“We hired Halie for our elopement in the Wasatch Mountains. She went above and beyond as a photographer. She was with us every step of the way to ensure a seamless and easy elopement. I felt like we had our very own wedding planner and photographer all in one! She is such a genuine and kind person and you can tell that she is truly passionate about what she does. Our photos came out better than we could have ever imagined. The photos were a great mix of intimate, creative, beautiful, and uniquely goofy, as catered to our personalities. She has a very calming personality and we both felt very comfortable in front of the camera with her. The whole morning felt very natural and it was so much fun! I would 100% recommend Halie as a photographer for not only her beautiful photos but also the wonderful experience she provides!”

Halie was so helpful in the planning and setting up a location. We knew we wanted to be in Bryce Canyon but have never been so we definitely needed the guidance to choose a spot. She was very knowledgeable about the park and choosing the perfect time to be in our location so we could include the sunrise. Working with her was great, she was friendly and very comfortable to be around. She was great at helping us with poses and kept everything very natural. Getting our pictures back was so exciting, we absolutely love them and feel like they captured us perfectly. Could not have asked for them to turn out better. The best part of this experience was getting to visit a new place and have an incredible view for such a special time. I would recommend her 100%!
