Question: Is the coverage done for one family or both sides of the family?

The packages are made based on one family coverage, i.e. the booking client.

A combined package will also save you some costs as the price will be divided.

Question: Do you touch up photos? If so, to what extent?

You can visit www.zaqfilms.com and browse through my portfolio in detail and check out our editing. The wedding photographs are touched through various software that keeps the originality of the image intact. You will not find photographs in our portfolio that are immensely touched or edited. We don’t want our photographs to lose their natural feel.

Question: Where would we do the bridal/couple shoot?

With the current market trend, studio shoots have gone obsolete. Photoshoots are usually done at various indoor/outdoor locations. We have various locations in our portfolio where we have done our shoots. We can always suggest places. However, in case you want to have the shoot at any hotel, etc, the arrangement, permission, and other formalities would be your responsibility. (Permissions from Hotels, Outdoor Cafes, and other private properties have to be taken by the client).

Yes, you can. If they are at the same place.

Yes, We divide our shoot into segments. The segments are decor, the arrival of guests, arrival of bride and groom, rasams, dances and celebrations, candid shots of guests, bridal/couple shoot, and family photographs were taken at the stage.

6.2. Data Storage Policy

Working in the age of technology has a lot of benefits, but it also has some drawbacks. With tons of data coming in every week, we have to make sure that we get to import every photograph we take on our shoots and keep them safe in our systems. Our Data Storage Policy states that we will only keep your wedding data saved with us for a maximum of 2 months. You need to provide us with the selection of photos within those 2 months. Failure to do so will result in the complete cancellation of your wedding assignment.
