I absolutely love love. I love seeing others in love, and I love being in love. And I mean who doesn’t? I have such a passion for capturing the love of others, especially when it comes with the unique beauty and strength of being in a military relationship. As someone who has been surrounded by military men a few times in my life - my grandpa being an Air Force veteran, my cousin having served in the Marines, and presently dating my sweet Marine, Tyler - I have such an appreciation for our service members. It is also because of Tyler that I grew to have such an appreciation for those who walk alongside them in life and love them so well.
With the craziness that often accompanies the military lifestyle, sometimes it can be difficult to plan a photoshoot. I mean, have you ever dealt with the stress of planning for a military deployment homecoming and the date keeps changing alllll the time? As someone who cares about you + your love story and is familiar with the military environment, I can promise you I’ll have your back, laugh + smile + cry with you, and ultimately deliver the best of my work I can offer.
Not a military couple?
No worries! I still will provide you with the absolute best of my work and would absolutely love to photograph the special + intimate moments of your life.
Capturing photographs makes your memories last a lifetime, and I’m here to help make sure that happens.

Team of Hailigten Photography
Hey there! I'm Hailey, the face behind the lens. If you're on this page, you probably want to get to know me a bit better so here we go!
To me, life is worth living. I know that probably sounds silly at first, but when I say that I mean that I don't want to spend my life just going through the motions. I want to be present and experience all the adventures and curveballs life has to offer - and document it all on a camera!
I'm a born and raised Cali girl with a heart to one day live in the country. I thrive off being busy, and my schedule reflects that! I'm a full time college student, as well as have an almost-full-time job in addition to growing this amazing dream business of mine. In my free time, I love to spend time with my fiance, who is a Marine stationed in Twentynine Palms, CA. Our favorite activities involve stargazing and getting nerd slushees from Sonic (if you haven't tried one, I definitely recommend it!).
I'm super stoked you're here, and I hope I get the privilege of meeting you and capturing your special day! Let's make memories that last a lifetime.
