hi there!

A wedding and portrait photographer for joyful people in love.

I'm Leigh Ann

If you're looking for joyful, timeless photos
to pass down to your family,

you're in the right place.

Living by grace with the world’s greatest husband, three delightful kiddos, a respectable stash of Earl Grey tea and dark chocolate bars, and a camera that makes all of my creative juices bubble.



Most days, you’ll find me in sweaty running clothes, hanging with my sweet family and finding ways to be creative. Whether it's taking photos, baking unnecessarily complicated desserts, or pretending I’m Joanna Gaines in our very own St. Louis Fixer Upper, creating beautiful things makes me come alive.

I serve couples and families who truly enjoy one another, and want to pass that joy on to the next generation. So let’s get together and make some beautiful memories!

I used to check out baking books from the library as a kid - and I still do! I'm honing my skills in case the Great British Baking Show ever opens a bench for an American.
