Hey there! I'm Hailey and it's great to meet you! I was born and raised in the Bay Area, and have been lucky enough to grow up developing a love for the great California outdoors! Most days you can find me at my local coffee shop, or adventuring outdoors. If I'm known for three things, its for my love of puppies, rosé, and adventures!
People often refer to me as empathetic, caring, and enthusiastic, and there is nothing I get more enthusiastic about than capturing beautiful, emotional moments for couples in a magical way! You want to know what lights me up? When I give someone a photo of themselves that feels like it truly showcases their love or personality and they are blown away! When I get to document the way you smile when they kiss your cheek, that laugh that's just so you, or that gentle caress of their hand on your jaw that let me know that I'm capturing the essence of your relationship or personality. The things I am most passionate about in life are making people smile, photography, and my other half Matt!
I love to photograph couples who are totally into romance, adventure, and the beauty of the outdoors! I am so blessed to live in such an stunning place as the Bay Area and that I get to create such romantic, and real moments for so many of my clients from my couples sessions to my weddings! I really enjoy any opportunity to get outside with my couples and going to local and state parks to capture nature's beauty and incorporate the environment into my shoots. Not only is it a gorgeous background, but it's also a lovely reminder of the beauty that's all around us.
When I'm not busy working on my edits, I'm often watching YouTube, exploring the Bay Area with Matt, or spending time catching up with friends over a glass of wine.
I've been working in the wedding industry doing photography for two years now, I've been doing photography for about three years, and I started off entirely self taught. I'm dedicated to my craft, and for me, that means hard work, hands-on practice, and lots of studying from my favorite photographers to keep up to date on modern styles, techniques, and editing.
If I had to describe my style of photography, I would call it Muted + Moody. I personally love a bit of a darker look for my images, as I enjoy being able to keep the detail in the light areas and backgrounds of my images. I definitely have a moody streak when it comes to my posing and compostition, however as for colors, I like to keep it fairly natural and more true to life color-wise than the popular "Dark and Moody" style, without going overboard on the color and saturation. I prefer this more muted and dreamy look as I think it's a great balance between classic "clean" photography edits and more modern styles that will keep your images looking great for years to come, no matter how the trends may change.
I've been blessed to be featured on both Junebug Weddings in 2017, and in Voyage LA Magazine in 2018, and I look forward to continuing to put out great content and collaborate with other publications this coming wedding season as well.

"As a fellow wedding vendor I have worked with many photographers; Hailey sets herself apart from the majority of them! She way she choreographed our couples portraits with such ease and made us feel comfortable was so refreshing! It’s hard to come by a photographer that really takes the time to get to know you and your love story. The quality of her photos and the amount of time she spends getting them just right, goes to show exactly how much she loves her art and how dedicated she is to providing a perfect product, every time. It was such a pleasure having Hailey do our couples session- she’s amazing! HIGHLY recommend for weddings, elopements, and engagement sessions!"

Absolutely fantastic quality of work and style. Hailey is a wonderfully talented and motivated photographer that will get you shots that surpass every prior expectation that you may have for a shoot. It was a very personable and fun experience; Hailey has a nack for making you comfortable in front of the lens! My girlfriend and I had the best time while the shoot was ongoing and we got some amazing shots out of a single session. Definitely recommend and will be in contact again!
Hailey is by far an AMAZING photographer with a passion for what she does! I have had the pleasure to work with Moments In Time Media a few times now and am always had a fun and positive experience. No matter what setting or occasion, Hailey always makes sure you are comfortable and natural in front of the camera. I look forward to another experience working with Hailey in the future!
My husband and I are very camera shy and not comfortable in front of a lens, in fact we run the other way when pictures are being taken. But our session with Hailey was relaxed and easygoing. She helped us to focus on each other instead of posing with a smile, and the results were natural, beautiful and timeless. She uses natural light, and knows just when to shoot. I was really impressed with her professionalism and the results.

Hailey did a great job with a big family portrait session for three families of four (including 2 babies/toddlers) plus two grandparents. She came to our family home and was able to effectively use the natural setting and lighting to the best advantage. During the entire session, Hailey was patient, enthusiastic, and responsive to our suggestions and ideas. The portraits came out terrific and everybody loved them. She got some amazing action shots, along with more traditional and fun group photos. I'm so glad we were able to capture this moment in our family's history with such beautiful images. Also, she's very generous with her photo session packages including prints and digital/sharable files, and communicated well both before and after the session to help us prepare and keep us informed. Highly recommend!
