Testimonials for Gayatri Nair | Weddings by Gayatri

Gayatri Nair is a Contemporary Traveling Wedding Photographer who works out of Chennai but has shot weddings in Singapore, Jaipur, Bangalore, Mumbai, Madras, Delhi, Cochin and more. 

These folks had nice things to say about me... 

Gayatri was a phenomenal candid photographer to work with. After weeks of online research, we chanced upon her website through Shaadisaga and instantly loved her beautifully captured photos. She is a reliable, no-frills, down-to-earth person who was extremely easy to be around and went the extra mile to make sure she got the best shots at our weddings. Even at our last event, the wedding reception, she stayed till the very end to make sure we were able to get all the photos that we wanted with our guests before everyone left. For a couple that doesn’t particularly enjoy posed photos together, she made us feel incredibly comfortable and it felt like we were hanging out with a friend rather than a hired professional during our photo shoots. In addition, she took the initiative to bring along her polaroid camera and offered us the option of polaroid photos that we really loved having at the end of the wedding. Unsurprisingly, all of our family members and friends also loved the photos she took and we are so happy to have such wonderful memories in photo form to cherish forever.

Suchithra and I would like to express our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for your coverage of our wedding. We think your role in the wedding made the event even more memorable and special thanks to all the lovely memories we get to relive through your creativity.

We were particular about having you at our wedding right from the start, once we had seen your work online. After having interacted through phone and email ahead of the wedding, we were both pleasantly surprised and quite happy when you joined our families on the overnight train ride to the venue. Your ability to jive well with a large group of new faces at once spoke to your involvement and commitment to providing an up-close and personal coverage of our special day.

The reason we were attracted to your work is your unique story-telling style that captures the uniqueness of the setting and event. After seeing the finished product, we also noticed your uncanny ability to bring out the unique personality of each individual through your pictures. We also love your ability to capture candid moments while keeping firm focus of the progression of the events. In fact, we were all happy that as the single photographer at our wedding, you managed to capture all the key moments and nothing was ever left out.

Lastly, your work ethic in following up quickly with the post-production work and getting us a large collection of finished images gave us the opportunity to relish them even as the celebrations are still fresh in our memories.

Suchithra and I would like you to know on behalf our families that we all recognize your hard work, patience, flexibility, excellence and commitment to delivering a top-tier finished product. Thank you once again and all the best for your new projects!

I was thrilled when Gayatri agreed to photograph our wedding ceremonies. The photographs were special because what Gayatri captured were more than just photographs - she captured the myriad emotions that I went through when I transformed from Sritha - the girl to Sritha - the bride. She even managed to capture my five emotionally-charged aunts plus mom in one picture, which according to me is a conquest in itself. She blended into my wedding theme of fun-laughter-frolic and helped co-create the fun moments with my family. I had her with me all the way from getting ready to almost not missing the muhurat time to shooing away the “amateur” photographers. She captured my moments as intimate and personal as I wanted it to be. Thank you Gayatri!

I never knew that a photo shoot could be carved out of just being yourself with your loved ones. That’s what Gayatri did, and I can proudly say that my wedding pictures were some of my best pictures ever. Thanks for letting me be!

Each time I look at my wedding pictures, it brings a smile to my face!

Thank you Gayatri for capturing the most memorable moments from our special day. And to add to that, your keen eye and attention to detail for the right mix of vibrancy, focus, angle, editing, have made all pictures so ‘frame worthy’…it inspires us to cover all the empty walls of our house!!

We are truly glad to have such a beautiful sum up of our wedding.

Looking at Gayatri’s portfolio, we really admired her attention to details and her photo editing techniques. Her promptness in communication was great right from day 1 and we knew we could trust her. Even though we were abroad, she made sure we had a video chat and heard our ideas on how we wanted our outdoor photo shoot.

All throughout the wedding, she worked with so much of enthusiasm and stayed till the end with a smile. She took all efforts to put my not-so photo friendly husband at ease. The wedding moments she captured for us speak volumes and we will definitely cherish them for a lifetime.

