Together Forever!

“I can’t call myself a candid wedding photographer – I’m just a wedding photographer!”

Haldi !!!!

I started shooting weddings because this is how I believe weddings need to be shot – natural, elegant and non-intrusive.

Cheers to a New Beginning!!

I have shot weddings and events in 7 countries – from Bali to Italy – but I don’t think any other place gives you the kind of variety you get in India!

My favourite wedding destinations in India and abroad are Goa and Italy – it gives me a great excuse to plan a short holiday after the wedding!

Beautiful Bride!!!

Most brides and grooms don’t have experience being photographed, so my job is to be a friend.. make them comfortable and make sure they’re not feeling conscious or nervous… The rest takes care of itself!

Mehndi, Love & Blush!

We shot the wedding Anika Dhawan Gupta, the founder of Rani Pink. She was the sweetest, happiest bride and being a fellow creative from the wedding industry, she understood the space and time we require to do a good job…

Wedding Rituals

I saw a big bowl of laddoos and quickly popped one in my mouth only to realize that they were not laddoos but turmeric rice balls which weren’t meant to be eaten!

Always and Forever!

It tasted horrible and I spat it out right away – but it was the most embarrassed I’ve ever felt!

Love is in The Air!

It’s always tricky, especially for wedding industry professionals who have no social life for a good 4-5 months at a stretch every year!
