I am Hayley Narvaez, pronounced Nar (with a fancy roll of the tongue)-by-eth). I was born in Sydney, grew up in Perth and spent many school holidays down in Margs. Most of my 20's were spent abroad, eager to see the world, explore new landscapes and experience other cultures. Talk to me about anything travel and you could have me talking for days. If you put aside creating films, travel is my ultimate passion where I truly feel most at ease.
After many years abroad, I temporarily "settled" in San Sebastian, Spain. It was here where I met my husband, discovered my obsession for croquettes, tortilla, Spanish shoes, international tv series and stumbled upon what became a love for documenting life through film.
Im a pretty chilled, easy going person who values real and authentic connections. I love people watching. There is something so captivating about the way people interact and go about their day when they don't know anyone is watching.
Who are my films for?
the hopeless romantics, the couples which push the boundaries, the quirky, the party animals, the free spirited and
The crazy unapologetically beautiful
MY STYLE AND APPROACH
I believe your wedding film should be all about YOUR story. Beautiful, messy, and unapologetically you. This is what I strive to create in my films.
I am wild about capturing every part your wedding; the laughter and tears, the anticipation, the small interactions that often go unnoticed, and my all time favourite, the questionable dance moves. A Wedding really is my very own people watching paradise.
My approach is very laid back. You won't see me fussing over awkward poses or anything hectic like that. I prefer to just sit back and watch as things unfold before me.
It's safe to say that at the end, when your wedding is done and dusted, I will be locked away in my office either ugly crying or laughing in hysterics. That's just the beauty of weddings and why I love my job so much. I will take the weird and the wonderful and curate it into all kinds of crazy beautiful.
My other love
Australia: the country I was blessed to be born.
So as you have already gathered...I love to travel. And as quoted before...
"like many great travellers , I have seen more than I can remember and remember more than I have seen."
Here are just a few of the places which inspired me and played a special role.
Egypt: the country which ignited my love for travel
Disney Cruise ship: My first home away from home where I spent 4 months living and working
Ireland: The first country where I lived for 2 amazing years.
Africa: The continent which stole a part of my heart.
Spain: the country I called home for 3 years and where I met my better half.
