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 made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera, despite us both thinking we would be horrible at posing. Our wedding was on a VERY hot day and she got through all of our portraits, wedding party, and family photos in an extremely efficient manner without compromising on quality or quantity.
My dad said it best: "These photos are beautiful! Your photographer and her crew are exceptional. The storyboard they created captured everything so well. The photographers have an exceptional ability to capture emotions, feelings and relationships right in the moment!"

Hailey took the time leading up to the wedding to help us perfect our timeline, give professional and personal advice, and make sure we felt comfortable about how the day was going to go. On the wedding day, she is someone who you want by your side. Hailey continuously kept us calm, ensured that we enjoyed the present moment, and captured the raw and pure joy that a wedding will bring! She is organized, direct and talented beyond words. We are so grateful that she captured our special moments!
We love Hailey! As a professional wedding planner, we work with a lot of photographers. Hailey stands among the best. Every wedding we've done together she is kind, collected, and so caring for her couples! Not only does she take beautiful photographs but she is professional with a timeline (as a wedding pro that is KEY!) She knows when to get a good photo, when to get a candid and also when to let you be and enjoy your guests. And that in my opinion sets the best apart. Absolutely adore any wedding we get to work together.
