Recommended by a wedding planner friend, we got TPL to shoot our engagement. The next day (to everyone’s delight) we received a beautifully selected collection of photos shot by Harsh! What I love about the photos – Harsh captured moments. When I looked at some photos, my reaction was wow, did that really happen!? He slowed down and paused what seemed to be a fleeting moment. What I love about TPL – quick delivery of photos, extremely responsive, made me feel extremely comfortable, very easy to be around. I definitely recommend TPL for not only wedding shoots, but any photographic… Read more »

They take feedback, understand what the bride & groom really have in mind, and bring out that vibe! They never come in your way at the functions, yet capture every beautiful moment! They deliver super fast! And always beyond expectations! We loved their work especially the candid

We were doing our research for choosing the photographers to capture our wedding day. A close friend suggested The Photo Lab as Harsh was one of the photographers at their wedding, and they were happy with his work. Trusting our friend, we decided to contact Harsh. We were very impressed with his professionalism. The wedding pictures and the short film were beyond our expectations. Harsh, Devansh and Vinit have done a fabulous job! The Photo Lab is a team of young professionals who are experts at what they do. I strongly recommend them.

Harsh and his team of photographers and videographers at The Photo Lab are extremely talented individuals. Their candid shots are true, unadulterated memories of our wedding and I thank them profusely for capturing the best moments during the event.

The video, underlined by apt music, brings out the excitement and happiness of our families throughout the wedding. I have only received great compliments from everyone who has seen their content.

We are grateful to The Photo Lab for accommodating all our requests and delivering content that will be cherished for a lifetime.

Would definitely recommend them to everyone who’s looking for a super creative and cool team who can not just get along with you but also your family.
They are thorough professionals and yet so easy to work with.
They captured our journey right from the start (Roka) to the Wedding Day. We are not very camera-friendly people but they made us so comfortable and made the whole experience of getting clicked so easy for us. It was such a delight to see all the pictures in the end!


Wedding Photographers & Filmmakers

Weddings are one of the most important occasions in couples' lives, and are marked by meaningful ceremonies and festivities. And years later, the wedding albums and videos help keep your memories alive. That's why wedding photography plays a major role in creatively capturing all the moments which you can relive later.

We, at WeddingSutra, help you select the best wedding photographers and videographers according to your preferred style and budget. Classified under the category of WeddingSutra Favorites, our list of handpicked photographers and videographers will make sure all your special moments are captured and creatively converted into beautiful memories.

TYPES OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Candid Photography

With no poses or staged shots, candid photography is all about capturing pictures that reflect spontaneity and a 'hidden camera' vibe. Clicked without asking the bride, groom or guests to strike poses or making them conscious, this type of photography captures emotions like laughter, tears, happiness, and surprise in their rawest forms. Candid clicks are relatively new and slightly more expensive, but they have become one of the most popular types of wedding photography in India now.

Traditional Photography

As the name suggests, traditional photography is the oldest and most conventional way of capturing wedding pictures. Requiring the bride and groom to pose for pictures along with their families and guests, traditional photography is more cost-effective than its candid counterpart and tends to be preferred by elders in the family.

Cinematic Videography

The video form of candid photography, cinematic wedding films capture the candid and unposed moments of your wedding as they happen. Focussing primarily on the little details of the wedding that usually go unnoticed, cinematic videos aim to create a 'movie' out of your wedding with scenes shot by high-end devices like professional cameras and drones. A visual treat for viewers, these 15-20 minute cinematic videos come packaged with brilliant sound effects, background music and skillful editing.

Traditional Videography

A video run-down of your wedding, traditional wedding videos are a three to four hour recording of everything that happened at your wedding. With a bland and relatively slow narrative, traditional videography is cheaper as it does not require high-end equipment or very creative editing skills.

Pre-wedding Photography & Videography

Shot against picturesque backdrops, and capturing the love and excitement of a to-be-wed couple, pre-wedding photography and videography are a rage with millennial couples. Depending on the length of the video, shoot locations and quality desired, many photographers provide custom pre-wedding packages to couples with varying prices.

TIPS TO HIRE THE BEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS

Clueless about how to zoom in on the right wedding photographer for your needs and budget? Here are a few tips on how you can find a professional lensman you can click with.

  • Finalize your budget first. Having clarity on the amount you want to spend on wedding albums, pre-wedding shoots and videos will help you narrow down the options. However, be ready to negotiate to get the best deal available.
  • Research well. Study the different themes and styles of wedding photos you want and make a wish list of your preferences.
  • Once you know your needs and the budget is fixed, look for photographers who fulfil your requirements
  • Shortlist and contact four or five photographers and request quotations from them.
  • Book your selected photographer(s) well in advance to avoid losing out on your favourite options. You can book separate photographers for different shoots. However, if you have good chemistry with one, we recommend you stick to them.
  • Write to us if you have any questions, and get help from our erudite experts.

THINGS TO DISCUSS WITH YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS BEFORE SEALING THE DEAL

  • Brief them well about your requirements. Show them references of the 'must-have' pictures for you and what they can avoid.
  • Inform them of various aspects of your wedding celebrations: How many functions are being held, their timings and venues, duration, key people to capture, and so on.
  • Be clear about the final amount you'll be paying, including all the taxes and overhead charges like transportation.
  • Discuss all the deliverables in advance to avoid any ambiguity or misunderstanding on the day of the shoot or post-production.
  • Ask your photography team about the props they will be providing or need, and mention if you need anything specifically in relation to a certain theme.
  • Do not forget to mention your pre-wedding shoot and check if they would like to provide you with a cost-effective deal including both your pre-wedding and wedding coverage.
