Why candid wedding photography?
It all started around 2009 when I came to Delhi and met another legend in this industry… around 2009 was just a beginning of professional candid photography in India.
Honestly, I kept growing with the growing trend of candid wedding photography and really enjoyed shooting many weddings alone.
How does your expertise in food and architecture photography contribute towards wedding photography? What do you enjoy more?
I never called myself a wedding photographer. It’s all about photography, and getting the right techniques done. I do a lot of food and architecture, and the techniques of commercial photography always helped me in covering weddings too!
Getting the right light, and working on a composition has helped me in capturing weddings from a different angle!
As a wedding photographer, what do you focus more on – emotions or rituals?
I have a big team who can focus on the rituals. But I’m always shooting during rituals too, and I focus on capturing the most beautiful emotions.
What do you love capturing more – preweddings or weddings?
I seriously love both!
