We had the good fortune of connecting with Leah Layman and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Leah, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
My business has taught me the importance of having genuine relationships with my clients. I truly care for every person I work with. The most gratifying I think is when a couple chooses me after I have photographed their wedding, to capture their family memories in the years to come.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I believe what sets The Click apart is our genuine love and devotion to our clients and what we do. I added video to my business about 4 years ago and watching that grow is very exciting and inspiring. I am loving filming and creating these videos. The road to get where I am now was not an easy one, but looking at where I started 15 years ago to where I am today definitely makes me proud. I don’t anticipate ever being a millionaire, but I am proud of what I do and blessed beyond measure. I have my husband and kids to thank too for standing by me and understanding during those crazy wedding seasons!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I am a Fort Worth girl, so I love all the spots around there. The 7th street area and around Magnolia. Even downtown boasts several spots we could go!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I believe God deserves all the credit for what my business has become. Although, I forget He is in control sometimes, He always seems to find a way to nudge and remind me that it is not about me.
