DESTINATION WEDDING AND ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY PRESERVING MOMENTS OF SINCERE CONNECTION BETWEEN WARM, DARING, ONE-OF-A-KIND COUPLES.

Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer & Elopement Photographer

You’ve found the kind of love they’re always singing about (and I’m always singing along about!) in Disney movies. Now, it’s time to decide how you want to say “I do!” But you’re not like the other Disney princes and princesses. You dream of doing something a little different on your special day.

Maybe you want to take bachata lessons to prep for a showstopping first dance or walk down the aisle in a lacy pantsuit. Or maybe you want to get away from it all to say your vows on a mountaintop, on the Vegas strip, or at your favorite skatepark. Maybe you want to hop on a plane and travel halfway around the world! Whatever your vision, I can’t wait to help you bring it to life while capturing every unrepeatable, emotional moment from behind my camera.

JOYFULLY SERVING COLORADO, HAWAII, AND BEYOND!

HOLA,
ALOHA,
AND HELLO!

Hey, you badass fiancés! I’m Leslie, a Colorado Springs-based destination wedding and elopement photographer. I’m Colombian-born and New York-raised with a heart for the Hawaiian Islands. I’ve called so many wildly different places home, so is it really all that surprising I now call “the whole freaking world” my service area?

With my Louis Vuitton bags full of thrift-store finds and my trusty Doc Martens and Vans, I travel the world telling love stories in my signature vibrant, immersive style. Inspired by the bold colors of my former Hawaiian home and the energy of my New-York-by-way-of-Colombia upbringing, I create galleries that feel authentic-yet-editorial. Elegant-yet-emotional. Basically, it’s the best of both worlds! You get to be all-natural and free while I turn your connection into works of art!

Want to find out more about your new favorite Colorado Springs-based destination wedding and elopement photographer? Step right this way! But before you do, try to guess:

Speaking of love stories, how long do you think my husband and I have known each other?

  1. Since high school
  2. Since middle school
  3. Since college
Wedding & Elopement Photographer, Leslie Carbajal

“SHE TRULY CAPTURES MAGIC.”

“Leslie is basically a magical fairy photographer who makes your wishes come true! From the very beginning of the planning stages to the day of the shoot, she did not skip a beat! She made my family and I feel super comfortable. All we had to do was be ourselves, and she took care of the rest!”
