Well the photographer need not be essentially Indian, but he should be acquainted with the Indian rituals and traditions. Otherwise he or she will totally miss the essence of the occasion. Indian weddings are elaborate and grand affairs, and to some extent complicated. There is so much to be done in so little time, that you will need excellent time management and excellent idea about what and whom to capture in the photographs. Most Indian weddings are completed within a span of 5 days which means that a lot of moments will be captured in the camera. An Indian wedding photographer will make a lovely compilation combining the most candid shots with the most emotional ones. They have a special talent for it!
An Indian wedding photographer notes the details. It is not easy to capture all the special moments let alone something so grand like wedding. If marriages are made in heaven, the wedding shots are captured on earth. But before you finalize the photographer, you will have to check his or her portfolio. You will get an idea about the kind of album you will have. Ask yourself whether you want this for your wedding and then decide accordingly. If you have some specifications, you should not hesitate to let the photographer know about your thoughts.
Think of the number of photos you want. And accordingly ask your Indian wedding photographer to select the photographs. You should also ask him about the print size and if he is going to shoot digital or not. If you are looking for extra prints, you should not hesitate to ask the photographer for the required number of prints. If you are looking for an album, you should ask the photographer whether he will be taking anything extra for the albums. In case if there is any cancellation, you should ask him what kind of refund you can expect.
You should always remember that wedding photographs are not inexpensive. The Indian wedding photographer will not just click the buttons randomly. The photographer will need a sense of approximation and skills. Moreover as a professional photographer you will always have to think of the details before you capture the shot. If you consider the artistic value of the photographs, you will find that they are quite sophisticated compared to any visual arts. So discuss with your wedding photographer, share your thoughts and also ask him for any advice on your wedding album.
