Full Description
Hello! My name’s Hayley and I am an artistic documentary style wedding photographer based in the Northwest. I absolutely love photographing weddings; I think I have the best job in the world. To me there is something magical about being able to capture love stories through my photographs, and to know that those stories I have captured will be looked at over and over again for years to come. I’d describe my style as creative, relaxed and a little bit quirky. I like to think of myself as an artist as much as a photographer; my passion for taking a photograph is to capture and preserve life in the most beautiful way possible.

Words can't describe how happy we are
Hi Hayley, We have just watched our slideshow and I don’t know what to say… Wow, wow, wow. We absolutely love all the photos and it was so magical to relive the day. The slideshow actually made Ravi cry! We can’t believe how much work you must have put in and we were so impressed by how secretive you were taking photos as we barely noticed you during the reception. You’ve captured all the special moments, bonds between people and little details so perfectly and there are so many beautiful pictures I’m going to really struggle to narrow them down to frame! Thank you so much for everything. Words can’t describe how happy we are with the photos. You were an incredible photographer and also really good company on the day too. We’re so happy we chose you to capture our special day. Thank you so, so much. Izzy and Ravi x

Our photos are SO perfect
Morning Hayley, I'll start by saying, 'thank you'! Our photos are SO perfect!! From the presentation box and the string wrapped selection of photos, to the actual images and the slide show you put together. We set up a home cinema screening for ourselves; ate popcorn, drank champagne and watched the slide show. We laughed...I cried (happy tears) and we relived the day again, with all the added extras we missed during the whirlwind day. We couldn't have asked for a more dedicated photographer, so thank you for capturing our special day in a way which reflects who we are as a couple 💕

They are artistic, colourful, magical, happy and n
Hayley was amazing from the initial communication, we met up with her and discussed the plans, visited both venues and she really captured our day so well. We could not be happier with the results of our photographs. They are artistic, colourful, magical, happy and natural.

What is your most memorable wedding?

My favourite wedding ever was at the National Wildflower centre. The couple had a boho DIY wedding with lots of personal touches, and they had their blessing in a beautiful field of wildflowers

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Artistic, relaxed, natural, reportage, boho

What about your business are you most proud of?

All of the lovely testimonials and reviews I have received from my happy couples, many of whom are now friends!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't stress about the small stuff, the main thing on the day is that all the people you love are there having a good old knees up

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I love to photograph weddings that are a bit boho and DIY, so I've seen lots of interesting personal touches. One of the most memorable was when the bride and groom gave brightly coloured sunglasses out to all of the guests, each one with a personalised message on

Describe your typical process with a couple.

My process with couples is really just to get to know each couple as well as possible before the wedding, so that on the day I am there as a friend and not a stranger with a camera.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

The one where the groom looks at the bride and there is SO much love in his eyes. You can't pose stuff like that!

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

The couple were rock climbers and asked to be photographed hanging off some rocks. As you do

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Just get out there and get wet. Dance in the rain. The photos will be epic

Describe how you got into photography.

I've been a bit obsessed with photography all my life, but after following a 'safe career' for most of my 20s, I finally took the leap to follow my dream of becoming a professional wedding photographer. And I'm so glad I did, I LOVE it!
