Day 1: Pre-Wedding Events

2 to 3 hours of coverage —

We will begin our coverage with any of your pre-wedding events.

Coverage of the Mehndi parties can include one photographer or one shooter for both photo and video, typically for about two hours. This is a great opportunity to have the team meet your family for the first time!

The Grah Shanti and Haldi ceremonies can be combined as a couples event or be separate with distinct times and locations. We will usually allot 3 hours of coverage for these events.

Day 2: Sangeet / Garba
4 hours of coverage —

The Sangeet and Garba nights are always a great event for your two families to meet, mix, and become one! We will start our coverage about 30 minutes before guests arrive, and get the evening couple’s and group portraits out of the way. This way once your guests arrive you can focus on mingling and meeting people.

From there, we will cover all your performances, skits, dances, or rituals you have planned. Once the party gets started we will shoot about 30-60 minutes of the dance floor before calling it a night. There is a big day ahead!

3 Hours Before Baraat - Prep

6:00 a.m. —

We will begin our coverage of your big day right around the time the Bride’s hair and makeup are completed. We can shoot some quick touch-ups and then you can begin to get dressed. We like to shoot a lot of bridal details so you can have all your jewelry, shoes, and even stationary with you for us to capture.

Once you are completely dressed, we like to take a few minutes getting solo portraits and formal portraits with your bridal party and family.

2 Hours before Baraat - First Look

7:00 a.m. —

The very first time the couple sees each other on their wedding day is always a special moment. We try to keep this time as free of distraction as possible. Just you and your partner taking it all in and preparing for life’s journey ahead!

We will move from the first look directly into couple’s portraits. We always will scout great locations and backgrounds ahead of time so we can move quickly and get a lot of variety. Our photographers know how to get great poses without making things awkward or stiff. Most importantly, we want to keep things fun and stress-free. If you feel great, you will look great!

We can wrap this session with group portraits of your immediate family and bridal party, before the main events of the day begin. This can take 30-45 minutes.

9:00 a.m. —

The groom’s time to shine! We will follow the party from the parking lot all the way to the mundap. We know this time can be chaotic, so our shooters are trained on how to stay ahead of the action, making sure they are always in the best position to get amazing shots!

The Baraat will end with the Groom’s side and Bride’s Mom coming together to begin the Ceremony.

10:00 a.m. —

During the Ceremony, each person on our team has a defined role to play. The first photographer will focus mainly on the couple, the Mundap, and all of the rituals going on. Our second photographer will mainly focus on getting reactions and candid shots of your friends and family. Those photos can be some of the most touching to see after the wedding.


12:00 p.m. —

Now comes the transition from the Mundap to the post-ceremony rituals. We know there are a lot of different kinds of traditions  here and every family is a little bit different. Whether the groom has to buy his shoes back, the couple has to fish for their wedding rings, or the family has to say their goodbye’s before the groom whisks the bride away at the Vidaii, we’ll be ready!

Group Portraits

12:30 p.m. —

To complete the morning’s coverage, we like to take this time to do some bigger group photos of your extended family and friends. We typically take about 3-5 minutes per group portrait. This way you make sure you have a photo with every guest who attended!

Once that is completed, our team will begin their break. This time is off-the-clock, and does not count against your coverage hours. We’ll rest, recharge, and prepare for the evening festivities!

Evening Portraits

6:00 p.m. —

Our evening coverage begins with couple’s portraits and immediate family photos. We will take advantage of the time we have to show off your beautiful reception decor. We can also take this session elsewhere in or around your venue to get good variety. We often will finish with this in time for our couples to attend cocktail hour if they choose to.

Cocktail Hour

6:30 p.m. —

Our team of second photo and video can begin to capture all the details of your reception decor while you are finishing your evening portraits. Then they can make their way out to the cocktail hour and get lots of candid and informal group photos of guests mingling and enjoying themselves.

Reception Program
7:30 p.m. —

The reception program will begin with your formal introduction, one of our favorite moments of the day! We relish the high energy of all your family and friends showing their love and support.

We will talk through your reception program in detail before your wedding to make sure the team is ready for every nuance. We consider our placement of cameras during this time extremely important, both to make sure we’re always getting the best angles but also to make sure we are as unobtrusive as possible to your guests.


9:00 p.m. —

Finally the party begins! This is your chance to let your hair down, take your jacket off and dance the night away.

We will typically cover about an hour of the dance party before we say goodnight, and head home.
