honest storytelling

as unique as you are

No matter what size, planning a wedding is expensive. I know that, and I’ve been through it. In my opinion, photography should always be among your biggest investments when it comes to budgeting your day. Other than your marriage certificate, your wedding photos are going to be the only physical thing you’ll have to look back on. Trusting someone to capture your memories for you is a big, scary step in the planning process, and I swear on my dog's lives I'll do everything in my power to do it right.

I am absolutely not just showing up and taking photos. I'll run back to the place you got ready to grab your veil before the ceremony. I'll come armed with hot tea for you on an unexpectedly cold day. I'll rearrange the timeline with other vendors so we don't miss something important. I'll literally do anything you ask of me, and lots of things you don't ask of me.


Additionally, Smoke & Mirrors are not that chill, and not knowing how much a wedding vendor costs is really frustrating from a couple's perspective. I put my full pricing directly on my website, out in the open so you don't have to dig or inquire to know what my services cost. I do have an optional list of al-a-carte items that I will send to you when you inquire, And we WILL absolutely make a unique package just for you, but! I want you to know that the pricing here is exactly what you can expect. There are no hidden fees or unexplained extras. This is it, babyyyyy.

Elopements are an incredible way to tie the knot in a beautiful place without limits. They're, in my opinion, the most fearless way to marry your forever person. This is the time to get your feet dirty and flip the bird at tradition. Finding the perfect spot, matching you with other capable vendors, and helping make your dreams come true is my bread + butter. Just because your guest list is small, doesn't mean the details and the day have to be.

I had a micro-wedding and I don't regret a single thing. The way Marcus + I tied the knot was the most magical, yet inclusive day we could've possibly planned and it was perfect in every way. We had our dogs, our parents and our absolute best friends there and we did everything exactly as we wanted to. If you want this experience, I will put my entire soul into helping you achieve an unforgettable day without regrets, Micro-weddings are my SHIT and getting creative with them is the entire reason I'm a love story photographer. This package is like a happy little hybrid between my other two packages and it is shamelessly my favorite one to recommend.

"Ali went above and beyond to make sure that our day was special"

"It's hard to put into words how incredible Ali is! She's an insanely talented photographer and also an incredibly kind and cool person. We loved getting to know her and feel so lucky that she was there to capture our wedding day.
We had to cancel our original wedding plans due to Covid and Ali was so helpful and supportive as we figured out our plan B. She helped us scope out new locations, suggested vendors, and on the actual day she helped a ton by making sure that everything ran smoothly. She was so game to just jump in and help wherever she could.
Ali went above and beyond to make sure that our day was special and to make us feel comfortable. My husband and I had never had professional photos done but Ali made it all so easy and fun! Our photos turned out beautifully and we'll cherish them forever. We can't recommend Ali Boundy enough!"
