Our wedding day was a simple, small and intimate get together of family and very close friends with absolutely no frills. Yet Ajay and his team managed to capture the beauty, the emotions and the sheer joy of the occassion - basically all the things you can't put to words - so impeccably! Every photo tells a story of the kind of relationship my husband and I share. Shades by 43 are very creative, adding a unique touch to every picture. All the pictures are truly magical - when we saw them for the first time, we were in awe! So happy we chose them for our special day. Thanks so much Shades by 43 :)

When it came to wedding the best advice I have ever been given is book the best photographer you can find. When we started looking around for our photographer, we came across shades by 43 on Wedmegood and loved their work and knew they would capture the moments just the way i want them to... Even after fighting with a tight schedule they managed to "SMILE" which was contiguous. Which they have been insisting me to do throughout my wedding and told not to in my reception. We completely trusted this team with our important day and we were not disappointed. The photos are spectacular and also the video. My friends are proud of my decision of choosing them. As a bride I am thrilled to have these beautiful photos and videos.... I cannot recommend "Shades by 43" highly enough. They are the best... Their patience and understanding made our day less stressful. All the best!! And Now they are my photographers for life!! :)))))

I am short of words to describe Ajay and his wonderfully talented team. You'll feel like they're your friends and you've always known them. Their passion for photography is unmatched, They're so hardworking and will go to every length to get the perfect shot. Ajay kept me cool and calm throughout the day. The boys are super cool, they've created lifetime memories for us. Thank you Ajay, Eldhose, Basel, vyshnav, Ananth, Jijo, and Jeeson. The entire family only wants you guys for all future weddings. Lots of love and best wishes Asha and Deon

Again with this one, I researched and picked the photographer because I wanted someone based in Kerala who would be well aware of Malayali traditions. I went with a photography company called Shades by 43 and the principal photographer was Jikson Francis! Again I just could not be happier with Jikson’s work! He delivered exactly what I wanted. He was so patient with me and tolerated every single one of my bridal tantrums with a smile on his face. He is such a fun person to be around and to work with and I would highly recommend him! Source

It is every girl's dream to choose the best team to copy their most precious and best moments with utmost perfection into pictures that would stay with her for time immemorial. My eyes hooked on Shades by 43 instagram page when I was hunting for a team of photographers for my wedding n lo, I could easily communicate all my demands to them in the first meeting itself. I had the best of both worlds, their photos were all traditional yet styled in contemporary manner. The final product was delivered on time, all in a pocket friendly cost. So if you don't wanna risk your D-Day photography and entrust it in safe hands, Shades by 43 is where u should go.I highly recommend this brand.

I absolutely loved all the photographs captured by shades by 43 for my engagement ceremony. Besides their utmost devotion to the work, the craft and skill involved in their photography is extremely remarkable. The unconventional angles and appropriate use of 'shades' made each and every capture very unique and special. Thank you shades by 43 for making my day a memorable one.

Choosing Shades by 43 was one of the best decisions I made for my big day. The crew is amazing, they make you so much comfortable and never asks for awkward poses. The dealings were also cool, never had to worry about when will I get my photos or album, they give you those ASAP. The photos are so elegant that months after my marriage I feel proud, looking at my photos, for having chosen Shades by 43 for my Engagement, Wedding Eve and Wedding. You guys are the best, and thank you so much for making me look beautiful and elegant, just like I wanted! Best wishes!!
