Gorgeous Photos Amazing PhotographerReviewed on 2/18/2015 Christina C
The pictures are stunning and Preetika is wonderful to work with. What else do you need in a photographer? When I was looking for a photographer, I was choosing between three. I sent all of their portfolios to my bridesmaids to get guidance. It was unanimous that Saffron Sky Photography was the best. Why? Preetika has a very natural style of catching people in the moment instead of stilted posed shots. She also has an artistic eye that I really appreciate. Do you have artsy shots from pinterest that you want to replicate? Preetika is able to do it to a tee and takes creative shots of her own. You can see through her pictures that she is an artist (not just a photographer). And finally, the diversity of her couples really stuck out to us. I was having a Jewish wedding and I wanted the finer details to be captured. Preetika did this beautifully. Preetika herself is a joy to work with. She is energetic and upbeat. The image I have of her in my mind is always smiling. Preetika fit in seamlessly with my bridal party and it was as if I had another friend coming around with us instead of a photographer inserting herself in precious moments. Now when I look through the pictures (all 1,137 of them!) I’m shocked about how many moments she (and her second shooter) captured. I didn’t even realize they were there half the time. I think one of the best things about Saffron Sky Photography is that there are two photographers included in the price (and it is a very affordable price). I felt this was crucial the day of to capture every moment. We got pictures of both the guys and the girls getting ready, two viewpoints of our first look pictures, and pictures of the cocktail hour happening while the bridal party and family were outside taking pictures. Two photographers are definitely a must have at your wedding. This was all a very long way to say that Saffron Sky Photography does amazing work and I cannot recommend anyone more highly.
5 Stars and a Thousand ThanksReviewed on 1/15/2015
This review is difficult to write, only because there are so many positive things to say and I don't know where to start. Simply put, Preetika did a wonderful job. My husband and I agree that we cannot imagine anyone else photographing our event, or us, so perfectly. We loved all the portraits and shots of the wedding party, but, we were especially impressed with the photographs from the reception. Every memorable moment was captured. Flipping through the proofs, I was amazed to see some of them-- not only because of the stunning quality, but because I had completely forgotten the camera was even there. After the event, we received many positive comments about our photographer from the guests. She is personable and fantastic to work with! Honestly, I shouldn't say that Preetika's photos captured the event. Rather, they enhanced it. I am glad that these are the photos that I will remember the day by. For Quality, Service, and Value: 5 stars and a thousand thanks.
Preetika only gets 5 stars because I can't give her more!Reviewed on 1/09/2015 Hannah O
I have known the lovely and talented Preetika for many years, but I first had the opportunity to see her work when I got engaged and asked her to take a few engagement shots for us. As I never had a "vision" for what I wanted, I really just needed a few photos to communicate the basic idea: "we really like each other, and we're in this relationship for the long-haul" so-to-speak. Well, to say I was impressed by the photos would be a terrible understatement. Preetika made us look like superstars (she's a genius with a camera and photoshop;)) and made our love look so beautiful and as comfortable and genuine as it is. I'm a terribly awkward person as soon as I notice a camera, but Preetika made the process natural and easy. By the end of our engagement session, we forgot the camera was there - and the proof is in the beautiful, natural photos. Needless to say, I called Preetika as soon as I set a date for my wedding. I actually called her before I called a planner! That's how desperately I wanted her to take our wedding photos. I have just received the DVD of our photos and I think choosing my favorite shots might actually be more difficult than planning the wedding. The photos are, in a word, stunning. There is simply no other effective way to describe them. Although Preetika is kind enough not to admit it, I am sure countless hours went into the editing of the photos (there is no way I looked as beautiful on the day as I do in the photos...seriously). I have shared some with my family and friends and the reactions have been consistently positive and I'm dealing with an overwhelming number of requests for prints. There are not enough stars in the rating!! Preetika's work deserves more than 5 stars, but that's all they would let me choose! Book her now before she's famous!
Great photographyReviewed on 8/13/2014 Kate H
Both Preetika and her husband made us both feel very comfortable throughout the entire day! Preetika really became a part of our big day and was a huge hit with myself and our wedding party alike. My pictures turned out beautifully, I would recommend Saffron Sky to any bride, you will not be disappointed! I only wish I lived in Houston and could have had them do my bridals and our engagements.
Best Experience!!Reviewed on 6/18/2014 Melanie A
We had an amazing experience! We had engagement photos taken before the wedding and used some of the pictures for our save-the-date. Preetika is so friendly and easy to work with! She really helps you feel comfortable while taking the pictures! She did a great job getting a bunch of different backgrounds and poses so we had a ton to choose from! For the wedding, her husband, John, also came to take pictures, and it was nice having 2 photographers, so he could take pictures of the guys getting ready, while Preetika took pictures of the girls getting ready! They are both so nice and open to any ideas or suggestions we had for pictures. We loved all of the photos of the ceremony and reception and would definitely recommend her!
