(Frequently Asked Questions)

Bridal Safari has a team of Candid Photographers and Videographers who love storytelling. Our passion is a documentary approach to wedding photography & Cinematography which combines elements of photojournalism, portraiture, fashion and fine art. On the day of the wedding our emphasis is to tell your unique story just the way it is. We do not choreograph or script the content. We shadow the couple unceasingly through the day and document not just the moments but real emotions that make up their wedding story. However for the pre or post couple portrait sessions we may have to guide our couples a bit so that the couples are at ease and not feeling awkward about the whole thing.

We believe that there are 3 things you should keep in mind while engaging a wedding photographer:

Firstly, you must have an instinct for the style of photography you want for your wedding. Would you want to opt for the stereotypical "posed" type of photography or would you much rather choose a candid, natural way of capturing images? …the kind that captures the essence of your special day and is reflective of varied moods and emotions. A good bet is to engage a photographer each from both schools. While the posed photos have traditionally been used, the candid photos capture all those precious moments that would make your wedding unique.

Secondly, the photographer you choose must have the confidence, rapport and understanding of your friends and family in a manner that he is accepted more as a friend than a photographer. This is a little tricky as most of the photographers would have a big gap in the mindsets and this can create a big difference in capturing all those fun filled moments or the other finer moments of bonding and love. If you can't relax and be yourself, it will be very difficult to capture the true essence of your wedding. You should choose someone who will make you feel at ease, can relate with you and enhance the quality of your special day.

And lastly, the photographer himself, his passion, eye for details , his own distinctive style for wedding photography and his willingness to go the extra mile in capturing all those moment that you will cherish for a long long time.

Shooting is a passion for us. Every wedding we try to capture and create original artwork. This keeps us motivated and passionate about our work. We would love to discuss your ideas but copying someone elses' work is not exciting. Having said that, we will try to surpass your expectations.
Along with the assignment, you own the full usage rights to your wedding photos for non-commercial use. This means that you can do whatever you want with your wedding photos (like making more albums, taking prints, sending them out to relatives, sharing them online etc). The only thing you cannot do is resell your wedding images – which we are sure you will not want to do! As the photographers, We will own the ‘copyright’ to the photographs, which means we own the author rights to the photograph.
We make a living recording your gorgeous day and if we don’t get a chance to show the world how beautiful your wedding was it will make our hearts heavy.

The Wedding Film package typically includes a 5-6 minute highlight video and the longer video. The Photography package includes around 200-250 high-resolution Images and a nice CoffeeTable Book alongside the same. We share our deliverables to the client via Cloud Sharing and a DVD.
We usually deliver the soft copy images of pictures within 4-6 weeks of the wedding. The Wedding Films can take upto 2 months. The Photobooks usually takes 2-3 weeks.
Alright. So once a project is confirmed, we shall draft a sample contract with all the details and schedule inputs alongside the package. Post your approval, we shall be requiring 50% as advance to block our dates. The rest is due on the day of the wedding.
As musch as we would love to shoot many more weddings in a year. But we can only take 12 wedding assignments in a year. For this we carefully choose the weddings that we want to shoot, so that our clients get the most out of us.
