faq for wedding photography

We practice what we call Wedding Velvet Photography & Cinematography. It means capturing in artistic, contemporary & photojournalistic documentary style the Emotions, Story, Gossip, Drama, Style, Rhythm, Love, Ceremonies, Portraits, Details, Decor and everything else that is a part of your wedding ! This style has been developed through years of experience of covering numerous weddings in India and abroad.

We capture the story of your wedding through beautiful visuals. We shoot photos & videos using small yet powerful cameras that give us the freedom to move around freely. This way we are almost invisible to the people and able to capture purely natural moments, as unobtrusively as possible.

In the Premium package, we deliver four types of output in photography (candid and traditional) and four different wedding films. –

During a wedding shoot, the stills team and the video team should have harmony and co-ordination for the benefit of client coverage. Although we prefer handling both together, we are comfortable with handling either depending on the comfort of the client. but its your choice you can go for only video or only still photographs or both.

YOU DON’T NEED A SUPER-COMPUTER TO MAKE A GREAT ALGORITHM – YOU A NEED A STUD CODER.

YOU DON’T NEED THE MOST EXPENSIVE TYPEWRITER TO WRITE THE BEST SELLING NOVEL – YOU NEED A GOOD WRITER

But because some of you will still ask this question about our gear, let us show off.

In short, I use whatever it takes to get you stunning photos. I have a long list of equipment including Canon 1Dx, Canon 1Dx Mii, Canon 1Dc, Canon 5D Mark iii & many more  and this includes full-frame cameras, fast lenses, all forms of off-camera lighting, remote lighting equipment, props, stands, tripods, monopods and on and on. And in case, you are not sure of these mumbo-jumbo, do Google.
& Now You will get the idea that we are using world’s most expensive DSLR’s For Wedding Photography like 1Dx 1Dx Mii
So no one can beat us in equipments

For Candid Photography. we will use world’s most expensive and powerful DSLR Camera Canon 1Dx

and for wedding Video we will use world’s most expensive 4K DSLR camera, Your Wedding Teaser & Documentary will come in 4K Quality.

These are the only Limited camera’s in INDIA, So no one can beat us in quality.

Both Camera’s are World’s Most Expensive, Most Powerful And Advanced DSLR Camera till this date. you can check more by searching it on web

Many photographers approach this differently. I do not believe in setting a limit on the number of hours  I will be available to you during whole wedding weather its 2 am or 6pm or anything else. Indian weddings don’t run as per a schedule (though there always is one!) and things do tend to over schedule at times and we don’t want to miss any memory as these moments are precious. We will be available for you as long as needed. Of course, photography requires creativity – and human endurance does play a factor here

Travel, food and accommodation are costs to be borne by you. Albums (if not included in the contract) are paid separately. Any additional days of shooting (not mentioned in contract) shall be charged extra. No other hidden costs.

Music and songs selection are a joint decision of the Director, Client and the Edit team. A client co-ordinator from the studio shall be co-ordinating this. Usually the creative visualiser of the project takes care of all these details. The film titles are usually suggested either by the client or the film director and approved by both.

Anywhere with silence in the background. Any time during the wedding as you all guyz are in amazing outfits. We do not do any interviews / audio bytes after the wedding is over. A rare case exception is understood.

Considering how few weddings we confirm each year, its only fair we give
every enquiry a fair chance to book our dates. Irrespective of how much or how less
your film may cost, its a ‘first come-first serve’ world.

Yes we offer this service – These are referred to as “Same Day Edits” and they are a great way to showcase some of the best moments of the wedding instantly. However, this is an expensive process (extra equipment and setups are required for an extra editor to produce this) and adds to the final cost of the package.

Its difficult to determine the total number of images we will be shooting over a typical three or two day wedding. Approximately 4000-5000 images are expected to be shot during the whole wedding. All images shall be given to the client in high resolution JPEG format on a hard drive (digital delivery) given by client and ALL the images are colour and exposure edited. The images are shot both in candid and traditional style.

You may, but it is not preferable. You are paying us big bucks to do the job. Save money and hire only one team. The other advantage of this is that we will get unobstructed visuals without badly dressed / behaved local photographers jumping into our frames and ruining the film moments.
That way you’ll get the best of Best!

 

A pre-wedding shoot is a photo/video shoot of the couple done before the wedding that portrays the bond and chemistry they share with each other. Since wedding is a hectic time to be together, the couple get this day off with each other to shoot some “Relaxed, Together & Fun” images and videos in casual outfits (different from the heavy wedding outfits) and this photo/video footage can be used in the highlight film or as a separate two-minute pre-wedding film that can be shown during the sangeet or the wedding.

The Script-director or the Director of Photography is your singular point of contact with Wedding Velvet. Also, from your side, we would love to have a singular point of contact for all wedding shoot co-ordination. The brides / grooms siblings or the best friends are the best people for the job.

DVDs are fast going out of fashion. So much so that the latest computer systems dont even have DVD readers anymore! With everything moving online, DVD’s are obsolete and so in keeping up with the latest trend, our deliveries are done USB drives with customised cases. Such pen drives allow you to easily share your film with your family and friends, upload it online, and make as many copies as you like. Also, the quality of film is delivered on the USB is much higher than that of DVD or Blu-Ray.

Everything that has been shot by us is your property. You get all the RAW videos as well as the final videos on a 1 or 2 Terabyte hard drive provided by you. We don’t hold back anything.  The RAW videos are clips of the videos shot by all our cameras (They may be useful for edits later like first anniversary / 25th anniversary etc.)

Highlight films are usually uploaded on our vimeo / youtube / facebook channel. However, the release depends on a few factors. Firstly, we do not release trailers of couples who dont want them to be shown publicly. We respect your privacy but this clause has to be specified at the time of signing the contract.

It is rare that the delivery of the film is delayed beyond 100-120 days. But it is possible that the director of film is unhappy with some portions of the film and requests for a revision / re-edit – in which case a delay might happen. All we can say is that it is for the benefit of the film and the client. Most great cinema blockbusters have been delayed but have turned out better due to the re-edit. So its all in good spirit. We apologise for the inconvenience (should a delay happen) but assure you that we will not release anything that we don’t absolutely adore. So please be patient and give us time to work our magic.

As per the contract we deliver everything within 30 to 90 days after the wedding. This means the simpler deliverables like images shall be delivered within 25-30 days after the wedding and the full films could take about 45-60 days depending on the season work load specially during winters when we could run into a backog. The highlight film and trailer could take upto 60-90 days for the delivery. We need two basic documents from the couple for the completion of the Highlight film in time – First is their music selection (various sound tracks you want for various sections of the film) and second is the credits for the opening and closing sections of the film. A delay in sending these will exponentially delay the delivery dates of the highlight film. As a thumb-rule, we expect these two things from the couple within 30-45 days after the wedding.

Absolutely. 200-220 images per album can be inserted into one album. All images will be edited and album will be custom designed. Size of the album depends on Client requirmnets you can go for 12X12 or 12X36 or any other. The cost of the album varies depending on the quality. Album size and number of images may vary by region.
