So I've been the owner and a photographer of Leslie Ann Photographers for the past 17 years. I am a country girl living in the city, and mom to two very active teenagers. As an Arizona native I enjoy spending hot days by the pool or at the lake. And gym time is a necessity due to my love of so many sweet treats!!
Caramel, ice cream, chocolate covered almonds... the list goes on and on but that would bore you! I enjoy country dancing, do-it-yourself projects, chalk paint, paper crafting and even a little basic crocheting. Some of my favorite things are Apple products, a good pair of jeans, chai tea lattes... hot or cold, both chinese and mexican foods, pretty papers and great fonts.
I’ve been editing for Leslie Ann Photographers for 2 years and seeing these beautiful couples grace the screen of my computer brings so much joy to me. Seeing the pretty people and all the pretty details, the uniqueness of each couple simply makes me smile. My favorite part of the day starts with a cup of coffee and a good book. I love mexican food… especially chips and salsa. And peanut M&M’s will curb my sweet tooth. I enjoy cooking…I especially like trying recipes from the Pioneer Woman Cookbooks. Playing card games with family and friends tops the list as well as camping and spending time outdoors exploring Arizona. And nice people are my kinda people!
I've been a professional photographer since 2010. I'm married to my high school sweet heart and we have 3 beautiful kids together. I’m an Arizona native, but I’m pretty sure I belong on the beach somewhere. When I'm not photographing, you can find me chauffeuring my kids around, on the couch catching up on my Netflix shows or doing a home improvement project- one of my favorite things to do. Some of my other favorite things are date nights with my husband, pizza, and vanilla lattes.
There is nothing more intimidating than trying to decide what you should know about me! You’re busy. I’m busy. I’ll keep this short and sweet: I’ve been shooting weddings since 2009. I love 80’s music, documentaries, Kate Spade, and overuse the exclamation point! I am a #boymom… yes, all boys! I’m awesome at making homemade bread and jam. But what you really need to know about me is that I’m also awesome at knowing what you need on your wedding day to go as smooth as possible. Think of me like... a favorite aunt. And who doesn’t want their favorite aunt in their corner on their wedding day!
Besides editing photos, I enjoy taking my own landscape photography and creating messy, beautiful charcoal drawings. Totally addicted to rainy days, pineapple pizza, and boba tea! I spend my evenings watching Parks & Recreation while snuggling with Victor, my adorable but spoiled Chorgi (yes, that’s a Chihuahua Corgi mix!). I also adore exploring new places, whether it's a day trip with friends or venturing to new countries - next on my travel list is Iceland!
