Joyful Wedding Photography For Delighted Brides

The Leidy & Josh Experience

Leidy and Josh

Before every wedding day, Leidy and I spend weeks researching the venue, scouting out the best locations for light, and going over every detail to make sure we capture the couple, their families, and their celebration with excellence and creativity. While we love our job, we do not take it lightly! Photographing weddings is truly one of the most rewarding parts of our life! The friendships and experiences that we’ve created with our LJ Couples last far beyond the wedding day and we believe that’s how it should be! We’re excited for you to keep scrolling to learn more about how being a LJ Bride isn’t your typical photography experience; it’s so much more!

Hi there! So you are here because just got engaged to the love of your life or you’re here because you just love pretty pictures! Either way, won’t be disappointed! You’re in the right place and we are so glad you’re here!!

"Leidy and Josh made my husband and I feel very comfortable in front of the camera (which if you're not a professional model, can be a little awkward & intimidating), we had FUN at our shoot and got the pics back very quickly! They are a great team and we are very happy to not only have met them, but to have worked with them for our wedding pics!"

"If there was an option for more then 5-stars... Leidy and Josh would get them. Our original shoot location was full of people and festivals and they didn't miss a single beat. They found a new location for us on the fly and we had a blast the entire time. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!"

We don’t believe that wedding photography is one-size-fits-all! We know that LJ Brides are unique and we work VERY hard to find them! We serve a very specific type of bride who recognizes that if she wants joyful, genuine portraits of herself & her new groom, then she needs more than just pretty pictures. She needs an incredible EXPERIENCE! The first step towards working with us is determining if we are the perfect fit for you! After getting to know you online, we’ll determine if we’re a match made in heaven and then we’ll move on to the booking process! ...

Let the fun begin! After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. And don’t worry... we’ll teach you EVERYTHING! We thrive at helping our couples get comfortable and feel like themselves. After the first 20 minutes of your session, you will be pros. GUARANTEED. I’ve NEVER had a couple not feel at ease! Even if you think you’re not photogenic or if your fiancé “hates having pictures taken”, you will be killing it after 20 minutes have gone by! That’s all the time we need to get rid of nerves and start capturing the joy of this new season of your life together! After your engagement session, you’ll be featured on the LJ Blog and will also be sent your online gallery of images to download and share however you wish.

Once we’re 8 weeks out from your big day, we’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for your wedding!

You know all of those dreamy portraits, fun friend shots, and detail images that look like they are straight out of a magazine??? We work with our LJ Couples to plan their day so that they can actually have images like that of their OWN! We know how to create the perfect timeline for a photography-friendly wedding day!

It’s here! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let us get to work! We believe in telling the full story of our couples' wedding days and so we never shoot less than 7 hours. This day is going to be a blur to you and so we make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every bride needs while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & unique way. One of our favorite parts of the wedding day is our portrait time with the newlyweds and getting to meet our couple’s families and best friends!! After the wedding day, you’ll be featured on the LJ Blog the following TUESDAY! We like to share our weddings while everyone is still on cloud nine from the big day instead of keeping our couples waiting!

Step five:
Your wedding day!

Up Next: Design!

After your wedding day is over, you will receive an online gallery full of all of your wedding memories! HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of them! We encourage our LJ Couples to sit down with a glass of wine the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving their wedding day through their images! Soon after your gallery is delivered, you will receive your album design (if you ordered an album!). Congratulations on your new marriage!

Engagement  Sessions

Our complete engagement experience includes a two-hour session with two lead photographers (Leidy and Josh), up to two outfits and a Pinterest-style online gallery of retouched high-resolution digital images with the rights to share on social media, make unlimited downloads on unlimited devices and print at the place of your choice — or through our professional lab at Walgreen’s prices.

To prepare you for your engagement session, we mail our own engagement session style guide directly to your house!  Our brides absolutely love this.

The 2019 investment is $250 for Grand Rapids and the greater Grand Rapids area.  If you’d like to travel outside of Grand Rapids, we’re always up for an adventure, too! The session plus travel fee for Kalamazoo and Lansing is $400 and the greater Detroit area is $500. For destinations farther than those, please just let us know and we’ll prepare a custom travel quote for you. 

We have been together for three years and LOVE celebrating other couples' marriages even when we're not their wedding photographers, which is why we always make room for engagement shoots each season because we love them that much! 

Legacy Albums

Your first decision as an engaged couple is to set priorities for your wedding planning. You have to decide what you value most. Is it the dress? The food? The Venue? As a bride AND photographer, we believe that couples should make their photography a top priority. After the big day is over, you will leave your reception with a spouse & your pictures.... that’s it! All of that planning and preparation is over in a matter of hours! So if you’re choosing to invest in high quality photography, those images deserve a classy, elegant home after the wedding. We offer high end, leather bound Legacy Albums for our wedding clients. The images are printed straight onto the pages and the covers are wrapped with top grain leather. This is the perfect ending to The LJ Wedding Experience and it’s a keepsake that you will be showing your children and grandchildren one day!
