I was born and raised in Portland, OR and have had a camera in my hand for about half of my life at this point. Photography started as an interest in middle school, and flourished into a passion by the time I was out of high school. It is a gift that allows me to capture a bit of beauty for the people I work with, and deliver it as a piece of a memory that will last for a lifetime.

I started to really get into my groove with photography in 2016, working for a brand that had me shooting in city streets all down the west coast, usually in the dead of night, lit only by street lights and neon signs. Since then, I have spent most of my time behind a camera photographing weddings, couples, and families, as well as a bit of lifestyle and product photography on the side. I have developed a moody/dramatic, but true to life style that will add a distinct and unique look to the final images I deliver to my clients.

I have a propensity for finding the moments within a session that really make you feel something. I don’t provide solely posed and perfect images, I lean toward the candid and hidden moments, the moments between the moments… A piece of the individual magic that makes up each and every one of my clients.

I would love the opportunity to work with you, your family, your spouse (or spouse to be), your company, your brand…. or just you. Let’s create something together.


“Where to begin… saw Alijah photograph some kids and I admired how he brought their personalities out and captured it. I have seen some of his other work so def made a note in my mind! I loved that you can just feel through the photos. Not everyone is able to capture love and someone’s energy but Alijah has that gift.”

“I’m not someone who loves being photographed or feels I photograph well but let me just say, Alijah is a magic. My FAVORITE (and really only) photos I truly love of myself were all taken by Alijah.
I’ve worked with Alijah multiple times both as a fellow photographer and as a “model”. His work is exceptional, his calm demeanor always makes for an amazing session and phenomenal final images. He truly captures YOU, the mood, and gives you a memory frozen in time. I love working with Alijah and always will.”

“You totally captured our family! Thank you so much Alijah!!”

“Alijah helped our wedding day go as smoothly as it could after some difficult things happened with our vehicle and items. He helped try to calm us down and was so kind and caring. Thank you for helping make our day special.”

“We really enjoyed our time with Alijah. We will definitely work with him again!”

“Alijah was incredible and met the needs of our family shoot. On time. Personable. Can't wait to see the final shots. Would definitely book him again!”

“Alijah was great!!! Super easy to work with and listened carefully and gave great advice. I will certainly request him again.”
