After seeing their work, Aniket and I decided to go ahead with MIH for our wedding which took place on the 12th of December, 2018. From the very first meeting, both Ron and Kartik were very pro-active, responded quickly to tests and made us feel very comfortable. They also encourage you to meet 2-3 times before the wedding, to know exactly what you want in your wedding album. They take notes of the slightest of the details which is amazing! They were also very quick in delivering the photos! Thank you so much team MIH, we had great experience! Keep up the beautiful work! :)

After stumbling upon tons of photographers from Pune, Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Kalpajeet and I finally pinned down Monks In Happiness on WedMeGood app. Little did we know we were going to find the best team to capture our wedding. We were very particular about our wedding photographer and were looking for a team that could execute our ideas proficiently. When I came to know that Ron is one of the lead's in the team I had made up my mind instantly. Ron, Kartik and the entire team is exquisite. They understand you so well that later you don't really have to spend a minute on your wedding photos and videos. Ron arranged for a few meetings to discuss our ideas and heard us patiently. He met our families to know them personally and also made them comfortable. They captured all the important details of every event, family members, friends, decor, outfits, moments and two different customs, beautifully. Apart from the ideas given by us they also clicked shots that left us awestruck and emotional. I loved the way Shriya was with me for the whole wedding. She indeed clicked some classy solo shots which I will cherish for my entire life. Coming on to their delivery, we were surprised to see selected important highlighted pictures even before we left for our honeymoon. They are super fast, efficient, punctual, immensely hardworking and down to earth. Throughout our night wedding the entire team was cheerful and clicked amazing shots. These Monks know what they are doing and I would anytime recommend them to anyone who wants to have their wedding memories to be cherished for a life time. Thank you MIH for being like a family and managing everything so well. Wish you guys best of luck for future endeavors. Lots of Love #Shwongotales :)

We had a fabulous experience working with the MIH team. They are full of energy, charisma and enthusiasm. Right from the beginning, they have been a part of the whole process- getting to know one another, hearing our story, understanding what we wanted from the film, trailer and photography. They insisted on sharing the pics that we liked so that they got an idea of our taste and likings. On the wedding day, they have been super punctual and kept their energy high right till the end. The whole team is extremely cooperative, polite and very friendly. Shriya was with me the whole time and she has taken some amazing shots. Sparsh is awesome with his video camera and gave us mind blowing video shots in the film and the trailer. Ron and Kartik ensured that everything was going right and were constantly on their toes. They have captured every special moment of our bid day and made the wedding a memorable one for all of us. We are more than happy with the trailer, film and the photographs that we will cherish for the lifetime. Thanks a lot Monks for making it so special for us. All the best and keep up the hard work.

The Monks in Happiness team is a group of extremely sweet and co-operative people, they looked into our needs and preferences with a lot of care and concern, Kartik personally took a keen interest in the photohgraphy of my brother's pre-wedding shoot and the wedding movie, they understood exactly what we needed and gave an amazing compilation of memories we love going through all the time. Not to forget they are also extremely punctual and very prompt with the deadlines given. I really dont think any review can do justice to how amazing the team is. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone looking to capture their most special moments in pictures The wedding movie compilation was one of the best wedding movie ever seen. The blend of music and shots taken by the team were right on the spot. A big THANK YOU, to the entire team, you’ll are amazing.

I came across MIH through a cousin . She had interacted with them during her friend's wedding . Well that interaction was beneficiary for us. What a well co-ordinated team and professionalism on point . We never felt they were just photographers who just came to shoot , they became family. Innovative ideas plus full of fun , you'll never get bored . They advise you to meet 2-3 times before the shoot to get to know each intricate and minute details that can help them . Thank you guys for such a wonderful experience and made our life moment memorable forever with all the madness and craziness captured by you'll in each photo and the videos . Kartik you're a superstar 😀. The whole team is BEST . I highly recommend them .

