We are Brian and Lisa Leavell Ritchey, a husband-and-wife team of photographic artists and Certified Professional Photographers. We work seamlessly together to create the unique story of your wedding day through dramatic portraiture. Here’s how we arrived at this point…
After graduating from media arts programs at separate universities, we both moved to central Florida to begin our photography careers. As fate would have it, we moved into adjacent apartments there, soon meeting and falling in love. Engaged in 2006, we moved to Pittsburgh to be closer to Brian’s family. After our wedding in 2007, we started Leavell Photography out of our home.
While growing our business, we also took every opportunity to continue our professional photography education, eventually earning the designation of Certified Professional Photographers through submission of portfolios and rigorous written examinations. In our spare time, we also expanded our family to include sons Max in 2011 and Xander in 2014, as well as Pembroke Welsh Corgis Samantha Sterling and Hathaway Brown.
In 2013 we were excited to move Leavell Photography into studio space in downtown Bridgeville. We expanded that space six months later and are pleased to offer a full range of photographic services. We work hard to achieve our two-fold goal of providing a high-end experience and creating fine art for all our clients. We strive to exceed expectations, in the hope that we will become not only your friends, but also your photographers for life.
We are Leavell Photography, a boutique studio dedicated to giving an incredible experience as you embark on the most exciting journey of your life!
Weddings last only a day, but the memories live on for generations. That is why it is so important to find a photographer who can deliver a stunning portfolio of moments and emotion captured in time.
Your wedding portraits should reflect your individual personalities and how those manifest in your relationship. Like any living being, each relationship is unique. We aim to tailor our products and services to bring out the essence of your love for each other.
On a Personal Note
These days the world is complicated, but our promise is a simple one. Leavell Photography is founded on the core principle that we provide incredible photographs with informed style, products with integrity built to last a lifetime or more, and an experience as fun and exciting as it is stress-free.
