Can't wait to hear from you.
What is your date of Establishment?
I've been working as a part-time photographer since 2-3 years. Working as a full time photographer since one and a half year.
How far in advance should clients book your services?
It's never too early to book. Bookings happen 1 year in advance as well. So go ahead and book your day.

50% retainer or advance and a signed contract are necessary to confirm the booking. I can send e-contract as well :)

If in case there happen to be a cancellation, retainers made for a wedding booking can be transferred to other portrait or other services or products offered. The retainer will remain as a 1 year credit toward a wedding/birthday/anniversary photo session, as per my availability.
Why choose me?
I believe a wedding day is Your day. It's all about you having fun, enjoying the day and looking the best you can. I make sure I don't come in between you, I don't instruct you too much ;) I try my best to be invisible and get the best moments in camera. My approach is simple. To photograph everything that happens around me the wedding, the rituals, the people, behind the scenes, laughter and lots more with a creative photo journalistic touch.
End of the day my aim is to photograph memories, emotions and fun moments that are important to you which you'll cherish for a lifetime.
Can you describe highlights of your work
A Happy couple, after they receive their photographs, becoming a part of their family, making friends is truly a highlight for me.
Destination weddings is a amazing experience as well. Be it Karvaar, Goa, Ahmadabad.. it's super fun.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day?
If it's for the same client, then yes. For eg. Mehendi & probably a party the same night. Next day wedding.. sure.
Otherwise I generally say No. It's better to do 1 event in the best way I can rather than doing 2 events without creating the best images.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Oh yes. Always. :)
What special techniques do your specialize in?
I mostly shoot in natural light and I've trained myself to work with available light to get the best output possible. Wherever the need arises, I use strobes or flashes to add an extra touch, specially in low light situations.
I've trained myself over the years to photograph an event in a creative documentary way so as to photograph as much as possible that happens around me during a wedding or any event.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes. From outdoor locations, naturally lit scenes to indoors and dark low light halls. Been there, done that :D
How many photographers do you work with?
I generally work alone. But depending upon the event I've a second shooter who tags along.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I will be there for your day!
In the case of unavoidable circumstances when I am not able to, I will make sure to arrange a photographer who will cover your event.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Canon professional cameras & lenses. Back ups, batteries, chargers, lots of memory cards, extra lights. Probably chocolates as well :D
Do you charge for travel?
I give you the option to arrange for my travel & stay if it's a destination wedding. If the venue is within Pune city limits, then there is no extra cost.
