About this Vendor

Artistic, Creative, and FUN!

We are California natives in an Oklahoma world. We love capturing the sparkle and shine of a wedding day and crafting beautiful images from your experiences. We are a team, and very quickly discovered that there is a HUGE benefit to having two photographers on your wedding day. It adds variety to your wedding portfolio, and a different point of view. It's also a great use of your time, as we get twice as much done! Our photos can be described as "candid, artistic, expertly lit, clear, and colorful." These words come from the wonderful clients that have hired us. I'd be more than happy to meet with you, and show you full galleries of different weddings so that you can get a better idea of how your day could be captured. We would love to work with you! I look forward to meeting you!

Two words, the best! There's not enough text space here for me to tell you what a pleasure it was working with Leia and her husband Shane. They are so passionate about capturing the most beautiful moments and they make you feel so special, even though they probably photograph... Read More people daily. I feel like my entire wedding experience was captured perfectly. The day was magical, but as many people know, weddings go by so fast. It wasn't until I saw our pictures, that I realized I missed some of the details that day, but Leia made it possible for me to relive them. Every picture had a purpose. I would highly recommend Leia Smethurst Photography for weddings and more. I have also done a gym photoshoot with Leia, casual family pics and a lifestyle shoot. Every time I see the pictures we took, I'm floored about how incredible they are. Plus, Leia is excellent about getting pictures edited and uploaded in a timely manner. Again, great service and superb quality! Thanks for documenting so many monumental moments for our family Leia! You rock.

We met with several photographers in the area, but Leia seemed to care more about the details of our day, and how we were going to fit all of our... Read More photography in, rather than trying to upsell us on an album we didn't want. Her customer service is superior, as she cared about how I felt, and what my husband and I really wanted.

We can definitely, without a doubt see why she is so in-demand, and considered such a value to so many past clients. She really took care of us, and I can't thank her and her husband enough. On top of that, less than 2 weeks after the wedding, we got access to our beautiful online gallery. She knows her stuff! Thanks girl!
