About Ali


 

AboutAliHello! I’m Ali,
and I take photographs.

Originally from the Midwest, I now reside in the beautiful city of Birmingham, Alabama where the air is thick with y’alls and the tea is extra sweet. I have a wonderful husband named Caleb and an imaginary Yorkie, which will hopefully one day be real.

I’ve loved photography ever since my tool bag consisted of Walgreens disposable cameras and a makeshift tripod created from an old music stand. Over the years, my cameras have matured as well as my craft.

I’m a self-taught photographer who is introverted (so I know how to work with the camera shy) and very tall (no risk of unattractive angles with my 5’11” vantage point).

I’ve pursued many art forms during my 25 years on this earth including oil painting and clarinet, but photography is the only one that developed into an undeniable passion.

Above all else, photography is a means for me to reflect the creativity of the original Creator. I strive to honor God through capturing the beauty of His world; not only the physical beauty, but the vibrancy, personality and love present in my couples as well.
