In the Beginning

We met, fell in love and we went to the Himalayas to get married within 2 weeks of knowing each other. What we regret the most however, was not having anyone to take our photos on our wedding day. But thankfully you have the foresight to keep the memories alive though pictures. So tell us about your crazy love story and we will capture each moment that goes into your wedding. Be it a destination wedding, a private ceremony in a heritage property, or a wedding at a private estate, vineyard wedding, beach wedding or a sunset wedding, getting married at home or if you are in India planning a palace wedding, we will travel and capture your wedding and promise to give you memories for a lifetime to cherish. We say this with a lot of conviction which is backed by a photography experience since 2009, spanning almost all across India and weddings in Thailand, Scotland, Dubai, Tanzania, Kenya, Nepal, from starting a company called Phototantra, to be voted as one of the top 5 dream wedding photographers in India by Conde Nast.

Her interest lies in travelling, exploring different cultures and experiencing different cuisines. She is an avid animal lover and is actively involved in many animal rights causes.


Together we create memories

It was love for photography that led to our meeting and love for travel and food made “us” happen. Together, we started a company called Phototantra in 2009 when India was waking up to the idea of a new style of photography genre which we now know as the “candid photography”. We are perhaps the first husband and wife photography team in India. Both of us are self -taught. Our Photography style is spontaneous, unobtrusive, staying in sync with the flow and with the people involved.


We have been very widely written about in various publications. Our photos have been published in many publications including People US edition, The Telegraph, The Hindustan Times, Femina, Harper’s Bazaar, Blitz, The Deccan Herald, Mint, Marie Claire, Jetwings, Timeout Bangalore, Home Trends, Conde Nast Traveller, Huffington Post etc

If you ever spot two people madly running after two kids and are also joined by two crazy labradors and a blind pug who never stops barking, you have most likely spotted us. We are either busy shooting, or travelling or spending time experiencing different culture through food, watching movies (including bad horror movies), spending time with dogs…in short we love everything that life has to offer.
