These two. The way they look at each other. That smile. They define 'goals'. So glad to be here in Hyderabad and to be invited to make these images for them.

Priyanka and Udaivilas.

No, this is not an advertisement for the awesome Udaivilas hotel but we can't help it if we shoot so many weddings there. :D After a while, the biggest challenge is to create a new shot every time we visit!

Love and a lotus.
Parita and Deepanshu.
Udaivilas, Udaipur.
Shot by Joe.

My obsession with this gorgeous water structure at the Udaivilas is well documented - you might have seen enough of this! But in more than twenty times of visiting this awesome hotel, I never made this image come to life. And then came along this totally rad couple who were up for ruining their outfits for the sake of a...

Down on one knee, and grins all around. :D

Shooting this epic engagement event tonight reminds me of Upsi & Charan's ring ceremony all of 5 years ago! So excited to be here with this crowd who now feel a bit like family. :D

It's easy to focus on the big moments at a wedding, and lose sight of the tiny moments. The kind of moments that the bride and groom will look at in your images and smile to themselves. As I prepare for my talk at the SILK Inspire 2016, I am looking back at all the many ways that a wedding photographer can make their...

Jaisalmer, 2016
Most of our aims here at our little Stories office is to give life to our inspirations in our work. The photo above is a direct result of drooling over George Steinmetz's (Natgeo) work for the past many years. His famous camel shadows image is what inspired us to make this portrait of Abhaya & Uday in the deserts of Rajasthan. A...

Kashmir, 2016

One of the joys of photography is nailing a photo in camera - not post production, no adding or deleting elements, just pure joy! This image was made with a Sony A7-2 and a Zeiss Batis 18mm, and this was the 3rd attempt at nailing the snow just right. Luckily for me, the snow on the lens melted and created this wonderful bokeh. :D

A tiny moment shot by Shivali Chopra.

Ephemeral moments, real emotions, and the tinest of gestures are what make photography so interesting. This little connection between a bride and her cousin while her mom watches on (being supported by someone else out of frame). There's so much here, and so little too. :)
Her pillar of strength.

This third rock from the sun, this place we call home and this place we know so little about. Earth, you never cease to surprise me with all your beauty and to think that this journey to discovery is just starting.

This is the Le Morne peak on the south western coast of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. Just off the to the bottom right of...
