Leah goes beyond the traditional poses to capture the true authenticity of the moment. While you will still receive the traditional, with Leah, you will also receive the unexpected. By allowing her subjects to be in their natural state, with a few subtle suggestions, Leah is able to capture a more relaxed and natural state of being, revealing the true beauty of the moment. With this photojournalistic approach to your session or event, you will be provided with an artistic compilation of images that reveal an honest portrayal of that special day, or moment, in your life.

There is no question that Leah is one of the better professional photographers in the Delaware area! My bride stressed very early on that the photographer was very important to her and that we needed to get it right. Well, we hit a home run with Leah. We came to her with a lot of our own ideas and she was thrilled to have them incorporated! She was beyond professional and loads of fun to be around. She's all around friendly, responsive and has more vision than most photographers I've worked with. Even when we were running short on time for photos after the ceremony, she never faltered and always kept her cool. The moment we had our first meeting with Leah, we knew we had found the right photographer for us. She took our engagement photos as well and even when we were being goofy and silly and probably wasting her time, she captured the essence of our relationship in a number of beautiful shots. I know our wedding photos are going to be amazing due to our amazing photographer!
This was one of the first vendors we nailed down, because we just knew she'd do a fantastic job! We will whole-heartedly recommend Leah to any future bride and groom! Thank you, Leah!

Michael and I couldn't be happier with our choice to hire Leah as our wedding photographer. As a bride, the photographer was one of the most important vendors to me, and Leah definitely delivered beyond my expectations. Our wedding package consisted of an engagement shoot, rehearsal dinner coverage & all day wedding coverage with Leah & a second shooter. The engagement session was great because we were able to become comfortable with Leah and see her shooting style before our big day.
Her presence at the rehearsal & rehearsal dinner was key for a smooth wedding day. After the rehearsal, we felt very comfortable that she was familiar with the ceremony program, met our family & friends and saw the space where she would be shooting. This also allowed for us to discuss any last minute ideas or potential issues, which eased my stress as a bride. Not many photographers offer this service.
For the wedding, she helped us to create a schedule for the day (which was so helpful!) and discussed our ideas for certain shots before hand. During the ceremony at our church, she respectfully took pictures and was not overbearing . She captured every detail beautifully, whether inside without the flash or on the beach in full sunlight. She got so many different expressions and emotions in our photos. The editing of our images is impeccable- she is truly a professional. Some of them look like they came straight out of a bridal magazine.
Leah is so much more than just a wedding photographer. She was instrumental in keeping us on time throughout the day and while we were getting ready, she was giving advice and even offered to help bustle my dress. Multiple wedding guests remarked how pleasant and helpful she was. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a polite, professional & immensely talented photographer.

Working with Leah was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! Leah was so pleasant and enjoyable to work with. She had great advice with regards to scheduling and really helped us make great decisions with our photography. (Highly recommend doing a first look!) Since we planned from out of state, we did not meet until the day of the rehearsal, but by the end of the wedding it felt like we were old friends. Both Leah and Austin were completely professional, fun to be around, and the pictures came out spectacularly. Leah's photojournalistic style is exactly what we were looking for and there are so many great photos we can hardly decide which ones to print. Everyone who has seen our pictures has commented on how great they are.

There is not enough words to describe Leah! She's friendly, talented, down to earth and professional. She was able to book us at such a short period of time, and my Husband & I LOVED working with her & Austin! She made the day memorable and was such a joy to work with! I cannot thank her enough for being a part of our day & giving something we will be able to cherish forever.
She has a client/fan for life with the Stamps Family!!! :-)

My husband and I got married on August 31, 2013 and we were so lucky stumble upon Leah through a mutual friend of ours at their wedding two years ago. I remember seeing the photos she took of their wedding and loved them! Finding a great photographer if you do not know one is hard to do, but we were extremely so lucky we didn't have to search far. We live in Northern VA and even though she lives in Delaware she kindly traveled to us to shoot our special day. She captured every precious moment, ones you can't get back. We just got our photos, all 400 and some and all of them are absolutely divine. The photos came in a hard-bound display book with an easily accessible thumb drive which contains both high resolution large print files and Facebook ready files. She offers several packages that can be customizable to fit your budget. Looking at them all, took us back to that day, made us remember what a special day it was and all the emotions of how happy we felt. We are so lucky we found her. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and it goes by so fast, so much is going on all at once that some parts seems like a blur. People don't realize it until after its all said and done that those pictures are what you have left. She did such an AMAZING job of getting every aspect of the wedding. There were some shots I didn't even know she took and I was thrilled to see. Her focus and attention to detail is unlike anything I've ever seen. She knows the perfect backdrops and placement of important pieces that nothing will be missed. She is by far the best photographer around and if you are looking for your dream day to be captured so that it takes you back for memories to cherish a lifetime she is the one! I can't be more happier and we will use her for all of our photography needs in the future. She is perfection! Robin Smith

I absolutely give Photography by Leah 5 stars. I would give more if I could. When first meeting Leah, I felt an instant connection. She sat with me for about an hour and we looked at samples and discussed my wedding. The packages she offers are more than reasonable. You get SO much in any one package. Your dollar really goes far. She told me I would get around 300-400 pictures. I got over 500. She also gives you rights to your pictures, which helps with cost (so you don't have to pay for the photography, then also $$/picture to have them in your possession! She and her second shooter, Austin stayed for the ENTIRE WEDDING (she came around 11am to take pictures of us getting ready, Austin went with the guys), Basically over a 10hr day for them. They got pictures of everything, including last minute requests from my family. She graciously obliged to anything we wanted. I honestly am SO happy with my pictures, I am being told by everything that Leah does amazing work, and that they are so intrigued by how unique her style is. The company is just her, Photography by Leah, ran solely by Leah - so you aren't getting a stock "pose like this" picture. You really do get unique -- and it only took 6 weeks to get my amazing pictures back. I've already told Leah that we would be contacting her in the future for maternity and baby/family shoots when the time comes. We found our forever photographer for sure! I would and DO recommend Leah to everyone!

