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.
AJ's Photography's reply:Thank you so much for the amazing review & wonderful words about me & my company. You guys were so great to work & willing to do anything including freezing your butts of to get some fun outside shots. Thank you for having us record your special day.

Quality work in a timely manner
Allen was a true professional. His work is high quality and his turn around time is insanely fast. He was fun to be around, treated us like gold during our wedding day and captured everything we wanted. He even surprised us with a slideshow of pictures at the reception. We also ordered a video of our wedding. His video and audio quality was superb. The audio was crystal clear and the HD quality on the bluray was great. His pictures and video captured our day just as we remembered it - perfect.Sent on 11/12/2019
AJ's Photography's reply:Thank you for the wonderful 5 star review. You guys were so easy & care free that everything flowed naturally & we created beautiful images together.

Best decision ever!
My husband and I decided last minute on a videographer and it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! We love being able to go back to our big day and relive it all over again. The videographer we had on our wedding day was wonderful- she was so easy to work with and captured all of the crazy moments of the reception!Sent on 02/09/2020

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
AJ's Photography's reply:Thank you for the great review & the kind words. You guys were great to work with and your "Office" inspired interviews were a real highlight.

Grasso Wedding 8-24-2019
AJ’s Photography was amazing when it came to what we wanted for our wedding. I’m definitely a picture person who likes moments captured (posed and candid). So, even before I planned on getting married, finding a good photographer was the one and only thing that I needed/wanted to be great and not settle just for a cheap price. I have seen their work throughout the years and have always loved the quality.
I looked around at a few photographers that I had in mind, but AJ’s was so quick to respond and go over all details and what they had to offer, they made the process so easy. A couple weeks leading up to the wedding they sit down with you and go over every detail, times, places/options for photos, write down any special requests you may have. They made me feel confident that I went with the right choice and would get photos that I’ve always wanted.
Morning of event, the photographer was early and able to get started on her own. Our wedding party didn’t have to worry about a thing. The photographer is very experienced and talented that she directed us all and made sure we were all positioned correctly, which made the photos even better.
From getting ready, to your typical group/couple shots, candid photos, I couldn’t have asked for anything better, she surpassed my expectations. The night of the reception she already had a slideshow going of photos she had taken earlier in the day, at that point with the few photos shown, I knew I’d be very happy and was excited to see all the photos.
It was less than a week that all of our photos were ready for pick up! People were amazed at how fast their turnaround time was and loved the photos. When you pick them up they go over in detail what is provided (depending on what package you have chosen), directions and suggestions when using the USB provided.
I would highly recommend AJ’s Photography. With their impeccable customer service, experience and very reasonable prices...you can’t beat it.Sent on 11/14/2019
AJ's Photography's reply:WOW, I'm speechless. I'm beyond thrilled on the wonderful review & how happy you guys are with our company. Laura had a great time with you, your energy & personalities were the inspiration to create wonderful memories.

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
AJ's Photography's reply:Thank you Connor for the great review. You guys really knew how to have a wedding & your pictures show it.
Amanda · Married on 07/20/2019
AJ’s Photography is the best!! His pictures are amazing you can definitely tell he has the talent and an artistic eye! He’s very easy to get along with and any requests that we had he made sure to capture. He made us feel so relaxed during the pictures. I also liked the fact that you didn’t feel like you had a camera in your face all day. Even out on the dance floor he was there taking pictures but you didn’t realize he was taking pictures. Allen is very professional and funny he was making jokes with us! He definitely goes above and beyond for his clients. And we didn’t have to wait months to get our pictures which is huge! By the next day there were some up on Facebook and within a week they were all done! You won’t be disappointed with AJS Photography!!Sent on 08/01/2019
AJ's Photography's reply:Thank you for the wonderful 5 star review. We fought the heat & created wonderful memories, you guys were true rock stars.

