AJ Studios began as a dream, deeply inspired by the vibrant chaos of South Asian festivals, where every corner bursts with color and life. Launched in 2010, our journey has been a crescendo of capturing timeless moments, as vivid and spirited as the festivals that sparked our inception. We've marked our way with significant milestones, like receiving the prestigious "Best Cultural Wedding Photographer" award in 2015, which celebrated our dedication to tradition and storytelling. In 2018, we broadened our horizons, bringing our passion for narrative to international destinations, from the rolling vineyards of Tuscany to the historic palaces of Rajasthan. 2020 marked the year we elevated our wedding narratives with drone cinematography, adding a soaring, cinematic dimension to our visual storytelling. Each leap forward is a testament to our unwavering devotion to crafting stories that transcend the ordinary, seamlessly blending centuries-old traditions with contemporary creativity.
