FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Here are some Questions we generally get from our clients on Wedding Photography & Video.
However, if you have any other questions, please contact us, we will be happy to answer your questions.

CHARGING BASIS & QUOTE

We charge based on session , not based on hours as Indian Wedding do not strictly adhere to the schedule . For different service , based on your event schedule , we will charge.

Do you take candid wedding photos ?

Yes and No! Candid is one of the misused/abused word in wedding photography industry. We call ourselves as wedding photojournalists . When there is some activity happening like Garland exchange, tying Mangal Sutra or any ritual , we will not interrupt and ask you to pose ? . We capture whatever is happening as natural as possible. So we document the whole event as a flow of moments and tell a story in each image as creatively as possible. So , when you see the collection of photos, you can relive the moments .

However , when we take portraits , of course we direct the people & make them pose. Coming from the fashion / advertisement background, we know how to make a common person pose elegantly.

So, to be precise, we take both candid & posed shots based on situation & clients’ preference .

Do you take/arrange Group Photos traditional photography ?

Yes. This is an optional service that you can avail. My second shooter ( associate photographer ) will take the group shots while i take the candid photos. We will be bringing the studio lights & other equipments for this. I suggest you since you don’t have to hire a separate photographer for this. And the quality of group photos will be better than the local studio group photos.

Mind working with Traditional photographers ?

Not at all. We, the creative candid photographers are not replacement for the traditional photographers. We compliment them. We generally do not do their job and they do not do our job. We both coexist very well .

When it comes to lighting , etc , we should have the upper hand

Do you design & print Photo Books ?

Of course yes. We design the layout of the photo book. Photo books are printed by leading printers .

{ My photography service always include the following: 1. Photography service for 10 hours on the wedding day 2. All travel expenses for the photographer, excluding accommodation. 3. You keep the final images on DVD You will own “home use rights” to your images which means that you can do pretty much anything you want with them as long as it doesn’t generate any income for yourself or the people you give them to. Find out all the details in the contract. The images you receive are all color corrected and optimized, print-ready high resolution files good enough for any high-end glossy magazine. An average set will range from 180-250 images for a small wedding to 600-800 images for a large wedding. You will get a DVD set with a HighRes folder with all the images and another folder with all the images in low resolution, ready for use in email or be uploaded to you Facebook or flickr account. All the images I shoot at your wedding are backed up in the most reliable and sophisticated back-up system and will stay secure with me in case you lose the DVD I sent you.

Time frames can range anywhere from two weeks to two months, depending on the time of the year and my schedule. The average delivery time is usually two to four weeks but can sometime take more. In any case, delivery of the final DVD will be less than 60 days from the time of your wedding. }
