southern wedding & engagement photography for north carolina brides

even more memorable

making your day

Hi there! My name is Hayley and I am so happy that you stopped by! I am a southern wedding and portrait photographer based out of the Raleigh, North Carolina and my passion is capturing life's most precious moments and turning them into forever memories. 

I am a lover of warm sunshine, sweet puppy kisses, and iced coffee. When I'm not behind the camera, you can usually find me browsing the aisles of Target, cooking dinner, or taking my two fur babies to the park.

I absolutely love what I do and I am SO blessed to have a business that allows for me to meet amazing people like you. 

You've found yourself here most likely because you are recently engaged and I cannot wait to hear more of your story!

and so much congrats!


Let's chat about how we can make your day perfect and we'll make a plan together that will help everything run smoothly while still capturing all those special moments like the first look, the first dance and the candid ones with your family and friends. 

Planning your wedding can be stressful, but finding the perfect photographer is about to get really simple!

Elizabeth, bride

"Hayley was a joy to work with through our entire wedding planning process. Prior to our wedding, she was incredibly organized and responsive. On the actual wedding day, Hayley was incredibly professional, personable, and knowledgeable. My husband and I are a little nervous when it comes to being in front of a camera, but she really made us feel at ease in front of the camera. We highly recommend Hayley's services for any of your photography needs!"

Katelyn, bride

She guided us every step of the way from the booking process to the gallery delivery. Couldn't recommend her enough to those looking for a wedding photographer. 10/10!!"

Paige, bride

"Throughout the entire process Hayley was always organized, punctual and professional, but more importantly, she was warm and friendly. Her photos are bright and graceful and they captured many planned moments but also many spontaneous moments from our day! We will always appreciate the time and effort Hayley put into the photos she took for us. She has a passion for photography and it shines through her work!"
