We are SO GLAD we hired Leif Brandt Photography for our wedding!!! The photos turned out amazing - great quality and variety - and were delivered quicker than we had expected! He did a great job directing our wedding party and family, including my nephew who isn't even 2 years old. Leif was personable and professional, as well as responsive via email regarding any questions we had pre / post wedding. I would highly recommend Leif Brandt Photography!!! More...

Not only were Leif's photos perfect, he also was so kind and helpful regarding the entire wedding process. He provided a timeline I could use as a starting place for the day, and gave other suggestions when I was stumped that were so helpful. He captured so many wonderful moments. Would highly recommend!

The now-husband and I asked Leif to take our engagement and wedding photos after seeing him work his magic at multiple weddings of our friends! Leif is such a pro and really listened to our ideas but also had even better ideas of his own for where we should go/ what shots would look amazing (because seriously.. I don't know!!) We were able to do multiple outfits and locations for the engagement session and Leif perfectly captured sweet natural moments of us that I LOVE! I don't feel that I am that photogenic and can also be a little shy, but Leif had such a perfect way of directing us that didn't feel awkward or forced- it was so fun!! Our wedding day was just as amazing! Leif came early to multiple locations to get special pics of everyone getting ready, got individual shots of each bridesmaid and groomsmen (you're welcome, wedding party) had the patience of a saint through the various required family photos, captured the perfect sneaky shots of guests during the ceremony AND the reception (Like Gramps starting the conga line!) Seriously I felt like Leif was my eyes the whole night- since especially as the bride I hardly remember getting to speak to anyone for more than 5 minutes. Looking back on these pictures is the perfect memory of our special day!ALLLLL of this awesomeness and we were just so impressed by the value. As a youngish couple we wanted to be respectful of our wedding budget and Leif was right on board with us as far as finances, what we wanted to spend, and what things we felt we could do without. There was never a feeling of pushiness or awkwardness the whole time with a.n.y.t.h.i.n.g. You are not going to find a nicer guy with better skills - MONEY WELL SPENT PEOPLE- Leif is the package deal! More...

Not sure where to even start with how exceptional Leif's work is and how incredibly awesome he is!! When looking around for photographers, he stood out to us with his professionalism. He was quick to respond and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. After our initial meeting, we met Leif for our engagement session up in Fallbrook (the package we selected came with a complimentary engagement session). Again, he made us feel so comfortable and really knows his stuff! He met us at 5:00am so we could get the sunrise into our shots (his idea) and we absolutely loved them! Not only did he capture some amazing shots, but he bought us breakfast and a mimosa to break the ice and calm our nerves.From the day we signed the contract to the day of the wedding, there were so many occasions where we recognized how grateful we were to have Leif apart of our lives! He sent us small, but very thoughtful gifts and he created a timeline for us that made sure we would capture all the shots we really wanted. On our wedding day, he really captured our special day! One of my initial concerns was only having one photographer, but I can say Leif is all you need. He got shots from every angle and had so many great photos to choose from. I never saw him running around once during our wedding, but he captured lots of amazing candid shots. (which is what we love). We can honestly say, he is the best photographer around and if you're looking for someone, Leif is the man! More...

Are you considering Leif as your photographer? BOOK HIM.

He is incredibly personable and from the first interaction we had to the last, my husband and I couldn't stop smiling. We agreed that he was our favorite vendor from the entire wedding!
Leif is organized and professional, but what really sets him apart is how much he cares. I felt like he was personally invested in not just our wedding but in our relationship being successful. He was easy to talk to about what we wanted and what we didn't want in terms of posed photos.

His skills are mind blowing and everyone is still talking about all the gorgeous photos that he took. I could not be happier with choosing him as my photographer. He will make your wedding day easy, comfortable, and he won't give you any additional stress- in fact, you'll probably get relieved when you see him because you know he's going to take care of you.

