Samantha & Rohan
Wedding at The Brick House Farm - 125 S Sparta Ave, Sparta, NJ 07871
Initially, when we downsized our wedding plans to a "micro-wedding" with only immediate family one day, and a couple of select friends the next, we were on the fence about whether to hire a photographer. I could not be happier that we did and, more specifically, that we went with Ishan Fotografi. Ishan and his wife, Preeti, were incredible - they were professional and very warm. Neither my husband nor I am the most comfortable in front of the camera and they were able to put us at ease and shot a great combination of staged and candid pictures. Ishan and Preeti were flexible and generous with their time to make sure we were able to capture our most important moments. They were also quick to share the photos with us and we were absolutely thrilled with the final product.

Wedding at Conestoga House & Gardens - 1608 Marietta Ave #2450, Lancaster, PA 17603
We hired Ishan & Preeti to capture our wedding and we could not be happier. From the challenges of rescheduling multiple times due to the pandemic, through helping us plan our day, Ishan and Preeti were easy, fun, and knowledgeable to work with. Despite the rain during our wedding, they went ABOVE and BEYOND to ensure our comfort while capturing every moment of our intimate wedding. Preeti even climbed a few walls and was able to get exceptional shots. Their creativity and talent speak for themselves and are seen in each and every picture!
Ishan & Preeti were quick to respond and easy to communicate, and extremely professional. The turnaround time for all the pictures was less than 1 month, and so easy to access on their secure website!
What we liked most about our experience with Ishan & Preeti were how humble they were, and how enjoyable they made the process. They were by far our favorite to work with and this was easily the best decision we made. If you are considering booking Ishan Fotografi, I can assure you you will have no regrets. Ishan & Preeti will capture your event and you will have a great time working with them.

Wedding at The Marigold - 315 Churchill Ave, Somerset, NJ 08873 | Engagement Session at Princeton University - Princeton, NJ 08544
In our first phone call meeting with Ishan, he said "picking out your photographer is one of the most important decisions in wedding planning. You want to work with someone who can make you feel comfortable in front of the camera and bring out your genuine emotions on your special day even when you're feeling nervous and have butterflies" And that's exactly the kind of quality we found in this team.
We worked with Ishan Fotografi for three separate occasions: engagement ceremony, photoshoot, and wedding (including pre-wedding events). Our engagement ceremony was captured by one of the assistant photographers, Shan. During the photoshoot, we realized Ishan and Preeti were definitely the teams we would like to move forward with. They were calm and were always enthusiastic about trying new shots. We had originally decided on 2 hours but did not feel rushed at all even if it took us a little longer to try out a few poses. This is when we got to know both of them a little more personally and developed a relationship, which made us even more comfortable and be our genuine selves.
Our wedding was one of the ones that were affected by Covid and with so much uncertainty going on, the one vendor we did not even have to think twice about was Ishan Fotografi. There was a period when everything was so iffy, and we had decided to cancel the entire wedding and just get court married. Even then the support we received from Ishan and Preeti was immense. After a million changes and as things got a little better in our area, we decided to have a mini ceremony with 50 people. The dates ended up working with their schedule and we were thrilled. Throughout the entire weekend, they handled everything so gracefully and professionally, making sure we were comfortable every step of the way, which took a lot of the pressure off of our hands. One of the pre-wedding events was captured by Shan and even he was calm, super flexible with our family, and went above and beyond.
Picking out a photographer for your wedding is definitely important. With the Ishan Fotografi team, I never felt rushed and was made sure all of the shots I wanted were taken no matter how crazy they seemed even if it meant for Preeti to get on a chair/table to get that perfect portrait shot, Shan to repeatedly take shots of me twirling around with colored powder, and Ishan to get in the chaos of shoe-stealing to capture those candid moments. Working with them was a treat and we look forward to having them capture more special moments of our life in the future.
Uyen & Adam
Wedding at Windham Mountain - 19 Resort Dr, Windham, NY 12496
From our first introduction phone call, Ishan and Preeti were incredible to work with. We were planning our upstate New York wedding from Denver and needed vendors who were responsive and trustworthy. We were supposed to meet Ishan at my friend's wedding/at our engagement photoshoot but alas COVID happened and we weren't able to meet them until our wedding day. We also had to scale down our original package because of the much smaller event. Ishan was so flexible and helpful in every aspect throughout the replanning process - it made us so at ease. He even helped me find a hair/makeup stylist last minute!
