Miss USA came home from one of the biggest events in beauty; the Miss USA Pageant held in Reno, Nevada! I got the amazing opportunity to shoot the homecoming of Charlotte local, Cheslie Kryst, and she came home to a proud city. She’s from Charlotte and tons of people came out to see her and […]

An elopement to remember with Donminique and Chaz is an understatement. I was so thrilled with these two reached out and allowed me to capture their elopement. I love elopements. I can’t get enough of them. They’re intimate, romantic, and emotional and this was all of those and a bit more than we expected! We […]

Jasmine is expecting a baby and I had the privilege of shooting her uptown Charlotte baby shower. It was a wild affair for a number of reasons. Jasmine is the daughter of the extremely well-known star Michael Jordan and it was such a beautiful gettogether to celebrate bringing new life into this world. Not only […]

Well, we’ve left you waiting long enough! If you’ll remember we posted Kayla’s college reveal session (linked) a few weeks ago and we want to finally showcase her entire senior session! And with a reveal like that, you know we didn’t hold back on her full session either. Kayla is such a big dreamer and […]

We’ve been looking forward to this for a long time and we are so excited to announce that we are kicking off in a new city and expanding Ariel Perry Photography into Chattanooga, Tennessee! We met with our new senior reps for the Chattanooga area and gave them the full experience to start branching into […]

Jasmine and I have been planning her birthday shoot for about a month now. It’s something she was nervous about since she’d never had a true professional photo shoot before. I knew from that moment on I wanted to work with my team to make this day so special. Jasmine was turning 30 and wanted […]

I’ve been working with Kayla and her family in some photographic capacity for years and since Kayla herself was in middle school. The years have flown by and it’s been a ton of fun to get to know her and her family and now to watch her make such an important decision in her life. […]

When it comes to planning your senior portrait photography session, it can seem really overwhelming. And you also know that these photos are going to leave a lasting memory in the mind’s of your friends and family and want them to be the best photos possible before you start a new chapter in your life.

It’s one of my favorite things when high school seniors bring something special to them to incorporate into their senior portraits. I already knew I was excited for Layla’s shoot because her beauty and femininity belong in front of a camera! We found ourselves in downtown Charlotte in an eclectic neighborhood called Noda and made […]

A little rain couldn’t stop us during Karlee’s Durham senior portraits. I should have known that Karlee would be a boss to work with. She’s a scholar, a wicked softball player, and a national champion Shag dancer. In other words, she’s well-rounded, skilled, and banged out photos even in the rain! We started in Downtown […]
