ABOUT US

FILM PHOTOGRAPHY

- HI MY NAME IS ALI -

I’m a fine art film wedding and portrait photographer. I am married to the love of my life, a graphic designer named Evan who shares my love of creativity. I love ice cream, traveling, snuggling up and watching endless re-runs of Parks and Rec, game nights with my siblings and coffee. Not necessarily in that order. If I could get everyday to be sunny and 78 degrees I would and if I could have 1 million puppies I also would. My husband sends me pictures of puppies when I’m sad. Works like a charm.

I love weddings because they are unpredictable, joyful, heart-felt and unique.  After I got married I wanted to remember all the little things that made the day special. That my sweet hubby cried at our first look, my sisters working frantically on my hair and that all our people took part in making our ceremony so unique. The photos we got back from Erich McVey were perfect, they captured each moment and they are one of my most treasured possessions. I want to do the same for you that he did for us. I want to get to know you and your fiancé’s quirks that make you right for each other, I want to know what you’re most excited about for your day and I want to meet your friends! I want to capture all those fleeting, wind swept moments that are so easy to miss and leave you with a beautiful story of your wedding.

I started out as a digital photographer, a medium that I still value for many of it’s aspects but I have found that nothing suits this philosophy better than film. It has a texture and depth to it that you don’t find anywhere else and a nostalgic essence that truly captures the magic of a wedding.

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

My goal is to leave you with timeless images you will feel proud to have on your wall till you’re old and grey. None of those awkward prom poses that make you want to hide under your bed. I shoot in a fine art, documentary style, directing enough that you have to do none of the work but leaving space for true emotions and candid moments.

I know how important your wedding day is because I myself have been through it! I want to catch each of your messy moments just like the ones that made my own day so great. I’m excited to come alongside you and get to hear more about your story, your journey and witness this beautiful day unfold for you. My husband Evan often assists me, he is also an artist with an incredible eye and we love that we get to witness people coming into a relationship that we so love ourselves!
