The First of Its Kind.

We can’t wait to see what’s made here

Legacy Studios’ stunning space is the first of its kind, and was created with the community in mind - as a way of contributing to the town that holds such a special place in our hearts. It’s intentionally designed as a shooting space for photographers, but also invites opportunities to host creative workshops, record podcasts and videos, create content, and more.

Where Dreams Come True.

Now that the space is here, we hope you’ll use it to work toward your dreams too

Legacy Studios was founded by Ariel Perry - the owner of Ariel Perry Photography - as a way of fulfilling her dream to own a photography space of her own. She wanted a studio that stands out from the crowd, encourages diversity, inclusivity and community, and allows people from all walks of life to create amazing memories.
