    Supposing we had our wedding day all over again, the wedding photographer would undeniably be Neeta. Now, that says how much we loved Neeta’s work.

    Neeta is immensely talented. We have had nothing but wonderful compliments on our wedding pictures. If it weren't for time schedules we would have loved to take more. The photos do not look fake or cliché. Instead, they are candid, funny, filmy and totally fantastic.

    She clicked lovely images that capture the beauty of our wedding venue, the excitement and romance of the wedding day. Neeta’s patience, professionalism, skill, and artistic eye were all deeply appreciated. Everyone who has seen the wedding photos loves the photos. Her photography is highly recommended and we would certainly hire her again.

    Annapurna & Lenin, Tamarind Tree, Bangalore

    There are some decisions that are a challenge to make, not due to lack of options, sometimes perhaps due to so many options. In this age of the modern wedding era, where there is a beautiful amalgamation of religions, friends, artists, ideas, love and light all blending perfectly and everyone want to have their perfect fairy-tale wedding, there are too many options to choose from.

    Like any bride-to-be I did use a lot of my internet bandwidth to search for the ONE. The photographer who will capture it all! So when you search for the best wedding photographers in Bangalore, of course Neeta’s name popped up and it’s needless to say that she has a very reputed name and her work speaks for itself.

    So in some anticipation and excitement I contacted her (she was the first I contacted in a long list that came later) and she very graciously explained her work, terms and charges. To keep our options open we contacted a huge number of photographers, but something about Neeta (maybe I always wanted her!) and the way she responded “I am looking forward to shoot your wedding” always kept us going back to shortlisting her and we finally asked her and she was free. There goes the photographer and couple marriage made in heaven!

    And boy did we congratulate ourselves for taking this decision. From the start of the communication, Neeta Shankar and Varun were professional, courteous, extremely friendly and collaborative. It was a hassle free and exciting experience from the get go! They gave us tips and advice to make sure we get the best of the deal.

    It is very important to mention that she has a great team who are the sweetest people. They are always in smiles and they NEVER get tired of shooting! I mean NEVER!!!! Click click smile smile. That’s the level of commitment and passion they have.

    There were times we did not even feel their presence as they are so candid and unobtrusive and by the second day of the shoot the team had gotten so familiar, we joked with them and laughed with them and it was as though we were being shot by friends.

    Coming to the actual photos, are they treasures that we will see over and over again for the rest of our lives? Absolutely! The bridal portraits are stunning and everything I dreamt came true, but even more special are the moments that are captured. A story that is written through their lens, Moments of joy and love. They have captured our romance, the lightness and joy of family and friends and there are many pictures with people (and a dog) that are closest to our hearts which are an immeasurable amount of treasure to us!

    If you want a lifetime memory and souvenir in the prettiest and the most beautiful way possible and in the process if you want to make friends with two extremely nice people go for Neeta Shankar Photography! It’s easy to decide in a heartbeat.

    Neeta has the gift for taking ordinary situations and giving them the flair of a magician. We have only praise for the way that she handled every level of the shoot of our wedding. Her pictures have captured every emotion in its true sense and have given us the happiness of looking at them again & again. Neeta is a talented photographer with a fantastic eye for detail. We would happily recommend Neeta’s awesome photography work to everyone.

    Neethu & Praveen, Ritz Carlton, Bangalore

    You and your team are undeniably one of best things that happened on our special day! Much much love!! If there is an another term for patience/dedication, I would call it "Neeta Shankar”!! Hats off! The pictures were absolutely breathtaking and very beautiful. You really captured our moments and our hearts too. Man! We cannot thank you enough!!

    Dear Neeta, I am lucky. Life has been kind to me. But I believe it was more than luck, an intergalactic series of events, a cyclone of butterfly effects that led to your photography being THE ONE at our wedding !!!

