Haley and Ross are an absolutely AMAZING team, and I am so happy that we had them as our photographers on our wedding day. Haley was with me the whole day, while Ross was with my hubby. They're such a friendly and professional team to have onboard. We're super awkward as it is in front of the camera, but somehow they managed to work their magic and produce some beautiful photos! Haley is a gem! She is very a talented professional who knows exactly what she is doing and what shot she wants! She goes the extra mile (recusing my veil many times 🌪️🌫️), she has the patience of a Saint (those group photos 😏!), gives direction when needed (which was most of the time 😜) and on . a very chaotic wedding day (which was running a little behind schedule), she provides a calming and supportive presence every bride needs around them on their special day.
Together, Ross and Haley are a funny, friendly couple of professionals that helped keep us relaxed and laughing, while sneakily capturing those natural moments! Any couple getting married should definitely look at having them, it'll be an investment you definitely will not regret. Thanks Haley and Ross for everything! p.s. Haley was so efficient she sent through 15 sneak peaks the very next day!

Haley was our wedding photographer at Liddington Gardens, Kerikeri in March, 2020. Right from the get go I thought Haley would be the perfect photograher for our special day. This was even before we met her! She has so many great tips on her blog, instagram and facebook and her photos spoke for themselves. We were not disappointed! Haley is so professional, fun, easy-going, and makes the day an absolutely breeze. She directs people to where they need to be and captures the most incredible photographs that highlight the bright, gorgeous colours. Can't thank Haley enough! The hardest part is going to be picking which photos to frame!

Haley is so talented. I’ve never been glammed up professionally before, let alone had my photo taken. So stepping out of my comfort zone in front of a camera was huge for me. Haley put me at ease straight away and made me so comfortable, our whole session was spent with laughs and new fond memories.
I can not recommend her enough. If this is what it’s like to be shown how to feel beautiful and self empowered, I am definitely coming back for more. Thank you Haley ❤️

Haley and Ross are such an incredible team and I was honored to have them as our photographers on our wedding day. Haley is extremely talented and the most professional vendor you will ever met. I felt at ease the whole day as I had full trust in her, as did all my other vendors as they followed her lead. If you are reading this because you are newly engaged and trying to decide on your wedding photographer, I plead to you to book Haley! Her photos speak for themselves. However what I need you to consider is what she does behind the scenes. Her knowledge and advice is next to none. She is so experienced! Not only with the photo side of things, but the wedding as a whole. She has this wedding gig down packed! I was honored to have her next to me the whole day calming my nerves and directing me when I got emotional and flustered. I couldn’t have imagined anyone better. The time and effort she invests into you is effortless. I will always be thankful for Haley. More than she will ever know. Haley - I’m sorry I wasn’t able to finish my speech thanking you due to my tears. But there’s honestly no words to express how thankful I am. All the best to your future brides. They are so lucky to have you.

We cannot recommend Haley enough! She has lots of knowledge, tips and tricks for a successful day, she's heaps of fun and her work is AMAZING!! She convinced us to do an engagement shoot first which we were unsure/nervous about, but we had an awesome time, got to know Haley and when we saw the photos we knew our wedding photos would be stunning. We couldn't have picked a better person to spend our special day with, we felt relaxed, had so many laughs and the pictures captured reflect every part of our day perfectly. Thanks Haley you will be seeing us again soon! xx

I honestly cant even find the words to describe how highly I recommend and rate Haley. From start to finish the service Haley provides is outstanding all of the small details and touches are next level they really go above and beyond and put her company in a different category of excellence. & that's before she blows you away with her stellar photos. She 100% made our day and captured perfectly. For two awkward camera shy people she some how made that not come across in our pix. I am so happy we chose Haley to be apart of our day. THANK YOU! x x

Wow where do I start!! I was so taken back by the stunning photos of our wedding day. Hayley captured the love & created beautiful memories in every photo.
Hayley was so personable and bubbly to work with. She is real, honest & really goes above & beyond with the small details. She was even helping me with my hair just before I left to the ceremony.
On top of her beautiful photography she took the time to write a heartfelt blog about us that serves as the perfect keepsake for years & years to come. It pulled many heart strings to my friends & family all over the world. Hayley’s talent behind the camera is incredible , I highly recommend her to anyone who wants their special moments captured.

Haley photographed our wedding a few weeks ago and i would definitely recommend her! She is kind, thoughtful, organised, and most importnantly she knows what she's doing and how to capture those moments of the day you want to cherish forever.
And pre-wedding she is always has time to speak with you to plan how you want things to work. I felt very stressfree on the day knowing Haley was in charge of photgraphing our day. And the photos we've got back so far are simply stunning!!! Thank you haley!!!

