Hello! I’d like to start by introducing myself -- I’m Haley, the gal behind Photos By Heart; although I received my BA from the University of Alabama in Studio Art, a career as a wedding photographer took me by total surprise. Frankly, I never expected it to fulfill the call to create that's beckoned since childhood ... but thank goodness the human experience includes the opportunity to embrace a change of heart, right?

I draw inspiration from the chemistry between two lovers, lighting, color, a sense of time and space, relationships, and raw candid emotion; I adore using each of these facets to not only compose pretty photographs, but to evoke feeling and construct a narrative. It's not lost on me how fortunate I am to share in and document so many incredible moments - my heart is full of gratitude for this life.

My husband, Dylan, has been my partner on this journey since the very start. Second-shooter ... film-loader... extra set of hands ... technical guru ... sounding board ... my champion. He's a treasured and integral part of this process. 

Together, we endeavor to document each and every wedding with an eye for authenticity and thoroughness to create beautiful light-filled images. Our desire is to consistently provide our couples with photographs that they can cherish for a lifetime -- heirlooms to be passed from your hands to future generations.

Outside of photography, I'm a professed coffee connoisseur, music enthusiast, and lover of the written word. My proudest accomplishment is without a doubt, being Mama to our darling son.


Although we are thrilled to be just getting to know Haley, she is no stranger to the Birmingham wedding industry. With over 5 years of experience & such an eye and passion for what she does, you are going to LOVE her!
