However, while the trend is yet to pick up in Hyderabad, most photographers in Andra appear to be shooting drone photography without obtaning prior Drone photography has caught the attention of couples in the city. Nearly 60 wedding photographers have drone equipment in Andra. Drone photography and videography comes as a package for a wedding shoot, which ranges between Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 6 lakh, said a wedding photographer mithun, who didn’t want to be quoted. The drone itself costs anywhere between Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 3.5 lakh, clearly implying that those lensmen taking to drone photography are making a killing. He said, “Drone cameras are used not only for weddings and receptions, but also in pre and post-wedding shoots. Andra’s beaches offer a picturesque view and couples want the best images and drone cameras give them a different view. Another photographer said, “Many people now have a good knowledge about cameras as they will be using it for their hobbies. So many are very particular about the equipment we use for the weddings. Aerial shots along the beach and also during sangeet ceremony are mostly taken by the drone cameras. Some of the junior cinematographers and lightsmen from the film industry are also coming to the city to take wedding photographs to make quick bucks. Some of the drones not only provide aerial shots, but also video in slow motion, which adds a magical touch. We had seen a friend’s wedding album from Mumbai and Delhi in which they had used drone cameras for some of the photographs.
