This was my first time doing a photoshoot with Hayley, and she made me feel so incredibly comfortable! You would absolutely not be able to tell that I was a little nervous about the shoot! I love how she made the mood very relaxed, fun, and light-hearted. She knew exactly how to get the best shots and she provided the perfect balance of direction and freedom. The photos came out better than I imagined. The colours, the quality, the diversity in the images. All spectacular. If you’ve ever felt a little too shy to have photos taken of yourself, Hayley is absolutely your go-to to conquer that fear. I have no doubt that she is an expert in the field and will continue to produce incredible images for every client she has. You will be in wonderful hands!
"Hayley is one of the most talented, creative and easy to get along with photographers that I have worked with. She did an amazing job and we loved how natural the pictures came out. She really brought in our personalities into the pictures which I feel is one of the special aspects to her photography. Hayley went above and beyond for our couple shoot, from the location, props to the exquisite prints. Not only were the photographs beautiful, but she truly made the experience so fun, easy, enjoyable and comfortable. She is a fantastic artist and creates photographs that tell stories and enhance the sweetness of looking back on an amazing day. All our friends and family absolutely loved our photos! Thank you, Hayley, we are extremely grateful and we definitely recommend using her!"
Hayley was beyond AMAZING. She was very accommodating ever since I first contacted her. She was patient while working with 7 adults, 2 kids under 3 and 2 dogs! She was able to get all the different groups within our big group in a very timely matter! My family and I loved working Hayley, after the photoshoot we couldn't stop talking about how excited we all were because we all felt like Hayley really went beyond our expectations.
Without a doubt, I would contact Hayley for any future photoshoots!
From the start of our session with Hayley to the moment we were printing and hanging the photos you couldn’t wipe the smile off of our faces! Hayley is professional, friendly, and has a way of making you feel comfortable throughout. On top of that, not only were the photos beautiful but they also truly captured our emotions at the time. Thank you Hayley for giving us photos that mean so much.

Hayley did an incredible job of making the photoshoot a fun activity. She found ways to make us laugh together and capture those moments in a stunning picture. She came prepared with multiple ideas and suggestions on poses/locations. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a great time and stunning pictures.

"Hayley was so great to work with! She was easy to communicate with, flexible with her time, creative with her ideas and open to ours. She was professional, respectful, patient, kind, understanding, clear and focused. We love our wedding photos and would (and have) recommend her to anyone looking for amazing and memorable photos for their special occasion.
We had concerns about finding a photographer that would share the same image we had, or provide the right look we were going for. We definitely found a good match with Hayley. She was able to take all the photos we wished for, both posed and candid, with the right light, location and time. She was very creative and looked for interesting ways to get great shots. She took photos that I didn't even know about, and was so happy to see afterward! We felt that there were so many great photos taken, it was hard to choose which ones we wanted to give family, fame or blow up - and that was a good problem to have! She is a gifted young lady and we both thank you again and wish you the best in your future! I am sure we will work together again one day!"

As soon as I met Hayley, I was happy to find that she was great to work with as she has an easygoing positive attitude. I was surprised at how attentive Hayley was in capturing the naturally beautiful moments not only between my partner and I but our families and our beautiful outdoor ceremony venue. I was also incredibly impressed with the amazingly edited video of our wedding vows, speeches, dances and all, wonderfully put together including the special songs we had playing for each event throughout the day! We will cherish this video for years and years to come! Hayley is a passionate, skilled photographer who is open to many suggestions and is dedicated to capturing all the moments and poses you would like for your special day! Her services are affordably priced when compared to other wedding photographers in the area, however, the service and photos which you receive in the end are incomparable! Hayley Zumkeller Photography is great for brides and grooms who want amazing quality photos!

