In Response to Wedding Stress, Leise Jones Photography Takes Collaborative Approach With Clients
BOSTON — For couples planning to get married in 2019, the holiday season also means engagement season. According to WeddingWire’s 2018 Newlywed Report, Christmas Day is the most popular day to pop the question, with nearly 40 percent of all engagements happening between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day.
This exciting time can turn stressful, however, without the right wedding resources and consultants. Leise Jones, Boston-based wedding photographer, focuses on helping couples experience a seamless, stress-free wedding day through a highly personalized and collaborative approach to wedding photography. Caring for couples while creating authentic, natural-looking photos is at the heart of her approach.
The award-winning event and portrait photographer has been helping couples feel comfortable and confident since 2009, resulting in thousands of effortless and authentic wedding photos. She advises newly engaged couples to look for vendors who are well-versed in handling surprises and have a reputation for supporting clients.
“I’ve been shooting weddings for a decade so I know to expect the unexpected,” said Jones. “As the person who spends the most time with the couple on their special day, I’m in the best position to handle surprises. That’s why I do whatever I can to help my clients relax and be themselves so they can truly enjoy the day, and I can capture the real joy that shines through.”
Matt Kurkowski, of East Boston, agrees on the value of Jones’ approach and philosophy.
“We had a wedding full of people who are notably and unashamedly camera-shy,” he said. “Finding a photographer who gets us, has a great energy and knows how to deal with tricky subjects was most important to us. Leise is that photographer, hands-down.”
Jones becomes a supportive teammate for each client. She’s been known to bustle dresses, pin on boutonnieres, sew on a lost button and tell people, “Just be yourself, and I’ll do the rest,” so that they feel comfortable and authentic in front of the camera. Clients describe her as honest, caring, professional and unobtrusive; traits that consistently earn her five-star reviews on WeddingWire and Yelp, as well as the Couples’ Choice Award in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
“Leise coached us through the whole process, captured the most beautiful wedding photos, edited them and got them back to us with such a quick turnaround. She takes the time to get to know you and what your story is. To me, that is the making of the perfect wedding photographer,” said Jessica Jones, of Silver Spring, Maryland.
