BAILEY & HAYDEN

"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!!"

ELIZABETH & MATT

"As most little girls do, I had dreamt about my wedding day ever since my childhood friend and I pretended to be brides by using pillow cases as veils and dressing up in our mom’s dresses. From the day we sat down with Ali to discuss our plans, to the actual day of our wedding, she was so in tuned with all the little details. She really listened to what was important to us and captured everything regardless of how big or small the moment. We had the time of our lives on our wedding day and when we look back through our pictures, the emotions we experienced that day become stronger again. Her professional, friendly smile spreads a sense of ease wherever she goes, making us, our families and all our wedding guests feel comfortable and confident. She truly cared about making our day individually special for us. The role that she played in our wedding day was so appreciated and evident to all that my family has already become a repeat client. For someone who as seen and experienced countless weddings, she made us feel like ours was just as uniquely special to her as it was to us."

BONNA & PAUL

"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."

ALYSSA & MATT

"Ali photographed our wedding on July 9th and we could not have chosen a better person to capture the best day of our lives. She is extremely professional, organized and continued to check in with us throughout the course of planning, and as a customer it is something we greatly appreciated. We had the best time working with her, she's so sweet and so kind . Her photos are stunning. Absolutely stunning. Her passion truly shows through her work and her work definitely speaks for itself!! For the brides, I also did a boudoir session with her as a wedding gift for my husband, and it was the best decision I could have made. The way she portrayed me (bride) was so elegant, classy and sexy, it blew my husband away (and ME) away! Amazing. I cannot rave about Ali enough and each and every time we work with her she exceeds expectations. Thank you Ali from the bottom of our hearts, we love you so much and can't wait to work with you again!! <3 <3"

"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!"

RIANA & JEFF

"I could not have picked a better photographer to capture my wedding day on August 20, 2016 at George Eastman Museum and Ridgemont Country Club. Everytime 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."

"Ali has taken pictures of my nephews as infants and as toddlers. She was able to capture multiple stunning photos in a very short amount of time, and she delivered the finished products expeditiously. Ali is professional and extremely talented. I will use her services exclusively because of the quality of the products that she delivers and her friendly, courteous demeanor."

KATIE & MARK

"If I could give more stars I would. Ali was my husband and my photographer for our wedding in August of 2014. She did an amazing job. Besides being incredibly talented, she's sweet, and funny. We had so much fun at our engagement session with her. My husband and I were worried engagement pictures would be awkward - we're not the posing for pics type. But Ali makes it so comfortable and laid back. On our wedding day everything ran so smoothly because of Ali. I have recommended Ali to several friends and they have used her as their wedding photographer as well, and they too can't say enough good things about her. Thanks Ali for doing such an amazing job at capturing the best day of our lives! Your pictures are hanging all over our house! :)"

"Ali is not only an incredible photographer but a delightful person. My family immediately warmed up to her and she was amazing with our baby girl. Her photos were amazing and we look forward to hiring her again in the future. I highly recommend her."

KACIE & STEPHEN

"Ali is PHENOMENAL! When searching for a wedding photographer, there are MANY options (as we all know). When we met with Ali the first time and saw her photographs of previous weddings and engagement sessions, I just knew she would be perfect for us. Her organic, light, natural, and classic way of capturing moments was JUST what I was looking for. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable right off the bat, with easy conversation it seemed as though we had all been friends for years! Our wedding package included engagement shots, which we had scheduled with Ali months before our wedding. When life happened and we were unable to make our shoot, Ali was so flexible and accommodating and easily switched our date (I was so happy we had the opportunity to “practice” taking photos with Ali prior to our wedding day). She made the whole process stress free and was able to capture such beautiful and natural moments between my husband and I. When our wedding day arrived, Ali was again, AMAZING. From getting ready to our final sunset shoot, Ali was professional, helpful, kind, funny, and was able to capture the true emotion of our wedding day. She was the perfect person to have by my side on such a wonderful, stressful, and jam packed day. The photos we received from our wedding are absolutely breathtaking! The way she captures the light with film and each part of the day on her digital camera allow us to relive the day through her images. I would highly recommend Ali for any photography and can’t wait to use her in the future for our family shoots!"

"Ali is truly an amazing person which makes her the best photographer. She really gets to know you not just as a client, but a person; By the end of the photo shoot you feel as if she is not your photographer but part of your family. This shows in her work as you can feel the emotions radiating from her photography. I highly recommend her and I promise you won't be disappointed!"
