Asif and his team at A Touch of Elegance are beyond amazing! From the outstanding quality of the pictures, to the time that Asif and his team take with you, to his patience but perfection and his amazing personality, it would be a fantastic decision to choose this company for your wedding. I also used this company for my engagement pictures and a boudoir photo shoot! Outstanding!! I will use them for my baby photo shoot as well!

About Us

We are a boutique wedding and portrait studio located in Fairport, NY. It is our joy and privilege to be able to create lasting art for each of our clients, whether it be a family having a day of fun at the beach, a sweet newborn sleeping soundly, or lovers saying “I do” on the greatest day of their lives. 



My name is Asif Ali and I want you to think of me as YOUR personal photographer. I have had the privilege of documenting precious milestones in the lives of my clients since 2010. 

Some of my favorite things to do are playing with my 4 beautiful children, staying up late with my lovely wife of almost 17 years, and drinking Americanos from The Daily Grind Coffeeshop (to help cope with staying up too late!). 

I also thoroughly enjoy what I do - I get a glimpse into the life of each person I photograph and feel as though I’ve made a new friend by the time we’re through with the session or wedding. My desire is to be your photographer for life - from engagement to wedding, maternity to newborn, 1 year old cake smash to senior photos - and to create lasting art for you and your family to cherish as a family heirloom and display in your home. 


Session pricing

SIMPLE. We keep it simple when it comes to how we price our sessions. Whether it be a family, high-school senior, baby, maternity, pet, or engagement session, we have one pricing for all (with the exception of pro-headshots - see below for that):

SHORT - $75 (1 location, up to 1 hour and 2 outfits/looks)
TALL - $100 (2 locations, up to 2 hours and 4 outfits/looks)

Most of our sessions take place outside at different locations (a park, the beach, your home, etc.), within a 30-mile radius of Fairport, NY. We do travel further when requested for a nominal additional charge.

The session fee covers the cost of providing you with the service of:

  • our time to create beautiful images and capture those special moments

  • narrowing down the captures to a reasonable "best of"

  • intuitive editing and retouching of those images

  • presenting those images to you 1 week after the session at our studio to make your selection and purchase your favorite images

We work hard to keep our product pricing simple and flexible, as well as affordable. 

professional headshot pricing

Pro-headshots are needed by most of us these days, whether it be for work, social media, or dating websites. We offer a simple base package for $125 which includes a 15 minute studio session and 1 digital image, retouched to your desire. Additional digital images can be purchased for $75 each.

Our wedding photography prices range from $2,500 to $4,950. On average our couples spend around $3,900 based on what they value most in their wedding photography coverage with us.

It is EXTREMELY important for us to make a connection with our couples before photographing their wedding. We invite you to schedule a time to come chat with us at our studio to see if we would be a great fit for each other.
