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.

Although I was only there for a Passport photo, I was taken care of like I was a VIP. Chirali knows her stuff and is very kind! Based on my experience I can see that they would be an excellent choice for bigger events like weddings. - BillSent on 09/27/2020

Chirali and Amish were the best photographers/videographers we could have hired!! They came highly recommended after they photographed my cousin's wedding in Florida. We had booked Fine Art Productions back in January before Covid. Our wedding plans changed significantly and Chirali was accommodating throughout. We were quickly able to book our engagement photoshoot and they gave us our pictures right away so we could use them during our wedding day. On the day of the wedding, Chirali and Amish were so patient working with us, even though my husband and I were so tired of taking pictures LOL. They were very professional throughout the entire day, wearing masks, keeping their distance, and setting up a live stream for our guests. Regardless of Covid, it turned out to be a beautiful day, and I can't wait to see the pictures. I highly recommend Fine Art Productions if you want an amazing team and even amazing pictures for your wedding day!!Sent on 10/12/2020
Fine Art Productions's reply:Thank you Pereen for your compliments!! We truly appreciate it. It was really an amazing experience for us as well to capture beautiful moments of your wedding with Craig. You both have an awesome personality that made us more creative to capture some of the best wedding moments. Looking forward to seeing you both very soon. Wishing you good luck for your newly married life.
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.
