Capturing your sweetest moments

authentic, natural, timeless photography for life

I'm so pleased with our engagement and wedding photos. The photos displayed our playful personalities along with our outrageously fun wedding party. She captured those little moments between Brian & I that say so much more than 'traditional' wedding photos. My husband isn't too keen on getting his picture taken, but Erin made it a very fun, relaxed environment for him to feel comfortable in. I would recommend Erin as your photographer for your wedding. You will LOVE your photos and feel at easy about your whole wedding photo experience.

I love how our family pictures turned out! My boys were squirmy and uncooperative to say the least. Erin knew just what to do to get my boys to smile and cooperate. Because of her skills and patience our pictures turned out amazing! Thank you so much Erin Leigh Photography for capturing these amazing pictures that we will have for a lifetime.

I love how our family photos turned out!

Every so often I still go through all the photos from our wedding day and I still love every photo. Now that we have grown into a little family, Erin still gets to capture our busy, never sits still, adorable little boy! Even when you think you didn't get a good photo because of an uncooperative toddler, she comes through again with handfuls of amazing pictures that I will cherish forever! If you are looking for a wedding photographer, Erin is your gal! If you are looking for a family photographer, Erin is a great choice! She will be our photographer for life!

Our experience, overall, was absolutely fantastic! We were able to schedule our engagement session on the perfect day so that we could capture specific photos in the exact location we wanted.  Her experience behind the camera and her editing was everything we could have asked for, I recommend Erin Leigh Photography to anyone who wants to look back at their photos and remember each moment from your engagement to the best day ever! Our wedding experience was captured perfectly with Erin!  I LOVE looking back to the entire album and reminisce of our Big Day!

i love looking back to the entire album!

I really appreciate your talent!



Erin does a phenomenal job of capturing each moment of your special day! She is creative, energetic, flexible, and up for pretty much anything you request! I loved her sense of uniqueness and outdoor shots. She fit our style to a tee! We used her for both our engagement and wedding photos and loved every one.

Erin has the best eye for composition and lighting of any photographer around! She is truly an artist! I also love that she gives out digital copies of high resolution pictures and a print release. Prior to have our family pictures with Erin, we had done them with another local photographer who forced us to buy our prints from their shop. We got only a few prints (and not even very big!) and the prints alone cost us over $600! With our digital files from Erin, we found a cheap (but high quality) online printer and got a ton of prints including large formats and canvases for only a few hundred dollars. This is a way better deal!

She is truly an artist!



Erin did our engagement and wedding photography. She is the BEST photographer I've worked with. I could not be happier with how the photos turned out. She is creative and very helpful when it comes to posing you so that you look your best. I could not say enough good things about Erin Leigh Photography!!! Thank you so much!!!

she is the Best photographer i've worked with!

I love how the pictures of my grandkids turned out! I can't believe you were able to capture such great photos of those 5 rascally boys! Your timing was impeccable. There were so many great photos it was hard to pick favorites. We got many comments and compliments on our Christmas cards! Thanks, Erin!
