I am so happy we had Bombay brigade cover our wedding, we genuinely had so much fun because of them. They are very highly organized, detailed, on time and an extremely fun team. I still look back at out videos and photos and can't stop smiling. Look no further and book them.

Mahesh, Khalid and the rest of their team were warm, punctual and proper professionals. They were very well organised with their plan, non intrusive and captured truly candid moments and captured such wonderful moments in the form of photographs and films that we'll be cherishing for a lifetime! Also I've heard many nightmare stories of working with photographers where the photos or videos are super delayed and come well after 4-6 months after the enthusiasm of the wedding has died down. The Bombay Brigade managed to give us photos and the trailer in under a month almost 60 days ahead of schedule — which I think is bloody amazing! If you're looking for a solid team that you can rely on for your wedding shoot, don't think just hire them!

I am writing this after more than a year of my wedding. To start with, if you really love candid pictures - Hire them. If you are looking for truely professional team - Hire them. If you really want to spend your money on one worth thing on your wedding - Hire them. Mahesh and team worked so professionally during all the events. We didn't feel someone was around us clicking pictures and recording videos. But when I saw the end results, I was awestruck. They captured all the beautiful moments, even without us discussing it in detail prior to the wedding. I gave them no instructions about anything and still they did their job so diligently. Then why I am writing all this after a year? Because I wanted some modifications with the teaser and I told Mahesh I'll be sharing instructions . But due to some busy schedule I couldn't. However, as soon as I contacted Mahesh back he responded immidiately and made all the changes as soon as he could. I am so happy the way he deals with his clients. Professional yet friendly and brilliant with his work. Couldn't expect for more cooperation than this from anyone. I am thankful to the wonderful memories Bombay Brigade have given us. I can watch my wedding teaser, film, pictures all day long. They are so beautiful and candid in real sense. I wish more success to his team for all the upcoming projects. Cheers Guys! Shared some of my Favorite pictures here ❤️ With Love, Prapti & Madhurjya

What an amazing day with an amazing photographers. My husband and I were going to celebrate our wedding in Goa and we wanted to document the day with photos that we could look back upon. Prior to our wedding, we researched and looked up professional photographers whose work would be able to capture what we had in mind. After looking through the galleries of different photographers online, Mahesh’s work stood out and we were really impressed with his portfolio. We contacted him, hoping that he would be available on our day and luckily for us, he was. My hubby& I are different personalities, I likes getting clicked and looks good in most of them & He is the stark opposite where He hate his pictures being taken altogether. I was worried that He will end up being the only groom who may not look great in his pictures. I was wrong, they captured such beautiful moments of us a couple, with our families & friends. Celebrating, drunk, sober, dancing, laughing what have you, they were there for all of those. We ended up with beautiful couple candid pics. Everything about our photos scream energy and happiness. Every photo is so different to the last, different angle, different light, different background. We couldn’t have asked for a more helpful photographers from start to finish. He was also beyond accommodating, and went above and beyond what would be expected of a photographer and treated you like a friend. To our delight, a few short days after our wedding Mahesh sent us the teaser and film were ready for review in their entirely. The end result was breathtaking and second to none. Mahesh and the team has left us with such a detailed storybook of our wedding day. We really cannot recommend The Bombay Brigade’s enough to anyone who is looking to have their memorable occasions captured beautifully and candidly in photographs. Not only will you have great photos an film, but you will enjoy the whole experience as well. Again, many, many thanks to Mahesh and the team.

They are very nice and very cooperative, they took all our best angles and made us try many poses. They didn't in any sort of ritual also and did their work with utter professionalism.They are under budget and take great candids as well. Really glad we chose them for our wedding functions.

Mahesh, Khalid and their team are such warm people. They weren't intrusive at all and have such a great work ethic. Even when everything was wrapped up whenever they saw people clicking pictures, they'd put their food down and pick up their cameras! Did end up making me feel quite guilty :P They were punctual not only for the events but also in terms of deliverables.Source

The Bombay brigade surpassed our expectations not just with their deliverables but also their dedication to the work. The pictures and especially the videos (both trailer and cinematic) were beautifully captured and it’s the closest we can come to reliving those 2 magical days making it worth every penny and more. The team was always prepared and reached the venue well before time. We did not have to worry about coordinating with them as they were completely self sufficient. They were extremely non intrusive during the ceremonies and it shows in our pictures. Both Tanay and I are usually very uncomfortable getting pictures taken but I was so pleasantly surprised to see the beautiful shots they were able to capture of us looking far from awkward. More than once I saw the team pull out their equipment while they were wrapping up or eating just because they saw someone posing casually for pictures on their phones. While this may be taken for granted as part of their work I believe it’s what makes the difference between those who are passionate and those earning a living. They were also professional with deliveries - giving us realistic estimates and taking our feedback. There wasn’t much need for changes but I asked for some change in the video which was updated before the day ended! Mahesh, Khalid and team are such a pleasure to interact with. They have a very honest and humble approach to their work and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.

