Who We Are
About Leah Marie Photography
Leah and I (Marcella) are lucky enough to live in beautiful Temecula, California surrounded by beautiful vineyards and lots of wineries and get to help celebrate and capture one of the most special days in a couple’s life.
We met through our husbands quite a few years ago and quickly became friends. It was our love for photography and our passion for people, Starbucks and not-so-reality TV that made our business partnership inevitable.
Since then we have grown our company to offer multiple services while holding true to our core values and commitment to authentically tell every couple’s story. We want our couples to not only remember the events of their day, but to be able to relive the emotion time and time again.
Here at Leah Marie Photography we photograph in a style where technical skill, artistic vision and emotion come together. We believe in natural light, a simple setting, good people and real emotion are the purest ingredients that make the best photographs.
We also have an incredible team who are here to not only help keep our business running smoothly, but to guide you on your wedding photography journey to tell your lovestory. You might not meet them, but they are there answering emails, editing photos or sharing snippets of our lives on Instagram.
Check out all of our galleries and our blog posts to get to know us and the Leah Marie Photography experience. If you like what you see, we would love for you to get in contact with us so we can schedule a time to meet up with you and hear all about your wedding plans!!

Our Photography Team
Alienum phaedrum torquatos neceu
Hi I’m Leah! I started LMP 14 years ago and it has since grown into a team of amazing friends. The company was designed around how I like to shop. I love high end brands for a fraction of the price. I truly believe that amazing photography does not have to break the bank. If you asked my team they would probably say I am the dreamer of the group, slightly ADD and always coming up with the next crazy idea. I don’t take myself to seriously and I can multitask with the best of them. I thrive off of the high pressure atmosphere weddings can bring and I love making magic with camera no matter what situation I am in. When I’m not shooting weddings I’m hanging out with my hubby and 4 adorable kids. I love coffee and espresso… so much that I want to open an espresso tasting room here in wine country. I am a therapeutic shopper and can be found wandering the isles of Target or Home Goods on any given day. I LOVE donuts and poke… but if I had to chose a favorite meal it would be corned beef and cabbage. Weddings are my passion and after 14 years of being a photographer I still cry during first looks and father daughter dances. It never gets old.
Hey! I’m Marcella and I’ve been with Leah Marie Photography for 11 years. I started my photography career at Picture People back in the day and quickly figured out that I prefer to be outdoors and on location as opposed to in studio. My love for weddings was instant and I can’t imagine doing anything else. My favorite part of the day are romantics. I love getting to create beautiful photos of our couples that they will look back on for years to come. When I’m not shooting weddings, you can find me hanging with my hubby and our four kiddos, hiking, camping, at some sporting event, reading or traveling. Can’t wait to see you on your day!!
Hi, I’m Beth! I’m a Lead Photographer for LMP and the Studio. I love, LOVE. I love romance and everything that goes along with the celebration of that love. I shot my first wedding on film, yes film, in 2001. So that means I’ve been shooting weddings for 20 years!!!! I have four boys ages, 16, 14, 10 and 7.5. I love our crazy chaotic house. There is never a dull moment. Having such large amounts of testosterone in my home, I relish in all things pretty that is a wedding. I love all the details that go into that special day, but what I love most, is that first look. There’s nothing like the first time the couple meet eyes. Every time I filled with emotion.
It’s that feeling of love and romance that keeps me coming back to weddings. Each one is a new experience and takes on a life of its own. Thanks for reading a few fun facts about me. I hope to see you at your wedding!
We loved working with them for our wedding day for both photo and video! Our lead photographer Beth was amazing! Her and the team were super efficient and organized. From the first time we met with Marcella during our consultation appointment, all throughout the process and on our big day, they provided a great level of service and professionalism.
Wow! Just Wow! When I met with Leah she was very friendly, open and welcoming. She sounded so excited to be a part of our day. I received multiple follow up emails and the questionnaires they send out, make everything so seamless and easy the day of. I can not be happier with how organized they were and how quickly I received my photos (I got them in 3 weeks!!) I also got their photo booth as an add on (not included with package). The day of, the photographer learned all my wedding party's names by HEART. Who does that? Amazing and couldn't be happier with the turn out. They even reminded me of certain photos I had asked for. Super excited!
I have nothing but amazing things to say about Leah and her team! Leah was my photographer, and her kindness and calm personality made my day so much easier. She has a way of making those nerves go away! One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was hiring Leah as our photographer! Her professionalism and skill truly stands out and she knows how to pull together a big group while still having fun! After our big day, I had other vendors complimenting me on her. Do yourself a favor, hire Leah and her team!!
