When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.

Ansel Adams


Hi my name is Leslie, my husband Trig and I have one "almost grown" son and we live in Pueblo West Colorado. I started Tanzi Photography & Tanzi Photo Booth because I'm passionate about photography and helping people capture their memories and looking their best. After my son was born I started into digital photography & scrapbooking and became an obsessed scrapbooker and photographer. While scrapbooking I noticed my photos getting better and better, I started to find I had an eye for color, composition and lighting. I invested in a much equipment and educated myself thru trial and error and took workshops and classes. I have been running a home based portrait photography business since 2004. I changed the name a few years back from Friendly-Photography but I continue to offer the same portrait services and products.

In 2015,  I took my knowledge of photography and technology and started offering photo booth services. I found a new love and passion for the photo booth service and entertainment world.  Take laughing-smiling guests and some selfie-like photos and instantly gratifing prints and the excitement is hard to beat. I pride myself in offering a quality all-encompassing photographic service to my clients.

Call or contact me to talk about how our photographic services can help capture your memories and those of your guests at your next event or point in life.

Hire Me For a Project

The photographer completely immersed herself into the festivities which was fantastic. She never got in anyone's way but was still able to get amazing photos. The candids were fantastic along with the action shots and the portraits. The portraits felt natural. My husband and I were able pose in ways that we felt comfortable. The photographer made sure that we were comfortable. The photographer is a family friend so previously knowing her helped make the process go smoothly and make it fun. She was able to make my husband and I laugh which always lessens the stress. She didn't make us stand in poses that we didn't like or feel comfortable in.
