A Fun Couple Shoot in Goa with Benny & Cathy

Last June I had the pleasure of covering the wedding of Singer Benny Dayal and model-actress Catherine Thangam in Bangalore. Benny Dayal is most known for his famous song Badtameez Dil (from the movie with Ranbir Kapoor & Deepika Padukone), and could have had a ‘star attitude’ if he wanted to. I remember I was pleasantly surprised […]

Destination Wedding in Pattaya, Thailand | Meghna & Gaurav

Some weddings are simply an ongoing party that never stops. This was the case with Meghna and Gaurav’s recent wedding in Pattaya. A non-stop party at the really cool Amari Ocean resort. There were a lot of firsts at this wedding for me. The first time in Pattaya, the first time with my new Fuji […]

Celebrity Wedding Photography – Bangalore

Singer Benny Dayal and model-actress Catherine Thangam’s wedding in Bangalore was possibly the most down to earth celebrity wedding one can imagine. Not that I covered so many celebrity weddings, but we all have our preconceptions, and so did I. However, I must say I was pleasantly surprised to meet Benny and Cathy, and see how chilled […]

Goa Beach Wedding at the Taj Exotica | Dina & Carl

I met Dina and Carl a few months ago when they came to visit and finalise the arrangements for their Goa beach wedding at the Taj Exotica resort in south Goa. I love these weddings in Goa, and the ‘susegad‘ state of mind that is so associated with this state; a relaxed, laid-back attitude towards life […]

Delhi Wedding at The Rits | Suyash & Rachita

My first wedding in Delhi after almost four years was quite a riot. Delhi weddings are usually in the winter, and the city is just too cold for me in January. Call me spoiled, but Delhi winter is too brutal for me so I practically avoided weddings in Delhi for a while. After so many years, it was really […]

Destination Wedding In Kerala at Kumarakom Lake | Sylvie & Aaron

Kumarakom Lake Resort, in the backwater of Kerala, is definitely one of the most gorgeous venues for a destination wedding in Kerala. I have already covered a few weddings in this incredible location, and these have always been super fun, beautiful, and incredibly unique. The lake and the houseboats, the fishermen and the cormorant birds who share the […]

Shooting and editing an Indian Wedding entirely on the iPhone

It has been a dream of mine for a long time, to shoot a complete Indian wedding only on the iPhone. The problem till now was not only the technological limitations of the previous iPhone models, which could be a separate discussion all together, as some of those still remain, but also, and mostly, finding […]

It is now the time for part two, and the finale of the wedding day which started with the ‘Aloha’ Haldi lunch at the ‘Dunes’, the […]

Beautiful resorts nestle on the […]

Beach Wedding in Goa | Destination Wedding Photographer

Being based in Goa it is a bit surprising that I actually do not get to cover a destination wedding in Goa all that often. However, the ones I do get to attend usually turn out to be quite fantastic. So was the case with Vivek and Sarah’s wedding at the Park Hyatt. It was actually two weddings, a […]

Don’t Make These Mistakes When You Hire A Wedding Photographer

Producing a wedding is an expensive thing. Having a budget is a very important aspect for this kind of production, but how do you build your budget? You will spend money on the venue, the decor, the dress, the catering, lights and DJ but non of this will stay. A day after the wedding all […]

Mumbai Wedding Photography | Amira & Robin at Taj Lands End

Amira and Robin’s wedding in Mumbai was celebrated at Taj Lands End in Bandra and was one of the happiest weddings I can remember. Not that weddings are not usually a happy event, but some are just more emotional than others. Maybe because it is so close to home, and maybe because these tow families are […]

Destination Wedding Kenya

Richard and Tuiya’s destination wedding in Kenya is a wedding I will remember forever, for many reasons. For once, after covering so many destination weddings as a photographer, this was the very first wedding I have ever traveled to another country to attend, as a guest. I knew Richard and Tuiya separately before they got married. They […]
