Life With L&J Archives - Leidy & Josh Photography
Michigan wedding photographers Leidy & Josh in Chicago for a wedding.

Wedding Regrets, What We'd Do Differently | Luxury Michigan Wedding Photographers

A wedding regret sounds like a strong emotion.  Don’t get us wrong, we absolutely loved our wedding and honestly wouldn’t change much about it.  But when we look back on our wedding day, there are just a few things we would have done differently.  As a married couple, and not necessarily as wedding photographers, we […]

Wedding Relationship Advice | Luxury Michigan Wedding Photographer

Leidy and I have a good relationship and marriage.  Like a really good relationship.  But our relationship didn’t happen that way overnight.  It required us to choose each other and continue to choose each other every day.  It requires constant nurturing and commitment.  But the fruit of this labor is one of the most rewarding […]

Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer | Leidy and Josh | Wedding photography near me-1858

Many of you already know this, but unlike other Grand Rapids wedding photographers, we limit the number of weddings we book each year.  Being an exclusive Michigan wedding photographer has nothing to do with being too busy or unable to handle the business.  But it has everything to do with providing the best possible service to […]

What We Learned From Yanni | Leidy & Josh | Wedding Photography

We jokingly say that Yanni is the background music of our lives.  In a way, he is.  His soft piano ballets are constantly playing in the background of our home.  If you don’t already know, we are big fans.  That’s right, the Greek guy with the long hair, mustache in the 80s, playing two pianos […]

West Michigan Wedding Photography | Leidy & Josh | Michigan Destination Wedding Photographers

You may have heard the advice, “Be sure to ask about a print release before you sign on with them!”  Unsure what that means?  Don’t worry, you aren’t the only one. Before we were photographers, we actually had never heard of a “print release”.  We thought if you met with a photographer and did a […]

Welcome, 2019 everyone!  We hope you are as pumped about the new year as we are.  There are so many things to look forward to and before we take a look at our 2019 New Years goals, we thought it best to first see how we did with our 2018 goals.  Without going into too […]

West Michigan Wedding Photography | Leidy & Josh | Michigan Destination Wedding Photographers

Life has a funny way of giving you not what you expect.  As a kid, my father would refer to this as life “throwing a curveball” at you.  You expect life to go right but when you least expect it, life turns left. I have thought a lot about how I wanted to write this […]

Long Lake Park Sparta Michigan Engagement Session

How It Happened “I am not sure how they found my page but look guys!” The text message buzzed while driving back from a photo shoot.  It was raining hard on a late Sunday afternoon.  The kind of rain that makes it hard to see the road.  Even with the car lights on.  We were […]
