I won't write much but leave a review of my work written on my Facebook page by a bride I shot recently.
Excellence in style, service, execution and photography.Thanks for the memorable photos and capturing our wedding moments so beautifully ! His pictures are phenomenal, especially his ability to get the colors and lighting to perfection. He provided the photos very quickly after the wedding, much faster than my friends' photographers. We have gotten compliments on our wedding photos like you wouldn't believe; many of my relatives have told us that they've never seen better wedding photos taken. Amazing work Sameer!! :) - Indranee mangle (Shah).