She was also very prompt in sharing the processed pictures. In spite of her busy schedule, we really appreciate the time she takes for each of her clients and gives them individual attention. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her and wish her all the very best.

There was one thing we were very keen to get right in our wedding. Not really the trousseau or the decor, but photography that would capture moments as is. And we were thoroughly happy we found Gayatri. It was an enjoyable experience working with her - be it pre-wedding briefings, specific requests at the wedding or capturing candid moments. The photos turned out beautiful, the album admirable and we were very comfortable working & communicating with Gayatri. Gayatri and her team mate Adithya were able to create a cherished memory for us. We have excitedly shared their names with our friends and will call upon Gayatri if there is another opportunity!

We got married last august and we used Gayatri for our big day... Gayatri was ex-colleague of mine (from the her days in banking) and to be honest i did not really now what to expect... When we saw the end result we were blown away and most definitely far exceeded our expectations.. She has a real passion photography and this comes out in her work... She goes about her work in a relaxed but focused way without causing a fuss or putting any additional pressure on the bride / groom.. She appreciated that this was an important day for us and was on the on ball through out capturing the real essence of the day with some great photos.. Her album was very well put together and i loved the website she created so we could quickly share the photos with our guest... All in all a very satisfied customer!

When Gayatri does your wedding photography it is like trusting your friend of many years to help you keep sanity amidst all the confusion. Gayatri helped me find my make up artist and the traditional photographer for the wedding and more than happy to help with all the behind the scene process in multiple ways. This apart Gayatri makes you feel so comfortable during the entire craziness...

Gayatri creates magic with her camera and every time we see our album we are amazed at how nostalgic we feel and how it takes us back to that time..Thanks Gayatri FOR EVERYTHING :)

We cannot thank you enough for the wedding photos. They are amazing! It is like re-living the day when we watch the photos and we have been receiving great compliments for the album from all our friends and family.

You were very friendly and easy to work with and definitely brought out the best in us during our photo sessions.

All the very best and we’ll be highly recommending you to all our friends/family, so hopefully we will see you again :)

Thank you for these photographs. It’s great to have visual evidence of how happy we were during those two busy days. I’ve been looking at these constantly.

Besides your great eye, I appreciated your unflagging energy and flexibility, and patience with the kids who monopolized you. Many of our guests also commented on your friendliness - that’s a great asset!

Gayatri did a wonderful job capturing the events of my Valaikaappu & Seemantham this past August. She was referred to us by family and I had an idea of the work she is capable of.... it was great working with her first hand as well. She spares no effort in clicking the most enjoyable candid shots (not just your standard posey photo-coverage fare) and it was a joy going through the album after. We’re always pulled in many directions, busy with procedures or engrossed in conversation(!) during family functions - this is a good way to relive the day in a natural way and take in the details. Gayatri is professional to work with and friendly at the same time. She arrived well on time with all the necessary gear, was patient and attentive throughout and indulged us covering group shots, portraits and the like in addition to her own candid shots of the events. More than happy to recommend her work! :)

Let me begin by saying I am not photogenic at all and I don’t enjoy being photographed. But Gayatri truly made it that much more fun and captured moments without my knowledge thus the end result was absolutely beautiful and natural. Thanks so much for the wonderful pictures :) I was extremely happy with them and would recommend her for sure.

I think it was the most unique experience having a candid photographer of Gayatri’s caliber help out with our wedding. Most importantly (and all relatives on both sides agree with this), she blended in smoothly and made it very easy for the wedding proceedings to go on without having anything stop for taking photos - and yet (or because of this), the pictures are as if every important moment has been captured across all the photos. Looking at the pictures is like re-living the moment as vividly as being there, but experiencing it differently each time you look at the album. Relatives on both sides have been floored, and extended relatives would like to hire her for weddings that are coming up ... I can’t recommend her enough.
