A photography studio focused on intentional and detailed storytelling

Your story and experience is my top priority. It is how I tell my best stories and leave my clients looking forward to having their photos taken again. You won't have just one favorite photo but a whole gallery that makes you remember your day vividly, emotionally and serenely. I will plan with you, guide you and be a helping hand throughout your whole experience. 

Your photographer,
Haley Jessat

A Message from the founder


my approach

Creating an unforgettable experience while Telling your story intentionally 

I take every single shot with the idea that it could be hung as a print on the walls of your home. I guide with direction so do not worry about any awkward moments. I am all for the in-between moments, details and real laughs!

I recently just picked up cross country skiing since there are nordic trails across the street from where I live. I have been snowboarding since I was 5 so learning to balance on skis is a fun challenge. 

I used to have a Jeep but it sadly wasn't reliable enough for driving all over Glacier. Now I enjoy my 4runnner for play work and casual driving!

Since I was 14 I've been obsessed with how free I feel while wake surfing. We go boating every summer and even get cabin fever at the end of May and surf in wet suits on Whitefish Lake.

I have so many photographs of me riding horses since I was a tiny girl. I competed in barrel racing and breakaway roping during high school. I still barrel race today!

Late June through October we enjoy rafting and fly fishing. Since we live 10 minutes away from where the Middle Fork flows into the South fork, we are always down for a float and fly fish.
