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.

Truly Amazing Experience!
Fine Art Production deserves 5 stars not just for their work but also for their personalities! Working with Chirali so far has been such a wonderful experience! My Fiance and I had our pre-wedding photo shoot yesterday and I cannot even begin to say how great the experience was! Since we are not used to being photographed on the regular Chirali helped us a lot with positioning us, telling us how to smile and the best way to angle ourselves to make us look great! That really helped with the entire experience and made the photo shoot much more "easier"! We are very excited to see how everything turns out for the day of our wedding and reception!Sent on 06/05/2019

Working with Chirali, Amish and their entire team was an absolute pleasure! During our photoshoots they were constantly helping us pose and making us laugh to help us loosen up and make the entire experience enjoyable! They were very accommodating for any picture requests that we had as per our own vision! They are a very down to earth team and they were easy to work with! They made our entire journey with them a breeze and we are so glad we went with Fine Art Production! Their experience and professionalism definitely shows in their work. Future brides/grooms, if you are looking for a photographer and videographer team to shoot your special day, look no further! It’s truly a sense of comfort knowing that Chirali and Amish become a part of our wedding week and weren’'t just "vendors" doing what they have to do!Sent on 09/13/2019

An Amazing Photographer/Videographer!!
I first heard of Fine Art Production through my google search of combined photography/videography vendors within the Northeast. I had also reached out to a few friends who had gotten married within the past three years and realized they had also used Fine Art Production or had them shortlisted. After reaching out to them about their services, my initial meeting was with Chirali over the phone. We had chatted for over an hour and by the end, it was as if we had known each other forever and catching up on life. My husband and I are from Boston, MA and our wedding was taking place in Boston, we didn’t have many chances of meeting Chirali and Amish in person. Throughout the entire wedding process, they were very accommodating of time with our meetings over the phone after work or on weekends. Whenever we were able to make it down to NJ, Chirali and Amish would be ready to meet with us at their studio even if it was just for a few minutes. In order to capture all of our events, they had worked with us to put together a great package that would highlight all of our major and minor details. Which included the smallest detail shots of my Haldi to the getting ready shots on the morning of the ceremony and the final shots of the reception. Even with all the events, they were able to stay within our budget. Prior to the wedding weekend, we realized we wanted to make a few modifications and they were easily able to include those additional items. During the wedding weekend, it was great to have a four-person team because they were able to capture almost everything from every angle possible. They were very attentive to us and our families and were able to capture moments with all of our extended family members. I don’t know how they were able to handle twenty plus aunties and uncles for group shots, but they were able to capture everyone and consider all the nuances of different people. Our wedding happened to be during the hottest weekend of the Boston summer 2019 and they were able to get all the moments of the bharat flawlessly. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get as many shots outside as we wanted because we were melting all day long, Chirali and Amish still managed to capture some amazing photos around the hotel. Every now and then, they would take some photos on the iPhone and what we saw looked beautiful! It was great that they were able to stick with our timeline and were somehow able to gather tons of people together for photos and making sure everyone was looking where they were supposed to be, all the while making sure nothing took too long. We’re in the thick of wedding season, so we weren’t expecting any material back for at least a month a so. Once we were able to view the first set of online pictures, I got more excited to see everything else that would be included within our hard drive. We have yet to see our video, but I’m sure the wait will be more than worth it! Working with Chirali and Amish has been a complete pleasure and we would highly recommend them for future engaged couples!Sent on 09/04/2019
Fine Art Productions's reply:We are so glad to know about your experience having us to capture your amazing wedding moments. Just the way you have mentioned it is the chemistry between the bride and groom and photographers, that makes this beautiful experience so memorable. We truly appreciated your kind words and looking forward to making more memories in future. Wish you both lots of luck and happiness as you have started 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.
