About Ali

67948JBmac505004-R1-005As a fine art wedding, lifestyle, and family photographer in San Diego, California, I love film, pastels, soft light, big smiles, happy tears, rose gold, anything that sparkles, and capturing organic moments and genuine emotion.

But more than anything, I love people’s stories. And if they’re love stories? Even better. Picture the scenes in “When Harry Met Sally” when the older couples argue about how they first met. I could watch those all day.

I live with my husband, Fima, and our dog, Biscuit, in San Diego, and when I’m not behind the camera, I’m a fellow in Hospice and Palliative Medicine. I feel lucky to spend my time witnessing all of the wonderful, emotional, happy, sad, and bittersweet moments in people’s lives. While a beautiful bouquet and perfect details will always make me jump with joy, it’s the real moments of your life that I live to capture. The look in your husband’s eyes when he sees you for the first time. The wink your father gives you from across the room. The laughter and anticipation that fills the room as you get ready with your closest friends. The tears you can’t hold back as you read your vows. Your children running down the beach. You and your family baking as the morning light streams through your kitchen windows.

I’m constantly amazed by how much love there is out there, and I can’t wait to hear more about yours.