Haley is a fantastic photographer. We engaged her prior to the NZ lockdown but she remained consistently responsive and kind. She was extremely hard working but remained unobtrusive, with plenty of well framed and coloured candid shots. She was very good at keeping time as our wedding had quite a tight schedule. She has an eye for detail - for example able to see and fix Bonnie's make-up and hair when needed to get the best shots. We would wholeheartedly recommend her to anybody who needs a professional photographer. Thanks Haley!

Being a bit camera shy, Haley had the patience to get me out of my shell. Working with her was an absolute pleasure. Haley is professional and with her bubbly nature this photoshoot proved to be a great experience for me.

Kate & George

Haley is truly incredible! Her talent behind the camera is undeniable (I mean, just scroll through her blog 😍), but her ability to make even the most reluctant subject feel comfortable is a gift! Haley is a laugh a minute and her genuine, warm nature makes her a breeze to be around - you’ll feel like best friends before you know it. Cannot recommend her more 👏🏻

Danny & Duncan

Whangarei, Northland

Haley is an absolute superstar! She went over and above for our wedding and so I cannot recommend her enough to be your wedding photographer! Planning a wedding yourself can be intimidating as there is so much to do, Haley has been to over a 100 weddings as a photographer and so was incredibly helpful, taking us step by step through a wedding day to ensure we had everything covered while giving us advice and tips. She also had vendor ideas and was happy to help answer any query by being an excellent communicator.

On the wedding day she wasn’t well but all her energy went into giving us the perfect day and creating the most stunning shots of our wedding. She was amazing at making us feel comfortable and getting us into positions that were flattering and felt natural. I was particularly impressed by the wide variety of photos she shot and that she didn’t send us multiples of the same photo (instead she selected the best from each shoot). We have so many beautiful photos to remember our wedding! Her photos are a particular style that are consistent, professional and will echo through the ages, while capturing the full essence of your unique day.

Thank you so much Haley for EVERYTHING you did for us, we don’t know what we would have done without you. Our wedding was the best experience of our lives and having you a part of it and capturing it for us made it even more special!

I can not thank Haley enough for the amazing experience and portraits she created for my mum and I.
Many emotional happy tears were shared over the experience.
I wish there were words to explain the magic that Haley creates but I think they only way is to experience it yourself.
Thankyou again Beautiful women for helping create memories that will last a lifetime and more xx

Today was amazing. I think as humans we are programmed to tune into our flaws - especially in photographs. I, like most people struggle to find photographs of myself that I like. Today I sat in front of a wall of 30 photographs taken by an amazing, talented and kind gal. I admit I was scared to do it - I've never had a good relationship with my body and over the last few weeks due to a few circumstances, my body image and body dysmorphia has been terrible. But you know what, it felt amazingly refreshing to look at them all with kind eyes and see my beauty and strength shining through. I am in love with my photos and so thankful for the opportunity to feel beautiful and see it as well. So thank you again Haley Adele Portraits for making me see that I am beautiful, even though my mind tells me otherwise most of the time.

Haley was the photographer for our wedding and we couldn't have asked for anything more. She is a professional who knows how to get people where they need to be for photos (many photographers aren't so good with the people management!)

When we got our photos back, we were very happy with the results. She captured our day perfectly. Would definitely recommend!

We’ve just spent the last 2 and a bit hours being obsessed with every single moment!

She was awesome. We looked high and low for a photographer but Haley was the only one I actually arranged to meet and had to book!

On the wedding day she really helped to hold it together and went above and beyond just taking photos. Our sneak peaks were available the next morning which I thought was amazing.

Our full online gallery was ready within the 10 week timeframe as per contract and we love our photos.

Big thanks Haley - from the Palmers x

Haley and I have known each other for many years and she is one of the most naturally creative and talented people I know. She has the eye for it, something you can not be taught, something that comes from within. I have watched her work so hard over the years, be so brave and continue to grow and push herself! Let me just say, it has all paid off! She is now an outstanding, very professional, well known Photographer. She did it. My family were lucky enough to get a shoot with Haley over the weekend and she made it so comfortable, easy and fun! I was terrified to have photos taken that I didn't have control over, always having an excuse about wanting to "look" better before I book it.. but boy am I happy we did it. I now have beautifully taken photos of my family in a stunning location that will be cherished for ever. My children can treasure these, show their kids one day. As we age we lose parts of ourselves, I am so happy I will have these to look back on. A captured moment in time. The happiness, laughter and connection is preserved within each image. We can be reminded of this feeling every time we look at them. Thank you so much Haley. I can not recommend taking the leap and doing a Family Photo Shoot with her more! 10 out of 10 ♡ xoxo

Absolutely amazing photographer! My family hate being photographed so are extremely awkward but Haley made us all feel relaxed and have some fun during our shoot. The photos turned out amazing. Thanks so much Haley! 💕

Haley was such a huge help on our wedding day and before, recommending vendors, helping ensure the day ran smoothly and of course taking amazing pics all day!! I absolutely love the sneak peak pictures and cannot wait to look through the rest. Thank you so much Haley!!

