You can consider me your fearless photographer/ professional third wheel/ new friend (if I'm lucky)!

Hi! I'm Aly


Originally from Vancouver, I moved to Victoria for university 10 years ago and never looked back. The friendships and community I’ve built for myself in this quiet corner of the world have shaped me into the person I am today — a fiercely creative and playful gal, with a flair for goofball-ery (that’s a word right?).

The most frequent compliment I get from people I've photographed is about how great I made them feel during the shoot. My love of hosting (meals for friends, birthday gatherings, etc.) really comes through in my photography style, as I love to make sure everyone is having the best time. I truly believe that feeling great during the shoot is the number one factor in making great photos. 

It's me - Al your pal

My photography style is centered around experience

Your experience

If you're not enjoying yourself while we're taking photos, it's going to show later. That's why I make it my mission to make sure you're feeling confident and comfortable.

How do I do this? Lots of preparation and research happens beforehand. I want to know YOU! Who you are, what you love, and what makes you laugh. That way I can cater my photography to your uniqueness. 

At weddings I like to consider myself a 'Candid Photo Ninja'. I often get complimented on how well I can blend into the wedding day. This means you can enjoy the day properly, without feeling like there's always a camera pointed at you.

Some 'Candid photo ninja' moments -

Aly made us feel so comfortable and she ended up feeling more like a guest to us.

She is such a warm and happy person. I am beyond grateful that we chose Aly to photograph our special day, and SO thrilled about how the photos turned out.

I’ve worked with a lot of photographers over the years,

but always finish the shoot feeling like I’ve only scratched the surface of my personality. From my first chat with Aly, it was clear she could deliver a different experience.

Content Planning Company

We had the absolute best time ever with Aly!

She had a million great ideas for poses and locations. Absolutely stellar direction that really captured the candid feel we were hoping for and she perfectly captured our goofy, loving relationship exactly as it is.

Courtney + Elaine

Working with Aly was an incredible experience -

she is unbelievably talented and she had an amazing ability to put my entire camera shy family at ease and laughing through the whole shoot.

Ullrich Family

Aly is a true professional, and so very good at what she does!

It was a pleasure to work with someone who is skilled, attentive to details, and also flexible in working with a large group of people.


Aly's photos are BEAUTIFUL and working with her is truly a breeze.

 I have worked with Aly a few times now and will continue to do so in the future. I can simply provide Aly with my vision/idea and she is able to execute it beyond what I could imagine.


We're a great fit if:

  1. You want to love your photos not just when you receive them, but also on your 50th anniversary.  Photography trends are a no-go for me! What's fleetingly popular now might make for regrets later.
  2. You don't hold back your emotions. I'm not one for soft, composed smiles. I love BIG laughs, BIG tears and all the emotions in between. I want you to look back on your photos and feel what you felt in that moment. 
  3. Your wedding day is about being with your loved ones and having a great time above all else. I do like photographing decor and details, but nothing lights me up more than photographing connection. Whether that's between you and your partner, or your parent, grandparent, sibling, friend, neighbour and so on.
