Hey there! I’m Haleigh, the owner & principal photographer of Haleigh Nicole Photography. I'm a twenty-something, small town girl from Northern New Jersey, now residing in Orlando, Florida. Most days you can find me listening to a variety of podcasts, playing with my sweet cocker spaniel, or planning my next grand adventure. I'm slightly sarcastic and overly passionate about my work. I work side-by-side with my wonderful fiancé, Jack, and couldn't be more grateful.
Jack and I met during my junior year of college back in April of 2015! I was working on a dance show at the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center as the master electrician and lighting designer (we are huge theatre nerds and went to school for it). Jack walked in and crowded my space. I was stressed and said some not so nice things to him since I had no idea who he was. He took it and gave it right back to me! I think this is when I knew he was the one. I later found out that he transferred to our school and was the new sound designer. I pestered him for a week or two and even got him to help me move out of my apartment. We finally went on a real date and have been together ever since!
Jack joined Haleigh Nicole Photography officially at the beginning of 2018 and we have LOVED this season of life as partners! He is my second photographer on all weddings (except for when the occasional sound design pulls him away. But, that always brings us on a new adventure!).
Jack proposed on Christmas Day 2019 and we are now planning alongside of you for our own dream wedding day!
My dad was diagnosed with end-stage kidney failure on December 31, 2018 and end-stage incurable cancer on January 8, 2019. That’s when everything changed for me from a portrait standpoint. I have had a LOT of loss in my life, and the only way I've ever been able to remember the moments is through photos. Since my dad's diagnosis, I feared that I didn't have enough photos with him, especially in my adult years. That day, I made a vow to myself.
At every event since his diagnosis, I make it a point to capture my dad in the moment, as well as us enjoying the time together. I don't want to forget these last memories with him when he is gone. From Disney trips and road trips, the entire family being together and Christmas morning, and to my upcoming wedding day, these photographs have taken priority. We want the same for you.
As portrait photographers, we focus on capturing the intimacy, joy, and true story of your new season of life. We want you to remember every part of your new story in the most genuine way possible. We don't want you looking back down the road and regret not capturing your story and remembering how it felt.
I'm obsessed with Fall scents and amazing smelling items. Our house always has a candle or wax melt going and it almost always is a fall scent because it reminds me of home!
I love 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!
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.
I LOVE Parks and Recreation. We both do. We have matching Mouse Rat shirts and re-watch the series multiple times a year. Jack is the Andy to my April.
Podcasts are my favorite form of entertainment. When we are out exploring, we love listening to Armchair Expert, My Favorite Murder, and The Bellas Podcast.
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!
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.
We are obsessed with a good pun and corny dad jokes. It's really important to us to keep each other laughing and what better way to do so than jokes??
We are big sports fans and have a terrible rivalry in our home. I am a Yankees/Giants fan and Jack is a Red Sox/Patriots fan. This marriage is going to last, right??
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!
"Haleigh & Jack are some of the sweetest souls I’ve ever worked with! They are extremely talented, pay great attention to detail, are professional, and they care so much about their clients. My husband & I both feel that those things are hard to find in businesses these days so we treasure them whenever we can find them. I would recommend Haleigh & Jack to literally anyone and everyone who wants stunning photos and a wonderful and positive experience to go with them."
"Haleigh photographed our baby shower & she was absolutely fantastic! She captured every detail & more! She was thorough, arrived early, very professional, and had a quick turnaround time for editing our photos (not to mention, she has the sweetest personality!) We loved her photography so much, we hired her again for a “Fresh 48” session at the hospital when our daughter was born. She was so patient with us (and our new baby!), and she made us feel comfortable/natural the entire time! Since then, she has photographed a lifestyle home session, our holiday photos, as well as our baptism. We have the most amazing photos from the happiest days of our lives! Haleigh is a wonderful & talented photographer!"

"My boyfriend and I had the best experience getting our photos taken with Haleigh and Jack! They were prepared and had a plan B for every situation throughout the day. It rained and they had new location. I forgot the balloons I wanted to bring and they had balloons AND A HELIUM TANK in their car! We had also never had our photos taken before, and both Haleigh and Jack made us feel comfortable right away by teaching us poses and make us laugh the whole time. I would definitely have them take photos for any special occasion!"
"Before working with Haleigh, I’d never had professional pictures taken. Needless to say, I was slightly apprehensive and I didn’t know what to expect. Haleigh made me feel at ease, and made it a very fun experience! She has photographed our twin boys and our entire family. She is part baby whisperer and part photographer. I can’t imagine working with anyone else! You should know that Haleigh's clients are diverse, unique and looking for a lighthearted experience... which she 100% delivers on!"

"Haleigh is so amazing to work with!! She’s talented and creative. She makes you feel comfortable and at ease. Her picture quality and professionalism is top notch! She has now shot pictures for my pregnancy, baby shower, our extended family, my son's first birthday, my daughter's newborns, and our holiday photos! Her turn around to get the edited pictures is quick and efficient. You won’t be disappointed if you book with Haleigh Nicole Photography!"
