HEY there new FRIEND.
First of all, I am honored you've seen something in my work that caught your eye. It will never get old that couples like you trust me to capture your most important, intimate life moments - and I absolutely do not take that for granted.
Growing up I moved around a lot and had the opportunity to live in some amazing places around the world. I've always loved taking photos, documenting my adventures, and sharing them with others.
I have a degree in elementary education but my teaching career didn't last long as I knew from the beginning there was something else out there for me. Photography had always been a hobby of mine, but it wasn't until after I had my daughter in 2018 that I decided to follow my heart and dive into it fully and completely. Starting my photography business has been one of the best decisions I've ever made and I feel so blessed to say that I absolutely LOVE my job.
There's truly nothing I'd rather do and I can't imagine a better way to spend my days. Whether I'm taking you on an adventurous sunset hike, helping you plan your dream elopement, or breaking it down on the dance floor with you guys at your wedding - I always have the best time and I get to do it all with a camera in my hand!
Get to know me
I love going to local breweries and sipping on whatever IPA is on tap. (Goat Patch Hazy is hands-down the best around.)
My daughter is my mini me and I'm obsessed with her. She's my best friend and I wouldn't have it any other way.
My favorite food is tacos and I could probably eat them everyday and never get sick of them. My go-to taco spot in town is Dos Santos.
Reality shows are my guilty pleasure. You can catch me with The Bachelor, Vanderpump Rules, or Real Housewives playing in the background while I'm editing your photos.
I have a Shiba Inu (doge) named Moses. He's the most handsome dog in the world and I'm not biased at all.
I once had an elephant walk right up to me and take my hat off while on an African safari when I was a kid.
Being outside is my favorite form of therapy. I feel the most at-peace in nature. Whether it's hiking on a trail, walking around the neighborhood, or skiing down a mountain, I am in my element.
did we just become best FRIENDS?
"The best photoshoot experience ever. Ali made us feel so comfortable, the shoot was very laid back and we were truly able to be ourselves and our pictures are results of that. I am forever grateful for Ali and her work she did for us they are truly beautiful photos we will cherish forever. Don’t hesitate BOOK WITH HER!"