Happy Happy BrideReviewed on 5/14/2014 Brittany N
I used Saffron Sky Photography for my engagement photos and my bridal photos. Preetika (the photographer) is absolutely amazing. Not only does she take amazing pictures, she is so very kind. She was very patient with my mother and friend who were eager to give "suggestions" on photos that should be taken. She also made the experience enjoyable for my fiance who was not keen on the idea of taking engagement photos in the first place. On both occasions, the pictures were returned very quickly. For my engagment session, the edited pictures were returned within days. For my bridal photos, the pictures were returned within a week and a half, which is absolutely amazing considering she sent me over 280 edited files. The services were also extremely affordable for the Houston area, and she provided me with a disc of the numerous edited images to do with what I pleased. I met with several photographers who would charge hundreds of dollars extra for this service, and they were not half a personable. I would highly recommend this photographer for her personality, quality of the images, and value. She made this potentially stressful process incredibly easy and fun.
Best ChoiceReviewed on 2/05/2014 Nina M
Rajgariah Photography was the best choice I made for my wedding. They listened to the type of memories I wanted captured and really delivered quality pictures. Preetika and John were so great and easy to work with. They really knew how to show the love and happiness we were feeling. They were so great, that I have family members who want prints, cause they made each shot look great. Fantastic job, love love love them.
Absolutely perfect!Reviewed on 12/01/2013 Aimee K
Preetika took photos for my rehearsal dinner and wedding and they came out more gorgeous than I ever imagined possible. She is incredibly talented, easy to work with, and very professional. I felt very comfortable working with her and her husband. I absolutely love them both and I especially love my beautiful photos. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing a photographer!! Thank you Preetika!
Perfect!Reviewed on 10/28/2013 Lynn C
Hartley and I are based in Abu Dhabi and, no thanks to the distance, weren't too hands on with planning the wedding. Our wedding planner, Moon of Events by Momo recommended that we use Rajgariah Photography for our wedding. Her recommendation was spot on! Preetika was our wedding photographer and MORE. She was super cool and super friendly (on top of being punctual and as it turns out - an amazing photographer) and went above and beyond the call of duty. I don't know how we could have done it without her advice and help with wardrobe malfunctions (eep!). Hartley tells me that John was also amazing and the guys had the best time getting ready at their side. The two of them were super fun - we kind of wished they were our guests so they could party with us! And of course --- the wedding photos were beautiful! They even managed to make me look great! I am terrible in photos and usually hate having them taken and always pull the worst faces in the world. Best. Photographers. Ever. We would recommend them in a heartbeat.
Amazing Amazing Amazing!Reviewed on 9/25/2013
The title should say it all! We rang Preetika 5 days before our very last minute wedding and asked if she might be able to come along for a few hours and take some photos. Nothing hugely formal, just the ceremony and then some romantic/fun shots. She was quick to reply, easily reachable and spoke to us on the phone beforehand to see what we might have in mind. She arrived on the dot, and within a few minutes, I felt as if I'd known her for years. She got busy taking photos of the details that I wouldn't have thought of, and even helped me finish getting dressed! She was patient, yet assertive, making sure that the family pictures we wanted were taken, but flexible to our needs also re location and style. As for the wedding itself, the highest praise you can give to a photographer is that they were hardly noticed, yet their photos look like they were front and center. Preetika captured the atmosphere and the setting perfectly. When I look at the photos, I can imagine being there all over again. After the ceremony, we wanted to take some fun photos, to capture our personality and also our nationalities (US/UK). We brought along our own props and Preetika knew exactly what I had in my head for the shots, even though I couldn't explain it properly. As for her personality....she's just so friendly, approachable and I genuinely felt as if I'd made a best friend that day who could read my thoughts. Her photos have turned out beautifully (we got them within a week!) and I can't wait to see her future work. Will definitely be using her again - great value for a more than excellent service. Thank you so much Preetika! It sounds cheesy but you really made our day the best it could have possibly been! Shreena (& Krishna!) xxx
So amazing!Reviewed on 9/09/2013 Elizabeth
The photos were my number one priority for my wedding because that is what lasts! From the moment I met preetika I knew I could trust her with this most special day in Caleb's and my life! And the end result proved my gut feeling exactly right! I am absolutely thankful for their amazing work and how helpful they were on this wonderful day! Can't thank you enough preetika!
