Jayleigh is by far the most amazing photographer I have ever worked with! Having been in the fashion industry for close to 2 decades I've had the opportunity to work with some elite photographers and beng a part time wedding/event planner I've worked with some talented wedding... Read More photographers! So when I was looking for a photographer for my own wedding I was SUPER picky! And we were trying to stay in a budget too! What you read on her website about her being invested in you as a couple and wanting to be apart of your love story is 100% truth! She is not a distant wedding vendor for your biggest day of your life she literally becomes a dear friend with a front row Sweet who epically documents every magical moment of your big day!!! Her work speaks for itself and each of her photos are masterpieces in and of itself! We get to relive those moments every time we look at our photos which is every day in our home! Whenever I've hired a photographer for work or personal I've always gone with the rule of hiring them based on one question?! When I look at their photography does it make it evoke emotion? And when I first saw Jayleigh's work it did just that! She captures the amount of passion, commitment, tenderness, strength, peace, joy, gratitude and love each couple has for one another in each photo! I knew after I look at her social media I had to hire her for our wedding, and I did! And I hired her for my last clients wedding in June 2017. And will hire her for every wedding I'm hired for from here on out! Hire her and I promise you will not regret it! She is a woman of her word which is hard to come by these days but is invaluable when planning and executing the biggest and most important day of your life . She will capture every moment you don't want to be missed on your wedding day and create ones you didn't even know you couldn't live without! I am her biggest fan speaking from the brides point a view and a wedding planners point of view!

Booked Jayleigh as my wedding photographer and we couldn't be happier!! Only had our engagement session so far, but we're already overly thrilled with her talent I have to share. I found Jayleigh on Instagram months before I was even engaged and knew her photos were what I... Read More wanted for my wedding! I loved her photos because she always captured the special moments between couples in a way that she made you feel it through the photo!! I was so nervous for the engagement shoot, we're not a 'photogenic' couple, and feared we wouldn't be able to get photos like the ones I'd spent months gawking over on her Instagram. She made all our nerves vanish within 5 minutes, she made us feel so comfortable and relaxed, like we could just be us in that moment. The pictures came out AMAZING!! I mean seriously amazing, everything and more that I was hoping for. Since the engagement shoot, she's felt more like a friend than a vendor. She listens to my ideas and puts in her professional opinion to make the outcome exactly what I was picturing, and she's never "pushy" on her preferences. She's just as excited for our wedding as we are and this is why you should book her!! She's in this business for the heart of it and puts you at ease knowing she wants to make it the best for you and your significant other, whatever that may be!

Where do I even begin? I met Jayleigh at a friends wedding back in December and she has since held a very special place in my heart. We spoke a little bit at the wedding and a few weeks later I found her on social media and saw some of her work and was beyond impressed. It was... Read More around that time that Jayleigh posted something on her facebook page about picking a lucky couple for a photoshoot. I commented on it with wishful thinking that she would chose us, and she did!! I was ecstatic. But then it came time to telling my boyfriend that he was now obligated to come on a romantic photoshoot with me. There was some hesitation but I finally had him convinced. Jayleigh was SO helpful leading up to the photoshoot. She sent us her vision which was imperative to us picking out the perfect outfit. We arrived for our photoshoot with some butterflies. I'm getting chills just thinking about this because that hour, my boyfriend and I somehow fell more in love with each other. Jayleigh made us feel so comfortable and at ease. She began snapping away and at some point, we forgot she was even there. It was THAT comfortable. We assumed she got some good photos, but we were not prepared for the unbelievable plethora of photos that were sent to us soon after. My boyfriend Caleb and I sat there speechless flipping through the photos and I don't think we even said a word to each other. They were truly incredible. We immediately bought canvas photos for our new house and even customized pillows with some of our photos. It was soon after Jayleigh posted something about doing a boudoir photoshoot for your significant other for Valentines day Now, the old me before getting to know Jayleigh would have never even considered doing this. But she made me feel so at ease. I chose a few different pieces of lingerei and made my way over to her house. The next hour was the most empowering experience. She made me feel comfortable, confident, and sexy. When I saw these photos, I cried. I could not believe it was me. I made a hard cover book for my boyfriend for valentines day and his jaw hit the ground as soon as he saw one photo. He now keeps this book in his closet and I'm sure takes a gander at it from time to time when i'm out of town ;) Whenever I need a little "pick-me-up" I go and look at those photos and immediately say "okay, you're a rockstar." I encourage every girl to do a boudoir shoot with jayleigh, even if its just for yourself!. We are planning an engagement and a wedding in the next couple of years and we will not even have to think twice about who will be our photographer. We love her work so much that we would be willing to even work around her schedule to book a date for our wedding. PLEASE do yourself a favor and use jayleigh for your next upcoming event. I promise you will not regret it!

Wow! wow! and more WOWS!!! I was so super impressed with with Jayleigh and how she does what she does. She was so sweet and gentle with us , she gave direction to us on how to pose so peacefully. Like it felt so natural everything felt so natural. My husband and I would be... Read More hugging and she would gently say " kiss her temple" and they way she would say it so softly made everything WE did and how we posed come out like that. Natural, soft and full love ! I would HIGHLy recommend her to anyone getting married that wants to have pictures and memories to last a life time! These photos are not just pictures. They are a memory that tells a story and a story that she helps make come to life over and over again every time i look at them. I will be forever grateful for her and for her special talent. THE BEST , THE VERY Best! Tears in my eyes just thinking about that day and how special she made it for us. " I got you" and she sure does!

