I had been following Arjun's work for a number of years and had decided on him to photograph my wedding well before a wedding or a groom was on the horizon. It was easy to reach him over email and then over phone. We had detailed conversations on how each event would go, which parties would be involved in each event etc. Each of these conversations was very smooth, clear and friendly. I appreciate the clarity he gave me on payment schedules, requirements, things he would do, things he wouldn't do, and the final deliverables. During the event, I found him and his team very professional, Read More punctual, detailed and non-disruptive to guests, other vendors or the events in progress (which was important to me because I wanted the wedding to remain a solemn and family event, and not be a ritual staged for the cameras). The output, as expected, were exceptional. It captured the mood of each event exceptionally well and was lauded by everyone who saw the photographs. Everyone particularly appreciated the candid photographs of the bridal parties and friends; these photographs were so beautifully cued/directed by Arjun that each one of us felt free to be our natural selves and let our love and friendship show on camera. Our wedding was rescheduled because Covid-related lockdowns at the last moment and there were a lot of moving things, indecision and changes arising out of the developing situation. Arjun was so kind in understanding our situation, so genuinely caring to check on our covid-afflicted families' health and ultimately so patient with the rescheduling that having him on board for the wedding seemed like a blessing. The outstanding quality of the photographs was almost expected from him given the consistency he shows in all his projects, but I am grateful for the consideration he showed during those Covid-uncertain times and even the conversations we had when Covid had sucked out all the joy out of this wedding. Glad to be on the other side of the wedding now and unequivocally recommending Arjun to anyone looking for a great photographer to capture their once-in-a-lifetime memories.
