The Leighton Co.

Nostalgic yet modern, we like to do things different. When we consider the photos and videos we would want for our own family, we envision something that feels beautiful and timeless but also true to who we are. We believe you deserve the same.

This is how we do it.





We are both 9w1s on the enneagram, so you can expect us to be a calming presence on your wedding day. Something runs late? We can handle it. We will be there to celebrate alongside you without taking over the show. 

We are always observing what's happening in front of us and thinking about what's going to matter in 50 years. From the little details that took way too many hours to decide on, to the mundane things like the style of car you drive. They all play a part in your story. 

Remember how I said we were both 9w1s? The 1 in us keeps us very organized, in tune with detail, and  just a little perfectionistic. That means we will plan ahead, be directive when we need to (hello, family portraits!) and take ALL the care when editing your photos and films. It's almost to a fault, but you're worth it. 

peace of mind

We ensure you that when you hire us, your investment is safe. We pride ourselves on  communication, as well as a thorough system to protect your photos and video by having backup gear, recording to dual memory cards, holding liability and equipment insurance, and immediately backing up all your footage to multiple locations after the wedding.

Working with these two lovely humans was effortless. They are so kind and each brought a light-hearted, stress-free energy to our wedding. Their attention to detail is uncanny and they were able to perfectly execute our vision and bring to life the most important aspects of our wedding day in their work. We are taken back to our most favorite day every time we look at Becca's gorgeous photos and can't watch Scott's video without crying. We highly and enthusiastically recommend The Leighton Co. and can't thank them enough for giving us the most beautiful gifts that we will cherish for years to come.

-Morgan & Devan

Great imagery begins with a great experience. In the past 5+ years as a wedding photographer and videographer, we have come to realize that it’s the moments that are gone instantaneously that are the most important, and they are rarely planned out.

The experience we bring allows us to anticipate these moments, and be ready to artfully document them. We want our clients to walk away with imagery that reminds them of what it felt like to be in that very moment, uninterrupted, living life to the fullest. 

We believe that photography and videography protect your entire wedding investment - we capture all the special details and moments of the day for you to preserve and pass down forever.




We are a team that works best when we work together. We believe it is so important to have a photo and video team that knows how to work well with each other and have a similar approach so we can give you the greatest experience AND results.

We take on a limited amount of weddings each year so we can build deep connections with the couples who trust us with documenting their wedding day. We would love to hop on a phone call to get to know you and your dreams for your wedding and see if we'd be a great fit. Inquire below to start the chat and receive a custom quote!

How many photos will we receive? What comes with the video collection?

On average we deliver 50-100 images per hour of coverage.  Video collections include a 6-8 minute highlight film and a 60-90 second teaser film. 

When can we expect our photos/video?

Our maximum deadline during busy season for photo delivery is 10 weeks and video delivery is 20 weeks. You can expect sneak peeks within a week of your wedding, as well as a video teaser within 2 weeks (we are so excited to share them with you asap!) 


We do! We travel with no additonal fees within 3 hours of Portland, Maine and would love to travel for your wedding within the US or worldwide. So far we have captured weddings in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, New York, Texas, and Berlin, Germany.

Do you offer albums?

I am passionate about offering beautifully designed, handcrafted heirloom albums to you! There is nothing like reliving the day through an album vs letting the images live on a screen. Albums added on at the time of booking are discounted 10%. 

How do we order prints?

There is a professional print lab (only accessible to professional photographers) attached to your gallery. Everyone with access to that link can order high quality images directly from the site. I recommend not printing at CVS, Walgreens, Shutterfly, etc. for accurate color and for quality and longevity.

frequently asked


How do we book?

Do we. need a second shooter?

We shoot many weddings solo however if your guest count is over 150, when logistically it’d be impossible to have coverage in two places at once (such as getting ready), or when you simply want extra coverage I would recommend adding on a second photographer or videographer.

Do you have insurance?

Yes, we are fully insured! Let us know if your venue requires proof of insurance and we will happily send that over.


We will open our books for 2023 starting January 1st, 2022. We will be booking photography and videography collections with very limited availability for photography only, or videography only. 

After a brief phone call where we can get to know each other and get a feel for the style and unique aspects of your day, we customize a proposal that outlines how we can serve you best. A 25% non refundable retainer and signed contract is required to reserve your date.
