How did you get into this field?

I always wanted to do something different and wanted to pursue a career in a distinct field. I was inclined towards this field, which is why I did my graduation in Photography and then took it further.

Tell us about your primary style?

I absolutely enjoy design and wedding candid photography.

What is that one thing you are tired of hearing?

This is a generalized answer that any photographer will give you. The usual dialogue – “Aye babu, come take one photo.”

What do you particularly like about photographing weddings?

Weddings have a lot of emotions connected to them and the best part is that they are intense and real, resulting in fantastic outputs.

What is your favorite part of the wedding?

The actual muhurat time is the best time to get amazing photographs. Once the muhurat time passes, there are mixed emotions all around. Some are relieved that the ceremony is done, and they can proceed for the food. The bride’s family is teary eyed as they know she is someone else’s now, while the friends are busy laughing and enjoying the moments – there are expressions and shots to capture, in abundance.

Your favourite equipment?

I use Nikon’s equipment but Leica Cameras are my favorite.

What advice would you give to couples looking for a wedding photographer?

I would say, plan – have a couple of meetings – give us a clear picture of what you want, and let us know if you do not like the picture. Get into a comfort zone, communicate and we will be able to give you the best pictures ever.

If there was one place in the world you would love to capture a wedding where would it be and why?

Santorini – it is the perfect location for taking a picture at any time. The lighting, the sea, the bright white paint on the houses – they just turn out to be magical. Bali would be second on the list.

What is the best and worst moment you have had as a wedding photographer?

These best are too many to mention, the worst was when an elderly person passed away in the wedding and they had to postpone all the festivities to a different time.
