Q. What is candid photography? Do you shoot such?
A. Firstly, let me tell you that are many versions for the meaning of candid photography. Few people(who claim themselves as candid photographers) say we like shooting only with the ambient light or the available light without external light of flashes, also say we concentrate only on the bride and groom leaving the family, friends and other guests at the event. And deny for group shots which in my opinion can be shot candidly. So now I will explain my version or my style of candid photography. In my opinion candid photography is capturing true expression and emotions of any person or group present at the event with or without their consciousness also with or without external lights, for which the picture is technically and aesthetically correct. And yes we do candid photography and we are doing it from past 20 years.

Q. What are your wedding photography assignment times?
A. 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 over schedule at times. When this happens, it would be outright blackmail for the photographer to threaten to pack up unless paid extra. Rest assured, this won’t happen – and we will be available for you as long as needed. We usually charge by the day – with the assumption being that a regular day runs into 08-10 hours. We do charge extra however, if your ceremonies are scheduled very late into the night (like 4 am pheras) which are treated as the next day. What are your wedding photography assignment times?

We will continue to work with you and revisit our shortlist to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the final selection of What happens if I’m not happy, and feel that a part of my wedding is not represented enough?

To us, the couple is the most important – and we will leave no stone unturned to make sure you’re satisfied.
Q. Who owns the usage rights to my wedding images? What is a personal rights release, and who owns the copyright?
A. Along with the assignment, you own the full usage rights to your wedding photos for non-commercial use. Legal jargon aside, that means you can do whatever you want with your wedding photos (like making more albums, taking prints, sending them out to relatives, sharing them online and what have you). The only thing you cannot do is resell your wedding images – which I am sure you will not want to do! As the photographer, we will own the ‘copyright’ to the photographs, which means we own the author rights to the photograph.
Q. Will you be using the final wedding photos in your portfolio and on your social media channels?
A. What if we do not want that? We may! If your wedding results in terrific wedding photos (and we am 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 from your wedding. Should you specifically NOT want us to disclose your wedding photos on our personal channels, let us know before hand. There is no official policy on how to approach these situations, and there may be a middle ground we can work out.
Q. 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.
Q. How much in advance do we need to book you?
A. It really depends on the date you are getting married. Many times we get booked upto one year before the wedding date. Especially there are some hot dates (dates with a good Muharat) on which we have multiple enquiries that are made. If we are booked out on a date, we don’t take on other clients. Hence it is always better to book us as early as possible. Its the same as you would book an in demand hall, caterer or a DJ. The sooner the better.
We do take up last minute bookings too, if we are free. So do check with us anyways.
Q. How do we book you? How do we pay the booking amount?
A. We only consider a wedding booked, when you have pay a minimum of 50% of the amount of the package in advance. If you have verbally asked us to hold a date, we will intimate you for enquiries for your date that come afterwards, before we give out the date to someone else. If you want to cancel, you need to do it and the amount you have paid in advance becomes non-refundable. The rest of the amount you have to give us as soon as your assignment is winded up.
Q. Do you have an agreement of terms and conditions when the wedding is booked?
A. Yes, we do have an agreement of terms and conditions when a wedding is booked. Signed copies of this agreement are kept with us as well as the client, when the booking is made. If you are going ahead with booking us after speaking to us, we will provide you the terms & conditions and explain the same in the meeting too. The terms & conditions both protect the client as well as the photographer, are fair & tested over time.
Q. Who edits the photographs you take?
A. We ourselves do! the founders! Yup. We tried hiring people and tried outsourcing the work. But no one puts in themselves into a project, as the owner of it. Anyone else but us editing the images just doesn’t make the cut. Naah, it just doesn’t.
Q. What will our first conversation be like?
A. As I said earlier, I’ve been a photojournalist. I see weddings like an embedded journalist. That’s why my work is often referred to as Embedded Wedding photography . That’s what the media calls my work too. In short, I try to camouflage myself at a wedding and shoot like an insider (I could be mistaken for your cousin with the camera). So that’s why I want to connect with you – the couple – in advance, to get to know you both, your story, your likes, your dislikes, something about your family and friends. This enables me to capture the most important thing at your wedding – intimacy. What good is candidness without intimacy, right? So our conversations will be largely centered around the points that I mentioned above. And yes, we will also discuss the business side of the wedding photography too – your budget, your requirements, my quotes, and so on. To make this easier, I will share a questionnaire in advance for you to fill it up before our chat.
Q. I am at abroad now but I am based out of India, how do I make the payment with you guys?
A. A good chunk of our clientele includes NRIs, and we prefer that you can arrange for wire transfer to book us.
Q. What is the difference between CANDID and TRADITIONAL Wedding photography?
The Candid wedding photographer captures a wedding as it is. No one is asked to pose, no one is asked to stand and smile the way it is apt for photography. Moments and events and emotions are captured from the behind, you just wouldn’t know we have clicked you with all your best expressions. The rituals aren’t interrupted; people’s smiles aren’t crafted and perfected. We will just let you be your best self, and we will poke our lens right through your moments without you knowing there is a camera roll behind. Learn more about CANDID PHOTOGRAPHY
Traditional wedding photography is the complete opposite of Candid Photography. We try to create an album out of your wedding then and there. We will ask you to pose and smile and weave expressions. A lot of things about your wedding photography are staged. Which is also a good thing because you decide what should be clicked, and shouldn’t be
clicked? The order of the wedding is categorically captured, the ‘sequence’ of people gifting you is thoroughly shot, and the photography throughout the event is ‘consistent’. It’s not flashy, it’s very straight forward, and very studio-ish, so you will know what to expect in your wedding album.
