I'M BASED IN HAWAII, CALIFORNIA, & FLORIDA. WOAH, THREE STATES REALLY JAYLEIGH?
I was born in Florida, and have SO much family & friends there. So likewise, I'm constantly traveling to Florida for weddings, engagement sessions, and to visit my home town.
I now technically live in Hawaii (though sometimes I travel so much it doesn't feel like it) and I'm head over heels in love with these islands. The aloha spirit is SO real, and I am inspired beyond words with every wedding I get to be a part of here.
And California too? YES! My big brother lives in California, LA to be exact, and it's a second home to me. It's in the plan for the future to make the move to California, so shooting all the Cali weddings I can is a dream. Nothing is like the energy stepping off the plane in California, and I can't wait to live there one day.
INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL + ANY OTHER STATES ARE TOTALLY WELCOME.
I love traveling, I mean who doesn't? I've traveled so many different places internationally and in the US for magical days. A few of my favorites from the past year were definitely New Orleans and Mexico. Anyways, if you two are planning a wedding and love my work, I'm your girl no matter where it is! My passport is just sitting on the shelf waiting to be stamped. ;)
Hey hey, I'm Jayleigh!
I’m in love with many things. The ocean, traveling, exploring, and my family. I just got engaged this past January to Connor, the love of my life, and it was the best day ever. I'm also a mama to the coolest little dude in the world, Luca. My little family is my world and I'm so grateful for that.
I fell in love with this life and how fulfilled it makes my heart to do this. It is not something I could ever express with words, but to give you photographs that you will have forever on one of the happiest days of your lives, is the biggest honor in the entire world. My heart is always so big to be given that honor, every single time, that my couples choose me.
When I’m not behind the camera, editing, or emailing (which is barely ever), because photography is LIFE (in the best way possible). I also love: hanging with the fam, binge watching This Is Us + Shark Tank, working out, bein' a foodie, music, boating, beachin' it, being spontaneous, and anything outdoors.
With that being said, I do believe every couple has their perfect fit for a photographer. No bride or groom should ever feel like their photographer is just another distant wedding vendor. At least that is not and never will be how I work.
We become friends, always. I want to get to know you from the first time you email me. I wanna learn about you, your lover, your love story, how you guys met, all the mushy gushy stuff. I live for that. Tell me who you guys are. Nothing is more amazing than showing up the morning of your big day as if we have been friends forever, because trust me, it’ll feel that way.
I am in love with love. I want to capture every single insanely passionate, giggly, happy, quiet, silly, intimate, spontaneous moment between you two.
So yep, that's a quick little blurb about me. I cannot wait to hear more about you!
Let's start this adventure.
