“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”

Welcome to Leah Haraden Photography, Wedding Photographer in Maine
Hi, I'm a wedding and portrait photographer originally from Portland, Maine, living in Dresden, Maine, who has a flair for capturing beautiful light and impeccable compositions at a moments notice.
I am a storyteller with my camera and I love uncovering my couple's stories in as much detail as i can through my lens. My photography is a blend of documentary and editorial style photography. I am a fan of dramatic lighting and life's emotions. I love photographing people on one of the happiest days of their lives.
Anything I can do to help set my couples at ease, I do it.
The fun for me starts when I can stand back and capture the magic of the day as it unfolds before me.
When I am not holding a camera in my hand, I am teaching photography in Central Maine and the Midcoast Maine area. I am a member of Maine PPA (Maine Chapter of Professional Photographers of America). My work has been published and exhibited from Maine to Washington. Recently, one of my images was selected for the prestigious Maine Photography Show in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.
I enjoy other aspects of photography including landscapes and nature photography. My hobby is collecting antique cameras and adapting them to available film stocks. I enjoy painting and playing the guitar and singing with friends once a week. I am married and have two grown sons who have made me a very proud mom.
I have been involved in various charitable organizations including the Red Cross of Maine. I have the best job in the world and i can't think of a better place to be working as a wedding photographer.
