Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
You name it, and I'll do it.
 So yes, I'm experienced with all kind of lighting situations. :)

I dedicate the whole day for you and you only.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Cameras, lenses, cables, batteries, light stands, filters, gels, and lots of others stuff. :)
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes of course. It's a must.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Why charge a full day if you only want a four hour wedding? My packages are based on the coverage hours.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Please contact me. :)
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Since I will be working from early in the day, from the getting ready, until the end of the night, I do require a meal break. I do need to refuel myself to keep my energy running.

You will see the proof from the comfort of your own home (or work) through online proof.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
It's usually long enough for 99.9999% of the couples. 
 I keep them for a few months. 
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yup.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Oui.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Si.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Modern and beautiful flush mount albums, which usually impress a lot of people including your own family and friends. :)
When will the client get the final album?
It depends on how fast you choose the images from the online proof. Although, it can be as fast as 3 months after you choose your favorite images, it will typically take about 6 months. It also depends on the album cover type you choose.

We really enjoyed working with Leo for our engagement and wedding photography. After comparison shopping among several recommended photographers in the area, we felt Leo offered the best value with high quality photos. He was the perfect wedding photographer because he and his assistant were able to capture all our key wedding moments but were never "in our face" or were in the way of our actual wedding which was really important to us. Leo has a calm, quiet demeanor which is great for wedding photography. He delivered our proofs in photos within reasonable time frames and we just recently received our album which is amazing.

Leo photographed our wedding in October. He was wonderful.

We did our engagement photos in spring 2013. He was flexible to travel to DC and visit a couple sites we selected. The photos were beautiful. And he was flexible with the package we'd selected to ensure we got what we wanted.

Leo arrived on time for the wedding day and captured our day beautifully. His style of photo journalism captures the story in the pictures without being intrusive. We did some posed photos, but loved all his candid photos the most. Looking at our album, we laugh and cry remembering all the best points.

Leo is also a great guy. When photographing a dance circle and the bottle landed on him, he jumped in with some terrific moves- my guests loved it. We searched long and hard for a photographer- wanting wonderful photos, but not to spend a million dollars. We were so lucky to find Leo, I would pick him again in a second. I highly recommend to others!

Thank God for Leo! His work speaks for itself: natural, unaffected, elegant, emotional, and stunning. We were planning our wedding from out of town and had limited time to meet potential photographers. Thankfully, I found Leo's work by doing a Google Image search of our venue. He does not provide his rates up front, which initially deterred me. However, the packages proved to be very reasonable. We asked Leo if we could have our engagement session in New York City (where we live). He did not charge us anything extra to do this, except for the cost of transportation. Our shoot took place just five days after Hurricane Sandy had hit the area. Nonetheless, Leo took a 6 a.m. train to New York City for our shoot and returned to DC late that night! The photos from that day were SPECTACULAR. We have gotten compliments from many people that they are among the best they've ever seen. We can't wait to get our wedding photos! I HIGHLY recommend Leo: he is responsible, responsive, and kindhearted. Most importantly, he is a true artist.

I got married on May 11, 2013 and am so glad I went with Leo. He was easy to get ahold of before the wedding (which is critical!) and took amazing photos. We were also lucky enough to have him take our engagement photos a few months earlier. He is very particular with his shots (which can be a little time consuming - especially if you have a larger bridal party), but after seeing the results I wouldn't have changed a thing. LOVE the photos and LOVE the album he put together for us. 100% recommend him and his team.

Leo is more than a photographer, he is a true artist. Our pictures do more than give our wedding justice. They capture emotion. Leo has an exceptional talent. Having a wedding album as incredible as ours is worth every penny. After all, its all thats left after your big day is over.

Leo was excellent; he really took great care in framing each shot, to make sure it was a quality photo. He made sure that we got all the pictures we really wanted, and even set his equipment back up for us to get a pose in front of the altar before we left the church. He is very professional and a great photographer!

Leo is a great photographer who really took the time to know me personally. He remembered our story and captured it beautifully through his photography. Leo's communication is top notch; he always responded to emails same day and did not hesitate to call, email, or text if he had any updates for us. I love looking back at our pictures; the flood of emotions we felt on our wedding day come back as if we were right back there again. I would recommend Leo to anyone I know requiring photography services, not just for weddings but for any event.

I want to personally thank Leo for the amazing work he has done! Anyone who is looking for the highest level of professional work, coupled with the personal touch Leo DJ is the man for the job.

Honestly my fiancee and I could not have asked for a better individual to make us feel comfortable as we posed throughout a large state beach/park. We changed outfits four times, with no complaints from Leo. In fact he stayed with us, despite us going over our allotted time, and even asked to take pictures that we didn't think of, just so we would have the ultimate album.

Leo we want to thank you for making our experience not only memorable, but one that was perfect. If you cannot take great pictures and have a good time doing it with Leo then you probably will never have a good time taking pictures with anyone! Leo is simply the best and his prices are too. Trust me when I say that I shopped around with local photographers, and they wanted more for a lower quality product. Their websites had absolute crap.

Leo you are a true professional, and extremely gifted. Keep making us all look beautiful!

