Prashanthi and Kamesh’s engagement photography session was amazing. These doctors certainly have a great chemistry (Pun intended), that can be seen in the photographs. We had a great time working together and creating these photographs. We shot a few locations. We started the shoot in Joondalup and finished at Kings Park, Perth. The first photograph took me almost 45mins to shoot and 3 hours to edit. I took 16 photographs to make this one.
Sharing a few (out of the many photographs) that we created that day.
Booking a Wedding Photographer or Videographer is very easy but booking the Right Photographer can be daunting. Mostly, it starts with checking out the photographer’s work on his/her website or other online portals. Do not just book straight away without checking a few things with the photographer.
Here are the Five most important questions you must ask before you book your wedding photographer/videographer :
I don’t mean to say that photographers with less experience are incompetent but the ones with more experience surely will have better command over their craft. Wedding photography is not only about taking photographs but its more about planning, preparation, having contingency plans, having back-ups, being unobtrusive and well mannered and so much more. Remember, there are no retakes in a wedding and you would always be mush safer with someone with experience.
Like I said, there are no second takes in a wedding! Even the most expensive gear can fail. After all, its electronics and can malfunction anytime.
Incase, the photographer falls ill someone (A second photographer or an associate) must be there to cover for him.
Backing up the data is the most important thing. We, at Multipixelz, make at least 03 copies stored at 03 different locations. Imagine, the photographer loosing all the data because his drive failed and he had made no back-ups.
Its important to sign a contract with the photographer. The contract helps in removing ambiguity. Please ensure that it is mentioned in the contract that you will have the right to use the photographs on social media. Moreover, a professional photographer would never hesitate in signing a contract with terms and conditions clearly listed.
Meeting in person is the most important thing to do. The process becomes non-mechanical and you get a chance to find out so much more about the photographer that you wouldn’t otherwise. The photographer must ask you the details about what you are wearing, what time of the day are the ceremonies and the location. Remember, only an experienced and a skilled photographer would ask these questions. These details help the photographer to plan the shoot.
Its very important to ask this question. Sometimes, we collaborate with one of our associates to cover a wedding. That doesn’t mean that they are subpar. But its still important to check their work in order to make an informed decision.
Shalona and Raman’s wedding has been an awesome experience. Everybody was so warm and welcoming that not for a moment did I or my colleagues feel that we weren’t a part of the celebrations. The four day wedding started with ‘Mehendi’ followed by ‘Haldi’, the Sikh ‘Wedding’ at the Sikh temple (Gurudwara) here at Perth and the reception at Pan Pacific Perth. Indian weddings are full of a variety of customs and rituals. Each one of them is colourful and unique in its own way and its always a photographer’s delight to cover them. I must say that the couple really worked hard for the wedding, per se, and all other ceremonies. Although, the wedding was an Indian wedding it was quite beautiful and unique in a way, as the couple and the families followed both Hindu as well as Sikh traditions.
Here is a glimpse of all the ceremonies of the amazing wedding.
Thank you Raman, Shalona and both the families for having me and the team there for wedding photography and videography.
