As Seen on The Knot

Hi! I'm Leigh, the owner and principal photographer of Leigh Hayward Photography. I am a light & bright Charleston wedding photographer.  My interest in photography started when my grandfather gave me two of his vintage manual Olympus cameras. At the time, I was in art school at The American Intercontinental University in London, England. My interest grew into a passion and I received a BA in Visual Communications, majoring in photography. After graduating, I worked extensively in fashion portraiture in the UK. Homesick for the United States after 11 years abroad, I returned and started my photography business in sunny Charleston, SC in 2006. I've been loving the Lowcountry ever since!


Everyone has a story and I love getting to tell my client's through timeless images! Whatever the occasion, I will provide you with a diverse range of authentic, organic, and natural images which capture the detail and personality of the event.​ Let me capture YOUR love story!!
