I'm Haley Bentz & I was born and raised in North Dakota but currently call the stunning Black Hills of South Dakota home. My love for photography started with taking photos of flowers in my grandmas garden and quickly blossomed into my passion and now a career.

I am an artist specializing in weddings and senior sessions, I take pride in capturing the effortlessly beautiful, naturally sweet moments of life.

Want to know more? Read some fun facts below :)

Fact no.1


I graduated college in 2021 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography. I always knew I wanted to photograph people and capture all of life's emotions, but it wasn't until I started photographing weddings in 2018 that I realized that was my true calling and how I wanted to use my degree!

Fact no.2


I LOVE houseplants! My obsession started with an aloe and a philodendron my mom gifted me and now, 4 months later I have over 20 plants..let's just say the air quality in my house is incredible.

Fact no.3


My birthday is one of my favorite days of the year. Being a September baby makes me a Virgo & if you know anything about astrology (it's okay if you don't), Virgos are very type-A and we are MAJOR planners. One of my favorite things to buy myself (other than plants) is a new planner at the beginning of every year. Being a natural born planner is a major win in this job.

I love this job, let me tell you why

I've been photographing weddings for 5 years and I just can't get enough. My job goes beyond just showing up, photographing the day and leaving. From the moment you book with me I am fully invested in your day and how I can best serve you. Found the perfect dress and want to send it to me? I'll be your biggest hype girl! Need help finding other wedding vendors? I have a list of amazing vendors in the Black Hills who I know and trust! Other than sharing the tips & tricks I've learned over the years, I help make a custom timeline for your day along with a photo list to make sure we get all those photos you've been dreaming of. As your wedding photographer I promise to go above and beyond to capture every moment of your dream wedding.
