I swear I didn't make these up.
Hillary was a wonderful photographer to work with!! She did a fantastic job communicating with me before the wedding about my wishes and ideas. She had so many creative ideas of her own and made our photo shoot so much fun! Hillary also did a great job of being sensitive to my family's situation of who was supposed to be in what pictures; things that I thought were going to be stressful she made a breeze! She did our engagement and wedding photos, andI plan to use her again for other exciting life events!!!"
-Mr. & Mrs. Kyle Lovell
"Hillary has been a dear friend of mine for many years, from the first time I met her until now, she has done nothing but excel. I have worked several weddings with her and she simply has a way to make you feel at peace. Her work speaks for itself and the amazing quality she brings to her pictures is something that only she can capture. Seeing as many weddings as I do, I can truthfully say that you will not find a more dedicated, professional, or enjoyable photographer! "

“On October 5, 2013, I married the man I had been praying for since I was young. That day I will remember always thanks to Hillary Leah Photography. The day couldn’t have gone any better! The pictures captured were beautiful, creative, and just what I wanted. I didn’t worry about getting everything right because Hillary worked hard AND subtlety to capture the perfect moments. We had the best experience a bride could ask for when we chose Hillary to photography our day. I’m ecstatic when looking through our pictures because it wasn’t solely about imaging in the perfect pose or proper lighting, it was about capturing love and friendship that I had with my best friends and family surrounding us. Thank you Hillary!”

"Hillary Leah Photography is Cherokee County's best kept secret. Beautiful outdoor portraits with reasonable prices. If you have kids, I am sure you get tired of getting the same photos with the same white background with the same fake expression. Hillary is a master of outdoor portraits especially with kids. She has a gifted eye where she can find ways to get my kids to show that spark in their eyes that only comes out when they are relaxed and having fun. She even got my husband to relax! It felt like we were just hanging out in the woods going for a walk! Love her!"
- Mrs. Brenda Childers
"Alex and I fell in love with Hillary and her photography after our engagement session with her. We then booked her to do our wedding ceremony and reception. She was very fun but also professional! Hillary did a wonderful job of capturing every moment between Alex and I on our wedding day. I almost cried when I saw the finished results... We LOVE our photos. We cannot wait to book her for other big events in our lives."
-Hannah & Alex Barfoot
"I was absolutely so impressed with the photos you captured from our wedding. You were able to capture the beauty of the Historic Tate House while focusing the details on the bride and groom.. No an easy task in my opinion. Your photos capture the beauty of all around while still focusing the beauty of the subjects you're photographing. You have a true gift! To add to that.. You're so incredibly sweet and make those you're working with feel so at ease! You're just one of those people you're able to open up to! Everyone at our wedding thought you were adorable and asked me about your information for future photography work! We have had canvas made of our beautiful Hillary Leah Photography wedding photos and have had more compliments on our photos than I could have ever imagined! Go Hil!!!!"

"Going with Hillary Leah Photography was the second best decision I made regarding my wedding.. besides saying yes to my Fiancé of course! Hillary shot our engagement pictures and she is beyond talented! She was on-time, friendly, professional, and really did care about what each and every picture looked like. She never once made us feel rushed and she took the time to explain how we would set up for each picture. She even let us do 3 outfit changes.. She really is the best! We are overwhelmed and beyond satisfied with the quality and beauty of pictures! Our friends and family were extremely impressed as well. Now, we can't even wait for our wedding."
“Hillary is a multi-talented creative. She has written profiles of artists and restaurants for our site, helped us with kids camps, and done photography events for us and every single thing she has done in partnership with us has blown us away. She’s hard working, communicates clearly and relates to everyone she interacts with. We couldn’t more highly recommend her as a writer, photographer, or as a multi-purpose extraordinaire! If you think she’s a fit and might be able to help you in one of those categories, trust us, she is!"

"Hillary Leah has the alluring ability to draw an audience into a picture. She tells a story the viewer can observe, respect, enjoy, and inevitably feel they are a part of--without even being there. Her photographs capture more than a moment in time, but every ounce of emotion and adventure that is held there. If you want to see dreams come to life, simply gaze into the smiling eyes of her subjects!"
