Hey hey, I’m Haili!
I have been a photographer for what feels like my whole life. When I was a kid I had a fascination with cameras, I would use up all of my parents camera film, and one day they got so sick of it that they finally got me my own camera, the rest is history lol.
Fast forward 20 years and here I am doing photography and videography full time with my husband Ricky. Photographing memories is everything I’ve ever dreamt of. You know that nostalgic feeling you get flipping through your family photo books, that rush of emotions, the laughs, the tears, the good, the bad? That feeling is literally everything to me. It makes my heart so full to have a physical copy of a memory.
Onto more personal stuff about me. I am a scorpio. I am a dog mom to Ellie + Bear. I’m originally from California. I loooove music. I sometimes photograph concerts and studio sessions. In n Out Burger is LIFE. My favorite food is mac and cheese (but only if it was made by my mother-in-love). My favorite color is tan or olive green. I love interior design, drawing, painting, etc. I model occasionally. Last but not least, I don’t know what I would do without my husband………. or popcorn. ;)
Hey, I'm Ricky!!
I am a videographer/photographer and husband to Haili.
I took my film course back in high school and continued my education into college, but my love for the arts started long before I signed up for any class.
As a child you would find me with my moms' old-school digital camera in my hands at all family events, her own wedding included! As an adult, I now have the opportunity to see how much my family cherishes the moments I captured.
The feeling being around a certain someone brings you, stolen moments with loved ones now passed, subtle details long forgotten — all of this exists within a photograph, and even more so in a video. I bring this truth to each and every one of our sessions.
On top of the work, my favorite part of our H+R Photo and Film journey has been connecting with our clients as people! I’ve crossed paths with most of my favorite people in this world thanks to my camera (this includes my wife!)
I can’t wait to not only hear your story but cement it in time for future generations to come!
“Haili and Ricky were so professional and easy to work with. Everything was seamless and took so much stress of our table when it came to the engagement and wedding day! Our pictures look magical and they captured every beautiful moment, I would recommend them to EVERYONE if they want the best! Thank you both for capturing the best day of our lives!”
