Presque Isle Maine Photographer
I enjoy what I do
Photography is not only how I earn a living for my family, but it is also a creative outlet. It is something that I look forward to doing, from the photography shoot to editing and seeing the end products, it is all an enjoyable experience.
I strive to make photoshoots go as seamless as possible, and I do expect the same from my clients because having photos taken is a luxury and it is supposed to be enjoyable.
My process has been fine-tuned since I started working as a photographer and so I have found it to be the best way to operate for many clients each week. If something does not work for you, please let me know and I will try my best to accommodate. As I said in my bio on the home page, I am very laid back and think that flexibility is key to our success here.
Booking Your Session
Thank you for choosing me to be your photographer. I look forward to getting to know you and your loved ones. Booking your session is the easy part, upon sending a message please have the following ready to make for a smooth transaction; 3 dates of availability (unless you’re planning an event) and your retainer fee. The retainer fee is an industry-standard among professional photographers and is to protect our business. This money is non-refundable and is placed to hold the date on my calendar as a commitment on both ends.
Location, Outfits & Planning
I can have as little or as much help in the planning stages as you’d like! I service all of Aroostook County and only charge travel fees after 40 or more miles of travel. I like when clients choose locations that are personal, and important in their lives. A lot of people choose their own property, which I really love because it gives a unique look to every photography session. Feel free to run any outfit ideas by me, I’d love to see what your vision is, and to help where possible. The planning is mostly done via email or Facebook messenger as I am a visual person.
Your photography session day is here! It is best to take a look at travel time to our location ahead of time, and leave with a cushion of time to arrive at least 10 minutes early to put the final touches on your outfits, hair and makeup. This is the day when your final payment will be made either via an invoice or in cash at your session. I prefer that your payment is made prior to our session beginning because that just makes for one less thing to worry about during our shoot so that we can focus on making this experience fun and comfortable for everyone!
Post Processing & Delivery
After your session is over, I return home and load your images to my computer. I select the best images from your session, and I edit them with Photoshop & Lightroom. You can expect to see a sneak peek on my Facebook page within a few days of your session, and the full gallery delivered no later than 3 weeks from your session date. Galleries will come in the form of an online gallery through a website called Pixieset, and a USB gallery which will either be hand-delivered or sent via regular mail. Every session comes with a print release and a generous number of images.
What People are Saying
“We have had family pictures with Ally three times including a puppy shoot. She is incredibly talented, personable and excellent with children! Her prices are very reasonable for the services she provides. We can’t wait to book our next session!”
“Ally was wonderful to work with. I was anxious whether my daughter would cooperate because she’s very nervous around strangers, but Ally’s soft and quiet demeanor put my daughter right at ease and we were able to capture many amazing shots in a short time. Would definitely recommend to a friend!“
“Ally is great to work with, she is so personable. Fast turn around time to get pictures! Her photographs are stunning!!! The prices are great! The locations she finds are beautiful! We have used Ally twice and will not use anyone else to capture our family memories, she is a great asset to northern Maine photography!!”
“Ally is amazing professional photographer! We love all our pictures she has taken for our family and will continue to use her as our photographer in the future!”
“Ally is an excellent photographer and very easy to work with. She was flexible to work with my busy schedule and incredibly talented with her work and she was so good with my girls. Thank you so much!”
“Ally was super sweet and it was so comfortable to work with her. We will definitely have her do our family photos again in the future!!”
“Amazing! From the very start you could see her passion for photography. She talked us through everything she was doing, helped with poses and was such a sweet soul! She truly went above and beyond to capture that special photo. This was all before even seeing the pictures. I have only seen one photo because we just shot with her but it was stunning. The lighting, angle and background were all perfect! I highly recommend her for a photoshoot and my family and I cannot wait to have more work done by her!“
“I would absolutely recommend Bespoke photography! Ally was easy to talk to, and made us feel so comfortable. Her two little helpers also made it easier for my little one to come out of his shell for pictures.
We were blown away by how BEAUTIFULLY our photos turned out. We were so impressed that she was able to capture those natural interactions among one another. We received our pictures very quickly, and at a reasonable price. We will definitely be using her again for future family photos.“
