FAQs Candid Wedding Photographer

What is your photography style weddings?

What I try to shoot is a fun mix of Candid Shots as well as Posed shots , basically a Creative and Photo journalistic approach and Story telling flow of photographs is what you get , I try to focus primarily on the Bride-Groom , the Family and few close friends , I try to get as much of the Candid moments , the laughter , the naughtiness and the hungama around as much as I can and this is always fun.

Do you give any wedding services?

We provide complete wedding package solutions, whether it is pre- wedding shoots, candid photography, traditional wedding photography, or wedding films.

What is the Difference between Candid Photography and Traditional Photography?

Candid Photography is the latest trend running in the market. In this type of Shoot, candid photographers capture special moments without asking for poses; hence, they look more attractive, creative, and beautiful.

Traditional Photography is also known as conventional Photography, where the photographer asks you to look at the camera and requests for some poses to capture them. It is ideal for documenting the entire event.

Our executives can provide you the samples of both styles of Photography.

What type of equipment do you use for pre wedding photography and videos?

The camera is only an instrument to help them take pictures or film. However, we use Canon 5 D Mark-IV as our main camera. We also use a variety of Canon L Series Lenses, mostly prime lenses.

Also we have other Cameras which are also used such as 5D Mark – III and 6D Mark – II. We also use Drones for Video and other supporting gear like Gimbles, etc,.

We use portable lighting setup of Godox, Elinchrom equipped with the latest technology.

What is your cancellation policy For Pre-Wedding Shoots?

After the booking is confirmed, we block our dates for your work contract, cancelling it would affect our business. We would be charging 50% of the total amount as our cancellation charges.

I find the rates of Candid photographers to be expensive. Do you offer discounts Pre Wedding Shoots?

Nothing beautiful comes easy. If it were easy, everyone would do it. Good quality Candid/photojournalistic photography is hard. The immense amount of hardwork happening behind the scenes, is usually hidden. The number of balls in the air that we juggle to pull out what we do is scary! Trust us on this. The price is fair.

I think our prices are reasonable enough considering how much effort I put into each assignment.  Also I always try to give you best when I can , and try to over deliver , So please no negotiations 🙂

Is the quality/amount of the output negotiable for you ? If yes then surely we can help you. In case you wish to modify any of our packages / change the amount / duration of any service / change the quantity of the output then packages are always negotiable.

Do note that in certain cases we may suggest you alternate quality / duration of output to go with the pricing.

I try my best to give you extra value for your price , when you ask for quote I will try my best to give you the best prices I can offer , after I let you know of the Final Price , there should be no negotiations or bargaining , I have a strict No-Bargain Policy , I just don’t accept / forward the assignments of people who try to bargain , I keep updating my prices from time to time and try to keep it reasonable as I believe that there is no discount for hard work and so our prices should be respected.

What is the procedure for choosing photographs? Can I select the photos?

After the shoot is done , I will do primary sorting of photos almost each day and by the end of the assignment I will give you my selection of photos , My selections will be 80% of the photos and the rest of the photos will be selected by you (These includes photos of important persons whose we might have missed during initial selection).

Can you customise the Wedding Package according to our budget?

Yes we do customise the wedding packages according to the budget but we look to it to be feasible to us without compromising the quality of our work.

Do you charge an extra amount for the weddings that you do outstation?

No, we do not charge any additional amount for weddings done outstation. The charges are same all over. The scape of the photography industry has change, and we believe that everyone has the equal right to access of great services, irrespective of location. But like all other photography teams across the world, the travel and accommodation is provided for by the client. This is an industry standard.

But in all outstation weddings, the photography team loses a day or two just travelling back and forth. We do not charge extra for that. So it kind of gets adjust with the travel expenses and the accommodation expenses.

Do you undertake Pre-wedding shoots outside Bangalore?

Yes, we work all over India and the prices remain same irrespective of the shoot location. However for outstation shoots, we take booking minimum two sessions. There will also be additional cost for travel, food and stay. Please call up for a discussion in case you are looking for a shoot outside Bangalore.

Can I customise my pre wedding shoot?

Most definitely you can. We love working with couples who would like to involve into the pre wedding shoot. This brings out the photographs and the video of the prewedding shoot amazingly well.

Do you do only Candid photography or do you provide traditional photography too?

We do provide traditional photography & Videography. And we have tie ups with good traditional shooters, who shoot with the best equipment & are trained by us, to shoot in a more photo-journalistic way, yet do a standard coverage of the wedding. We do not randomly outsource our traditional work. It is our goal to provide you with quality services in all that we provide.

Do you provide all the photos from Wedding Shoots?

We love keeping our couples happy but we also care about the quality of the pictures and hence, we process all the images before delivering it to the client. Once clicked, we process them, eliminating test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions, duplicate images, and other images that may affect the final product. We give you all the technically correct images once the work contract is complete on Google Drive or on a DVD.

A lot depends on the location, people, lighting, crowd, structure of mandap etc, time, attitude of the couple and so on and so forth.

What if I feel that the Pre-wedding Shoot done was not as per my expectations built up after I saw images on the Facebook page/website.

Photography consists of a few elements that need to come together in perfect unison to create stunning images, elements beyond the camera and the skill of the photographer. You can read of them in the link posted in the previous answer. If these elements do not come together, as well, it affects the image quality.
You cannot control all of these elements, but work with us on the above mentioned points, and your pictures will be awesome. Rest assured, we will do everything within our physical and mental abilities to take the most extraordinary pictures on your wedding day.

Who does the copyright of all the images taken on the wedding day belong to?

By general law, copyright of an image belongs to the person who takes it using his/her camera. In the case of wedding pictures that are paid for, there is shared copyright ownership of the photographs between the person clicking it & the person paying for the photographs. That being said, we never use wedding pictures that we take for any other purpose other than showcasing our work on our website & social media. And there too, we use it with copyright watermarks.
