wedding photography are candid, documentary, photojournalistic, art wedding photography and other fancy words like these. What we do is a mixture of all of these styles – and depends on the moment and what we’re aiming to achieve. We typically shadow the couple as closely as possible while being hypersensitive to behind-the-scenes moments and emotions that occur spontaneously. These make the best wedding memories.. We believe that a successful wedding assignment needs a mixture of all of this, and a responsible photographer should be adaptable enough to deliver a mix of genres.
Which locations have you travelled to for shooting weddings? Have you covered destination weddings?
Yes, of course – we’ve shot weddings all over India We’ve had the privilege of shooting in almost every corner of India, as well as beautiful destination wedding photography spots like Delhi , Nagpur , Mumbai , Bangalore , Patna , Bhubaneswar , Cuttack , Chandigarh , Srinagar , New Jalpaiguri , Assam , Guwahati , Agartala , Shillong , Malda , Barhampur , Pune , Varanasi , Jamshedpur , Asansol , Lucknow and so on .
How long have you been shooting weddings and how many weddings have you shot?
We first started shooting weddings way back in 2012 , Since then, we’ve shot 500+ love stories – and look forward to being a part of yours!
Where are you based? Are you open to travel for my wedding?
We are based in Kolkata We have shot weddings all over the world, and are happy to travel to your wedding – wherever it may be!
How many weddings do you typically shoot in a month/year? Do you take multiple assignments at a time?
We take up very limited weddings every year, and As because we have enough number of Lead Still Photographer and Creative Videography Team we Generally Take Multiple Assignment According to Our Limit . We like to Full focus of our attention on each and every wedding, in order to give you the very best we can. This is very important to us as this is the only way we can keep up the quality standards we are proud to have set, as well as give us enough time to be able to edit and develop your pictures – the way we meant them to be!
Do you charge extra for outstation assignments?
The short answer is no, we do not! Our core assignment fees will remain the same – and will only cover the number of days we will actually be shooting. As a photographer, we realize that we need to be available to shoot where and when needed and recognize that there will be non-billable days in travel. That’s all right, but out-of-station assignments will have an extra travel and lodging charge associated, which will be at actuals.
Do you shoot alone or do you have a team?
We have a full in-house team of photographers and cinematographers who can complement your wedding story with additional posed imagery and wedding movies. We have everything you need under one roof – which gives us the freedom to be able to create a single cohesive story using still and moving images for your wedding!
Do you offer wedding video or cinematography services? I'd like a wedding video — and I’d like everything to be done under one roof.
Absolutely! Wedding cinema has evolved a lot over the last few years. We will develop a beautiful thematic documentary style wedding video which will perfectly complement your wedding album. Typical deliverables include a wedding trailer (5-6 mins), and a full 45-60 minute wedding movie — all in brilliant high definition video.
Do you shoot both “sides” of a wedding?
Yes, we absolutely do! As a matter of fact, we highly recommend hiring just us to shoot both the groom’s and the bride’s family. It’s an absolute waste of resources to have two separate teams to essentially the same thing. We have enough resources in-house to be able to cover your entire wedding from start to finish.
Can I opt for only photography or videography packages/or hire another photography team?
Yes, of course. You can hire us for either one. But we highly recommend that you hire us for the entire package. Hiring two teams can cause a clash of ideas, and both your end products to be different from each other.
I want to make sure my family members and closest friends are not missed in the photos/film. Can that happen?
Yes, definitely! We will work very closely with you to identify what we call the “inner circle” of people. Before the wedding, we ask the couple to submit a list of names with photos, which is later distributed to the team. We will make every effort to ensure that these people aren’t missed out.
How many wedding pictures do you typically provide per wedding? What are your selection criteria?
We do not limit the number of images we shoot during a wedding (the wonders of digital photography!). The kind of work we do results in a number of rejected photos – bad expressions, bad lighting, distractions in the frame and so on. The rest of the photos are manually selected, color corrected, juxtaposed to tell a story if needed and marked for final delivery. On average, we deliver between 800-1200 images from a two-day wedding, and between 1000-1800 images from a three-day wedding (and so on…). This will be more than sufficient for you to relive your wedding, frame by frame.
Yes, all images provided to you will be edited to match the vision we had for each photo. Our editing style is a light touch – and mostly involves using a color palette that we love. To get a general idea of our editing style, please go through our portfolio on this website.
Who decides the music of the film? Can I get the music that I want for my wedding film?
The decision of the music on the film is a collaborative effort between you and us. We will take into consideration your choice and suggestions of music you want to have in your wedding film. However, our main aim is to create a film with music that will be relevant even decades from now. We strive for timeless memories that do not appear out of place even when you watch it years from your wedding day. If u want to select entire Songs or Music For Wedding Video U Have to send everything within 10 days of your wedding day .
My wedding spans three days, of which the first and second day don’t involve full day work. Why are you charging me for three full days?
This is a standard question, and it’s a valid one. There are two parts here:
- The first is that we will be booking our full day to be available for you, and therefore lose out on other potential assignments we could have shot that day.
