About

My goal is to capture YOU.  To capture the love, the romance, the passion when you embrace, the smile you can’t hold back when you’re close.  I’m not interested in recreating someone else’s life, someone else’s pinterest board, someone else’s idea of perfection.  I want to photograph YOU and what makes YOU or your relationship amazing!

In 2009 I nervously made the jump from taking photos to becoming an artist.  It was then I photographed my first wedding and realized I could not only bring a creative eye to a wedding, but I found that I could be a calming presence on your big day.  I could help my couples slow down the day of their wedding and take more of it in.  I could be there to support and encourage their marriage and to help capture the memories from their engagement, to the big day, to the first days of the joys of becoming parents, and to capture their families as they grow.  It’s such an honor and I look forward to becoming part of your story!

Hi!  I’m Leif.  I’m a wedding and portrait photographer.  I’m a follower of Christ, a husband, a father, an average musician, an artist, a friend, and a lover of desserts.  I love strong relationships, marriages that last a lifetime, and imperfect people doing their best to be better than they were yesterday.

In 1999 I married that cute gal sitting next to me.  I married up.  I win.  Now we have two beautiful daughters.  I win again.  Harper is goofy and artistic.  Stella is a very loving goofball.   I’m very much in love with all three of my girls.  I win!  Our marriage isn’t perfect.  Our kids aren’t always perfectly behaved and often look homeless.  I’m far from the American standard of wealthy…but I love the life we have and that my career lets me spend a ton of time with my family and friends while making new friends.

 

That’s me…
