Gorgeous does not begin to cover it!

“We were quite literally boarding a plane to Iceland when your email came through! We just now got the chance to look through everything and omg gorgeous does not begin to cover it! You did such an amazing job, we love every single photo, especially the ones we were lucky enough to get in the snow! Once we are back from our honeymoon we will be in touch about ordering prints. We want to sincerely thank you for all the work you did for us and for helping to make this day a little more special.” – Jay & Alex

Highly recommend!

“Hayley took our wedding photos in 2018 in the Carmel/Big Sur area in California. My husband and I did a destination elopement there. I found her by Google and absolutely loved her work. Since we had an intimate ceremony, we really wanted our photos to be within a natural setting. Throughout our correspondence, Hayley was very professional and quick to respond. When it came time to pick an exact site to marry, Hayley went above and beyond. Since we were on the other side of the country, she scoped out a few potential sites with photos. This was super helpful. Unfortunately, we had to pick another site at the last minute due to road construction, but it didn’t matter- everything worked beautifully. Hayley was very easy to work with day of, and our photos speak for this. Prior to getting married, I always heard how important it was to have a great photographer because your photos are truly all you’ll have of that day, aside from memories. 5 years later, I can’t say this to be more true! I highly recommend Hayley’s work.” – Ashley

The experience was spectacular.

“Hayley took our surprise engagement photos at Lakewood Vineyards (NY Finger Lakes) and the experience was spectacular. Hayley went with the flow as our vineyard tour was set off course and she made both my fiancé and myself comfortable with our first professional photos. Per my fiancé, “Hayley was very friendly, extremely flexible and was great at coordinating the event. The photos were delivered quickly and were great!” We highly recommend Hayley to capture your special moments :)” – Ashley


“I loved having Hayley as my wedding photographer. From the start she was extremely responsive & wanted to know all the details of our day. She’s organized, reliable and so talented! She blended right in with our guests and got photos of every moment. The wait for our full gallery was worth it, because the results are beautiful. Thank you Hayley!” – Jackie

Absolutely recommend.

“My fiancé and I were visiting the finger lake area and wanted to take our engagement photos while there. I found Hayley via Instagram and am so glad I did. Hayley was on time, professional, helpful and friendly. She was so patient with us and our dogs and she turned around our photos so quick! I would absolutely recommend Hayley!” – Elizabeth

Drawn to her natural and candid photos.

“I am so happy that we chose Hayley to photograph our wedding! She did an incredible job and was very easy to work with. While searching for a photographer, I was drawn to her beautiful, natural and candid photos. I then contacted her, and was impressed with her professionalism and friendliness.Throughout the wedding planning process she was very helpful and prompt to respond to emails. Her prices are also quite reasonable. On the day of the wedding, she seemed to blend in seamlessly, as she moved around the venue taking photos. She had a sense of calmness to her, but also took charge and directed us to pose as needed. We got the photos back within a month of the wedding, and are very happy with them. They are absolutely beautiful and perfectly captured the spirit of the day. I would highly recommend Hayley to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer!” – Kathryn

The pictures feels so authentic.

“Hayley did an incredible job with our engagement shoot. We had so much fun during the shoot itself, and now years later, still love the photos and are so happy with how they turned out. Hayley put us at ease to be ourselves and also captured the nature around us perfectly. The pictures feel so authentic to us. Would highly recommend Hayley.” – Stephanie

Cannot say enough good things.

“We had Hayley as our wedding photographer on September 1st and I cannot say enough good things about her! She was so helpful and responsive in the lead up, and even met me for coffee a few months before to discuss the best locations for our photos and timing for everything. On the day she was so helpful, professional and fun, very easy to work with and made us feel really comfortable. The end result photos are so beautiful and we’re so so happy that she was able to capture such special memories for us! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer with a very natural style and good eye for beautiful shots.” – Amanda


“Hayley Anne was amazing on our wedding day! Before the day, she was always very fast with her responses, and I could not have asked for more beautiful photos of our special day! Everything was beautiful, she got exactly what I hoped for and more, I will forever be grateful for her services on that day!” – Megan


“Hayley joined us in Yosemite National Park for our destination wedding. She made the entire process easy. Leading up to the event, Yosemite was closed due to fire and she was quick to respond with her thoughts and other locations if needed. Fortunately, Yosemite opened back up and we were able to meet at sunrise (6am!) for photos. My husband hates posed photos and taking photos in general; with Hayley we were able to relax, talk, and enjoy ourselves through the whole process without feeling forced. My husband was thrilled with how laid back it was. Additionally, we had a lot of family photos to take & many options, Hayley went with the flow and took additional shots which I had forgotten to put on the list. The “sneak peak” was posted a lot faster than I had anticipated, which was really exciting! The reason we had chosen Hayley was her ability to take in the view but also not forgetting the main point of the photo & she definitely delivered. We have so many options to choose from and every single one is absolutely stunning. We highly recommend Hayley!” – Sandra

Finger Lakes photographer reviews

Hayley. Is. Magic.

