I’m Ali from Alisandra Photography. I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Williamsburg, Virginia. My husband Chad and I moved here four years ago and have loved living in Hampton Roads. We both love the relaxed culture of the tidewater region and are always taking advantage of what we have at our fingertips.

When I’m not shooting weddings or traveling, we’re standup paddle boarding along the James River, playing in the waves at Virginia Beach, or taking a stroll along DoG street in Colonial Williamsburg. I feel so blessed getting to live and work in such a history-rich and picturesque town!

THE PHOTOGRAPHER

• get to know •

As for my journey in photography, I entered the wedding industry in 2006.  Since then, I've had the honor and privilege of meeting so many amazing couples and documenting their love stories across the East Coast. 

GET TO KNOW
ALI WILLIAMSON

Getting to meet amazing clients and documenting their love is my favorite part of my job, and I view it as an honor and a gift, just as I view marriage itself!

and I can sincerely assure you that I love a classic vineyard wedding equally as much as a relaxed seaside affair.

With this much time in the industry, I've seen the full gamut...

I didn’t always know I was going to be a  photographer. It was just a hobby and side gig in college, but I knew I wanted a job that I could do anywhere, be creative, and serve people. 

As a wedding photographer, I desire to provide my couples with gorgeous images that will be cherished for generations and an experience that allows you to relax and soak in the romance of the day.

Your wedding day and this season of engagement are the beginnings of a lifetime together, and I can't wait to celebrate that with you!

MY HUSBAND CHAD

i've never met an island i didn't like, but the aloha spirit has my heart. i've been so many times i've lost count and are always planning our next trip. 

i'm energized and inspired by the slow pace of life, the scenery, and the food! pog juice and poke, anyone?

HAWAII

there are glimpses of God everywhere, but we live in a broken world in need of saving.

 i’m a follower of Jesus Christ because i believe that through his death and resurrection, He has the power to redeem the world. these truths impact every area of my life!

JESUS CHRIST

i've spent countless summers vacationing in Charleston, and this year my parents built a home in the lowcountry.

i am looking forward to the memories we'll make in their new home and city.

...anyone up for a session surrounded by the southern haze and spanish moss?

CHARLESTON, SC

i don’t consider myself a foodie. that would imply standards. i love all food:
quick, casual, and fancy.

friendships grow over a meal, it’s not a party unless there’s snacks, and if you don’t want it, i’ll eat it.

FOOD

printed products, bound or framed, are a timeless tradition i hope never dies.

i remember paging through my parent's album as a child. the glimpse into their young love
and my family history inspire me to be a better wife and photographer.
