“Before hiring my wedding photographer, I was mostly afraid that they wouldn't be able to capture all of the special moments I envisioned! From the first look with Dad and bridesmaids, to the first kiss at the altar, to the emotional first dance shots, there are SO many moments to capture and I was nervous about hiring someone who could get it all, especially when only hiring one photographer! Hayley absolutely blew my expectations away!! She captured EVERYTHING, all while seeming like part of the party and making every part of the day so enjoyable! I still have no idea how she captured all of the moments that she did by herself, but I am SO GLAD that I trusted her with what is in my opinion, one of the most important parts of the wedding! I also wanted photos that were carefully and beautifully edited. I love Hayley's warm tones, and she put so much effort into making every photo look the best it could. She also cared about us as a couple, and put time and effort into getting to know us and what we wanted, which added the best personal feel to the day, rather than a standard, commercialized photo company! My favorite part of working with her was how fun and carefree she was, how easy she made it to pose for photos, and how relaxed she made me feel as the bride!! She kept us on our timeline, while taking flawless photos along the way! She would even give me gentle reminders to take the moment with my new husband, and I'm so grateful for that! When recommending Hayley to all of my engaged friends (and even those who aren't yet!!) I always make sure to tell them that hiring Hayley was the easiest decision I made while planning my wedding. As the bride, stress and worries can easily get the best of you, but with Hayley there for the entire day, I felt nothing but relaxed, excited, and ready to enjoy my perfect day!! Our wedding photos now hang all around our home, and I'm so thankful for these beautiful images that captured both our wedding and our real life love story.”

“Hayley is an absolute DREAM to work with. She is a blast to be around and made the process so easy. Her talents astound me still and I have literally printed almost every picture she took because I want to save them forever. If you want someone who takes incredible pictures, is great at finding natural poses and making the whole process an enjoyable time, Hayley is your girl.”

“My wife and I hired Hayley to photograph our wedding and it was the BEST decision we made. The biggest fear we had before hiring Hayley was being able to schedule/plan everything for our wedding in Illinois while most of her time was spent in Texas. This "fear" immediately went away because of how incredibly organized, prepared and excited Hayley was about working with us.

Our favorite parts of working with Hayley is her personality and of course, her talent! Hayley is not only the kindest, most down to earth and fun-spirited person you will meet, but her ability to capture our wedding day and all of our guests truly made it our best day ever. She photographed everything we discussed and more with such a quick turnaround time when editing the photos. She's seriously the best!

We would recommend Hayley to anyone who needs a wedding photographer, or a photographer for anything honestly. She is so fun and really helps to make those who may not consider themselves to be the most photogenic really feel comfortable on camera. Hayley is also super easy to work with. If you want to get some amazing photos, while also sharing in some laughs and fun, Hayley is definitely your girl!”

“I highly recommend Hayley!! She made me and my fiancé feel so comfortable the instant we met her! Our engagement session just turned into a photo shoot filled with laughter and fun! She also had a ton of suggestions for poses and different ways to capture us as a couple, which I loved!! She was super flexible with scheduling and always replied quickly to any questions I had! Overall, the best experience I’ve had with a photographer.”

“Hayley did SUCH a great job at our wedding and engagements! Hiring a photographer for the biggest day of your life is kinda scary and it's hard to choose from so many talented people in our area. It's nerve-wracking to trust someone else to capture ALL of those memories, but Hayley did an amazing job. She captured everything we missed that day and then some. Our favorite thing about working with Hayley was how calm and down to earth she was; and just goofy enough to make my terribly camera shy husband feel comfortable. Her friendly personality made her such a joy to work with and she had the perfect photographer quality of being everywhere at once and never in anybody's way! I think choosing your photographer has a lot to do with the person, not just their work, and Hayley was definitely the best choice for us!”

“My biggest fear before hiring Hayley was the distance!!! It was basically what you would call a destination engagement session. We were traveling to Chicago and wanted to have a shoot. I went out on a whim after seeing her Instagram page (I fell in love with her photography style) and contacted her for availability. I had no idea what to expect & feared that she wasn’t going to 1) show up or 2) not capture the photos we envisioned for the session. Lucky for us, neither of those two things happened!

There were honestly so many things that we loved about working with Hayley, so it’s hard to pick just one! But first things first, it’s always nice to be comfortable with the photographer you’re working with; so we were happy that we got the chance to actually meet and grab a drink before the session. It helped by getting to know each other & made the vibe feel more relaxed. We also LOVED all the prompts that Hayley had us do. It may have looked or felt silly, but we had such a great time & the photos came out wayyyy better than you’d picture it in your mind! But the one thing that I loved about working with Hayley was that she really listened to what you wanted. We wore particular shoes that we had to have in our photos, so she figured out a way to get THE SHOT and she wasn’t afraid of trying different angles to see what would look the best.

If I were to recommend Hayley to my best friend, I would say to book a session with her because you won’t regret it! It felt more like some friends hanging out than it did a professional photo shoot. (Which I love, because we don’t like that kind of “attention” to begin with). You can tell that she has a passion for what she does, and her work is hands down worth every penny!”

“Hayley is amazing!!! I had to find someone quick for my short notice date, and she was so quick to answer back. She also consistently stayed in touch with me, answered my many questions, and was just as excited about my wedding as me. Hayley made it super easy and made everything go so smoothly! I could not have picked a better person to capture our day.”

“When hiring a photographer, we were afraid we wouldn’t be satisfied with the photos we received and that our paid money would be for nothing. Also there are so many different styles, it was hard to figure out what we really liked. But with Hayley, she made us feel like supermodels and we had fun which I believe resulted in natural and beautiful photos that we love!!! She made us feel comfortable and we loved that she had us play games/things to do that lead to natural looking shots. We didn’t have one moment where we didn’t know what to do or we felt awkward! Hayley is affordable, fun to work with, takes amazing photos and you get your photos edited quickly! We loved every moment of our shoot with her and we are still obsessed with our photos that we will have forever.”

“When planning my wedding, I hardly knew where to begin. I knew that photography was something I needed to splurge on. When looking further, I found that Hayley’s packages were very reasonable and her pictures were great quality! I was so overwhelmed with planning especially the day of timeline. Hayley explained every detail and gave me many suggestions on the day of timeline. I would highly recommend Hayley! She is kind, professional and our wedding photos came out so perfectly. She truly captured our love in photographs.”

“Hayley is beyond talent!! She completely brought out the best in us and gave us something we will cherish for life. I totally thought we would be awkward and not know what to do but she walked us through it all and made it super easy fun. She even brought a little surprise to help us relax. Do yourself a favor and book her, you won’t regret it.”