“From the moment Hayley responded to my first email, I knew she was the right choice. She’s warm, kind, passionate about her art and so incredibly talented. Hayley met my Fiancé and me at Big Sur (and even showed up a little earlier so we could get some bonus shots at our favorite spot along the river) and she started snapping right away. She’s so organized and seamlessly flowed from one lens to the next, one location to the next, and was very helpful guiding us where to stand. We are not particularly photogenic people (I am part Sasquatch and tend to be a little blurry and awkweird in photos) but Hayley put us both at ease. We just walked through some scenic areas and chatted and she snapped away the whole time. She took over 800 photos, and by the time we were done, we were frozen (our fault for choosing a beach in November) but delighted. Hayley told us our pics would be ready in about a month, but she delivered about a week early! Our photos are “ours,” (no pesky watermark b.s.) and she sent about 75 AMAZING photos. Our hearts just squeed when we saw them. Hayley helped us look great, and not forced, stagey cheesy smiles but natural giggles and joy. She totally captured our love and our energy and matched it beautifully against the settings we chose.
Hayley. Is. Magic.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, THESE pictures are worth thousands. Book her now! Our photos are everything we were hoping for and we couldn’t be happier.” – Jaime

Beautiful. Artful.

“It is hard to put into words what Hayley’s engagement and wedding photos mean to me. Aside from the technical excellence of the photos – beautiful lighting, artful contrast, and vivid colors – the composition and captured moments are what blew me away. Each photograph tells its own story in the way she captured expressions, dance moves and even things as subtle as the movement of my wedding dress. Hayley captured the moments between the moments and I could not be happier! In terms of the business side of things- Hayley was perfect. She was professional- arriving early and having already scoped out the venue to know where to take the best photos. Hayley also has a way of blending in with the background so you don’t even realize you are being photographed. We seriously could not have asked for more in a photographer. Thank you Hayley!” – Morgan

The results were out of this world.

“Hayley Anne is an AMAZING photographer! I had the pleasure of working with her at a wedding in upstate New York and the results were out of this world. Hayley seemed very laid back and personable during the shoot, but looking at the results, you can see just how diligent and focused she was in capturing all the details in every moment, all while always keeping the technicalities of composition in mind. For the dancing portion, there’s so much action captured, it rivals some of the best I’ve seen. There’s even photos of a guest being hoisted (or perhaps launched!) into the air by a friend, which to me serves as a reminder that you can only capture these details if you have a photog who is keenly aware and lightning quick. If you are looking for a photographer who can capture the unique personalities of your family members, all the fine details, and all the dance floor action without breaking a sweat, I would absolutely recommend Hayley!” – Zach

She made us feel so special.

“Hayley was so sweet and helpful in working with my fiancé and I for a proposal photo shoot! She was communicative and responsive, genuinely excited to be with us, and made us feel so special on a very special day! I can’t say enough great things about Hayley and her professionalism. (And our photos are absolutely gorgeous!)” -Aubrey

She truly has a gift for taking breathtaking photos.

“I had the pleasure of working with Hayley Anne for my wedding and she truly has a gift for taking breathtaking photos. What I loved most about our photos was the way Hayley incorporated the beautiful scenery around us. The sunny forecast for our wedding day quickly turned into a major storm, but Hayley’s ability to create stunning images in any situation is a testament to her talent and creativity. I would highly recommend Hayley Anne Photography to any couple looking for a wedding photographer who wants to capture their love story in a beautiful and authentic way. Thank you, Hayley, for giving us memories we will cherish for a lifetime!” – Letysia


“For our engagement and wedding pictures, Hayley Anne did a wonderful job. She picked great locations and helped us with posing. She was responsive and available throughout the whole planning process. She was very friendly and approachable. She also blended into the background during our wedding day to capture candid pictures we will always cherish.” – Haleigh


“Would recommend for any photography needs. We went up to Ithaca for some engagement photos and Hayley delivered. Very reasonable on price. She was super helpful deciding where to go and the end result was awesome! She got the album together quickly and we’ve loved sharing them with family and loved ones.” – Scott

Made us feel so comfortable.

“Hayley took stunning photos of my surprise proposal! She was super easy to coordinate with and made us feel so comfortable throughout the whole shoot. We just got the “sneak peak” and the pictures are incredible. Highly recommend!!.” – Corey

She made it so easy.

“Hayley was amazing! She made it so easy to take lots of pictures even when taking pictures isn’t our usual thing! We love how they turned out :)” – Micaela

Above and beyond.

