I came across Ananya through Instagram. I was looking for photographers in Goa for an intimate family shoot. After contacting her I knew that she would be perfect for us. She’s very warm and friendly. She walked us through how the session would be and suggested a lot of ideas about the outfit and the location! Through out the entire session she was very patient and professional! I’d 100% recommend Ananya to capture your special memories!

We hired Ananya and her team in Sep 2018 for covering my daughter’s first birthday. I was very skeptical at first, but since she came as a reference from a friend and after looking at her beautiful portfolio, I contacted her. We had a really smooth experience with her all throughout. She was very accommodating at every step. The way she and her team handled the candid shots of my little baby was amazing! She made it look like the whole thing was so easy. She did an absolutely amazing job. We were more than satisfied. I highly recommend her and her team.

It was my brother's destination wedding in Jaipur. I had fallen in love with Ananya's work after looking at just one picture on her Instagram feed. We were wanting candid photography and it seemed to be her forte. She met my family and understood our requirements in one meeting and gave us an assurance very confidently making us stress free. We had requested her to get us drone permissions which were extremely difficult but just when we had lost hope due to her consistent efforts she managed to get them approved for both days as promised. She and her team (Deepak , our favourite) were on their toes, very alert and efficient during all the functions. When it comes to deliverables, the short film/teaser that was shared made us emotional and happy at the same time. The pictures were amazing and just to our liking 'candid and crisp.' The colors, aesthetics, tones and clarity was a bonus. We were extremely excited to see the long film.We loved the videography and ofcourse the background score ( :P ) which took repeated attempts and almost tested Ananya's and Vardaan's (editor) tolerance and patience to fulfill our punjabi interests and keep it fun. Coffee table album layouts were acting up but with Ananya's diligence (again) ,she made sure it worked out to our taste. All in all, a big shout out to Ananya and her entire team for capturing the two day affair and providing visuals for us to revive and enrich our memories of the wedding.

Ananya is a beautiful soul who takes time to get to know who she is photographing. She was able to make me feel comfortable, was prepared with ideas, and the pictures were great!

Ananya is the sweetest photographer you can ever have. She is not only sweet by heart but also a treasure of talent who knows her work very well and is so sincere and honest to her work. She is so friendly that when you meet her for the first time, it would seem to you as if you know her for ages. She is the person upon whom you can rely on for capturing all your candid moments without giving any second thought to it. I wish her more success and luck.

It was great working with Ananya - during the shoot, she would be asking my opinion and what I would like and pictures came out very nice. Thank you!

I had the pleasure of working with Ananya and her team in 2016 where she covered my pre wedding, wedding and reception functions. We started talking nearly 5 months prior to the actual event and built a connection almost instantly. It was as if we were destined to meet! Every conversation over call or text was an exchange of creative ideas, prospective video concepts or just brain-storming. Ananya made me feel at ease throughout the whole process and I must admit: she got me excited. Weddings can be very stressful in general, and having a creative and calm person like her around was a blessing. She is a hard worker who respects her clients and their time. She also pays close attention to detail, and is open to constructive criticism. Ananya is superfun. I found a true friend in her. Thank you for everything :)

Choosing Ananya as my sister's wedding photographer was the best decision I've ever made. Her work is like a breath of fresh air. I first saw her work on Instagram. It felt so simple yet so meaningful to us from the cliche wedding photographs Instagram is flodded with, & thus we decided to have her on board for capturing this very important family event. She was so easy with everyone, especially my sister. We fell in love with how accommodating & patient the team was during the 3 day event with us. I did not know that I would find a friend in the wedding photographer :)

My sister chose Ananya as her photographer for her wedding photography. We were fully satisfied with her work especially the special attention she gave herself to the candid shots. We selected her on the basis of her instagram posts which are actually amazing. This money spent was actually worth it, and we wish we would have selected her for the pre wedding and videos as well. She definitely made all the functions look beautiful in the pictures. Would select her for all the further functions in the family. Her whole team was very friendly and talented. Thanks to her for making these memories last forever through her lense

We picked Ananya as we liked her past work. We had a really smooth experience with her all throughout. We live outside India but she was very accommodating to our schedule and availabilities. Further, she was very welcoming to our ideas and requirements for the photos. We had many chats before the events to discuss ideas on how and what to capture during the ceremonies. During the actual events, Ananya and her team were very professional and patient amidst all the madness. A big shout to Deepak too, who was part of her team. Even after the events, the delivery of the final photos was very smooth. We really appreciated her transparency regarding delivery timelines of the photos and willingness to expedite the process upon request. I would highly recommend Ananya and her team.

