Freely ask queestions

Here I’ve tried to write up a comprehensive list of answers to questions you may have (and even those you don’t yet know you will have) about how we work.

Do you travel outside India for weddings?

Yes of course I’ll travel to virtually any part of the earth you need me to. All out of town commissions will attract extra costs for travel, accommodation and car hire when needed.

What cameras do you use?

I use professional Nikon DSLR cameras, coupled with several top of the range professional lenses, and a host of lighting gear and modifiers.

Do you have insurance?

Yes I have a 7-figure liability insurance, which can be provided for any venue that requires it.

How soon do we need to reserve our date?

As soon as possible. This year I’ve had quite a number of brides book me almost six months in advance.

Do you offer off-season and weekday discounts?

Sometimes I have discounted prices depending on my schedules and availability.

How will we reserve our wedding date?

Once I receive your signed contract and your retainer, your date is then fully reserved, and we will not accept any other clients for that date. The balance will be due at least a week prior to the wedding date.

Can we pay part before and part after the wedding?

No, I’m afraid not. All payment must be received in full before the date.

What happens after the booking?

I’ll then start pre wedding consultations leading up to the day. Further, if included in your package, a date is arranged for the pre wedding/engagement session. This is also an opportunity for me to get to know a bit more about you.

We live out of town, how will this affect our consultations?

While I would love to meet up before the day, busy schedules and distance may prevent that. However all decisions can he handled remotely. Then again I could meet with your trusted friends or relatives if necessary.

Where and when will the pre wedding/engagement shoot take place?

It’ll normally take place somewhere in your locality. Preferably at some place that holds some special meaning to you. Ideally due to having to shoot events over the weekend, most of our engagement sessions take place during the week. But sometimes I do manage to arrange a weekend shoot.

Do you provide video services as well?

No I’m afraid not. I like to concentrate on what we do best. But I’ve a videography team with a few talented videographer. They are well known about about their own business.

Do you charge extra for travel and hotel accommodation?

Yes. If the location is over an hours drive from my address, and photography is expected to start quite early, also if the event finishes at unsuitable hours, and is further than an hours drive from Durgapur, then reasonable overnight accommodation will be charged at cost.
