WHAT IS CANDID PHOTOGRAPHY?
Candid Photography is not about standing 50 meters away and taking a telescopic lens and firing away, nor is it about taking innumerable portraits with various kinds of blurred backgrounds.
I believe candid is about capturing the right moment, just when your mom gave you that sad yet happy smile seeing you dressed as bride, that unsaid tear in the daddys heart pouring out from his eyes, the heartfelt and spontaneous blessings coming from your friends and relatives, silly moments, tired moments and outpouring moments. Capturing these without staging them is what is candid is.
I do not intervene in any activity just to take a picture (non intrusive). I let the day unfold spontaneously around you and with my knowledge of naunces if traditions Iam well alert to freeze the moments as they transpire.
I have covered a wide variety of Indian weddings numbering over 50 and am best equipped to capture the emotions that flow during the weddings with quiet ease and aplomb.
The pictures that have been displayed on this website as well as facebook and other websites demonstrate the my passion towards photography in general and wedding photography in particular.
I bring years of professional experience in handling projects and treat our clients no differently than I would treat a corporate client. I set expectations with my clients and communicate very clearly and effectively so that there are no surprises from either side (client or us).
I try to be most of the time near and around the bride and groom. Its like becoming your additional pair of eyes so that you enjoy your day and I capture those moments for you to cherish for the lifetime.
Iam around the place to capture those intimate moments you will have with your friends and family without my presence being known.
I do not manipulate photos other than some basic minor colour related corrections. By and large the photograph is made while I click and NOT at the computer.
What is it going to cost?
Each wedding is different and so are the events involved. So we cannot have a one size fits all package. Pricing starts from INR 50,000 for a straight eight hours of work. The final pricing depends on number of days, events, total number of hours we will be spending with you etc. Contact us with your itinerary and we shall give you the best price.
The pricing will always be inclusive of:
The albums are designed with a minimalistic style. Each sheet will not have no more than 3 pictures. Mostly we like to do the image telling the story hence will be devoid of any kind of embellishments.
Backgrounds will be plain black or white which will be decided by us. We will put up the storyboard and will give you one iteration of changes to upto 10 pictures. Album process typically takes 4 weeks to get it together and a week for printing.
Each & every pic of ours you took(including Laxman for Reception) were lovely and superbb. Candidness was re-defined truly. We sincerely loved the pics including all my family members. And Seriously you guys have done a great Job again thanks a lot as the pics would be a masterpiece of art for me to cherish those memories -Prateek Gupta

Should I hire Traditional Photographers?
During the events I am focused in capturing the emotions and the action moments of a particular scene and hence might not be able to capture the posed groups pictures of friends and family.
I do ask you to introduce to us your core family members in advance and try to do my best to ensure that they get captured in my frames but beyond that, for me, the unfolding drama will take precedence over the posed shots.
So if photographic coverage of all the guests is important to you, we suggest you hire the services of conventional photographer. By hiring a conventional photographer(s) you can ensure that both sides of the family are covered.
As candid wedding photographers our attention is drawn to where the action and interactions are. Hence I cannot go and seek individuals out and capture their pictures just to ensure there is a balance in coverage. Please bear in mind that significant percent of my shots are candid (not posed).
Lot of parents are still new to this concept of pure candid coverage hence it is advisable for the bride and groom to sit down and have a discussion with them.
Do you provide complete photography and video services?
I prefer to provide candid photography services only.
Should you want me to hire conventional services I can outsource the job so some folks whom I work well with but I take no responsibility of their outcome or services or their deliveries. You have the option to negotiate with them directly or hire other folks of your choice. I will only facilitate this service should you require. You should discuss your accurate needs with them for their correct pricing too.
