Fine Art Production
was started by Chirali & Amish Thakkar back in 1995 in Baroda – India and then moved to USA in 2001. We are perhaps the first Indian photographers team in USA to start shooting Indian weddings in a more candid style. We both took up wedding photography because we thought it as the best way to experience what we love the most in life and about life and that is exploring new places, meeting new people, making new friends, lots of good food, lots of laughter and conversation. Fine Art Production was the pioneer in going completely Digitally in shooting Indian wedding photography and cinematography.
We both come from Photography backgrounds. Amish learned photography from Chirali’s father, Ramesh Thakkar who is renowned photographer of those beautiful days of film and dark room photography. In early days of learning photography during the engineering college days, Amish got a solid sense of capturing the beautiful moments on his camera. Amish was the only one Photographer who was called to shoot a film in Germany in 1999 from this small town Baroda because of his dedication, art and professionalism and since then he never looked back. He has learned a lot in Advertising Film Industry from his Guru Gopal Shah who is an ace film maker in Bollywood.
While Chirali, learned the art of photography in a very natural way as since her birth as she was grown under the photography world. She was holding her father’s hand standing in dark room while the father will develop pictures using photography chemicals and as the image appears on blank paper, she would wonder how did that happen. That curiosity led her to be a photographer. Chirali is the most vibrant and most demanded photographer and very well-respected name in every family who is ready to have wedding for their loved ones. It is every bride’s dream to have Chirali as her main photographer. With her unique talent of understanding every need of a bride, she makes sure that bride get beautiful memories that she will hold for her rest of her life.
We are managing an enterprise which offers photography and cinematography service all over the world. Currently we are geared up to handle really big weddings which require multiple photographers and cinematographers as well as small intimate affairs which has only a photographers or two.
Currently Fine Art Production has a team of handpicked professional indian wedding photographer and indian wedding cinematographer who comprise the core photography and cinematography teams. Since our inception we have done over 1900 weddings. It's a great achievement for us considering the fact that we have covered weddings from almost every culture of India, almost every community in India and we are fortunate to have mastered the art of multi-cultural weddings.
These weddings also came with their set of learning and unlearning. They have all been an opportunity to learn about different cultures, rituals and food. It has made us culturally more aware and enriched. The small details that we now know which no one or no website can tell you.This institution has also brought so many couples and families of different communities together. It only brings joy to us when we see people of different faith and countries getting married and their families standing by their side all for the sake of their love. These moments are nothing but opportunities thrown at us to learn and accept with an open mind about various communities living in one world.
With weddings came a lot of travelling which gave us a chance to explore many cities not only in India but also many cities out of India. With so much travelling and meeting so many people came interesting stories which has enriched our lives as photographers and people.
It's always a great honour when couples come to us and say that we are their dream wedding photographers or videographers. It's so humbling when we are told that they love our work. It feels like a great responsibility to deliver each time when people tell us Fine Art Production as one of top most, popular, famous, finest and sought after team of indian wedding photographers and cinematographers.
In India, they have, a saying that it’s not the couple but the families who get married. We would like to continue this phrase by saying, - we become narrators of their wedding story for all the times and generations to come.

We wish you and your Company, all the Very Best and a Soaring Success.
Dear Amish and Chirali,
We would like to thank you both and your team for having done a wonderful job of Photography and Cinematography during the reception for our son Vinod Venkatesh and Jennifer Flynn in Orlando at the Rennaissance Hotel on February 23rd.
After having just returned from India the day before, Chirali was up and about helping, organizing and co-ordinating the event, where, how,and which area the pictures were to be taken.
Both of you are very professional at what you do. Your friendly nature made us feel that you are part of our family. Our Extended family also enjoyed having you capture the memories.
The final product is excellent. We are very pleased with your work and your professionalism.
We are glad we picked you from the Desh-Videsh Magazine just after one conversation with Amish. You are the best in the Indian Wedding Industry.
We wish you and your Company, all the Very Best and a Soaring Success.
The entire Venkatesh Family thanks you immensely for a job well done!

Amazing pictures, videos and people!
Chirali and Amish have truly been one of the best people that we worked with during our wedding. Right from the first appointment, they took interest in learning what we wanted and suggested us with the best package that fit our needs and budget. My husband and I are both not into taking pictures as much, but they did an amazing pre-wedding photo shoot for us. They helped us with the location, poses and made the day so much fun for us. On the wedding day, with so much going on, they were around to make sure we are fine, happy, and comfortable all while beautifully capturing the day. The wedding day went by in a blink, but we have relived the day multiple times only because of the videos and pictures that they captured for us so beautifully. They are so creative capturing the couple, their individual personality coupled with their chemistry together and how it all fits with the venue. They even made us sing a Bollywood song and captured the crazy side of both of us. It was a pleasure to not just work with them but also build a long-lasting friendship with both. Both our families were also very happy to communicate and work with them through the wedding days. They genuinely care about the couple, their families, their needs, their stress level and work with you to make your day great, seamless and memorable.Sent on 11/21/2019
It is also very easy to work with them after the wedding to pick up pictures and videos. They work with you even after the wedding to make sure you are happy with the pictures and video edits. Anyone looking to work with them, they are an amazing couple to work with and you will be very happy with the final outcome.
Fine Art Productions's reply:Thank you Avani for your kind words. We truly appreciate it. We were fortunate to be able to capture amazing life long memories for you and your family. We both wish you lots of luck as you are embarked on your new journey.

Great wedding experience
Amish and Chirali were able to accommodate my wife's schedule as well as mine. I was busy with work and my wife was busy with her new job. We were able to meet via face time because we were located in Naples, FL and they were located in NJ and Central Florida. They offered affordable prices for both our wedding cinematography as well as photography. They were very flexible with forms of payments. They worked with us for both our Indian Wedding as well as our reception. Despite things running slightly behind schedule both Amish and Chirali were patient and understanding. They were able to calm us down while making us smile. I am not the most photogenic person. They were able to make me laugh and take great shots. After the wedding when I was finally able to pick up my hard drive and visit their studio, I was able to see how great their work was. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for high quality at reasonable prices.Sent on 03/16/2020
keep up the good work
I have worked with Amish and his crew for a few weddings this year and have not found more professionalism elsewhere. As a decorator, it is imperative that the decor stay untouched and unmoved during the ceremony. I have worked with so many other photographers in the past, but Amish makes himself invisible at the Ceremony. His equipment and crew do not block the view and hence ruin the decor look. If he has to hang from the cieling, to take a good shot, I am sure he won't think twice. And the end result, you can't thank him enough for capturing those moments, which even you were unaware of. He brings out the hidden beauty of every bride, decor, wedding and of course the Groom.
