Alex here, owner and lead photographer of AJL Studio. Hello! I’m a Hudson Valley based wedding photographer, but I love shooting love stories in new York City, the tri-state areas, and if someone asked me to shoot their elopement on top of some crazy beautiful mountain peak in New Zealand I probably wouldn’t complain.I have loved cameras since my parents got me a old Canon 35mm for me back when digital was still being made fun of as the new kid in town. I pursued theater in college, and did a stint as a legit NYC barista and bartender, worked in commercial production, and held down a few other gigs - all with a camera by my side. That’s when I realized my true passion was behind the camera as a professional love story photojournalist. Weddings are a party. Some say, so I’m told, your wedding could quite possibly be the best day of your life ;) I love working with couples that share my sentiment that this momentous day should be just a super fun party down event. I love working with brides who can laugh at their finacé because they laughed so hard they snorted beer on themselves at the cake cutting. I love a groom who has more of an opinion on what color the roses in the bud vases should be than his lady-to-be.Whether it’s elegance in a large Manhattan wedding or a boho elopement hiking through the Catskill mountains, no matter what you seek to celebrate your love story, I’d love to capture the details - the moments in between the other little moments - to document your the beginning of your story as husband and wife. And to laugh and party and dance with you all night long.Let’s celebrate by starting the conversation about your wedding photography! Cheers to you!!

There are truly no words to describe the work of Alex (AJLstudio). Alex shot our wedding this past weekend (and our engagement shoot last year), and I am completey blown away with the results. Not only is Alex an extremely talented photographer, on the day of the wedding, he also acts a creative director, he knows exactly what to do and where to go and what time to do everything. I didn’t even have to think! Alex makes the whole experience easy and fun. He knows exactly how to make you feel comfortable when taking portraits ( we all know how awkward it feels to get your picture taken) and is ALWAYS excited to be there. On my wedding day, I didn’t want to feel like I was missing the party, which I made clear to Alex. He was careful to make sure that We were present - only pulling us away for a few short moments during magic hour. He captured the whole night just perfectly. My friends and family had so much fun with him also. I recieved so many compliments and praises for Alex and his assistant Tanner - I’m pretty sure they have the business of all future weddings of my friends (lol). Alex sent me a sneak peek of our wedding album this morning and I am just in awe. His work is stunning. I can not wait to see the rest!!!!Sent on 10/19/2020

I wish every single bride of mine would have booked him, because his work is beautiful and he really gets it.
You go, Alex!

An absolute dream
Alex was an absolute DREAM to work with, I cannot recommend him enough. When we had our engagement shoot I thought it was going to be uncomfortable being intimate in front of a camera and that there was no way there would be a decent picture. I was so very wrong. Alex made both of feel incredibly comfortable, we were laughing and joking and felt an instant connection. His photos are breathtaking stylistically, but one of the best things is that he isn't all about the posing, Alex captures candid moments that you didn't know you wanted but are so happy you have. In addition, his turn around time on the photos is superb. Finally, another fantastic thing about this photographer is that he truly loves what he is doing and it shows in every aspect of his photos and demeanor.Sent on 11/21/2019
If you book him for your special day I promise you, it will be the best decision you make.
