サリーを着てメイクをしてスタジオで撮影するのは、想像以上に楽しい経験でした。スタジオは比較的安心なエリアにあり、オーナー女性もカメラマンもとても良い人です。サリーもいろんな地域、種類のものから選べます。日本のお客さん、各国駐在員ご家族の利用がかなり多いと聞きました。インドの記念にオススメします!
This was such a fun experience! I really enjoyed the whole process, choosing a saree, having my hair and makeup done, struggling with different poses and smiling... and conversation!
If you are visiting Chennai alone or with a group, I highly recommend it.

A few friends of mine from Europe visited me. They were here in India on a history tour.

They got so enamoured with our culture and tradition that they wanted to have the feel of wearing our Indian clothing in the right way. Since I wanted them to have a great feel and experience of the whole idea, I started doing some homework and found out that " ETHNIC PHOTOGRAPHY " offered something equivalent to what they wanted.

I called them and found out that they somewhat matched to what I expected.

So off went Mark, George, Elza, Belinda and Monica to Ethnic Photography.

They called me the next day and thanked me profusely for making the visit to " Ethnic Photography " as the highlight of their Indian Trip. They sent me via email the pictures they had taken. They were mindblowing!

I'm so happy that I sent them to the right place. I would blindly recommend anyone to try out Ethnic Photography without a second thought.

Do you want to take some lovely pictures to remember your vacation? Ethnic photography is the place to be. With respect to traditions Sangeetha will wrap you up in gorgeous sarees and make you feel like a queen. She also expands her services to cutural lessons which are so far from anything touristy and fake you might have suspected. A great experience that will make your visit worthwhile and give you a much more personal insight into Tamil practices and traditions. Keep up the good work!

It was amazing experience getting a ethnic dress up and photo shoot done at ethnic photography.
I found about this through TripAdvisor. it is categorized under shopping incorrectly.
anyway, i filled up online form and i received a prompt reply from sangeetha. it is better to book in advance, though i made my appt around 3 weeks prior.
it took me around 25 mins to go to this place from T nagar. studio is on level 2 right above the bank. there is no board anywhere, just take the stairs up and you will reach the studio.
sangeetha made sure, she had selected clothes before hand, for me and my husband. the make up was not very flashy and indeed it gave a very ethnic look.
photographer prakash seems knowledgable, and both of them conducted the session professionally yet, we thoroughly enjoyed it.
they sent the link of photos by email and delivered the copies to out hotel.
good work, prakash & sangeetha.
thank you for plenty of tips on shopping.

Excellent Customer Service from Sangeetha and Karthik. Booked 3 months earlier for the photoshoot session but did not reconfirm until the actual day. They were polite and kind enough to arrange for a session. Everything was very professionally done.

If you think playing dress-up is for kids only, please reconsider! Treat yourself to a unique souvenir - let Sangeetha & team bring out the best in you!

This is a unique experience for any visitor to Chennai to be dressed from head to toe in true ethnic Indian wear. I've worn a sari and flowers in my hair many times before, but Sangeetha takes you back in time and helps you understand the.clothing, how they are tied, for which function this may be worn. The accessories, makeup and setting for the shoot are all in synch. Plus the photography team help you to relax and model in a fun way, producing fantastic photos. When i changed my profile photo on facebook, the comments and likes say it all....my most popular photo to date!! Definitely an experience for anyone to step into the ancient world of Indian dress.

I had a wonderful time wearing saris and posing for pictures with lamps and kollams(floor decorations). I recommend Ethnic Photography to anyone looking to experience the South Indian culture the fun way and recording it by clicking pictures.
