Hayley is just beyond amazing and talented. She took some photos of me for my business and of my boyfriend and I and let me tell you, I have NEVER loved any photos more. She was so relaxed and made us both feel extremely comfortable. It was more like hanging out than posing for pictures! She was extremely timely about showing us some previews and getting our gallery to us so quick! Hayley is incredible at capturing candid, sweet moments and is such a sweet person herself!

We finally got to see what our relationship looks like through someone else’s eyes and wow, I cried looking through our gallery because every single picture in it was authentic. Every facial expression, touch, and movement captured was genuine. Nothing was faked or forced, it was just us being us. Hayley truly put together a galley that represents Robby and I’s relationship. Hayley is amazing to work with, she always gives you her very best and exactly what you want. I honestly couldn’t have asked fo anything more.

There’s so much I could say about Hayley!  She’s genuinely kindhearted and friendly, and her laid back personality just instantly puts you at ease. She puts in so much effort to make sure that the pictures come out perfectly, and she goes above and beyond to ensure the best possible experience for the people she works with. I first worked with Hayley in the fall of 2017 when she did my senior pictures. I’d discovered her on Instagram and had instantly fallen in love with her beachy style. She’s honestly one of the most genuine people I know, and I would gladly drive hours to work with her again! Hayley is such a talented photographer and an all around exceptional human being. I have loved every picture she’s taken and I am beyond glad that I’ve worked with her!

Our family was traveling to Wilmington, NC for a vacation and my husband and I had wanted to do anniversary photos since we had been married on the beach there. I searched and searched and as a photographer myself I knew I wanted someone that I could trust to authentically tell the story of our family and also of our marriage in our special place and she did AMAZING. She traveled there without hesitation, was so incredibly sweet and kind, and just so fun while allowing us to be ourselves in every way. These photos will always be some of my most favorite ever and I am still looking at them all of the time. She captured the essence of “us” and I’m so grateful for that and for her. Her heart and passion shine through her and her business!

If there were words to describe Hayley and her gift of photography, they would be compassionate, intricate, perfection and loving. Her love for photography and the people in front of her camera are second to none. Hayley makes you feel comfortable in front of her camera and in your own skin, she moves throughout your session never once making you feel like you’re just another person on her journey in photography. She stayed up until 3 in the morning, just to capture my husbands homecoming, she understood when we showed up late to a session and never once made us feel bad about it. I can’t wait to see the others her photography impacts and she makes memories for. Hayley is the best of the best, and is always refining her art. I couldn’t recommend Hayley enough. She’s truly a blessing.

I absolutely could never recommend Hayley enough!! I would recommend her to every single person that we know without hesitation. I discovered her wonderful talent after seeing a friend post photos Hayley had taken of her, I simply fell in love with her style and skill. I ended up contacting her to talk about getting photos done when my husband and I moved to NC. From that first conversation Hayley was so sweet, caring, and truly passionate about her photography and making sure we were as comfortable as possible. I, like many people, was hesitant about having photos done because I worried it’d be awkward but let me tell you Hayley made it the most fun, laugh-filled experience; no awkwardness there! That’s coming from my husband as well; he really enjoyed being able to joke around and just be himself while she captured such beautiful moments that perfectly define us and our relationship. Hayley is all around a sweet, genuine person PLUS a fantastic, skilled photographer! On top of it her pricing is so fair, especially for such a beautiful investment. I can’t thank her enough for giving us so many gorgeous photos to cherish for years to come. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

There are so many reasons I’d recommend Hayley to others. But I’ll only make a few. She is so kind. From the very start before we even met she was so sweet. When we did meet she was so down to earth. She made shooting so easy.  She made sure it was mine and my husbands style while also using her strengths. She was up for any ideas we had while also guiding us through the shoot. My husband and I even did a “spicy” shoot on the beach and it was totally comfortable which I was so nervous for. Her edits are GORGEOUS. You can tell how hard she works to make her clients happy. Unlike other photographers she keeps you updated on when she is editing your photos and always sends out previews that makes it so hard to wait for the rest. We love her and we will be sad to see her leave NC but also we are so glad she will get to spread her wings in Hawaii. I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
