"Hiring Haley was the best decision we made for our day..."

Emily & Brendan

Your everyday love at its most romantic. Haley James gently leads you through movement suggestions, not poses, providing some direction, but ultimately showing who you are together at your most relaxed, natural and in love.


a day together


"We fell a little more in love that day, honestly."

Lori & Matt

An intimate destination wedding in spectacular settings all over the world. I am guilty of unquenchable wanderlust –what makes it most exhilarating is the melding of a stunning location, a captivating love story, and the joyful and intimate moments captured near and far.


to the end of the world


"Her photography and ability to craft and capture the perfect moments are incomparable."

Callie & Aaron

"Haley's vision brought our dream and day to life."

Courtney & Brandon

I take pride in setting my ego aside. At the end of the day, your wedding is not about getting the perfect sunset imagery for my portfolio, but rather capturing the best moments of your day that culminate in a perfectly and intentionally crafted wedding album that illustrates the moments, stories, and feelings that will endure forever.


Through detailed pre-engagement and wedding consultations and mood boards, I take the time to thoroughly study your vision is and utilize our industry expertise and connections to make it come to life for your day.

I bring your vision to life.

I set aside time the week and day before your wedding to scout the best locations to make your dreams reality. No two weddings are the same and here at Haley James I make sure your location is true to your unique personality and vision.

I know all the best spots.



If you're looking for dreamy, romantic fine art imagery, but a well-organized and executed process, you're in luck. Let's schedule a consultation and see if this is the right fit.

Let HJ Tell Your Love Story.
