"CHOOSING ALI TO PHOTOGRAPH OUR WEDDING WAS EASILY THE BEST DECISION WE MADE!"
"Choosing Ali to photograph our wedding was easily the best decision we made! Not only is her photography absolutely stunning, but she was a dream to work with. From pre-wedding phone calls to plan our timeline and details, to coordinating with our other vendors, we never had to worry about a thing. The day of our wedding she kept us laughing and made sure we had a few moments to ourselves, which looking back, were our favorite parts of the day. And the photos- just amazing. There are so many emotions that I will forever be able to relive because they were captured so clearly. Ali, I can't thank you enough for being such a wonderful part of our wedding day!"

"ALI IS A MYSTICAL UNICORN! SHE'S A DAMN PHOTOGRAPHIC MAGICIAN!"
"You guys... Ali is a mystical unicorn! She's a damn photographic magician! Sitting in art class back in 2008 with Ali looking at her photos, I just knew she was going to do epic things with her talent. We talked of her photographing my wedding years before I was even engaged. My engagement photos were amazing! My wedding photos!? STUNNING!! She really takes the time to dig deep and "get" her couples to make them feel as comfortable as possible. She was such a big part of our entire wedding planning journey! Any question I had for her or opinion on colors or styles of details she was more than willing and EXCITED to help me out! Booking her for our engagement photos really helped break the ice with Hayden and made him feel so comfortable on the wedding day! She was basically my wedding planner on the day of the wedding. She took an hour of her time the week prior, to call me and plan out the entire day down to the minute to make sure everything went as smooth as possible and made sure she squeezed every last detail out of me so she was prepared to kick some ass on the wedding day. She's posted multiple blog posts about TRUSTING your photographer and there is no one I could have trusted more to capture the best day of our life for us. She laughed with us, cried with us, kindly pushed people out of the way for the perfect cake cutting photo and just plain ROCKED it!! I can't thank her enough for the amaZing photos that will help us relive our favorite day each time we look at them and so look forward to her photographing every next chapter that unravels for us!!"

"IN ALL OF HER PHOTOS SHE CAPTURES NOT ONLY A PRECIOUS MOMENT, BUT ALSO THE RAW EMOTIONS THAT ARE PRESENT IN THAT INSTANCE."
"I love Alexandra's photography. As someone who hates having their photos taken I have never felt more relaxed or beautiful then when photographed by her. In all of her photos she captures not only a precious moment but also the raw emotions that are present in that instance.
My husband and I recently got married in upstate NY and can't rave enough about her work. She encourages you to simply act natural, tell each other jokes and just walk and talk to each other. Our wedding in NY was near Lake Ontario. She took us right down onto the beach to get pictures in the sand with the striking blue water behind. They are some of the most magical photos from our special day.
After my wedding I moved to California and she called me up asking if we could do another shoot in Joshua Tree in my wedding dress. She trekked off the trail into the shrubs and sand, climbing rocks all to get the perfect photos. I almost didn't believe it was me in the photos when I saw them. She had used the soft natural light from the sunset to result in photos where the background was as much a focus as me, blending my love for the park and my dress. Every photo she takes makes you feel as though you're a model for a magazine.
I recommend her to everyone and I will certainly be using her as my photographer for any other memorable moments that lie ahead in my future."

"Ali is a phenomenal photographer and an incredible person to work with. Her pictures are breathtaking; she really captures your love story and your vision for the day. She is professional, friendly and passionate about what she does. Ali makes you feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera so that she is able to capture your special moments. We just got our pictures back and they are stunning! I honestly can’t say enough great things about Ali. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer- she is absolutely amazing!"

"FIVE STARTS IS SIMPLY NOT ENOUGH!"
"Five stars is simply not enough! Ali is wonderful, kind, responsive, professional and SUPER talented. She made us feel so comfortable the whole time and the outputs reflect that! We're so happy we chose her to capture our day and to have photos that are both gorgeous and timeless. A common response from our friends and families was that every photo looked like it belonged in a magazine. Would absolutely recommend!"

"WE WERE ABLE TO BE OURSELVES AND ENJOY EVERY SINGLE MOMENT OF THE DAY."
"Ali was absolutely amazing for our wedding and we could not be happier with all of the images we received from the engagement shoot and wedding. During the engagement shoot, she took the time to get to know us so that for the wedding day, there was no awkwardness and most importantly, no question as to whether or not she would be able to capture the moments most important to us. We were able to be ourselves and enjoy every single moment of the day. Multiple guests commented on how she was never in the way or blocking people's views - almost like she wasn't even there - which is very hard to understand because all of the shots are right in the moment (and stunning), she didn't miss anything! The ability to do that takes true talent.
Photographs are one of the only things you can physically hold in your hand after one of the best days of your life has passed to help relive all of the amazing memories - you absolutely cannot go wrong with choosing Ali to capture those moments and emotions. She's the best!"

"SHE WILL BE OUR PHOTOGRAPHER FOR LIFE! "
"There are so many wonderful things to be said about Alexandra Elise Photography! I contacted her and she replied immediately and has been the easiest and most friendly person to work with. My fiancé and I knew that with her bright, bubbly personality, that she would be the photographer for us. She will be our photographer for LIFE! As a business owner myself, it is important to choose someone who has the same work ethic and customer service that you aim to provide and Ali makes me want to be a better business owner! You can tell just from meeting her and her communication that she is super organized and more importantly has a PASSION for what she does. She has an impeccable eye for detail and such a fresh style that she is hard to beat trying to find other wedding photographers in the Western New York area. She has made a lasting impact on our tiny little family so far just by making the two of us feel so special during such an exciting time in our lives. I really can't say enough good things about her. Keep killin it, Ali!"

"EVERY TIME I LOOK AT THE PHOTOS THAT ALI TOOK, I FALL IN LOVE WITH THEM EVEN MORE."
"I could not have picked a better photographer to capture my wedding day. Every time I look at the photos that Ali took, I fall in love with them even more. She did such an amazing job at photographing every moment so that I can relive my wedding day for many years to come.
Ali is such a pleasure to work with - so organized and on top of things. I could tell from my first interaction with her that she was a professional experienced photographer. I am a bit of a control freak and had to be extremely involved in every aspect of my wedding planning EXCEPT for the photography. I trusted Ali to do an amazing job and she absolutely did!
The quality of her work is outstanding - she photographs a lot with film which I absolutely love! The photos look so organic. Her photography style is unique in that she makes every photo look so effortless.
My husband and I did an engagement session with Ali before our wedding too which was a great opportunity to get to know Ali before our wedding day and made us feel a lot more comfortable about posing and taking photos at our wedding. Also, she delivered all of our photos, edited, and the USB in less than 3 weeks after our wedding! That is the fastest turnaround I have ever seen! And her packaging is so cute!
I would highly recommend Ali to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding, engagement session, family photos, or really anything! She does it all! I can't wait to work with her again."
