SALONI + VANBURN | Hindu wedding in Golden Swan Country Club, Thane

SALONI + VANBURN | Hindu wedding in Golden Swan Country Club, Thane

Saloni and Vanburn are two of the most interesting people you’ll ever get to meet. It isn’t about how we got along or how well they dressed up for the wedding day or how well planned their wedding was. It is just who they are — not influenced by the times, unique, and with an incredibly spontaneous sense of humor.

SINDHU + NISHESH | Destination engagement in GRT Nature Trails, Yercaud

SINDHU + NISHESH | Destination engagement in GRT Nature Trails, Yercaud

South Indian engagements aren't big on song and dance, and are mostly a formal affair. When Sindhu spoke to me a week before the event, she asked me if I could shoot her cocktail party as well, which was to happen the evening before the engagement. That was when I knew this engagement wasn't going to go the mundane way. Boy, was I right!

SHIRA + ANOOP | Destination wedding in Blue Bay Resort, Chennai

In the winter of 2015 -- or should we say during the peak of Chennai's unique monsoon cycle -- the city faced its most serious catastrophe ever. But for wedding photographers in Chennai, it was business as usual. For a beach wedding, this was different. Arabian huts in the parking lot had replaced the far more attractive beach stage overlooking the horizon, considering the devastation the floods had caused.

DANIEL + DINA | Indo-German cross-cultural Christian wedding in Chennai

DANIEL + DINA | Indo-German cross-cultural Christian wedding in Chennai

A guy and a girl meet at a concert, chat up for a few minutes and go their own ways. And by own ways, I mean two different countries in two different continents, separated by thousands of miles. As fate would have it, they remember each other's names. So, when they meet again, over social media several months later, no introductions needed to be made.

The spotlight on the groom, for a change!

In a lot of ways, making portraits of the groom at Indian weddings is more challenging if you ask me. The colors on his person are subtle or non-existent if he is wearing a formal suit. There are fewer flattering poses to play with.

That light!

I am obsessed about light. Like every professional photographer who loves the art of making an image — one who is not just clicking away and hoping to snag keepers. But there's something you must know about obsessions.
