California San Francisco Bay Area Wedding and Portrait Photographer
My name is Connie Leal and I specialize in wedding and portrait photography. I am situated in Brentwood CA in Contra Costa County. I have been photographing weddings and portraiture for over 15 years. There are no dull moments with weddings. I enjoy all the laughter and tears and all the emotions that are shed with these events. I do not know who has more fun the couple or me being a people watcher and capturing these romantic, silly, and joyous moments.
The wedding gallery I wish to share images of posed photographs, some not so posed, and different lighting scenes this is to show how I photograph a wedding and to show my photographic style. I also want to share images that have been taken at different venues wineries, golf courses, country clubs, barns, city, and garden weddings. I also want to share the different lighting situations a wedding can have like natural light, artificial light, and studio lighting.
These images have been taken in many different venues from Northern CA, Carmel, Monterey, Napa, Sacramento, Amador County, South Bay Area, San Jose, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz area. There are examples of large and micro weddings. Also, examples of church and outdoor ceremonies.

Brentwood CA Portrait Photographer
These images will show different locations I have shot at the beach, city, meadows, parks and forests.
I am a Bay Area portrait photographer. I have shot so many portraits in many locations and different lighting scenarios. These pictures are examples of the different types of portraiture I have taken.
I want to show that I can create a mood in a portrait by simply having it lit in a certain way. I also want to reflect that the portraits are about the client and by creating a portrait that enhances their personalities and interests. I want people to feel proud of their photos so they can share their images with family and friends.
