A FEW FUN FACTS

Beach Trip

Hi, I’m Ali!

I married my best friend, Jacob Payne, in June 2018 and we have the cutest fluff-ball of a pup named Rosco. I currently live in Montgomery, AL but I LOVE to travel and see new places! I live for joyful moments, creating memories. . . Chick-Fil-A sauce. . . and my guilty pleasure is how invested I am in the Bachelorette series – YAY MATT JAMES!!!!

Most importantly, you should know that I truly believe that this photography journey and my entire life is a blessing from God. I know He has a plan for me – and for you too. So whatever brought you here to my page today – I really hope it blesses you & that you get to see a little snapshot of my life!

I love meeting new people and I could probably talk your ear off on just about anything. So even if you aren’t interested in my photography services – if I can bless you in any way, PLEASE let me know! I’m always down for a Starbucks trip or a Target run and would love to hear about your life & your goals. Let’s be friends!

THE HEART BEHIND

WHAT I DO

I never felt that I had a calling.

When people asked what I wanted to do after graduation, I never had a great answer. After graduating with a Business Administration degree, I ended up taking a job in a corporate office but still felt like I wasn’t doing what I was supposed to be doing.

Christmas of 2017, I finally found my calling. I picked up my mom’s Canon Rebel T3, like I had done before just to take photos of the family, but this time. . . something changed. For the first time in my life, I had this feeling of: I want to do THIS. I want to take photos. I want to create memories for others. I can only credit this feeling & thought to God, Who answered my prayers when I asked Him time and time again – what AM I supposed to be doing with my life?

Fast-forward to today where I could not imagine photography NOT being a part of my life. I am blessed by the most precious couples, families, seniors, and so on. I am living the dream as a full-time photographer and my heart beats to create timeless memories in a classic, Southern way.
