Hayley was the best decision - she's amazing
I spent so much time researching potential wedding photographers, and am so glad we ended up getting to work with Hayley! From the start, she was easy to communicate with, her work is amazing, and I knew she was the one. When we met her to take engagement photos, my now husband commented that he was actually more excited about the wedding because he felt so comfortable taking photos with her! A lot of time may pass in between engagement photos and the wedding, but Hayley was great with communication and understanding our needs for the wedding. I didn't have a lot of requirements or specifics in what I was looking for, and I fully trusted Hayley with her ideas and recommendations. I can't say how happy we were to work with her. She's a pleasure to be around and truly made our wedding weekend so much fun! I would highly recommend working with Hayley and hope we'll have the chance to do so again in the future!Sent on 05/10/2019

Hayley is amazing!
I reached out to Hayley through a referral from one of her business partners, and right from the beginning she was personable, professional and had amazing suggestions and direction for me (I was super disorganised!!). Even though we didn't meet until the wedding day, as I am based on Vancouver Island, she kept in constant communication and I felt confident that all of our photo needs would be met. On the day, Hayley was great, super flexible, helped us with our preparation and ideas, and really got into the celebrations. She was also able to put some of the photos taken earlier into the day onto a slideshow so that guests could enjoy them later in the evening :) I would highly recommend Hayley, the sneak peek photos we have seen so far are truly beautiful and we can't wait to see the rest!!Sent on 28/09/2018

One of the best decisions we’ve maid while planning the wedding!
Not only is Hayley incredibly pleasant and easy to work with, but she also helped us out a lot given that our entire photoshoot was outside in rainy weather. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone!!Sent on 24/05/2018

Professional, Lovely, Delightful to work with!
My husband and I couldn't have been happier with Hayley! After meeting with a few photographers, we knew Hayley was the perfect match for us. Her communication, organization, planning and professionalism was spot on from day one!
To be honest, my husband wasn't keen on being photographed - he's a little camera shy. When we met with Hayley on our engagement shoot, she knew right away what to say and where to look to have us laughing all day. Her familiarity with our engagement shoot location and venue location was excellent. We didn't have to worry about a thing! Her charisma and personality kept us feeling comfortable in front of the camera day on our wedding day and we (my husband especially) are VERY happy with the results.
On our wedding day, Hayley was very professional with our guests. She took photos of anyone who wanted them. She and her second photographer were very organized in rallying up all our relatives to take family photos. We were super happy that they were on schedule (even ahead at times) so we could enjoy cocktail hour with our guests before the reception. We REALLY appreciated the cards she made that included a link to our wedding photos for our guests to take home. It's small details like this that make your special day even better.
All in all, we would highly recommend Hayley as your photographer!Sent on 08/05/2018

Hayley was so great to work with. She was the photographer for our wedding and she did such an amazing job. She makes you feel so relaxed and comfortable while and being so organized and professional at the same time. It was a pleasure to have her at our wedding. Also, the pictures turned out great (and I am very picky)! I would (and already have) recommend her to anyone getting married. A photographer ends up being such a big part of your day and it worth it to have someone you enjoy being around and who makes your day easier.Sent on 09/02/2018
