California has some of the most diverse landscapes of any state! From the lowest point in the US in Death Valley, to one of the highest waterfalls in the world in Yosemite National Parks, CA has so many amazing things to see!

California is home to six out of ten top U.S. vacation destinations according to USA Today . It consists of beautiful beaches like Santa Monica and San Diego, world-famous cities like Los Angeles , fun theme parks like Disneyland (which you can even elope at!), stunning national parks including Yosemite National Park and Joshua Tree National Park , and fantastic wine country like Napa Valley.

Jerry + Jeanine

Her photos of our wedding day turned out stunning and I’ve gotten hundreds (literally) of comments praising them. Thank you haley! I’ll forever be recommending you for elopement photography.

Haley was incredible and such a great person to have around on our wedding day. She gives subtle queues for people like my husband and I who aren’t super comfortable in front of a camera.

 She understood my exact vision for our elopement photos and we have gotten so many compliments on our pictures! I highly recommend Haley Boothe Photography!

Haley was so great to work with! She was excellent with communicating both before and after our session and she was the perfect mix of down to earth and professional!
