What 2023 bridal couples had to say about us!

AJ's Photography wedding Vernon Downs

Allen is an amazing photographer! As a person who does not enjoy viewing pictures of herself, I cannot stop looking at the pictures that he took at my wedding. He not only made our posed pictures beautiful, but he captured candid and important moments as well. His crew are professional and are fun to working with. His photography packages are also amazing bang for your buck. He includes Photo Booth and videography in addition to photography. I would definitely work with him and his team again!"

AJ's Photography wedding Breezes in Utica

"AJ's Photography was absolutely fantastic to work with! We are not the "easiest" couple to take photos of (one of us really dislikes having our picture taken 😂) but Allen did a great job of making us feel comfortable and relaxed. You can see the happiness in our photos and he really captured the day just beautifully. I could not ask for a better outcome, thank you Allen!"
