There is really not much that we can say about this stellar group of photographers that hasn't been said in the other reviews. From the first conversation with Khalid till this day, it has been a thoroughly smooth experience. They (Khalid, Adil, and team) captured exactly what our wedding was all about without making us ever feel awkward, obstructed, or instructed. We wanted our wedding to be just pure simple fun and lots of love - and the pics that Bombay Brigade delivered to us (pretty much always on time too!) captured all of that perfectly. Our family waving their hands in the air, little kiddos dancing, the both of us sharing a private funny moment in the midst of the madness - it was such tiny, inconspicuous moments that they caught beautifully on film that would have otherwise gotten lost forever - and we are grateful for that! The deliverables included pictures, a cinematic short video, and a long video chronicling the events. The photos were AMAZING. : They made us laugh, cry, and relive those two fun days! The best bit - was that Ren, who was very resistant to the idea of having a wedding photographer because she gets super conscious and weirded out when a camera is pointed at her, said that she loved how non-obtrusive and invisible, yet supportive, the guys were. The short video was excellent - welling us (and any friend or family of ours that watched it) up each time we watch and re-watch it. The longer video was a great record of the events too. We thought that it could do with some music edits when we got it, and Khalid was happy to accommodate that request. Utimately, we realized that getting the music right, according to our needs, for every moment throughout a 40-min video is not an easy task, and requires far too much telepathy, which would be hard to get even despite the great equation we built over the two days. All in all - these guys were such lovely humans who put us completely at ease during our big day and thankfully, managed to capture our insider jokes! We hope they had a blast too - even though they were working while we partied!

Mahesh had become a good friend after the shoot. He is not into capturing expressions and poses but more into capturing emotions which makes him stand out. It's always our request over any of his hurdles,in our outdoor shoot it was raining off and on which was good for us but not at all for a photographer. He even risked his expensive equipment to get the right shots. The challenge he took up worked out well and the pictures look so cinematic and WoW. Best part is that Mahesh wouldn't take too much time in giving you the pictures which I took to post this review :P. Thanks Mahesh for making us look so fabulous in each pic that you clicked.

We got married in February this year and had been searching for a photographer for almost 9 months prior to the wedding. I had spoken to and met countless photographers but none seemed right. And then I stumbled upon - The Bombay Brigade! I was already bowled over by their profile on Wedmegood but just meeting Mahesh once was enough to seal the deal. A week before the wedding I ended up fracturing my ankle and being a bride your anxiety levels are already sky high but being a bride with a plastered leg was like the worst thing ever. But Mahesh and his team were so amazing! They were like a bunch of friends covering our wedding and taking care of me at the same time. They were so punctual, accommodating, patient and helpful, silently doing their job without interfering with the ongoing ceremonies or making their presence felt. They were always the first ones to reach the venue and last ones to leave (I have seen so many wedding teams that are so rigid about timings that they don’t even care about missing important shots in case it gets late which is usually the case with Indian weddings). They made sure that I was always happy, comfortable and that I don’t strain my ankle during the ceremonies. They never made us pose for pictures or made me get up (since I couldn’t stand at all) but despite all of this the pictures came out MAGICAL!! It is their sheer talent and passion that they made even a bride on a wheelchair look so great in the pictures All my friends are married and I have seen many wedding teams but no body as proactive as these guys. The emotions they’ve managed to capture through their lens, it’s like I can relive my entire wedding every time I look at the pictures and the cinematic movie (love the songs they’ve put in the movie, not like your generic wedding movies). My friends and family, everybody was so impressed that they’ve become our go to photographers for all the weddings in the family henceforth. Mahesh, Aadil, Khalid, it was so great working with you all – no attitude, no glitch. You guys are class apart and truly made our wedding the most beautiful experience for us. Cant thank you guys enough!

A wedding is the biggest event we ever plan and after that hustle all we are left with are memories in the form of pictures for the rest of our lives. Hence finding a ‘PERFECT’ photographer is the biggest and most important task. We spent a lot of time trying to find something that suited our plan and I am so glad we came across The Bombay Brigade and team. They were absolutely fantastic. They were extremely punctual (which is so important considering Mumbai traffic and the fact that we never have enough time on our wedding day). They were with us for all of our wedding ceremonies and every day they went that extra mile of coming in early and staying back after all the guests had left just to give us the perfect shots! They captured every emotion of an Indian wedding with so much grace that we even love the pictures where we are crying. They were like having a gang of friends around and every time I looked around and smiled, they were there to capture it just perfectly! They are extremely understanding of the chaotic situations that come along the wedding day to an extent that we had a wrong date booked with them for my mehendi but when I called them, they turned up in less than 45 mins! The Bombay Brigade genuinely stands true to their name, they are so enthusiastic and passionate about their work, just like the city! I wouldn’t have had my pictures any other way!

