I can’t really pinpoint the day I got into photography but growing up in a small, humble city in Southern India, I remember being absolutely spellbound by how my family, neighbours, and the entire community came together during festivals and weddings. Celebrations were a big deal. The energy and excitement, the love, the laughter, the feasts, the emotions, all culminating in one special moment between two people. I wouldn’t trade anything for these cherished memories of mine. They are vivid memories which I hold onto dearly because I don’t have the photos to reflect upon them. So when I got my first job, I bought myself a camera. Soon enough I became ‘that guy’ – my camera always at the ready – eager to capture those moments shared with friends and family. Since then, I have come a long way, I have changed places and jobs and my love for photography continues to evolve – but it is those memories, and my love for celebrations and family gatherings, that have led me to this exciting field of wedding photography.
My approach to wedding photography falls into the journalism side of things, which means I focus more on capturing those candid moments rather than interrupting them. I focus on real memories, the real emotions that tell the story of your big day. I love the pageantry of weddings but it’s those intimate, personal connections that I truly enjoy photographing. In particular, I like to focus on the relationships between family members when they’re at their most genuine – a laugh, a tear, an embrace – and of course the bride and groom in that singular moment where they become united and take that next step in life together. I’ve been doing this for a while now, and if there’s any advice that I can offer you, it’s this;
When it comes time for your big day, keep telling yourself, “I’ll never forget this day” – it ‘ll come in handy later for your anniversary!”