After searching for dozens of wedding photographers for months, we came across The Bombay Brigade and instantly decided to go with them. And trust me it was one of the BEST decisions. Mahesh and his team were fantastic, super friendly and extremely co-operative. We had the team for almost all our functions, from engagement to wedding, and they captured all our special moments exactly the way we wanted. The wedding trailer and movie is made so beautifully that we laughed and cried while reliving those moments. Thank you so much, Mahesh, Aadil and the entire team of Bombay Brigade for capturing the most precious days of our lives.

While the pictures were fine, their video shooting and editing skills are less than amateur. Would strongly suggest not giving them videography if you want your special moments to be documented well. Our "cinematic film" and most of the feedback points are not even incorporated. For "professionals" the quality is just plain unacceptable. Lazy shooting and thoughtless editing. In some parts there is no link between what the background dialogue or music and the visuals. Randomly cut. Khalid - our photographer did a good job. However, the video was a colossal disappointment. Even after 3 rounds of detailed feedback. Not worth it.

Hey Manjiri , this was the least expected thing which you have done over here after wasting our time and efforts and that too well played after you got all your deliverables ! Let me break down the sequence of events here : After the wedding, you never returned back our calls for any video changes and all the communications were done through your dad and your brother in law, Rahul. You guys were never ever in sync about the changes suggested (and mind you, we got the changes after multiple round of follow-up with you guys. Ever heard of photographers repeatedly following up with their clients for changes ? ) . We understand that Rahul comes from a film-industry background who has his own ideas about the edits and we happily incorporated all the possible changes suggested by him to make the teaser better . There are no retakes in a wedding and this industry does not work like film industry where you have a pre defined setup, lights and multiple retakes. Still, whatever changes were possible we incorporated to match your taste ! We almost re-did the entire teaser for you ! Please try to understand that our team is the only constant factor in a wedding and you are the only variable in this equation. We try to get the best out of the settings that we are provided on the wedding day. For "professionals" the quality is just plain unacceptable. Lazy shooting and thoughtless editing. In some parts there is no link between what the background dialogue or music and the visuals. Randomly cut. Really ? You yourself redirected us to Rahul saying that you have no idea about cinematic shoots and edits and suddenly you did a crash course in it ? After the second change was done, here was the appreciation mail from Rahul which is clearly contradictory to what you have written (Attaching snapshot as well for everyone's reference). Care to explain ? Overall, this is MUCH MUCH MUCH better! Thank you for all your efforts. The music is lovely and creates the emotion you are trying to evoke. The message is clear and the fun and maza of the events comes across. We 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. I went all the way to Thane to check out your venue before a few months of wedding on your request to provide some inputs about decor and all . Your father was not satisfied with his interview on wedding day and he asked to get a re shot done later. We happily agreed and did a re-shot in peak season of December, wasting one day and without charging a single dime extra when we could have easily said No ! The payment was done late and we happily obliged to your convenience. Your father, with no understanding how this process works, was extremely rude in his follow up calls for re-edited teaser. When I tried to make him understand that we re-edit the teaser within 15 days of your suggested changes and we got the changes and clarifications from Rahul pretty late and you cannot expect we will deliver immediately as we have ongoing projects in our edit timeline . We cannot out of the blue stop the ongoing edit and cater yours ! Reasonable much ? Your father response in exact words was ' I have seen more summers that you, don't teach me how it works' ! Seriously ? That's the level of arrogance ? I do expect a little more maturity from a man of his age. It was nothing less than a mental trauma to deal with your father .I pray no one , I repeat no one gets an unreasonable client like you ever ! We do understand this review was a result of pressure from your father. Though , we feel why we are defending ourself when we are not at wrong, the social media is a cruel place and It should know both sides of the story. Have you ever thought why your experience was contradictory to all the other reviews on our profile ? Something does not add up here ? PS: For everyone seeing this, we have not uploaded a single photo or video on our portfolio from this wedding due the horrible experience we had with this client. If you have any doubt want to see the work in concern , we will be more than happy to share the drive link with you. We have made some amazing friends among our clients along this whole journey of The Bombay Brigade and our cinematic video work speaks for our credibility and professionalism. The Bombay Brigade is an endeavour of two engineers who are working hard day in and day out for their sheer passion. We do not treat clients as clients but as friends for whom we can go a little extra mile to curate wonderful memories for a lifetime. You just say whatever you feel like is correct, just because you want to degrade someone? Our work is online for everyone to judge in the open. We aren't saying we are the best and we will never say that even 5 years down the line. Everyday we strive to be a better version of ourself than yesterday. We would have definitely taken your feedback as a constructive one , had it been one but you and me know the intention of this review was never a constructive feedback . Get well soon.

Mahesh and Aadil were FANTASTIC and an absolute pleasure to work with. They captured our most special moments and the pictures and videos were absolutely stunning. Aaggrim and I are so grateful to the Bombay Brigade team for creating these beautiful memories for us! The best thing about Mahesh and his team is that they work very closely with you on the edits of the photos and videos and are EXTREMELY accommodating with changes, feedback and timelines. Attention to detail and great aesthetic comes through in their work! These guys are great and will do their very best to capture the most intricate details and beautiful moments of your big day!!