So a wedding is always a scary thing. Everybody knows that. There are so many things happening, and most of them wrong. To top that, we were going to hold a Catholic+Hindu wedding, which made us nervous already. And one of the scariest things in a wedding is the photographer. "Madam thoda left mein khade raho." "Sir please put your hand on madam." You know, the regular 'candid' moments. Then you never know how the photos will turn out, and by the time they do it's too late to do anything about it. Unless you want to marry again. After choosing to wed each other, selecting the Bombay Brigade to cover the wedding was the second really, really good decision. The moment we met Mahesh, the top dog, we knew it wasn't going to be a routine client-vendor dynamic. Mahesh was friendly, genuine, and passionate about his work, and he wanted to understand the ins and outs of the wedding clearly so that everybody is on the same page. Before the wedding, he did his homework and understood the venues well. Thankfully, the whole team was like that. During the wedding, every interaction with the team felt like a bunch of good friends helping out. They were patient, accommodating, and they did not make their presence a burden. I've seen many, many weddings where the photographers run the show, to the extent that a lot of the audience gets to see them more than the bride and groom themselves. These guys were not like that at all. Like a fly on the wall equipped with a really good camera and good photography sense, the Bombay Brigade covered our wedding smoothly and without interruption. Their candid and traditional photos came out really well(although my first love was the candid photos of course), and the trailer video and the final film was also top-notch with their attention to detail. Even the music was not some generic wedding song - Mahesh and team try to understand what your preferences are and do their best to give you that. And in our case, they thoroughly succeeded. I also have to add that there were moments after the wedding when it was about selecting the photos or checking the wedding film, that me and my wife were not able to get back to him quickly. In fact, we were tardy about it. Thankfully, Mahesh has been very patient and understanding about all of that and did not at any point get turned off. (Although, I highly recommend that you don't do that yourself. Respect his and his team's time too :p ) I highly, highly recommend them. If not for yourself, then for your friends and family. In a wedding, you need as many good people around you as you can. These guys are exactly that.

I was really struggling to find the "right" photographer to capture our wedding but just one phone call with Mahesh and I knew he will be the right choice! He was able to clear all my confusions around candid/traditional photography and traditional/cinematographic videos and helped me decide the right mix of photographers/cinematographers for us to cover a 3-day wedding. We were very impressed with the whole team's creativity, integrity, and patience during the course of the 3 days and equally impressed with the pictures and the videos later too. They were a delight to work with and were very accommodative. We never ever had to worry about posing for a photo or pausing a ritual - they were ever ready to take those stunning candid shots without us even realizing it! (As a camera conscious person and a bride, I can tell you that is such a skill to have!) The pictures turned out to be beautiful and we were absolutely awe-struck with the candid shots and the cinematic videos and loved sharing it with our family and friends. I wish the whole team tremendous amounts of success in the future - these hard working bunch of creative chaps absolutely deserve it!

If you are looking for a hardworking, high quality, eye-for-detail candid photographer, then look no further. Mahesh covered my wedding this November 23rd in Chandigarh. All I was looking for was a photographer who has an eye to capture the special moments of my wedding without those people posing for the same ! Mahesh did just that, almost never asking to pose or stop or repeat for that 'candid' shot ! The work is spectacular alongwith some good editing. His style of working is almost documentary style of photography. His attitude extremely sincere and dedicated. Thank you Mahesh ! It was a pleasure having you.

Mine was a hush hush wedding. Everything done in a month's time, leaving me no time to think and plan things. I had to jump straight to the execution mode. And my biggest worry was the photographs!!! After all it's a life event and I was stressed about getting it captured the right way...that's when BOMBAY BRIGADE came to my rescue. I contacted Mahesh who very kindly agreed to my request on a really short notice. Mahesh covered 3 event's haldi, wedding and reception. He ensured that all the moments were captured and captured them most beautifully. My friend's and family absolutely loved the pictures. When I look back at them I know I trusted the right person to have captured the most beautiful day of life. Many Thanks to Mahesh and Bombay Brigade..I wish them all the luck!

Where do I even start! After a scintillating pre-wedding shoot, we were desperate to have Mahesh cover the entire wedding! Despite his busy schedule, he finally agreed to come. And we can't be more thankful! The guy is an absolute gem. He would go to any length to ensure you get the best shots. Whether it was about missing the meals to cover make up sessions or the pre-dawn Tamil wedding rituals, he was there capturing our finest emotions. The way he so patiently deals with his clients makes the entire shoot so comfortable and memorable. It's just so easy to open up to him about your requirements and he is extremely flexible. Above all, his work is a reflection of his dedication and passion! We are forever indebted, Mahesh! Thank you is not enough!
