If you are a couple looking for a wedding photographer who will capture those all important moments in such an unobtrusive way you don’t know you're being photographed, you’ve come to the right place. I specialise in documentary wedding photography, my relaxed working style helps even the most camera shy couples feel comfortable.
My style is best described as 'natural, timeless and romantic', I offer unscripted wedding photography for couples who don't want to spend their whole day posing. Together, we will get some stunning portraits, but your wedding doesn't need to feel like a studio shoot to be captured beautifully. I've captured over 150 weddings, and from my experience, the most epic shots are the moments which happen naturally. My style is influenced by film and fine art, and my work is characterised by vibrant colours and a profusion of natural light. I am Essex based, very close to Suffolk, and I cover the UK and beyond.
I have a warm personality and a BIG heart! Having worked as a wedding photographer for nearly a decade, I also come with a wealth of knowledge and experience, helping your day to run smoothly, and also helping you as a friend along the way.
"Not only did you capture the atmosphere of the day and the joy in everyone's faces (which you managed without forced photographs and going unnoticed) but you managed to get a huge amount of beautifully romantic photos of us - something neither of us (or a number of the guests) would have thought possible"...

Thank you so much

Fantastic and would recommend!
We LOVE the photos - thank you so much
Not only did you capture the atmosphere of the day and the joy in everyone's faces (which you managed without forced photographs and going unnoticed) but you managed to get a huge amount of beautifully romantic photos of us - something neither of us (or a number of the guests) would have thought possible!
You got the obvious family shots but you also caught the 'moments' - the reactions to the speeches, the laughing at a joke made, the unconventional first dance! This is what we wanted to see and this is precisely what is shown in each and every one of the photos you took.
Not only did you do exactly what you said you would but you were lovely in doing so and you went along with our weird and whacky 'dinosaur' shot even to the point of pulling the photograph together without that having been part of the brief.
I am so glad we decided to have a photographer, I am so glad it was you and we couldn't have asked for more to capture the memories that were created on that day.
We feel so lucky.
Both me and my wife are very camera shy and generally do not enjoy having our photo taken. However, Hayley made us feel at ease throughout the day and went the extra mile to make us feel more confident in front of the camera.
Come the day of the wedding Hayley got all the shots we wanted, throughout the whole day she was so friendly, and her sense of humour helped us relax. In fact, our guests even commented on how friendly she was. Moreover, she was so patient putting up with my tendency to involuntarily blink before a photo is taken, and with our guests also trying to get their own personal pictures.
We also loved Hayley’s style discreetly documenting the day with natural shots rather than having too many ‘staged’ photos (although she did take some excellent group shots). We recently received our photos and we are so happy with them. She really caught the whole day and it’s amazing to re-live the day by looking though them.
Thanks so much
She made it fun and easy.
Couldn't have wished for a better photographer.
Fantastic from start to finish.
On the day Hayley was inconspicuous during the ceremony and speeches, and when it came to group photos she organised everyone into the shot very well. I had comments from my guests that Hayley being such a lovely person added to the already great atmosphere.
We had our photos back this week and they are absolutely stunning! I love the way the photos are natural and that they really capture the personality of everyone. In the photos where me and my husband were outside you can't tell that we were actually freezing!
Thank you so much to Hayley Jayne you've been fantastic from start to finish.
The photos are stunning.
The photos are stunning. She captured our day perfectly, full of love and laughter.
Beautiful, natural photos
Hayley managed to capture moments of real laughs, real (happy!) tears and smiles. I felt so comfortable having Hayley with us for the day, she was unobtrusive and we could not have asked for a better photographer for our day.
Hayley, thank you for capturing so many happy memories from our day and providing us with an album we will forever cherish. Katie and Elliott x
We can't thank you enough!
I can't tell you how many times we have looked at them over and over again. It's so nice to have these amazing photos so we can relive our special day. We can't thank you enough!
Cannot thank her enough!
We've already recommended her to friends of ours
At all times, we found her to be kind and approachable whilst at the same time she was very professional. Her communication before, in between and after shoots was faultless too.
She took in board our list of requirements, even managing to capture the "perfect picture" between the groom and his daughter.
All in all, Hayley Jayne was the perfect photographer for our wedding and we couldn't of been happier.

We have every shot we wanted and then some. We had the perfect wedding and now we have a fabulous set of perfect photos so that we can remember it forever.