The day of the wedding couldn't have gone any better. First, they captured some beautiful moments of us getting ready - particularly ones of me and my nieces (everyone knows how difficult it is to get good photos with kids). Then at the first look, they made us so comfortable with the photos. My husband and I have never taken pictures professionally before and we were pretty nervous because we usually look pretty awkward in posed photos - but that was not the case at all with Ishan/Preeti. My husband and I were laughing the entire time and not once felt awkward. They guided us so well, esp because they're married and were able to show us poses and made us look natural! I'm still in awe at how much joy/laughter/comfort they took in these photos - they really captured the essence of us as a couple.
Our ceremony is at the top of a mountain and requires going up the ski lift to get to the ceremony site and they were great sports about this - getting amazing photos of us going up/down the lift with the incredible views around us. The other challenge of our wedding was that all of our "wedding party" were 8 children between ages 2-13 and somehow Ishan/Preeti managed to get beautiful photos of them all - I especially love this one picture of us with all 8 kids. We also had some family formals following the ceremony and both our families loved how these turned out!
Overall, I highly recommend Ishan/Preeti if you want a fun photoshoot experience and photos that'll capture your day.

Wedding at The Rockleigh - 26 Paris Ave, Rockleigh, NJ 07647 | Wedding ceremony at Saint Joseph's Roman Catholic church
I first heard about Ishan and Preeti from my friend who hired them for her wedding and highly recommended them. When I spoke to them about their style and saw their collections, I knew I wanted them to photograph my wedding. They were very friendly and professional and helped me plan the logistics of the wedding, such as where to have the first look and the best lighting for the reception. I filled out a detailed questionnaire they provided so that they knew my expectations. When I saw my photo collection after the wedding, I was so happy with how the pictures turned out! Since it was an Indian wedding, they were able to capture the many special moments and the richness of the outfit colors. All my friends and family thought the pictures were beautiful. Their website also allows you to download any of your pictures in high quality and share the album with others. I would absolutely recommend Ishanfotografi to anyone who asks me.
RANGAN & DHWANI
Wedding At The Marigold - 315 Churchill Ave, Somerset, NJ 08873 | Engagement Session At Princeton University - Princeton, NJ 08544
Ishan Fotografi are the best!
We worked with them for our engagement in late 2019. We were so impressed with his professionalism and photos that we decided to go with them for the wedding (Sept 2020) as well! Ishan, Preeti & Team are friendly, open, and transparent. They are responsive, flexible, and are willing to always go the extra mile to make sure the photos come out the way we want them.
We also did a photoshoot with them. I highly recommend them for it. Ishan and Preeti are really good at working with couples that are shy behind the camera. They guided us through a variety of shots, angles, and poses and it was well worth it.
In preparing for the wedding, especially during the chaos from Covid, photography was the only component that we did not have to worry about. They handled everything so well that we had the chance to enjoy our wedding day and not focus on photography. They clearly know what they are doing and when and where they need to be to capture the best moments.
If you’re looking for an amazing team with lots of energy, experience, and professionalism, then look no further! They actually are invested in your event and the quality of their output reflects that. They also are very relatable, great at conversation, and have a great sense of humor!
I look forward to working with Ishan and Preeti again and will recommend them to anyone for any occasion.
Caitlin & Ryan
Wedding at Gurney’s Star Island Resort & Marina, Montauk, NY | Engagement Session at Kensico Dam Plaza - 1 Bronx River Pkwy Rd, Valhalla, NY 10595
Best wedding planning decision I made! I never write long reviews, but I can't say enough great things about Ishan Fotografi. Also, this is one of the biggest decisions for your wedding day, so do your research!
Ishan and Preeti are incredible people and artists. My husband and I were adamant on not having cheesy pictures and not spending a ridiculous amount of money – they certainly met both our requirements and much more. Our pictures are one of a kind. For our engagement photos, Ishan and Preeti were willing to drive around Westchester and take photos at numerous locations that meant something special to us. They are so creative with light and texture and are daring to go anywhere. We ended up making a guest book out of those photos and everyone gushed over them at the wedding.
And then our wedding day..Oh My Goodness. I have never seen such beautiful photos. We got married in Montauk and after our first look, we went out by the lighthouse and took photos over the bluffs. They are INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!
I put my wedding day schedule in the hands of Ishan and Preeti. They are not at all pushy but they will be assertive and direct others when necessary. They got great shots of Ryan and myself getting ready separately before the wedding. Preeti made sure to get photos of myself with my dog – which meant the world to me. They orchestrated our first look, which was perfectly private.
