On an average, in a full day wedding you get 300-450 fine-art photographs presented as high-resolution digital jpegs. Your wedding images are professionally edited to the highest standard and given to you on a 500 GigaByte external hard drive, that you will give us. An online password protected gallery will be available for sharing your photography with friends and family.

YES! We present the Wedding album options only after delivery of all images upon final payments, the album usually takes another 2-3 weeks to be printed and delivered to you. PLEASE NOTE: Wedding Albums are not a part of any package, they are optional and charged separately.
We provide two options for printing 12X18 inch premium wedding albums designed by WeddingsByUttam.
- Option 1 - Album with 20 Spreads (i.e. 40 pages) can have around 100-120 Photographs, INR. 15,000/-
- Option 2 - Album with 40 Spreads (i.e. 80 pages) can have around 150-200 Photographs, INR. 22,500/-
Both the print options are from Canvera which is a premium brand in wedding albums. These books are made from premium quality materials, 12X18 inch in size with Continuous Absolute Layflat binding. Our style for designing albums are non flashy and clean. Please make sure you see our style before placing any order for your Photo book prints.
Once you have shortlisted and shared the filenames with us for printing and after making full payment for the book, we will create and finish the layout. We will get the book printed by Canvera and have it shipped to any given address directly. It usually takes about 7-10 days. Second copy of the album – 80% of the total cost of the album ordered. Online Album available at no extra cost.

From the day final payments are made and received into our accounts, Post production work will begin. This usually takes 30-45 days to complete, after which finalization and delivery of images alone are done within 5-7 days.

RAW, unedited images are not made available for viewing or printing. This is part of my effort to set very high quality standards. Images that don't make it through the cut are rejected because they may be blurry, heavily underexposed or trash-worthy. Images we give you are handpicked from the best ones that are clicked. These pictures showcase best of our work.

Yes, we care about every individuals taste and liking towards certain kind of photographs, hence you can share your sample “shot-list” so we can try and plan a shoot around it by adding some of our own creative elements.
PLEASE NOTE, Good photographs that you often see of couples or the bride and groom are widely dependent upon the location of shoot. Other factors like type of venue, timings, available lighting conditions, decorations and lights, props and accessories, the subjects, their wardrobe and make-up, ability to pose and very importantly the right attitude play a very important role in creating good photographs. Difficult as it may seem, to create beautiful imagery from the odds is my final goal.

Yes, we absolutely do! As a matter of fact, we highly recommend hiring just us to shoot both the groom’s and the bride’s family. It’s an absolute waste of resources to have two separate teams to essentially the same thing. We have enough in-house resources to cover your entire wedding from start to finish.

WeddingsByUttam's One day Candid Wedding Photography package for both sides usually consist of two Candid and traditional photographers.

Depending upon the scale of wedding, we decide on the team size from 2-4 photographers. I mainly take care of all the Candid wedding photography and my second shooter is deployed to help me in taking other important shots as they happen simultaneously. The team will also include traditional photographers.

Booking process is simple. Call us or email us with the details of your wedding. We will check on the availability of those dates and work out a package deal for you. Details can be discussed in a formal meeting, but we don't mind it over the phone also.
Advance booking fees, which is 60% of the agreed amount is required to be paid to formally book your wedding dates. Balance 40% amount is to be paid on the day of the wedding or shoot.
A non-refundable fee of 20% of the advance amount is levied in case of cancellations from the client side.
Please Note: A client meeting is not considered as a confirmation for any booking. We will formally block your dates only after receiving the full advance payment. Last minute bookings i.e. (less than 30 days from date) if available, will attract 30% extra added charge to the final cost. This is applicable for all the services that we offer and have been discussed.

Payments are done in two parts. First, a Advance booking amount, which is 60% of the agreed amount is required to be paid to formally book your wedding dates. Second, the final 40% balance is to be paid on the day of the wedding or shoot. Any additional services bought during the shoot will be charged at actual and billed to the client.
A non-refundable fee of 20% of the advance amount is levied in case of cancellations from the client side.
Please Note : All post production and editing of images, videos and films will only commence after final payments are made and received into our accounts. It usually takes 45-60 days to complete the post production process after which finalization and delivery of images and films are done within 10-15 days. Any delay in final payments will further delay the time taken for final delivery.

