northern california wedding photographer
Wedding photography should be, first and foremost, about the honest story of a couple’s day. Cheeks kissed, heirloom gifts exchanged, sweet words whispered. For the most part I’ll be in the background, documenting the day as it candidly unfolds. When it comes time for portraits, I’ll place you in the best light and ask you to squeeze close together; to hold each other as you would if no one else was around; to bring her face close to yours and to wrap your arms around his waist; to soak up these minutes alone before you’re surrounded by celebration for the rest of the night.
You focus on celebrating; I'll focus on photographing and problem-solving and keeping your timeline flowing.
When you're looking back on your photos with future generations, I want you to remember not just how the day looked, but how it felt.
My goal is to limit my impact on the organic moments; I'm there to document the day as it naturally happens.

Hailey is a dream photographer! I am a venue manager and see hundreds of wedding albums. Hailey immediately stood out with her professionalism and attention to the bride's desires before the wedding and on wedding day. Her full wedding gallery was stunning from details, ceremony, and all the portraits. Her ability to capture the light for their outdoor ceremony at peak sunlight is impressive to say the least! I can't recommend her more highly!
and other kind words
Hailey was so protective of our time on our wedding day. She worked with our families so well while also prioritizing the photos we wanted and portraits of just the two of us. She was great about blending in during both the ceremony and reception, so the camera was never intruding on the moment. (In fact, we have some photos now where, at the time, we didn't even realize Hailey was there to capture it!) She also flowed with our other vendors so seamlessly and had such a great handle on everything that I never felt like I had to worry about photos.
I don't even know where to begin with how AMAZING my experience was with Hailey. From our first zoom meeting to our wrap up e-mail, Hailey has never felt like a vendor but a friend. When we had to change our plans from a big white wedding to a small backyard wedding, Hailey was nothing but supportive. My husband and I are not huge fans of the posed photographs and Hailey captured our true authentic selves beautifully; we always felt comfortable. I can't wait to use Hailey again to capture more memories to come.