Great photographer we couldn’t be happier!
I would strongly recommend Allen to anyone looking for photography, videography, and photo booth services! He is very professional and captures great memories! My wife and I are recently married and we couldn’t have been happier with his work! He arrived early, and was happy to accommodate us with any last minute photo requests! During the reception he put a slideshow of pictures together for our friends and family to see, and the next day he had edited photos on Facebook! He had our wedding photos, over 400 edited and printed less than a week after our wedding! Each photo has printed numbers on the back as well as a digital copy and our very own wedding app to show our photos on our cellphones! We own the our pictures and we were able to make our family and friends prints of our wedding in quicker time than other photographers can get your wedding photos back to you! If you are in the market for any of his services you won’t be disappointed when you hire him! Thanks again Allen for all that you did for our wedding!Sent on 07/24/2019

All of our guests had so much fun in it (and wearing the many props) during our entire reception.
I think it made our guest experience much more fun than it would have been without!

Christine · Married on 10/13/2018
While wedding planning I was told by numerous people the one thing not to skimp on is a photographer and videographer. I of course started doing research and started making calls to numerous local photographers. Most of them just wanted to send a pamphlet and be done with me but when I called Aj’s Photography Allen took about an hour to explain wedding photography to me and what they did. I was blown away by the information and time he took to just talk to me. I immediately booked them and I am so glad I did! Laura was our photographer for the day of and I was impressed from the moment she arrived. She was very efficient and knew exactly what photos to take. We were able to get all of the photos we wanted and then some! She even put some of the photos together on her laptop and placed it on the card table for people to look through at the reception. Sample photos were posted to Facebook that next week along with a sample video, which is amazing! The quality of their work and the speed at which they can give it back to you is wonderful. I cannot recommend AJ’s Photography enough, they truly know how to capture every moment of your amazing day through both photography and videography!Sent on 10/23/2018
AJ's Photography's reply:Thank you for the wonderful review. It was a pleasure working with you guys & I'm thrilled you're happy with the results.
Victoria · Married on 10/06/2018
During wedding planning the one thing people continuously told me was to get a quality photographer. The day goes by so quickly and you need someone to capture every moment, so you can be present and not worry about it. Over and over people recommended AJ's to me, so we made the appointment and were beyond impressed with the first impressions! Allen is so kind and quick to respond to questions, making us feel comfortable from the start. We lived about an hour away, so meeting frequently wasn't ideal, but Allen made sure to keep in touch over the phone ensuring everything would run smoothly the day of. On our wedding day we had Laura taking our pictures and she was absolutely amazing. She arrived early and even though we weren't quite ready she got to work taking pictures of my dress and flower girls! She really kept things moving and made sure we had enough time to take all of the pictures we wanted. Not only did Laura capture every important moment that I wanted her to, she did more than I could have ever imagined. We were married a week ago today and I have been gawking at our pictures since that night! That is how fast they are with getting your pictures to you! Not only are they fast, but the quality is stunning. On top of it all, I would have thought someone was paying Laura to just follow me around and compliment me all day because that is how kind and personable she is! We also had video taken of our wedding and just from the highlights I can tell we made the right choice by having a videographer. I wasn't sure I wanted to go that route, but when we met with Allen the thing that sold me was when he played a clip of a bride saying her vows and you can hear the emotion and shakiness in her voice, and he paused the video and said that you wouldn't be able to hear that in just a picture. These guys truly know what they are doing and how to capture your wedding day perfectly!! I couldn't recommend them enough!Sent on 10/13/2018
AJ's Photography's reply:WOW, what a fantastic review, thank you Victoria for the kind words. You guys were truly the rock stars to work with & it shows in your pictures.
Kristine · Married on 09/29/2018
I researched a few photographers and I heard about Aj’s and added them to the people I should call. I got a response in less than 30 minutes and met Alan a few days later and I booked him. For price wise, there were some other locals starting at 4K but Aj’s had the same or better quality of service for less. Overall, I am flipping through my pictures now and can’t believe the stuff I was asked to do at the time that came out surprisingly great! They take the time to explain the services and directions for each step. I had Laura as a photographer and she was amazing to meet! Thank you for all you guys did!Sent on 10/12/2018
AJ's Photography's reply:Thank you for the wonderful 5 star review. It is funny when pictures are taken how much different it is to see them when they are finished.