Travel , food, accommodation and local transportation for the team are borne by the client. These amounts will be charged 100% in advance at the time of booking.

Absolutely Not! My assignment fees remains the same and will only cover the number of days I will actually be shooting but out-of-station assignments will have an extra travel and lodging charge associated, which will be at actual.

We understand that getting married is an expensive affair that involved many little things that you pay for. Good quality photography is also one of them that comes with a price. Considering both these factors in mind, we keep our price as nominal as possible while justifying the efforts that goes behind delivering quality images. Either ways, all negotiations are only done in person so you may please get in touch with us. Also please note, final product may depend upon the final budget!

Along with the assignment, you own the full usage rights to your wedding photos for non-commercial use, which means you can do whatever you want with your wedding photos (like making more albums, taking prints, sending them out to relatives, sharing them online and what have you). The only thing you cannot do is resell your wedding images – which I am sure you will not want to do! As a photographer, we will own the ‘copyright’ to the photographs, which means we will own the author rights to the photograph.

We may! If your wedding results in terrific wedding photos (and we are sure it will!), we would love to share those pictures on our personal portfolio website and social channels as examples of great work we’ve done, so that other couples may also be inspired by your wedding. Should you specifically NOT want us to show your wedding photos on our personal channels, let us know beforehand. There is no official policy on how to approach these situations, and there might be a middle ground we can work out.

Once we deliver the pictures and videos, we ask clients to do multiple back up’s. We usually keep them with us for 30-45 days from the day of delivery before deleting.

Our base in Mumbai (INDIA) and we work from home as due to our nature of work, we are always on a move.

Pre wedding Photography / Couple Session FAQ's

(For price details please visit the "Wedding Packages" tab below)

Pre wedding photography is done to showcase love, bonding, emotions and chemistry between the couple. You will get a mix of candid shots and posed pictures directed by me.

Once you book a pre wedding session with me, I will either meet you in person or have a telephonic discussion with you providing you alternatives of shoot locations, some of which are free and some where a permission fee is required which is taken care by the client. I will also decide upon the clothes to wear that matches the theme.

It depends on the package you choose from pre wedding price list. Usually from a full day couple shoot you end up getting between 40-50 high resolution, color corrected pictures.

Once we done with pre wedding shoot, based on our schedule we can post some teaser pictures on our social media page Facebook / Instagram and tag the couple so that they can share it with friends and family.

Cinematic Wedding Films FAQ's

WeddingsByUttam's single day Cinematic Film Package consist of two teams to cover both sides, Each team will have cinematographers and traditional videographers. One can opt between Cinematic Wedding Films or traditional videography along with the Candid Wedding Photography Package. You can choose this service not only for both side coverage, but for single side also.

(For price details please visit the "Wedding Packages" tab below)

Music and song selection is a joint decision between the client and the editing team. The film titles are usually suggested either by the client or the film director and approved by both.

Nothing in life comes free! Music is an art and all artists expect to be paid for their music. Some labels allows free use of music for online usage and some have a fee. That said, if you have a specific soundtrack in mind please let me know and I’m happy to look into its licensing or use options.

Yes, definitely. Before we deliver you the final edit of your wedding film or share it on our social media, we send it to you for a preview, should you want any changes made. Only after your final approval, do we finish the film.

We usually allow two rounds of changes to the wedding trailer and film. We completely understand that there is always room for changes and edits, and want to ensure that you’re absolutely happy with what you get – after all, it’s your wedding! We urge you to tell us all the changes in one go so that we can incorporate them in the first go – and leave the second round for any minor changes as needed.

Everything that we shoot at your wedding is your property. We do not hold back anything. You get all the video footage as well as the final videos on a 1 terabyte hard drive provided by you.

Film editing is a tedious and creative process, and we work with some of the best editors in the industry, who are perfectionists and believe in delivering the highest quality. After seeing hours and hours of footage they select the best of the best shots for the film, which is a very time-consuming process. As a thumb-rule, each minute of final edit takes about two day to complete, from the day the final edit begins. We can assure you that once you see the result, it will be totally worth the wait!