If you want an amazing photographer, choose Preetika!Reviewed on 7/11/2013 Grace P
Preetika and John exceeded any expectations I could have had about our photos. Their energy the day of the wedding was incredible. They wanted us to get exactly what we wanted for our big day - and we did! We received STUNNING wedding (and engagement!) photos. We now have hundreds of photos to pick from! I'm going to have trouble deciding which ones I want to frame! Preetika stayed with us girls from my make up appointment through the end of the night. And John was able to be with the boys. He even captured an impromptu basketball game the boys played before we walked down the aisle. My husband specifically loved having John with him and the guys while they were getting ready. My mom was speechless when she saw our photos. Every photo she was gasping about how creative and beautiful they were. She said she doesn't know many photographers that would work that hard to get such creative shots. I highly recommend Preetika and John to any bride and groom who want hard working, energetic, service-oriented, fun, and professional photographers for their wedding or engagement session! Thank you Rajgariah Photography!
Rajgariah PhotographyReviewed on 5/17/2013 Katherine W
Preetikah is a friend of mine, so I knew long before becoming engaged that she was a really talented artist (she is an incredible painter, as well as photographer). When it came time to choose a wedding photographer, I knew I wanted her. I couldn't be happier with the pictures. Her style is very active and really brings out the personalities of the people in her photographs. There are a few pictures of my grandparents that were taken during the reception that so perfectly captured them, that everyone in my family has been begging me for copies. Her husband John works with her, and they compliment each other very well. He had so many great insights during our engagement session about how to relax and get comfortable in front of the camera. He really put me at ease. Preetikah and John are true artists, and I'm very lucky to have had my wedding memories captured through their lenses, with their talent and vision.
Amazing Photos and ServiceReviewed on 1/06/2013 Faith F
Preetika and her co-photographer, John, did both our wedding and engagement photos, and we could not be happier. Preetika is particularly good at using light to make beautiful shots, and she has a great eye for composing sweet, interesting shots. She can coach you into some of the more posed shots, but is really good at catching natural-looking moments. At our wedding, I felt like the photos were something I didn't have to worry about at all. Preetika is completely drama-free and not even remotely bossy, which makes a bride feel much more relaxed. I've heard horror stories about wedding photographers who are controlling or grumpy, and our experience was nothing but friendly and joyful. She will take charge and knows what photos need to be done, but she is sensitive to the bride's mood and neuroses on the big day. Of course she was punctual and all those important details, too. She worked well with the other vendors like our wedding planner and church staff, and didn't need us to tell her what to do, pretty much ever. It was sort of like having an additional co-planner making sure everything went smoothly. One thing that made her photos stand out compared to other wedding photos I've seen was that she managed to get photos of me and my husband with pretty much every person at the event. It was amazing how she and John worked the room so unobtrusively, but still got intimate, fun shots of all the guests. It was the perfect balance of standard family/dress/preparation shots and candid party photos. I highly recommend Preetika for wedding or engagement photos, because we had a great experience. Her prices were also very reasonable and she was flexible about changes to the schedule or plans.
Preetika is fantastic!!Reviewed on 1/01/2013 Nicole W
Preetika and her husband John photographed both my engagement session, bridal portraits, and my wedding. Both times they were professional, ready with ideas, eager to make sure I got the shots I wanted, and prompt with results. They take as long as the situation needs to get the perfect picture! They took SO MANY photos at the wedding, and they were all SO GOOD. I was very impressed--great angles, great lighting, great moments. They seem to have an eye for those "perfect" moments that make great photos. I would highly recommend Preetika Rajgariah Photography, not only will you get great photos, but get to work with some wonderful people! Thanks Preetika and John! I plan to have Preetika also take my pregnancy and baby photos!
Exceeded all of our expectations!Reviewed on 12/27/2012 Lauren M
I used Preetika Rajgariah Photography for my engagement photo session. I was blown away by the professionalism, creativity, and quality of service we received. Her husband John accompanied us on our shoot throughout downtown Houston- and we all had a blast. Like most things it took a few shots to get comfortable- but Preetika and John made it really easy. They were both very creative with their suggestions and weren't afraid to give instructions to make the poses more natural. I loved their energy and by the end of the photo session I couldn't wait to see the finished products. Preetika got us our photos in a week- on CD, ready for printing! I was blown away by the turnaround time. The finished product was better than I could have hoped for especially at the very reasonable prices. The pictures looked rich and we could not have been more pleased. I would recommend Preetika Rajgariah to anyone looking for amazing quality photography. I plan on using her services for my bridal portraits and any other photography needs in the future.
