Photo Room


Our Photography team works hard the entire weekend – so you get to walk away with memories in the form of photos and videos from ANE!


The Photo Room is a photo studio where you can have your photo taken. Everyone is welcome to visit the Photo Room! It’s free, you’re not required to have a fursuit or costume, and you don’t need any experience with posing. Our staff will help you get ready for the camera. We’ll have some themed props and you’re welcome to bring your own props as well. 

We welcome individuals and groups of up to 12 people. We accept visitors on a first come first served basis. If there’s a line, we may limit the number of photos per person/group to keep the line moving and reduce wait times. If you want more photos, you’re welcome to line up again, or return when it’s less busy.

It’s free to have your photo taken in the Photo Room, but we’d greatly appreciate it if you made a donation to the ANE charities, Wings of the Dawn and Youth on Fire! You can read more about the charities here.


If you have any questions, please email [email protected].

The Photo Room is located in the Faneuil Room on the Mezzanine Level (Floor 2) on the same side of the hotel as the Grand Ballroom and the Starbucks.

You can find the photos from previous years here.

If you want a physical souvenir to take home, we offer high-quality 4×6 prints of any photos taken in the Photo Room! We offer up to 3 prints per person for free, and we can offer additional prints with a minimum $1 donation to the ANE charities, Wings of the Dawn and Youth on Fire. You can read more about the charities here

Please note that prints are subject to availability of materials. We may run out of materials by Sunday, so if you want a print, please try to visit earlier in the weekend!


We’re offering something new this year! If you make a single donation of $1000 or more to the ANE charities, we’ll work with you to plan a private 1 hour photoshoot, shot entirely on 35mm color negative film! 

You can read more about the charities here.

You can view the photographer’s portfolio here featuring some (digital) samples of his portrait work.

Availability is limited; please inquire as soon as possible. Please read the fine print for complete details.