We had a brilliant experience with Ananya & her team. My sister's wedding was a two day affair and everything was at such a crazy pace but Ananya manage to still keep the calm with my sister and everyone around. She smoothly managed the gorgeous family portraits that adorn the walls of our house now. Not only was the team very accommodating of everything but they were always fun to be around as well. For anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer, go no further. I highly recommend her and her team.

We hired Ananya for our wedding film and it was by far the best investment we made.. You can never go wrong with this powerhouse of talent. She kept her cool throughout the wedding and did a stunning job. From communicating to delivering it was such a easy process for us too ???? We love our wedding film absolutely and cry every time we see it. Big thanks to her & her team. Would love to recommend as well as work again.

Photography was the one thing I was extremely particular about when it came to my engagement. I wanted the emotions translated into pictures and Ananya did just that. Extremely accomodating and willing to listen what her clients want, she delivered just what I wanted. When it came to editing and making changes, she welcomed that too with a smile. Not only this, Ananya is one photographer who would guide you for what is best for you. A photographer who clicks with passion is always better than a photographer who clicks as a profession. Not to forget, the album quality and design is not just durable, but also modern and classy. Ananya is one person you can totally depend on for your specialest days!! ?

We hired Ananya in June 2017 for my sisters wedding. Our relationship with her started with late night emails to which she very smoothly replied to. We too were a bit unsure after reading the last negative reviews but after meeting her, we were satisfied. And I can not wait to tell you that we had an absolutely smooth sail with her. She clicked beautiful pictures of the entire celebration but her and her team, which were super fun and friendly were a add on to work with. We are absolutely happy with our choice of her as our family photographer

I echo both reviewers up there- She is highly unprofessional and unreliable. DO NOT HIRE HER PLEASE. She OVER PROMISES and completely under delivers. She will not listen to what you want - she does what she wants and will not answer your calls or messages.

She's fake and unprofessional. It's been an year and she hasn't given me my wedding video. She'll forget about you and will stop receiving your calls after you pay her full money. Highly unprofessional. After your event you become a backlog for her which remains there for years. She's not even replying to messages. Don't spoil your wedding experience by hiring this lady. Her photography skills are really poor. Most of your photos will be blurred. Each month she'll come up with a new excuse and would ask for 4-5 more days. Her 4-5 days are never less than 4-5 months. She's fake, she doesn't know how to click photographs. She's a kid with a camera.

I hired Ananya Rijhwani in 2014 to cover my wedding for a day only. Like many of you out there, I overestimated her potential by seeing the portfolio that she claims is her & paid her 30K in advance ? all in good faith. On the day of my wedding, this girl landed in my house where we treated her all fair and square because she was going to click the most beautiful pictures from the most beautiful day of my life. But all she was ? unprofessional, lazy, sloppy, immature and a big goof-up. She screwed up the most beautiful day of my life. From morning till evening, she continued using laziness as an excuse for not taking out the camera from her luggage and not clicking any pictures. She left my parlor early since she wanted to reach the venue first and take some shots. But she did not. I don?t know where she went, because we continued getting in touch with her and she did not show up at the venue till 9 pm. From 9 am to 9 pm, she did not do anything substantial apart from cribbing and behaving like a kid who wants free lollypops but doesn?t want to move one finger to get her act together. I paid her 30 k to click good photographs. But she clicked no pictures of mine, none of the groom. She roamed here and there like a lost person. All my relatives continued pushing her for the pictures but she just escaped the spots and sat in a corner chatting up with her friends over the phone. She did not even deliver us the pictures and escaped with our hard drive. After weeks of continuous follow-up and she not picking up my calls, she sent my hard drive with pictures which were a joke. She edited only 3 of my pictures. Mind you ? she charged for candid photography and editing my pictures and album. All she delivered were a handful of bad quality shots ? unedited ? uncharmed. I don?t know whose shots she claims to be hers. But she is a big time fraud. Save yourself. Don?t hire her. Save your wedding. Celebrate your wedding. Don?t ruin it by hiring this lazy girl. Please note that even after paying 30 k in advance to her, and following up like crazy with her, she did not pick my calls, continued saying that she was busy or sick or ill & did not edit any of my pictures. I lost my money. Moreover, I lost my precious day with no good photos. Ladies (Boys) - You deserve a celebration and not a loot on the most beautiful day of your life. DO NOT HIRE HER
