Introduction: I am a creative portrait photographer and retoucher/editor and I love to tell stories through imagery. With a keen focus on listening to my clients needs, I go above and beyond to deliver results better than what they expect; dream like pieces of art that can adorn the walls of my clients' home. With a passion for learning and growth, I continuously work on sharpening my skills as a photographer and a creative retoucher. Some of accomplishments include being featured on a number of online magazines as well as my work being selected to be showcased at the MN State Fair 2019. My motto - Change is the only constant. So if you are not growing or improving, you are stagnant or dieing. And neither of those situations are great! So better buck up and start moving towards your dreams and goals - one small step at a time!

We love our wedding photos from Pallavi. She met with us before the wedding day to find out what we wanted and she went to the park the day before to find the best places for photos. She took so many amazing pictures in a short time frame and worked with our budget to get what we wanted most. She is an amazing artist and I would highly recommend her work to anyone looking for a dedicated and creative photographer.

I had a great experience working with Shutter Glee Photography. Pallavi accommodated my schedule and produced a beautiful professional headshot. She had several packages including 1 which matched exactly what I was looking for. I highly recommend Pallavi's services and I will definitely hire her again.

I used Shutter Glee Photography for my son’s senior photos and I could not be happier! Pallavi was responsive, patient, flexible, friendly and professional. So many wonderful photos were taken that I’m having a hard time narrowing down the ones I want edited and that is a fantastic problem to have! My family was so happy with our experience that when we got home from the photo shoot I immediately referred a friend to her! I will not hesitate to use her for all of my photography needs in the future!

Amazing photographer! She made the photo session fun, was open to any poses/places we wanted to try, and the pictures turned out incredible without any edits. Extremely satisfied with our experience!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    That it is a flat rate and can be subject to change.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    1). Understand customer vision - I try and get to know them as people and have them share some inspiration photos. 2). Location - Then work with them on finalizing location. If they do not know what one to go with I try and pick a location that would match their vision in #1. 3). Outfits and props - This is super essential step to the final finished product. I make sure we come up with few different options that would tell a story about who the person or couple is.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a self-taught photographer. My work in other forms of media arts such as video production, blogging, makeup artistry have all added to my expertise in photography.
