Ali Payne Montgomery, AL Photographer


Where to start? Weddings are my favorite to capture because it’s so much more than just one day. Partnering with Ali Payne Photography for your wedding is just that – gaining a true partner throughout the entire process. I have photographed too many weddings to count and I’ll give you all of my tips on making the most of your day, I’ll get to know you and your spouse-to-be with fun and dreamy engagement photos, and I’ll create a custom timeline for the big day so that you don’t have to worry about anything except saying ‘I do’.

Olivia + Jon David | Wedding

Olivia + Jon David You can say that the coronavirus pandemic has taken a lot away from 2020. It's caused division, death and destruction in every sense of the word... but the love that these two shared together on this day in May just showed how beautiful something can be during such a fearful time.

Cayla + Hunter | Wedding

Cayla + Hunter When I met these two during their engagement session I already knew this was a couple that exuded JOY. The way these two smile and giggle with one another will truly just warm your heart - also, maybe I'm biased because I'm slightly obsessed with them - but I'm fully convinced that [...]

Katie + Reagan | Wedding

Katie + Reagan I am still not over this beautiful wedding day from July! Everything came together just perfectly for these two. A high percentage chance of rain ALL DAY and it only rained after we were done with portraits - and then stopped again before their sparkler send-off. Talk about some serous good timing! [...]



Send me a quick note on the Contact page and then you’ll find me taking a small ~dance break~ while I read through your inquiry because I am so excited to learn more about you and your spouse-to-be! This is the time to tell me all about how you met, your expectations of me and anything else you think I should know.


This is part where we get to chat face-to-face! If you’re local, we will meet up for coffee at a local shop. Otherwise, we can FaceTime or Zoom or whatever works best for you! For this part, come prepared with any questions you have for me about your big day, working with me, or anything you are wondering about and we will get everything answered.


You officially want to be an Ali Payne bride! After a contract and a deposit, your date will be reserved on my calendar – now the real fun begins! You’ll receive a welcome package from me including a PDF bridal guide that will answer questions you may not have even thought you had.


Apart from the wedding day itself, this is my favorite time spent together. During the engagement session, we will get to know each other more, we’ll laugh so hard you’ll feel like you had a workout, and capture the dreamiest images to remember this special time. Each session is personalized so it is 100% authentic to you and your spouse-to-be.


When your wedding day is about 3 months away, I will send you a questionnaire where you can fill in all the important details of your day. Once this is completed, I’ll review all of the information provided and use it to build a custom photography timeline. This way, you can sit back and relax while I stay on schedule to capture the memories from your special day.


While you’re enjoying your first days together as newlyweds, I will be working hard so that I can deliver your wedding gallery preview only one week after your wedding day. This way, you can come back from the honeymoon and relive the day as husband and wife! Before you know it, it will be one month later and your full gallery will be ready for download!
