The Family That Dances Together – Vishal weds Nikita

  Trust me when I say this – this was the craziest, whackiest and the most fun filled wedding I have shot so far ! The mammoth Ramoji Film city is intimidating to say the least and coupled with the infectious energy of the two families who just would’nt step off the pedal, this was […]

Chunnu da Byah – Shridhar weds Smriti

Some weddings are so much fun that you’d wish they wouldn’t end !!! I had the pleasure of doing a pre wedding shoot with Shridhar and Smriti and I should have guessed by their easy going attitude but NOTHING could have prepared me for the amazing ambience I was going to be a part of […]

Bride To Be

In all my experiences of shooting weddings I have seen some of the most crazy and heartwarming moments take place BEFORE the wedding ceremonies begin. For the bride, the MAKE-UP professional suddenly becomes ‘THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN HER LIFE FOR THAT MOMENT’, almost as if the proceedings of the entire day’s events rest solely […]

The Ladakh Rendezvous

The mountains have a way of calling me The rugged terrain The gurgling sound of the waterfall The sometimes lush meadows The now tiny streams which lead you home Every moment spent in the mountains Is like connecting lines from star to star in the night sky Not forgetting the many , out of the […]

Lahabari Durgotsav

They say great opportunities are usually a result of happy coincidences and happy coincidences they were that led to us being at the famed Laha bari Durga Puja on Maha Ashtami morning. Notwithstanding the fact that it was a long cherished dream of mine to just be part of a traditional Bengali Rajbari Puja celebrations, […]

Jama Masjid: Human Interface of Faith

There has to be something about the Jama Masjid…that 4 visits to Old Delhi on separate days for a Photography Project cum Workshop traversing through Chandni Chowk, Kinari Bazar, Parathe Wali Gali and the like brought me to Jama Masjid on each occasion. From the morning prayers, to the evening revelry, from breaking the Iftaar […]

Retro Calcutta

North Calcutta and there in there about has a charm of its own….its like the bustling city has come to a standstill…one is likely to bump into one character or the other in the narrow by lanes long forgotten…the Bagaan Baaris, a testimony to the opulence once enjoyed, the colour of vermillion struggling to keep […]
