I am a long time lover of photography. It started in my teens with film, dark rooms, and sneaking into abandoned buildings; eventually leading to a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). 

Photographing people became a passion of mine while working on my thesis.  In 2005 I began photographing weddings and corporate events and Cassi Hayden Photography was started.

After graduating from MICA, I was fortunate to be hired as a career photographer with M-NCPPC, Department of Parks & Recreation, Prince George's County and grew to be the Senior Photographer/Videographer for the agency.  I consider myself unbelievably fortunate that for more than a decade I have been able to make a living from my passion.  

I bring with me technical knowledge, expertice, and a fun spirit to create images that are true to my diverse clientele and their unique experiences.
