Frequently Asked Questions
1: Where are you based? Will you be able to travel to another city?
2: What is our style and how do you cover Weddings?
We also take some posed fun shots to portray the chemistry and romance between the couple. Lastly, if you are worried about your reception photos on stage, we cover that too. We take a brief in the beginning and intermittently on what is the expectation and then play around with our creativity. While most other photographers in the country make use of available light while capturing photographs and sparingly use artificial lights, we love using artificial flash lights to get perfect skin tones and great lighting which you only see in fashion photography or movies.
We also give styling tips to couples on decor and clothing so that everything looks great visually and we can create and deliver stunning photographs. We even advise on how to manage wedding logistics so that couples can avoid common mistakes which people often do, by tapping into our extensive experience of weddings of 9 years. It will not be wrong to say that we have shaped the wedding photography industry since its initial days to what is now widely recognised as Candid photography and an aspiring career for many youngsters.

9: Do you give hard copy of photographs too?
Yes, there are a wide range of albums which can be chosen. We use Kodak wedding Collections’ and Mazda’s service to print our albums. You can select from a variety of options of wedding albums and photo books. We offer leather bound to hard bound and even soft bound albums. You can choose between 12×12″, 12×15″,12×18″ and 15×15″ (Mega Luxury Album) album. We prefer Art Paper . All prints are matte finish as it is the best format to print the images. Our workstations are also calibrated to the Kodak and Mazda printers for accurate colour reproduction so that what you see on the screen is what you will get in print. The album is not the typical off the market stuff but a beautiful creation to accentuate the pictures and showcase your precious memory in an unforgettable and splendid design which you would love to go through again and again.
You can also order large life-sized RGB prints from us. Drop into our office to see them before you make your mind.

15: What happens if the photographs you stored on the hard disk get deleted by some accident?
Don’t worry about such a condition as we carry a laptop on each assignment we go and back-up all data on SSDs which are very robust. After reaching the office, the data is backed up on two separate hard-disk to minimize any failures. It is very rare that such an incident may occur and if it does then the probability is further less of it happening on two storage devices at the same time. By some rare coincidence, it does happen then we won’t charge half the remaining amount and if already paid, we will refund half the amount. That is the best we can do.
11: How many photographers and cinematographers come to the wedding for assignment?
12: Are there any terms and conditions from your side?
a) KnotsbyAMP will retain all Intellectual Property rights of the photographs. By hiring us for your wedding photography you only get fair usage rights which includes making unlimited copies ( prints and digital ) of image, right to share images with who-so-ever you may deem fit . Under no circumstances can the client sell the photograph. The client cannot use the photographs for any photography competitions. He is free to make any number of prints and copies for his personal use and share for viewing with whomever he may deem fit.
b) Half the total agreed amount has to be paid in the beginning to confirm the booking and the remaining half on the first day of the assignment by bank transfer. The work on editing your photographs or videos will not start unless the client pays the remaining amount.
c) Once we enter into the agreement the client cannot break the contract without paying for damages and loss of business and revenue to KnotsbyAMP. If the clients wish to opt-out of the agreement then KnotsbyAMP will charge the retainer amount(which is 50% of total contract value) to compensate for the loss of business as we explicitly block the dates and our resources for you upon signing the agreement.
d) KnotsbyAMP is a team of creative photographers and cinematographers. In case if a particular member falls ill, we will ensure that someone from our team replaces the photographer/cinematographer to fulfill the photography for the client.
e) No particular image is guaranteed. We try our best to capture all precious moments, to include friends and family, photographs of your parents, some family group shots. However, despite our best efforts some images because of time crunch, and various reasons we may not get an opportunity to capture a particular photo.
f) If you don’t want your photos or videos to be shared on social media and other publications at a later date after the wedding, you will have to pay 200% of the total price to compensate for the loss of revenue due to not being able to market our work for new business.
