Hello All! My name is Leo Moranti and I am a destination wedding photographer here in Los Angeles, California. I am happy to say that as of 2012, I am also now an International Photographer having shot my first wedding in Costa Rica!
Do you remember the old Kodak 110 cameras? Well that's where I started and I have loved photography every since. Little did I know then where it would lead. As most kids do, I have done a lot of different things trying to figure out what I wanted to do, but it has always led right back to photography.
I started my professional career traveling the United States taking photos on a 35mm Film camera (Wow am I that old?) of students at Martial Arts studios. The pictures were standard photographs much like those you got in school....we had a set number of poses we would have each student do and inevitably at EVERY studio, the Master got to do wild flying kick pictures. It was fun and the travel was as well but it wasn't what I wanted to do. I left the photography world for the Army.
After the Army, I attended the New York Institute of Photography and I was again hooked and this time for good!
I look for the beauty in everything and try to capture my interpretation of that beauty. I absolutely LOVE to photograph weddings. There is always a raw emotion and I am lucky enough to be the one trusted to be there to capture it. I approach weddings as "what would I want to look back on in 10-15 years?" "What do I wish my wedding album looked like?" Most importantly, I look to how best tell the story of the day in my images.