“We hired Hayley to shoot our wedding this August and we cannot sing her praises loudly enough! She has an amazing knack for capturing emotion, lighting and setting. When my husband and I first viewed our photos, we laughed, cried, and essentially relived the most special day of our lives. Hayley is friendly, professional, and super efficient. She sends a “sneak peak” teaser to Facebook before you get your complete album on-line, which was really exciting. The complete album was ready before we expected and the photos are incredibly beautiful. And, as icing on the cake, her prices are super reasonable. Hayley went above and beyond our expectations. I would absolutely recommend her without reservation to capture any special occasion. Thank you, Hayley!!” – Elizabeth

Blew me away.

“I found Hayley via yelp! I was looking for a wedding photographer that was local and I found her! Her website with her portfolio blew me away even before I met her. The first time meeting Hayley she went through everything and basically made us feel super comfortable. We ended up not looking anywhere else and was excited when she said our wedding date was available. She was willing to travel. Hayley is fantastic. I can’t begin to describe how much I love my photos! I’m also not a person that enjoys getting their photo taken, but Hayley made me feel so comfortable and she was focused! She caught all the special moments and I couldn’t be happier. Please don’t hesitate on hiring Hayley, she is the best!!” – Julie

You will not find a better photographer.

“Hayley is an amazing photographer and person. We absolutely loved working with her. She made us feel comfortable right from the start and we had the best time spending 4 hours with her! She was very responsive leading up to the elopement and beyond accommodating as we changed location a couple hours before! You will honestly not find a better photographer. When we start a family, we will be using her for maternity photos next!! We love you Hayley!” – Caite

Calming presence.

“We just got our wedding photos, and we can only say if you are looking for a wedding photographer, we highly recommend Hayley. From the very beginning, she was extremely responsive and professional. We appreciated her calming presence at the wedding; she was able to capture wonderful shots gracefully and strategically. Hayley has such an artistic eye, she came early the day of the wedding to locate good spots for pictures; the church we picked wasn’t super impressive in terms having beautiful backgrounds, but that didn’t stop Hayley from taking the most incredible pictures! She also worked with us to customize the photography package. She genuinely cares about each and every couple that she works with. We had a wonderful experience with Hayley as our wedding photographer!! Thanks Hayley!!” – Allison

True artist.

“We had Hayley photograph my daughter’s wedding, I can’t say enough about her. She captured such special moments with her talent. She came to the house while my daughter got ready and she made everyone feel so comfortable. She captured the lighting perfectly and is a true artist had a great mix of total candid shots and formal family shots. Most of the time I never knew she was shooting but as I looked at her photographs the entire beautiful day came back to me. Hayley is a joy to work with and I highly recommend her for your special event. She is a true professional and an artist. Take a look at her website and you will see her talent . She was a joy and we have beautiful photos to treasure for years !” – Kary


Are you kidding me?!?! These are incredible!! Truly a work of art, especially considering how hot it was and Charlie’s insanity. We love them – THANK YOU!! We’re so glad that you took the time to shoot our engagement photos. Thank you so much!!” – Zan + Alex

Marvelous job!

“Hayley did a marvelous job! She was great with communication throughout the whole process and her client portal makes payments and form submission so easy. The quality of Hayley’s character and her photos is incredible, and her services were affordable for our budget. She made time to travel to meet us at our venue to scope out good places for photos week prior to the event. She was punctual and flexible on wedding day. Her patient and calm demeanor made us feel even more relaxed before the ceremony. We love our photos so much!! They came much faster than expected. Thank you so much Hayley!” – Emily

Couldn’t be happier.

“Hayley took my engagement photos and I couldn’t be happier. We had been searching through endless photographers and Hayley was so helpful and quick to respond. During our shoot she was able to makes us feel comfortable and really took her time getting a variety of shots that incorporated the beautiful landscape we were in.
I was blown away when we got our photos back. Hayley is a fantastic photographer who truly captures life, love and movement in her photos!” – Chanel

Wonderful experience.

“We had a wonderful experience with Hayley Anne from first meeting to beautiful prints of our stunning photos. She captured our wedding absolutely perfectly. She captured wonderful candid moments and perfect posed photos. We were married nearly 8 years ago and I still cherish all of the photos she took. We worked together to create a beautiful photo album to showcase the photos and I absolutely love looking at it. The quality of the photo album is wonderful.” – Elizabeth


“I recently booked Hayley for a proposal session to capture the moment when I proposed to my partner. She was professional and knowledgeable throughout the process, ensuring we had everything planned out. The photos she took were amazing and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.” – Dakota

Fantastic work!

