I would like to say a big thank you to Ruchi and DJ. I highly recommend this photographer, as they just make it feel like your best friends are capturing moments for your big day. Initially, there was a mess in our plan, like our booking being cancelled in the hotel, but trust me, they are not just concentrating on photos; they just solve your problems and boost your mood to take exact happy pictures. Honestly, she never forced us to give any fake laughs; she created joy in every moment. Also, they are so professional and well organised. We had a meeting before the event, and she noted each and everything, and I can’t explain how much we enjoyed my bachelorette; Ruchi and her team made our day.

I got really impressed while she took a sheet on my bachelorette in that she wrote all the scenarios and She was making sure everything was covered. Ruchika Jain photography and her team just mingles with each and every girl to make them comfortable, and they are flexible to come to all the locations. Put it in a nutshell: they are so jovial and capture all your happy moments without fail. Thank you so much, guys; you’re the best.

We chose Ruchika for a maternity shoot last year and it was a good decision. We were extremely happy with our photos and had a wonderful experience working with her and DJ. I can’t even explain how wonderful the pictures are, we were blown away by the quality. She and DJ worked very well and made us comfortable and they were able to get the most lovely shots from both of us because of it. She is a very talented photographer and I highly recommend her to anyone else looking for a maternity photographer.
Happy to work on future too.

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 into 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!
