Allison Patel Photography is not a studio-based company. I come to you, either to your home or to a location of your choice, and spend time with you and your family in an environment where you feel comfortable enough to be yourselves. Whether you’re looking for a formal family portrait to hang over your mantle or an album to celebrate a milestone in your lives, I will be there every step of the way to help guide you through the process. From booking your session to printing your images, please don’t hesitate to ask questions if anything is unclear or if you need help making a decision.

The signed Photographer/Client Agreement and session fee of $450 are due at the time of booking as a spot holder to secure your appointment. Full payment for any products ordered (gift prints, canvas wrap prints, albums, etc) is due at the ordering session, typically scheduled two weeks after your photo shoot. I currently accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards.

The photographs produced by Allison Patel Photography are protected by Federal Copyright Law (all rights reserved) and may not be reproduced in any manner without my explicitly written permission. Upon final payment, you will have limited copyright ownership of the resulting images which may be used only for personal use, which includes personal blogs, sites and social networks. You will need to obtain written permission from me prior to publishing or selling my images for profit.

I am available for worldwide travel, contact me for a custom travel quote outside of the Richmond area.

The Allison Patel Photography Manifesto:

Life is full of joy and laughter and love, and feels like wrapping up in a blanket fresh from the dryer.

I capture priceless moments for people who cherish genuine images of life.

I believe in the quality of the client experience, from beginning to end.

I believe that memories should hang on the wall, not on the desktop.

I aim for a client experience that is easy, fun and unforgettable, by valuing open, honest communication and feedback.