We got married at a yacht club and we had mentioned to Ishan how we would love a photo on a big yacht. He again rose to the occasion. We found friendly boat owners who let us board their ship and Ishan got photos of us opening champagne and drone photos of us lying on the bow. He thinks on his feet and comes up with awesome photos in any circumstance.
Ishan Fotografi really captured the highlights of the wedding perfectly. The photos were available by the time we were back from our honeymoon. We just received our album, which is not only breathtaking but really tells the story of the wedding day.
I want to add how chill, fun, and thoughtful this couple is. When we first met them we bonded over Trader Joe’s coffee – and soon after they sent us a box full of it!!! We were concerned about feeling awkward for our engagement album so they encouraged us to have a drink or two beforehand which did loosen us up! After shooting, we ended up hanging out over dinner, which was so fun and relaxing.
I highly recommend Ishan Fotografi for your wedding. They are the best wedding planning decision I made. I recently talked to a friend who paid over twice as much and her photos are all the typical cheesy wedding photos…. Don’t make the same mistake!
Sonal & Amol
Wedding at Sheraton Parsippany, Parsippany, NJ
Best Photographers EVER!!!! Ishan and Preeti were absolutely incredible. They brought a sincere, genuine, light-hearted touch to the entire weekend and made me and my now wife extremely comfortable. Not to mention, they are unbelievably competent and professional, the photos turned out better than we could have possibly imagined. We can't thank these two enough for capturing our most special weekend in the most special way possible. They also charged the most reasonable prices out of any of the photographers we had reached out to, and I am willing to bet they did as good if not a better job than any of the others we could have gone with. They have been prompt with every email correspondence, every edit we have asked them to perform, all with their own friendly and loving demeanor. We would strongly recommend Ishan Fotografi for any event, especially for you or anyone you know to get married. Thanks, Ishan and Preeti!!
Vaishalie & Alex
Surprise Engagement Proposal at Shakespeare Garden - Central Park Conservancy, 79th St Transverse, New York, NY 10024
Ishan and Preeti are superstars!! This amazing husband & wife team perfectly captured my fiancé and my special moments during a surprise proposal in Central Park. Ishan and Preeti both went above and beyond during the entire process of photographing what ended up being the best day of our lives! Ishan kept in constant communication with my fiancé during the entire planning process, and both Ishan and Preeti made us feel so at ease and comfortable during our proposal/engagement shoot.
Ishan and Preeti captured wonderful candid moments and had so many fresh ideas for poses that didn't look overly staged or forced whatsoever! My fiancé and I, as well as our family and friends, were absolutely floored when we viewed the gallery of pictures from this special day. Thanks to Ishan and Preeti, we have stunning photos to look back and relive this beautiful milestone in our lives.
The best part of it all, you ask? Ishan and Preeti sent us our entire gallery of pictures on the very same day. Our families and friends were oooh-ing and ahhh-ing at every single breath-taking picture! We could not have dreamed of a better experience for our proposal/engagement shoot. We would highly recommend Ishan Fotografi for any of your photography needs!!
Jessica & Robert
Wedding At Villa Russo's - 101-12 Lefferts Blvd, Richmond Hill, NY 11419 | Portraits At John Paul Jones Park - Shore Parkway 101st Street Brooklyn NY
What can we say, Ishan & Preeti did an amazing job capturing our special day my wife, Jess, and I shared. I say this with all honesty, I hate getting my photos taken but, I felt very comfortable with them and enjoyed viewing ALL of our photos. They had captured what we asked and then some! We loved the candid moments as well as the big group shot at our venue with the wedding party. The turnaround time and communication was great. We HIGHLY recommend Ishan & Preeti as your photographers, as their attention to detail can not be matched.
Wedding at Kent Manor Inn - 500 Kent Manor Dr, Stevensville, MD 21666 | Engagement Session at Central Park, New York
BEST Wedding Photographers!! Wouldn't go with anyone else!! Where do we even begin with Ishan and Preeti of Ishan Fotografi?! Our experience with them was nothing short of amazing. My husband and I (and all of our guests!) would highly recommend Ishan Fotografi to any couple looking for talented, thoughtful, creative, adventurous, understanding, professional, responsive and downright fun photographers!
