Hiring AJ's Photography for our wedding was one of our first decisions we made with our vendors. While we planned a 100+ guest wedding, due to Covid-19 we ended up having 9 people total with an intimate ceremony and dinner this past weekend on June 6th! Our pictures came out so well! Since we only had pictures done, I've only worked with Allen but his expertise with working with different lighting made our pictures amazing. We had a few poses we wanted and he accommodated all of them. He took charge with our "first look" and all of the pictures that followed, which really helped. He posed us and our families and the day was very organized. Allen also has a great sense of humor so he got some candid laughing pictures while posing us and talking with us. Highly recommend hiring AJ's Photography!Sent on 06/09/2020

I originally hired AJ's Photography to take engagement photos, without regret. The photos came out so amazing that I knew I wanted AJ's team to be there on our wedding day. Allen and his team are extremely professional and made everything stress free. Allen Bartnick went above and beyond expectations changing his role as photographer to helping the groomsmen put on their boutonnieres to helping me carry my insanely poofy/heavy dress.Sent on 02/29/2020
AJ's photography provided many services including our photos, video and photo-booth. By the end of the reception, Allen had already put together a slideshow of photos already being displayed!! Before the team left, they handed my husband and I a flash-drive containing all the pictures from our photo-booth. I could not believe how fast they got things done. By the next morning, there had already been recaps of both our ceremony and reception posted on our Facebook pages! I can continue going on and on about how pleased we were to work with AJ's. Our photos were all absolutely beautiful... I am beyond happy to have had Allen and his team capture all the best moments from one of the most important days of our lives. We cannot wait to relive these moments for years to come... Thank you Allen for all that you do.
