I've been a photographer for over 10 years and I love that I get to meet new people weekly from all walks of life! I started my journey in theatre, have a degree in theatrical lighting design, and even worked for the Mouse (Disney) for a short stint. I realized I wasn't a 9-5 kind of gal and worked my way to owning my own business with my now husband. I couldn't ask for a better career!
Some other quick facts!
• I am an Enneagram type 6 and ISFJ!
• I was born in New Jersey and moved to Orlando when I was 5!
• My husband and I met in college doing theatre and I did not have the kindest first words for him. He was hooked immediately!
• Jack and I got married on July 29, 2020 in the middle of the pandemic. We had an intimate wedding in the Maroon Bells in Aspen, Colorado!
• You will catch me listening to anything and everything on Spotify. Jack never knows what he will get in the car each week!
• Our wedding photo was featured on a billboard as a surprise from one of my corporate clients!
...while homeschooling through high school. It was a great form of expression for someone who never got to really be around anyone! After college and a few jobs that just weren't the right fit, I decided to take this passion and go full-time with my business. Over the past 5 years, through 300+ hours of education and hands on learning, I created the best decision I could have made for myself and my family.
It has given me the opportunity to be a part of 50+ couple's intimate love stories, 100's of families most special life moments, spend my days at home with my pup, take care of my dad with end-stage cancer, travel the country with the love of my life, and brought incredible new friends into my life (who were originally clients)!!
The gorgeous details of the wedding day are amazing, but the most important part to me is capturing intimate love story of my clients exactly as they happen (while cracking some terrible dad jokes in the process). My end goal is to make the wedding day as stress-free and fun as possible. If that means a confetti champagne cannon in the getting ready room or making an absolute fool out of myself, then that's what I will do!
My amazing husband who supports all of my crazy dreams. He's my adventure partner, the best dad, and assists or second shoots almost all portrait sessions and wedding days with me!
My crazy 9 year old who acts like he's 2! He is our emotional support fluff, the best cuddle partner, and the lover of all toys! He has a bed in my office and spends most of the work day snoring.
obsessed with fall scents.
I'm obsessed with Fall scents and amazing smelling items. My office always has a pumpkin or apple scent going while I'm editing!
puppies, puppies + more puppies.
Cocker Spaniels are my soul mates. I grew up with 3 and we have a sweet fluff of our own, Rocky. They are just so fun!
roadtrips are my jam.
If I could drive around in an RV exploring the world, I would. Roadtrips are my jam and I take as many as I can each year with Jack.
I LOVE Parks and Recreation.
We both do. We have matching Mouse Rat shirts, PJs, and re-watch the series multiple times a year. Chris Pratt sent us a signed picture for our wedding. Jack is the Andy to my April.
all about the podcasts.
Podcasts are my favorite form of entertainment. Whenever I'm in the car, I love listening to Armchair Expert, My Favorite Murder, The Bellas Podcast, Off the Vine, and Fake Doctors Real Friends.
huge wwe fan.
Speaking of The Bellas, I am a HUGE WWE fan! During my college years, I was able to shadow the lighting director of WWE and fell in love. I later worked for Nikki Bella on a project as a graphic designer!
notebooks keep me in check.
I am obsessed with notebooks. I love all the fun designs and just writing down everything! I am very detail oriented and the notebooks keep me in check.
bring on the corny dad jokes.
I am obsessed with a good pun and corny dad jokes. Laughter is really important in all of my relationships, and what better way to do so than with jokes??
down to explore new places.
We love to explore new places together (and I love making Jack take pictures in the new places). We are planning a destination wedding to start our new life together in an adventurous way!
No shame for Reality TV.
I have no shame. Reality TV is my jam and is always in the background when I'm editing (because I don't REALLY have to focus on it). The Bachelor Franchise, Dancing With the Stars, Total Bellas... I can go on forever.

"We had previously experienced Haleigh's work at my brother's wedding and we knew we had to have her for our wedding as well! Haleigh is an exceptionally gifted photographer and as we viewed the wedding album we got more and more excited about each wonderful moment that was perfectly captured. We loved how easy it was to work with Haleigh and all of the fun and creative ideas that she had to create some truly special pictures. Haleigh actually came up to the DC area for us - not once, but twice (engagement and wedding pics)! And yet despite the distance, it was really and truly easy to work with her."
"Haleigh and Jack are two of the most amazing, sincerest individuals that I have ever worked with! We adore them so much and they made my fiancé and I feel like pros while taking pictures. We had initially had our engagement pictures taken by someone else and they were really disappointing, so we turned to Haleigh and Jack and they made us feel so comfortable, had a BLAST (who knew taking pictures in the Florida heat could be fun?!), and our photos turned out so much more than amazing. We have found our forever photographer and we are so grateful to have had the experience to work with Haleigh and Jack (and of course Rocky, too!)"
""Haleigh and Jack are amazing! They had our wedding date available only three months out and their prices are ridiculously reasonable. They both take such amazing photos and Haleigh goes out of her way to make you feel special and pamper you a little bit. She even has an exclusive FB page for her brides where we all share tips and ask questions. Their photos are incredible and their post processing really gave us the feeling we were looking for in our photos. Plus, we got our photos back in less than two weeks! Lastly, my new husband isn’t the most social in the world and was nervous about having someone in his ready room but Jack made him totally comfortable and they got along great.""