    I write, but I cannot find words to describe the sheer perspective with which you have captured every moment, every stolen glance, the plethora of emotion that was our big, fat, loooooooong, noisy ( boggled your brains during Sangeet I remember) Indian wedding!!! The vibrant hues, the riot of colors against the light, the delicate soft shadows like a perfectly painted canvas are something we could have never imagined!!! We just keep looking at the pictures over and over again!! We started out as professional acquaintances but our little talks and trips in traffic (:P) during the wedding has made you like a sister to me ( I'll still pay u !!! LOL). On a more serious note, thank you, thank you Neeta from the bottom of our hearts!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!!

    And keep that toothy smile behind that lens forever!!! It has a calming effect on brides!!! If Neeta is smiling, All is well!!! I am glad and indebted that you were there to capture my transition from a world of study, medicine, fiction and fairytales to responsibility, sindhoor and sasural!!! Love u Neeta!!! And a big thank you to Varun as well!!!

    Pranitha & Karthik, RSI Club, Bangalore

    Dear Neeta,

    We know you've heard this a million times. But you are truly AMAZING and hands down one of the best wedding photographers we've ever come across! It's been over a year, but till date, the pictures you captured at our wedding make us smile and take us right back to that happy state.

    Not only did you capture every essence of what a wedding should really be about, we were so impressed with your professionalism and creativity. There is no denying how talented you are! We feel so lucky and thank you again for agreeing to shoot our wedding at such short notice and giving us the most beautifully captured memories for a lifetime. We wish you all the success!! <3

    Neeta is a versatile photographer one can greatly vouch for! With her beaming smile behind the camera captures your best smiles!!! Her work speaks volumes about innovative captures and brings to you the result that undoubtedly exceeds your expectations.

    It was extremely amazing to work with her as she comes to you with optimum dedication and gives her best shot in every click. Once you see the final pictures you'll know it's worth every click as her work is simply out of the world.

    Thank you, Neeta for capturing our wedding in such a splendid way and for carving our memories so beautifully as your work will be always treasured for a life time!

    Divya & John, Lalbagh, Bangalore

    We can't thank you enough for your awesome photos, they are so overwhelmingly beautiful that they evoke as much feeling as the moments captured. We wanted a photo shoot that would bring back the sophisticated vintage essence of our wedding day while reflecting us and our bond. Your photography skills have captured all our moments of tenderness and warmth in a way that expresses classy English elegance with a touch of quaint old world charm, just EXACTLY what we wanted. Neeta, hats off to you for picking up on our tastes quickly & building on them in your style.

    Your balance of passion and professionalism definitely sets you apart from the million other photographers.Your passion shined through when kept pushing us for that "one more shot" despite the lack of time, so much so that you kept clicking away untiringly way beyond our scheduled time, all through our walk back to the car in the scorching sun, but your professionalism was evident when you remained calm and in control at all times.

    We couldn't be happier with the hundreds of photos, and more so the hundreds of memories that we will cherish for a lifetime.We got to relive our dream and now we have your fantastic photos to remember them by.

    More than all this, it is your friendly attitude and down-to-earth sensibilities that have made a hypercritical person as me your fan. If the intent & purpose of photography is to render in visual terms feelings & experiences that often elude the ability to describe in words, then Neeta Shankar, you have done it; as definitely my words cannot do enough justice to your capabilities.

    In addition to photos, you guys were so nice & such a wonderful people!!! Remain same!!!

    Mallika & Pawan, Srigandha Palace, Bangalore

    You were one of best choices we made when planning Our Wedding Day!!

    It is impossible to overstate how happy and thankful we are about your amazing wedding photography. To us, the day itself felt perfect, but to have all of those special moments captured in your beautiful photographs makes us feel exceptionally privileged. The first time I saw them I was awestruck how beautiful they were and realized that these are the type of shots I’d love to look at all my life when reminiscing our Big Day.

    Life is all about few special moments and to capture every moment which last for decades is a big job. And we really didn’t want the cliched “stand and pose” pictures for our wedding, so getting a candid photographer along with a traditional one was a must!!

