or shine. As it turned out the rain stopped just as I was about to walk down the isle! The pictures were ABSOLUTELY amazing and everyone loves them! I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. I will Definitely use her again when I need some more pictures taken!

  • Leslie was a wonderful photographer for our wedding. She has a great personality that really makes you feel comfortable when she is taking pictures. If there was a specific picture we wanted, all we had to do was ask and she would take it. She was right there with us getting pictures on the dance floor (even teaching us how to do the wobble!). The shots she shared with us are amazing and we can't wait to see the rest!! She even traveled out of town to photograph our wedding. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

  • Leslie not only takes beautiful photos, but she is an absolute pleasure to work with from beginning to end. We used Leslie for both our engagement photos and wedding photos and are so pleased with how everything turned out. For the engagement shoot, Leslie traveled to us (about two hours from where she is based) at no extra fee and really took her time to make sure that we had a variety of backgrounds, poses, etc. It was also a great time to get to know her and get a feel for how we would all work together at the wedding. At the wedding, Leslie was cool, calm, composed and kept everyone laughing the whole time. Our wedding party and guests loved her and was received 600+ amazing photos of our wedding when all was said and done. Leslie includes a second shooter in her wedding package, which is helpful if there is a time-crunch for getting photos done on the day of the wedding, though I will say that in our case, Leslie was by far the superior photographer of the two. I would ... Read more

    Thanks, Emily! Your wedding was a blast! I've never been around a more warm and loving group of people. I can't stop telling people what an amazing couple you and Dan are. Hope to see you in New York one of these days!

  • As the mother of the bride, who paid for the photography services, I was disappointed in the overall experience with this vendor. We had a contract for 2 photographers, but only Leslie showed up on the wedding day. She quickly explained that the other photographer was sick and she would "work something out with us" later. She has never responded to my request to discuss some type of refund or other compensation. It took 5 weeks, and my daughters prompting to get the photos back. At the price she charged I expected professionalism, but got none.

    This was one of my favorite weddings of the year. Both the bride and the groom became instant friends of mine when we met and I couldn’t wait to photograph their special day. Of course, just like the couple, their family was wonderful and pleasant to work with. At the beginning, I was aware that the MOB would be paying for the photography. I was flexible with her payment requests and responded quickly to her emails. I maintained a good relationship with the MOB throughout the wedding and in the weeks after. A few days after the wedding, I received an email from the MOB. In the email she thanked me for all my hard work and said she loved the photos I had posted on various social media sites. During 2015, I had a photography intern. I hoped to help my intern build a portfolio so that she could start her own business. Every bride was informed there would be two photographers at their wedding, but no bride was charged extra for the service. A few days before the wedding, my intern called to tell me that she had strep throat. When I arrived at the wedding, I informed the couple that I would be working solo for the day. I also mentioned that if they were displeased with my work after they received the final images, that I would be more than happy to offer compensation. In my contract it states that final images take at least 4 weeks to complete. I take pride in hand-selecting and editing each individual photo. This is a very time-consuming process and big part of why my clients love their photos. Most brides are very anxious to receive their photos and I have no problem updating them on their progress, as was the case in this situation. After the final images were delivered, I received an email from the groom: “I'm a firm believer in compensating those for their efforts, and I completely understand that your business is fairly involved time-wise. Make no mistakes that we absolutely love the end product.”

  • Leslie was absolutely fantastic! I'm super picky when it comes to anything artistic (I'm an art teacher).. and the quality of her work totally exceeded my expectations! I rated a 4/5 on responsiveness because I did have to wait several days for email responses sometimes. And I rated a 4.5/5 on quality of service because in retrospect.. there were a few more pictures I would have liked to have taken on my wedding day. The venue was absolutely gorgeous and there were areas we didn't even go to. Overall though I would ABSOLUTELY recommend her. I was so nervous when we first met to take engagement photos and she really helped to calm my nerves and make the process fun!
