Perfect! Leigh and Barry Nelson from Lavendar Leigh Photography were perfect in every way. For starters, they are both very good looking and therefore quite easy to smile at! :) All kidding aside, they are professional, thorough, hard-working, organized, and talented. Leigh was extremely helping in working with me to develop the timeline for the wedding day, and she was an excellent resource to bounce ideas off of. During the Ceremony, Leigh and Barry did a fine job capturing the key moments. Leigh has a great eye for lighting, scenery, and angles. Also, after the formal pictures, she checks her camera to make sure she has a good shot with everyone's eyes open. I can't wait to see the whole suite of photos she and Barry took, but the "previews" I've seen so far are stunning. BOOK LAVENDER LEIGH PHOTOGRAPHY FOR YOUR WEDDING! Five stars!

Leigh Nelson of Lavender Leigh Photography recently photographed our November 8th wedding at St. Malachy’s Church and our reception at the Montour Heights Country Club. Leigh and her husband, Barry were fantastic! They were very professional and organized. Leigh is a talented photographer with a great eye for detail. She beautifully captured the emotion of the day as well as some very special moments between our guests, my husband and me. Leigh helped provide direction for our wedding day with suggestions regarding timelines and photographic moments to consider. Leigh was also great at helping to keep one very nervous bride calm during the pre-wedding photos and with directing our family for post-wedding shots. Leigh and Barry were wonderful to work with and we were very pleased with the beautiful photos of our wedding. I would (and have) recommend them gladly to anyone searching for talented professional photographers.

Leigh was absolutely the best vendor with whom we worked in planning our October wedding. She is the ultimate professional with impeccable customer service. I never had to chase Leigh down (as is so common with other wedding vendors!) -- she was always on top of every detail and is an extremely proactive communicator. It made everything so easy!
In addition to her professional approach to her job, Leigh (and her co-photographer and husband Barry), is so much fun to work with! She is pleasant, creative, inspiring, thoughtful, and consistently goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy. They are a powerful team!
As amazing as Lavender Leigh is in all of these respects, it is her talent that's her true shining star. Leigh has an eye for detail, lighting, texture, and composure with a technical skill to match. It's such a rare combination to find someone so gifted in what they do who is also such a joy to work with... She offers suggestions based on her expertise, but is also flexible and accommodating with all the variances and unexpecteds that a wedding day can bring.
Our wedding photos are absolutely GORGEOUS! Honestly, I can't even tell you how many times someone asked me for the name of the photographer, or commented on how they wished they had known of Lavender Leigh when they got married, so lovely, creative, and unique were the photos. I am just having trouble deciding which ones to frame now, because they are all amazing!
Leigh is wonderful and I would use her again a thousand times to photograph any event!

Leigh and her amazing support staff did such a wonderful job capturing the essence of our wedding -- amazing formal pics and such great "action" photos. They were super accommodating to the "free flow" of the wedding professionally and with personal candor. Everyone involved in the wedding who has seen the pictures has been SOOO IMPRESSED. Incredible work, my whole (now extended) family keeps raving about how wonderful the photos are, and are framed in many a household in our family.

Apart from the event proper, the post-facto retouching and image enhancement is fabulous.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND LAVENDER LEIGH to EVERYONE!!

We loved working with Lavender Leigh Photography, because we didn't have to work! Leigh is an incredible woman; she is creative, energetic, professional, and delivered unbelievable photos for our engagement photos and wedding photos. She made everything completely stress-free for us, which is exactly what you need during the hustle and bustle of the big day. Even my husband admitted that hiring her was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. She is worth every penny, and I would recommend her to any couple for any wedding style. I seriously can't say enough good things about LLP!

I was planning my second marriage (1st wedding) and found Leigh on-line. We planned on holding our wedding outside in a courtyard in downtown Pittsburgh with the reception at Eddie Merlot's afterwards. I had a hard time finding a photographer who would just film the ceremony and reception (I didn't have bridesmaids, etc. and didn't want an entire day of 'traditional' pictures) Leigh offered me an incredibly reasonable rate and within days we had our first meet/greet onsite. She was truly lovely, professional and had some fantastic ideas at how she would approach/film our special day. As we got closer to the date, she even traveled to the site to see exactly where the sun would be at the very time of our ceremony.

Leigh and her husband were on site and set up well before I even arrived. They whisked us around the city courtyard, snapping the most special pictures. Many times, we forgot she was there.

Turnaround for prints was within a short period of time. We LOVED the pictures! She captured so many fabulous moments. I would highly recommend Leigh to everyone!

Leigh and Barry are not only great photographers, they are great people. I do not like taking pictures at all (and the camera doesn't usually like me either) but Leigh kept me on schedule and smiling. All of my pictures came out perfect. She truly captured the magic of the day. Each time I look at the pictures I relive it all over again - and I never thought that would happen. I cannot stress how wonderful my experience was - she's accommodating, not pushy, very thorough, keeps you on schedule but also goes with the flow. Basically whatever you need and however you envision your day to be - she makes happen. I recommend Leigh to everyone I know!

High quality people, high quality job. You can't go wrong with Leigh and Barry!

One thing we did not need to worry about during our wedding was the photography of our special day. Leigh and her husband did a phenomenal job. They listened to our wants and worked that into their magic to make sure we had memorable photos of our wedding along with fun photos as well to capture the moment in its entirely. I have already recommended them to 3 other couples and know they will have no regrets.

Leigh is just absolutely amazing. Her ideas are brilliant and her pictures are gorgeous. We hired her for our engagement pictures and as our wedding photographer. She's very easy to work with because she is just such a sweet person and is so very focused on her clients. I cannot wait to work with her in the future. I highly recommend her for any type of photo session you might want. You will not regret it!

Leigh is such a sweet, nice and organized photographer! I am a very indecisive person and Leigh was amazingly patient and willing to work with us ahead of time to ensure that we had the whole day in order the way that we wanted. Leigh was open to whatever we would suggest and she was great with coming up with ideas for even more fun details. A couple of weeks before our wedding, we decided we didn't want the "first look" and Leigh was great with coming up with a new timeline for our wedding day to reflect these changes.
On the actual day of our wedding, Leigh (and Barry) were capturing all of details and special moments. She made me feel like a celebrity when she was taking some of the bridal photos. At the end of the night before she left, she made sure that it was okay for her to leave and there was nothing else that we wanted photographed.
By the time we returned from our honeymoon, the photographs were ready to view. We could not have been more happy with the way the pictures turned out! All of the pictures looked like they could have been in a wedding magazine! We were so impressed that she was even able to capture some of the quick, fun moments from our wedding (dip kiss at ceremony and a lift spin in our first dance). I would definitely recommend her to anyone that wants amazing wedding memories!