“Hayley does such fantastic work! She captured everything in a way I didn’t even think was possible!! Her photography really captures natural beauty in the most organic way. We could not have picked a better photographer! She is so professional and without her our day would not have went nearly as smooth as it did. I will always be thankful for Hayley and will treasure these photos forever!!” – Liana


“Hayley Anne is an *amazing* photographer, as well as warm, friendly, and beyond wonderful to work with. My wife and i are both camera-shy, but Hayley made us feel so comfortable and good about ourselves during our engagement session, and captured the spirit of our relationship in a beautiful natural setting. And then on our wedding day, Hayley came up with a nice variety of shots (exactly what we wanted), and surprised us with her talent for catching unique, subtle moments throughout the day. We were blown away by both our engagement photos and wedding photos, and will enjoy them for the rest of our lives.” – Neilam

Such a pleasure.

“Hayley Anne Photography was recommended to my husband and I by friends of ours who had hired her/them for their wedding. Hayley Anne was such a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Her communication with us regarding our wedding photography was always efficient, prompt and friendly. Hayley Anne did everything she could to ensure that we would get the shots we desired and that those shots would be beautiful. Also, the second shooter was always taking pictures to ensure full coverage of our wedding. On top of all this, Hayley Anne was the perfect option for us and our wedding. But most importantly, Hayley Anne is so warm and friendly. The positive energy she exudes put me at ease immediately and truly made the day that much more special for both my husband and I and our guests. It is without hesitation that we recommend Hayley Anne Photography to anyone planning an engagement session, elopement or wedding.” – Katherine


“I highly recommend Hayley. She did an excellent job at my wedding. She captured beautiful moments of that special day of our life. I can’t feel more satisfied with the professionalism and integrity of her service.” – Tatiana

I am sobbing.

“HAYLEY I AM SOBBING!!! These are more beautiful than I ever could have imagined!!! I cannot thank you enough!!! I can’t believe how well you captured that day. We will treasure these photos for the rest of our lives. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!” – Kat

We feel so fortunate.

“Hayley was amazing! We feel so fortunate to have worked with her for our engagement and wedding photos! Our engagement photos were at Ghirardelli Square, Marina Park, and Palace of Fine Arts and the wedding was at Fort Mason. Her approach to guiding us for the different pictures was easy to follow and the photos turned out beautifully! She worked seamlessly with our other vendors and turn around time for wedding photos was quick! Thank you Hayley for helping us capture these moments!” – Kelly

Finger Lakes photographer reviews


“Hayley is amazing!! My fiancée booked Hayley to surprise me with an engagement photo shoot at Robert H. Treman State Park. He knew based on her reviews and their initial communications, that she would be incredible. And she was nothing short of incredible. I’m personally uncomfortable with staged photos, but she made me feel at ease. She’s very personable and the process was extremely easy and laid back. And the photos…. They speak for themselves. We are so thrilled with how they came out. The sneak peek was out very quickly thereafter and we even received our pictures earlier than we anticipated. They are PERFECT. We absolutely love them and could not recommend Hayley more!!!” – Madeleine

She is magic.

“If you are getting married in the bay area you need Hayley. If you want beautiful photos that are actual art to cherish forever she is the photographer for you. We felt so comfortable with her as did everyone at our small (30 people) ceremony and reception. She is magic.” – Zach


“Just got our elopement photos back from Hayley Anne and HOLY COW! The photos are absolutely gorgeous. We could not be happier! Not only is Hayley an incredible photographer and artist, but a beautiful human. She helped my husband and I feel so calm and confident on our wedding day, as well as throughout the entire planning process. We are forever grateful for you, Hayley! Thank you!” – Laura

Exceeded expectations.

“We hired Hayley to photograph our wedding per recommendation from our friends, and we are SO happy that we took their advice! She was a delight throughout the planning process and the wedding, very responsive, patient, and organized. We had a few meetings with her, one in person and two via Skype, plus several email exchanges.  Hayley’s style was exactly what we wanted – photojournalistic, which meant that she took a lot of candid shots, capturing the events and interactions as they unfolded. I had complete confidence that the photos would be wonderful after perusing her blog and seeing how she was capturing the wedding. The photos we received exceeded expectations. I really could not have asked for more.  If you are looking for a talented, organized and kind photographer for your wedding, look no further than Hayley Anne Photography. I admittedly know little about the business, but predict that she will be in very high demand a couple more years, so I feel extremely lucky to have had her document our special day. Thanks Hayley, we will recommend you to every friend who is getting ready to tie the knot.” – Svetlana

In love.

“I just received my photos from my little wedding and I am so in love. I’ve been anxiously waiting was so happy when she emailed me. We got married on a foggy day on the coast and I was a little bummed by the fog but the photos are beautiful. She answered all my questions during the planning process. She helped me pick out an awesome location for the ceremony and the spots to take photos. I am so pleased with the outcome. The landscape as well as my husband and I came out great. Hayley is wonderful and such a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much Hayley!!” – Angel
