HI, I’M REBECCA!
I’m a freckly, 90’s music loving, travel-ready photographer making my way through life in Chicago & Denver.
My journey in photography started when I graduated from college with a degree in Communication many moons ago. My degree allowed me to see the importance in storytelling through words, but I realized I had already found my favorite way to tell stories long before college that had no connection to the words I studied, and that was through the narrative of pictures. My camera allows for the same powerful feat my words can achieve: freeze a moment in time, transcribe memories, and capture timeless joy.
After photographing countless weddings over the past 9 years, I have quickly realized the important need for bright, romantic, natural wedding photography captured by genuine photographers who truly care about your day. When I built my brand of Rebecca Haley Photography, I knew I wanted to create a team of talented photographers who share this passion and vision for wedding photography.
When you hire a photographer from Rebecca Haley Photography, you are getting so much more than just another vendor. You are gaining a friend, an artist, and someone who loves your love story.
So, come say hello! Whether you just want to talk about how great deep dish pizza is, or are looking to capture a fleeting moment in your life, I’m your girl. My journey starts where your story begins. So, tell me your story. I can’t wait to hear it.
MEET THE TEAM
MARINA | Associate
Marina is a Minneapolis native who loved the life she built in LA, but her midwest roots pulled her back to Chicago with her sweet husband and new baby girl, Marlow.
After photographing over 43 weddings alongside me, I knew Marina had a talent and eye that needed to be shared with my couples. While she has only been a part of the Rebecca Haley team for 5 years, she has been a part of the photography industry for over 7 years. In addition, she attended school for applied arts- the true start to where she fell in love with the idea of capturing love stories.
Marina has the most calm, uplifting, and optimistic presence on wedding days that allows her to capture all the big moments, while also cherishing the small in-between ones as well. She isn’t afraid to take risks and loves couples who feel the same.
COURTNEY | associate
If you’re looking for a warm, caring, genuine, insanely talented photographer, Courtney is your gal. She can most often be found with her tiny pup, Churro, in one hand and a latte in the other.
Before joining the Rebecca Haley team, Courtney photographed over 100 weddings where 100 couples fell in love with her. Courtney is our resident jet setter, and splits her time between New York, Hawaii, and Chicago…but has her passport ready to meet you just about anywhere.
Courtney exudes joy that can be felt the instant she walks into any room. She brings not only her artful eye and insane creativity to wedding days, but also her sense of humor and upbeat energy. She does quite literally anything to get “THE” shot she’s imagining, and her dedication is one of the many, many reasons our couples adore her.
JACKIE | SECOND SHOOTER
Have you ever wished you could have a best friend who’s only job is to make your life easier and make you feel like a million bucks? SAY HELLO TO JACKIE!
Jackie is our resident second shooter, baby whisperer, bride’s best friend, and all around general hero. She’s the brains behind the Rebecca Haley operation, and somehow blends logic with creativity in ways Picasso or the rest of the Rebecca Haley team might never understand.
She’s got a natural talent for shooting that could make anyone jealous, but when paired with her ability to also be an all around incredible human, it almost makes you wonder how the heck she does it all. Maybe one day she will spill her secrets, but until then, we will love watching her shine as a second shooter at most Rebecca Haley weddings.
We are available for travel worldwide & provide special travel discounts to select locations. We are equal rights vendors & welcome any race, gender, sexual orientation, age, ethnicity, etc.
