Puja Studio is a family-run, father-son business servicing the Chicagoland Area. What started as a father teaching his son about film and video cameras, transcended into a hobby and passion.
At Puja Studio, each client is treated as if they are part of our family. I don’t mean a business-only family, I mean a call-if-you-need-anything type of family. Your happiness inside and out of your special day is most important to us. We want to be able to capture the emotions, beauty, and all the memories, so you can feel the rush of nostalgia and joy when you sit back and remember the day a few months, years, or even decades later.
Growing up, I was given a camera to take pictures at any wedding or event so I don't run around causing any trouble. I absolutely hated being in front of the camera but had no problem being behind it to capture the memories unfolding in front of me. Having pictures taken of you seems daunting, but it is one of the most important things to have as memories and keepsakes. Once the event is over or after someone has passed, the pictures are all you have left. This is what I hold true after losing countless amount of memories in a fire at a young age. It's the reason you'll see me work my hardest to make sure you can relive the memories when you look back at your pictures.
So who am I? I'm a night owl, ice cream fanatic, Cubs fan, who currently is binge watching yet another Netflix series. You can catch me listening to an eclectic array of music while editing and doing work. I've been a hobbyist photographer since 4th grade and took it to a professional level during high school and post college (Go ILLINI!). I strive to make your day and session as laid back and memorable as possible so if you like corny jokes and Taco Bell, I'm sure we will get along just fine!
