Documenting a wedding has become a highly competitive venture for creative folks to express the art of raconteury. In the whirlwind of drone shots, bokeh and slow-motions, wedding photographers and videographers attempt to document the magic of the moments when two become one and eternalise the sweet memories with shutter clicks and footages.

In celebration of these creative folks, the Malaysian Indian Wedding Photographers & Videographers (MIWPV) Convention will be hosting an array of events such as Seminars, Gala Dinner, Competition and Awards Ceremony on the 20th July 2019 at The Everly Hotel, Putrajaya. MIWPV Convention aims to power the development of the industry and become the key platform that provides education, information and inspiration for industry professionals.

The first (MIWPV) event was organized in 2015 to gather and cultivate a growing community of Indian wedding photographers and videographers with the aim to address the lack of learning and networking support for industry professionals. Fast forward to 2019, the MIWPV now sees 6 judges hailing from 5 different countries come together under one prestigious platform.
