Wedding photography in Asheville, The Southeast, and wherever hearts roam
as well as who's there to document it
the low down
I'm Monica Leavell, a non-conventional intimate wedding photographer, based in the mountains of Asheville & the Appalachians. Traveling worldwide for destination weddings in The PNW, Colorado, & beyond.
I am a hopeless romantic who loves to travel, never met an animal I didn’t love, or a stranger I couldn’t have a conversation with.
You will find me in the background fighting tears during the first dances but at your side in a second with bobby-pins, equipment, food, water, whatever else may be required.
I believe everyone has a story to share — your wedding day should reflect that story. I’m excited and humbled to know you’re considering sharing that day with me. I would love to hear from you!
My favorite stories to tell are the intimate unions with the focus on celebrating two people madly in love. I’m there not only to take photos but to help make your day stress-free, allowing you to focus on being fully present during this amazing time in your life. From the planning stages until your photos are delivered, I've got your back.

The Album Philosophy
Printing our memories is so so important. It's a message we've heard, but has it truly sunk in for you? Do you print your images?
After having recognized an album’s true beauty and importance in our lives over the years as a photographer, I now offer them in every wedding collection. When you hire me, you not only believe in me to rightfully document your most important moments, you’re trusting in me to curate an album as unique as you and your story.
My goal is to put an album into each and every client's hands. Let me tell your story the same way.
After almost two years of the world being stuck at home, there has been a rekindling of the great outdoors. Being outside recharges the spirit, brings hope and stability into life. That same spirit is being seen in the photography industry as things start to open again and weddings are back on the books. With that in mind, I’m super excited for this newest line of albums that fit perfectly within the Monica Leavell Photo brand and experience.
In this day and age, we all know that digital files are great. But they aren’t forever. Photos really come to life when they are printed. They not only become richer but more realistic when you can actually hold them in your hands. That’s the moment they truly become more than colors printed on a paper.

JUST REMEMBER, THE CAKE GETS EATEN, ALL THE GUESTS WILL LEAVE, AND THE FLOWERS WILL DIE.
BUT THE PHOTOS OF YOUR MOST IMPORTANT DAY WILL LAST
