Hey,
I’m Hailes.

Years ago, I lost my grandfather and my close friend, and even to this day, the photos I have of them mean everything to me. You can relive countless memories in a single photo, and the ones I have are why I’m inspired to preserve these memories for others.

I’m a wedding and elopement photographer who loves to get dirty, crack jokes, and capture those unexpectedly emotional moments you never saw coming. You can spend a year planning your wedding day and you’re still going in blindly—that’s the beauty of it. Something you never planned for (like snow during your May wedding, your flower girl tripping and rolling down the aisle, the best man forgetting the wedding band, or your dad ripping has pants on the dance floor—yep it’s ALL happened) might just become your favorite memory. You’ll want someone behind the camera that expects the unexpected.

Georgia born, Virginia based, and ready to travel wherever your adventure takes us, there is no location too far and no wedding too unconventional. I am not about fake laughs and prom poses and awkward hand-holding. I am about real love, real life, and all the quirks it comes with.

 
 

Here’s some freebie facts about me, but you’ll get to know more when we hang out…

uno: I love Chik-fil-A fries (but not the butts, gross), tacos, & fruit roll ups

dos: I’ll watch Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings all day any day

tres: YouTube vlogger romances and cat videos, thank you very much

*bonus: those illustrations above are inspired by actual tattoos on my body!

we have a lot of fun here.

 i love my couples so much and can’t wait to get to know you too.

shoutout to my people for the street cred.

Hailey was the absolute BEST to work with! She goes above and beyond to make the happiest moments in your life that much more special. I am usually very awkward in front of cameras, but Hailey is so encouraging and makes you feel like a million bucks! All of the images turned out GORGEOUS and all of my friends at my wedding were telling me how cool the photographer was. If you are looking for a photographer for any event, book Hailey!! I will definitely be using her for any occasion my new husband and I have in the future!!

Hailes is seriously the G.O.A.T of photography. She’s such a worthwhile investment and my husband and I (even after the photographed our engagement and wedding) still hire her quarterly to take photos of us for my business. She quickly became one of my dearest friends after our engagement, we feel so comfortable with her! She’s super creative and embraced our awkwardness because lets face it, not all of us are comfortable in front of a camera! She makes us laugh and fits our warm and moody style. We couldn’t recommend her enough!

Hailey was the perfect fit for our wedding day!
She made us and our bridal party feel so at ease! She was so down to earth and fit the style of our day perfectly. She also seemed to work really well with the other vendors that were there throughout the day. Her photos were EXACTLY what I had dreamed my wedding pictures of being.
Her style is natural and captured the raw emotion so incredibly well. Hailey is great all around and I’m so thankful for all she did for us during and after the wedding!!