Leif is AWESOME!! I will let his images speak for themselves in regards to his talent, but let me tell you how great he is to work with! It was important to us to choose a photographer who we "clicked" with, I wanted to be sure we were comfortable with and liked the personality of the photographer we would be working so closely with on such an important day. When we met with Leif, we knew we were already impressed by his photographs but we instantly loved his laid back but professional attitude. You could just tell he is passionate about what he does. He was involved and thoughtful throughout the entire planning process, and was just wonderful on the day of the wedding. He arrived early and everything was so organized, relaxed and on schedule. He saved the day when he knew how to tie a bow tie, when my groom and groomsmen did not :) Our families raved about how wonderful he was for weeks after the wedding and how the obligatory post ceremony photos were virtually painless. Our images were ready for viewing by the time we returned from our honeymoon, and I can't even begin to tell you how much I love them! I look at them often and am so grateful he was there to capture the best day of our lives so perfectly. More...

Leif was hands down the best vendor we worked with for our wedding. He was incredibly professional and honest in our communications and the photos were mesmerizing. I tell people all the time if you are going to splurge in one aspect of your wedding, it should be the photographer. The day is so fast and such a whirlwind you seriously need the photos to remember it all. I would chose Leif for every photographic event for the rest of my life. More...

Hiring a photographer was one of our most important priorities and hiring Leif was the absolute BEST decision we made!!! We LOVE his style of photography, and what we saw on his website is what we got for our engagement photos and wedding day...actually even better than expected! Leif was so responsive to all my emails and always friendly and fun to work with. He came all the way out to Palos Verdes for our engagement photo shoot and was willing to photograph us with a Delorean, a little unconventional for engagement photos, but he was ridiculously amazing. On our wedding day, we were so comfortable with him and had a blast. Bonus is that he got ALL of our photos to us SO FAST. Less than a month later and we are almost done editing our photo album with him, and he has been so great in meeting all my requests. I could go on and on, but I'll stop here so you can book him now!

Leif is amazing!!! Choosing a photographer can be tricky business but Leif never ceased to amaze us. Not only is he responsive, professional, and thorough - he is kind, engaging and comfortable to be around.

Leif did a lot of research to help us get be particular "scenic vibe" we were looking for as a backdrop for our pictures. He found breathtaking spots in Sedona for us, and we were absolutely thrilled with our pictures. He is also very quick at getting the photos back (I was expecting to wait months for them), and when we did get them back they came in this awesome engraved box!

We were THRILLED with our photos and with Leif and would recommend him to anyone!

Leif is very genuine and warm person who takes great deal of pride in his work. He's a very thoughtful and talented photographer. Our first choice for an engagement photo location was pretty far away, Leif and his wife were very cool about making the full-day trip to accommodate the request. The whole experience of working with Leif seemed more like working with a friend than a "vendor". We highly recommend his services to anyone who is seeking the best. More...

Leif was amazing to work with!! My husband and I had never taken professional photos together and Leif made us feel very comfortable. He did our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn't be happier. He went above and beyond what we agreed on and showed up early to both events. Our photos all came out amazing. He even made sure we got any poses we wanted in additional to all his ideas. I highly recommend him!! More...

Leif is amazing!! We had him for our engagement photos and our wedding day. We couldn't have picked a better person to photograph our big day. He is not only is quick to get back to you about any questions, he also make sure your needs are met in every aspect. He capture our day just perfectly and was fun and easy to work with. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for their wedding day and/or engagement photographer. He is creative in the way he takes his photos and is amazing at capturing the moment. We decided to only have 1 photographer to help with our budget, and it looks like we had two since he capture our day in so many angles and visions. More...

From the first email we sent to Leif, he was amazing. His photography is amazing and he is organized, detailed, and friendly. He is extremely thoughtful as a vendor, sending small gifts throughout the wedding process. His turn around on pictures is really fast - around a week for engagement pictures and wedding pictures.
We can't recommend him enough!