    You captured far more than we could have imagined possible, all those bits that we missed on the day but got to find out about at our first look through the shots - it was great to relive all the special moments that we can now share, keep and treasure! We really can't find the words to express our enormous gratitude for the amazing job you've done. It takes an incredible eye to capture all of the fleeting glances and moments that make up such an emotional day, but you clearly have those skills in abundance.

    You have a fantastic eye for detail and have perfectly captured the magic of our day in such an artistic way for us to look back on in the years to come. Your passion, dedication, way of connecting with people and most important your style is just so natural and timeless !!

    Above all, you are a wonderful person, very friendly who builds up a rapport in minutes. The way of bonding along was so good that we all thought you were one among us and not just a photographer around!! Your patience, smile and relaxed way of work are just so pleasing and outstanding !! I wish you loads of good luck, success and happiness Neeta. It was an honour to work with you! 🙂 ♥

    Paddy & Sanjay, Rajasthan

    Thank you so much for being our wedding photographer. The images you have captured of our special day are absolutely priceless. I was able to re-live those moments again. I was in tears the whole time while seeing the photos! We can't thank you enough for providing such beautiful memories. I should thank my brother for choosing you. He gave us something which we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

    NEETA!! I'm speechless after seeing the wedding snaps and we've got something that we'd like to share with you…

    I've always been an admirer of your work (a big Fan, actually!) for a long while now and had always wished that I could have my 'dream' wedding too. 🙂 When it was my time to tie the knot with my Prince 'so very charming', I couldn't stop thinking about Candid Photography and only one name was stuck in my head - "Neeta Shankar Photograhy”. I was wondering if you would shoot, like, regular weddings.. Looking at all the pics on your page, it looked so lavish..!! Finally, we made that call.. n Hurray 🙂 🙂 You were available on our day!!

    Our wedding photos look so extravagant! The second we saw the first few shots...we were mesmerized!! The photos look right out of a Fairytale wedding.. An IYENGAR FAIRYTALE WEDDING to be precise 😉 😉 and you've managed to capture our dearest ones at their laughing best and their rare expressions.. I know now.. it's all Neeta magic.. You're like the MIDAS of Candid Photography.. "The Girl with the GOLDEN TOUCH” 🙂 🙂

    What's more admirable about you (apart from the talent ), is your professionalism and 'down-to-earth' attitude. It was like having a friend at our wedding. We were very comfortable during the photoshoot..[ the pics are the proof for that 😉 ] and you were so sweet and patient enough to click us through all that 'hurry-burry'...capturing our finest moments.. and processing them so beautifully!!! We really love you and the photos!! 🙂 🙂 A special thanks to your dear one, Varun, for capturing some fun moments too 🙂

    Did I say earlier that I was Speechless..? 🙂 :).. We can't stop gushing Neeta!!! GREAT JOB!! No wait.. AWESOME JOB!! I'm looking at the Photos and I'm falling in love all over again... It's like a Humongous SUGAR RUSH!! 🙂 🙂 Neeta, Thank you for making the most Wonderful day of our Lives SO memorable!!! These photos are to be Treasured Forever 🙂

    Thank you so much for the most wonderful & amazing photographs. It was really worth the wait. We are absolutely delighted with them! You captured every moment of our wedding perfectly with such a bright mixture of images. The pictures will be a fabulous record of what was clearly a very special day for us. Hiring your services for our wedding was the best decision we made..!! The hardest part was selecting our favorites as everything exceeded our expectations. We received so many compliments!

    We would like to thank you and Varun for total professionalism depicted throughout the wedding ceremony and reception. You were on time and well prepared. Thank you for organizing a separate couple shoot for us as you were unable to capture all the moments on the wedding day. We would definitely recommend your services to anyone who is looking for a talented, professional photographer who is fun to work with and has the ability to put you at ease during one’s anxious & tense wedding moments.

We have gotten some unbelievable comments from friends and family; they say we look like we are in a movie, out of a magazine etc. I am so happy that we chose you as our wedding photographer.