“You don’t take photograph, you make it.. “ and this team knows how to make your photograph..MIH is known to me now since past 3 years, I met Ron n Kartik 3yrs ago for my sister’s wedding and trust me after meeting them it was sure that this project is done by them. They were really good at their work and the most important thing was I liked their passion for the work, they know to create memories. And indeed they crafted beautiful memories at my sister’s wedding. Every emotion was taken care off..they knew the right click for the happiness for lifetime..Everyone in the family was in awe for the work they had done, and by then it was decided all the events in the family is gonna be covered by them, and it happened. After my sister’s wedding was the wedding of my brother which happened to be just n year ago, and this time they were even better than before..they covered all the events so beautifully that the words can’t describe. Hardwork, dedication,determination,client satisfaction and many more are the best qualities for which I admire this team.and as I mentioned earlier they frame the happiness, the memories to cherish forever n ever.. and now they also have another brand which works for small events which is JOY REEL..so now as my family had decided that this relation with this team would be an ongoing process, so all the small events like house warming parties, birthdays, silver jubilee, golden jubilee everything is covered by them.. I wish I could share all the pictures here which brings happiness when we see all those beautiful memories captured by them..the best people ever I’ve worked with.. Highly recommended for all the beautiful couples to frame their special memories..😊

MONKS IN HAPPINESS!!! They resonate happiness!! Ron and Karthik ensured right through the wedding that everything was captured, they came on time, knew what was to be shot and also gave handy tips to what pose would look good. To begin with, they have a splendid app that makes viewing photos so much easier. In this time and age where literally everything is attached to our mobile device, this app allows family members spread across the globe to have timely access to photos, so what that actually did was it still kept the zing on days after the wedding, it kept the family connected.. Felt like a competition to who got to see it first!! Since the wedding was in Delhi, and the locations of the two parties pretty distant, they did a good job of covering both sides by maintaining a big team. The photos are really good, especially the candid ones taken. MY brother (the groom) is no poser at all.. So getting good photos of him was such a blessing for once. While photos are good, what is their definite strength is their trailer and cinematic films. A lot of thought and creativity goes into this, and they did a magnificent job :) thank you team MIH!!

The Monks are true to their name. They brought in lot of experience and enthusiasm into the shoot of my sister's wedding. I had booked them for my sister's wedding after we saw them covering my best friends wedding in Hyderabad. They connect very well not just with the couple, but also with their friends and family. They have a very good understanding of the intricate details of the wedding and true to their name they indeed brought in a lot of happiness for our entire family. Their App is world class! And the photos have now gone viral in the friends and family, courtesy the App. One thing I would like to highlight, their Cinematography is one of the best I have seen. The Trailer & Film, both were delivered on time and everyone in the family thoroughly enjoying it. Wishing the Monks all the best and would definitely be calling them for my own wedding!

Long review alert: Since WMG doesn't allow 2 separate reviews for one wedding. I'm sharing this consolidated review of me and my wife for monks in happiness. Gitesh (Groom's review) All that glitters is not gold, and we learnt it the hard way! Welcome to Monks in Happiness. Well, I don't know where do I start from. We met Ron & Kartik from MIH through the WMG app before my wedding in March 2019. After deliberate thought & research, we decided to go with Monks in happiness. Although we had a max budget of 1.5 lakhs, we extended it to 2.5 after looking at their work samples and reviews and booked MIH for our wedding's photography. But their service & quality of work came as an utter shock to us. I will try and list down the problems I have had with MIH during my experience with them... 1. Delayed delivery: Right from our pre-wedding photoshoot photos to our final delivery, MIH has a habit of not meeting the delivery date on time. We have spoon fed them with all the changes that were required in all the videos, but still they kept making the same mistakes again and again till the point when the damage was irreparable. 2. Poor editing and post production: Although the team seemed quite hardworking and enthusiastic when the wedding was taking place, the major issues arose when they had to deliver the traditional videos. All our videos had to go through endless editing to cover for the blundrous work that was done during shooting the original event. Unfortunately, we had to accept the videos as they were because the original footage was not taken properly. 3. Technically unsound: You would expect a photographer of this level to not make basic mistakes that even a layman can identify. There are a countless number of times when MIH professionals Ron and Kartik have defied logic and jumped over basic technical nuances of photography. For example, our Sangeet video is a complete mess and required 6 editings because the footsteps of the dance was not captured properly. (Still it's not there, we simply accepted the video as it is) 4. Unsatisfactory final product: Even our final albums after printing had to go through changes and some of the pages had to be re-pasted due to pixelated images in the final album. Videos, as mentioned earlier are not up to the mark. 5. Lack of acceptance of their fault: When their product required countless editing and still they couldn't reverse the blunders that they have made, they resorted to the classic policy of "denial". Classic MIH! Our wedding must be just another sale for MIH but for us it was a lifetime event. We have quite literally spoon fed them with all the information they have required during the project, yet they seem to have failed in delivering a product that's worth 250 grand! We have been nothing but patient for over 4 months with MIH hoping at least the final product would be up to the mark but we had to accept the product as it is since we had no other choice left. ---------------------------------------------------------- Pareena (Bride's review) We chose Monks after seeing the reviews on WEDMEGOOD app. With lot of enthusiasm and hope, we went ahead. No doubt the team worked real hard in the whole wedding shoot (at least it looked like it) and the scene looked quite promising. But..the final outcome showed a completely different picture. The videos were terribly shot and edited. You will find blank spots coming in the middle of the video, dance shots being cut from between and the entire sequencing of event being changed. My husband's entire mehndi function was missing in the 20 min cinematic film, until we got them added later. When we brought these problems to them, they couldn't solve them to our expectations. The anchoring and dance shots during sangeet were still missing at some places, this was purely due to poor videography which could not be rectified in the end. The pictures & album didn't match up to the expectations as well. We had to replace some pages in the final album because few pictures were blur. The thing is that when they are out of logical explanations for their work, all they say is "Ma'am we have done 100 weddings successfully till date, how come you are facing so many problems". This might be like 'just another wedding' for you but we are planning on doing this just ONCE in our lifetime. Maybe we're that unluckiest one out of 100 "perfect" weddings that you've shot. Despite all this, all we wanted was a good final product at the end or at least an acknowledgement of the faults that have been made from their end. But sadly, we didn't get either of them. All the best!

