Aarushi Balani

Bride, Sweden

Quick delivery far exceeding our expectations​

We met with Nitin and Sandeep a few day before our wedding. They were super chill and eager to know all about us, so they could best capture the wedding to reflect us. Through all of the wedding shenanigans, they were very patient and captured some incredible moments. Nitin and his team are all very talented. We received the pictures and videos fairly quickly and they far exceeded our expectations. I would definitely recommend Shutterink.

Agrima Agrahai

Bride, Qatar

We loved them!

We had worked with Sandeep & Nitin during our pre-shoot and we fell in love with the way they work. They not only made us feel very comfortable but also our friends and family. All our guests were amazed by the efforts of their entire team. They asked us to just be ourselves and got every moment captured beautifully. They are truly a thorough professional.

Divya Saraf

Bride, Singapore

Extremely talented & professional

Working with Nitin and his team is very easy and super professional. They are like a breeze in the middle of all the big wedding chaos. From the time I started interacting with them on May 18 and all the way to the post-production and delivery of my final videos and images, working with them was pretty smooth and a lot of fun. Nitin was always approachable and was ready to hear me out and take my suggestions, sometimes even after the final deliverables were made. Their work is fantastic and they made us look picture perfect. I love their style of photography and videography and I am very happy with my results. I feel they are not just any other wedding photographers and strive to maintain their identity. If someone is looking for extremely talented, professional and no-nonsense wedding photographers, then Shutterink is someone they should definitely consider.

Sanjana Jain

Bride, Chandigarh

You have a piece of our hearts forever!

You made our special days even more special. Each and every moment captured touched our hearts. It had all elements- fun, quirky emotions and all ceremonies have been  captured beautifully.

You made us relive those 4 days and refreshed each moment. We love you and loved the film

Neil Raja

Groom, UK

Our vision captured in a stunning way

From the moment we met Nitin & Sandeep we knew we’d have a laugh on our couples shoot in Agra. They made planning the trip from London easy.

As a photographer myself, I’m not a fan of having my picture taken but the lads at Shutterink made my fiance and I feel at ease, they adapted to the bad weather and never once made us feel rushed.

We’d put a lot of thought behind what we wanted and on the day Nitin & Sandeep were happy to try some of our ideas as well as bringing their own style to the images. They were patient and fun to spend the day with, my fiance and I had a lovely time.

When we received the images back, we were simply blown away. The photographs were polished and will certainly never feel dated. We couldn’t be happier with the final outcome and thanks to Nitin & Sandeep, our vision was captured in a stunning way!

 

Akanksha Bhat

Bride, Dubai

Like part of our family

Words can’t express how incredible the whole team was! Not only where they always in the right place, at the right time to capture the best moments of the wedding, they were also amazing at making us feel comfortable and felt like a part of the family at the end of the wedding. The output was also way beyond our expectations, with the same day edit being as good as the final wedding highlight reel – we couldn’t have asked for a better team to bring out the best of our wedding.

Pronami Dutta

Bride, Assam

An act of kindness goes a long way

With an engagement entered into after a decade long relationship, we realised we did not have any picture together (apart from the unpleasant selfies). Being the kind of people who would never even imagine about a photo shoot for any possible event in life, we (My fiancé, Sundeep and I) couldn’t believe we were looking for best photographers across the country. The credit would definitely go to Sundeep for having done the research and finalising on ‘ShutterInk’ (Meanwhile I was in awe at the fact that Sundeep agreed to get the photoshoot done). 

This was in the month of May, 2019 and we quickly decided on the location, the dates (in the month of October, believing it to be the best season for the location), the stay and every minute detail. But there we were. On the day of shoot, as we moved from Guwahati to Cherrapunjee, there was a downpour all throughout. It literally rained cats and dogs. But as we met Nitin Dangwal and Sandeep Mohan at the Sai Mika resort, we knew they would make it special no matter the odds. This was followed by a wonderful evening shoot giving us images later, which we couldn’t believe to have happened to us. 

