behind the lens

I started my own photography business during my first year out of college thinking it would be more of a fun hobby where I could make some extra money, but over the past 4 years it has truly turned into something so much more. 

Hey friends! My name is Hayley and when I'm not behind the camera you can most likely find me roaming the isles of Target, watching football with my amazing boyfriend, or taking my two pups on walk. I've always been a fan of true love and have had a passion for capturing special moments.

"Hayley was recommended to me by a friend who had used her for engagement photos! I loved how her photos turned out, so it was clear she was the one I wanted for my engagement photos too! From the moment we walked up, she had such a sweet, upbeat, fun energy! She made us feel 110% comfortable the entire time - telling us exactly what to do, coming over to move those stray hairs out of my face, doing everything to get that perfect shot! I’m SO excited about my save the dates because of her work! She has such a beautiful style and a lovable personality! If you’re looking for a photographer, look no more, you found her! Thanks so much Hayley! I will cherish these photos forever!!!"

"We knew Hayley through a mutual friend and I was always obsessed with her photography and beautiful images. Once Jim and I were engaged, I knew exactly who I wanted to take our engagement photos!! Hayley was so responsive, helpful, kind, upbeat, and so sweet! She made us feel so comfortable during our session guiding us from start to finish. It was hot, but it was so worth it!!! She sent us our gallery in two weeks and each image she sent literally took my breath away. We are definitely going to use her for all of our future photography needs!"

"Hayley was recommended to us by a mutual friend and once I saw her work I knew that she was the one I wanted to capture our special day. She was so organized with each detail from start to finish and was so responsive with all of her communication. Our engagement session was such fun and the images she sent us were beyond anything I could have ever imagined. She was such a blessing on our wedding day making us feel comfortable and she was such a sweetheart to be around. She made me feel like the most gorgeous bride and made sure we were both having fun throughout the day. She captured every single detail and gave us life long memories that we will cherish forever. We 110% recommend her to anyone who is looking for a photographer. She is so talented and has become a close personal friend as well!"

"Hayley was recommended to us by one of our very close couple friends who had hired her to shoot their wedding. I looked at her work and was totally blown away. I instantly fell in love with her light and airy feel and without question knew I wanted her to take our engagement pictures. We reached out and she responded that same day! We booked our session and I couldn't wait to work with her. Tyler and I arrived to our first location and instantly fell in love with her welcoming and bubbly personality. The three hours we spent with her FLEW by and I couldn't believe how much fun we had. She sent us our gallery in one week and each photo she sent us was beyond beautiful. She was such a delight to work with and we definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!!"
