Leslie Barbaro Photography
I initially met Leslie when I was a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding & was impressed by how gorgeous my friend's pictures came out as well as her professionalism & how quickly Leslie was able to capture all the group shots. I have been in many weddings before & always felt like it took forever to take all the pictures. You wedding night will fly by so quickly so you want to enjoy as much of it as possible & not spend the whole night posing for pictures. Working with Leslie throughout the process was completely seamless & pleasurable. She was super flexible with our schedule even after we had to cancel our engagement session several times due to inclement weather & other mishaps. On the wedding day, working with Leslie was great. She is always professional but also has a super fun personality and is able to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. We got all our posed shots done in a timely manner & were even able to join our cocktail hour for a little bit. Not to mention our pictures came out AMAZING!!!!! We've received so many compliments on how great our pictures look & they've even been featured on weddingchannel.com as well as Yahoo which is pretty cool :-) If you're looking for a wedding photographer, I HIGHLY recommend that you move forward with Leslie. We are so glad we did! I'm currently in the process of working with her to design our wedding album and continue to be pleased with the outstanding quality of her work as well as exceptional level of professionalism.
Due to a last minute cancellation, my husband and I were preparing ourselves for the possibility that we might not be able to obtain a photographer for our wedding day. I contacted Leslie to see if she was available and thankfully she responded immediately. Because of the limited amount of time until our wedding, I was concerned that some details might be overlooked. This was not the case the day of our wedding. Leslie is an amazing photographer. Her professionalism and incredible insight as an artist was truly remarkable. My entire family commented on her pleasant and energetic demeanor. I can't thank her enough for making one of the most important days in our lives a great success. We are so grateful to have had her as our wedding photographer.
Leslie is amazing. She took our engagement photos months leading up to the wedding, and she did a fabulous job. I was able to contact her as frequently as I needed to leading up to the wedding, and on our wedding day, so many guests commented that they barely even saw her- she did not block the guests from seeing anything like so many photographers do. Leslie's photos are above and beyond what I could have hoped for, and all of my guests have complimented them. I definitely recommend her!
Leslie was so great to work with. She was very professional and organized throughout the entire process of planning the wedding. On the wedding day itself she made sure we stayed on scheduled and was very relaxing to work with which is particularly important on such a hectic day! Her photos are so incredibly professional and we are very happy we went with her. I get compliments on my photos all the time and when I compare her pictures to others' it confirms that we went with the right photographer. I honestly have nothing bad to say about Leslie or her service. She was very patient with all my album change requests too and just so helpful in creating the perfect album to meet our budget! I kind of wish we had gotten a second photographer but then choosing pictures for the photo album would have been even harder!
Leslie is an absolutely fabulous person and photographer. My now husband and I found her online after meeting with and researching other photographers in the Delaware Valley. After our first meeting we knew she was the one to go with. Leslie made our entire experience memorable and fun. She's ultra professional, accommodating, and personal. The guests at our wedding loved her, some even thought that she was an old friend. I can't say enough good things about her. On top of this her work is phenomenal! I recommend her to any and everyone looking for a photographer.
I can't say enough good things about working with Leslie Barbaro for my wedding. She was so nice and flexible with planning before the wedding. She was very organized and responsive. On the day of the wedding she was fantastic. The only time we had to pose was at the church and with our bridal party and outside of that I hardly knew she was there - but at the same time she got amazing shots of every little detail and very candid pictures of the people and special moments. I couldn't be happier with the pictures, they are truly amazing. I would recommend her to anyone!
Leslie and her work are totally incredible - you will not meet a nicer lady with fantastic photography skills! I am so thankful she was able to photograph our wedding. The beautiful photographs Leslie and her assistant took will be treasured forever - my friends and family can't stop talking about how beautiful our wedding photos are. In addition to being talented, Leslie is very generous with her time - she traveled to Philadelphia for our engagement shoot and South Jersey for our wedding. She promptly answered all the questions I had and stayed calm around my crazy family! Leslie, you are a true professional. Thank you for sharing your gift with us!
As a bride, one of the most important things to me was having a great photographer who provided us with great pictures. Once the day is over, that is all you have. I had very high expectations and Leslie exceeded them all. She is one of the most AMAZING photographers I have ever seen! She has a great eye and true artistic flair that comes through in her work. When I saw her photos after the wedding, I was in tears at how beautiful they were. They truly took me back right to the day. In addition to taking awesome, gorgeous photos, she was on-time, professional, and fun! She was also very helpful when setting up my wedding day time line, advising me on how we could maximize the time and get the best pictures, but still have time to just enjoy the day. I was so happy with her work, that a few months after the wedding, I did a post-wedding shoot at a farm in my wedding dress. Since we didn't have time on the day of the wedding to get pictures of me with horses, we set up another time to do it and I am so glad that I did! Again, Leslie took the most gorgeous pictures and it was a relaxed and fun day. I HIGHLY recommend Leslie for your wedding day....guaranteed you will get gorgeous pictures that will bring tears of joy to your eyes!
Leslie's photos really capture somthing different - I love them. I am not sure how she got such great shots because I hardly noticed she was there! I wouldn't have a single hesitation in hiring her for any event.
We just wanted to thank you for doing such an amazing job with our wedding photos. The one you put on the CD is wonderful. It's the kind of photo you think everyone should have of their wedding. You were a real pleasure and joy to work with.
These are fantastic! I also can't state enough how comfortable you made me feel. I'm a person who usually HATES to take pictures. You made me look very good indeed, and I felt at ease the whole time. Thank you so much for being part of our day.
We can't thank you enough for the wonderful job you did capturing our day. Watching the montage with the music made both of us tear up. We couldn't be more pleased that you were our photographer, and several times have remarked to each other how happy we were that we chose you.
Almost one year later and I have to tell you... I was looking over my album and fell in love with the pictures all over again. You are an amazing artist. I'm thrilled to tell every bride I know about you.
Leslie has an eye that captures photos that always give that wow!! For us, there is nothing better than that!
The highest praise I can offer about Leslie's work is that we included her work in our book on gay wedding photography. She's a wonderful resource for same-sex couples!
I work with clients personally at each step of the process, from engagment session to album design. My style is a modern, documentary approach with elegant, relaxed portraiture. All albums are custom designed.
I have more than 15 years experience as a professional photojournalist and have been photographing weddings for more than 5 years. I hold a master's degree in visual communication and received my bachelor's at University of Delaware.
I'm based in both Wilmington, DE and Northern New Jersey and frequently work in Bucks County, PA. I'm available for events throughout the region including New York, the Delaware beaches and the Jersey Shore.