"We were very happy with the photography service provided by Hayley for our wedding on Quadra Island in July 2018. I am not going to lie I hate having my picture taken but I was not about to get married without any photographs! Hayley made the process fun and easy; well at least as fun and easy as it can be for me ;) Hayley was just the right amount of professional and she had a fun-loving, easy-going way about her. We love the photographs of our ceremony, us and friends and family. I was really excited to find some great pictures of our littlest love, our dog Bandit! I would definitely recommend Hayley for your photography needs."
- Caz Steiman
"Hayley did our engagement and wedding photos. She is incredible, her talent to use raw light is what made us gravitate towards her! We wanted photos that made us proud and to see all that we missed on our big day. I would not hesitate to recommend Hayley! Her professionalism and positive attitude make her so easy to work with! She has an eye for photography and you're missing out if you don’t get photos done by her at least once. If you need a level headed photographer who listens to your needs and achieves your wants, Hayley your girl! Lastly, your video work made me cry it was so lovely, I rarely cry. It’s just amazing to have these things to hold onto when they're done well. You were so understanding both times we worked together your attitude really reflects the love you put into your profession and for that we are grateful."
"I reached out to Hayley because I had seen she took some really nice quality pictures for some friends of mine for prom. I needed portraits of myself as I had just started modeling & wanted them to build my portfolio. Hayley picked a wonderful location & had a clear idea of what she wanted to do, which was really great as I didn’t have much experience. I was nervous but she made me feel comfortable right from the beginning. She was helpful by directing me where to look and how to pose without it looking unnatural & even was able to capture my natural smile & laugh! Hayley was quick to edit the photos and get them back to me, I was very pleased with them right away. I have since done many shoots with other photographers but the shoot I did with Hayley will always be my favourite! I’m hoping that we will be able to shoot together again soon!"
- Jessica Jenkins
"Hayley did our engagement photos and multiple family photo shoots and I am still in love with every picture. She is extremely passionate, organized and so fun to work with. Hayley made us feel extremely comfortable and relaxed. She thinks of innovative and fun shots that capture the surroundings and personality of the people she photographs. I will be using Hayley again and again as she provides an effortless experience and beautiful photos."

"We had Hayley as our wedding Videographer at Gowlland Harbour Resort in August 2018. We were going back and forth on deciding whether or not to hire a videographer and we are so so so happy we decided to do it and work with Hayley. The videos turned out amazing and she did such a great job capturing our day and all the little moments that made it so special. She was able to capture the whole ceremony, all the speeches AND give us a highlight video of the full day. We have loved being able to watch the videos and relive the day, it's also been great to share the videos with some of our family members who could not attend the wedding. Hayley was so fun and easy to work with, she fit right into our wedding party and worked together so well with our photographer. We would 100% recommend working with Hayley and having her as a wedding videographer, she was an absolute pleasure to work with."

"My husband and I had the privilege of working with Hayley as our videographer during our wedding in Campbell River, summer 2018. During the planning process, I had a few close friends say that their one regret from their wedding was not hiring a videographer. After a recommendation from another close friend, we chose Hayley to document our special day. I can’t begin to explain how happy we are that we made this choice. Hayley is friendly, easy-going, and made us feel so comfortable. Hayley is easy to communicate with and she took into account everything we had hoped for in our video. Much like most newlyweds, we were eager to see the final results. Hayley had our videos to us very quickly and the results are beyond what we had ever imagined! Every time we watch it (which is still frequent... even months after our wedding day has passed) we smile, laugh, and cry. It brings us so much joy to see the smiles on everyone’s faces and to see our guests dancing up a storm. The video perfectly displays all of the love we felt on our wedding day! We know that we will treasure the moments Hayley captured on film for years to come. So, if there is even a doubt in your mind about hiring a videographer for your wedding, I would without hesitation recommend you choose Hayley to document your special day! Thank you again Hayley, we cannot thank you enough."

"Words can't even explain how amazing Hayley Zumkeller is! The wedding video that she made for us will be a treasured memory that we have for a lifetime. Every time we watch our 9 min highlight video we get to relive the most amazing day! She was kind, patient and flexible. We couldn't have asked for a more amazing person to be part of our special day. The video she produced literally took our breath away. We can not thank her enough! oxox"

"We were trying to plan our wedding to be budget-friendly and many people tried to steer us away from a videographer. I was fairly adamant that I wanted at least some video footage. I heard that Hayley was just starting out but did really great work. As soon as she came I knew that she was the perfect fit for us. She was calm and relaxed, but still very professional. She worked well with our photographer, for along with everyone who was part of our day, and helped everyone feel at ease in front of the camera. She was open to suggestions but also had a vision for the day.
After Hayley did our wedding video, we were so in love with her work that we have since done maternity and family photos with her. She always gives us tons of beautiful photos to choose from and we love displaying her work in our home."
"When I was in the process of planning my wedding, documentation was pretty low on the list. The thought of a videographer crossed my mind but I figured it was a bit of a luxury and didn’t want to make room in the budget. As the day got closer, I started to regret my decision and a coworker suggested her friend, Hayley. Lucky for me, she was available!
Fast forward to our wedding day, Hayley was an absolute gem and a welcomed part of our day. I really didn’t know what I wanted out of the video other than having our vows being heard in the background (which she made sure to include). Hayley was so easy going and had great suggestions. She made sure to capture every special moment by traveling with us to 4 locations around Campbell River!
Although she was our videographer, she also captured some amazing still images for us and we received it all within a couple of weeks. The video Hayley put together for us reflects our day perfectly. It’s so wonderful to look back on our special day and I love that we’ll be able to show our kids what a beautiful beginning our family has. Thank you so much Hayley!!"
