Hi! I’m Ari Leo, owner of Vivid Instincts Photography! As my business name suggests, I’m a photographer who loves and is inspired by bright, vivid colors, and my work is shaped by my strong creative instincts.
When it comes to weddings, I love working with couples who want an experience that’s just as unique as they are. My goal is to capture your day authentically & artistically – to preserve every detail and every moment that makes your wedding SO much more than ordinary. From the moment we first connect, I’ll focus on providing you with two simple things: Beautiful art, and a fantastic experience. Inclusivity is one of the most important guiding principles of my business. I believe LOVE IS LOVE & welcome clients of all genders, races, sexualities, and body types.
How I cater to Offbeat Brides
Why do I love photographing offbeat couples so much? Well, it has a lot to do with the fact that I’m a little offbeat myself! I’ll take alternative or experimental over traditional or trendy any day of the week. I’ve always been fascinated by the many different ways humans express themselves – the clothes they wear, the things they surround themselves with, the images they get permanently inked into their skin. My thought process is: You show off your unique personality in so many other areas of your life—why not do that on your wedding day?!
I’m here for the couples who’ve seen the same old cookie-cutter, plain-jane, by-the-book wedding redone so many times, and want anything but. The ones who question the status quo & aren’t afraid to think outside the box. The ones who can’t wait to create the day of their dreams and are excited to make it beautifully different. The ones who aren’t going to let old rules, traditions, or ideas about “how things should be done” dictate how they celebrate their love.
