Across the world, different people have different ways of interpreting the beauty of wedding and ways to show their love in it. To many, it is the exchange of vow and kiss, to others it extends to the merger of two different families and the importance of difference steps to ensure a happy lifetime marriage of the both. In England though, the latter can be unusual to be seen and it can take a while to find a fellow photographer who also fully understands the significance.
An Indian origin, Sukhi Chandi excels in Asian and Indian wedding photography, having captured many who celebrated their big day and fully trusted in Sukhi to record it.
If you are looking for a professional, England based, Asian/Indian photographer, what is it that you should know and how to find them?
People of the same race or origin tend to share the same cultural background and thus, makes it easier to understand why you do things the way you do. There is not even the need to ask too much about the wedding procession as the photographer himself is familiar with it and even willing to take traditional, family/group pictures.
Another factor is the experience. Once or twice may not be enough, but some photographers who travelled far and wide and have come across many weddings and take responsibility of capturing the best moments to delivering bespoke albums will have an easier time in understanding your wedding and the cultural meanings.
And then there is the factor of experience in photography itself. The ability to incorporate modern style wedding with the century long traditions that you may still uphold is a rare skill to find, but not impossible, and also the professionalism to not fit in multiple weddings at once, but focus on finishing each with utmost importance and quality.
If you are looking for someone who is experienced in Indian wedding photography, you want to see other Indian weddings in his portfolio and that is how you will know if he/she is up to the job. Even further than that, you want to see more albums of his previous work to see his true quality, not just the best he can do.
What do people say about the photographer? Is there anyone who would refer you to him? If the photographer is active in social media, check out his accounts and see what people have to say about him.
Your family plays a big role in your wedding; it’s the joint of two different families after all. Your photographer will need to capture not just you, but also your parents, relatives and the guests and you will want him to be friendly to not only you but also them, so to create a comfortable, cooperating atmosphere for photos to be taken.
As like other photographer, the studio must also be able to provide albums and online gallery for couple to see and shared with family and friends. Rights to reproduce pictures should also be given in high resolution quality.
Sukhi provides destination weddings and is willing to travel anywhere in the world, and additional charges apply for travel and accommodation as necessary.