I first got introduced to Ishan & Preeti a year before my wedding at another wedding they were shooting. I really liked their vibe/personality while working with the couple - they were really thoughtful in their approach and shots they took, had great ideas/visions and were really great at demonstrating poses for the couple because they're a couple themselves! I immediately reached out to them the next day to get to know them a bit more. Ishan and Preeti were very communicative from the beginning - answering any of our questions via email, text or phone call; inviting us to their place to see their work; asking us how the wedding planning was going; etc.
We got along with them instantaneously and knew we didn't want to book anyone else. Not only were Ishan & Preeti great photographers, but also GREAT company! We loved every minute of our engagement shoot with them. It can get a little awkward taking photos in public, but Ishan and Preeti made it super fun and relaxed. That kind of energy and vibe cascaded throughout the wedding weekend. We were so appreciative of this, especially because they knew how to help us navigate stressful situations as they arose throughout the weekend and made sure our photos still came out great! They also took the time to walk around our venue and scope out the best places to take the different types of photos we wanted.
We received our photos very quickly after the wedding. There are so many amazing shots we are having a hard time picking our favorites!! Definitely a good problem to have :) If we ever are in need of photographers again, we know exactly who we'll be calling!
Alisa & Pranay
Wedding at Claxton Farm - 288 Upper Flat Creek Rd, Weaverville, NC 28787
Amazing Experience!! From the moment we booked Ishan, we knew it was the best decision we had ever made besides marrying each other. Ishan is very organized and easy to work with. Whether you don't know quite what your schedule should be to include pictures or the best locations within your venue, he has got your back. We were both super impressed by how professional and seamless the whole experience was. Our wedding pictures turned out phenomenal and we have gotten tons of compliments on them. Both him and his wife Preeti were a huge help throughout the wedding process. Preeti could not have been more clutch on the big day helping me with my dress. They are such an enjoyable couple to work with and have now become good friends of ours. Their design aesthetic is on point too! The thank you cards and album they designed for us could not have been more perfect! If you are looking for any easy to work with a vendor, stunning photos, and an overall awesome experience, book them today! Like right now! Before anyone else can!
Sonam & Ravi
Wedding at Leonard’s Palazzo - 555 Northern Blvd, Great Neck, NY 11021
The Dynamic Duo of my dreams! Ishan Fotografi came highly recommended by our friends and from the moment we spoke to Ishan, we immediately knew that we wanted to work with him. Ishan and his wife, Preeti were our photographers for our mehndi, ceremony and reception and were a DREAM to work with. From the moment they came to take our getting ready shots at 6 am, they made us very comfortable and coached us on posing and standing in natural light that would help us get some incredible shots. They also were very quick on their feet - adapting throughout the day to get amazing shots - ie: from quirky shots when my husband's friends brought him a taco bell breakfast burrito to checking out hidden passages at our venue!
Since our wedding was in a literal polar vortex (Feb 1st!), the dynamic duo was extremely thoughtful in letting me sneak inside even for a couple of moments to warm up as we would be taking our first look shots outside the venue. We had preordered color bombs for that photoshoot and Ishan and Preeti created magic with those photos. Preeti also became my personal make up touch up lady as she would immediately come to the rescue to make sure none of the red kanku (powder) from the ceremony didn't stain and the pictures would be flawless.
During our reception photo shoot whilst cocktail hour was going on, Ishan and Preeti could tell I was visibly tired and did everything possible to make sure I was hydrated, laughing and having fun. They captured beautiful candid shots which were my priority, both of Ravi and I, but also of our guests, especially on the dance floor. The best part? We had our full gallery within just a couple of weeks! I couldn't recommend Ishan and Preeti enough and look forward to booking them for a future event!
Priya & Dil
Surprise Engagement Proposal at Beachwood Beach - Clubhouse Rd, Beachwood, NJ 08722
This husband and wife team made my dream engagement shoot come true. It rained heavily the day my fiancé proposed but they remained calm and were able to capture amazing pictures working with the lighting, sunset, and clouds. They made a point to capture all the moments that were important to us, especially the actual “yes!” Of the proposal and really made us feel so comfortable. I would highly recommend them to anyone. True professionals that made the shoot so fun and wholesome❤
Shefali & Mahesh
Wedding at Fox Hill Inn - 257 Federal Rd, Brookfield, CT 06804
Hire this dynamic duo to capture your dream wedding! Ishan & Preeti were simply amazing! Their presence, their energy, and their passion for what they do is something you definitely want as a part of your wedding day :) Indian weddings are stressful, there are quite akin to multi-dimensional games of chess with the customs, rituals, and the sheer number of people. In between all of this, if you are blessed to have photographers that really treat you like family and keep the day on schedule then that's something we should all sign up for! They sent us wedding pics within a month & the pictures were simply AMAZING! These aren't your typical cheesy Indian wedding photos (though they'll indulge you if you want some of those too) but rather a more photojournalistic approach to capturing emotions on the most important day of your life! Strongly recommend and a pleasure to work with!!
