family first

leigh’s bio

fun spirited

Leigh Doran was born in the Green Mountains of Vermont, and grew up in an adventurous family that introduced her to foreign countries at a young age. These early experiences planted the seed for what would become her future career as a photographer, and inspire her interest in the human story. Leigh received her Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and continued her pursuit of the visual arts by completing a rigorous film degree at a quaint photography school in Asheboro, North Carolina. Leigh joined Nadra Photography in 2010 and has since become a wedding specialist, photographing countless weddings along the Maine coast at some of the finest wedding venues the state has to offer. Leigh, a native New Englander, now calls the beautiful midcoast of Maine home, where she lives with her husband and young sons.

what they said

working with leigh

“Leigh photographed our wedding and couldn’t have been happier! On our wedding day we were completely comfortable, even though we had only ever spoken with Leigh on the phone, due to being out of state. She was incredibly efficient and made sure we got all the pictures we wanted, while still getting to our reception on time. We got our pictures back faster then expected and love them!! Thank you Leigh and Nadra Photography!!”

WHEN WILL MY IMAGES BE READY?

For the vast majority of weddings, we deliver final image proofs 4-6 weeks after the date of the wedding. However, this time frame may be slightly longer during our peak wedding season.

CAN YOU RECOMMEND A VIDEOGRAPHER?

Yes, we’d love to! A videographer can either enhance or hinder our ability to do our best work for you. We know some incredible videographers that we’d love to recommend to you.
