When working with me, my clients get a full experience, not just a day-of vendor. The moment you sign the dotted line, I work hands-on to help you create the day of your dreams. From creating the smoothest photo timeline for your day alongside your planner, to capturing gorgeous pre-wedding photos, to designing your wedding album, I am there throughout the process to give you a personalized and quality experience.
I incorporate a heavy amount of artistry and detail into my work, however, I take a documentary approach on the wedding day. I love working with couples who share my love for natural light, European architecture, beautifully designed details, and high fashion. My main goal is to capture those joyful and romantic moments in the most natural way possible.
"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."
Your love is unique to you and your partner. And your wedding day is as unique as your love story. I believe you shouldn't settle for cookie cutter packages, but have the option to choose from collections that suite all of your needs. All of my couples' collections include an online gallery with all photos and a second photographer for the wedding day.
As a welcome gift, I give all of my couples a Wedding Experience Magazine. I wrote this guide to help you make the most of your photography investment and to ensure that we can have the most successful experience together possible. It includes all my expertise and tips for wedding and engagement prep in addition to a list of vendor recommendations.
I consider engagement and pre-wedding sessions as an essential part of the telling of your love story. These session are a chance for us to collaborate creatively and allows me to connect with you before your wedding day. With destination locations and high fashion, the possibilities are endless.
During your planning process, I will work closely with you and your planner to create the perfect photography timeline for your day so that you don't have to worry about a single thing. This is something I have refined and perfected to give my couples time for all the photos they see in my portfolio.
My main goal as a wedding professional is to make sure your day is as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. My couples trust me to take care of their memories so they can be present and soak everything in. You deserve to have incredible photos taken by an experienced professional - someone you can trust to get you romantic images that stand the test of time.
I firmly believe your photos should not live on your computer, but be printed and shared and remembered frequently. That's why at least one of my collections in all my custom proposals includes an heirloom wedding album. As a Graphic Designer, I take pride in curating my couples' wedding photos to tell the entire story of their day and designing a gorgeous heirloom to show their families and friends. All my couples also receive an heirloom linen box with 100 prints and a glass USB.
Hayley helped make our wedding really special. We live in Germany and she was willing to travel over to help us preserve memories of our big day. She is professional, lots of fun, pays attention to detail, and she was incredibly useful in planning before the wedding and making sure things ran smoothly on the actual day.
She was to us much more than 'just' a photographer but an integral part of the wedding. She knows her stuff and provided us with beautiful pictures of our big day that we enjoy looking back on, decorating our home with, and sharing with friends and family. We completely recommend her!

Hayley is the absolute best & if she's not your photographer she should be! Hayley shot our engagement and wedding photos and I'm honestly so sad all our events are over because she has become such a great friend & only wanted the absolute best for us!
She is extremely knowledgable and professional, and has an incredible talent! My now husband was not looking forward to getting our photos taken in the slightest but Hayley made both of us so comfortable and all our photos came out like we're models - she's the real deal!

Having pictures taken by Hayley is an absolute dream! She made us feel totally comfortable, even in the more intimate and romantic poses. I do not consider myself to feel natural in front of the camera, but with Hayley’s guidance, I felt we were enabled to be captured in our most natural states. Hayley’s photos caught us in the sweet moments and embraces in between each pose, which ended up being some of my most treasured pictures!
Hayley truly has an eye for capturing the deep connection between couples, which is one of the strongest differentiators from other photographers. My fiancé and I could not be more pleased with our photos from our engagement session! Truly an exceptional experience!

Hayley was SO flexible to work with. It was a really busy time for us in addition to planning our wedding and we lived in a different state than her and our venue. I really appreciated that she let us ask any and every question that we had and would set video calls when we couldn't meet in person and I knew she was really dedicated to helping us obtain the type of pictures that we wanted.
I LOVE our wedding photos, especially the ones of just the two of us. She caught so many sweet in-between moments that captured the realness of the entire day. Posed pictures are beautiful but I think this is one of the most important qualities of wedding photos. When I look at mine, I can remember specific conversations being had and emotions being felt because the pictures captured what was actually going on.