Monks In Happiness
Cassius was right when he said, “The fault, Dear Brutus, lies not in our stars but in ourselves.” At Monks In Happiness, We have no qualms in accepting our faults; in fact, we invite criticism as it makes us better. There are always 2 sides of the same coin and we feel we owe to reflect upon the other side of the coin in parallel to experience shared by Gitesh. His experience has been an aberration in our history, else we wouldn’t have racked up 100 weddings in three years including some wonderful relationships that we’ve created for a lifetime. And while we do have certain clarifications to make to the points he made, the foremost thing is our commitment to a technically strong product that preserves the memories of our clients for a lifetime. Even in the case of Gitesh's wedding, we have closed the deliveries as chalked out in our drawn agreement. 1. Delayed Delivery: We humbly submit that 90% of the deliverables were submitted in time and at times we waited for a response from Gitesh to move ahead on the edit. We have records of these conversations. 2. Poor editing and post-production: We provide an extra amount of flexibility to our clients to suggest changes in the edits, as we always believe no two weddings can be the same. Gitesh, unfortunately, chooses to call these edit changes as spoon-feeding. In his traditional videos, he made suggestions of retaining original sounds instead of music overlays as per his choice. In common opinion, this is regarded as a choice of the customer and not an editing mistake. During the edit of his cinematic trailer, we took his concurrence on the choice of songs and created a fully edited first version of the same. Gitesh suggested a change of songs, we advised him on his selection - he stayed put and we re-edited the trailer afresh. Looking at the second trailer he decided to revert to the original stating that his family liked the first one better. 3. Technically unsound: Gitesh's wedding was shot over four days; by our team members. Barring the wedding and a couple of other functions, all other functions including the sangeet were organized in venues which were quite challenging to shoot. However owing to our technical knowledge, which Gitesh claims we lack, we were able to create strong images using which he then decided to make two print albums. 5. Lack of acceptance: We accepted a couple of genuine errors that we made, but refused to accept force-me-downs from his end when it came to certain facts, which are clearly documented in our WhatsApp conversations with him. Gitesh chooses to call them denials. In the end, we would just like to say that you have every right to critique our work and share your feedback and we promise to take it in the best of spirits and further strive to improve what we have to offer. Nothing means more to MIH than see a smile on the bride and groom's face when they see their wedding pictures. With open minds and spirited hearts, we look forward to the support of our lovely brides and grooms and their lovely families who have chosen us as their visuals partners for the most important days of their lives. Our best regards, Kartik & Ron Read Less

Very professional. My dream wedding captured in memories. Right from the pre wedding shoot till the last event in our wedding, they have been capturing every moment. The wedding video brings back beautiful memories and emotions attached to the most eventful day of my life. Ron is lot of fun to work with.

