Lessie is the most compassionate, easy to communicate with , professional photographer I have ever had the joy of working with. Lessie has a skill set the surpasses many others, her attention to detail, her willingness to try new things and her commitment to the highest quality photos and experience for all who have the honor of booking with her is unprecedented. Lessie was patient with me as I asked many questions and ended up needing a few days to determine if she was a good fit for our wedding and my gosh I am so grateful we booked with her! Lessie has a soul that is so invested in producing authenticity that many photos seem to lack. She gently coaches you through posed photos with a true air of expertise and ease. She also had the flawless ability to capture moments that may otherwise be lost somewhere in memory alone. Moments such as family members dancing, the bride and groom sharing an intimate look and smile or your favorite uncle grabbing one too many from the bar! Lessie captures life and gives life to all she meets. Booking with her will guarantee your photos will be more than you could ever dream. She will be our go to for the rest of our lives!
