Contact Waseem F Ahmed

Hey! I am Waseem. A photographer by chance, a die-hard Formula One fan and an Architect by education. 
My photography is through Made in Mono - a team of Destination & Celebrity wedding photographers which I have co-founded. It features a line-up of handpicked and trained amazing people who share the same passion for capturing love as I do. We love exploring different cultures and traditions, and have shot more than 650 weddings globally, specialising in South Asian weddings and Indian weddings in particular.  
My 11 year journey includes shooting weddings for several celebrities including international sportspersons, cricketers, actors and their families. Most notably, the Indian superstar RajiniKanth himself! 
We have won multiple awards, including Wedding Photographer of the Year, 2019 from WPA India. We have been featured extensively in the leading bridal and wedding blogs in the industry. Our biggest achievement however, is to walk out of every wedding capturing memories, and through our work - friendships, that last a lifetime and more.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I ma based our Chennai, India. My travel and accommodation are usually taken care of by the client. I only expect basic, fuss-free travel and accomodation options, and will be willing to work out the best options for both our sides.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

11 years of shooting weddings. I have shot more than 650 weddings till date as the main photographer.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My style has been constantly evolving over the years. Right now, I have reached a place where more than a style, my priority is to give the couple priceless, timeless images. I believe in keeping a neutral style that will be still be relevant and be fresh even over the course of the next 30 to 40 years perhaps. Head on over to my Instagram page to have a look!

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

We have two studios / meeting spaces in Chennai. We get in touch through Skype and have several video calls over the course of the journey.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I am an Architect, a non-practising one (Due to my love for photography) But the values of design it has taught me have been incredibly helpful to me and has helped develop a certain refinement that is seen in my photography.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

Easy to work with!  
I pride myself on being a very easy person to work with and understand that your wedding day is precious to you. My team and I will work with you into the finest details, right through to make your big day perfect!

We had an amazing experience working with Waseem and his team of photographers. Considering the situation with COVID-19, it was never easy to finalise events and such. But all through the changes in event schedules, venues, Waseem and his team were very patient with us and offered to help whenever we needed it.

They were meticulous in planning in advance for the events and how they would shoot the same. They knew exactly what they wanted and guided us in choosing our decorations, stage set up and lighting all while keeping in mind how to capture this landmark event in the best way Read More possible. Very, very punctual in being present not just for the event itself but for the prep as well. Managed to capture all the important moments in a way that was never intruding into the going on the event itself. All in all, we, the couple and our families are very happy and thoroughly impressed with Waseem and his team. We would definitely recommend them to photograph and capture your event. In our very honest opinion, they do a special job. Hats off to Team MadeInMono.
Never seen a more friendly photographer than Waseem :) Was really friendly and his shots speak a story.  
His frames, color tone is a specialty in itself:) Have become a big fan of his photography and would definitely recommend my friends and family to go with him for any occasions:)
Please choose Waseem as your photographer now! We had the honour of having Waseem at our wedding and he was the best! From a beautiful couple shoot on the beach to every raw emotion and exciting moment during the festivities, he captured it all. He made it work for us, and incorporated all our requests. 
Not only the photos but also our videos tell our story and still bring back every feeling from our wedding day. Waseem is truly talented and captured our moments with extreme artistic flair. Thanks for the mindblowing photos and the level of comfort you made us feel!
