FAQ's Do you have any particular criteria when you choose to take up an assignment? How do you decide whom to work with? Most of the clients who approach me are people who have seen or heard of my style of photography through friends or social media. There is a simple criteria before I take up any assignment, I meet with the couple and have an honest discussion about their vision, their aspirations for their wedding photographs, I share with them my previous works, my methods and we come to a common ground about how we would work together. In course of such a conversation it usually becomes easier to understand if we would be the right fit. We then take it forward. Do you travel for destination weddings? I love to travel. Let me know where you are and we’ll figure out the best way to get me out to you. Do you edit all the images? Yes. Every image I deliver is post produced with my unique style of postproduction. This involves exposure adjustment, color correction, selective black and white processing, tone-mapping, clarity adjustments, and other corrections. I try to make it as flawless. Do you provide the RAW files from my engagement session and/or wedding day? Each of my packages comes with a full resolution image DVD. However, I do not provide RAW (unprocessed) files from our shoots because I believe in delivering a finished product. Do you photograph details and family group photos? Yes! A wedding photography collection is incomplete without good details and family photos.
