Q.1 What kind of photography can I expect?
Answer: We take pride in our candid style of photography where we are not just documenting the activities in the wedding alone but also focus on the interactions, stories, emotions, and expressions at play which is happening during the wedding.
Mostly it might happen when you are not even aware of certain moments that happened casually but would be able to go back in time while you are looking at the wedding pictures done by us. We do take posed photographs as well, giving that ‘traditional photography’ touch to your special day.
Q. 2 What is your wedding photography style?
Answer: That’s a tough question to be answered. There are some of the popular styles associated with wedding photography that is – candid, documentary, photojournalistic, artistic etc. What we do is a mixture of all of these styles and depends on the moment and what we’re trying to achieve.
We typically shadow the couple as closely as possible while being hypersensitive to behind the scene moments and emotions that occur spontaneously by the couple. These moments make the best wedding memories. This is largely photojournalistic to an extent. We deal primarily with the candid or photojournalistic style of taking pictures.
We do take elegant and non-cliché posed pictures of weddings which are aligned with our photojournalistic approach to photography. To understand our style in detail checks out our website and social media pages.
Q. 3 What is the candid wedding photography and what is traditional wedding photography?
Answer: Candid photography is capturing truly candid moments of the wedding. It is an unobtrusive way of capturing the moments from an event. Our candid photographs will show you all the emotions and rituals through pictures that are artistically composed and fantastically edited.
We refer traditional photography as group shots, posed shots and all the guests’ shots. Traditional photography is the contemporary way of photography.
We make sure that you get a mix of both candid and traditional photos from all the events. Both the forms of photography are different and unique in their own ways.
Q. 4 What is the size of your crew?
Answer: Each wedding is different and unique in its own way. We understand your requirements first and then assign an ideal team composition for the coverage. The crew size also depends on your requirements and the deliverables you expect from us. More often than not, we shoot in a team of three photographers and three cinematographers.

Q. 12 What is a wedding film? Wedding cinematography? Wedding highlights?
Answer: Wedding films are handcrafted movies from your wedding.
A cinematic wedding teaser is generally a 4 to 5-minute film. This is your wedding trailer for online sharing. It is a nice synopsis of all the events power packed into a small trailer video. We also make full films or highlight movies for your wedding.
A cinematic highlight wedding movie of 20 to 25 minutes usually depends on the footage. In this movie, all the events are nicely shot, edited in chronological order, interwoven into a story format by using the testimony from the bride and groom, family, and friends. We are open to any other deliverable that you want from us. Each deliverable has a different cost attached to it. Do get in touch with us to understand the pricing better.
Q. 13 How do you choose tracks/songs for wedding films?
Answer: Selecting songs for the movie is the trickiest part of making the video. We are very particular with each song that is used. When we edit the video, our editing team goes through the entire footage thoroughly and comes with their shortlists of songs according to the footage, event type, and theme of the event. We are also open to your suggestions and personal favorites that you want us to use. We mutually decide on the songs that go for final editing. We do not entertain a change in songs once we have finalized it.
