BECAUSE LOVE, LIKE THE OCEAN, 
IS UNCHANGING BUT NEVER THE SAME. 
IT IS ALL CONSUMING, YET LIFE-GIVING.
 I CAN’T WAIT TO TELL YOUR STORY.

Love, like the ocean, shapes all who come in contact with it. It is unchanging yet never the same.  Above our heads and overwhelming, but  life-giving.  Photographing weddings, the great declaration of this love, is an honor, and I can’t wait to tell your story.

All my life, I’ve wanted to move somewhere coastal and south. A huge part of my heart beats for the sand and the sea and for the culture of the coast. But I am a Virginia girl at heart. After all, I was born and raised on the Potomac and educated in The Valley. I fell in love in Virginia with a boy from Virginia. We got married in Virginia, and now we live in the heart of Virginia where I photograph weddings all over the state.  I love a classy vineyard wedding in

Charlottesville as much as a relaxed ocean side wedding in Virginia Beach. I’ve been shooting weddings since 2006 when I started in the industry as a second shooter. When I began my business in 2010, I had 4 years of experience and a year of photography school under my belt. Since then, I’ve had the privilege of meeting amazing couples and documenting their love. I view my job as an honor and a gift, just as I view marriage itself!

HI, THERE!

I believe in the truth of the good news of Jesus Christ.

I believe marriage is 100% self sacrifice by each person “until one of us shall lay the other in the arms of God.”

I believe in J.Crew gift cards as a legitimate form of payment.

I’d rather have my toes in the sand than any of my 50 pairs of shoes.

I’d take Charleston, SC over Paris, France any day.

I believe in hand written notes written in cursive.

WEDDINGS

The foundation of the relationship between me and my clients starts with admiration and trust. Do you connect with my images? I sure hope so. But in order to make pretty pictures, we have to have a relationship built on trust. From inquiry to delivery, you’ll be placing your trust in me to make not only great images but to help you feel relaxed, cared for, and confident in the photography process.

I approach a wedding day having put a lot of work in on the front end. We’ll get to know each other during the engagement session. We’ll design the timeline to help your wedding day flow in such a way that allows you to relax and soak up time with your guests. And I’ll be a sounding board for any of your ideas as you plan.

By the time your wedding day comes around, we are both aware of the roles I’ll play. I’ll know when I’m supposed to step back into the background, and when I’ll need to instruct. My goal is to keep your day relaxed, with the candid, real moments in the spotlight. You should have confidence that your wedding day will be the best day ever!

BRITTANY & MATT

ALI IS THE MOST EASY GOING PERSON TO WORK WITH.

She brings a calming and professional energy that brings excitement but made me feel like I was in great hands!

HER STAFF BROUGHT THE SAME ENERGY. I USED HER FOR BOTH ENGAGEMENT & WEDDING PHOTOS, AND WE COULDN'T BE MORE

pleased with everything she brings creatively.

TRULY A BEAUTIFUL PERSON INSIDE AND OUT,
AND IT TRANSLATES RIGHT INTO HER SKILLS AS A PHOTOGRAPHER.

MICKEY & EDDIE

Ali went from being our wedding photographer to our friend.

SHE WAS A JOY TO WORK WITH AND SO EASY GOING.

Her love for her work, the lord and her clients is truly evident once you start working with her.

SHE EVEN GOT IN THE WATER ON OUR WEDDING DAY TO CAPTURE PHOTOS. THE GROOM AND I TURNED AROUND AND HE SAID, "BABE, SHE IS IN THE WATER." THAT IS WHAT I CALL DEDICATION TO YOUR WORK.

KATIE & ANDREW

the best decision we made.

ALI IS SO FUN AND EASY TO WORK WITH, WE FOUND OURSELVES JUST ENJOYING OUR BIG DAY WITHOUT FEELING LIKE THERE WAS SOMEONE EVEN THERE TAKING PICTURES. 

The photos from the wedding are absolutely fantastic ...

THEY PUT A SMILE ON OUR FACES EVERY TIME WE LOOK AT THEM.

PICKING ALISANDRA PHOTOGRAPHY TO SHOOT OUR WEDDING WAS EASILY