Leif Brandt is awesome to work with. Leif shot both or wedding and our engagement session. He is professional and gifted at what he does.

Leif was a class act and left everyone at it wedding feeling special. All of our vendors loved working with him as well. His work speaks for itself. Awesome!!! More...

Leif is amazing! Check out his website his work sells itself: http://www.leifbrandtphotography.com/
So instead of telling you what an amazing photographer he is, I'll let his own work show that. I will simply try to point out Leif's level of commitment and dedication, that separates him from just any ordinary photographer. After working with Leif he's not just your photographer anymore, be also a friend.

To start, as a Bride who appreciates organization Leif is the best, he covers everything! For example, prior to my wedding Leif actually met with me at my venue and we walked through the place together covering the schedule for the day, reviewing poses, places to shoot, and literally covering every possible important wedding detail. Which now after going through the wedding, you realize how important that level of commitment and organization truly was, because the day goes by so fast! What's probably even more valuable, is his expertise. He will help you think of poses or people to take photos with that you may have initially overlooked. Needless to say, weddings are crazy but because Leif is so experienced and organized, I never felt stressed, we were running behind, but Leif was able to capture everything!

He gets his work done fast! I mean really fast for both our engagement and wedding photos we seriously had the finished proofs within a little over a week, which is remarkable! Overall, I'm so grateful to Leif he was amazing to work with, and I couldn't be happier with the photographs!

Leif Brandt was the first photographer I worked with for a styled Chocolate+Coffee=LOVE inspiration photo shoot in August 2013. I can't you how great Leif's work is, because it clearly shows in his photos. I remember receiving all the photos from the shoot, I literally felt tingles, it reminded me of that day when it happened.Still to this day, his gallery receives the biggest compliments, I am very happy that I had a chance to work with Leif, and hope that we will work together on a real wedding in the future. exquisiteweddingsmagazin… link to our published photo shoot!

Leif was great! He was unbelievably easy to work with, understood our needs, and made it fun for us on a stressful yet wonderful day. I would recommend him to anyone because his pictures are the highest quality in San Diego and he is great to work with. He has done the photos for both of my in-laws and many other friends and everyone is extremely impressed with the result! More...

Leif just did our family's Christmas photos and the whole experience from start to finish was fabulous! There were a few challenges we were dealing with:a. my children are 2 and 4 so getting them to sit still and look the same way it pretty much a job on its own and b. I wanted to do the shoot inside my kitchen which means lighting is kind of an issueLeif handled it like a pro! He captured so many amazing pictures of our family. And the images have such a beautiful glow to them. His use of equipment is so skilled. He captures pictures like you would see in a magazine. Brilliant!! More...

What can I say, Leif is AMAZING!!! He was the photographer for my engagement shoot and as well for my wedding, and the photographs are absolutely beautiful. I have gotten nothing but compliments on them. I'm just one of those people who don't like getting their picture taken, but Leif made me feel so comfortable and at ease. My husband, who is way more camera shy than me, says he's never felt more comfortable than he has with Leif behind the lens.Leif was always prompt, and worked really hard to make sure all the pictures I requested were shot. He goes above and beyond to get amazing photos, and has a great eye. I've also gotten glowing compliments from other vendors who worked with him at my wedding.I can't imagine working with any other photographer from now on. Definitely check out his website and blog, you'll be blown away! More...

I began searching for a photographer for a photo shoot idea I had for my salon... I came across Leif's style of photos & I knew right away it was what I was looking for! Super creative and great colors. I was setting up a fashion forward shoot with models and Leif had never shot models before but I totally trusted that he would be able to capture the look and that he did!! I was so pleases with the photos that I am scheduling my next session with him and I know the end result will be Amazing!! I love that he is not a typical t-shirt and jeans beach photo taker!! LOL:) But creates a unique setting and shot that is perfect to capture your personality. More...