- The second, and more important one is that in our experience during Indian weddings, things average out. Your wedding day may (and most probably will) involve shooting overtime, as Indian weddings aren’t known to get over without a song and a dance! We won’t be charging you for working extra if your wedding needs it, so at the end of the day, things really do average out.
What are your wedding photography assignment times? How many hours a day will you shoot?
Many photographers approach this differently. We do not believe in setting a limit on the number of hours we will be available to you during a wedding. Indian weddings don’t run as per a schedule (though there always is one!) and things do tend to go over-schedule at times. We usually charge by the day – with the assumption being that a regular day runs into 10-12 hours. We Generally Shoot till 11.30pm for Complete Day Booking. We do charge extra, however, if your ceremonies are scheduled very late into the night (like 4 am +) which are treated as the next day.
How long will it take for you to deliver our wedding photos? How long will the album take?
We typically deliver the All Jpg Photos With in 3-4 weeks after your wedding dates. We usually present the album options to you at this time, and Its Depend upon final payment and Time U Will Take for Ur Final Photo selection, the album will take another 3 weeks to reach your doorstep.
I want pictures to post on social media a few days after my wedding, can that happen?
We understand how excited you are to see your wedding pictures soon and share it with your friends. As mentioned above, we deliver the entire set of wedding images 4 weeks after your wedding dates. However, we usually deliver a small selection of images 8-10 days after your wedding!
How many team members do you travel with? Can reducing the crew size reduce my cost?
We believe in quality and not quantity. Usually, for a mid-sized wedding (100-400 people), we have a crew of 4 people There is a minimum number of people required to deliver the quality of images and video we guarantee, so reducing crew members will only serve to reduce the quality of photos and film that you get. Having said that, every wedding is different and we would require talking with you personally to decide the number of people needed.
What if I want some changes to be made to my wedding trailer/film?
We usually allow two rounds of changes to the wedding trailer and film. We completely understand that there is always room for changes and edits, and want to ensure that you’re absolutely happy with what you get – after all, it’s your wedding! We urge you to tell us all the changes in one go so that we can incorporate them in the first go – and leave the second round for any minor changes as needed.
If anything is complementary then u will deliver Final Edited Product and this video can’t be changed or corrected if not its completely out of track.
Do you also provide wedding albums?
Yes! Wedding albums – or weddings books, are a critical part of the final piece of work. We have spent a lot of time evaluating album vendors in India and abroad, and am pleased to let you know that based on our experience, we’ve shortlisted the vendors we work with to a very small list.
How would you describe your style of photography?
Timeless. My goal is to create the most beautiful, story-telling images that you will treasure for a life time, and to do this my style has to withstand the test of time! During the ceremony, we make ourselves invisible, we are respectfully dressed, rarely need to use flash, and stay as unobtrusive from a distance as possible.
Are your wedding packages negotiable? I can’t afford what you charge!
We truly understand how expensive it is to get married. There are a million things you need to pay for, and some of them are more challenging than others. However, premium wedding photography also comes at a price – and we can’t even begin to start justifying the effort it takes to deliver quality photos like the ones you see on this website. Either way, please do get in touch with us – we may be more affordable than you think!
Will you be using the final wedding photos in your portfolio and on your social media channels? What if we do not want that?
We may! If your wedding results in terrific wedding photos (and we are sure it will!), we would love to share those pictures on our personal portfolio website and social channels as examples of great work we’ve done, so that other couples may also be inspired by your wedding. Should you specifically NOT want us to disclose your wedding photos on our personal channels, let us know beforehand. There is no official policy on how to approach these situations, and there may be a middle ground we can work out.
What camera do you use for wedding photography? Or, what equipment do you use?
In short, we use whatever it takes to get you stunning photos. We have a long list of equipment we shoot weddings with, and this includes full-frame cameras, fast lenses, all forms of off-camera lighting, remote lighting equipment, props, stands, tripods, monopods…all of which is updated and changed constantly. In case you’re interested in having a conversation on equipment, or debating the pros and cons between Nikon and Canon & Sony , feel free to leave a comment at the end of this page!
How many photos will I receive?
This is difficult to answer, because it varies between wedding to wedding. Generally you will receive approximately 800-1000 images from the day, but it doesn’t mean it will be limited to that number, but rather, I will attempt to give you every single good photo delivered electronically in high resolution with no watermarks of any kind.
We’ve heard horror stories about lost/corrupt photos and hard drives, how do you address this?
The files are backed up immediately from the moment of capture, this is achieved by shooting same files onto two separate cards in case one corrupts (never happened to me yet), after the wedding, the files are also backed up to two hard drives + an internet cloud service to ensure 100% security. DATA SECURITY is 1st and Most Important Criteria For Our Company .
Do you also provide RAW Video As well?
Yes , will Provide Raw Video On Time Of Final Payment .
What are the general Duration for your wedding video Cinematic traditional and teaser length?
