"Not only does Leslie Choucard have a natural eye and gift at capturing raw emotions and moments, but she goes above and beyond what you expect and see within the contract. When you hire Leslie Choucard to capture your precious memories, she should guarantee that you’ll be thrilled with the end product because she will not stop until her client is happy. How many other photographers these days care that much about each individual client? I’ve hired Leslie for three events so far—my engagement shoot in Paris, my first maternity shoot, and a baby shoot. Unfortunately, I was forced to hire someone else for our newborn shoot. During my time with this other photographer, I learned just how gifted Leslie is and how much heart she puts into her work. This other guy could care less. When I told him I was unhappy with the photos, he did the bare minimum to fix the situation and still disappointed me. This would never happen with Leslie. First of all, I’ve always been ecstatic with the pictures she takes the first time (and apparently I’m not that easy to please). The only problem with Leslie is that it’s too hard to choose which photos to print! Look at her portfolio; she obviously has the talent and eye. But don’t choose your photographer just based off their portfolio. Know that in choosing Leslie, you are hiring a photographer that is honored you choose her, that is genuinely excited about meeting you and being included in your life, that will skip meals and stay on her feet all day long, that will edit thousands of photos tirelessly until the job is done to perfection. In hiring Leslie Choucard, you are hiring a photographer that does this job solely for the look of joy on your face when you see the finished product. There is no one more capable and caring to trust in capturing this special moment in your life. I absolutely, whole heartedly recommend Leslie Choucard Photography

" We love Leslie! We discovered her through the Anna Maria Island Wedding Festival and scheduled her for our engagement photos. She willingly met us in Tampa (we live in Orlando) and picked the perfect spot. We had such a blast taking them, and they turned out fabulous! Leslie has such a creative eye, she captured amazing shots and had great ideas for cute poses. The shoot was full of laughs and she was a good sport when we all (and her camera) got pooped on by a bird! Unforgettably hilarious! For our wedding, things did not go as planned but Leslie was super helpful and brought umbrellas for the inclement weather that surfaced 15 minutes before our ceremony. The pictures were great and portrayed all of the fun that was our wedding reception. We have many, many candids that are priceless. Luckily, we were able to get our first look and bridal party photos done before the rain came and we will cherish them forever!! There are many things I would have planned out differently for our wedding day but choosing Leslie was definitely not one of them!!!! Thank you for capturing the best parts of our special day!!! We will definitely be asking Leslie to do any and all photo shoots for us in the future! "

"Un petit mot pour remercier Leslie Choucard pour les magnifiques photos qu’elle a faites de mes enfants. Quand je lui ai confié mes deux fillettes, jamais je n’aurais imaginé un tel résultat !
Je ne me lasse pas de les regarder, et j’ai déjà eu les compliments de bon nombre de mes ami(e)s qui pensent sérieusement à faire la même chose avec leurs enfants. Pouvoir coucher sur la pellicule (enfin, façon de parler… Plutôt sur l’écran !) tous ces petits instants d’intimité, d’amour, d’amitié entre deux sœurs, ce lien indéfinissable mais si profond "mère-fille"… Du pur bonheur à conserver, regarder, et encore regarder… Encore merci et bravo pour ton talent, Leslie."

" Leslie worked with Julian and I on our wedding day in late November, and we cannot recommend her highly enough. We are both incredibly camera shy and didn't want a photo shoot (or over-posing relatives) to take away from what was to be a nerve filled, yet incredibly special day, but we also wanted to make sure we captured everything and everyone as well. Leslie managed to do just that, helping us decide on format and groupings and guiding us as to what was available, and on the day she gently directed us all, making sure she was there to take a shot, but not in any way obtrusive. To be honest she was hardly noticeable which I think is part of her gift as a wedding photographer. All our guests felt at ease with her empathetic way of maneuvering people into their right light, and the end result was an amazing collection of photos which have received a constant supply of gushing and nostalgic misty eyed moments.. Weddings can be stressful enough, you need a solid, experienced and calm photographer to make all the stress disappear when you record your special moment. Thank you so much Leslie! "
