Last update: February 2024


I am Ali, a passionate wedding photographer based in Montreal. I believe in capturing the raw emotions and candid moments that unfold on a couple's special day. My objective is to tell the story of the couple's unique love through the lens, showcasing their true personalities in every shot.

I have a keen eye for capturing the joyous smiles, warm embraces, loving gazes, blissful kisses, and infectious laughs that define a wedding day. The end result is a set of authentic memories that truly encapsulate the couple's story.

With years of experience in the industry, I have been honored to be a part of countless love stories in and around the Montreal area, including the Laurentians, Ontario, and Quebec. I have been serving the region since 2012 and I am dedicated to creating timeless and beautiful memories for my clients.

My photography style:

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 !

About me:

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.

Courteous and professional

Not only did Ali respect our wishes, but he also delivered the pictures on time, and with awesome editing and professionalism.
He was very courteous with the guests, and was very flexible and easy to work with.

Talented and dedicated photographer!

I recently had my engagement shoot with photographer Ali, and I have to say I was thoroughly impressed with his work. From start to finish, Ali was incredibly nice, patient, and made me feel very comfortable even though I'm not a fan of taking photos.

What really stood out to me was his dedication to getting the perfect shot. Ali waited with us until sunset just to capture those breathtaking sunset photos, which I appreciated so much. I can't wait to see how the wedding photos turn out because I'm confident they will be amazing.

Overall, I highly recommend Ali for anyone looking for a photographer. He has a great personality, excellent skills, and knows how to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I'm so glad I chose him for my engagement shoot, and I can't wait to work with him again.

Very flexible, great energy, highly recommend

Ali photographed our NYE wedding (which took place between 11pm-12:30am) and he did a wonderful job. We were very rushed, which required him adapt and quickly adjust to a very compressed timeline, but even with those challenges/constraints, he still delivered a number of great photographs. He's very kind, very gracious, very flexible, and he had really great energy (which is important when it comes to a wedding photographer). Highly recommend.

Ali is an absolutely amazing photographer

Ali really did make our day special, right from the beginning there was great communication. He is extremely friendly and easy going on top of his professionalism.
I would one thousand percent recommend him to anyone wanting to book him. His pricing is amazing and we received our final edits really quickly and they were everything and more.
Thank you again Ali for everything you did and being a part of our special day.
David and Shaun.

An Inspired photographer

Ali was a very kind, professional and motivated photographer. We hired him for our wedding. He always knew where to be and had that “eye” for which photos to take and when. He was calm and positive even if it was a little crazy on our end and got the shots he needed, even with no list of photos provided. I have just seen a sneak peak and I am blown away! I am so happy with how the pictures turned out and thought it couldn’t have been any better. HIGHLY recommend!!!

A True Professional that exceeded our expectations!

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!

Ali was a tremendous photographer

It was a truly wonderful experience to work with Ali. I reached out to him on Instagram after having not received responses from a number of other photographers. He replied right away and was very accommodating to the date and time we were looking for. We talked in advance of our wedding and he shared ideas for spots to photograph beyond where we were getting married.

On the day of the wedding, Ali was there before us, began shooting right away, and was overall excellent. His photography did not feel intrusive in anyway, but honestly just added to our really special day.

He was prompt in getting our photos back to us, which are so beautiful and captured all of our happiness. Can't recommend Ali enough!

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