Brighton Michigan Photography


Hi, this is Tom, VeLoie, Seth and Josh Alling, (and our family) and we are Alling Photography (Alling Photography is TJ’S Photography & Imaging) of Brighton Michigan. Besides our love of photography and graphic design work, we also love great food, love to tease each other, love to laugh and love nothing more than just spending time together when we are lucky enough to all be in the same place.

Alling Photography offers full service photography all over Southeastern Michigan and graphic design work anywhere in the world.  In 2006 we started our family owned Brighton, Michigan photography business under the name of TJ’S Photography & Imaging.  TJ’S stands for Tom, Josh & Seth (We just couldn’t come up with an acronym that easily included a V for VeLoie, even though she is one of our main photographers & business administrator).  We started out taking Senior Pictures primarily in the Livingston County and surrounding areas, including Brighton, Howell, Hartland, South Lyon, Pinckney and Milford.  We offered our customers beautiful photography, as well as cutting edge graphic design work using our customers senior portraiture to create beautiful composites, graduation announcements and Open House invitations.  Over the years we gained a long line of pleased customers who referred our services to others, helping our little family photography business to grow into what it is today.  We at Alling Photography love the fact that most of our business has been from the referrals of satisfied customers!

A couple years ago we decided to simplify our name, changing it to Alling Photography. We have also kept the name TJ’S Photography & Imaging to make it easier for our past customers.  From here on out though, I will refer to us as Alling Photography. That seemed the best name to use since all of us involved in the business are part of the Alling family, and we made that change with the release of this website that we are pleased to say was designed by our very talented son, Seth.  Over the years Alling Photography, has grown to include Wedding photography, Engagement Photography, Family Photography, Maternity Photography, Newborn & Baby Photography, Children & Teens Photography, Portraiture including artistic, executive, and business headshots, and of course, Senior Portraiture is still our main business.  We now take pictures all over Southeastern Michigan and on location about anywhere photography takes us.  We also still use our graphic design talents to incorporate our customers portraiture into cool composites, graduation and wedding announcements and/or invitations, greeting cards, fun story boards and custom designed photo albums.  We also offer a huge variety of photography products such as framed portraiture, gallery wraps, metal prints, standouts, block wraps and all of the latest cutting edge photography products.  We love photography, we love working with our wonderful customers and would love the opportunity to capture your smiles.
