Best Candid Wedding Photographers In Kolkata

Four things that change the course of traffic in Kolkata are cricket, monsoons, processions, and weddings. During the wedding season, with weddings happening in every lane and by-lane, Kolkata becomes absolutely chaotic. And for to-be-married couples, what is more chaotic and troublesome is finding the right wedding photographers, and booking them in advance before their schedule book looks packed.

Picture This

After getting references from a hundred people, you pick one of the best photographers and sign the deal. And when time comes to see the album, you exhale a deep sigh of disappointment.

”Why has he taken pictures of people eating poppadum?”

”Why is everybody looking like wax statues in the photographs?”

Sounds familiar? You are not at all pleased with his work. All he has done is made the guests and the newly-wedded couple look like wax statues, and has shot guests gobbling down chicken tikka and rasmalai like they have never eaten before.

The Art Of Capturing Candid Moments

The growing trend of destination, royal, traditional, themed, and other kind of weddings has raised the bar of expectations. Families want pictures that capture the true essence of a wedding — celebration of happiness. And it can only be captured by candid photography. Capturing candid moments is about backstage drama and emotional highs. The essence of candid wedding photography is to make every wedding look like a Big Fat Bollywood Wedding in the album; to make the brides look like Madhuri Dixit; and the guests look like they are a part of the Monsoon Wedding style drama.

For many who lack that creative bent of mind, candid photography is not everybody’s cup of tea. The photography crew comprises of highly trained photographers who spend hours, maybe days, to think of ideas and other ways to capture your most treasured moments in perfect frames — capturing those fluttering butterflies in your tummy through those occasional shy glances, that confounding juxtaposition of your expressions during the vidaai, the escalated happiness of turning a new leaf; all abstract feelings that cannot be expressed at the moment through words, but by expressions, can all be captured in frames by candid photography.