The morning however, shattered our hopes as it rained for the entire night compelling us to flee at the earliest. The heavens seemed to have broken on the place as there was dense fog all the way back. I remember Nitin hoping on to our car and said something which we could have never imagined. He offered for another shoot after few months and that they would return to complete what we had imagined and planned of. That offer itself was enough for us to understand how both Nitin and Sandeep valued the client expectations. That being said, it was not the end of the day. We continued with the shoot for the rest of the day in two other locations at Shillong (the images of which turned out to be breath taking). After three months, they returned and this time, thankfully, we just had everything laid perfectly by nature. We recently received the remaining images and dear God, we couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you ShutterInk for capturing our story which we will definitely treasure for a lifetime. Cannot wait to have you at our wedding.

Saloni Singla

Bride, Panipat

Absolute love for this team!


Oh my! I am not sure if words can express my gratitude for our fantastic photography team, Shutterink. They are like family to us now, everytime we look at the camera and smile, we expect to see their grinning faces behind it. Nitin and Sandeep captured each moment and expression so beautifully. We have seen them do all kinds of things from climbing on rooftops with their bare hands to lying down flat in the middle of an entire crowd, just to capture the perfect image. Absolute love for this team!

Best wedding photographer in India

Finding the “Best Indian wedding photographer” or “The best wedding photographer in india” always seems to be a herculean task. There are plethora of online photography sites claiming to be best wedding photographer in India (including us); there are wedding portals who present their list of “best wedding photographers in India” as well. Online references are in abundance, which could be paid or unpaid (yes that is true); offline references through friends, families, newlyweds, to-be-weds. Long story cut short, pretty much everyone has their list of best wedding photographer in India.

If you are a to-be-wed couple or just interested in knowing the best wedding photographers in India, continue to read on. You may find this post of good use.

Who is the best indian wedding photographer in India?

Finding the best Indian wedding photographer is a process. Let’s start that process with another seemingly unrelated question. Which is the best Indian movie? Andaz apna apna, Mother India, Mughal-e-azam, Taare zameen par, or shall we start dwelling into art movies as well? Different people will have different taste. People evaluate movies on diverse parameters. Some will have interest in rom-com, some will prefer more meaning movie, and some may prefer to go for more artistic aesthetics of framing and cinematography. An unrelated point it may seem, the main topic of discussion is not that distant. Different people like different things. The decision of best food will change across people.  The choice of best movie will be different. It is fair to say that the choice for the best wedding photographer in India will different for different people. The things that we like, the choices that we make, defines us. This is what makes every individual unique. One bill may not fit all.

So how do you decide the best wedding photographer in India? There are so many good photographers in India. Frankly, it’s not about the “best wedding photographer in India”. It is about “The best wedding photographer for you” OR the “Right photographer for you”. You are different and unique than the person standing next to you. This is what it is all about, finding a right match for you and to do that you need to first start asking some questions to yourself.

The starting point  

Prepare a list of photographers as a starting point. Preparing this list is a difficult task however it is utmost important that this part of selection of photographers is done well  so that we have a good base to start with. To prepare a list, you need to get information about photographers from somewhere. That information can come through friends, family, google, known photographer, or may be google. Some of the common and reliable references could be:

Fearless Photographers: Fearless is award based directory of wedding photographers. Fearless is currently rated as the most difficult wedding photography awards to win. The most reputed wedding photography awards across the world as well. If your photographer is a winner of fearless awards then you can be rest assured that photographer is good at its craft. However creating award winning images does not always transcend to creating good work for you, your family and towards a good experience. So you need to consider ‘awards’ as only one of the parameters.

ISPWP: International Society for Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) is also a photographer directory system.

Offline: By offline reference, we mean friends, family, newly-wed-distant cousin, or offline social network. To get a references from someone who has first hand  experience generally proves to be invaluable. Wedding photography is much more than taking good photographs. So keep it in mind that over a period of time, your overall experience with your photographer is going to take precedence over photographs.

Wedding portals: There are a number of wedding planning portals active in India. From time to time these portals generally come up with their favorite list of wedding photographers. Though for these portals, mostly the curation of photographers isn’t done by any acclaimed international photographer. So their list of  photographers, can be questionable. Some lists are good, some lists are paid, some portals charge either commission per wedding or lump sum based on their business strategy. Look at the list and if works as per your taste, good.

Once you have a list as a starting point, you can start dwelling into next stage. Finding a right photographer for yourself is more about identifying your preferences and what you like. Once you have done that homework, it will be easier to select a photographer.

What kind of wedding photographs do you like?  

Mostly wedding photography can be divided into two parts:

Posed: This generally covers but is not restricted to couple portraits, portraits, and group portraits.
Unposed: This is generally related to coverage of event without (or least) interfering.

