How To Choose A Wedding Photographer For Your Indian Wedding !!!

By Krishana Chauhan | 13-11-2018

At First Glance, It Might Seem That All Candid Photographers Shoot Pretty Much The Same Candid Shots Of The Wedding! But If You Spend Some Time Browsing The Images, The Differences Will Become Obvious. Some Are Great At Capturing Movement; Some Excel At Capturing Stolen Glances And Coy Smiles; Some Others Are Great At Shooting At Night And Others Lend A Very Artistic Feel To The Pictures.

It Might Be Difficult But Try To Meet With The Photographers Before You Book Them For Your Wedding. Think About It, This Person Is Going To Be Capturing Some Of The Most Important Moments Of Your Life And There Will Be Some Posed Shots. You Need Someone Who Is More Of A Friend That Brings Out The Best In You Rather Than An Army Sergeant Barking Orders At You.

All The Photographers On TSD Have Been Around For A While And Are Great At What They Do. However, This Does Not Mean That You Relinquish All Control Over How You Want Your Pictures To Look. Speak To Your Photographer And Tell Them What You Are Looking For. There Could Be Pinterest Shots That You Want To Recreate (They Might Need To Get Additional Lighting For It). There Could Be Certain Relatives Or Friends You Want To Be Featured More Than Others In The Pictures. There Might Even Be Wedding Moments That You Don’t Want Captured (I Did Not Want Any Pictures Of Myself Crying). Respect Their Advice And Expertise But Make Sure You Leave Your Mark On Those Pictures.  


Do You Want The Photographer To Cover All Your Functions? Do You Want Him To Focus On Just The Wedding And Reception? Candid Photographers Don’t Come Cheap And Unless You Have An Unlimited Budget For Your Wedding, You Need To Give This Some Thought. You Could Opt For A Lesser Known Candid Photographer For The Smaller Functions And Save The More Expensive Ones For The Wedding And Reception. (We Have Picked Out Some Fantastic People For Each Type Of Budget :

Perhaps You Could Get The Amateur Photographers Amongst Your Friends And Family To Help Out During The Smaller Events.  


We All Have Our Heart Set On Certain Things. But Sometimes Life Does Not Go The Way We Expect It To. It Could Happen That The Photographer That You Want To Shoot Your Wedding Has Prior Commitments. It Is Not The End Of The World! Really.  Browse Through Our Associated Photographers And You Will Find Enough Photographers To Go Around! Always Have At Least Three Photographers Of The Same Caliber On Your Shortlist. In This Way, You Won’t Be Disappointed If Your First Choice Is Not Available.


Here Is A Small Step By Step Checklist For You To Choose Your Photographer:


Step 1: Browse Our Gallery Of  Recommended Photographers

Step 2: Short List 3-4 Based On Whose Photos You Like And The Price Range That Seems Affordable .We Recommend You Dont Filter By City. Think About It- Photography Is A Big Expense , And These Guys Travel Everywhere So A 10,000 Rs Flight Ticket Is Totally Worth It To Pay If Anyway You Are Hiring The Photographer Of Your Dreams

Step 3: Check Out Their Facebook Pages And Websites

Step 4: Speak To Them Over The Phone To Understand Their Packages And How Comfortable You Feel With Them.



Make Sure To Ask Them-

  • How Many Photographers They Bring
  • Do They Also Do Regular Shots Apart From Just Candid Ones Or Can They Tie You Up With A Studio Guy To Do Those
  • How Many Photos Can You Expect In Your Wedding Film
  • Do They Bring Their Own Lighting Equipment
  • Do They Also Do Albums
  • Can They Help In Getting A Videographer

Step 5: Help Them Understand What You Need From Them For Example:

  • I Want A Pre Bridal Shoot Included In The Package
  • I Want Bridal Room, Getting Ready Shots For Bride And Groom Both
  • I Want A Photo-Booth
  • I Want A Post Bridal Shoot
  • I Want A Family Portrait Of The Entire Extended Family

Step 6: If By Now Your Photographer Is Not Ready To Kill You With The Barrage Of Questions, Congratulations! You Have Found Your Star ! Yes Ladies, Choosing Photographers Is A Lot More Complicated That Just Picking Up The Phone And Booking Their Calendars. You Might Wonder Why You Need To Go Through This Long Drawn Out Process. But Think About It, When The Dances Have Been Danced, The Songs Have Been Sung And Your Lehenga Has Been Packed Away; What Is It That Remains? It Will Be The Laughter, The Tears And Those Stolen Glances That Have Been Eternalized By The Men And Women Behind The Lens.
