Rishab, Aarti and their entire team are absolutely wonderful people - kind, understanding and most importantly flexible! Their adapt to your vibe as a couple or a family - for example, having a destination wedding and being fairly camera shy we didn't have any pre-wedding pics or any of that, but they did a beautiful job being actually 'candid' throughout the wedding, and the pics are all a delight! Most importantly for me, they understood the nuances of each family and were willing to be SO understanding with our challenges, and help me through them.. In short, of course most photographers out there are great and can deliver great work, but what makes these guys different is that they were sincere, caring and easy to work with, without any constrains or fancies, and which I appreciated the most.! P.S. their choice of MUSIC for the wedding videos is THE BEST!!!!!

Candid tales is an accurate definition of amazing team work! A young and vibrant team that made a connection with us from the time we met them. The entire team put in a lot of efforts to get to know us & our personalities before shooting our events. They instantly understood our request of keeping the video and photo content modern, energetic and not too traditional. Although being camera shy, the team made us feel so comfortable and artistically brought out and captured each and every emotion of ours through their creativity and style of shooting. Though they worked crazy hours -they made shooting seem so effortless and constantly had smiling and warm faces throughout the events. As Phnom Penh, Cambodia was a new market to host an Indian wedding the team ensured that they did a thorough homework on the market & scouted the most authentic and culture driven venues for our shoot. Looking at the videos and photos still gives us goosebumps and only reminds us of what a memorable and beautiful moment our wedding was. We will never forget the surprise they guys gave us with the same day edit! A heartfelt thank you to Rishabh, Aarti, Cecil, Piyush, Aman and for your time, patience, calmness and for keeping it real!

I can unreservedly say that the Candid Tales team saved our wedding. At every step of the wedding process, Candid Tales surpassed what seemed imaginable. After having traveled to our venue overnight, Aarti, Rishabh, Matthew, and Piyush uncomplainingly went straight to work. And the work they did was not only truly close to perfection, it was work that compensated for the many, many things that went wrong with our wedding. (We were not as fortunate with others we worked with, such as the wedding planner.) The team rose before dawn the first morning to capture early morning drone footage and labored unceasingly until 4 a.m. on the final night of the festivities to complete the couples interviews before leaving for their next engagement. Here are just a few of the many miracles Candid Tales performed for us. • Aarti stepped in and stepped up to correct what the wedding planner did wrong (almost everything) – way outside the scope of “video and photography.” (In addition to all her artistic gifts, Aarti has considerable experience as a wedding planner. She instantly spots what is going wrong and identifies potential problems. She “fixes” details that others have overlooked, misinterpreted, or simply ignored.) • When our sangeet was cut short by some unfortunate circumstances and we were devastated that we could not perform the couples’ dance that we had been practicing for months, the Candid Tales team comforted us and kindly stayed up into the early hours of the morning to record our dance — without music. The editing team not only overlaid the audio tracks, but deftly made it appear as if our grand finale dance was performed just as planned, in front of an attentive audience. • When we could not quite understand what pose or expression the team recommended during a photoshoot session, Aarti and Rishabh—who are married—modeled for us. Following their lead made it much easier. The only critical comment I can offer is that, try as you might, you can never look as good or expressive as Aarti does! Still, you can console yourself by seeing that you look MUCH BETTER in your photos than in reality. • When we asked to make a music video just before the wedding ceremony, Aarti came up with choreography and the team captured it in a single continuous shot. The whole process astoundingly took less than an hour and did not delay the baraat and the resulting video was magnificent. • When the bride and groom entry we had planned was impossible because of the wedding planner’s errors, Aarti took on the responsibility of redesigning the set at the last moment and made the entry look seamless. • Despite all the mishaps of our wedding ceremony in actuality, our video shows only perfection. Somehow, they captured our love for one another and made our entire experience look magical. My wife and I watch the video that they made over and over. Not only is it gorgeously shot and meticulously edited, but it erases our memories of so much that was negative. Furthermore, the entire team is talented, diligent, accommodating, and just plain unbelievably good. And another pro tip: whatever advice Aarti and Rishabh offer, accept it gratefully and implement it without question. These are true artists. They know the best lighting, the best décor, the best poses, the best expressions. And in addition to their stunning visual work, they are honest, trustworthy, and unfailingly helpful. My wife and I owe a great debt of gratitude to Candid Tales. Without their guidance and hard work, all the misadventures of our wedding would have left us desolate, and the video record would have been just a mediocre representation of a wedding that fell far short of our dreams. Aarti, Rishabh, Matthew, Piyush—these four individuals do the work of an entire film crew—and I am not exaggerating here. Use Candid Tales and I can guarantee that your wedding video will be envied by all who see it. Get ready for a deluge of “oohs” and “ahs” and “beyond beautiful” comments. So if you are wondering whether Candid Tales is the way to go, wonder no longer. I can’t find praise high enough to describe how great this group is. People who use the phrase “movie magic” don’t know just how all-encompassing that description can be. If it is magic that you want, these are your magicians. If you are looking for a miracle, here are your miracle workers. We are still searching for that right adjective. Brilliant. Breathtaking. Astonishing. Creative. Dependable. Meticulous. Gifted. Resourceful. Best. Thank you, Candid Tales team. Your presence and your product were, without a doubt, the best wedding gift that we received or could have received. We are grateful beyond words. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7c16A5ybbCY&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR0OGCWrgB3TXutGGN8ZHLFwB9TgI-VQH-246JaKEUhejvuNPiW68sn9XBk

