Owning a business is a life-changing decision.

We will work with you so that your United Portraits franchise becomes the leading, most professional volume photography business in your community and support you on your path to lasting success as a business owner.
This franchise fee covers the use of the United Portraits name, logo, trademarks, support staff and methods of doing business. Franchise financing may be available for those that qualify!
The total investment to open an United Portraits franchise ranges from $47,300-$136,750.