Video Memories to Last a Lifetime
After a long search, we chose to hire AJ’s Photography to videotape our wedding, and it was a great decision! My husband and I wanted to be able to watch (wonderfully edited) raw footage of our big day to catch all the little things we missed, and relive our favorite moments.Sent on 10/15/2018
From the get-go Allen was extremely easy to work with. He is a super thorough, honest guy and always responded to any questions I had promptly. His pricing is reasonable, and the services are worth every penny.
Bob was the videographer for our big day, and we barely knew he was there (in a good way)!
Allen got our edits done and our blue rays back to us extremely fast. We’ve already watched the whole video a few times and we love it more every time!! Tons of tears and even more laughs :)
I am so glad we decided to hire a videographer for our wedding, and AJ’s was absolutely the perfect choice!!
AJ's Photography's reply:Thank you for the fantastic review. You guys were wonderful to work with, enjoy your video memories for a lifetime.
Maggie Skowron · Married on 09/15/2018
The biggest advice we received while planning our wedding was to choose a quality photographer and AJ's Photography was recommended by many. We had chosen AJ's and we could not be any happier with our decision. From the first phone call, AJ's left a memorable impression on us. Allen kept everything organized, was very timely with responses, flexible with meeting times and was very professional. What I really loved about AJ's was when they were able to play pictures on a laptop that were taken THAT day during our reception. The rest of our pictures were ready within a week! We had just recently met with Allen to go over our album that he is working on and I am beyond excited and cannot wait to see the finished product. AJ's was truly able to capture our traditions and values with the most beautiful photographs and videography. I will be forever thankful to AJ's Photography for capturing our most memorable and amazing day in the most PERFECT way! I cannot recommend them enough!Sent on 11/19/2018

Great value and photography
We hired AJ's photography for our wedding on 9/8/18. From the beginning, AJ was extremely responsive and was clear in setting expectations and timelines. He made everything so organized. Despite us marrying in Albany, NY, where he does not typically have many weddings, arrangements were easy and we both worked together to pick shooting locations. On my wedding day, both he and the Videographer were extremely nice and fun to be around while still keeping us on schedule. He recommended the order of pictures and the positioning of everyone and everything went seamlessly. Everyone had fun with the photography at the wedding and the videographer was able to accommodate my husband's request for less lighting on the dance floor while still maintaining a good picture. I am so thrilled with our pictures. Each one is flattering and the lighting and backgrounds are perfect. I would recommend AJ's photography to anyone in Central New York.Sent on 11/07/2018
AJ's Photography's reply:Thank you for the wonderful review. You guys made us feel very comfortable with your family & friends and we made incredible memories together.
Nicole · Married on 08/24/2018
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

We made the right decision booking AJ’s photography for our wedding. AJ was professional and friendly. Prior to our wedding, he was proactive in nailing down the final details of the day and offered great suggestions for alternative shoot locations in the event that the weather forecast was not in our favor. He arrived early, stayed late, and took so many great pictures that we are now having a hard time deciding which ones to include in our album. We love them all! We highly recommend booking with AJ, you will not be disappointed.Sent on 09/30/2018

Choosing A.J.’s to photograph my wedding was one of the best decisions I could’ve made! Allen arrived on time, and ready to start capturing memories with ideas for poses and various different shots. He took beautiful shots of the bridal party, and our large extended families like a true pro. We spoke a couple weeks before the wedding about what shots I wanted, and he made sure to get every one. I was able to see my finished photos online within a few days and they’re gorgeous! We have received so many compliments. I highly recommend A.J.’s for the value, the proffesionalism, and the quality!Sent on 08/06/2018

We seriously could not have asked for a better photographer. Allen and his videographer were punctual, friendly, understanding of the pressures of the day and captured everything we wanted to express in our wedding photos and more! There is a reason he's so well reviewed and popular. Hands down the nicest guy to work with throughout our entire wedding planning process. This was my first wedding so he filled me in on all the "need to know's" of the day. Our wedding was on July 21st, I can't believe it's already been almost 1 month and I'm just getting around to writing this. Time goes by so fast! He does post some of his favorites from your event on his Facebook page so be sure to like his page! Allen is the absolute BEST!Sent on 08/13/2018
