I specialize in capturing the genuine moments and emotions of a wedding day through candid photography. My goal is to showcase the true personalities of the couple in their photos. I do this by capturing the unscripted moments of joy... The smiles, hugs, loving glances, kisses, and laughters as they happen. The result is a set of natural and authentic memories that truly reflect the couple's day.
With years of experience in wedding photography, I have been serving the Montreal area and its surrounding regions such as the Laurentians, Ontario, and Quebec since 2012.

My approach to wedding photography is primarily rooted in the photojournalistic style, which aims to capture the day's events as they unfold in a candid and natural manner. I use backlighting and foregrounds to add depth to my photos and create a dreamy feel to them.
I sometimes use crystals in front of the camera lens to add prism-like effects and a touch of magic to the images. Guests come up to me sometimes to ask what that big piece of crystal is about !
I'm always on my feet, moving around, and searching for the perfect angle, lighting, and composition. I combine traditional wedding photography techniques with a photojournalistic style to create a final product that is both breautiful and storytelling.

With a background in English Literature, I have a keen eye for poetry and aesthetics. I started this journey with the missions to tell people's story in a new and captivating form. I have a personalized approach to each wedding, interacting with the couple to understand their needs at every moment.
I also enjoy passing on my knowledge and skills to others, particularly to my teenage daughter, whom I teach photography.
Ali finds the beauty all around us! He is very kind, easygoing and flexible. We are not used to being in front of the camera, and he made us feel comfortable immediately. He is creative, talented and knows how to create special moments in everyday life. We were blown away with the quality of his pictures and his ability to capture all of the natural, candid moments. He is a true professional that we highly recommend!

Our friends hired him for their wedding, which fell through during COVID. Although it fell through, we took the opportunity to reach out to Ali. Best decision yet! Just from the sneak peak, the pictures are INCREDIBLE! We cannot wait to see more!!! His relaxed demeanour and his attention to detail was all we needed to add to our vision for our big day! He also took the time to listen to things we wanted and to respond to anything photography related. Plus, both our families asked him to capture some pictures and he did just that without a complaint! You will not regret your decision!!!!! Hire him!

We would be delighted to work with Ali again in future.
