Wedding Quotation : Madhav

Hi Madhav,

North Water Star is proud to associate with you and we would like to offer you the Quote to which suits your convenience. Before we begin, we would like to share something with you.

North Water Star stands for Luxury Art. Our Work is an Illustration of Fine Art. All of our Wedding Bookings have come through Word of Mouth.

We were recently awarded Runner’s up, TAMRON Photography Contest Photographer of the Year 2014 for Weddings.

The philosophy behind our pricing is to be simple and straight-forward.   A number of factors helped us determine the right price for our services and products; and they include the following:

1) Style and Consistency – As you look through our work, you’ll see consistency in a style of photography and post production that is unique to our studio.

2) Service – At any point in the process, before, during, and after the wedding, you’ll have two or more points of contact with our studio: the full-time studio manager as well as your lead photographer. Having two people, ensures that we’ll always get back to you quickly and we’ll always be available.

2) Post Production – Having a full-time post production specialists and a part time post production specialists, trained in our unique and original style and working inside of the studio, ensures that our images are consistent and they are completed and delivered soon after the wedding. We post produce every image we deliver.

3) No Upsell – Our packages contain a varying amount of Albums, Sign in Books, Enlargements, and hours of coverage. However, in every package, we include the image DVD of full-resolution, fully-post produced JPEGS. We’re not here to upsell on products after the wedding or throw in hidden costs.

4) Equipment – We’re using top-of-the-line equipment as you can see here in our equipment listings given below. We’re not just showing up with a camera and a couple lenses, but instead, we’re equipped with the lighting equipment necessary to make the most out of any scene.

5) Backups – All images are backed up on site, taken into the studio and backed up twice and uploaded to an off site backup location.

6) Qualified Second Shooters – We’ve the right people for our Gigs for the right kind of events we cover. Most of them are well qualified and have shot a lot of events that we cover and we know they will be well behaved, professional and produce top quality service going forward.
