There are not enough worlds to truly explain how happy I am with AJ’s Photography. Allen was so wonderful. We hired him to do our photography and videography and we could not be any happier. He was there early the day of to start taking pictures of the girls getting ready and he was sure to tell me that anything I wanted he would try to make happen. We had a lot of family pictures and went to multiple places to take pictures and he made it happen with ease. We received quite a few pictures a couple days after the wedding On Facebook and then the sneak peek of our video right after that!! We also were able to see the rest of our pictures (over 400) on Facebook the very next week! Two weeks after the wedding he reached out to let us know that our video was done. We set up a meeting and much to our surprise he had a beautiful box with the proofs of every single picture as well as our video and a flash drive with all of our pictures on it. The video is amazing and truly captured all of the special moments from our wedding. If you want to be able to look back and relive your wedding day, go with AJ’s because he did an amazing job!!!Sent on 09/16/2018

The best photography and Videography around
Our wedding date was September 1st, 2019 and my husband and I were going back and forth on a videographer for long enough and finally he convinced me that I talked about it enough and to look into it. We started looking for someone to capture our day on August 10th, 2019. I knew that finding someone that close to the day was near impossible but we tried anyway. Allen called me within hours of me submitting my request for more information and let me know that our wedding day was miraculously still available. He answered every question I had and even worked with my husband and I to make our day even more special. Kristie was a valuable asset to our day and captured moments that I will forever cherish. Thank you so much for everything you have done and do for newly married couples who want to relive those precious moments again.Sent on 09/09/2019

Allen did a wonderful job at our wedding at Turning Stone. He was friendly, flexible and understanding when it came to our large wedding party. We received all our photos, digital and print in 10 days, and they were fantastic. Would 10/10 recommend for anyone getting married in the area.Sent on 08/13/2019
