About

Hello!

Alex here, owner and lead photographer of AJL Studio. Hello! I鈥檓 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鈥檛 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鈥檚 when I realized my true passion was behind the camera as a professional love story photojournalist. Weddings are a party. Some say, so I鈥檓 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 finac茅 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鈥檚 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鈥檇 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鈥檚 celebrate by starting the conversation about your wedding photography! Cheers to you!!

Alex is amazing. You need him; we all need him!

There is not a photographer more skilled than Alex; I will stand by that until the end of time! His personality and work style is honestly unbelievable. My bridal party keeps talking about him and how amazing he was at making it all seem so natural. My videographer absolutely LOVED working him with; he said he didn鈥檛 even have to do anything because Alex handled everything so perfectly. The best part is, Alex is so quick at getting his shots, you actually get to enjoy your cocktail hour too, ha! He made our wedding so fun and we are very grateful to him. If you鈥檙e looking for a very unique and awesome experience, Alex is your guy! You won鈥檛 regret it; unless you鈥檙e a bridezilla because he won鈥檛 stand for that none sense. Alex doesn鈥檛 need us; we need him! You will be very, very luck if he agrees to be a part of your big day.

Absolutely amazing

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鈥檛 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鈥檛 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鈥檓 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!!!!

Best photographer to work with on the big day

My first review here on Wedding Wire goes to Alex and his team, because they he is just amazing!
I have been working in bridal industry long enough to say that Alex is the easiest to work with and a pleasure to be around, his sense of humor kept everyone laughing, you can see he is enjoying what he does and gives it all to the couple!
I wish every single bride of mine would have booked him, because his work is beautiful and he really gets it.
You go, Alex!
