I’m Ali, and I’m a love language photographer based in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. I know we haven’t met, but I already give a SO many shits about you and your partner, it’s not even funny! I’m honestly just a chubby bulldog laying at your feet, ready to defend your wildest wedding dreams and capture them as beautifully and as authentically as they happen.
I fell in love with intimate adventure weddings when I was planning my own. My husband and I have a love of adventure, travel, and hiking with our dogs – incorporating those things into our nuptials was the most important thing. Adding family expectations, trendy decor, and the friends we love the most was a delicate balance, but I do not regret a single thing we did. I’ll tell anyone who asks all about my wedding so they can draw as much inspiration from it as they need. I want all of my couples to be able to look back and know in their hearts that they don’t regret anything about their wedding.
One of my favorite things is seeing Northern California through new eyes. There’s a Tahoe shaped stamp on my heart, and I’m always so proud to tell people that it’s where I’m from. As an avid hiker, adventure seeker and windshield warrior, I love finding new places to explore with my couples. There’s something so special about alpine lakes and windy cliffs. These places are truly wild.
You deserve a day that’s unapologetically true to the love story you share. Strip the traditions, the PiNteReSt gOaLs and the bullshit and just show up as who you are to your core. I promise to show up as me, your friend, adventure planner, and bulldog – and I promise to help write the unwritten parts.
I am welcoming of all love stories, including the LGBTQ+ community, all cultures, skin-tones, shapes, sizes, and religious or non-religious folks.
