Weddings are events we remember for a lifetime, and photos can capture moments on your wedding day to preserve beauty and relive memories for years to come. I want to get to know each client beforehand to learn what is most important to photograph on their wedding day. I strive to take creative and traditional photos of the bride and groom and their families as well as candid photos of the wedding guests while preparing for and celebrating after the ceremony. I photograph all the details of the day including rings, dress, flowers, and other personal touches.

* Hourly rates are available for shorter weddings and elopements

Full-day coverage: $2,800

The full-day base package includes:

  • 1-hour engagement session- we will meet up, take some photos, and have a chance to get to know each other before your big day

  • Up to 8 hours of photography coverage on your wedding day

  • Password-protected web gallery of hand-edited photos you can view, share, and purchase online

  • Digital download of  200+ high-resolution individually hand-edited digital files to print and enjoy on your own

  • Additional hours can be added at an hourly rate and details can be tailored to meet the needs of your celebration.

Lifestyle Sessions

Photo sessions should be fun! I love planning leisurely strolls through beautiful country, more adventurous hikes, climbing trips and relaxed evenings in your backyard to provide your family with a snapshot in time that will last for generations. The Eastern Sierra is beautiful in all seasons. I plan sessions in the awe-inspiring buttermilk country in winter and spring, meadows with wildflowers in the summer, and mountains with aspen groves in the fall.  I scout each location a few days before planned sessions to assess the light, safety, weather, and overall appropriateness of each site for all of my clients. I'm always up for new locations and creative ideas, so don’t hesitate to suggest a favorite spot.

Birth Photography, “First 48”, Newborn Photography, and Baby’s first year discount plans

I am starting to offer sessions based around labor, delivery, birth, and the first 48 hours of your newborn’s life outside to capture this special time for your family. There is so much emotion surrounding birth, and I want to record those moments for you, telling the story of your labor, delivery, and baby’s first moments or days in photos. My birth photography will be based on the requests and needs of each family. This is a very intimate time for the mother and her support team, and my goal is to document the birth process in a professional and respectful way.

Please contact me directly to discuss booking Amy Leist Photography for hospital or home birth photography, a “first 48” session at a hospital or in your home, or a lifestyle newborn session within 10 days of your child’s birth. I also offer Baby’s first year discount plans….if you would like several shoots to document your child’s first year, you can receive a substantial discount on each shoot when booking through this package.
