ABOUT
ALA CORTEZ

My name is Ala (rhymes with Kayla). I live in Los Angeles with my husband of 6 years, Steven. You can usually find me with a delicious cocktail in my hand, wearing something sparkly. I dream of living in Italy and having a million babies. I laugh loud, I love hard and I eat way too much sugar for my own good. But sometimes I go to the gym so it totally balances out.

I have a degree in graphic design and although I will never tire of my love affair with fonts, my heart truly belongs to photography. I love capturing the beauty in the in-between moments – your deep breaths, your nervous laughs, your messy hair and crooked smile. Warm embraces with your 93-year old grandmother or your first few days with your newborn. All those moments are so special to me and my hope is that I can tell your story through photographs that you’ll look back on for years to come.

I love red wine, online
shopping and sushi. I believe naps fix
everything and I quote Sex and the City
daily. I’m addicted to pilates and prosecco.
So, hello there.
Let’s meet.
