MEET ALI BONOMO
I’m full of simple honesty with mid-west charm. I believe there are never enough laughs, friends, and wine. I’m an absolutely hopeless romantic- in my mind, I am Nicholas Sparks lead character. I am passionate about animals & have the heart of a vegan, notice I said HEART because let’s be honest- a world without bacon?! I feel that hunger IS an emotion. I see the good in everything, which can be a flaw, but I’m alright with that. Goofball by day, wine drinking sunset watcher by night. Anything that comes out of Brandi Carlile and Stevie Nick’s mouths is literally music to my ears- they can do no wrong.
Connecting well with people is an understatement- much like my dog, I will assume I am new best friends with anyone I meet. Pretty much, I’m an open book and will literally tell you anything you would like to know.
My family is an extension of me. They aren’t just a part of my life, but they are the reason I am who I am. If they are my limbs, then my boyfriend is the one who holds my feet to the ground. Collectively the people in my life are the most important thing to me and influence me as a person and a photographer.
I believe that photos are stories and I love being able to tell people’s stories. If you are looking for Pleasantville family photos with cardigans and pastels- I’m probably not the photographer for you. If you want an experience to capture moments in your life with emotion and fun then I’m PERFECT!!

WHAT CLIENTS ARE RAVING ABOUT
My husband and I could not be happier that Ali was our wedding day photographer. She’s incredibly easy going, accommodating, creative and enthusiastic. It is really awesome being on the other end of her camera, because her passion for photography comes through. You can tell that she loves what she is doing and is having fun. Our pictures have so many genuine smiles because our experience was just a blast. The quality of the photos is unreal. I felt like I was straight out of a magazine as I was looking at them. I can’t rave enough about Ali and her talent. I would recommend her a thousand times over!
I wish I could carry Ali in my pocket. She made our shoot day fun and easy, while making me feel comfortable and beautiful. I sent her a spread of shots to express what I wanted the shoot to look like and she made sure we got every single shot, and then got the edited photos back to me so quickly! She’s a gem and I’d fly her to all of my shoots and events if I could.
Ali is an absolute delight to work with from start to finish. I love how natural it was working with her… I never felt like I was posing for a photo but rather that she was able to capture some really special moments that I couldn’t pose for if I tried. She has a way about her that makes you feel comfortable and at home. To top it all of, she’s organized and friendly. I would recommend Ali to anybody who values authenticity and is looking for somebody special to capture their special moments.”
Ali is the BEST photographer I have ever met!!! (and probably the best photographer I will ever meet!) Not only is she funny and kind, she makes you feel comfortable with taking pictures immediately. Ali shot both my engagement photos and wedding photos and I am beyond happy she was our photographer. She captured our personalities in the pictures perfectly. Every time I look back at her pictures I am transported back to the days she took them. She is magical!
Not only is Ali a phenomenal photographer with amazing talent, she is the sweetest person you’ll ever met. Since she traveled for both photo shoots we had to work together remotely. This was an absolutely breeze! She made everything so easy and simple – I never had to worry. She even sent us sneak peeks of our pictures the SAME DAY!
Anyone out there looking for a photographer, for any occasion, just look at her work – it speaks for itself. I can’t say enough about Ali, my husband and I both love her to pieces! I will forever highly recommend her to everyone!
