Is an English photographer suitable for Indian wedding?

Sep 30th 2014 at 12:55 AM

UK Indians looking for wedding photographers should be serious in their approach. It is learnt that Indian families hire English photographers with little or no experience of Indian marriages and they regret their decision of hiring inexperienced cameramen when they get incomplete albums.

How should an Indian family find an experienced photographer?

Web is the right place to search anything but in case of Indian wedding photography UK service, you should be careful in your approach. In addition to seeing education and experience of the photographer, you need to see his work. See the work he has done to determine his usability. See the wedding pictures he has taken before making an opinion on the professional.

An English photographer would be good at taking pictures of a Christian wedding but it is doubtful whether the same person would be to take pictures of an Indian marriage. In Indian marriages, parents of brides and bride grooms take an important part in performing rituals. Also friends and cousins of bride and bride groom have their roles in the marriage function.

You are an Indian and you have different needs. You need a cameraman that is not only good at handling camera but also that has good understanding of your rituals and customs so that he can capture all the important moments without looking for guidance and advice.

What to look into a photographer?

See his work and not his words. Believe in work and not in words. The photographer might describe his service in interesting and convincing manner but you should believe on his work. Ask him to show you his work or at least give a proof of his good work so that you can believe that he would be able to take pictures of your marriage.

Should price be a consideration?

If you have options then you should certainly consider price as a factor but if you have limited options then you shouldn’t put much focus on price. It should be secondary, if you are really serious about your marriage pictures. You are investing a huge sum on decoration and meal planning and you want your photographer to cover the ceremony from venue to your home.

The photographer would be able to give satisfactory results only when he is able to understand your needs and he would be able to understand your needs, if he has information about your rituals and culture. It is mandatory for an English photographer to get information on Indian culture and customs to provide Indian wedding photography UK service.
