Absolutely the best! Ashwin & Jhalak are not only super talented but really great and humble! They were like family to us during our wedding and made sure everyone was comfortable and having a good time. They brought an army of people to make sure they got the best shots for our wedding. Very rarely do you see a personal connection with your vendors, these guys are our friends for life! :) Thank you so so much! Source

Ashwin and his team from Shades were more excited to click us than we ourselves were! They didn’t leave any stone un-turned. In fact, even gave us entry suggestions for some functions! The entire team is so warm and these guys are very professional. Again, I had no second options in this category and so glad it all fell in place.Source

Just looooove Shades!!!! Ashwin and Jhalak covered my wedding, and I couldn't have asked for anything better. I came through their Instagram page, and was blown away with the way they capture moments, specially the colors which Shades use in their photographs is what sets them apart. Not only they both are professional when it comes to work but they are as friendly as one could ask for!!! We had an intimate wedding in Thailand, and Ashwin and Jhalak were there, not as a vendor but they were like a family to us. No silly poses, no wastage of time, made me and fiance so comfortable with each other. Me and my whole family loooved the photographs...!!!

The best experience we had with Ashwin and his team. We booked Shades a year ago from our wedding. The first thing we did when our wedding dates came was to block Ashwin. My friends could'nt stop raving about their work and the positive attitude they keep while shooting a wedding. And the photographs, in love with each and every one. Ashwin didn't only shoot my wedding, but he was the one who helped me in finding so many vendors, for which I can't thank him enough. He's so welcoming and warm, which I don't see in many wedding photographers now days. From the day Shades team reached the venue, to the time everyone checked out, they made sure that each and everything was covered. And of course how can I forget about the pre-wedding shoot! The love which Ashwin takes out from a couple and show it through his camera is worth appreciating. I don't regret spending a single penny spend on my photographers.

Absolutely treat to work with Ashwin and Jhalak. We had a palace wedding in Udaipur, and Ashwin and his team were always on their toes to make our wedding memorable. Ashwin is the most humble person I have come across. His aesthetics and photography sense is to die for. I personally belong to the creative industry and when I was jotting down the vendors for my wedding, Shades was the first name that came to my mind. Clearly one of the best wedding photographers in India, truly worth​ the money.

Absolutely unprofessional and unpleasant experience. Keep searching for a good one. Out of this photographer couple, Zhalak is a good photographer and a humble person. Her husband Ashwin needs to learn a lot from her. He ruined the prewedding photoshoot day for us. He does the photoshoot to make his insta profile better and not for making your day special. If you observe their insta profile carefully, you will see that they have same editing filters and same poses. He claims that he will take your candid pictures and he will edit pictures in such a way that you will look thin and beautiful. Please do not believe it like I did. He applied exact same filter for half of my photos and ruined the beautiful blue color of lake in the background. He has used same filter for his Kashmir photos. He did not ask us which pictures we liked / want edited. He chose random pics and edited them. We asked him for all unprocessed photos and realized that there are good pics clicked by zhalak which he did not edit. Not sure why he did not edit any of his wife's clicks which we liked. And beware: he gossips! He has told me gossip about all his texas, new york and indian clients and their relatives. And I am sure that he will gossip about us too. He does not know how to work in different light conditions. He does not know how to edit pictures in such a way that people look beautiful. He is not very energetic. He was not ready to do shoots in all conditions, his wife was ready for the shoot. He kept on giving reasons - its too sunny, its too windy, too foggy - his wife was ready to take pictures but he did not let her. At the end he clicked our photos in shadow of tree which looks weird because there is weird tree shadows on our faces - he did not tell us that while shooting and did not even fix the shadow in photoshop - its easy to fix it. When we said that we did not like the edits, he was not ready to make us happy by redoing the edits of photos we liked. I have ruined my special day because of him. I hope you do not do the same mistake.

