Haverlee Photography is a storyteller who just happens to use a camera to tell those stories. She's a single mama of three wild things, adventure seeker, and general seeker of beauty and joy. She always knew she was creative but had to find her niche. Photography was like finding the words to a language she already knew. She's fallen in love with wedding photography over the last few years. Self-declared hopeless romantic, she considers it such an honor to witness every part of the day and be allowed into sacred moments. She's there to tell the story as it unfolds, beautifully and imperfectly. As time goes on and the details get fuzzy, you'll look back on the photos and things will become even sweeter in your memories.
Haverlee is based out of Des Moines, Iowa but travels often and captures couples and families across the country. All wedding packages will include an engagement shoot and a second shooter, plus an online gallery of edited images to print, download, and share. Any travel fees will be minimal. Please contact Haverlee for additional details and information. She does additional shoots as well, from lifestyle family photo shoots, to sessions with new mothers, single parents, and high school seniors. Couples will feel seen, accepted, and understood with Haverlee.

Captured so many Memories!
I found Haverlee via the “WedIowa” Instagram account and after meeting her I knew I wanted to hire her for our wedding. She did our engagement shoot and was our wedding photographer in Des Moines over the summer and she was absolutely wonderful! She had such a calming presence and did everything she could to make sure our wedding day was everything we could have hoped. I have not stopped looking through our wedding album since she sent it off and still don’t know how she got some of the shots. I barely registered where she was during the ceremony or reception but she caught so many special moments. It was so fun going through the photos and remembering what we were laughing at or what we were feeling at the time. The day flies by so fast and all now I’ll be able to relive it whenever I want. I also really liked how she distributed the photos via her website. It made it so easy to share with family. I’d definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding or family photographer.Sent on 10/17/2019

We LOVE our wedding photos!
Haverlee was our wedding photographer and I can't reiterate this enough - she truly has a gift.Sent on 06/10/2019
She brought such a lovely, positive energy the day of and was so much fun to work with. She knew when to sit back and let moments unfold and knew when to jump in and calmly and confidently direct people to get the shot. We hired a second shooter for the first half of the day and the two of them are a real team that have great communication skills with us, our group and each other.
Our photos blew us away. It was so lovely to relive our day and see the details and moments we missed. Some people who weren't at the wedding saw the photos and said they felt like they were there - that's pretty powerful and a testament to Haverlee's talent.
If you want to love your wedding photos and have your family and friends enjoy working with your photographer as much as you do, we can't recommend Haverlee enough!

Wonderful stress free experience from initial meeting to the day of!
Haverlee is an incredibly talented photographer! I cannot emphasize that enough. She was amazing to work with from the start. In the wedding industry where everything seems to be stressful, she was so fun and easy to work with! Excellent communication throughout the process and she really listened and got to know us. She has an open light vibe about her that will make you feel at ease. Our photos were exactly what we had hoped for and more. I can't think of anyone else that could have captured the day more beautifully.Sent on 05/06/2019
