ABOUT ME

Behind the Lens

I'm a forever artist who finds great joy in creating and capturing connection and beauty wherever I go.

HI THERE,

I'm Leslie

I’m a French-American luxury wedding photographer with two adorable (but wild spirited) daughters born in different countries, a handsome English husband and a goofy old cat from Florida.

My love for travel has led me to call Paris, Orlando, Macon, St. Augustine, Sarasota, Barcelona, London and Provence home (it’s where the heart is though right!?)

I didn't always have a camera in my hands. In fact, a little over a decade ago you would have found me on the golf course chasing birdies rather than brides (my husband came up with that one, he loves a cheesy line!). Prior to discovering my passion for photography, I pursued a career as a top junior golfer in France and attended university in Florida on a golf scholarship.
I loved being an athlete, don’t get me wrong, but my creative side was always battling to come out. 

At the age of 22 I shot my first wedding with a second-hand camera bought on eBay. That Canon proved to be my one way ticket towards the freedom to do what I loved. Through my art, I hope to tell the stories of the unique people and places I capture, and to preserve precious memories for generations to come. 


I'm an animal lover, a chocoholic, eternally curious, afraid of elevators and an enthusiast for deep conversations (just not in an elevator!)

Who am I ?

01

'MOMMY' or 'MAMAN' 

No matter what language my girls want to use, this is the best title I have.

02

CULTURAL CHAMELEON 

I moved to Florida from Paris when I was 12 without speaking a word of English. Now I feel part French, part American and part all the other places I’ve lived.

03

Sensitive soul

I have an uncanny ability to sense the way people are feeling and be ready to capture moments as they happen.

04

Golf girl

While it seems like a lifetime ago, but I once played off scratch and am a qualified teaching professional.

05

Allergic to small talk

Let's discuss the meaning of life, faraway galaxies, your favourite scents, your childhood, what keeps you awake at night and gets you out of bed in the morning.

I love people with depth and who speak with emotion from a mind as busy as mine :-)

THE MEN IN MY LIFE

Adam was the first person I met at college and we’ve followed each other’s dreams around the world ever since. He's my better half and I could never do life without him.

Our fluffy best friend has come with us everywhere we've lived since 2010 and even has his own pet passport. Just the thought of living life one day without our ginger bestie makes me tear up.
