Eudora Welty said “A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away”…
And we're the specialists who can help you freeze your favorite moments in pixels and cherish them forever! (Or at least till apocalypse wipes out all form of digital media on this planet).
Armed with a keen sense of observation and attention to detail, a heightened sense of empathy and understanding of people, and the knack of turning your Moments into Memento’s – we give every assignment the concerted focus it deserves to bring you results you would love to look back on or show off for years to come. We spend a good amount of time “choreographing” a shoot, planning unique styles, getting to know you to integrate your story or your lifestyle into the shoot, or plain making you look like movie stars!
Drop us a line and lets make some magic!
What is your date of Establishment?
IPCT team has been shooting weddings/ folio’s/ bump shoots et al since 2010. Official facebook page was launched in August 2013.
How far in advance should clients book your services?
If a slot is free, we are available even in a week’s notice. However we recommend that people try to book at least a month or two in advance.
What is the advance payment before the event?
We ask for 50% of the total fee by cheque or bank transfer in advance. The booking is deemed confirmed post the payment reflects in our accounts.
What is your cancellation policy?
For all confirmed bookings (50% advance paid), If the cancellation is made at least one month prior to the event, we will refund the whole amount – Anything lesser than that, we will need to retain 30% of the payment that was made (So if 10000/- was given as advance, 3000/- will not be refunded).

There are two of us doing the candid photography. We bring in additional people for traditional photography and videography.

Following timelines are followed:
a. Traditional photographs and candid photographs – processed and edited – 8 weeks from event day. Online photo selection process initiates post this. ||||
b. Video DVD – 8 weeks from event day ||||
c. Album – 4 to 6 weeks after photo selection process completes.
However the couple would start getting sufficient pictures to share with their friends and relatives starting from the first or second week itself. ||||
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
We DO retain copyright for the photos – But that applies ONLY if someone tries to submit them to photography contests or magazines et al without giving due credit. The pictures we provide to you are not watermarked – So you could use it for your personal reasons anywhere. We would request clients to give due credit to us whenever you are uploading the pictures anywhere : ). That truly helps.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?

When will the client get the final album?
Album – 4 to 6 weeks after photo selection process completes.
