Love Stories by LGEmerick Photography
You’re getting Married
Wow! Congrats! If you are checking out this page you might be considering me to cover your big day. That is an awesome idea. I have shot weddings professionally for six years from the UK to LA and would love to talk more with you about capturing all your magic!
Being a published, international, award winning wedding photographer takes a lot of hard work and practice. I have worked furiously to learn the ins and outs of all things wedding so that I can ensure total peace of mind for you on your day. From the first time we talk to the pre-wedding consults to the day itself I will have worked closely with you to build a relationship and structure for your photo needs that will blend seamlessly with your celebration and deliver images that will stand the test of time.
Behind the Lens
Hey! I’m Leah and I am your photographer! When I am not focused on all things photography you can often times find me scouring thrift stores, playing with my cat and dog, volunteering at my church, watching “The Office” with my husband, and dying her hair.
Real Couples, Real Reviews
Is an engagement shoot included?
Only if you want it to be. All of my packages are tailored to each individual couple. While I do highly recommend an engagement shoot for a lot of reasons (we can go into that later) it does not always what is best for the couple.
My family is crazy. Can you deal with that?
Weddings are stressful and a lot of times bring out the best and the worst in the family dynamic. Before you wedding I will send you a questionnaire that will help me not only make sure I get every single shot you want, but also gives me insight into how to navigate delicate relationships and rivalries while also keeping the peace.
Do you include a second shooter?
Depending on the size, length, and layout of your wedding a second shooter may not always be necessary. In fact there are many cases where a second shooter can get in the way, crowd, or overpower a wedding (especially if it is smaller and more intimate). When you reach out to me I will ask you a few specific questions that will help me determine if a second shooter is a good idea for your ideal wedding coverage.
How do you deliver our final images?
All the images from your wedding will be delivered two ways.
1.) you will be provided with a gorgeous, mobile-compatible, online gallery for one year that also will allow a single online download of all of your images directly onto your computer of choice.
2.) You will be provided a USB with all of your images to be stored in a separate location away from your computer as backup. Your photos are guaranteed to be edited and returned to you within 8 weeks of your wedding.
What steps do you take to keep our pictures safe?
All of the cameras used to photograph your wedding are equipped with dual memory card slots. Each photo taken is duplicated onto the second card throughout the day. Then after the wedding your photos are loaded onto the main editing computer and the backup cards are placed in a fireproof safe until your online gallery is loaded and delivered.
Do you provide a wedding album?
I work alongside a fine art, professional grade printer that helps me create timeless heirloom albums for some of my brides and grooms. It is a great way to preserve your memories in a beautiful keepsake way. This service can be added on to any package.
Awesome! I want to book you! How much does it cost?
All weddings are different and there is no good, one-size-fits-all answer for this. I customize my prices based off of what kind of coverage will best fit your event.
My full day wedding coverage starts at $2,500 and goes up to $9,000 with most couples averaging around $3,500. Hourly coverage starts at $450/hr. To get a more accurate quote feel free to contact me.