As soon as I saw Leo's photography online, I knew that he was the photographer I wanted for our wedding! My husband and I both really appreciate the art and talent that goes into great photography, and we agreed that this would be one of the most important vendors that we chose for our wedding. We could not be more happy with our choice to have Leo do our engagement and wedding photography!

In addition to being an incredibly talented photographer and passionate about his work, Leo is also very professional, timely, responsive, courteous, and friendly. We were a bit nervous about the engagement photos at first, but he made us feel at ease and spent a lot of time with us to make sure we got great photos that we would love and cherish for years to come.

During the planning process, Leo answered any questions I had in a very timely manner and was incredibly helpful with suggestions when I was worried or unsure of something. The day of the wedding he arrived on time and prepared, and worked diligently throughout the day to capture the fun, love, and beauty of our special day.

Everyone who has seen our engagement and wedding photos comments on how beautiful they turned out, and every time I look through them they bring a big grin to my face :) Thank you again Leo, you went above and beyond for our engagement and wedding photos and I would recommend you in a heartbeat! I hope someday in the future Matt & I will have the opportunity to work with you again!

Leo included in our photography package a few hours of engagement pictures at a location of our choice, which ended up turning out really well and was a nice addition to having just wedding pictures. He and his assistant also did an excellent job with the candid photographs from the wedding and reception, getting people who aren't posing for pictures, but just having fun and enjoying.

Hi Leo, I wanted to say thanks again for taking tons of pictures throughout my wedding day. I can't wait to see them! Thanks for getting to know Brent and me during our engagement pictures and meeting with us a couple times, before our big day. You really care about your clients and your work!

We interviewed several photographers before we finally found Leo. We knew Leo was exactly what we were looking for during our first meeting when he showed us some of his sample albums. As I was looking through his photos, I was brought to tears at the emotion captured in his images. Unlike other photographers that deliver typical run-of-the-mill (albeit sometimes beautiful) images and portraits, Leo's work reaches another level. He is an artist and has a unique eye for beautiful perspectives, color, and moment. He is also a perfectionist, although sometimes this means that it might take him longer to accomplish his vision while taking the picture and in editing. But he recognizes the importance of these events in a persons life, and wants to deliver nothing less than perfection. And he does! Just look at his images for yourself and you will see! Our engagement photos as well as our wedding day photos capture all the joy and emotion of our special day - one can't help but get choked up just looking at them. The only thing I regret is not getting our standard portrait shots with our families - the whole day went by so fast, that we forgot to get some of the basics. But, despite that, we are overwhelmed with joy at the beautiful moments and emotion-packed images we have to remember our wedding day. The images truly surpass everyone's expectations - and I've received countless compliments from family and friends and random people who weren't even at the wedding. Everyone in my family now knows and loves Leo's work - I see him as our "family photographer" - and I look forward to working with him again as our family grows.

Leo and his assistant were referred to as "ninjas" by our wedding guests because they were everywhere taking snapshots (yet not in the way). Even though the wedding album we selected had 60 photos, over 3000 were taken. Leo is very professional, attentive, dependable and a super-nice guy. Highly recommended!!!!

Leo was really great to work with and it is so obvious how much he cares about getting it right. He was very thorough from the beginning, as well as very helpful and understanding. The albums that we received (engagement and wedding) were perfect! They are really works of art. The wedding album especially, definitely captures the best of the day in a most idyllic way. We both (along with our parents and brothers and sister) LOVE everything that Leo did for us and we could not be happier.

When my husband and I first met him, we knew we wanted to hire him on the spot. We immediately fell in love with his style and didn't even want to meet any other photographers! Thank you a million times Leo.

I booked Leo relatively last minute for my "stateside reception". I had already had a wedding in Mexico and was unsure if I wanted to spend the money twice for a professional photographer. Leo's flexibility and price made me decide to spring for it - and I was very happy I did. His work was gorgeous - the beautiful "journalistic" type photos I was looking for - as well as perfect "staged" shots. My friends and family all enjoyed meeting him as well. Any request I had, he met. I wanted pictures of the food - and he took amazing still shots as well as action shots (ie getting served the tenderloin)... I would highly recommend him!

Leo was absolutely amazing. He was very professional and kept in contact with me in the weeks leading up to the event. He traveled over three hours to our little destination wedding and met us at the venue the evening before just to go over the specifics of the wedding day. I told him my concerns of how I usually look in pictures - he assured me that through different techniques, he would make sure I loved every single one. And he was right! He took all my concerns to heart and made me feel truly beautiful on my wedding day. Leo even stayed a few hours past his contract because he "could not pass up on the lighting". Now that is a TRUE photographer! :) My intentions were to recommend him to all my friends, family and coworkers but once they saw the pictures, they were hooked - I did not have to convince anyone and I have already given his information to several people. I highly recommend Leo DJ Photography. Without a doubt, we will be hiring him for all our professional photographer needs in the future.

Working with Leo was Very satisfying. He gave lot of suggestions as of good places for taking the pictures (i.e. when we were doing our prewedding session, we weren't having that much knowledge of where should it be taken locally, and he suggested the fransiscan monastery in downtown DC, which in the end we are really thankful that we ended up taking picture over there). He is also very adaptable / flexible, we did have quite a lot of spontaneous poses for the pictures, in which he happily took them for us and not just that, the end result came up awesome.
Keep up your good work Leo!