Leah was amazing, very professional, and not "in the way"but was always there for the great shots. She is very artistic - not just "point and shoot" shots. My daughter got married at an historic Inn and she got some great shots in the beautiful parlor with interesting poses, as well as outside - with various backgrounds. Her package is an amazing value for all that it covers and my daughter felt comfortable from the moment she met her and knew she wanted her to be her photographer for her wedding - we did not look any further.

Leah was an abosolute DELIGHT to work with---she was super professional, very detailed, and a blast to have around through all the wedding events (from the rehearsal dinner till the end of the reception). From the very first meeting in which she spent a lot of time explaining different packages and how she works with editing, I got the impression that she puts 150% into the photography for an event and that's exactly what happened over our wedding weekend. She mingled beautifiully with the guests so they felt comfortable around her taking photos and come reception time when there were several funny antics (especially on the dance floor) she was right there documenting everything without 'being in the way.' She is a true professional and I really can't wait to see her edited photos of our wedding. Thank you Leah!!

Leah was such a pleasure to work with! She came to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner to get a feel for the venue and to make the wedding party and family comfortable working with her. This is a wonderful personal touch that you don't always get with a wedding photographer. Leah was professional and personable throughout the entire process. Leah's 'teaser picture' is gorgeous and we can't wait to see all of our pictures!

Leah is a truely gifted photographer; she has a way of not just taking a "picture" but capturing the very heart of those she photographs. My husband and I were thrilled with the lovely memories she has privided us. She is both professional and warm, and listens to what you want, and delievers a fabulous result. Our hardest job is trying to narrow down the photos to have in our book because there are so many wonderful photos. We cannot recommend her highly enough - the value, the professionalism, the flexibiliy, the end result - FABULOUS!

Leah was so awesome!! We haven't gotten pictures yet but she was an absolute delight to work with. Leah came to our rehearsal to see how things were set up. She and I even talked about potential places to take pictures on the day of the wedding. She showed up on time and we went to check out the ballroom before we got dressed. Leah had sent me a schedule and we kept to it. She took me to a variety of locations to shoot pictures and was willing to work with us since my fiance didn't want to see me before the ceremony. We were able to get the majority of pictures done before the ceremony and then only had to worry about group shots afterwards. We spent a lot of time laughing even when she was trying to get more serious pictures. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who's still looking for a photographer!

Leah photographed my August 26, 2011 wedding at Pier 5 Hotel. She was INCREDIBLE to work with considering our wedding took place just days after an earthquake shook the east coast and a mere 12 hours before Hurricane Irene hit Baltimore!!! She knew exactly what to do to keep me calm even months before the wedding day!
I want to enlarge every single one of the pictures she took to an 11x14 and hang them on all of our walls! She got every shot that we had requested and talked about and so much more! We had gotten so comfortable with her that it was like having a friend there taking all of your photographs. A friend that won't let you down and do everything they can to get the perfect shot! We can't thank you enough for all the amazing work you put into making such a beautiful collection for us! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!!!

I can't even begin to express how happy we are that we chose Leah to photograph our wedding. We now have pictures that are beautiful beyond words to remember one of the most important days of our lives. And more than just that, it was such a pleasure working with Leah in advance of the wedding and the day of. Her vision and arrangement of bridal portraits was amazing and her style of shooting is so unobtrusive that when we got our pictures, we couldn't believe some of the candid shots that were captured because we didn't even know we were being photographed at the time.

After almost 3 years since Leah photographed our daughter's wedding, we still LOVE to look at her pictures. Other than the purposefully posed pictures at the church after the ceremony (which we requested), she just blended in at the rehearsal dinner, and pre-wedding shots, took some absolutely gorgeous candid pictures of the wedding party and the reception, and managed to get pictures all of our guests. There was no intrusive, "in-your-face" interrupting of conversations for posed pictures. She did a remarkable job. I would highly recommend Leah for any photography work. She also did our daughter's engagement pictures, and I have seen family pictures that she did for another acquaintance. AND....she did pictures of our son and his wife. Are you getting the idea that we think she is good?!? :) Trust me.....you won't be disappointed.

Leah was wonderful to work with. She put everyone at ease taking posed photographs so they all came out beautifully. During the wedding and reception, I didn't notice her or her assistant, which was great because she was able to capture wonderful moments without getting in anyone's way.

Leah shot our wedding back in October of 2010. Her correspondence via email before the event was always punctual, and put us at ease knowing she was so well organized. She showed up on time, with a contagious smile and attitude. My mom disliked the make up artist, was annoyed with the event planner, even thought the minister was some what rude (for limiting photos in the church) but Im pretty sure she would have taken Leah home as a second daughter. That's a win in my book, the photos tell the rest.