Jayleigh Daniel is THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER I have EVER worked with. Her photos will continuously make you emotional. She gave so much direction (but not over the top) and helped our engagement photos look as natural and beautiful as possible. I have worked on many shoots, and she... Read More made me feel so comfortable. She is also the sweetest girl and after knowing her for 2 weeks I want to be her best friend! She gets photos back to you very quickly and answers any questions you need. She inspired me to get married in Hawaii, and if we do I will DEFINITELY be using her.

Aloha! STOP looking for a wedding photographer - you have found her. Seriously. My now husband and I have somewhat demanding jobs, and wanted amazing vendors, but wanted them to be self-sufficient. The first thing I read when I went to Jayleighs website "I got you." And let... Read More me tell ya'll - she really does. From the moment I booked her, she took care of everything. Our engagement photos were incredible. She gave me a few options, and honestly I just let her choose the best one. Seriously gorgeous pictures at sunset, and at 4 different locations. Listen to her - she rocks. On our wedding day we opted for the first look, solely to get the pictures taken prior to the ceremony/reception. We got married in Hawaii, and wanted to spend as much time with our out of town guests as possible. I told Jay once what the timeline/plan was, and she had it covered. Down to "Can you find a place for us to do the first look?" Her response "yeah girl - done." The wedding pictures were efficient - that sounds silly, but I get a little tired of pictures. She told us exactly what to do, and the pictures turned out far beyond my dreams. The BEST thing ever - less than 24 hours after our wedding we got 15 sneak peek edited pictures! GORGEOUS, pretty pictures for our friends/family to see. Bottom line: HIRE HER. If you can... she's pretty popular, and I can tell you why! I have bridesmaids who have already been married that are jealous they didn't hire her instead! If you want someone who handles herself like a professional, but is super cool/down to earth to work with - she is your girl. My husband and I have high expectations of people, and she exceeded all of them! Check out her instagram. Her style is incredible. We never thought of ourselves as photogenic people (still don't), but she can make anyone feel like a model. Best part is she captures the emotion. Multiple friends/family who were unable to attend our wedding "You can really see the love in your pictures." That is what you want. If someone told me I had to start over and replan my wedding, and only get to rehire one vendor I had already used - Jayleigh would be the one. HIRE HER!

Let me start by saying I wish we could give more than 5 stars! Jayleigh was a dream to work with.

I found Jayleigh on theknot.com, I was feeling super overwhelmed trying to plan a destination wedding and decided I would just start here. I started searching photographers in Hawaii and stumbled upon her vendor profile and boy am I glad I did! I clicked on her profile, read her... Read More bio, parused her Instagram and just fell in love with the idea of having her as our photographer. When you read through her reviews it’s clear that everyone has the same general consensus about this lovely lady.. she’s absolutely AMAZING. I sent her an inquiry by email in the morning and heard back from her by that afternoon, which is absolutely amazing considering I’m three hours ahead of her. Anytime I had questions, not matter what it was, she was so quick to get back to me and never made me feel like a bother. I am not a big fan of having my picture taken but knew, going into wedding planning, that the pictures were so important to me. Jayleigh has this way of making you feel so comfortable in front of the camera, she hypes you up and makes you feel absolutely amazing while she’s doing her thing. She was so great with posing and direction, which was perfect because in all the stress of planning a destination wedding I forgot to put together a list of must have photos. It put my soul at ease to know that we were in such great hands - it really was effortless with her guidance. She was even sweet enough to send us some sneak peek photos and I have seriously been obsessed with them! She has the perfect combination of talent and passion and we were so lucky and feel so honored to have been able to have her there to capture our special day! Thank you a million times Jayleigh!

Where do I even begin? Words cannot express how lucky I was to have Jayleigh photograph our elopement in Hawaii. Her work is amazing, but more importantly she as a person is amazing. When we first contacted her to photograph for us my first impression was that I was talking to a... Read More best friend. She has such a bubbly personality and really makes you feel comfortable. She was so kind and understanding to work with our budget and gave great advice on choosing a time for the elopement. Originally we had planned for a noon wedding, but she advised us to change it to be towards the evening, and oh my gosh am I glad we did! It was the perfect temp, perfect amount of light, and most importantly - we got to watch the sunset and had BEAUTIFUL photos because of her advice. The day of she continued to serve as a best friend to both of us. What a relief it was too because the officiant we chose was a major regret. Her personality and good company saved our elopement from being a disaster. I LOVE every single photo she took of us! Before her my hubby and I didn't have any professional photos of us, now all our friends are jealous and so envious of our wedding! She even took all my inspo photos and was somehow able to capture everything I had envisioned. There's that look that my husband always gives me - you know that look of "I'm so deeply in love with you" you can just see in someone's eyes but can't ever properly explain? - well there's one photo that she got of my hubby looking at me like this and when I saw it I cried so hard. These photos are something we will forever cherish, and choosing Jayleigh to be your photographer will be the best decision you ever make.

It was so personable and unlike the previous photographers. After we told her a little about us and what was important to us for photography, we talked about her packages and booking.

Hi hi! I’m in love with traveling anywhere & everywhere. Mama to one little dude, and currently engaged to the love of my life, so it's especially important to me to make everything super simple and fun, because I know how crazy wedding planning can get! I fell in love with this life & photography, & how fulfilled it makes my heart. When I’m not behind the camera, I also love: kickin’ it with my family, working out, eating and discovering new foods, horseback riding, beaching it, being spontaneous, & anything outdoors. I am in love with love & I'd be so honored to be a part of your day.
