If you have made it to this page, you are likely engaged and planning a wedding! Congratulations! Best wishes! It probably seems surreal, but it’s your turn, your day, and I am honored that you are considering having me be a part of it. On a wedding day, your wedding day, I promise to be much more than a photographer. I will be a dress fluffer, a bouquet holder, a boutonniere fastener, a makeup blotter, and an overall cheerleader.
Is excited to start a lifelong legacy with her groom. The wedding day is only the beginning.
Can't wait to celebrate with her closest friends and family because they are who molded her into the person she is today.
Knows that marriage is the true gift that comes from a wedding day. But a party and champagne toast is never a bad way to celebrate!
I meet with each of my couples for a pre-wedding consultation where we review all the details of your upcoming wedding day. We will craft a timeline, go over colors, family formals, and take note of any special occurrences, heirlooms, or traditions that will take place on your wedding day to make sure we are serving you to the best of our ability.
Time to choose a location, time, and dare I say theme for your engagement session! I encourage all my couples to choose a location that is representative of them and their love, like a place that you enjoy together or the place that you first met!
A few administrative tasks happen at this point—proposal acceptance, contract signing, and retainer payment—then we are official and your date is saved with ARHP!
I want to hear all about the day you have in mind for your wedding…give me all the details! The purpose of this meeting is to get to know one another and be sure we are a good fit for your wedding day!
The planning is complete, and it is your day to say, “I do,” to your fiancée. Using the timeline we have crafted together, we will make sure your wedding day goes smoothly, while capturing all of the big moments and even some of those sweet, sentimental in-betweens. Time to celebrate!
Katelyn & Josh, The Barn at Turkey Ridge
"...which is saying something, as we had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID-19, and she was still able to capture it beautifully even while 37 weeks pregnant. She is simply the best - from her consultations and thorough follow-up to her speed in delivering beautiful photos of our special day. We are so thankful for her team in capturing our wedding day."

"Not only is her work excellent, but her heart is warm and open. Being around her makes you feel like you're hanging with an old friend! My wedding was large and had a lot of moving pieces, but Ali was there every step of the way and never complained even once. It was a sweltering hot summer day, we were all sweating and drained, but she kept the energy of my husband and I (including our entire wedding party) up the whole time. You can't even tell it was almost 100 degrees in the pictures. This is a testament to her amazing skills. I mean I could seriously go on and on because this lady is seriously one-of-a-kind. One of the sweetest people I've ever met. Do yourself a favor and BOOK HER. She'll listen to your needs and ensure that the memories of your day are sealed in the most beautiful way possible. We love you Ali!"
