It was a pleasure working with PTaufiq Photography to capture moments from our wedding as well as other events surrounding the same. We were planning a week long South Indian wedding in under 6 weeks and were looking for a team that would be flexible with the schedule while matching our needs. PTaufiq Photography was highly recommended by a close friend and wedding vendor. Pervez and I chatted for almost 30 minutes just to get know each other and turned out we had very similar tech backgrounds. I told him how long of coverage I was looking for and was willing to work with me if we went over that time. He mentioned that he would come up with a 5 min video of the wedding and a 30 min video, along with providing us with all the raw footage. He was willing to give us a live stream of the wedding which helped with all friends and family members who were not able to attend our wedding. Anytime I called he was willing to pick up the phone and chat. We really connected with him and his team and they all are like close friends to us now.
We decided we wanted to do two photo shoots in Boston and Pervez on photography and Richard on video. Pervez really connected with us as a couple and took amazing shots while we did an Indian outfit and a western outfit. He was always open to any poses and he had some really cool poses himself. He is really talented at making sure the camera angle has perfect symmetry with us and the background. Richard had some really cool video shots he took of us almost like a 180 degree video of us as a couple walking and talking. These guys were so easy to work with on this day and were super flexible.
Pervez came to our house for the Haldi ceremony also known in south India as the preparations of the groom and bridge for marriage. We had Pervez on photo, Kaelib photo and video, Joe on video and We ended up going way over on time and I didn’t even hear a peep out of Pervez and his team. They were excited and wanted to capture those precious moments. We were able to do a couple photo shoots throughout the event and his team was able to just blend into the crowd. He brought his drone that day to capture some amazing shots of us together for our video.
Pervez and his team showed up right on time an hour and half before everything was about to start. He got video interviews with my wife and I and we can’t wait to see what we each said about each other. They got some video and photo shoots of both of us getting ready. The day of the event his team was able to take amazing shots of the entire event while blending into the crowd. We didn’t necessarily follow our agenda and his team was able to adapt flawlessly. They worked the entire 6 hours of the wedding and I didn’t hear a single compliant from them. They really delivered VIP service for our wedding.
Nicole showed up an hour before the cocktail hour and took some amazing shots of my wife and I. Joe and Kaelib blended into the crowd to capture those candid video shots of the crowd and all the events that unfolded that evening. They were able to use the drone to capture our special performances that night along with capturing the family interviews of us as a couple. Dele worked really hard throughout the night capturing those photos of family/friends’ shots with bride and groom while dancing was going on. Nicole was super sweet making sure we got away from the crowd and got a chance to enjoy the food. She also made sure we got some time in the photobooth and got some time to enjoy the event with our friends and family on the dance floor. It was a pleasure to work with PTaufiq Photography team that day and they blended into the crowd and were able to capture those precious moments.
Post Events shoot:
Pervez was so excited from the wedding and engagement shoot and shared a couple amazing shots with us the same day via email. He finished editing over 500 shots from the events about 2 week and provided us the ability to view them online. Keeping in mind his team is busy during the crazy summer weddings season. PTaufiq and his team wanted to see our reaction to a teaser that his team created about 3 weeks from the wedding. Both my wife and I watched our 30 second teaser and ended it with tears. The team was able to capture and present all the highlights from each event and end with an amazing 360 video of our first dance together. The video looked as if it was the greatest week with amazing parties throughout the week, while ending with our most emotional hug during our first dance. If the trailer came out this amazing we can’t wait to see what the final videos will look like.
Kaelib is really good at asking those touching questions to get those emotions of how you feel about your significant other knows how to capture those personal memories on video.
Joe is a video guru who can envision a entire movie and knows how to capture those moments in order to stich them all together to tell a great story.
Pervez is an absolutely amazing photographer. He is a lighting and proportions geek and makes sure he has perfect lighting in every shot. He has one of the funniest personalities and is really an adult kid. He is very relaxed and knows that wedding are chaotic however he tells you just focus on the two of you and I’ll capture everything.
Nicole – we thought we couldn’t meet anyone better than Pervez, however when we got to meet her, we quickly learned she was a huge sweetheart. She was amazing at capturing those special shots before the reception began.
Richard – great guy who pays attention to detail when taking video, especially the 180 degree video shots he takes.
Dele – did a great job taking photos of our reception, did wonders with the limited lighting on the reception stage photos.
