ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Hi, I’m Leah Follett, primary photographer for Follett Photography. Thanks for stopping by!
Being a photographer is all I really know. Starting 15 years ago, I received my training as a photographer in many forms over a 4 year period. I worked as a child and newborn photographer first and then I worked for and alongside commercial photographers and real estate photographers. Although in 2008 I decided to focus on what I loved most in the industry; wedding, newborns and family photography.
I am a photographer because it not only gives joy to others, it returns joy. That is because it is a privilege to see people in their happiest moments. I have so much fun getting to know my clients and their families, capturing them in a way that is fun and makes them laugh. I want my clients to be able to use their photographs in the future to trigger real memories and not just to remember what they looked like, but for how they felt…to relive the moment. After our session, I get see the look on my clients faces when they view their photos, and they see how I’ve captured their story. When they smile, and sometimes tear up… these moments are why I love photography. It’s not just my job, it’s my passion.
How am I different?
I spend the time getting to know my clients, especially my brides and grooms, so they feel comfortable in my presence. I want to create an environment where they can almost forget that I am there. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely give directions so everyone looks their best and knows what they are doing. But after that, my job is to disappear and have the couple or family feel alone enough to be their true selves. Almost like they have hired their close friend to take their photographs.
If you are someone looking for a wedding photographer, I would love to chat with you about all your hopes for your wedding day. It really is all about your two! Choosing a photographer can be hard, but hopefully I can take some of the stress out of it for you.
Invest in an amazing photographer and never be disappointed. A little hint… Look for the AIPP accredited professional photographer logo.
