You bring the love. I bring the stoke. Together we create the adventure!

Hi there! I’m Halie West: the photographer and guide for your adventure. You shouldn’t have to go in alone on your wedding day. You shouldn’t have to shy away from the adventure worth taking.

I believe in doing what you love, being with who you love, and always saying I love you to those who matter most.
That’s why I chase adventure, photograph what excites me, seek the company of fellow dreamers, and kiss my partner, Stephen, and my pupper, Lilly, every chance I get.

I also believe that your wedding day should be your own.

Your love feels right. So should your wedding day!

That means creating a day that is entirely you. I’m here to help you do just that.

I’ll be with you every step of the way to create and plan an adventurous wedding day that’s meaningful and beautiful to you.  I want to be your guide. We can climb a mountain or stroll around a lake. Every adventure is worth taking.
Some of my favorite places to explore are Yosemite National Park, Joshua Tree National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and the little forests near my home.

I want to know you and your partner’s favorite places. Together, we can rediscover a place to fall in love with.

Let’s go off and wander so that a place becomes more than a memory. Let’s go on an adventure together.

I’m based out of CA & UT and am open to traveling to pretty much anywhere!

Let's adventure together!

My Approach

I believe in capturing your authentic selves in the simplest of ways

Many of my photos are candid as I take a documentary style approach to your love. I don’t do much posing. If you are “awkward” have no fear! We can be awkward together

I hope to get you outdoors. Get ready to run around and be silly with the one you love most while taking in the beauty of nature

My editing style is meant to simply capture the beauty of your day for what it is. Nothing more. Nothing less

My Values

Bettering the places we visit

The places we experience are a privilege. I believe in following LNT guidelines and leaving places better then we found them. Let’s help mother nature together.

Capturing your story together

I want to authentically tell and capture your love story. I want to know what makes your love unique, what makes you both feel alive, and how I can create a day you will never forget.

Creating a real experience

Your adventure wedding or adventure session should be about your love and your true selves. The day is completely your own and will be made just for you. Let’s create your dream day together.

Being genuine

I really hope that we become close friends. I will be genuine and authentic with you, and I hope that you will do the same. Together we can create a honest and meaningful adventure.
