Say hi to team MGS Wedding Cinematography from Kashmir.
Tell us about yourself and your team members
My name is Sajjad Shah. I am basically from Kashmir but from the past 20 years, I am working in Mumbai/Delhi in Film & Television as a cinematographer. I have done almost 15 Bollywood/Hollywood movies as Steadicam Operator and also I am Director of Photography of India’s Most Watched crime based serial Savdhaan India.
I was with Zee Tele Films for 5 years as a senior camera person and for 10 years I was a full-time employee with Times Now News Channel as Senior Cameraperson. I am also camera person in MTV’s most-watched show Roadies, Splitsvilla. Recently, I have shot television commercial for Red Tape Shoes.
Our company’s name is Lens King Media Guide Pvt Ltd & MG’s Wedding Cinematography is the sister company. For Kashmir, I have a dedicated team for filming weddings. All my team members are also from film & television. So our concept is totally different for making wedding films in the valley.

What do you like about your job
Mostly I like the camera part but overall I like pre-production.
What’s your favorite moment from the wedding that you like to capture
When brides offer Nimaz & recite Quran and also Nikah.
What annoys you the most while capturing pictures in weddings
When people spoil our frame with their smartphone photography/videography.
You are part of every wedding closely, what needs to be changed in Kashmiri weddings
The only thing needs to be changed is that people ignore photography and cinematography. People here spend lots of money on wazwan & decoration, but that’s only for 2 or 3 days. Wedding films & photos are the only things that will preserve all the efforts that you put in your weddings….so please don’t ignore it.
Who are your favorite photographers
My all-time favorite photographers are Mr. Rohit Singh & Barlina Khan (Both of them are my team members).