AMAZING EXPERIENCE. You will not get a better Photography/ Videography team for your special day. The entire team of Candid Tales was extremely professional, always polite, always on time and always ready to capture all the special moments, and every team member was well versed with their job. The pictures and videos that I have got for my Wedding functions are spectacular and for the price that they charged, I'd say every single penny I spent was definitely worth it. There were people quoting me twice the price, and the quality of their work wasn't even half when compared to Candid Tales. Word of caution, book in advance. These guys are super busy, all year round, so you would need to book well in advance if you want their experienced, well-priced services.

We chose Candid tales because we liked what we saw in their portfolio. When Rishabh and his team arrived to Dubai, we loved the whole experience of working with them. They made us feel like we knew each other from long. There was never a dull moment while interacting with the team. Each one of them were extremely friendly and helpful. They were taking care of us like family. While having a professional approach to cover all the events, they were very warm. The Teaser video that was played on the reception night exceeded our expectations. Every moment was captured and portrayed beautifully. The video was very magical and had an impact on all our guests. Everyone who saw it could not stop appreciating their work. A big thank you to the entire candid tales team, Rishabh, Aarti, Rahul, Matthew & Piyush. Each one of them is an expert and they make a perfect team. You can’t go wrong if you select them to capture your special moments. I strongly recommend them to everyone!

We did a lot of research before hiring our wedding photographers and none impressed us as much as Candid Tales' work did. The simplicity and intensity of capturing important moments with grace is their strong point. They know framing which is one of the most important thing when it comes to photography and videography. The dreamy edits on videos, perfect choice of music and their sheer dedication made it worth it!! If it's your big day, you can 100% trust these amazingly talented people to cover it for you and be completely at peace knowing they are gonna do an excellent job!

We came across Candid Tales on YouTube, from seeing a trailer they had previously done at the venue we had booked, we loved the look of their work and knew immediately they were who we wanted to capture our wedding. We couldn’t have been any more impressed with their hard work, enthusiasm and determination during our 5 day wedding week! They were so friendly and professional to work with and the trailer they produced on our last event left all our guests blown away!! Amazing team!!

Rishabh, Piyush and Aarti were introduced to us as our wedding and prewedding videographers by our photographers. Being overseas, I had very little information or knowledge about them but trusted my photographers and went ahead with them. I was already impressed while I did my research but still had my reservations. But all of it changed the moment they showcased the same day edit at our reception. The work was beautiful and we almost had tears in our eyes. Few things I would like to emphasize: Work: (Same day edit) - It was beautiful - They made us look amazing and so dreamy - Captured important details and moments Team: - 3 different personalities but make a great team to work with - Creative and loads of talent - Aarti is amazing to be there not only as your videographer but your support system while you go through a choas of things that happen - Very patient and easy to work with - Hardworking bunch as they were committed to give us the experience of the same day edit - Deliverables on time We are excited and can't to see our full video and hoping it will be as good as the same day edit. **** Highly recommended

Candid tales did a really good job with our wedding photography and videography. They were constantly covering the events without being in anyone?s way. The same day edit was loved by everyone and the regal shots they took are our favourite.

Extremely satisfied with the photos and videos delivered by Rishabh and the team, they are really cooperative and fun to work with. They captured our wedding in Samode last December and all our guests were really surprised by the same day edit prepared by them.

This is a fabulous, young and passionate bunch of people who like to experiment different things. We have had the pleasure of working with them during our wedding in jim corbett and pre wedding in Chennai and thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent together. They are cooperative, understanding and they like to go candid then posing. Most impressive is their style of filming with no bollywood theme or song! If you want to get something that isn't monotonous and looks natural, must try them. We are highly impressed and thankful to team Candid Tales! :)

We had the pleasure of working with Candid Tales for our wedding in Goa a month ago. From the outset, Rishabh replied promptly to messages and emails. We were very impressed with the professional attitude of all the team members and developed a good rapport immediately. Our guests were left speechless when they watched the "same day edit" trailer that the team put together for our Reception. They captured our moments so beautifully- we were in awe ourselves. Judging by the exceptional quality and creativity of the team's work, we are very much excited and looking forward to the final edits. Thank you Candid Tales! Jas and Amit, London UK

We had the joy of working with Candid Tales during our wedding in Jaipur. He captured every detail so beautifully that aptly represented the type of relationship my husband and I have. As their name suggests, their team is able to catch the subtle things from the groom's face as you walk down the aisle to your grandmother's reaction to seeing her French grand son in law doing bhangra! Your own wedding flies by so fast but with Candid Tales you truly feel you can relive those moments.

It was a great experience from the pre-wedding shoot to the actual wedding day. Throughout the experience Rishabh and his team showed great professionalism and talent in the way they took the photographs. They made us feel very comfortable. The same day edit presented at our wedding reception really impressed all of our guests. Looking back at the photographs really makes us smile and want to re-live the experience again.</span></p> Source