Haley is amazing! I feel so lucky to have chosen her to be our photographer on our wedding day. Our photos look beautiful, and she really captures the "in the moment" photos. Really reasonably priced too compared to a lot of other photographer's out there, so I highly recommend.

Bec & Sam

Hiring Haley for our wedding was our best decision we made, we absolutely love the work she has done for us, not to mention the amount of laughs and good times we had capturing these pictures. Haley captured every moment of our day and we are beyond happy with the photos Haley delivered us, and can only describe them as the photos we had only dreamed of getting. I would highly recommend her and if I get the chance again to use Haley I would definitely use her again in the future. Thanks Haley for capturing our day so beautifully and giving us photos we can remember our day forever and cherish.

Haley and Ross are not only amazingly talented in their work but are also great people to have around!

Haley went above and beyond to fix my hair throughout the day, had clear umbrellas on hand when it started to rain

(which we were unprepared for!), taught me how to carry my train and gave heaps more advice!

We got our sneak peaks the very next morning after our wedding and we are so, so in love with them!

Apparently I can only do one review so I’ll post here and hope people are able to see. - I’ve had Haley photograph some family photos about a year ago and most recently for a wedding that I was in. I can’t recommend her and Ross enough!!! Haley really truly has an eye for beautiful photos. I didn’t even notice but whilst we were getting ready she was photographing things we would have never even thought of but am so grateful she captured. As the day went on I started to feel like I didn’t even see her much but my goodness she was there!! The images she has captured are stunning and there wasn’t a moment missed and we’ve only seen the sneak peek! From a maid of honour’s perspective I highly recommend Haley and Ross for not only weddings but everything in between and I know for sure when one day it’s finally my turn she will be my photographer ❤️❤️❤️ one talented lady thank you for capturing not only my family but the bride and grooms photos that will be cherished for many many years to come x x x

Haley helped make our big day absolutely amazing. She was so easy to deal with and really helped with getting my good angles. She even helped with giving a clueless bride and groom wedding pointers and the photos are absolutely amazing we can't stop looking at them. I really couldn't recommend Haley more.

Gemma & Joel

We were so lucky to have Haley as our photographer for our wedding. We were blown away with the quality and quantity of images we received back.

Haley and Ross are absolutely fantastic photographers! If anyone were getting married, I would send them their contact details. Haley and Ross make you feel at ease and it doesn't feel like you have a camera in your face all the time. We chose the package where we also got an engagement photo shoot, and straight away we knew they would be perfect for our wedding day! Since those pictures turned out beautiful, we knew that our wedding photos would be just as amazing or better. Throughout the wedding day, we didn't even realize where they were, but looking at the photos, they got every beautiful shot from multiple different angles. Looking through the photos was like re-living the day again. If you are looking for high quality photos with a laid back lovely photographer, look no further, you have found her!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the most incredible photos of me and my beautiful little family 😍 only someone special like you can capture the pure love between the 3 (soon to be 4) of us ❤️❤️ I can't recommend you enough. Thank you so much!!! xoxoxox

I've had the absolute pleasure of having a couple of photo sessions with Haley now. Haley is a dear friend of mine and although some may say I am bias she is so incredibly talented at what she does and I am so proud of her turning her talent and passion into a career. Her photos truly speak for themselves. I personally am quite self conscious and will run a mile from a camera any time I see one appear, so to put myself in that position of a one on one photo session was very hard for me. However Haley is extremely patient, caring and helpful with overcoming this and seeing the end results truly blows you away.. you take a second look and think HOW IS THAT ME! I highly recommend Haley for any photography requirements and I hope your future in the industry Haley is bright and rewarding - Sophie xo.

Haley is an amazing photographer and well deserving of any praise. We had a fantastic experience with our newborn shoot and the results are beyond our expectation.

Firstly, during the session she was professional and personable. Haley was very reassuring when Emilia wasn't settling and was more than happy and able to take the time to settle her. During the photos that involved me and my wife she gave clear direction and really knew what she wanted from us to get the best shots (even though we were definitely not great models).

The photos that we have received are absolutely perfect and we will cherish them forever. We really love the colours that Haley uses in her shoot and editing. We could not have asked for better, 10 out of 10.

Haley has been amazing though my whole experience, I started with her doing a photo shoot with some other girls, been a bigger girl I felt a bit uncomfortable, but soon started to warm up.Haley made me feel so easy and comfortable and when I got my photos back I felt totally beautiful! Then me and my partner decided to do our engagement photos, she was warm and easy to work with so flexible, we were the awkward type but that didn't stop her again her photos come back beautiful! We have booked her for our 2019 wedding and she has been nothing but amazing! I couldn't recommend her highly enough for the amazing and beautiful work she does!!!
