Why do I keep recommending Elements Celebration Resorts my budget clients for pre wedding photoshoot?
One of the most common questions which every couple before their pre wedding photoshoot or post wedding photoshoot asks me is: Which place would you recommend for a days shoot in Bangalore? and my first response would be Elements resorts for photoshoot.
ALRIGHT, I’VE BEEN USING THIS PHOTOGRAPHY RESORT FOR ABOUT 7 AND A HALF YEARS NOW. I have literally seen the changes made at Elements resort, most of them positive like addition of big size props for Photography and simple things like addition of a free RO water. There are two managers there, an old man and a newly appointed (6 months) lady who comes in by 8 30 am. There is a gardener/Watchman who has been here since the start I guess. Most of the negative reviews you see on Google or elsewhere about this resort most of them are about the complaints against the managers rude behavior. Everything else is just for Elements being the best boon for Bangalore Photographers.
Edit (08/12/2023): The no of staff in the resort has increased and has been more professional than before now. I think Elements resort has one of the most widely used garden space resort Available in Bangalore as of this moment with props, gazebos, villa and a pool and a hour of evening lighting.
Few years back, I think from 2020 they’ve given out a small space to a caterer to run a canteen from there, which is in a way a blessing for few of us who are in a hurry and can’t really afford to spend 60-90 minutes driving down to the nearby expensive MTR for their breakfast or Lunch which is opposite Sri Ravi Shankar Ashram. Obviously there is no comparison of the availability of food and it’s taste between the two, but surprisingly it is still decent and quite to the liking of few of my colleagues.
SOME SUGGESTIONS TO GET THE MOST OUT OF THE ELEMENTS RESORT :
1. Asking the manager to clean the pool
2. Getting the villa open
3. Making sure the room ac works
4. Getting the water filled on the top gazebo garden.
5. Getting the center fountain cleaned
6. Knowing where the light points are
COMING TO MY FEW POINTERS: One of the only Photography place which opens by 6 a.m. Not very far from Bangalore. About 20 odd kilometers from JP Nagar, Bangalore. Food availability is now no problem as there is a canteen in place. A decent size room for changing costumes, or makeup and a small rest room. If you plan well, you can complete your pre wedding photoshoot, maternity photoshoot here in less than 6 hours. I have actually done over 20 pre wedding videos in the full day package including Photography. Lots of big size backgrounds and large props to use. They have also started to rent small props for about Ra.400/- to 600/-
Edit: One of the best thing the management has done is make the mud road a concrete road. A lot of going to be mothers would be happy about it. Elements is now present in couple of other cities as well. Elements resort Bangalore recently also opened up on the Baby shoot with decent 5-6 backdrops. They have also started providing costumes. The number of backdrops also has increased. There are around 8-10 options as of now in 2023 for photoshoot resorts in Bangalore which was only 1 back in 2017. So yeah photographers have other options and new backdrops available and there could be a time when Elements Resorts will have to go on a renovation to be the no.1 spot of being a photography resort.
