Introduction: I'm a light and airy photographer and have been photographing milestones and special occasions since 2015. I capture candid moments by focusing on two main things, natural light and composition. My editing style focuses on people and highlighting your best features. Aside from portrait sessions such as engagements, maternity, family and graduates, I also capture events such as quinceaneras and weddings. I shoot with a journalistic approach so I capture moments that tell a story. Most importantly, I love connecting with my clients on a personal level and becoming friends during the planning process. Relationship, trust, and love (agape) are at the core of what I do. I can't wait to become friends!

Gloria R.

Wedding and Event Photography

Lesly is AMAZING! She captured our Sugarloaf elopement and made the whole process fun and easy for us. She was very communicative, organized, professional, and a joy to work with. She was everything we were looking for in a photographer and she exceeded our expectations. We’ve never been professionally photographed before, but she made the process feel so natural and easy. Everything flowed so organically as she was taking photos. She always had the best suggestions and made us feel comfortable all at once. I would hire Lesly for any of my future events in a heartbeat!

Gloria! You know just how to make a girl tear up. I am so touched by your words. Your elopement was absolutely stunning, and I am so grateful that you trusted me with your big day! I am so glad you felt at ease in front of my camera. That is very important to me and despite having to work around the pandemic, I am so happy everything worked out perfectly. I look forward to serving you again!

Wedding and Event Photography

Words can't express how lucky I was to find Lesly to photograph our microwedding!! From our facetime introduction to shooting the wedding, to getting our pictures, Lesly made the whole process so easy and comfortable. All of our guests commented on how great they all felt with her behind the camera, she was really hyping everyone up and making everyone feel so great about themselves! Her photography style perfectly captured our day and was exactly what I had envisioned for our little wedding. I should also add that I was late to my own ceremony because there was a BLM protest through downtown DC, and Lesly was super proactive and used the time to take as many of my requested portrait photos as possible which was so appreciated! I can't say enough good things about our experience and would absolutely work with Lesly again...Agape Productions is truly a hidden gem that I feel so happy to support. I could only pick up to 3 reasons why I liked working with Lesly, but I would have picked all 5 (work quality, professionalism, responsiveness, value, punctuality) if Thumbtack let me!

Portrait Photography

Lesly was so great and easy to work with. She was very responsive from the beginning and made me feel very comfortable throughout the process. We haven’t received our photos yet because we had our photoshoot less than a week ago, but her service was so great-I just know the photos will turn out gorgeous.

I also really appreciate the gift you gave me. You're so thoughtful! I am so blessed to serve the best clients. :) I look forward to serving you again!

Wedding and Event Photography

While we didn't end up working with Lesly because a family friend offered to photograph our event, my communications with Lesly were pleasant. She was very responsive and quickly was able to work up a contract. She was willing to provide a free phone consultation to discuss what we needed for our event.

Hi Diandra, thank you so much for your wonderful review! I'm happy we were able to connect, and I look forward to serving you in the future! (:

We hired Lesly to photograph our son's wedding, and from beginning to end, it was an amazing experience! Lesly responded quickly to all communication, was friendly and professional, and takes her work as a photographer very seriously! My son and his fiancé liked her right away, as Lesly invited them to a virtual "get to know you" session. She wanted to have an idea of who they were as a couple and what was important to them. It showed how much she cared about the "subject" of her photography. On the wedding day, she was there early, not willing to miss a single shot that may become a treasured memory! She took pictures for the next 7 hours, and we hardly noticed her as she moved throughout the church so quietly and inconspicuously, getting precious wedding shots that we never expected to be captured! She was respectful of all the guests and their experience of the wedding, never walking in front of anyone's view nor disturbing their time. We got our "sneak peak" and the entire photo package much earlier than expected, and I have to say...EVERY photo is just perfect! Lesly has a gift for photography, and for working with people! She captured so many special moments we didn't expect, and she made every posed photo look so natural! I can't say enough about our excellent experience! I would definitely hire her again and again for all our special family experiences! She does excellent, exquisite work, is very reasonably priced, and is such a pleasure to work with!

Hi Mary! I am speechless at how kind your words are. Thank you so much for providing this feedback! I am so honored to have been able to capture Livi and Liam's wedding day. Both your families were just so sweet and I loved getting to celebrate with you all! I look forward to serving you all again in the future. :)
