Photoshoot- Wellington Wedding Photography, Videography

We are so grateful to Ruchika and DJ for their awesome work. It was an excellent experience, I and my wife am so glad that we chose them (A Wedding story) for our wedding photography. We opted for the Sliver 2 package which also included the video highlights of our wedding ceremony and reception. They went above and beyond with the photography and videography which is breathtaking. They captured all our special moments and every time we watch the video and the photos, it takes us back to our special day like it was yesterday. Working with them was very comfortable, it felt like we know them for ages. Their work as wedding photographers in Wellington and Lower Hutt surpassed our expectations.

Both of them were jovial and flexible around us and our guests. We had a catch up with them before the wedding, their communication is fantastic. They get to know you as an individual and what are your expectations from their work. They made the whole wedding ambience cheerful for which we are really grateful. We would highly recommend them, if you want your special moments to be mesmerised forever. Thank so much once again, keep on doing the great work

Ruchika, Dj and their team made our wedding day so memorable. Even before our wedding day, they paid a lot of attention to the details. They took the time to personally get to know us better, discussing what our personal interests were, our families and friends. With this in mind, we figured out what’s most important to us so that it can be photographed on the day. On the wedding day itself, they were prompt and professional. They made our guests feel comfortable, creating fantastic scenes and lifting the mood! All of this effort resulted in an amazing set of beautiful photos and showed in our tailored video which we couldn’t be more happy about.

Even after the wedding, they consistently kept us informed on how editing all the images were going, and walked us through various options of putting the photos onto canvas to have in our home so we can enjoy the photos for many years to come! We’d highly recommend Ruchika to anyone looking to capture all the special moments of their wedding day

We loved working with Ruchika and Dinesh they’re very professional, genuine, flexible and easy to work with. We had to postpone our original plans due to Covid-19 but they were very understanding. After we decided to have the wedding back on, they made sure they’re available on the day. The photos came out beautifully capturing the special moments of Gaby and I as well as of our family and friends. A day we will never forget! Thank you Ruchika and Dinesh ❤️ – Jay and Gaby

Location- Botanical/ Rose Garden, Wellington

Ruchika and her husband provided outstanding photography services for our wedding. They captured a multitude of stunning shots that truly exceeded our expectations. During the group photo sessions, they made us feel at ease and even managed to get us to laugh, creating a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Our wedding took place outdoors at the Wellington Botanic Gardens, and we were thrilled that Ruchika and DJ joined us for a 15-minute walk from Remembrance Ridge, where the ceremony was held, to the Begonia House for the reception, capturing beautiful shots of my wife and I along the way. They also took advantage of the stunning rose gardens to take some remarkable photos of us before we headed to the reception.

We were especially pleased with the photographs of our guests, which highlighted the significance of the event for our families. The final product was breathtaking, with all photos displaying a high level of professionalism and creativity. Overall, Ruchika’s service was exceptional, and we can’t thank her enough. Thank you, Ruchika, for helping to make our wedding day so special!
