I live in Reno, Nevada but I am servin' up hot ass pics to all of Lake Tahoe + Northern California. I also LOVE to travel for my couples.
I will edit out blemishes, distractions in the background, and small things, but I don't do retouching in Photoshop. I capture the real shit, not the fake shit. I want you to look like yourself in the photos I deliver.
No, I do not give out raw, unedited images. My editing style and attention to detail is a huge part of my art. You deserve the full experience and RAW images are not a part of that.
I don't guarantee a set number, because it deeply depends on the events of the day. However, I typically deliver a minimum of 50 edited images for every hour of coverage.
The show must go on, folks. I'm a ride or die, rain or shine photographer unless it's so horrible out we can't have the full experience. If that's the case, we'll pivot to a better plan together.
I have a handy dandy online system that is set up the second you inquire with me. Through that system, I make invoices and contracts and payments can be made online. I require a $500 deposit and I set up multiple payments throughout our time planning together. The full amount must be paid 2 weeks before the wedding.
Baby, you can wear anything you want! As long as you feel confident and happy in it. I can help you pick an awesome outfit, and I even send a little guide to answer FAQ's too.
I would have to literally be on my actual death bed to miss your wedding, but in the events that happens, I have a talented handful of professional photographer allies who would come to your wedding in my place. I would hire the one who fits the job the best and when it was over, they would deliver the memory cards to my death bed and I would edit all the photos with my style and my last dying breath.
YOU. ARE. SAFE. HERE. I love you, I want to learn about you, and I want to support you. I'm a ride or die for everybody.
My ideal couple doesn’t look a certain way, or act a certain way. My ideal couple is simply in love and deeply kind.
For 1 hour Adventure Shoots: 5 weeks For Elopements & Weddings: 9 weeks
Listen, I operate as a human first no matter what. I want to do everything I can to shoot your wedding/elopement and I don't care what it takes. I just ask for full communication when it comes to the rescheduling process so I can make sure I'm available for the new date/location. If you have to cancel your wedding altogether, I would hang onto the $500 retainer and refund you whatever you paid outside of that amount.
I am good, and I mean painfully good at internet research and scouting. I will be there, just a text or an email or a FaceTime away for the entire planning process. I want to be the one you call to vent to when you need it, but also be a reliable resource throughout the planning! I've got hella advice.
West Coast (outside of Tahoe region): $800
For the Midwest + East Coast + beyond: $1,300
For international travel: Let's chat about it! I REALLY want to create with you abroad!
When I first started wedding photography, my then fiance Marcus, helped me with weddings on the weekends. Then in 2020, I was able to take on the entire business solo. I love my husband so much for sacrificing his sanity and free time every weekend for months – I truly wouldn't be where I am without him. At the start of 2021, I completely rebranded the business with just my name - Ali Boundy. And here we are!
I’ve been a full-time, professional photographer since 2018!
I typically stick to love stories & couples, but I'll occasionally take on most projects outside of them if I have the space on the calendar. Reach out anyway and if I can't make it work, I'll be sure to refer you to the best of the best instead.
The reason I offer a complimentary engagement session in my larger wedding packages is because I want you to get a feel for shooting with me prior to your wedding day. I want you to be comfortable shooting with me and I want to bond with you behind the camera. Repurposing the shoot toward something else or forgoing it for a discount would defeat the purpose of the offer, so it's a take it or lose it situation.
An elopement is an intentional day that revolves around the two of you and has less than 10 guests in attendance.
While I do help quite a bit outside of my photography scope, I am not a wedding planner. The planning assistance I offer is nowhere near as detailed as the work of a planner or day-of coordinator. Planners help balance ALL of your vendors, while I just make recommendations based off of my photography knowledge. If I'm not working on the timeline or planning directly with you, I'd work directly with them. In most instances, I definitely recommend one, but if you're unsure, let's chat about it!