Tara & Fahim
Wedding at Terrace on the Park - 52-11 111th St, Corona, NY 11368 | Reception at Leonard’s Palazzo - 555 Northern Blvd, Great Neck, NY 11021 | Engagement shoot at Brooklyn Bridge - Brooklyn Bridge, New York, NY 10038
We Hired Wedding Photographers But Got So Much More! We highly recommend Ishan and Preeti as wedding photographers. They captured every single special moment during our multi-day Pakistani-Bangladeshi wedding.
While we were searching for wedding photographers, we kept coming across photographers whose style was more traditional Desi or just too lovey-dovey romantic. We wanted a photographer that understood our cultures and how our weddings work, but also someone who had a creative eye and wouldn’t have us doing poses where we were just doing typical romantic poses. My husband and I wanted photos that were FUN and captured our personalities and Ishan and Preeti definitely delivered. They are a friendly, funny, and creative team that helped us secure the type of engagement and wedding photos that we wanted.
Ishan and Preeti were incredibly flexible and were more than willing to accommodate some of our more absurd requests, such as doing a sunrise engagement shoot (at 5am!) on the Brooklyn Bridge. Despite the not so perfect weather (it ended up being a rainy, sunrise shoot), Ishan and Preeti took their time in taking such amazing photographs. Even though they were supposed to only spend two hours with us, they did not rush us at all and took photographs in all the places we wanted.
Ishan and Preeti are also incredibly organized and gave us some helpful feedback on our wedding timeline prior to the big weekend. They helped to ensure that we had dedicated enough time for each and every part of the day. In addition, they did an amazing job in taking pre-wedding photos with our giant wedding party. They were able to capture every combination of group/individual shots possible in a short amount of time.
My bridesmaids and I are also indebted to Preeti. The bridesmaids wore saris to the wedding, but many of them did not know how to wrap them. Preeti took the time to help my girls out by making sure their saris were wrapped and safety-pinned appropriately. Similarly, Preeti was my hero when it came to properly draping my dupatta. My mother, sister, and HMUA were all struggling to figure out how to set it. Within seconds, Preeti swooped in and made sure everything was set and looked properly. When I arrived all dressed for my reception the next day, to which I wore a sari, Preeti again came to the rescue and made sure it was wrapped properly.
Our whole family, ourselves included, are in awe of the amazing engagement and wedding photos that Ishan and Preeti took. It truly is hard to pick a favorite because there are so many great pictures. They are truly a talented duo and we would highly recommend them! We will definitely be booking them for any future events!
Joanne & Jimmy
Wedding at David’s Country Inn - 314 Main St, Hackettstown, NJ 07840 | Engagement Session at Branch Brook Park - Lake St & Park Avenue, Newark, NJ 07104
Warm and amazing photographer! We loved working with Ishan and Preeti for our wedding day and engagement photos!! They are such warm and friendly people that we felt at ease right away, even though me and my fiancée are not normally comfortable in front of the camera! They helped explain the kind of poses that would look flattering or highlight our features, by demonstrating for us (they are a husband and wife team themselves!) and took the time to listen to the ideas that we had for pictures too! They were so accommodating in going to the engagement site that we wanted, even though it was early in the morning and we had to play it by ear, depending on the weather. During the wedding day itself, they helped keep us on schedule while capturing more than enough photos for first look and after ceremony pictures. They were so unobtrusive that we didn't even notice them capturing pictures while we were dancing! They have a great eye. I am so pleased with the photos that came out, as there were so many stunning ones to choose from (to display) and they were so easy and professional and great to work with. Very responsive to communication! I would definitely recommend to any friends who are getting married!

Wedding at The Merion - 1301 US-130, Cinnaminson, NJ 08077 | Engagement Shoot at Washington, DC & Brookside Gardens - 1800, Visitors Center, Glenallan Ave, Wheaton, MD 20902
Our Favorite Vendor! Working with Ishan and Preeti was the best part of our wedding planning year and wedding. Starting from our fun engagement shoot through our wedding, we enjoyed spending time with them so much!! They were great about including our dog in our engagement shoot. As a husband and wife couple, they really do a great job showing you how to look your best together. They were super flexible, communicative, and got our wedding album turned around in under a month. Can't recommend them enough, not only for the quality of their pictures, but also because they're both a pleasure to work with.
