Vidiya & Rezaul

The lavish Muslim wedding of this Bangladeshi couple, took place at the amazing Leela Palace hotel in Udaipur over three days of great celebration. Vidiya and Rezaul have known each other since Vidiya was a young girl in the Bangladesh capital of Dakha. They have lived in the same country on and off, but have also […]

Wedding Photographer Pattaya 03

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 […]

Benny & Cathy

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 […]

Fun Couple Shoot In Goa

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 Photographer Indian Wedding Photogrpahy009 3

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 […]

Kumarakom Lake Resort Destination Wedding Photography 43

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 […]

Raahil & Pia (Part 2)

Last post was all about the first part of Raahil & Pia’s stunning destination wedding in Goa; the Champaign lunch at the forest, the Teeka and engagement on the beach, and the after party. 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 […]

Destination Wedding Goa Park Hyatt  001 3

Raahil & Pia (Part 1)

The season is back in Goa and the weather is great again. Time for the first destination wedding of the season, and this one is one of those weddings that one posts is not enough to cover. Planning a destination wedding in Goa could go both ways. You might opt for a simple beach party, or […]

Maldives Wedding 20150926 011

Drina & Mat

I’m not really sure if any of you had ever thought of getting married in the Maldives, but the place does make for the perfect destination for a beach wedding. Scattered like gems across the turquoise Indian Ocean, the Maldives’ tiny coral atolls are some of the world’s most romantic destinations. Beautiful resorts nestle on the […]

Sarah & Vivek

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 […]

My Passport Wireless – Western Digital

A little while back I received the new My Passport Wireless – Wi-Fi Mobile Storage from Western Digital to try out. The new device with its built-in SD card slot came at a very good time as I completely retired all my older camera models that used the Compact Flash memory cards and moved to the smaller SD card […]

Mumbai Wedding Photography 50

Amira & Robin

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 […]

Richard & Tuiya

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 […]

Muslim Wedding Kerala 11

Nawas & Fathima

Muslim weddings are not easy to photograph. I can tell you that for sure. I mean, if you are a muslim than this might sounds strange, after all a wedding is a wedding. However, if you are used to all the music, alcohol, and party atmosphere usually associated with Indian weddings than you are up […]

Samode Palace Wedding 07

Rahul & Reema

The 16th century Samode palace lies a little more than an hour drive from the pink city of Jaipur, in the midst of ancient granite rock formation and away from the world we know. Memories belonging to a very distant past are hidden in its maze of bougainvillea covered courtyards and quaint narrow staircases. Lounges adorned […]

Tamil Brahmin Wedding 10 20

Sidarth & Laura

The very first wedding I ever photographed in India was a TamBrahm, or in its full name; a Tamil Brahmin wedding. This was back at the end of 2007 when I started working on my book on Indian weddings. I had no idea what I was going to see. I had no clue the wedding […]

Clayton & Ann

If you are planing a church wedding in Goa there are quite a few places to hold the ceremony. There is a small chapel at the top of a hill which remains locked most of the time. Nevertheless, it is worth coming up here for a spectacular view of the Salcette countryside in general and the town of […]

Tulsi Vivah

Some Indian wedding traditions can be very strange to an outsider. I have been here for a while and have experienced some of them but there is always a new experience. I have heard of the marriage of the Tulsi plant in Goa but this is the first time I actually made the time to […]

Allie & Floris

Udaipur is quite possibly the most romantic city in India. I come to the ‘Venice of Rajasthan’ a few times a year and it always manages to surprise me and look different than it did before. Different but always stunning. There is something about this city on the lake that is just so perfect as a destination […]
