I am a red-headed to Travis and
(Austin, Alex, Ashton, Ames and Finn). I was born and raised in the south, but NYC will forever have a piece of my heart after attending Grad School at NYU. I love to the world and see the beautiful places that God made. I am addicted to Cheerwine, anything chocolate, Pinterest and netflix couch dates with my hubby.
I love my home and shopping- Pottery Barn, West Elm, Anthropologie, Gap and JCrew are my faves! I incorporate nature into everything
as much as I can. I love throwing cute for my kids! I love to laugh a lot. I am a sap. I can't control the tears at movies and even find myself tearing up at some weddings.
I married my high school sweetheart at the young age of 19. Most people doubted we would last, but year after year, we prove them wrong. I believe in love-love that takes your breath away, love that makes you not want to imagine another moment of your life without that person, love that fills you with so much joy that you can't walk away. I have felt that love and I have seen that love in others. Love, it is the reason why I do what I do.
I believe in marriage. My marriage was one the biggest foundations of who I became as an adult. Granted I was practically a kid when I tied the knot, but from day one, I put my marriage first. Every decision we made, it was the best choice for the marriage. Marriage has been my greatest challenge and my greatest blessing. The beginning of our journey as husband and wife is the moment that changed it all. Marriage is worth celebrating.
Beginnings. They are exciting. The flutter of your heart when he enters the room, the glitter of his eyes when he looks at you. Love happens so quickly and nothing like those first moments ever feels the same. The first moment as an engaged couple, the first moments as a husband and wife. Those will never be again. I want to capture those beginnings. Love is such a big part of my story, and I want to help you tell YOUR LOVE STORY.

"Once I was engaged, I began immediately looking for a photographer. I've known for a long time I wanted to really invest in a good wedding photographer. I spent literally *hours* searching the internet for photographers and I would look at ALL of their work they had posted. I was never pleased - until I came across Candi Leonard. I was speechless after checking out all of her online albums at her style of photography. It was so light, and she captured emotions like I had never seen before. I KNEW she was the one. She took our engagement, bridal, and wedding photos and I COULD NOT BE MORE PLEASED!! She is the way to go!! Since then, when I found out I was pregnant, she helped me pull off a surprise photo shoot to tell my hubby! How many photographers are that personal??"
"Working with Candi was a dream. She was prompt, efficient and took such great care in making sure that we got the photos that we loved! She was super quick in getting our photos back for us to see in a timely manner, and we have already shared so many of them with friends and family. Would book her again in a heartbeat!!!
"When ranking the things I cared about most for our wedding, our pictures were number one. Candi truly delivered exactly what I was wanting and exceeded our expectations. I knew from the moment she wanted our engagement pictures to capture our love for hiking, that we had made the right decision. Our wedding day was very rainy and we had an outside wedding planned. Candi didn’t hesitate to get out in the rain and get wet to get the perfect shots for us. She was the one that kept me calm all day, telling me that even though the rain is not what we wanted, our pictures were going to turn out beautiful. She was right! They are so beautiful and you can’t even tell how wet and cold it was! She was by far the best decision we made for our wedding day!"
"From start to finish Candi Leonard Photography was everything I could have wished for! She did a great job getting to know us and capturing engagement, bridal and wedding photos that are simply magnificent! Prior to our engagement photos, she sent out a gorgeous book that not only helped guide me through choosing outfits for our sessions and the wedding, it also provided timelines that assisted in planning our wedding day. Her tasteful choice of photography is certainly a beautiful art. We are still receiving complements on her work. Candi and her husband both are so friendly, professional, and passionate about what they do. You certainly will not regret going with them for your event!"
"Pictures were top priority of our wedding day. I wanted to be able to look back a relive that day as many times as I wanted or needed. Candi gives you that gift. Not only were the pictures beautiful, the pleasure of meeting her and her husband was beautiful. They are such wonderful people. They put their heart and soul into what they do. They make you feel at ease on the most important day of your life. That's a gift in itself. Candi and her husband gave us so much on that day and even after. She is an inspiration. I was able to see multiple pictures on her blog while I was on my honeymoon! I was not expecting to be able to see any so quickly ! When you work with Candi and her husband, you get more than flawless, unique, perfect pictures, you get an experience that inspires you for a lifetime."
"Candi is absolutely amazing! She is beyond talented and her photography style is beautiful. Her photos are light, airy and that of a dream. She is also such a pleasure to work with. She made being in front of the camera so easy. The entire experience with her was wonderful. She genuinely loves what she does & it shows. I am so in love with my photos!"
"Living out of state, we had never met Candi, but there was something about her communication and style that really stood out. Since we had a very nontraditional "wedding", Candi was happy to customize a package that worked for our specific needs. Candi truly cares about her couples, and what they deem important in photographs. I want to get married all over again just to have more of CLP's photos!"
"I cannot say enough about our photographer, Candi Leonard. Being a photographer myself, I spent a lot of time finding the perfect photographer for our engagement pictures and wedding. Not only did she do an amazing job at my wedding, she had a blog post with about 50 images all ready within 2-3 days of my wedding!! She also delivered my ENTIRE wedding gallery within TWO WEEKS!!! That’s unheard of."
"From the moment I saw Candi's work, I knew I'd want Candi it capture my wedding. From the moment we met Candi, I knew we had made the right choice! She was personable, professional and really truly cared about your vision for your portraits and wedding day. Our wedding day it rained but Candi helped ease my nerves that we would get our wedding portraits despite the weather. Candi and her husband Travis are an amazing duo...they were so relaxed and just natural at all that they do. They were such troopers all day in the rain getting those perfect shots! It was truly an honor and pleasure have them photograph our wedding."
