It is one of the most important elements of the wedding because photographs stay with you forever. We had personal inventory of more than 70 photographers from across India for selection. We saw potential in Lakshya's work as he has done work of the level of experienced names in the business with his skills in such young age. He is one of the most energetic and enthusiastic guy in his field. Works well if he gets the content right. You can see in his body language the excitement to capture if he sees a good moment. Having said that he still has to grow/learn in his professional approach and outlook. His enthusiasm get wings with excellent people in his team (Arshadeep Singh Khalsa, Inderjeet Singh what a peace to have them around -excellent human beings, Titu Ji - what an experienced traditional photographer, a must have for your wedding - you will not loose upon a single shot). We are Looking forward to see his work before we can say more. Obviously things are never perfect but mistakes could be ignored if the end result is good. You can see our detailed review on Lakshay's photography wed me good /facebook page later. Source

Planning a wedding in India while sitting thousands of miles away is definitely a challenging task. The task of choosing someone to capture the wedding you planned so meticulously is even more challenging. We came across Lakshya Manwani Photography/Safarnama films on Wedmegood while searching for the perfect team to capture the most memorable days of our lives. Their work we saw online was not over the top but told a story?and each story was unique. If we weren?t sure of our choice after seeing their work, the deal was definitely sealed after talking to Lakshya the first time. Reaching out to Lakshya and communicating with him was very easy and his pleasing personality shone through from the first conversation itself where he made us feel like he has known us for quite a while. Lakshya was all ears when we shared ideas and expectations with him over the course of next few months. Since we were getting to India just a few days prior to the ceremonies, despite being in the midst of a very busy wedding season, he generously agreed to do a pre wedding shoot just a day prior to our first ceremony. Not only that, he went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable during the shoot (case in point: arranging chips and soda for us in the middle of nowhere). As with all Indian weddings, some ceremonies started on time but most didn?t. Lakshya?s team (comprising of Lakshya himself, Bajrang, Inderjeet, and Zuber) was very understanding and many times even skipped meals to make sure they were covering all aspects of the wedding and related festivities. A special word of appreciation here for Inderjeet who is one of the sweetest people to work with?always with a camera in his hand and a smile on his face. Alert: All the moms will love these guys because of how polite and respectful they are. Mine is still in awe of Lakshya because of the respect he showed towards her by touching her feet every time he saw her. A couple weeks after the wedding/reception, the raw images and video clips were delivered to us on a hard drive and the quality of both was above and beyond what we had asked for. The toughest part of this whole experience was having to pick a few hundred pictures for albums out of thousands of stunning shots. It?s been two weeks and I have gone through all the pictures multiple times but am yet to limit myself to just 300 odd. We are yet to see the trailer or the video but if the raw video clips are anything to go by, they will be nothing but spectacular and we are super excited to get our hands on them and to share them with friends and family who have been waiting very anxiously. Thanks for amazing work Lakshya and team. We know that looking at the pictures and videos will always bring smiles to our faces and will make us relive the most memorable three days of our lives over and over again. Also, consider this an informal contract for covering all the future weddings in the family.

We were extremely picky about hiring the right team for r wedding and Laksh was r preference from day one. First reason being that he makes it look so easy but the content is surely to amaze you. He is not talkative but enough for us to understand his point of view. He craves for details - may it be decor, outfits or even the food lineup. We were told that Laksh doesn’t shoot often and hence, he might not attend our events except the wedding day. But to our surprise, he did attend all our events and his team was the first to reach on each of them! They handled all lighting issues, suggested ideas for entry for both of us, and even giggled around with our friends! All of this have now blossomed into a good relationship with Laksh! We had to leave the country after 12 days from the wedding and we had requested the team to provide us with the entire dump before we vanish, and with zero delays our data reached us safely and on time. It’s been 6 months to our wedding and we r really proud of ourselves for choosing Laksh and team for our big day!

My son was struggling to find a photographer in the amount we had budgeted, and since he and the bride were in Australia, it was over a month and they had decided nothing. That’s when I stepped in and started looking for teams. Safarnama (Lakshya) was the 6th-7th team I was meeting. It was through a friend’s Recommendation. Though he quoted above my budget, but we immediately decided that this is who we want. He tends to charm you in ways you won’t notice easily. He talks straight and to the point. Ours was a destination wedding and me and my wife were particular about all r family members being covered. He wanted to speak with the couple and understand their needs and likes and dislikes etc. I was so impressed! He spoke to them over video call and today here we are! Thank you team - Sabby;Inder;Lucky;Harish;Rahul and Lakshya for all your efforts. You’ve been professional with us and god bless you for all ur future projects. You will definitely go a long way. Much love.

i got married in dec and we chose a common team to cover r events. Lakshya at first strikes off really well and offers us a decent package as well. we were unsure of him after reading a couple of reviews but he was quite straight forward and honest about them and told us to see both sides of the story. we r glad we went ahead with him n his team who r really friendly and fun! his choice of music and his eye for chemistry is the reason i give him an extra star!

It’s always a task to decide on a common artist who will cover both the sides of the wedding, specially when we know the risk involved in hiring a single team for both bride and groom. We too had arguments, but Lakshay helped us in the best way possible to understand why there should be a single team handling the entire event. Ours was a one day affair from morning to midnight and we wanted this day to be perfect without any flaws! Kudos to his team for capturing each and every person important to us! The processed images look beautiful and they speak out for themselves. We’ve also received our small video and shall post a feedback for that on their videography account!
