Oh man, where to even begin?! If you're looking for a wedding photographer, and Hailey and Joel are available for your date, book them now! From our first email exchange, Hailey and Joel were the dream photographers to capture our wedding in October 2019. We knew their style was right up our alley having explored their work online, but the care and love they bring to working with couples for their wedding is one of the greatest gifts.
Hailey and Joel are true professionals - from the start they know all of the right questions to get you to open up about yourselves, your wedding day, your style, what's important to you. My husband and I were nervous about being photographed all day (we get awkward when someone says "cheese!"), but when we asked her Hailey had the best answers as to how she approaches those sorts of situations. Timely follow ups and attention to detail made my project manager heart flutter; and since they're such pros, Hailey and Joel knew the important things to capture before we had even thought of them (and when your "wedding brain" sets in, you and your partner will be so grateful for all the things they remember to shoot!). They were exceptionally helpful in developing the "Run of show" for the day - providing clear insights and tips on how to schedule things. I never thought twice or worried about anything.
Their fun energy and kind spirit brought such a joy to our day; our family and friends all noticed too, specifically one of my bridesmaids paid them the ultimate compliment: "You could just tell that they really cared, that came through in everything they did." I couldn't agree more!
One inherent benefit of having a fantastic husband and wife duo is how they work together, and how valuable it is to have two photographers. When Hailey was taking the head-on portraits, Joel would be snapping away from another angle (resulting in some of my favorite shots!). When one was shooting a bunch of set up shots or finishing up somewhere, the other was capturing all of our cocktail hour photos or spaces across the venue - moments we missed, but are so grateful to see through their work. All of these photos are ones we'll treasure forever.
Hailey and Joel are exceptionally talented at what they do, but even better they're just great people. You'll be so lucky to have them for your big day."
