Some kind words and client testimonials that we are proud to share from couples who have turned into lifelong friends
Ajit & Saniya
"From the very beginning of the wedding planning process, finding the right photographer to capture our wedding was one of the most important things for us. We had very specific ideas and we were over the moon when we met Deepa and Dipesh. Their professionalism was excellent, and the work was amazing. It had the clean, pure and beautiful style that we wanted. As a massive bonus, they were also lovely people and we knew that working with them would be extremely easy.
Our ideas matched the style of photographer that Deepa and Dipesh wanted to impart on our photo shoots. As time went on, it was clear that our thoughts matched and importantly, we were able to put as many of our ideas through as possible. It was evident that Deepa and Dipesh wanted our pictures to come out the way we wanted and not solely what they wanted us to look like.
Through the wedding week, having Deepa and Dipesh around our families was a pleasure. They understood how to accurately capture the wedding festivities and the work, effort and fun that went into each function. For us, it didn’t feel like having photographers around, it felt like having our friends around, which is a testament to how easy Deepa and Dipesh are to work with.
Receiving our pictures and viewing them for the first time after the wedding was incredible. Every picture told a story and captured our wedding in the best way. We spent days going through all of the pictures again and again, not because it took us days, but because we were able to relive our wedding through each image.
6 months after the wedding, we find ourselves helping other friends and family members plan their weddings. For us, helping them pick Deepa and Dipesh as the photographer is the easiest part.
We are extremely happy with the fact that we still keep in touch with Deepa and Dipesh. Any functions that we have in the future we know will be captured by them. "

"Having Deepa and Dipesh part of our big day was honestly one of the highlights of our entire wedding! The process of choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important parts of wedding planning. From the moment we booked Deepa for our wedding, she put as totally at ease, responding to all our queries in a timely manner and with her extensive experience and expertise in photographing Asian weddings, provided us with valuable advice and help with our wedding planning - which was much appreciated!
We first met Deepa at our pre-wedding shoot and she immediately made us feel natural and relaxed in front of the camera. On the day of our wedding, Deepa and Dipesh made an effort to arrive at the venue early and familiarise themselves with the venue. They were friendly with all our guests and worked well with our other wedding suppliers. I remember Deepa coming to see me in the Bridal room as I was getting ready, and I remember her calm nature and excitement for the day ahead really reassured me that everything was going well! Both Deepa and Dipesh were incredibly efficient and thorough to make sure photos were captured at each stage of the day. It was a lovely surprise to receive a few teaser photos from Deepa soon after our wedding. We absolutely loved her creativity with our portraits and also her ability to capture so much vibrancy, colour, laughter and fun throughout our day.
We are extremely happy with the high quality photos and professional album Deepa produced for us. All beautiful wonderful memories that we will cherish forever!
We started off as clients but the whole experience working with Deepa and Dipesh we believe has left us as lifelong friends, and for that we are super grateful! Thank you Deepa and Dipesh!"
Hiral & Pritesh
"When choosing a photographer for such a big life event like a wedding it’s important to have a photographer who understands you as a couple and makes you feel comfortable when taking the photos and Deepa and her partner Dipesh did exactly that!
Prior to booking Deepa, she took the time out to speak to us, get to know us and understand what it was that we were looking for in terms of our ideas of how we wanted our day to be captured. As part of our package we also had an engagement photoshooot with them. This was great to have as we got to know each other a lot better and they helped us feel more comfortable in front of the camera.
On the wedding day Deepa and Dipesh came ahead of time to make themselves familiar with the grounds and the venue as well as capturing certain shots before all of the guests arrived. They allowed for enough time to do both portrait and couple shots throughout the day and were also flexible with time and stayed for an extra couple of hours to capture more of our reception. With each photograph taken, Deepa and Dipesh were very creative with their shots, using the surroundings to give us unique shots and paid attention to the finest details.
We received the photos earlier than expected which was a nice surprise, and they did not disappoint! Deepa and Dipesh captured each moment perfectly as the day unfolded - from the jaan arrival, us seeing each other for the first time, our first dance and the banter during the speeches. We can not recommend Deepa Shukle Photography enough. Deepa and Dipesh really compliment each other as photographers and together they have captured some phenomenal and beautiful memories for us that we will cherish forever and share with our family and friends over the years to come ."
Sachin & Kejal
"Looking back on our wedding, Sachin & I both find ourselves far too lucky to have found Deepa & Dipesh for our engagement and wedding photography. Deepa was by far the easiest supplier to work with, we received timely communication throughout all of our planning, and always found that she was a phone call or email away for any question or concern we had. Deepa is a true professional and a well known photographer in the industry, all of our other suppliers knew her name and always had something positive to say about her work and personality. We were never let down!
Deepa and Dipesh both took the time to familiarise themselves with our venue as well as our friends and families and did an outstanding job at organising 160 people for a group photo - a huge thank you! They both gave Sachin and I the opportunity to create the "first look" photo before our reception and it is a moment I will never forget. Nothing was ever too much and they both took all (on and off track!) timings in their stride, so much so they even stayed back later than we had originally booked them for. Deepa & Dipesh are a pair you want on your wedding day; a pair who genuinely want you to have the best day of your life.
We are both incredibly grateful and moved by the beautiful photo's that Deepa and Dipesh have sent us, they have captured all of the details from the venue, surrounding grounds to all of the intimate moments of our ceremony. Deepa sent us a few teasers pretty much within 48 hours of our wedding which was such a wonderful surprise, we were in awe and felt all of the emotions flooding back when we saw the full set of photo's.
Deepa & Dipesh, you have given us memories to last us a life time, we both wish you every success and cannot wait to see you later on in the year and many more weddings after that!"
Nishma & Kashyap
"I genuinely don’t even know where to begin - Deepa and Dipesh were honestly amazing!
They captured so many natural moments and it’s unbelievable how they managed to get so many fantastic shots of our special day. The photos tell the story of our day from start to finish and we couldn’t have wished for better photographers. Deepa and Dipesh were unreal from start to finish, so professional and fun throughout the day.
Thank you so much for the photos, they are outstanding!"
Kuljit & Peter
"We are so pleased with our wedding photographs! We wanted high quality natural looking photographs and this is exactly what Deepa produced. Both Deepa and Dipesh were a delight to have at the wedding, they mingled well with the guests and really got the best out of people. They were professional throughout the whole process and so easy to communicate with. They also listened to our ideas and really helped to capture the day in a way that represented us. Timings for photo edits were upheld, so we were knew exactly when we would receive our photographs.
Thank you so much!"
Seetal & Jason
"I first heard about Deepa at my friends brothers wedding and decided to give her a call. From the very first phone call I felt like I was talking to a friend. I must have called her plenty of times and she always had time for me, no matter where she was!
Jason and I finally met Deepa for our pre-wedding shoot and she made us feel at ease. We received the photos in a matter of days and absolutely loved them. I knew I had made the right decision in choosing her as my wedding photographer.
On our wedding day Deepa and Dipesh just blended in and we didn't even notice them there. Deepa sent us a few a teasers a few days later, which made me impatient to see the rest. A couple of months later we received a package and inside was a beautiful box with a USB and a card. The pictures were amazing, they had captured everyone's emotions and all the shots were so natural. This is what we loved as it made us laugh and cry whilst looking at them all. Deepa and Dipesh you blew us away and I want to do it all over again! I love every reaction of Jason you got and its exactly what I wanted. I would definitely recommend you guys. See you later in the year at my friends wedding."
