Hi! I'm Leslie Rodriguez - welcome to my photography home. I am a full-time wedding photographer based out of Louisville, Kentucky and Nashville, Tennessee (and yes! I travel for weddings!). I love music, travel, languages, and indulging my creative impulses. I'm married to a wonderful, fun loving Chilean named Javier and we have a beautiful daughter Penelope and three crazy dogs.
I started this business in 2010 and have photographed weddings all over the country. I specialize in capturing fleeting moments, and I love classic, timeless imagery. I take a light-handed approach to editing so that your photos aren't victims of dated photography trends. I want you to look back on your photos and see your day as it was: perfect, and perfectly you.
I've been in the bride's shoes before, and I am familiar with the stress that couples experience when planning a wedding that is equal parts meaningful and FUN! I understand the desire to bring your unique vision to life in a way that covers all of your needs without sacrificing your personal touch. As someone who planned two weddings, one in Nashville and one in Chile, both within two weeks of each other and in two different languages, I know how it feels to be both out-of-your-mind excited and overwhelmed. That's where I come in.
My job as your photographer goes beyond taking your photos. My work begins when we meet; I want to learn your story so that I can capture it honestly. I will design a photography timeline for your day so that you can truly enjoy the wedding and party that you've spent so much time and effort to bring together! I am in touch with you throughout your engagement to solidify plans and go over any questions that may arise leading up to the big event. I will spend your wedding day documenting the big picture as well as the minute details so that you can relive your most treasured and important moments for the rest of your lives together.
A Little About Me
I am a Louisville native and returned to my hometown with Javier after spending twelve years in Nashville, TN. While in Nashville I completed two graduate degrees at Vanderbilt University in Latin American Studies and Sociology. Thanks to extended stints abroad in Spain, Chile, and Brazil, I am fluent in both Spanish and Portuguese. In 2013 I joined the Nashville-based band Humming House as the female vocalist and percussionist and spent four amazing years touring and performing all over the country. In 2017 I left the band to start my family and continue with wedding photography full time. Now settled in Louisville, we love to spend time outdoors with Penelope gardening, biking, or walking our little pack around Louisville. We blog about our adventures over at losrodriguezlife.com.
