Photoshoot- Wellington Wedding Photography, Videography

We are immensely grateful to Ruchika and DJ for their exceptional work. Choosing them (A Wedding story) for our wedding photography was one of the best decisions my wife and I made. Opting for the Silver 2 package, which included video highlights of our ceremony and reception, proved to be a fantastic choice. Their photography and videography exceeded all expectations, capturing every special moment with breathtaking clarity. Each time we revisit the photos and video, it transports us back to our wedding day as if it were yesterday.

Working with Ruchika and DJ was incredibly comfortable; it felt like we had known them for years. Their professionalism as wedding photographers in Wellington and Lower Hutt was truly outstanding. They were jovial and flexible, both with us and our guests, contributing to the cheerful ambiance of our wedding day. Their excellent communication and efforts to understand our expectations beforehand made the entire experience seamless.

We wholeheartedly recommend Ruchika and DJ if you want your special moments to be immortalized forever. Thank you once again for your remarkable work, and keep on doing the great work!

Ruchika and her husband delivered exceptional wedding photography services during our special day in Wellington. Their ability to capture a wide array of spectacular images far surpassed our expectations. The atmosphere during our group photo sessions was both relaxed and enjoyable, thanks to their professional demeanor that helped everyone feel comfortable and even brought out genuine laughs.

Our ceremony was beautifully set outdoors at the Wellington Botanic Gardens. Following the vows at Remembrance Ridge, Ruchika and DJ accompanied us on a scenic 15-minute walk to the Begonia House for our reception. Along the route, they skillfully captured heartwarming moments of my wife and me. Additionally, they expertly utilized the breathtaking rose gardens to snap some truly remarkable photographs before we joined our guests at the reception.

The photos of our guests were particularly impressive, highlighting the joyful and significant nature of the day for our families. The final collection of photographs was astonishing, showcasing their high level of creativity and professionalism. Ruchika’s expertise as a wedding photographer in Wellington, and indeed one of the leading wedding photographers in NZ, was evident throughout our interaction.
