I am a shy girl. I haven’t always been comfortable with drawing attention to myself. When I chose to take my senior pictures in New York City, somewhere where I feel most content, I knew I was going to take pictures in front of large crowds. There were times where I felt like I was in the way of others. For example, my now favorite balloon pictures in front of the carousel. At times when I felt this way, Ari encouraged me to not worry about what others were thinking. She gave me the confidence boost I needed to create the best senior pics EVER!! 

"Your senior pictures should reflect who you are and what you love."

Ariel brought my daughter’s vision for her senior pictures to life. Too often, photographers want to do what they usually do. Ariel is willing to step outside of the box, and collaborate in ways that are fun, unusual, and that capture the spirit of the subject. And if you aren’t sure what your vision is, she and her amazing team will help you get there. While she is personable, fun and creative, she is also professional, reliable and timely. I can’t wait to work with her again for my next senior!

I absolutely loved my senior session and all of the pictures that came from it. Ariel has a clear passion for what she does and it shows through her work! I highly recommend Ariel Perry Photography to all seniors looking for the perfect senior shoot! My experience was absolutely perfect. 

Every time I look at my pictures from my shoot I wish I could go back and relive that day all over again! 

Ariel and Vil (makeup artist and hairstylist) made McKenzie feel so special on her senior portrait day. The photos were absolutely gorgeous. Vil has the special touch and is a phenomenal hair and makeup artist! Ariel is the most wonderful photographer and has the purest soul. I am so thankful that my daughter had the AP Photography experience, it was most definitely one of the best highlights of her senior year!

Let me just start by saying I love Ariel Perry and her entire team! The experience is something I might compare to having your very own style team for the day and then you get to keep the pictures! 

While shooting the atmosphere is always fun, from listening to music to her incorporating your personal tastes into the photos. 

As a mom I want my children's senior pictures to reflect who they are at the moment. I want them to be timeless and true to their character. I could not have made a better choice than Ariel Perry Photography. Ariel, Alyssa, and Q are a fantastic team. They're fun, talented and efficient, not one moment was wasted. The end result was AMAZING!! We are so fortunate to not only have the photos but the experience for a life time. I am telling everyone Ariel and her team are incredible.

I wouldn’t recommend going to Ariel if you’re just looking for someone to take some quick pics and be done because this is an experience and I loved it.

Since I can remember, I have always been a person of many interests and passions. Among my variety of interests, my love for horses, dance, and helping other people has always been a constant. I knew in my senior pictures, I didn’t want images that just captured my outer beauty. I wanted images that captured a story, and without a doubt, Ari made that happen. From taking photos at the Tivoli where I danced the Nutcracker to taking pictures with Indy, my horse and best friend, Ari captured more than just my outer appearance. Not only did she tell my story, but she made me feel like the most empowered woman in the world, and everyone deserves that chance at least once in their life.

“My daughter has had the opportunity to work with Ariel numerous times and we’ve both gotten to know her well. Her work is absolutely stunning, but even more importantly, she takes the time to understand and engage with her clients. Every time I see Ari at work, the girls are having fun and enjoying themselves. She has the ability to put everyone at ease and helps even the shyest of kids come out of their shell. I love that she shows such an interest in my child and really puts a lot of emphasis on making the shoots fun and enjoyable. It takes a special sort of person to make people feel seen and heard and Ari is definitely that kind of person. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for gorgeous photographs and a unique and fun experience. - Meggie Meyer
