While researching wedding venders, we only needed to meet with one wedding photographer, Leslie. We met with her and instantly knew she was the perfect choice for us. From her responsiveness to her flexibility (she was even willing to do our engagement shoot on Memorial day to accommodate our schedules), Leslie was a pleasure to work with. On the day of our wedding she was both respectful of the space my husband and I needed while also being there up close to capture every moment of our special day. On looking back on our photos, Leslie truly captured our "wedding story" and the joy our family and friends shared with us.

It was AMAZING to work with Leslie and her awesome team!! She was so gracious, from the first time we stepped into her house to talk about the wedding, our story and style all the way through our engagement shoot (she made us so comfortable in front of the camera!), and of course on the big day!! She made everyone feel so comfortable, and was so flexible to work with - and on top of it all her pictures were amazing! It was the perfect balance of candids, artistic and formal pictures and Bryan and I were thrilled! Leslie also put together an amazing slide show she presented to us at our house after the wedding showing her favorite images from the day...it showed the amount of time and thought she put into editing and working with our photos and brought us all back to the day! We have nothing but great things to say about her throughout the entire wedding process!

Leslie was simply amazing! Initially we had some weather issues, she rearranged the plan and accommodate my request for outside beach photos. We sat with her ahead of time to map out our route and off we went around the town to our favorite places to shoot. Never feeing like it was fake or poised shots, my hubby and I were relaxed laughing all the while she was snapping away capturing our happiness. Her personality makes you shine! She fulfilled my wishes of beautiful beach candids. Following our private wedding we hosted a family party on another date. Leslie once again captured the life and love at out party getting priceless family shots. I truley would reccomend you choosing her for your wedding photos!

We were lucky and honored to serendipitously meet Leslie the very day we set our wedding date. Before we knew her work, we knew her. Leslie's personal investment in the couples she works with shows in every picture she takes. In the months leading up to our wedding, Leslie took the time to get to know us individually and as a couple. She gathered information about all the things we valued: our families, our friends...all the details that shaped our relationship and our wedding. Her masterful blend on emotion, artistry, environment, and light create pictures that will be cherished always.

Leslie was our photographer for our wedding and was just awesome! She was so fun and captured the spirit of our event perfectly. From the pre-wedding photos which were converted into our guest book, to the pre-ceremony events, and right into the ceremony and reception she and her assistant were with us. Our parents and friends all enjoyed working with her, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who enjoys the uniqueness and beauty that a professional like Leslie can provide!

Leslie and her partner did an absolutely amazing job capturing our day. Leslie also kept the entire day running smoothy and helped me keep my sanity. She has been fantastic to work with, even now, a year later, as we put together our album. The only problem is there are too many wonderful pictures from which to choose!

Leslie and her team did an excellent job throughout the engagement, wedding and post wedding process. She made a point to truly connect with my husband and I and we loved getting to know her. Leslie and her team did high quality photography, were warm and kind, and kept me calm and sane on a stressful wedding day. We hope to work with Leslie in the future when we have children for portraits and we highly recommend her to friends and family.

Leslie was great from start to finish.
Very personable! She makes you feel like a FRIEND rather than a client.
All of the guests loved her - she just has a way with people.
All requests for certain portraits - specific shots to get - were met.
She goes above and beyond!

Leslie Dumke really kicked off our wedding planning as she was our first booked vendor and introduced us to our wedding planner. We felt like Leslie was the head of the village that "raised" our wedding if you know what I mean. We were so well taken care of by her. Although she couldn't actually do our photography on the day (note: book very early, she was booked 11 months before our date), she left us in capable hands with her assistant and brought in another very talented photographer on the day. We were thrilled with the photos.

The cost of photography was probably one of the more shocking discoveries in the wedding planning so search around and see what the costs are and then go to Leslie to be taken care of once you've gotten over the shock so you can really appreciate her work.

Although she couldn't actually do our photography on the day (note: book very early, she was booked 11 months before our date), she left us in capable hands with her assistant and brought in another very talented photographer on the day. We were thrilled with the photos.

The cost of photography was probably one of the more shocking discoveries in the wedding planning so search around and see what the costs are and then go to Leslie to be taken care of once you've gotten over the shock so you can really appreciate her work. Read less

Leslie Dumke Studio responded with the following comments:

I am so sorry that you were not happy with the proofs. Please feel free to contact me and let me know what it is that you are not happy with. I'd love to help you out and make things better in any way that I can. Perhaps we can review the imagery and reprint your favorite images as custom enlargements for an album. I just looked at contact sheets from 32 rolls of film from the three locations of your evening wedding. Things look pretty comprehensive, posed and candid, creative. I'd love to know more about your dissatisfaction and work with you so that you are more happy. I'm always dedicated to making all my clients happy.
