UK based destination wedding photographer focusing on capturing real moments and real stories of people across the world
WELCOME TO MY PAGE
My name is Hang Leishman and I'm a destination wedding photographer based in Derby, a small city in the East Midlands, England. I'm a very laid back and easy-going person who enjoys my life and I want to document it through my own lens. This is my wonderland where I showcase a big part of my life, where I make my dreams a reality, and witness & document great love stories of people all over the world.
One thing about my photography is that I love pushing boundaries. I don't shoot all weddings the same. I don't make couples do the same pose in every wedding. No forced and fake smiles. They're boring and totally uninspiring. I love to get to know my couples and capture their weddings in a way that shows their love, their story, their personality, and most of all their journey together.
My work is a combination of real emotion, real connection, and real moments. I love photograph daring, adventurous, wild, and free-spirited couples who are madly in love with each other. Please click here to know more about me.
MY WORK PHILOSOPHY
I absolutely love "madly in love" couples who are not shy to show their love and affection in front of the camera. There's nothing more captivating in a photo than real emotions from a couple, be it joy, happiness, sadness, tears, or laughter, something that makes my photos meaningful. But if you're camera shy, it's fine. I know how to make you feel at ease and shoot from a distance so that you don't even know I'm there. Trust me. I'm a sniper.
I'm not just talking about connection between a couple, but connection between you and I as well. If you chose me to be your photographer, it means that you trust me enough to allow me to capture the most important day of your life, and that's meaningful to me. I want to get to know you more to deserve your trust. I strongly believe that the more we open up to each other, the better we're able to create something special and meaningful together.
Absolutely. My main approach to any wedding is to capture the real moments that show your true self, your tears, your laughter, your awkwardness. No forced or fake smiles. No cheesy or awkward poses. No boring group shots. Just the real you, and everybody else enjoying your wedding. Because it's your wedding day. You should be you. Enjoying it. Not worrying about how you look in front of the camera. Let me take care of that part.
I love to document weddings, elopements, and couples and I had the honour of capturing a few weddings and couples last year. My work has been featured on Vogue Italia and One Fab Day. Please click on the button below to see my galleries.
