"Wanderlust Shootouts are such an amazing experience! No matter where you are on your photography journey from new to years of experience everyone is welcomed and it’s just an all around good time. Leah brings such a positive upbeat energy to these shoots and has an amazing eye for details and locations. I love how she lets you pose the models and take your time with the shoots to capture little details and anything you would like to add to your portfolio.This was my second time attending and I’m counting down day till the next one. From start to finish Leah organized everything with so much heart and creativity. I loved meeting other great creators and working with so many great models and vendors. My portfolio has expanded so much since doing these shootouts and I even got my first photography magazine publication! Leah your such a joy to be around and I can’t wait to attend another shootout with you!"

"I had so much fun and I can’t wait for the next shootout! I was nervous to go because I’m a beginner and I thought I’d be lost, but everyone was so kind and helpful. I met really cool photographers and I was able to ask lots of questions. Everything was set up so beautifully and I’m thankful I was able to practice shooting in such a welcoming environment. This experience was priceless and has made me excited to continue photography! Leah is so inspirational, lighthearted and happy that her spirit shines through her work. She truly has a gift for hosting these creative events and I’m lucky to have been part of it!"

The Gordonsville Shootout was an absolute dream! Leah took care of everything and all my anxieties about it melted away as soon as I walked in. This was my first ever styled shoot and I seriously am obsessed and want to do more with Leah because she organized everything perfectly! It was such a great way to connect with other local creatives and see everyones unique styles and personalities shine through. Seriously cannot wait for another opportunity to attend one of Leah's shootouts!
