    I did a lot of research on photographers before my wedding and fell in love with the way Sakura Photography tells a story with their photos and their style is just so elegant and beautiful. I emailed them for pricing and was pleased with their quick response and suggestions! Since I had a small wedding of 45 she suggested just having one of them shoot the wedding instead of two. Leslie was amazing from the first email to the day of and beyond! She was so easy to talk to and fun! We met for coffee before the wedding as I was from out of town and she was so accommodating and met me where I was having my dress fitted! She was so laid back and I knew she'd be a great fit! The day of the wedding she was so helpful in getting those great shots and letting us know how she'd like us to be. She was all over our venue taking wonderful photos and fit in well with everyone they all thought she was so great! Her presence at my wedding was such a positive one it just really made the day!

    Wow! We love the photos. They look absolutely stunning and breathtaking. You and Mark definitely captured those special moments.....especially the one where I was getting emotional. I swear there was dust in the air. Jk. You guys are friendly to deal with, professional and also made the day fun, accommodating, and the time just flew. Thank you so much for delivering more than what we expected. You two have a lot of skill and are very talented.

    We absolutely loved all the work done by Leslie. We found Sakura through a friend's referral, and from the day we contacted her, she was helpful, responsive and flexible. Her touch-screen photobooth was fantastic. Everyone had so much fun and quickly became a must-do activity during our event. The photos that she took during the ceremony are absolutely gorgeous. We felt proud and grateful to Leslie when we sent off pictures to the guests. She was never intrusive with picture taking during the event.. It has been 1 month since the event, and people still talk about Leslie's photobooth pictures that they went home with, and the great pictures of themselves that we sent by e-mail at a later date. My friends who were at the reception and are planning to have a wedding soon are going to use Leslie's service. We strongly recommend her business to anyone who is looking for a photographer with great insight, responsibility and professionalism at a very reasonable rate.

    Leslie and Mark were such a fun couple. They made our photo session so much fun (and my husband and I are definitely not photo people). They have a way of capturing the moments very well and the pictures turn out very natural. Highly recommend them.

    Leslie and Mark are so incredibly talented! We just got our shots back and they are amazing! They manage to capture moments as they happen, including really great shots of all our guests - smiling, laughing, crying - you name it! (This was very important to us since we were too busy to pay attention to our guests!) On top of that, the creative/posed shots are phenomenal. (Sometimes you find photographers who are only good at one or the other - but not with these guys!) To top it off, Leslie and Mark themselves are amazing to work with. They are laid back, but at the same time will take charge to get you amazing shots (and to make you feel comfortable so they don't seem fake or rehearsed). We also did the photobooth which was a HUGE hit! I can't recommend them enough!

    Leslie and Mark are absolutely incredible! They did our engagement photos, wedding photos, and photobooth for our wedding. They are very professional while having a relaxed no stress attitude. It's exactly what you need in the weeks leading up to the wedding when you need your vendors not to cause you stress! And spending a few minutes on their website or blog will show you how talented they are and what amazing work they do. A friend of mine (who is also a photographer) refers to them as 'wizards' because of some of the amazing shots they get! :)
    Finally, if you're hesitant about adding the photobooth - trust me and just do it! It was a blast and people absolutely loved it. We were worried it wouldn't be worth it with only 45 guests, but it was well-used and looking at the pictures from the photobooth after we got back from our honeymoon was hilarious!
