Hi! My name is Hailey Hotfelter and I am a videographer and photographer living in the Bay Area who specializes in capturing your most precious moments in time. Whether that be surprising a loved one with photos or a video of your engagement, savoring your engagement bliss with a photoshoot, or capturing the love between two people and their loved ones on their special day, you can be sure that you will see the chemistry of that moment in my work.
I have a love for both photography as well as video and like to work in both mediums depending on how I want to capture a particular moment. I think that the true beauty of emotion and love shines through in those most candid of moments. A bubbling laugh here, a shared smile there, that truly shows the love and adoration between a couple. My goal is to be able to capture as much authentic emotion as I can during a precious moment, and to be able to give it to you in something akin to a time capsule that you'll always be able to look back at.
Though I am Based out of the San Francisco Bay Area, I am available for travel all over California and the West Coast. I am also available for elopements and weddings along the coast of California and out of San Francisco City Hall and other local City Halls.
Authenticity and emotion are where I place my priorities. If you do as well, then we'd make a great team and I can't wait to meet you!
Want to know more about me?
Well, for starters I am a huge Harry Potter fan and a massive bookworm ( I love historical fiction, sci-fi, and personal growth books)! I am obsessed with succulents and peonies, as well as gardening and growing my own veggies. I love white wine and rosé, and white cheddar mac and cheese is my go-to for a lazy night in. I'm not so secretly a big foodie! My family has an adorable Yorkshire Terrier named Chloe who is my favorite furry friend ever, and I hope to get my own dog in the next year or two, fingers crossed it's a corgi! Best of all, I am a die-hard romantic who is lucky enough to have met her own prince charming!
I love the mountains and I love getting to travel, my favorite place on earth would probably be Yosemite. I have been lucky enough to travel to Greece, Haiti, Jamaica, Mexico, and Grand Cayman, and I have a travel list a mile long of places I still want to see!
Here are some some of my favorite pictures from my trip to Alaska this summer! :)
