Hi! My name is Leigh Castelli and I am the proud owner and operator of Leigh Castelli Photography in North County, San Diego, California! Photography has always been my greatest passion but my career out of college took me down a different path. After spending more than a decade producing daytime television, I knew the time had finally come to turn my lifelong passion into a full time career and that is when Leigh Castelli Photography was born. 

As a busy mother of two, I know how fleeting the moments are. 

Capturing authentic emotions and connecting with my clients is the greatest gift and one that I never take for granted. My clients are like family to me and I feel extremely honored to share  and capture their most precious memories and life milestones. 

Although my work centers mostly around families, newborns, engagements & weddings- I rarely turn down an opportunity to try something  different and new. Partnering with corporate clients and local businesses throughout San Diego has been a wonderful addition to my business and I'm thrilled to expand my expertise to service all areas. 

My work has been featured in People Magazine, People Celebrity Baby Blog, Us Weekly Magazine, Manhattan Bride, Carlsbad Magazine, The Tasting Panel Magazine, Elite Magazine, Seasons Magazine, Posh Child Magazine, Rails to Trails Magazine and several others. My images are also frequently featured in the Instagram and Social Media Outlets.
