Yoooo! How’s it hangin? I’m Alley! Your number one hype girl, down to get food & drinks buddy, and adventure girl! I’m all about the feelings and you’ll notice in every photo the emphasis is on YOU – it’s on the emotions, the love, and all the laughs.
We’re going to dive deep into my psyche real quick here: I remember the first time I had professional pictures done of myself. When I got them back I felt like they were so surreal… Like they couldn’t possibly be ME! But the more time that passed the more I accepted that they were. Because of those photos I have grown so much as a person and have fallen so much more in love with myself. I want the same for you. I want you to be able to look back on any wedding, elopement or portrait photos and remember the experience that you had and how you felt in that specific moment. I want you to see your photos and be awe struck and in love all over. I hope that you will become a more confident and courageous person throughout this experience.
I believe that photoshoots don’t have to be for a special occasion or an awful “chore” that you dread. I believe they should be fun and full of memories just frozen in time. This is different from your average photoshoot – it’s an experience. It’s going on a date with the love of your life and capturing all those smoldering looks. It’s doing a boudoir session and feeling truly confident and in love with yourself for maybe the first time ever. It’s laughing, dancing, and doing whatever comes natural to you. Maybe that’s a session involving paint 😉
I bring that “experience” mentality to all of my weddings and Elopements because your big day should be one of the most fun and amazing of your life so far! It should be filled with love, and all the LOLs. Along with that mentality I also bring all the expertise I’ve learned to help you plan your big day to perfection. Whether that’s just recommending services to you or diving deep into permits, communicating with other vendors or so on. I’ve got your back!
I like to think of my style as being natural, real, & timeless with a touch of the surreal. I want you to look back on your photos and remember that favorite t-shirt from 20 years ago that you loved so much you practically never took it off. Basically it’s all in the details ya know? My favorite photos from a shoot are always the ones where you are being your genuine self. They’re not overly posed, but they’re the ones where you’re laughing and dancing and just enjoying the moment right here, right now.
I’m a type 2 enneagram which means I basically want nothing more than to please you and love on you. Be ready for a whole day of “oooo’s” “awwww’s” and “hot damn!” because to me there is nothing more special or amazing in the moment then YOU and your love story. I won’t give up until we have that perfect shot and I will do everything possible to make you feel like the most beautiful and amazing person on this planet. So if you’re ready for a new friend who is only going to see your good side and absolutely dotes on you then let’s do this thing!
- I’m a first generation American – my dad was actually born in Canada, ay!
- I SUCK at learning languages even though I travel out of the country at least once a year. If you’re interested in a destination shoot, let me know 😉
- I’m most definitely an early bird – text me at 6am and I’ll most likely be up!
- Sunrise is my favorite time to shoot! There’s something about the golden hour that just stretches for an eternity!
- I’m OBSESSED with the show “I Love Lucy”! My grandma and I used to watch it all the time and any time I’m missing her I just turn it on!
I’m so excited for the chance to get to know you more and are very stoked for what’s to come! My spirit animal is a golden retriever so chat me up if you’re ready for a new bff.