Kelly & Noah
Wedding at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club - 811 Rattlesnake Bridge Rd #2824, Bedminster, NJ 07921
Ishan and Preeti are wonderful to work with. I could not recommend them enough. Not only do they do beautiful work, but they themselves are fantastic. My husband and I planned our wedding from UT, so we were only able to meet them in person for the first time a few weeks before our wedding. Despite the distance, they were incredibly communicative and made us feel like we were in good hands. My husband and I aren't particularly comfortable in front of the camera, but on our wedding day they made taking all of the pictures so much fun. Even after our wedding day, they continued to be great to work with as they provided us our wedding photos and designed our wedding album.
Radha & Eli
Wedding at The Marigold - 315 Churchill Ave, Somerset, NJ 08873 | First Look at
We hired Ishan and Preeti to shoot our wedding, and I really do not know how to express how highly we recommend them. It was unlike any other vendor relationship we had. They literally invited us into their home so we could get to know each other. They really took time to find out who we were and what made our relationship special, and when it came time for the big day we were all so comfortable together it all felt natural and easy.
AND OMG THE PICTURES!
The pictures are the perfect combination of artistry and candidness. They capture our personalities and emotions, and when we look at them we are filled with the sheer joy of our wedding day all over again. Honestly, we could not be happier with how everything turned out, and we cannot thank Ishan and Preeti enough.
Michelle & Jake
Wedding at Marco Beach Ocean Resort - 480 S Collier Blvd, Marco Island, FL 34145 | Engagement Session at Dumbo, Brooklyn, New York City
As soon as I booked my venue, the next thing I did was book Ishan and Preeti because I wanted to make sure they were available to photograph our wedding. Being a photographer myself, I knew photography was one thing I would be particular about, and I wanted the very best of the best. They captured our destination wedding in March of 2018 in Marco Island, Florida. Unfortunately it down poured on our wedding day, but you would never know from the vibrant images they delivered. They will go above and beyond to get the perfect shots, whether it is balancing on chairs, crawling on the ground, or shooting under umbrellas in the rain. We absolutely love all of the pictures. It is truly impossible to choose your favorites. To this day when people talk about how amazing our wedding was, they always mention how wonderful our photographers were (my best friend even booked them for her wedding!) I highly recommend choosing Ishan Fotografi. They are beyond talented and truly made our wedding day special.
Megan & Matthew
Wedding at David’s Country Inn - 314 Main St, Hackettstown, NJ 07840 | Engagement Session at Ringwood State Park - 1304 Sloatsburg Rd, Ringwood, NJ 07456
When we started to plan our wedding we went with another photographer, but one day I saw some pictures by Ishan Fotografi on Instagram and knew I had to switch! The artistry, lighting, and emotion their photos have is amazing! We set up a meeting with Ishan and Preeti and that further cemented the decision to switch. They are so easy to work with and professional. I would highly recommend them to any newly engaged couple!
Outstanding work and a passion for what they do. If you’re looking for outstanding photography, look no further than Ishan Fotografi. They certainly work WITH you, not for you. Their attention to detail and professionalism is fantastic, but their willingness to get to know you is what made the experience wonderful. We highly recommend Ishan Fotografi to anyone!
Setal & Parag
Surprise Engagement Proposal at Pier C Park - 340 Sinatra Dr, Hoboken, NJ 07030
Had an awesome experience with Ishan and his wife. They were very responsive from the start when inquiring about availability and pricing. On the day of my proposal I told them the plan and they were open to a few idea I had and executed them perfectly. They captured pics of my fiance's surprised reaction, me popping the question, friends/fam congratulating us afterwards, and took my fiance and I to take various personnel pic.They also provided pics within the same night so I can share them via social media and the full gallery very soon after. I was very satisfied with their work and will high consider them for future celebrations
Nikita & Sridharan
Wedding at Hanover Marriott - 1401 Rt 10 E, Whippany, NJ 07981
We would recommend Ishan and Preeti to all our friends and family!
