I first met Ali in New York City when finding my wedding dress. She was so genuine and engaging we became fast friends. After following her on Instagram for over a year, I knew if I ever had the opportunity to shoot with Ali that I absolutely HAD TO. Her photography was something that would catch my eye and inspire me! Sometimes I would repost and share without evening realizing it was her. Her photos and aesthetic were so powerful. When we finally got the chance to shoot together she certainly didn’t let me down, in fact, she blew my expectations out of the water! Ali was such a pleasure to work with and I will cherish these photos of my husband and I for the rest of our lives. I can’t wait to shoot together again!
