Hi, I’m Ali! I’ve been “the girl with a camera” for as long as I can remember. After finishing my teaching degree, I decided to follow my dream (if only I had decided to four years earlier!).
Outside of the photos, I’m a wife to my middle school boyfriend, Taylor (who was also my elementary school crush!), mom to a sweet + wild toddler named Lily, and a grumpy face cat, Luna. We live along the St. Croix River with lots of tall pines and boaters. There’s really no other place we’d rather call home!
When we’re not spending a weekend shooting a wedding (rare!) you can find us boating, drinking a Moscow mules (Ali) and beer (Tay) on a patio in the sun, searching for the best Twin Cities’ tacos, reading, or traveling to new cities or roadtripping up to the North Shore.

SOMETIMES I’M BOOKED ON YOUR DATE. WE CAME UP WITH A SOLUTION FOR THAT. EACH PHOTOGRAPHER IS HAND-PICKED & TRAINED IN ALI’S STYLE TO BRING THE ALI LEIGH EXPERIENCE TO MORE PEOPLE EACH YEAR. I’M SURE YOU’LL LOVE THEM JUST AS MUCH AS I DO!
Dog mom to a dog literally named Ali - not after me ;), self-proclaimed foodie. Lexi’s a blast to be around, quick to serve, and will most likely capture you guys laughing.
A transplant from New Jersey with a vibrant personality. On top of photography she plans and styles events and is quite possibly the most creative, driven person you'll ever meet.
Lover of traveling, her high-school sweetheart, animals, and art + design. Small town Minnesota girl planted in the heart of St. Paul. You can't help but smile when you're with her.
Warm hearted, personable, and the sweetest human. Her happiest place is swing dancing with her boyfriend Jon, hanging out with animals, or traveling with friends.
Launched her business when she was literally 14 years old, finds a friend in every room she's in, swim coach, a calm presence, and the queen of capturing raw, emotion-filled moments.
