Wedding Photographer Rashingam had a very successful career in telemarketing and travel industry in New Delhi for many years which however was very stressful and lifeless to his taste. Growing up in the very bosom of Mother Nature amidst beautiful hills and valleys in Manipur also called “the Jewel of India”, he always had an undying love and fascination for nature and developed the hobby of photography at an early age.
Later with his hobby becoming his passion and his passion becoming an obsession, he quit his profession to follow his dream of becoming a photographer – helping people treasure special moments in life and telling stories to provide inspiration through his photography.
Starting as the unofficial and sometimes an uninvited photographer in different events, he further developed a special ability to capture moments especially in weddings. Realising that he could make a difference in people’s lives in his own unique way through his photography, he found a greater sense of purpose and satisfaction for his life. With a list of awards to his name, Rashingam Ngoruh has established himself as a seasoned photographer traveling in different parts of India on invitation to cover weddings and to hold photo exhibitions of his works ranging from nature, landscape, faces, to abstract photography.
Why wedding photography?
There is something magical about weddings. It involves a lot of emotions…happiness, joy, laughter, sometimes even sadness and nostalgia. To capture all of those emotions is a very satisfying experience.
Do you take each and every order?
Depends on my schedule. I do take as much as possible, but never more than one on the same day.
What is your favourite part and what do you hate most?
I love shooting pictures that covers a wide range of different emotions. But my favourite part is when I see the happiness of my clients when they see their pictures. That gives me a lot of satisfaction. I don’t really have any particular thing that I hate about photography. As tiring as it can be sometimes, it is a very rewarding experience.
How does booking work?
Any prospective client can visit my website and check my work at www.rashingamngoruh.com where all my contact information is given. They can mail me directly from the website itself or use their own email. I have my own photography page on FB and Instagram too. So anyone can send me messages there too.
An important thing to note is that my clients are required to sign a contract after an agreement has been reached for the booking. Nothing too complicated in it. Just the basic agreements on how things will be sorted out in case of extraordinary circumstances.
How much do you charge?
I have a couple of packages which can be found on my website. Charges often vary depending on the needs of the client and the length of time (hours/days). But generally, the range starts from 50K and may go as high as 150K.
