Great Sand Dunes National Park Vow Renewal

Hi, I'm Alisha!

I’m Alisha, Leesh, and lovingly known as Loco Leesh (she/her). I wear many hats as your elopement photographer. I’m also here to be your guide, planner, resource, best friend and hype woman. I'm here to laugh, cry, and occasionally dance alongside you. I'm also a barefoot hippie veteran. Betcha never saw that coming! What really sets my soul on fire is connecting with people on a deeply personal level *My Pisces is showing*. I’m here to tell you that you have permission to DREAM BIG on what you think your wedding day should look like. Because your crazy love deserves to be captured in an authentic way.

Where can I begin? 2020 has been insane, to say the least. With everything going on in the world this vow renewal session at the Great Sand Dunes National Park right outside of Alamosa Colorado was a light-no a full BEAM of sunshine in this crazy year. Mia and Fermin celebrated their first year of marriage back in March and we planned to do a sunrise session in the Valley of Fire outside of Las Vegas in Nevada (if you’ve never been there….go, just go). We had everything ready to go and then COVID came crashing down on us and instead of dancing in the desert we were forced to quarantine at home for months! What was originally the biggest bummer turned out to be the biggest blessing. I’ve always wanted to adventure in the Sand Dunes and when Mia and I talked she decided that she and Fermin would visit Colorado and explore the state. What better place to show them than the Great Sand Dunes National Park? After months of patience and pivoting, we found ourselves waking up at 3 am on a cool morning in August to adventure in the dunes. Mia wore a moody maroon tulle skirt that felt like the perfect mix of boho and Saharan vibes. They walked barefoot in the sand, read their vows to each other, and danced to their favorite songs. It was everything I could have asked for and more and if you ask Mia and Fermin, they’d say the same!

“Alisha is easily one of the best humans I’ve ever met”

Where do I even start!? Alisha was an absolute dream to work with!!! She was so flexible with us and our last-minute cancellation due to covid. We had originally planned to meet her in Vegas for our anniversary shoot in March and we ended up canceling our trip a week out due to the virus. She was so understanding and even offered to refund our deposit. We knew we still absolutely wanted to shoot with her so we scheduled another trip to Colorado this time and she met us there for an amazing sunrise shoot at Great Sand Dunes Natl Park. The whole experience was incredible and Alisha was so amazing and personable, we felt like we had left and made a new friend! She sent us sooo many sneak peeks just a few days after the shoot and Then probably 100 more photos a few weeks later. They were absolutely stunning. She is easily one of the best humans I’ve ever met and not to mention an extremely talented photographer with a clear passion for her clients and her work! We can’t wait to shoot with her again!

“I cannot wait to
book her again”

I have never done a couples shoot but I fell in love with Alisha's work on social media. I was beyond ecstatic when I found out she was traveling to Minnesota. Where do I begin? From the moment I spoke with Alisha, she easily made me feel comfortable and confident. She responded back to my questions and concerns within a timely manner and was easily accessible. Her talent and passion for photography is truly admirable! It’s so evident that she genuinely cares about each and every couple that she works with. Alisha has a gift for detail and seeing things differently than everyone else. She took some breathtaking pictures that will always have a special place in my heart! Alisha doesn't just take photographs, she creates beautiful works of art that don’t just capture smiles but our souls, and to be a part of her art is an absolute honor. Not only is her work stunning, but she is a great person to be around. She is professional, patient and outgoing and I cannot wait to book with her again! Thanks for the memories, laughs and for creating such an enjoyable experience.
