Who I Am

Like any good picture, there is depth to who I am and what I do, so let’s begin at the surface. My name is Leah Tribbett. I was born and raised in South Bend, Indiana and I am a graduate of Indiana University, where I majored in Telecommunications and minored in corn shucking. My camera is rarely out of reach- unless of course it's karaoke night, in which you can find me exclusively singing Evanescence.

My Style

I pride myself by not focusing on what is expected, but rather what is authentic. When telling your personal story, I pay homage to in-between moments because as fleeting or chaotic as they seem to the naked eye, they ever-glow on film. When telling your business story, you will get work that is commissioned by the client, but produced for the consumer.


I am an Indianapolis-based photographer, videographer and visual storyteller with a love for travel.

Okay now, fair is fair: I told you part of my story, and now let's grab a beer so I can hear about yours.
