Frequently asked questions

As a wedding photographer I’ve heard our customers asking many similar questions… Here I’ve compiled a top 10 list of the most frequently asked ones!
What is your photography style?

My photography style is more of a storytelling. Capturing a moment or conjoining it with other moments to tell a visual story is something that drives my style. While at a wedding I tend to stay in a close radar of the bride and groom and I draw my inspiration from watching how they carry themselves in presence of their loved ones (when not in front of the camera). I choose to capture raw emotions over staged ones. 🙂

Do you work only in Delhi?

No, of course I can travel all around the country and even overseas if it’s necessary to meet with your requests. Obviously, all traveling expenses, like petrol, tolls and hotel fees are included in a price tag and have an impact upon the wedding costs. I always inform my customers of all such additional expenses beforehand…

How can I make a reservation for my wedding?

You can write to me at storiesbyshivani@gmail.com and then we can meet each other at a place most convenient for you. If this not applicable we can arrange contact via skype or any video conference service. So if you decide to hire me as your wedding photographer I will give you a contract that certifies and confirms all your choices. Also it will require a pre-payment on your side. The contract is based on the standard agreement that all photographers in the industry are using.

How important is location for the pictures' quality and diversity?

Location matters a lot! Location ranges from the area where bride gets ready to where engagement and wedding happens. If the room is gloomy, lacks lighting, photography becomes a challenge there. Luminous and spacious places are essential elements in order to have get high quality pictures.

How much do I spend for a wedding photography, roughly?

Well, it’s pretty difficult to estimate a price because each wedding is a unique situation and many nuances and requirements can influence it. The cost will depend on couple’s needs. The best thing to do is to get in touch with me.

May I choose a photography album?

We do not deal in photo-books, I do not recommend it either. I think it is not suitable to my reportage photography style.

Can I have the original, RAW files of the wedding photo session?

The price tag for my services always incudes both the post-processed collection of photo and all of the original photos.
