Frequently Asked Questions

We capture the story of your wedding through beautiful visuals. We shoot photos & videos using small yet powerful cameras that give us the freedom to move around freely. This way we are almost invisible to the people and able to capture purely natural moments, as unobtrusively as possible.

Where are you based? 2017-06-12T14:09:02+00:00

We live in Nagpur but love to travel anywhere in India or abroad.

How much time do you take to deliver? 2017-06-12T14:09:20+00:00

The usual delivery time is 10-15 weeks. We really want to deliver everything as soon as possible but we have a very extensive post production process for both photographs and films. We want to give you the best of the best, please be patient with us!

Do you take posed photographs? 2017-06-12T14:09:34+00:00

Though the intention is to capture your wedding in the most natural way and the focus will remain on the documentary style of shooting, we don’t mind taking a few posed shots of the couple and family here and there.

What is the length of the film? 2017-06-12T14:09:46+00:00

For a 3-day wedding celebration, we recommend 20-30 minutes long film along with a short 4-5 minutes wedding trailer, but you can take a call on that. Just keep in mind that since we do not shoot continuously (except for speeches and family performance), there is a limit to the length of the film that we provide. We want to keep it crisp, something that you can watch again & again without getting bored.

Do you publish all your work online? 2017-06-12T14:09:58+00:00

Of course! That is how you have found us right? We are artists and we do like to show off the amazing work our team does. Sometimes the posts may get delayed when we are caught up with shoots and edits. But we do update our website, Facebook & Instagram pages as and when we can. We like to showcase selected photographs from each wedding in the form of story on our website along with a short teaser. Our Instagram feed is full of live updates whenever we are at a shoot. You can find the links to follow our work on the top corner of our website

Yes, we do. We like to be the only team shooting the event from both sides.

Any amateur/professional photographer who has a different style of shooting might hold us back from doing what we are best at.

It not only depends on the number of hours of shooting and number of people shooting but also on things like location, time of the year etc. To maintain the quality of our work, we do not take up too many weddings per season.

What is the number of photographs we get? Can I get all the RAW files? 2017-06-12T14:14:01+00:00

We do get this question a lot. We don’t give RAW photographs. We feel a RAW file is only a half work done and you have not hired us for doing that. But the number of photographs we give is a lot. A very rough estimate would be final ready to print 500-1000 images per day. We only remove photographs that our repetitive, out of focus or without content. Trust your photographer with the selection and post production.

Can I receive photographs both in color and black & white? 2017-06-12T14:14:38+00:00

Photographs that are given in black & white are meant to be that way. If you like more colored photographs do let us know beforehand.
