The Story So Far

Story behind Saycheeze

I ran a laundry business in Juhu. I had no idea about photography till then. This is before marriage. My wife’s neighbor was the Senior Vice President at Kodak. Since I was getting married soon asked him if he could help me get a job at Kodak.


The neighbour gave me his camera Olympus OM20, and told me instead of doing a job I should start my own Kodak Photo Studio. So in 1998 I shifted my laundry to another location and started Saycheeze in Juhu. That was the start of the journey. Mainly passport size photos used to sell in those days quite well.


One Year Later I got an offer for shooting my first wedding from one of my friends who was Assistant CFO for some events company. I suggested them to hire some professional photographer too. And I also shot the wedding. It was the Catholic Wedding. And as per the script given I had taken the requested photographs.


I got my first break in the 3rd wedding I shot After that there was no looking back. Used to shoot 100s of weddings in a session. And the journey of Saycheeze as a wedding photography studio started. And is still running to date.


Destination Weddings, Candid Photography, Drone Shooting, Pre and Post Wedding Photography is the trend today. And Saycheeze is one of the best Wedding Photography studios in Mumbai with a highly experienced team of 8 to 10 photographers. Today each marriage is covered by a whole team of 6 to 8 photographers. Destination Weddings in India and International Locations are now a common trend.