Choosing a photographer is one of the most important decisions for couples in wedding planning. Not only are they responsible for capturing the memories but you spend more time than anyone else at your wedding with your photographers! We knew Preeti and Ishan had to be our photographers from the moment we met them because they both are such fun and relaxed people whom we could envision ourselves spending the most special day with! We absolutely loved working with them. They not only brought a great energy, they know how to work with big families and all the chaos that weddings inevitably bring, which was so important for us. They never said no to anything that was part of our vision even when other photographers would. They capture a good mix of documentary style pictures alongside classic pictures and they all look amazing! We would recommend them to all our friends and family!
Meena & Aakash
Wedding at The Westin Governor Morris, 2 Whippany Rd, Morristown, NJ
Is my wedding going to run on time? Did I allow enough time for pictures with family and friends? How will I ensure the biggest moments of my wedding day are captured? These are probably thoughts that run thru every bride and groom’s head as they plan for their wedding.
My biggest fear was running behind schedule and losing out on time for pictures with my family, bridal party and close friends. However, after I met Ishan and Preeti from Ishan Fotografi, my concerns were out the door. From my very first phone call with Ishan, he was beyond professional and very easy to work with. Even in the middle of the wedding season, he was very responsive to my numerous emails and phone calls (this was even before we booked them!). My friend who had hired them for her wedding had nothing but nice things to say about their photography and service, but even then, I was blown away by their sincere commitment in wanting to capture every special moment of our wedding day. They were interested in wanting to getting to know us and our personalities, and having that shine in our pictures. They also took the time and effort to review every detail of our timeline to ensure that we allocated enough time for pictures and recommended other schedules changes to help the day run smoothly. And they were right! Despite a few hiccups with the weather (which were out of everyone’s control), Ishan and Preeti managed to keep us on our timeline all the while taking beautiful pictures. I love their candid style and really believe our emotions shine right through every photo. The turnaround time on the edited photos was faster than I expected and we look forward to working with them on our photo albums! As people, Ishan and Preeti are down-to-earth, calming, and people that I was happy to be around for 12 hours of my wedding day! Thanks for leaving us with photos and memories to last a lifetime!
Elizabeth & RJ
Wedding at The Ryland Inn - 115 Old Hwy 28, Whitehouse Station, NJ 08889
Ishan Fotografi and all of its photographers are amazing! They are very detailed oriented and creative, while being very professional and warm. We really enjoyed working with them and we felt very comfortable throughout the process and our wedding day. We have absolutely stunning photos from our special day and we couldn’t have done it without them!
Christine & William

Where do I start?! Ishan and Preeti are an absolute joy to work with. Thank heavens we found them! I fell in love with their photos just from looking at their website, but once getting in touch with them and meeting, we instantly clicked. They are incredibly friendly, easy to work with, and flexible. They were patient with all my questions leading up to signing our contract and worked within our budget. We had an engagement shoot with them, and although camera shy, they made me feel comfortable and at ease. We had such a great time with them during the shoot that we grabbed a bite to eat with them after :). They're just fantastic people! Leading up to the wedding we kept in touch and they were very responsive. They helped with the day-of timeline details and even when our timing and location plans derailed the day of the wedding, they made it work. We just received our photos from the wedding and I can't stress enough how amazing they are! I constantly get complimented on them. You will not go wrong with hiring this team. Thank you again guys!!! You really captured the best moments of our day.

Love Ishan & Preeti from Ishan Fotografi! We can't rave about Ishan & Preeti enough.
We faced a myriad of challenges when it came to planning our 500 person, 3 day Indian wedding, including changing the wedding venue less than 60 days from our wedding date, but Ishan Fotografi was, by far, the EASIEST vendor to work with.
The first time we met Ishan & Preeti, we learned about their photography style, saw sample albums, but what really set them apart from others we were talking with was their genuine hospitality and sincerity. They tried to get to know Bhav (my husband) and I as a couple, figure out our style and get us comfortable with them before the wedding weekend.
Wedding weekends are stressful all around - there are always surges of so many emotions, tight timelines, sleepless nights and family taking pictures everywhere.
Ishan and Preeti were amazing in navigating the complexities of an Indian wedding, communicating fairly and reasonably to ensure that all of our post-event photoshoots went on time (something that was really important to us).
