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

I am in Wedding Photography business for 13 years now and I have done 500+ weddings.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Indian weddings are the most colourful and emotive, I give importance to Candid moments, Getting ready shots, Couple shots Rituals. I envision how my clients will see the moments after 15 - 20 years hence. As times are changing so are the ways how wedding events are made. One may not find the same methods, attires, etc as the shelf life for any designs are very limited, hence its important to record every detail as the events are conducted

For a days work - comprising of two sessions, I charge Rs. 40, 000. About USD 600. This is for Photography
