If you’re new here, I’m Kaitlin - lover of chocolate cake, rainy days, and movie nights. On a regular day, you can find me at home editing my latest gallery or watching a cheesy Netflix rom-com. Oh, and I pretty much always have a Chick-Fil-A bag in hand! I'm a free-spirit with a love for adventure and the memories that come with them, and telling love stories is my all-time favorite thing to do!
I dabbled in photography in high school, documenting anything I could on a little Kodak, but didn't decide to make it my career path until 2017. Since then, I've completely fallen in love with capturing all of life's biggest moments, and I'm lucky to get to be apart of so many "big days," for so many people.
I spent a lot of time throughout high school watching Say Yes to the Dress marathons and dreaming up what my own wedding day would be like, and I always found the process of it all so magical. The magic in being a photographer doesn't come from the posed, structured moments- it comes from what happens in between. The genuine laughs, kisses on the cheek, and windblown hair are what make my heart happy.
I'm a firm believer in never having too many Polaroids, and want a home filled with them, along with framed photographs and scrapbooks of my own one day. For me, photos are the best way to relive all of my favorite days, and I strive to create that feeling for you, too!

"We hired Kaitlin to do my senior pictures and had to get them done relatively quickly as senior year was ending in a matter of days. She actually worked us into her schedule within the next week and all went well. The day was beautiful and Kaitlin did an amazing job. She’s very relaxed, but professional and made me feel very at ease. She sent us the fully edited pictures two days after she took them. The pictures were all so incredible, we had a hard time deciding which ones were our favorites!"

"Today I had my first ever boudoir shoot with Ms. Kaitlin and I was shocked by how comfortable it was. She is the sweetest person I've ever met and made me feel like a million bucks. I had an absolute blast. The sneak peek pictures I have seen are stunning. Book Kaitlin if you want a photographer who takes such pride in her work!"

"Hiring a photographer is a very important part of momentous events in our lives. It is something that only happens once, so you want to know that you can trust your photographer to be able to capture all those special moments. Kaitlin Hays did just that. I was extremely impressed with her eye for detail and all the photos taken at my daughter’s wedding. She captured all the special moments perfectly. Kaitlin is now my go-to photographer and I will recommend her to all my family and friends!"

"Kaitlin is a total pro! My husband and I absolutely loved having the opportunity to get our photos done by her! She was fun, energetic, authentic, and gave us the space to reciprocate in authenticity, which made it really fun to be in front of the camera and easy to be ourselves. Kaitlin also made us feel confident, reassuring us with peeks at the photos during the session, and complimenting us with the poses that we planned."
