HI, I'M ALI!
Falling into wedding photography was the happiest accident of my life. In May of 2014, I had a college friend literally beg me to show up and take some photos because she didn't have the budget to hire a professional. After I said "NO" about four times, I finally said "alright fine" and that was the beginning of my insanely undeniable obsession with weddings.
Documenting my first wedding was like finally finding a passion that was the perfect marriage of my creative heart and my analytical mind, my left and right brain. I feel artistically fulfilled capturing a couple's story in a unique way, and also mentally fulfilled using my strengths in problem-solving, time management and attention to detail. I have never done anything that fills me with more purpose and joy than wholeheartedly serving brides and grooms on their wedding day.
When I'm without my camera, I'm usually found reading a fantasy novel, at the dog park with my Aussiedoodle Pippin (yes, that's a LoTR reference), working out at the rock climbing gym, listening to murder podcasts or playing The Sims (nerd alert).
MY FAVORITE THINGS
MY HUSBAND CALEB
My lovely husband Caleb and I have been married for five years, and he is my bestie for life. I'm so lucky to have found such a hot nerd.
MY DOG PIPPIN
I'm *slightly* obsessed with my aussiedoodle Pippin (yes that is a Lord of the Rings reference). He loves to eat Greenies and lick everything that moves.
READING A GREAT BOOK
Give me a page-turner and I'm good to go. I try to read at least one book a month. Harry Potter is my all time favorite! #teamravenclaw
My favorite kind of exercise is exercise that doesn't feel like exercise. Rock climbing is such an exhilarating sport I love doing with my husband!
ALL THINGS TAYLOR SWIFT
Huge Swiftie here! My favorite Taylor songs are All Too Well, Cruel Summer, Dancing With Our Hands Tied and every other song she's written.
Enneagram 5. INTJ. Ravenclaw. I love taking personality tests and then forcing all my friends and family to take them and let me talk at them about it.
