Josh & Nicole Beaird - 10 Years with Manda Leek
I met Nicole & Josh when I was first hired as their Springfield Missouri Engagement Photographer. Being their Springfield Missouri Wedding Photographer was a pleasure. As their life changed and their family grew, we’ve kept in touch for all the big milestones, where I’ve curated their memories as a family of two, as their Springfield Missouri Maternity Photographer, then later as a family of three about to be four. I’ve lovingly captured their children as their Springfield Missouri Family Photographer and I can’t wait to keep telling their family story for years to come.
Sara & Bryan Franco - 10 years with Manda Leek
I remember meeting Sara & Bryan for the first time when they booked their Engagement and Wedding Photography with me in Springfield Missouri! Sara & Bryan actually hired me to be their Lake Of The Ozark Wedding Photographer though! They had a beautiful day, full of love, laughs and family time. Their lives took off & they moved away from Missouri. We lost touch for a few years, but fate would bring the Francos back to Missouri at the same time I was returning from living in Florida for three years. We set up their family session & I had the honor and privilege of meeting their three boys & photographing this darling family once again!
Travis & Hollie Elliott - 10 years with Manda Leek
I will never forget meeting Hollie & Travis! This couple swept me off my feet with their tenderness & generosity. As their Springfield Missouri Engagement Photographer, we slipped downtown for some trendy 417 area Engagement Photos, then journeyed to some property owned by Travis & his family, for a rustic set of images. Hollie & Travis also hired me to photograph their Springfield, Missouri Wedding, which ended up being a gorgeous event. Over the years we kept in touch & I’ve been honored to have been hired by Hollie & Travis many, many times, including being the Newborn Photographer for both of their girls in Fair Grove, Missouri. I have been honored to watch their family grow & change over the years and recently I was able to capture their family of six as their Springfield, Missouri Family Photographer, after my return from Florida.
Jonathan & Britney - 8 years with Manda Leek
I met Britney when she was merely a senior in high school, as her Fair Grove Senior Portrait Photographer! Nothing has been as gratifying as watching her grow & mature into such a thoughtful wife & mother. When I met Jonathan at a session where Britney modeled for some images that were later used by American Eagle Outfitters, I knew it was love! A few years later Britney asked me to be her Springfield, Missouri Engagement Photographer and Pleasant Hope Wedding Photographer. Like many couples who come back for photos year after year, I’ve been honored to see the Lems family grow to a family of four, as their Springfield, Missouri Family Photographer.
Travis & Stacey - 8 years with Manda Leek
When I think back to meeting Stacey & Travis, I remembered thinking they were so young, but so mature! I was honored to be their Joplin, Mo Engagement Photographer & their Joplin, Missouri Wedding Photographer! The Kunce Family decided to grow by one, and I was thrilled to be their Family Photographer in Webb City, Missouri. Soon after, I was seeing the Kunce Family again for their second Springfield, Missouri Maternity Session!
Tyler & Allison Keatts - 6 years with Manda Leek
I remember connecting immediately with Allison and her mom when they booked me as their Rogersville, Missouri Engagement Photographer & their Springfield Missouri Wedding Photographer. Not too long after they tied the knot I was able to be their Springfield, Missouri Maternity Photographer & Hudson’s first Christmas, Springfield, Missouri Family Photographer!
Justin & Allison Bess - 6 years with Manda Leek
I’ve known Justin my entire life! As kids I had to have the same stuffed animal he had, a little dog, Mugsie. I remember in high school when he and Allison started dating. Everyone knew it was serious! Years passed after we graduated, but being the generous and thoughtful guy & gal they are, Justin & Allison called me to shoot their Springfield Missouri Engagement Photos & they hired me to be their Springfield Missouri Wedding Photographer. To this day, their Springfield, Missouri Wedding is the only wedding I have ever cried at - it was one of the most special ceremonies. I’ve been honored to see the Bess Family year after year, meeting their darling boys for fall photos & being their Springfield Missouri Family Photographer. Truly an honor Bess Family.
Megan & Weston O’Dell - 5 years with Manda Leek
Meeting Megan and Westin was lovely, just like them. I was so thrilled they reserved my services as their Springfield Missouri Engagement Photographer and as their Springfield Missouri Wedding Photographer! They had a truly beautiful wedding in downtown 417 right around Christmas time, also one of my favorite times of year for Springfield Missouri Family Christmas Card Sessions! As soon as I announced my return to Missouri, Megan contacted me to be their Springfield Missouri Family Photographer. Their children are darling and I can’t wait to see how their family continues to grow and change.
Tyler & Shawna Patrick - 4 years with Manda Leek
I’ve known Tyler and Shawna for awhile now and when they asked me to be their Willard Missouri Wedding Photographer, I was overjoyed! It was also a blast being their Springfield Missouri Engagement Photographer, where I was so glad they brought their puppers and motorcycle to their session for something different and very cool! When Tyler contacted me to book a surprise shoot for Shawna as a mother’s day gift, I jumped at the opportunity to meet Silas and be their Springfield Missouri Family Photographer. What a great family! I can’t wait to see where life takes them.