Ask yourself, what kind of wedding photographs have you imagined from your wedding?

Do you prefer to have a lot of couple portraits? Do you want larger than life poses OR are you looking for natural looking images? Being in India, are you comfortable with PDA with your spouse? Are you emotional, expressive, or are you a kind of couple who does a lot of fun. Do you prefer images to be driven by emotions or would you rather have funny / activity oriented images?  Would you want your photographs to reflect your personality?

Some photographer’s style is moment driven. They keep searching for moments during weddings. When we say a moment, it could be anything like a laughter, emotions, tears, expressions, a glance, a gesture and so on. In such cases, a better photographer would be able to anticipate moments better, capture stronger moments and capture them in a better way. If you want your wedding photographs to capture laughter, tears, you are looking for a wedding photographer who is damn good at doing that. Take a detailed look at this portfolio and even more detailed look at least five full wedding sets. If you can consistently see such compelling images, you are looking at the right photographer.

What kind of editing style do you like?

Some photographers prefers to create a lot of black and white images. There are photographer who prefer over saturated colors and there are who prefers pastels. Photographer may prefer to have faded look in their photographs and some may like a balanced color and contrast. Some photographer’s style is to go for dark looking images and play a lot with shadows. Some photographers would prefer fairy tale style (everything bright). How do you want your wedding photographs to look like?

It is always advisable to hire a photographer whose editing style matches with your taste. Molding your photographer to suite your style might backfire. The photographer takes a lot of decisions on how to process an image and how the final work should look like. Hiring a photographer whose work you like will increase the chances that photographer takes right decisions for you.

How much important customer experience is to you?

Your photographer is going to spend a lot of time with you during the wedding coverage. Sometimes even more than time than the family. Not only that, your photography team is probably going to be the only team who will keep on interacting with you even after 3-6 months of your wedding. Deliverable will finish sometime after the wedding.

So do you want you photographer to interact a lot with you during the coverage OR would you prefer that the photographers quietly keeps on doing his work? Talk to your photographer before hiring them. You will know what kind of personality they have. If not, ask them how they work. Are you really looking for a photographer do just do their job or are you looking for what extra as a person do they bring on the table is important to you?

If you want your photographer to meet his / her commitments with deliverables and timelines, look for their feedback from previous clients. In most of the cases, you would be better off hiring a reputed name in the industry.

Budget?

We all keep a budget for everything. Let’s just say if you go out for shopping for a dress and you have kept INR 100,000 for it. When you find the dress that you would LOVE to buy, does that generally falls within the budget that you have kept OR is it generally above that? I for one, always buy one level up. For some reason that is something that just always happen. I may feel I have spent more than budget however I am always happy with my decision. How about you?

For your wedding photography budget, let’s start with asking yourself, have budgeted it right?

As a thumb of rule you can start with generalization that your wedding photography budget should be 5%-8% of your overall wedding budget. So if the overall wedding budget is INR 1 CR, your wedding photography budget should be around INR 5L – 8L as a general range (though not limited to).

What is perceived value of your wedding photographs to you?

Some families have big wedding budget but do not prefer to spend a lot on their wedding photographer. For them photographs are just photographs documenting what happened, who came, and who ate what. For some couples photographs hold emotional value. The sad reality of human life is, that it is finite. No matter how much we want, unfortunately our family members are not always going to be with us. How much important it is to you, to get good photograph with them? By good photograph, I don’t necessarily mean a group shot. Do you have a good photograph of you with your mom, which moves you? Which makes you feel how much your mom loves you? Do you have a good photograph of your dad with teary eyes and hugging you tightly? Or maybe your grandparents? How much do you think such photographs are worth now? How much such a photograph will be worth to you 10 years from now and god forbid we lose that family member? For me, they are priceless! If something is priceless tomorrow should you be investing more in that or less?

Your wedding photographs are going to be the only thing that are going to show how wonderful wedding you hosted. How much happy everybody was and how much fun everybody had. This is going to be how you remember your wedding as and how your kids will remember their parents wedding. The history of your wedding is a legacy that you give to your kids. So you need to ask yourself again. What is the perceived value of your wedding photographs to you? If the answer is priceless, then if needed, be open to extend your photography budget if you have found the right photographer for yourself.
