The best events go by in a flash. Here’s a way to make those precious, fleeing moments last.

Event Photography — Professional images to celebrate and remember special times. 

Life is made up of moments. Isn’t it funny how the smallest ones can have the biggest impact? When I photograph events, I don’t just train my camera on the flowers and take a few pictures of the cake. Don’t worry, I’ll document those too — but I view my role a little differently from the way that most event photographers see it.

As a Family Legacy Curator, I intentionally curate images that tell the entire story of a day. From the expression on a new graduate's face to the gift that made the mother-to-be burst into tears, no detail escapes my lens. Because in the end, it’s these little details that make up the big, beautiful picture of our lives. 

Even the smallest gatherings have huge meaning in our lives.   

By the time your special day arrives, you and your family deserve to relax and take it all in — without having to worry about snapping photographs, and wrangling guests to pose for them. 

I take pride in making my clients feel like their event is in safe hands, being documented and preserved even as the moments fly past. (And the best ones always do.) I capture the small details that make up a big day, and pay close attention to your special requests. 

But most of all, I bring my storytellers’ heart to each event I document. I view each gathering — large or small, casual or formal — as a valuable part of your family’s story.

Whether it’s a family reunion with 200 guests or a baby shower for 12, planning an event takes effort (and some major RSVP-chasing). 

Enjoy every detail of your special day, and leave the documentation to me. (I’ll even get your guests to pose, and not uncomfortably!)

 And as your family legacy curator, I’ll make sure that your story gets told in the most vivid, captivating, and impactful way possible. 

I’m honored to have so many delighted clients.

“Lesly’s warm and bubbly personality put us at ease on the day of our actual photo session and made us feel comfortable and happy in front of the camera. We were pleasantly surprised when we got our previews and then our complete gallery much earlier than anticipated. And the photos...truly gorgeous, so much more beautiful than we ever dreamed of getting. We are just so happy with the whole experience and, especially, the beautiful photos we will cherish for a lifetime.”

- Chrsitian Lopez

“Getting to know Lesly while she took our photos was fantastic. She took the time to get to know us while sharing her own story. Our families have absolutely loved seeing the photos that Lesly took.”

Event Experience

Why the Event Experience? It’s for you if… 
  • You want professional documentation of a milestone event. 
  • You want to keep your family photo album fresh and updated.
  • You want professional images of your family to pass on from one generation to the next.
  • You want your special memories to last for decades after the event has passed. 
  • You want to work with a photographer who can take the documentation one step further, recording video interviews that will last a lifetime.

What’s Included in the Event Experience
  • One photographer at your event for four hours.
  • One video journalist recording interviews of you and your loved ones for your Family Time Capsule.
  • A 20+ minute video interview compilation.
  • 200+ professionally edited images after the event.
  • A keepsake, engraved-glass USB so you can easily store and share your photos. 

Whether it’s a quinceanera, baby shower, sweet sixteen, birthday party, graduation, bar mitzvah, family reunion, or any special occasion you’re celebrating with loved ones, you’ll want to be present for it. Leave the documentation to me! You and your family will have a professional photographer’s full attention, so you can relax and enjoy your day. 

After your event, you’ll have beautifully edited images to cherish for years to come. And I don’t just offer photographs: If you choose, I can record video interviews with your loved ones. Using my extensive training in a newsroom, I’ll turn your event into a story that will have a ripple of impact for decades to come. 

The Investment

After all that goes into planning an event — creating a menu, making up the guest list, and chasing those RSVPs — documentation can become an afterthought. I may be biased, but hear me when I say this: Documentation is not the least important part of an event…It's the most!

Special memories are meant to be shared and savored. If you invest in lovingly preserving them, you can turn your memories into a living family heirloom. There’s no better way to ensure your event’s lasting impact than by partnering with a professional photographer and videographer who will thoughtfully document every detail of your special day, in a medium that never fades.
