Completely faultless!!

We could not recommend Leyla enough, from booking to getting the photos back she has been amazing! We first booked Leyla in August for our 6-month turnaround wedding and from our first pre-wedding shoot and meeting Leyla we knew from how at ease she made us that we had made the right choice! Fast forward to the lead up to the wedding, Leyla was always open to any questions or able to give us any advice or things to consider. On the day, Leyla was absolutely amazing and we really couldn’t have asked for anything more, on the day and after the event we had many of our guests commenting on how amazing and friendly our photographer had been! To wake up to see some sneak peeks the next day was amazing and just made us even more excited for our complete album to be ready. Upon receiving our pictures, we spent the evening smiling and laughing as we reminisced all the special moments that Leyla had seamlessly caught. I really cannot recommend Leyla enough to anyone. Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special and memorable!
