Grab yourself a latte and get cozy, let’s get to know your photographer!
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 in front of my editing computer, at my favorite local coffee shop visiting with the dogs out front, or adventuring outdoors whenever I get the chance. I’m an introverted extrovert who loves to curl up with a good book in a rainstorm, sing along to every song that comes on, and binge watch shows on Netflix with my boyfriend for date night!
If I had to describe my style of photography, I would call it dramatic, clean, and romantic. Like real life, just a touch better. My aesthetic is a bit more fine art and just a touch extra! I love a bit of glam, and am always willing to go the extra mile to create that “Wow” shot for each of my clients, and I love working with clients that enjoy creating stunning art with me! I personally love being able to capture the detail of the sunsets and skies in the backgrounds of my images so that I can show off the complimentary beauty of the chosen location, which only serves to make my images pop that much more. As for colors, I like to keep it fairly natural and more true to life color-wise than the popular "Dark and Moody" style. This past year I’ve fallen in love with using flash to add beautiful light into my portraits, to add crispness and drama, and to take them to the next level. I can’t wait to continue expanding my knowledge and capabilities to continue to make better and better images!
You want to know what lights me up? Making my clients feel like they stepped right out of a real-life fairytale when they look at my photos. Like I brought out their inner Beyoncé, and I’m showing them off having a great time when they’re looking their best. Helping clients who swear that they’re awkward in front of the camera, feel comfortable and love their images. Seeing their reactions to looking at their hand-delivered prints. Getting to document and preserve some of the happiest memories in a couple’s life together,
This is my third year documenting couples and weddings, and I know that I made the right choice to pursue this path when I end every wedding exhausted and with tired feet, but with my cheeks and heart aching from smiling so much at all of the love, moments, and memories that I’ve been blessed to document that day! I love my work and am truly passionate about it, which drives me to provide the best services that I can to my clients. I'm dedicated to mastering my craft, and that means lots of hard work behind the scenes, and lots of studying top photographers to keep up to date on modern editing styles, the latest lighting techniques, and the best technology to make sure that I am providing the best images possible to my clients, and constantly growing my skills.
"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!"

“For years I've wanted some nice non-selfie photos of my partner and I. We honestly had never had a picture of us that wasn't taken on a cell phone. Every once in a while, I think it's important to capture the moments in your life and have it done professionally. It also has to be done by the right person who knows what you're looking for. Ladies and gentleman when I got my photos back from Hailey, I couldn't have been happier. Not only did she manage to capture some great shots but she really got some beautiful moments that will forever display the love I share with my man. I'm so grateful to have found her, for she goes above and beyond what we ever expected. I really look forward to sharing her recommendation with some of my friends who have recently gotten engaged , so that they can have those moments frozen in time. “

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 knack 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!”
“Hailey made my boyfriend feel so comfortable and in our element! She even told us how to pose… and brought me a pop-up changing room so I could do outfit changes comfortably.
Her vibrant personality and eye for perfectness was an amazing experience. Overall, We loved her work and genuine aura and we can't wait to work with her again in the near 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.”

“We've worked with Hailey on multiple occasions and the experiences, as well as the results, have all been fantastic. She does an amazing job of scouting out locations ahead of time and knows where and when the perfect moments will be. I love that she brings props to the shoots and really puts forth a lot of effort to make the event memorable and fun… Her patience and skill really make a difference.”
