Per Day/ Per Session:
Your Pre wedding shoot charges also depend on how many days have planned your pre-wedding shoot for. For example, a single day pre wedding shoot involving 2 different locations in Mumbai will cost you less than a two days pre wedding shoot in Mumbai at 4 different locations. It is an important point to discuss with your photographer as overall charges will depend on them.
