The Story of my Prewedding Story – Part 1

Hello again Peeps, it’s been a while!

How are you? Hope you are enjoying the delicious recipes by our Master Chef SAM. Let us know how did the dish come out when you tried one!!!!

With the Wedding season on (I love this season 😉 ) we hear wedding bells everywhere.

The other day when me and Sam were travelling back home

SAM: Vaish , I overheard a girl in this bus speak to 4 photographers to cover her wedding…

Me {in mind} : Oh wow she must be my twin in the matter of Weddings

SAM: and one decorator about the rows & kind of flowers to be hanged on the gate for her bridal shower…..

Me {in mind} : You go girl ….that is how we should plan a wedding

SAM: why is she worried about all such small details … Why can’t she leave to the people who are organizing her wedding

Me {in mind} : OMG what did SAM just say… what if she knows that I spoke to 77 photographers to pick the one I wanted….what if she knows that I filled all my pinterest boards with dĂ©cor pics and had an exact one for my bridal shower….Will she think I am weird??

Me to SAM: oh is it … ok … what are you cooking for dinner tonight? {I knew I was changing the topic…. but I had to 🙂 :-p}

You heard me right …… I spoke to 77 photographers to pick one in our budget, the one who understands my dreams about wedding photography {yeah……I dream a lot about wedding photography…. infact I said my mom that I am ok with having my wedding in a temple, I am ok with a simple dĂ©cor, I am ok even with a cotton saree for the wedding but I want a professional photographer to capture my wedding moments…How she reacted on this is an entirely different story:-p ;-)}

So now coming back to my hunt…I filled a diary with the photographers details and their contact numbers (most of them are from the Facebook pages I liked…..whichever photographers page you open on Facebook there are 99% chances that I am already following them 🙂 ). I call 4-5 photographers a day , write all the details in the diary, get a quotation from them and compare it to the other photographers details . This continued for almost 15-20 days …. each day the same routine.

To be honest I loved the work & approach of each and every photographer i saw on facebook. Each one had their own style of capturing the moments. But I had to shortlist a few depending on our priorities and interests and of course the deliverables & BUDGET!!!!!

Most of the photographers I have short listed at the end are from Chennai…. I don’t exactly know the reason for this ( it must be my love for the city) , but in the end I had to settle down for someone from Hyderabad as we had events in 2 different cities on the same days and it will be easy for the photographer to travel between Hyderabad & Warangal if he is either from any of the places.

We list a few photographers here whose made us fall in love with their stunning work

  • PICTUREMAKERS – The way Praveen and his team captures the wedding moments is so unique that each photo they capture looks very pure,relaxed and yet vibrant with lots of colors & happiness.I can look for hours together at their work without getting bored. I like everything about their photos even the font on them (look at that font they use on the pics … it goes nicely with the photo texture)

  • MYSTIC STUDIOS – True to their name, they transport you to a mystic world with their photographs. Each photo they capture is so perfectly clicked and edited that you cannot stop looking at it again and again. Their technique of editing seems to be different to me when compared to other photographers ,which I feel, makes the photos more amazing. They were very prompt and patient at responding to my questions and modifying the quotation as required depending on my priorities.

  • JEEVAN PHOTOGRAPHY – Jeevan works his magic on each moment he captures that each photo looks like a cover photo of a magazine… you feel that best quality…that attitude in the photos…..it’s simply AAH-MEYYYYY-ZINGGG. And who doesn’t like to be captured like the celebrities on the magazine cover….Go for Jeevan…he will make that happen.

  • ANOOP PADALKAR PHOTOGRAPHY – A big Wowwwwwwwww comes out of your heart as soon as you look at his work. His work speaks in such grace that each moment he captures is so Dreamy, Elegant and Classy. Although I love all of his work , the way he captures the bride induces in me a radiant kind of blissfulness because they look more and more and more and more and more beautiful in his photos.

  • GOLDEN SHUTTER BY HARSHA REDDY – Golden shutter captures your golden moments with such glow that the photos are beaming with happiness. They are so perfectly captured and edited that I feel the colors in the photos look more amazing than in real.

  • PIXELSTORY.IN – We all love the neat clean work and PixelStory gives us that. As soon as you look at their work you get a feeling of classic neatness and simplicity. We get a true sense of natural feeling when we look at the photos as if we are watching something in real infront of our eyes.

  • STUDIO A – Studio A by Amar Ramesh has always been under my radar for their amazing work and stories they bring up.”Ohhhhh I like that!!!” is what I say for each and every photo they capture. I was always inspired by the way they capture the moments and specially by their edit.Infact I was inspired by one of the shoots by them at Mahabalipuram, Chennai , which led me to the same place for my pre-wedding shoot too 🙂

  • JOURNEYS BY RAM– Ram has a very distinct style, I can always tell if the shot has been taken by him . The personalities of people come alive in his pictures. He makes even the most mundane scene interesting by the way he captures it.
