The Wedding Experience

It’s not just about the photos.

My Philosophy

It’s not every day you get married. In fact, this is probably a first for the two of you! I’ve been a part of my fair share of weddings, so I know the pressure that there can be to get everything right. As your photographer, I believe that it’s my job to be there for you throughout the planning process. To provide the insider knowledge you need along the way. To earn the trust that leaves you feeling at ease, knowing that your details are well cared for and documented. I believe that it’s my job to strike the perfect balance that keeps your wedding day fun and relaxed, all the while, capturing every important moment, details, and person.

My approach to wedding day photography balances an eye for the

details, with authenticity and non-intrusiveness — there to guide you into the best places and positions, but also there to capture your natural selves in the candidness of any moment. This may be the one time your closest family and friends will all be together in one place — which I why I do pre-wedding planning to ensure that there is time for that authenticity and that you, Mom, and everyone else, get all of the shots you’ve all been dreaming of. And when it’s all said and done, I help you to unfold that story and preserve it for the years to come.

I take on a limited number of weddings each year in order to provide this level of service to my couples. This business is incredibly personal and I’m honored to be the person you choose to join you for your day.

Peace of Mind

Let’s face it, you have enough on your hands. You need a photographer that is interested in being a true partner through the entire process, investing in your story and vision from the very beginning. I’m there to capture every intimate moment and detail of your wedding, yes . . . but also there to make it the easiest part of the entire planning process.

Calming Reassurance

You need more than a professional photographer. While I am just that, I’m also a professional nerve-calmer, family-organizer, and coordinator of many details. And my demeanor sets the tone of your day — because remember, I’m also your professional third wheel for the day 😉 I keep things light and easy, rolling with whatever changes come our way and guiding you through a seemingly effortless wedding day.

True to You

You’re an original, and your photos should be too. While I have many tried and true “poses” I’ll use to flatter you two, the true focus is on you as a couple. The way you move together, how you interact, and the ways you most show your love. It’d be easy for me to recreate an entire Pinterest board of inspiration, but then again, you’re just trying to live your own best wedding day — not someone else’s, right?

Your Start to Finish Partner

From the time you hire me, through the wedding (and beyond!), I’m your girl. From custom photo timelines to checking in on all the little details you never even thought would impact photography. This is probably your first time planning a wedding, but that doesn’t mean you have to navigate it alone. The expertise I bring keeps you from having to guess and gives you confidence in your day and the images we'll create.

The Process

From our first conversation, I’m invested in you. Your story, your vision, your must-have-wedding-dreams, and everything in between. Together, we’ll create a custom wedding collection that fits you and your day perfectly. With expertise in the technicalities of light and photography, along with the details of your day, I’ll create a custom photo timeline that ensures a relaxed, fun day and the best photos to remember it all by.

As your wedding day nears, we’ll review priorities and all the details to be documented — including your family formal shot list (making sure Mom’s happy with it too!). With our plan in place, you’ll have the confidence to know that every detail is cared for and documented, allowing you to live in the moment and truly experience your day.

what By Halie couples are saying


Halie is EVERYTHING and more that you could hope to find in a professional photographer, and contributor to your wedding dream! She is professional, prompt, thorough, honest, and captures these magical moments that you didn’t even realize were happening that will make you so grateful that you hired her. She is also so easy and fun to work with - hands down made our experience 100% less stressful! I am so grateful Halie was so easygoing and flexible! From start to finish, she is on top of everything. Her style is perfectly natural, and the way she captures lighting provides the perfect amount of that dreamy glow. Needless to say, Halie is the real deal!

- Megan B.

Halie was absolutely amazing! Both my husband and I have never been in front of a professional camera before and were a little nervous but Halie did a very good job at directing us and making us feel comfortable. She was so organized with preparation leading up to the wedding to make sure that we got all the shots that we wanted. She is thoughtful, relatable, kind, easy going and an amazing photographer which are all things you can want for your wedding.

- Brooke L.

Halie is amazing! She works extremely hard to make sure you are satisfied in every way possible. Halie is personable, professional, and so fun to work with! Our engagement and wedding photos are everything and more than we hoped for. We will always contact Halie for photos in our future!

- Jennifer T.

Halie was amazing to work with! She has a very good eye for getting the “right shot”... Halie is professional, on time, and best of all very patient. She has a calming way about her to make you comfortable which is key. Thank you Halie, you're so talented!

- Keegan E.

Halie is a dream to work with! We wanted to find someone who would work with our need to break tradition and not pose for many photos (due to my husband being incredibly camera shy) and she managed to capture so many lovely photos of us laughing, smiling and enjoying our perfect wedding day without one single awkward pose! I would highly recommend her as she is so easy going, delightful and has a true gift with her individual and expressive eye!
