Hi, I'm Ali.

I'm a full-time photographer and dance instructor from Lincoln, Nebraska. My itch for travel has made me an international photographer shooting not only weddings, but portraits as well; dancers being a personal favorite. I drink too much coffee, dance in my pajamas, and love experiencing new places. I live with my dreamy husband, Nakemm, and two fur babies, Mucha and Bron. A few of my secrets for a great day include iced coffee, rap music, and a moment to dance a little (even if it’s just in the kitchen doing dishes). In 2011 I discovered my love for taking photos. It was love at first click. I couldn't put the camera down and have photographed thousands of people since. My passion is for people and I believe we were put on this earth to serve others, so that’s what I strive to do, one photo at a time.