Having to relocate our wedding to Reading, PA at the last minute, we didn’t have a chance to explore any surrounding areas for photo ops. Ishan & Preeti arrived early on the day of our first event and found a spot for us. Not only that, but they talked to the hotel staff and arranged for two shuttles to transport us, themselves and videographers to all travel to the offsite location on the morning of our wedding and still make it back in time for our 9AM baraat start time. They went above and beyond the call of duty by every measure. While on our offsite wedding photoshoot, Bhav and I were already on our third wedding event and, frankly, tired of smiling and posing. Realizing this, Ishan started making funny comments, (like telling Bhav to whisper his favorite fruit in my ear), and pulled back memories from the first time we met them when Ishan & Preeti assessed that we were more light-hearted and funny together as a couple. They made our 7AM photoshoot, so effortless, easy and fun! I remember saying the day after that the early morning photoshoot set the tone for the rest of the day. By the time we got back to the hotel, all our guests were super excited to see us and celebrate with us and Bhav and I had already shared our private moments together so we were also ready to celebrate with everyone, too.
Ishan & Preeti, seriously, we can’t thank you enough. You captured beautiful memories of us genuinely enjoying every single moment of our wedding weekend and it’s because you took the time to get to know us before to understand what we wanted for our special weekend. Thank you so much! You will always be my #1 recommendation for anyone looking for a photographer!

Deciding to work with Ishan Fotografi for our wedding was one of the best decisions we could have ever made. Ishan and Preeti felt like old friends instead of people we just met! They constantly made us feel comfortable and kept us laughing! They were very flexible and willing to work with us when we were trying to plan a wedding from different state. They were always there to answer any and every question we had and did it with a smile! The hardest decision we had to make was deciding which photographs to have printed from our engagement shoot and our wedding day because they were all breath taking.
I cannot say this enough..but booking Ishan Fotografi is a MUST!! They are professional, personable, and worth every penny. We love them!!

Working with Ishan Fotografi was unique in the sense that you work with a couple who understand dynamics in a partnership. This is to mean they were superb in finding those small moments between myself and my wife during our wedding that made for some wonderful photos. We don't subscribe to a lot of the photos that we felt were too "posed" and Ishan & Preeti were able to accommodate us. They found poses with meaning behind it. On top of this they were extremely accommodating and helpful
They were also very responsive and a blast to work with.

Ishan and Preeti are incredible photographers. We couldn’t have asked for a better photography on our big day. They really take the time to get to know the couple and their vision for the day. From our first email both were so helpful in giving amazing advice when it came to coordination. The day of can be stressful for both the bride and groom, but Ishan and Preeti are pros are ensuring the couple everything will be okay. The photography is beautiful, all the emotions of the day were captured so perfectly - my husband and I are still in awe! Ishan and Preeti are so professional, kind and amazing at what they do!

We loved working with Ishan & Preeti! They did a fantastic job capturing our wedding day and kept it fun (not an easy feat when you're taking photos outside in 100-degree weather in full Indian garb). The dynamic duo seems to have a knack for encapsulating moments with wonderful candid photographs. You can't go wrong with these guys. Seriously, we'll be ooohing and awwwwing over our photos for years to come!

Wedding at Minerals Resort & Spa - 1 Stonehill Dr, Vernon Township, NJ 07462 | Engagement Session at Unionville Vineyards - 9 Rocktown Rd, Ringoes, NJ 08551
My husband and I got married last August and we hired Ishan and his wife for our engagement shoot and wedding. We don’t think there are enough words to describe how awesome they were. They made it fun and were incredibly easy going. They made sure everything I wanted was captured. We didn’t feel rushed at any point.
At our wedding, we were running behind schedule and limited on time. As a result, we had to take photos close to venue. They made it work. No one would know our photos were captured basically in a parking lot. We also had a downpour during the ceremony and at last minute, a tent was set up. The plans for group photos changed last minute due to the rain and not many locations indoor for photos. They quickly found new space for photos and made it work once again. You would never know looking at the photos we dealt with humidity that was greater than 90%.
Our pictures are all amazing and we have a hard time picking photos to print as they all are so good. So many great moments were captured. We feel like we relive our wedding every time we look at the photos. We plan to use them whenever we need a photographer. We can’t wait to plan an event just to hire them again.

Ishan and Preeti are very talented photographers who I had the pleasure to work with. They captured me since the moment I saw the quality of their work. They are not your regular wedding photographers; they have a unique gift and magic to capture special moments. For them pictures are not about the pose, they are about capturing the realness of the moment and also how the emotions convey in the body language. You are going to get pictures from your wedding that you would never get from anyone else. Besides their talent at the moment of the shooting, they have a great knowledge for processing and retouching images; they know how to explote the magic of colors and get the best crops out of the images. I loved the experience of working with them so much that I brought them with me to my second wedding at Colombia. You will not only work with professionals, but also with great people who really give 110% to their work.
