About this pro

Photographs have always held great meaning to me. They connect us to the past, as well as bring us all things in the future. I believe in keeping things simple and never forcing a moment to make an image. What you do naturally is infinitely more interesting and beautiful than anything pretend. I feel an image should be able to hold the test of time and be just as beautiful in 50 years as it is today.

I am an emotional and fun photographer that uses technical knowledge to bring out the full visual potential of candid, real moments, as well as posed and photo journalistic. Working with you is a privilege not a job.

    We enjoyed your work on 8/14/14 the. Van Pelt wedding! You are a gift to brides and their family 😉

  • Livia Pope

    Lela is so creative and so great to work with. She came with her own ideas and suggestions for shots, was open to the bride's requests, and didn't mind re-doing a few to get them absolutely perfect. You can not go wrong hiring her!

    Lela is one of the most amazing photographers I have ever met!!!! She is so creative and I was so impressed with my photos...will never go to anyone else for portraits again!!!

  • Devan Polk

    She was AMAZING! She went above and beyond for making our trip from Atlanta worthwhile and even showed us around to some amazing views while taking our pictures! Highly recommend her and sad she doesn’t live closer so I can use her more often!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I'm ALWAYS trying to learn new techniques, to better my photography from a technical stand point, so that I can apply them to creating works of art for you.

How did you get started in this business?

I began as a studio artist in 1999 for a prominent portraiture photographer. Within those ten years I learned a great deal about lighting, and developed an eye for it. I continue to pursue new techniques, the passion for photography has been my driving force.

What types of customers have you worked with?

Specializing in creative light photography. Encompassing wedding and engagement photography, corporate events, children, high school seniors, professional head shots, life style journaling and family portraits.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

This Year, I have won awards for my photography, as well as being published with the Huffington Post and Nordstrom Weddings. Two years ago, I became the preferred wedding photographer at Empower Field at Mile High Stadium.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

It's important to know what type of photography you want, especially if you are going to require additional lighting, group portraits or a specific image you want and then to work ahead of time with your photographer to ensure enough time is allotted to capture the essential pictures. Communication before your event date is key to a relaxed photo session/experience no matter what the occasion!
