Chelsea, bride

"Hayley was recommended to me by a friend who had used her for their engagement and wedding photos. I took one look at her work and absolutely fell in love with her style! I reached out and instantly connected with Hayley's warm and bubbly personality. She was so incredibly helpful throughout the entire process and was such a pleasure to work with. My husband and I couldn't have been more happy hiring Hayley as our photographer!!"

Samantha, bride

"My husband and I used Hayley for our engagement and wedding photos and it was the absolute best decision we could have made for our wedding day! Hayley made us feel totally comfortable in front of the camera and provided us with so much guidance. She was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish and we will cherish our photos forever!!!   

Madison, bride

"Hayley is such an amazing and genuine person inside and out! Her work is absolutely gorgeous and you can tell she really knows this industry! 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!!"

Claire, bride

"My husband and I can't even begin to describe how incredible it was to have Hayley photograph our wedding day!! From our first inquiry email to our album delivery, she was there every step of the way. Her photos are stunning and we LOVE her bright and colorful style. We couldn't recommend her enough!!"

Alexa, bride

Hayley was the best choice we could have made in a photographer! Our pictures speak for themselves as they turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined; However, the kudos goes to Hayley and her assistant photographer. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. Well prepared and well planned which made the entire photo process (getting ready, first look, and beyond) a total breeze. It also helps that she has a great sense of humor and was on top of any last mute adjustments that needed to be made. If I ever get married again - Hayley you had better be there to take the photos of me and Chris Evans.
