Hi, and thanks for stopping by to take a look at our work. I'm Karen Leah, a wedding, event, and portrait photographer in the Los Angeles area. My husband, Brian (he's the one with the cute accent you might hear when you call) and I run Karen Leah Photography.

Photography is something I was absolutely born to do. From the time I was in elementary school running around with my Mom 's little 110 film camera, to the time I met and married another photographer; this is it ... there is nothing better than capturing just the right moment and getting to relive them over and over again. Please enjoy the photos on my blog as much as I enjoyed creating them and being a part of these moments and memories. We look forward to hearing from you.

I love the holiday season. I love seeing families change and grow each year. I love watching family dynamics and getting to know new families each year. And each year I try and challenge myself to find new and fabulous locations in our amazing city; but still using some of my classic and favorite areas. I like to wait a nice, safe while before posting holiday images – especially with the popularity of new years cards!

I absolutely LOVE Los Encinos:

And one of my favorite things EVER to do as a photographer is to photograph the beautiful children of my former bridal couples!

OK, I know I said Los Angeles earlier, but for one of my favorite families ever, I look forward to my Orange County trips!

Inn of the Seventh Ray Wedding ~ Eric and Len

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

I met Eric and Len about a month before their celebration at Inn Of The Seventh Ray Weddings. The evening was perfect and absolutely flew by for us; so I can’t imagine how quickly it went for them. The best thing about working with artists is that there’s never a need to explain why a photo needs to be done in certain light-they knew what I was going to say before I could even finish the sentence! :-) Also, as an added bonus, Holly and the staff at the Inn were amazing to work with! We truly loved being a part of such a special evening!

Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church Wedding ~ Erica and Hernan

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

I have a very soft spot for intimate weddings. Brian and I had one here, and one where he’s from. And as a photographer, there’s something so meaningful about being a part of such a close-knit celebration. Erica and Hernan also appealed to the type-A personality that I have a teeny wee bit of :-) They set a perfect timeline, were actively involved in selecting just the perfect spot for photos (Brand Library & Art Center) after their beautiful ceremony at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, Hollywood and their itinerary was organizational gold for me. Their wedding day was made perfect by a reception at Redbird at Cathedral of Saint Vibiana. (and a special thanks to the team there for giving us access to some stunning spots)! Erica and Hernan, thank you for having me as a part of such a romantic, and personal celebration!

Ventura Wedding Photographer

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

I am so excited to share this wedding. I love experiencing the enthusiasm for a wedding with couple. This bride’s energy and enthusiasm for her wedding was so exciting to be a part of! She also appealed to my Type-A planner personality. She was organized, had a classic, romantic vision for her day; and her coordinator, Elizabeth was brilliant in helping her execute this!
