What is Candid Wedding Photography?

Often we receive query from clients, what is candid photography.  You might have seen a lot of typical wedding albums having images of posed people, where photographer might be asking to the people  “ Look at the camera, smile please, ok”. Every thing seems same In those albums except, people, place, bride & groom. Same Bridal poses, Same stage shots, Same Varmala shots and so on and so forth.

Candid means unposed photography.  Clicking People when they are  busy in themselves, gossiping, Laughing, enjoying, dancing,  greeting, getting emotional,  and so on. We take the photos without disturbing them. The basic of Candid Photography is to focus on real , unposed expressions and that’s why we are there.

No, no, you are portraying us wrong! We are not denying the importance of the standard photography. From the view  of the photo-record.  This is also required to avoid such issues like there are more photographs of the bride side,  Mama ji is missing from the entire photo shoot etc.

You know it very well that it is quite impossible to click the candid pictures of each and every member attending the marriage. We make sure that the pictures will be of good quality and we will focus more on the bride and groom. You have to introduce us to the five to ten people who can also be in our focus, other guests will be covered randomly.
When you will open your album even after 10-15 years of the wedding, and have a look of the exciting and beautiful wedding pictures, you will surely thank us. You will definitely love your pictures. This will refresh the wedding memories. You will see the real stories in our photography. The album will not contain the photographs representing the bunch of relatives or rituals. You will see the emotions, the laughter, the sense of joy and above all you will find the “real you” in those pictures.

In short, candid photography provides you wonderful results but we have to focus on bride & groom and close group. There will be random clicks for the others. Just, explain this to your relatives or you will be in trouble. You can avoid this by allowing us to appoint an associate to take the posed pictures or you can take care of this by yourself.

Your pictures are just awesome and I am cool with the charges. Now, how can I book you people?

Nice! Have a look at the form given below. Fill it up and click on the “send” button. It’s done or mail us the details of your wedding like exact dates of the ceremonies, city, timings of the function, brief us about  your requirements like Only candid photography and/or Cinematic film and/or Posed Photography etc.   The required email ids are me@mahaveersharma.com. A Contract  letter will be sent to you. It will contain details like payment timelines, delivery schedule, standard terms & conditions. We will block the dates mentioned by you. You will have to pay in advance 50% of the fees.

How early can I book you?

We believe in first come first serve. Now let us clarify who is first. Who blocked us by paying 50% Advance before any one else is the first one. Dates are blocked when the advance payment is done. So, it is advised to be fast. Feel free to decide. Another thing we would like to let you know that we take assignments from all over India and abroad so most of the time we are in travelling, and many of our clients meets us only on the shoot day itself. Though we also like to have a face to face word with you people, but it is only possible when we are in the same city at the same time.

Let me check the technical, what equipments do you use?

Photography is not at all about the equipments, it is all about the visualization of the scene. Equipments are only there to support you. By the way, we We use Canon 5d M iii, 5D Mark ii, 24-70 f2.8, 70-200 mm f2.8 IS2, Canon 50mm f1.4 to name a few.

What if you fails to show up after taking the advance?

Though this has never happened since we have started but In the unlikely event of personal illness or other circumstances beyond our control , an attempt will be made to procure the services of another candid photographer to fulfill the obligations. If that also not works out, we will refund the full advance amount.
