“For what it’s worth... it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you’ve never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start over again.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald

“Leandra led with empathy in helping us navigate our tough decisions and unexpected challenges and worked with us to choose a third date when we were ready. So finally on October 4th. 2020 we were able to proceed with our wedding and she made the day (which I was expecting to be a very hard and emotional day) fun, enjoyable, and lighthearted and she knew exactly what to capture and when to capture it.”
The forest fires were steamy and so was their love. Okay, that’s it I’m over it I thought it would be like a fun play on words but now I regret it. I don’t even know where to begin with Courtney and Matt. Since day 1 when we met over a year ago at a […]
Anna & Erik’s private 10 person elopement was absolutely magical. It wasn’t what they had planned, given the changes to their 150+ person wedding do to COVID-19, but they truly made the best with what was possible and I was so excited to help them create a day that was perfect for them. I feel so grateful to have been a part of their beautiful celebration journey in Boone, North Carolina.
