Sohal Studios has been photographing Indian weddings for over 10 years and counting with a consistent team of photographers.  Over the years, we have received numerous international awards and recognition.  We pride ourselves in providing each of our clients with a unique style that fits their personalities and relationship to give their wedding a signature look.  To ensure we can provide the best possible service and experience to our couples, we only capture a limited amount of weddings each year.  This allows us to spend valuable time on capturing and editing all your images.  All images are edited in house and not outsourced to  third party editors.  We ensure the week leading up to your wedding is kept available for you to ensure we can capture all your pre wedding events. We meet with our couples several times before the wedding to ensure we all share the same vision. We will also provide you with guidelines to help us to serve you at the highest level. We want to ensure we capture your unique personalities in a fun and comfortable way
