Choosing our wedding photographer was one of the more intimidating parts of our wedding planning - we knew these photos would be some of the only tangible parts of our wedding day we could hold onto forever. Hiring Haylie as a our wedding day p...
hotographer was one THE BEST decisions we made during our wedding planning.
Haylie’s photography work certainly speaks for itself, but the bonus was that she’s also a genuinely kind, humble and impressive woman.
During our first phone call, Haylie was intentional about getting to know us, hearing about our love story and understanding what we envisioned for our wedding day. After that call, I knew we had to hire her! She was experienced, organized, and really fun to talk with!
As a bride,I knew I would be spending a lot of time with our photographer before our ceremony and during our wedding day. It was important to me that we choose someone who mirrored our excitement about our day and recognized what pieces of the day were most important to us. I wanted a photographer who would keep me calm yet give me confidence that the things out of my control were under control. She excelled at all of that on our wedding day!! She and her second shoot captured SO many amazing moments before, during, and after our wedding ceremony and afterwards. She even negotiated some of the challenging family relationships and made sure all the group photos went quick and smoothly after our ceremony! We got back >250 photos/hour - these were all high quality, well curated, and edited (just the right amount). We didn’t get an overwhelming amount of photos and had to dig through to pick our favorites- she put the work in to curate the best of the best and captured SO many moments I would have never seen without her behind the camera.
Haylie was everything I was looking for in a wedding photographer AND MORE!
Three months prior to our wedding she shot our engagement photos at Camp North End. This was a great chance for the three us to get to know each other and for my husband and I to practice posing together. We printed these engagement photos into an album and used them as our guest book for our wedding day - everyone loved it! Two weeks prior to our wedding, Haylie shot my bridal portraits at an indoor studio I found -I’m so glad we did that together because it took away the need to spend time of individual portraits of just me and detail shots of my dress on my actual wedding day. Haylie was so encouraging during each photo shoot- she makes you FEEL like a million bucks - then she gives you these phenomenal photos were you actually LOOK like a million bucks!!!! When you feel good, you look good and Haylie can make any couple have fun during their photo shoots and feel good!!!!
I will be forever grateful for every moment Haylie captured and the talented work she put into each photo she has given us. Along the way, she constantly communicated what she needed from us and we planned the wedding day timeline together. She also spoiled us with special deliveries and intentional gifts - but I can’t spoil that - you’ll have to hire her yourself to see!!!!
