A Wonderful Newborn Photography Experience .We recently had the pleasure of experiencing a delightful newborn photography session with Ruchika and I couldn't be happier with the... results! From the moment we booked the session to the final delivery of the photos, the entire process was seamless and heartwarming.Before the photoshoot, I had few worries about how my baby would cooperate with shoots and costumes. Ruchika handled my baby with such care and patience, allowing for natural and adorable shots that truly captured the essence of those precious early days.What I loved most about the photoshoot creativity and incredible ability to capture baby's innocence and charm in every shot. During the session, they made sure we were comfortable and ensured a warm, friendly atmosphere, making the entire experience enjoyable for our family.The final photos exceeded our expectations! At one stage I literally sit confused to select photos for our small album because its really hard to select limited number of photos from all entire photos. Ruchika is highly professional in editing photos and we saw the detailing on final photos.I would wholeheartedly recommend Ruchika and team for anyone seeking newborn photography. You will Never disappointed what you pay for and will get the result more than what you more

"Simply Amazing" - This is how we would like to describe our overall family shoot experience with Ruchika & Dinesh. Since it was our first family shoot together with our 18 months... old girl, we were bit nervous about how it would go. But big thanks to Ruchika & DJ who made this entire experience so smooth and memorable. They made sure that we become comfortable before the shoot begins. We shared some good laughter and friendly conversations before the shoot and that's how we all including my parents and kids made instant connection with Ruchika and DJ.We loved each and every section of this entire shoot. While having chat with them, we got to know each other quite well and they instantly made a script/plan on how this entire shoot will go. We also discussed if we have any certain requirements or anything we are particular about. We loved their unique perspective to make this shoot look more natural and relaxed.We as a family spent such a great quality time with each other while having this shoot. We got to see our parents after 3 years and if we remember correctly, they never had such beautiful moments together in their life. We will always be thankful to Ruchika & DJ for creating such a wonderful memories which will stay forever in our heart.Now when we see the final outcome, it looks so natural and authentic. We are delighted and extremely satisfied with the end result. We would be more than happy to recommend Ruchika & DJ to all the folks in NZ to have this amazing more

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.

My husband and I had our Maternity shoot done at Ruchika Jain Photography studio. We are so glad that we chose Ruchika and DJ for this, they are lovely couple who makes you feel... comfortable and approachable. From making booking to answering all our queries patiently. They both were absolutely amazing and made us feel so at ease and comfortable as we both were bit nervous about the maternity shoot considering it our first time. They made our experience such an enjoyable one. During the shoot also, we were able to see the in between shots and the way those moments were captured was amazing and so special to us. We are so excited to see the final product. Ruchika has a great collection of maternity gowns which she can also help you to choose from. The studio has other props as well that one can include in the shoot to play with. The best part was the shoot was done so perfectly and they both didn’t rushed the shoot which gave us ample of time to fix and change our clothes. Overall, we can’t thank them enough and were so satisfied after finishing the shoot. Highly recommend to anyone who are looking for an amazing session with creative, friendly and professional more

We are so grateful to Ruchika and DJ for their awesome work. It was an excellent experience, I and my wife are so glad that we chose them for a our wedding photography. We opted for sliver 2 package which also included the videos highlights of our wedding ceremony and reception. They went above and beyond with the photography and videography which is breath taking. They captured all our special moments and every time we watach 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.

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

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.