Every Bride plans of having the wedding of her dreams and to achieve that she needs someone who will capture all her dreams and create them into droplets of nostalgia! After doing a lot of research, I got to know about Monks in Happiness through WedMeGood. Its been such a pleasure to work with the entire team! Thanks to them, I feel like getting married once again, just to recreate the memories they've captured for us! Ron and Kartik have been extremely professional and accomodating and their team has been so sweet and understanding! From starting work at 6 in the morning to ending it at 12 in the night, from Haldi and Sangeet to the wedding and reception, they have been with us for every occassion and have created magic in every moment! Cheers to being the best team ever!

Monks In Happiness? Simply 5 stars. Why? Their complete professionalism, ability to make you totally comfortable, seemlessly blend into the wedding madness, spectacular photography and insane talent to pull off same day video edits. These went above and beyond to make our day truly special. I would recommend them hands down.

Well, me and my husband had a very specific photography plan in our mind for our wedding, which involved a lot of detailing. We tried contacting many photographers but none of them impressed us. And then we got to meet Karthik who heard our requirements very carefully and gave it his best shot at completing all of them. Kudos to the Team Monks In Happiness for keeping our wedding memories classy and beautiful. Their working style is so simple yet creative. Glad to see the transition of old-school traditional type of photography and videography into this , by keeping the same essence. Would definitely recommend them. Cheers!

Since weddings are a once in a lifetime event (for most), you want only the best photographers to capture the memories.We stumbled upon MIH after weeks of searching for the perfect photographers that meet our requirements.And we found just the best photographers. From the very first meeting, MIH were quick to understand our requirements.They took note of all the significant ceremonies/moments/people which is very important because the bride & groom may not always be approachable to instruct them about the same. Kartik ensured to have a couple of meetings more before the wedding dates, for us to share any ideas/updates. Right from the the 1st function (Nikah) they displayed their expertise,calibre & professionalism. At most times we weren't aware they had clicked our pictures until we saw them later on. They have the ability to turn a not-so-good location into an amazing backdrop for your pictures. The MIH team were punctual, well coordinated & kind to our guests. Throughout the course of our events we felt a growing comfort level with their entire team. We were surprised as to how they blended with our friends & families & were not just the photographers or guests anymore, they were a part of our wedding. The photos & videos we received were brilliant to say the least. They have delivered what they had promised. We have had a amazing time with you guys. To sum up, MIH are hardworking professionals who are full of out of the box ideas & concepts. They have been amazing in terms of planning, coordination, quality & delivery. I would urge you to meet them, see their work & consider them as your wedding photographers. Thank you Monks in Happiness & good luck! Alifiya & Murtaza

It was a wonderful experience with Monks in Happiness. From the Day 1 Ron was very amiable and gave us enough time to list down all our requirements and also gave us leads for trusted local vendors for our wedding. They were amazing in conceptualising each photograph and the video. The package was also personalised as per our requirements. The pictures came out really well and had all the delightful moments and emotions captured. They really worked hard to cover a night long wedding and still came out with such amazing pictures. Really a hard working and creative team. We wish them all the best for all their future endeavors. Surya & Rishabh

To have MIH cover our wedding was easily the best decision ever. They were just like family. Ron and Kartik understood exactly what we wanted from the first meeting itself. The whole team is super accommodating and friendly. Everyone in the MIH team very energetic and aims to get the best out of every event. They were on their toes the entire time covering functions from both the sides. The best part was that they made us as well as our family feel super comfortable in front of the camera ! Without a doubt we would recommend them to everyone. By the end of it you will gain amazing friends in Ron and Kartik. Only love and best wishes for the entire team !

For all the people who are going through these reviews to know about these "Monks", let me save your time and efforts : Contact them, let them do the rest and you can thank me later. :) Our experience with them has been amazing and it is out of pure joy and content that we whole heartedly recommend "Monks in Happiness" to any couple out there browsing through the sea of 'people who own some fancy photography equipment'. They are everything that you look for in a photography team. Being an extremely shy guy, I was very apprehensive about doing any of this in the first place. But the way they made us feel comfortable is outstanding (to say the least). They work as a team, think as a team, are very well prepared, are extremely dedicated, are very professional and have an unparalleled sense of attachment towards the emotions that fly around during weddings. It is this ability of theirs to capture such emotions that separates them from the lot. They are the ones whom you would definitely be friends with even after the wedding. Their eyes are like shutters and their minds are like lenses. Wishing them all the very best in their endeavours.

Thanks Harshad for your lovely comments. We love you guys and loved shooting your wedding!!!
