One of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken, on the streets of Paris. 🖤⠀ ⠀ I believe that photography is a way that we show emotion, show the soul, preserve one of the most precious things we have (memories of loved ones), to remember important moments, important feelings.⠀ ⠀ It’s been an intense, emotional, confusing, frustrating, and all around mind boggling year so far. Like a lot of you, I have been and am still doing a lot of internal work to confront my white privilege, while also having important conversations with those around me about how to make some real concrete changes. Just because it may feel like things have “slowed down” doesn’t mean it has and doesn’t mean that doing the work has to. White friends, I encourage you to keep fighting, keep listening, keep learning, keep changing, keep lifting up the black community. I’m right there with you.

A lot of my couples have chosen to have smaller, more intimate ceremonies and have a larger wedding next year and I can’t tell you how excited I am to be shooting again! This year has been so insane, but I’m so happy that people are choosing to wed regardless of these circumstances. Intimate weddings can be some of the most romantic, beautiful, and thoughtful events—all the details, gorgeous florals, and small tablescapes...I can’t wait! 🖤🥰 photography/styling @hayleywaldophoto venue @philbrookmuseum florals/styling @anthousai hair/makeup @hannahmillerartistry dress @shopbryde @alexandragrecco suit @theblacktux shoes @bellabelleshoes earrings @naturae_design rings @_dillonrose stationery @elivrosenkranz tablescape rentals @telluria.co table linen @latavolalinen chairs @partyprorents ribbon @tonoandco
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms and mother figures in your life! ⠀ ⠀ This first 3 photos are of @tinythuong and her mom. She won my mini session giveaway last fall and she decided to do the session with her mother because she said she really wanted new photos! I love the moments captured between them. 🖤 ⠀ ⠀ The next photos are some of my favorites on the wedding day. I love when brides choose to share their first moments in their wedding dress with their mom. It’s a special moment that I shared with my mom as well that I will treasure forever! 🖤
It’s been a long time coming, but I’ve finally updated my website! It is FULL of new portfolio galleries, a peek into my wedding experience, the loveliest testimonials, and so much more! ⠀ ⠀ I’m still working on a blog and should have that up and running within the week. I’m so excited for this new face of my business! ⠀ ⠀ Check it out at hayleywaldo.com and let me know what you think below! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 - Planning & Design/Host - @birdsofafeatherevents Lead Photographer/Host - @charlastorey Workshop series - @theelevateseries Flowers - @maxowensdesign Venue - @waltersweddingestates @theolanatx Stationery - @tiethatbinds Cake - @shannonstarcakes Linens - @latavolalinen Rentals - @bellaacento Gown - @lovelybride @lovelybridedallas @marchesafashion Shoes - @bellabelleshoes Menswear - @theblacktux Hair and Makeup - @nataliaissa
Tanner often asks me, “if you could be anywhere right now, where would you go?” I miss traveling. I’m finally allowing myself to mourn some of the trips I was planning on making in April and May... including one much anticipated trip to Barcelona which I was supposed to make yesterday. ⠀ ⠀ Instead, we are making the most of this time and being grateful for what we have. But I’m really itching to travel again and I can’t wait. Are you planning any trips during quarantine? I want to dream with you! Where are you going as soon as this is all behind us? ✈️ 🗺
