We had an amazing connection with the two to begin with which only makes life easier and helps you get stunners out of them. We enjoyed every bit of this wedding and they are very special to us.

FAQs - Buyer Beware!

Dont be scared, its just our protocol we follow to keep our clients happy. We have been in this journey for just about 3 years and we continually strive to make your experience with us as best as possible, from start to finish, and beyond. We believe in customer relationship building, and do not want to stop at just your wedding. So here are some things people generally ask us:


Absolutely! Most of our packages include an E-shoot. Its our way of getting to know you and make it simpler for you to give us those magical C smiles and blockbuster emotions without fidgeting in your chair that you are in front of a camera. E-Sessions usually span over 2-3 hours including travel time, gear setup, and travel between locations. We believe this is as reasonable as it gets. Travelling to locations beyond the GTA are subject to extra cost.


Dress to Kill. No you are not going for fishing or hunting, so I do not imply on wearing waders or bush coats unless thats your theme. We heavily encourage props, and accessories. Wear solid colors if you can. Just come out to have a blast.I fall in love with clients coming up with genuine, cool themes about their e-shoots. This makes me happier than anything as images from such shoots end up giving my portfolio a total roid rage! So Dress to Kill. Look your best. Do not worry about being in front of the camera. Its our job to get you comfortable and get some awesome shots.


Images define us. We edit all of our images that go out to our clients and they are all treated professionally to meet our standards and maintain our branding. On average, you can expect 50-60 images, all full resolution, unmarked, edited on DVD or USBs. So basically for an 18 hour event you are looking at about a 1000 images. For Engagement sessions, it usually ranges from 15-20 images per hour of shooting.


Usually not. I prefer to maintain our standards, and while many clients think their experimental knowledge of Photoshop techniques is enough to impress their network of friends; it is not parallel to our knowledge of color correction, printer profiles and realistic photo retouching. However, with growth of interest in the field we wont discount that many people or siblings of clients are well educated in the field. Keeping that in mind, we do offer clients all RAW, unedited images on a hard drive provided by them at an additional cost of $250. 


This is a touchy subject. When we mentioned edited photos, it usually implies color corrected, a handful of shots color treated (retro, sepia, film, etc.) By no means, clients should expect fully retouched photos including skin smoothening, blemish removals, pimple/chicken pox marks removal, scar removal, or stray hair removal. Though we will retouch including the above where required for key portraits (no more than 5-10 images). That being said, a retouching service is available to clients beyond these images. We charge $15 per image to professionally retouch them as they were to go on a cover of a magazine. Our wedding rates are very reasonable for the general clientele as we believe in capturing moments that define you as a person in how you look on that day, and not objectifying you into porcelain dolls.


Depends on the season. We normally guarantee 10-12 weeks from the day of the event if your event falls between the months of April and September. This is peak wedding season. We are meticulous about our editing and quality that is delivered to our clients, hence we DO NOT like to over promise and under deliver. Albums are usually delivered in about 6-8 weeks from the time we send it out to print. This time is reduced to 4-6 weeks if your production falls in the months of January and April. 


Click on Our Packages. To answer this question you must check out our packages first. Most packages include at least two photographers for your main wedding day. Receptions with over 300 people normally require at least 2 photographers but are not mandatory. Its your money, you know where to spend it. We can only recommend. Sangeet, Mehndi, Choora, and other pre wedding events will only have one photographer unless requested and paid for otherwise.


Havent done any yet. But would love to. We are travel junkies and will fly to anywhere in the world if we can iron out the terms. We are laid back when it comes to this, and will treat it as a work-ation. We will try to bury as much travel costs as we viably can, however, do expect clients to arrange our lodging comparable to theirs if not in the same viccinity. Clients must pay for lodging, and airfare for one of us. For destination weddings, my wife and I will travel and shoot together.


Upon the agreed price, I will prepare a contract where all parties sign and agree to our terms and conditions laid out in the contract. Upon signing of the contract we expect a 30% retainer, another 60% of the full payment due within 4 weeks prior to the wedding, and 10% of the total due on delivery of images (not albums). So we are eager to hear from you and discuss how we can be a part of your big day.


We are glad to have you here. Our team of creative artists led by AL along with wife Hina, are looking forward to having a chat with you in person. If lowest price is your biggest concern for wedding photography, we may not be your best option, but what we guarantee is your wedding will be documented as a work of art and for you to cherish every moment relived through every image we deliver.

Every wedding is unique and while some elements can be redundant we would still like to sit down and connect first with our clients and then give them a package that suits their needs. There are off season discounts as well for months of November thru to March. Please book an appointment with us to discuss both photography and cinematography rates and packages.

Generally for a 10 hour wedding our rates start from $3000 plus taxes and it includes 2 photographers, and $3500 for cinematography and all high rez images edited on a USB and a complimentary 2 hour engagement shoot.

For South Asian weddings there are a lot of variables such as pre events, number of photographers, cinematographers, photo shoots etc. Please contact us for a very customized quote for your wedding. We try to steer clear from the abstract when it comes to showing value in booking with us with everything very transparent.