    Ever since we stumbled across your website, we have felt that you are the one we should trust upon for our engagement and wedding because of your unique ability to make everything look special. The photographs really do speak for themselves, but not only are they absolutely beautiful, but they also reflect the mood of the day quite perfectly.

    The photography aside, we thoroughly enjoyed working with you. We can’t thank you enough for your efforts during the wedding. Thank you so much for being part of the day and capturing it so perfectly. We will be highly recommending you to all our friends!!!

    Thank you Neeta for all the magical pictures! We Indians spend huge money in our weddings on many things, but I think the best investment is the now the "Candid Photos". It captures special moments we have lived but can not be expressed. It's these moments we want to relive all our life especially when we grow old. Neeta, you capture these moments better than we have lived it!!!

    I think you are one of the best wedding photographers in India. I didn't have you at my wedding, but I am so so glad I found you for my sister's. Your talent is unbeatable and your professionalism is impeccable. Words fall short to express how happy we all are with your clicks. Continue to Rock...More power to you my girl....xoxo

    Teju and Ashwin, Bunts Sangha, Bangalore

    Dear Neeta & Varun, Finally, we went through all the pictures and we are completely overwhelmed!! 🙂 When I was looking for someone to photograph our wedding, a couple of my friends has suggested Neeta. I loved her pictures and immediately contacted her to book her for our wedding. I had never met nor spoken to Neeta before the Mehendi shoot, our conversations were limited to only emails. Ashwin and I are not really interested in posing for pictures and since she is an expert at Candid Wedding Photography we felt we had made the right choice.

    Both Neeta & Varun showed up at my place in time for the shoot in spite of the crazy traffic and the long distance commute to capture the wonderful moments! Though I told Neeta that I was not interested in pictures of me getting ready on the wedding day, she was at the venue early in the morning even before I started. And I must thank her for that, cause those shots are truly priceless!!

    Neeta, you are sweet, adorable, professional and extremely talented! How you carry around that 10kg camera backpack with a smile on your face, clicking non stop without pausing for a break truly baffles me!

    We had to wait for our pictures but like you assured us, you have truly overcompensated and delivered beyond our expectations!! The moments, that you so beautifully captured, will be treasured forever by us and our families! It was wonderful to get to know the both of you and hope that in future we have the opportunity to work with you again 🙂 Until then will continue to ogle at all your beautiful photographs!! Lots of love and best wishes to both of you!!

    When we decided to tie the knot, me being an amateur photographer, took up zeroing on the event photographer as one of my responsibility. Little did I know then how taxing it would be. I had the impression that I would hit 500px/Flickr, go through a bunch of portfolios and bam! I will be done! I went through a lot of portfolios but nothing seemed to fit the bill. That was until I stumbled upon Neeta's Facebook page. The photos were stunning and the couple shoots were adorable. My fiancé loved them too and all that was left was to check Neeta's availability. Fortunately, she was available and she flew down to God's own country for the wedding.

    Working with her was a breeze. She reached the day before the event and scouted for locations so the next day she was all set to execute that vision. On the day of the wedding, she came equipped with them telephoto lenses and was able to snap some delightful candid shots all around the hall. After the ceremony, we had quite some fun getting the location shoots done. She didn't ask us to do those cheesy poses and let us be ourselves in front of the camera which was a relief and we were more comfortable going into the shoots.

    The photos came out stunning! I had an expectation going into it (which was pretty high by itself) based on her portfolio, but what we received was beyond that. It’s been months since and we still get compliments! We have been told that inadvertently we made the lives of a bunch of our friends, who are going to get married, easier as they have checked the photographer off their to-do list.

    Neeta, We are really happy that we had you to summarize our wedding in pictures. Every time we look at the photos, we relive all the emotions that we felt that day!

    You really were the best we could ask for, helping us choose the right colors for our clothes and bridal make up so that we looked good right through all the events at our wedding. We cannot think of anyone else who could have been so kind, patient and well coordinated. You made memories of our wedding absolutely magical. Thank you!
