Mark and Shauna Leonard are international award winning and internationally published photographic artists who specialize in their own brand of photography that mixes Lifestyle photography and Fashion photography. Whether they are working on an editorial assignment for a commercial client or on a portrait or wedding commission for a private client, they bring their collective talent together to go beyond the surface to capture the heart of the matter.
During their wedding commissions, their desire is to connect with their clients so they will be able to see, and then tell of, the relationship that exists between the bride and groom. The imagery that Mark and Shauna create is intended to be a constant reminder of why their clients fell in love.
During their portrait commissions, Mark and Shauna’s desire is to capture the ‘realness’ of who the person or family is. Whether it is a portrait commission to commemorate the birth of a child or to commemorate a 50th wedding anniversary, their goal is to tell of the personality of the subjects–the relationship–the real life that is being lived.
Because of the significance surrounding the events that Mark and Shauna are asked to photograph, each finished album or wall portrait becomes a customized piece of artwork–family heirlooms. And because of the level of detail that goes into each piece, Mark and Shauna limit the commissions they accept to no more than 20 weddings per year.
