BEHIND THE CAMERA
Welcome, I'm Lanie Deel, and I can't wait to know you better.
I love chasing the light and finding the authentic in-between moments. What I love most about photography is that I get to create amazing relationships with the people I meet.
Photography is a remarkable privilege, granting me a front-row view to life's most cherished moments, and at times, its most challenging ones. I have the unique opportunity to be present when no one else is, diligently striving to capture those fleeting instances, encompassing the full spectrum of emotions – joy, sorrow, anticipation, and excitement. My hope is that, in the days to come, you can revisit these beautifully preserved memories through my lens of an image and be thankful for that particular chapter in your life.
FOLLOWER IN CHRIST
follower in Christ
These roles have shaped my perspective as my position as a wedding photographer.
As a mother, I understand the importance of capturing those fleeting, heartfelt moments that make a wedding day so special. Just as I cherish the precious moments with my own child, I strive to capture the authentic emotions and connections that unfold between couples and their loved ones on their most significant day.
Being a wife has taught me the value of love, commitment, and partnership. I believe in the sanctity of marriage and the profound bond that two souls share as they embark on this incredible journey together. It's a privilege for me to witness and document the love stories of other couples, knowing that each one is unique and deserving of celebration.
My faith as a follower in Christ deepens my appreciation for the beauty and significance of every wedding I photograph. I believe that each marriage is a divine union, and I am committed to capturing the moments that reflect the love, faith, and hope that this sacred commitment represents.
With my camera as my tool, I am dedicated to preserving the love, joy, and grace that shine through on your wedding day. I consider it an honor to be part of your journey and to document the chapters of your love story, creating timeless and cherished memories that will be treasured for generations.
Why 'Simply Bleu'? In the early days of my journey as a wedding photographer, I found myself captivated by the timeless beauty and significance of weddings. As I immersed myself in this world of love and devotion, I realized that every wedding is a unique love story, a tapestry of emotions, and a promise of a beautiful future. In my quest to capture the essence of these special moments, I stumbled upon a powerful source of inspiration: the color blue.
Blue symbolized depth, trust, and serenity, qualities that are at the heart of every meaningful relationship. It's the color of the sky on a clear day and the endless expanse of the ocean, representing the boundless potential of love. With this in mind, I founded 'Simply Bleu Weddings.' The name reflects the simple, yet profound moments that define a wedding day - the exchanged glances, the shared smiles, and the tender touches.
'Bleu' not only pays homage to the calming and profound nature of the color, but also adds a touch of elegance and uniqueness to our brand. My goal as a wedding photographer is to capture the beauty of love in its purest form, to simply be there to document these precious moments in the lives of couples. 'Simply Bleu' represents the essence of what I do: capturing the timeless beauty of love stories with authenticity and grace, turning them into cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