Nishigandha & Aashish, this was the least expected thing which you have done over here after wasting our time, money and efforts which we both did. If you expect us to make you look like someone which you are not, we can’t do that. We made you so much thin in photographs, but then also you cried about not making you thin and beautiful. Now that you have been so shallow on social media about Ashwin, let me(Jhalak) clear your whole picture. First of all, if you think the edits have been done by Ashwin, you are totally wrong! He clicked the pictures which you thought I did, and I edited the pictures which you thought he did. Ashwin is least bothered about uploading stuff on social media. If we was so active on Instagram, he would have been active on his personal account as well, which you can see that he is not. All the stories which you see on our Instagram account, I upload them, yes me Jhalak not Zhalak. I feel really pity for guys like you, who just want to trash someone or the other just because they have the power to do it on social media. Nishigandha, Everyone in this world chit chats, sharing all their past experiences which you called gossip! Didn’t you? But I won’t go down to your level and say publicly what all you gossiped about your fiancé! We wasted our 3 whole days for your shoot in San Francisco and you think that we have ruined your special day!!! Now let’s come to those points one by one: If you think that we have same poses and same filters on all our photos, then why the hell did you hire us? Why don’t you learn basics of photography first and then write all this? Do you understand, that a particular shoot needs to be in same fashion? Do you understand that a shoot needs to be styled properly? Now days people think that applying filters through some phone apps is called editing, but let me tell you, we take every picture from the scratch and colour correct properly in Lightroom, which you call filters. You have all the raw photos, why don’t you put your filters on all the raw photos and edit them. If you want us to over saturate each and every photograph, we are sorry, we don’t deliver that kind of work. The shadow which you are referring to, is called a silhouette, are you aware about this concept? Or you just say whatever you feel like is correct, just because you want to degrade someone? Let’s discuss being humble! The shoot was supposed to be of 2 days. You asked to extend our stay because you’ll be tired and all from the drive, we agreed to that without asking you for extra money. You invited us to stay in your home, which had 3 rooms, and still we had to sleep in your living room on the floor. Guys, at least be a little courteous towards your guests, oh no! That can’t be it, because you are too humble to do that right! Now let’s talk about the shoot! We were suppose to reach Yosemite on time, so that we can start the shoot early next day! That sure didn’t happen. Half of the time we were just driving in your rented car, and half of the time you wanted to eat and waste time. And FYI, for a pre-wedding shoot, you may ask any of our previous clients, how much time do we generally take to complete the shoot! You may go to world’s most beautiful location, but if the shoot is not styled properly and the couple has no chemistry at all, and on top of that you’re not giving proper time to the photographer, we can’t do anything. Forget about the timing, when we asked you that we want either morning light or evening light, you were adamant on driving to a location which was pretty far from where we were, and till the time we reached, it was just 5 mins sunlight left, and you expect us to take 100 photos with 200 different poses in that frame of time. Be realistic man, it’s not a shoot which you do with your camera fixed on a tripod with a static frame where you don’t have any character. Now a days, everyone with a DSLR think that they are born photographers and can trash fellow photographer by being dirty about them on social media. When we had a discussion Ashwin had already told you that location doesn’t matter for us, what matters is how you feel and how you enjoy being with each other. Now let’s talk about day 2! You wanted to take rest on the day which we wasted because of you, the same day which you asked us to sleep on the floor in your 3 bedroom house. We obviously had to shift to a hotel for which we never asked you to pay! If you would have told us that you don’t have space in your house, we could have done our bookings before hand. Let’s come to day 3! You wanted us to take the photos on a beach! For which you took us on a 4 hour drive, in a bad bad weather. You already knew about the weather conditions but then also you were adamant. If you remember we had asked you to go to a beach in SFO, where we had shot 2 days back, but you never listened to us. The time we reached the destination, the weather condition was so bad that we couldn’t stand on our feet. We even have a video of how bad the sand storm was. The sand was everywhere, in our gadgets, hair, mouth, do you think that was a very favourable condition to shoot? And Nishigandha, tell me one thing, did we charge you for the second day (actually third day)? Talk about being unprofessional huh! Let’s do one thing! Let me upload the pictures here, and leave it for the people to judge what wrong we did to them. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/5ffowzl63uvycyb/AAB3_mgirUgJw5TJdc7e-4hoa?dl=0 Read Less

I think out of all the vendors I selected for my wedding and all the expenses we had to make, this one was so truly worth it. Ashwin and Jhalak capture everything so beautifully and have given me pictures I would fondly look at for all my life. I would strongly recommend everyone to not think twice before picking them up as their wedding photographer.
