Moving to a new place

Some of you may have noticed that the site has a new look and feel. Thank you for those who have noticed. After an awesome 8 years of being hosted by Photobiz, I am now moving to SquareSpace. Let me say first, I love PHOTOBIZ! If you are a new photographer, you can go to and see their offerings. The one thing that won me over with SquareSpace is not only their customer service, but the integration. It IS more expensive than what I was paying for at Photobiz, But like most things in life, it is better to pay a little more and get a whole lot more than pay a little less and get a whole lot less... 

In the next month or so, I will be moving both my wedding blogs and general photography/fashion blogs to here from WP. I am thinking of still "feeding" out to them though just to make it easier for fans to find me. But for now, this is my new home. I would love for you to tell me how I am doing and if you like the new place. The old site is still active and can be reached HERE

Remember to subscribe up above to keep updated on new posts and new photos. Thank you. 



Leighton DaCosta

Hello, I'm Leighton and I help people around the world tell their story. Let me introduce myself. Whether it's for online dating, or a professional profile, it always seems that the "About Me" section is always the hardest to write. Not because you have nothing to say about yourself, but because you want to be sincere, genuine, interesting, and brief all at the same time. I have never been a fan of writing about me in the third person, like: "Leighton DaCosta, was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and moved to Brooklyn, NY at an early age when his parents wanted to form a new life for themselves and their children. In the third grade, the family moved to Orlando, Fl, where Leighton considers his home town. After spending 3 tours in the Navy, he settled in Jacksonville, and now Miramar, Florida, where he now calls home. Today, still wanted by many, he does work as a fashion and wedding photographer. If you have a wedding(or photo shoot)... if no one else can help... and if you can find him... maybe you can hire... ok.. this is not The A- Team." But you see what I mean? What do you know about me? How can we connect? Did you know that my FAVORITE food is Pizza and Sushi? Or that my favorite color is Purple? When I go to the wine bars, I usually order Mimosas, because even the cheapest champagne tastes great with some good ole OJ. When I travel, I like staying in nice hotels. Not because of the name, (even though I AM partial to Hyatt) but because of the bathrooms. One of my favorite hotels is the Viking in Newport, Rhode Island. Small rooms, but AWESOME bathrooms. I LOVE TO EAT, and eating as much as I have, has led me to be about 100 pounds more than I was in High School... Yeah there is some muscle there, but if it was all muscle, I'm sorry folks, I wouldn't be taking photos, I would be retiring from the NFL. If you want to see some of my favorite dishes, follow me on Instagram. Because of that, I find myself now in the gym more than ever. Trying to stay fit and alive... I workout, so I can EAT! Well that's enough for now, if you want to know more about me, follow my blog. Better yet, I want to find out more about YOU. So let's talk!
