About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I try to look at events and people in a way that others don't. Focusing completely on your subject and giving them your full attention allows the photo to become a memory.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Working with such a variety of people is definitely the best part of photography. Different subjects bring different characteristics and flair to each photograph, it keeps the job interesting always working with someone new.

    Great experience
    Alanna was very responsive, professional and patient. Our family photos turned out beautiful and Alanna picked the perfect location for a beautiful setting which was also convenient for us as well. Also, we got our photos in the time frame we agreed on. I would definitely use Alanna again.

    Alanna met us downtown where Izzi had a backdrop she wanted for senor photos and then proceeded to walk with us and help us find a few other sensational settings in beautiful Minneapolis! Her attention to detail and precision skills gave us tremendous options to select from with the essence of my daughter's personality captured!

    We were running out of time to get senior pictures taken/submitted to the yearbook staff. Alanna gave us plenty of dates/times, and lucky us had awesome weather for our outdoor photos. We were able to review our photos w/in a week. PLUS, Alanna was able to format our pictures to the yearbook's specs and she gave us two imaging diskettes (one formatted for the yearbook and one for us). ANOTHER PLUS, she did a fabulous job on blemish touch-up! She's not a super chatty person, so if you have a somewhat quiet child like I do, you'll find this experience very comfortable.

    Alanna was amazing! She captured beautiful pictures of the wedding party and guests. She was also able to get great pictures of my very, very, very cranky 18month old.

    Alanna Olson photography was amazing! She was super friendly, easy going, got the pictures we wanted!!! She took pictures of our our door wedding. Our pictures took about 4 hours from star before the wedding and through to the relaxing reception which was perfect for us! Alanna was the perfect photographer for us, on time, kept things easy going, good communication on how we wanted our photos! Would definitely recommend her for wedding photography or any other photo shoot! Thanks again Alanna!!!!

    It was really fun working with Alanna for mysenior pictures. Despite the cold we took pictures for about 1 1/2 hours , and had a great time. She's very easy going and easy to talk to. I loved the pictures we took and she edited them all in less than 2 weeks!

    Alanna was asked to capture, on film, my essence as a professional composer. Prior to the shoot, I had very little experience being photographed, but her calm demeanor managed to assuage any anxiety I might have had. The subsequent shots she came up with managed to make me look like a cool, edgy, talented guy (which.. *ahem*.. I am of course, though I've never had a photograph indicate as much) Additionally, she completed THIRTY high quality touch-ups in a very timely manner. Though just 23, make no mistake, Alanna is a professional with a bright future in photography. Possessing more than just a talent for the craft, she also knows how to work with people and deliver quality results right on schedule. I would definitely recommend Alanna for any project, particularly those requiring a degree of 'artsy' finesse.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Email or call the photographer to speak with them one-on-one about what services they offer and how much for everything, including editing and a CD or flash drive. This will help avoid any surprises when it comes time to exchange photos for payment.
