Hi lovely! I'm Hailey— a spirited twenty-something who took "hopeless romantic" to a whole new level and turned her life into a constant, Hollywood-has-nothing-on-THIS reel of witnessing the purest, truest of love stories. There isn't a second of time I don't adore this work I get to do... this work of bringing love and light back into focus in the world through art; this work of making memories tangible, painted with sunlight, for generations to have and to hold.

I  live  for...

.02 What i do

INFP. Free Spirit. Film Obsessed. Wanderer & Light-chaser. Believer in grace. Shower singer.

Lazy afternoons spent in art museums. $5.00 movies days. The thunder and mist of waterfalls, and people-watching on the Memorial Union Terrace. The skyline of Chitown. Proposals. Reflections on clear water, and fog horns as the sun comes up. Stopping to read the historic marker signs. The rush that comes from breathing the air of new places. The sea, the islands, the windswept hair, the road-trips, the jet engines. The heartbeat of a new city. Monet and Renoir. Français.

Also, Tacos. The very American kind.

My   playlist  vibes  of  choice :


7  little  things I  love -

number one

airplane tickets to literally anywhere

I'm always checking apps like Skyscanner and Hopper— even more than I check Instagram. Do with that info what you will.

number two

rainy days

Yes, even rainy wedding days! There's nothing that brings people together like running around in the world's biggest sprinkler.

number three

90's kid life

Long live The Lion King and Celine Dion.

number four

all of the cats on the planet

Okay, all of the puppers, too— I grew up with Rotties! I adore my three cats now, but my cats act like dogs. Soooooo.

number five

big cities

 I'm a country-raised girl who much prefers life in the city, where there's always a story to tell or a museum to visit.

number six

Watercolors and a fresh sketchbook. 

Urban sketching from life is one of my favorite pastimes. (Another reason I love cities.)

number seven

audrey hepburn

I really don't think I can choose a favorite movie of hers, but
My Fair Lady and Charade are at the very top of the list.

I am a fine art photographer who chases the sun and adores the timeless aesthetic of film. I spent my time holding brushes and studying the work of impressionists and watercolorists long before I ever picked up a camera, and I like my work to continue to be inspired by paintings; soft, dreamy, filled with light, and romantic in feel and color.

frequently capturing love stories in Milwaukee, chicago,
& european destinations

.03 where I go

I'm a Madison, Wisconsin girl who was transplanted here from Northeast Ohio at 9 years old. Of all the cities I've explored, ours is my favorite to come home to! I base my services here in Mad City, but I also frequently capture love stories for the sweetest couples in the Milwaukee and Chicago areas.

As you can probably tell by now, traveling is my favorite way to live life, and I will wholeheartedly follow your love story wherever it takes you overseas. I currently am available for 2019 weddings and anniversaries in France, Italy, and the U.K.
