THE POWER OF

HUMAN CONNECTION

To get amazing, natural-looking images, you need chemistry.


And not just chemistry with each other, but with your photographer too.


This chemistry leads to comfortability and connection.
Which, ultimately, translates into an experience that makes you feel good.


And when you feel good, you'll naturally look good too.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE WAYS WE'LL BUILD A CONNECTION

THAT WILL NATURALLY MAKE YOU FEEL AND LOOK GOOD.


THE POWER OF

TWO

When you hire us, you get two equally strong lead photographers who work every wedding together. Communicate with each other well. And capture moments from different artistic perspectives.


Throughout the wedding day, we each take turns taking the lead based on our strengths. And we seamlessly switch between setting up the vision and executing it.


THE POWER OF

DIRECTION

Having been together since 2006, we intuitively know how a couple looks best together on camera -- which we'll personally demonstrate with various poses so you'll both look and feel natural.


And because feeling comfortable in front of a camera isn't something that instantaneously happens, we'll include a "warm-up" period in your timeline. This way, we'll have the time to direct you to look your best - resulting in the intimate photos you want.


THE POWER OF

PERCEPTION

Photographing weddings together since 2012, we've developed a great eye for detecting the small and subtle moments, as well as the big and influential ones, you'll want to remember.


By paying attention to the details like your body language and height difference, we create flattering angles. And by being mindful of our surroundings, we anticipate and capture the expected and unexpected moments.


THE POWER OF

CREATIVITY

Ishan is amazing at finding good landscapes and creating romantic silhouettes. While Preeti is great at finding interesting light and backgrounds and playing with shadows and textures.


We love photographing weddings because of the powerful notion, emotions, and feelings each presents. And we love that each wedding challenges us to stretch our creative muscles in order to create something unique and reflective of you.


THE POWER OF

SERVICE

We're more than just photographers. Or bystanders with cameras who take beautiful pictures. We're problem solvers.


However we can help, be it attire suggestions, location scouting, color coordination, timeline assistance, vendor recommendations - or stepping in and making difficult decisions when your family is at odds - we're here to help you enjoy your day as much as possible.


THE POWER OF

PASSION

After each wedding, we look for ways to improve our process and approach. Not because we're striving for perfection. But because we're serious about providing you with the best possible experience.


We love what we do with a passion. Other than scouring coffee shops for the perfect cup of coffee, embracing nature, or exploring places seldom traveled, we use photography as inspiration. To document our daily lives, the beautiful places we’ve traveled to, and the experiences we’ve been fortunate to have.



They really took time to find out who we were and what made our relationship special. And when it came time for the big day we were all so comfortable together it all felt natural and easy. AND OMG THE PICTURES!

MORE ABOUT US

AND THE ROLES WE PLAY ON YOUR WEDDING DAY


ISHAN

Long story short, Preeti introduced me to photography back in our college days. She was pursuing a degree in fine arts and would take pictures of me on my motorcycle. This was both as a means to hone her skills and so that I could improve my riding technique.


Fast forward to today, I combine what Preeti taught me with my own technical skills to create a cohesive set of images for you and your family to enjoy.


When I'm not at a wedding or editing at my computer, I'm usually in the garage working on my bikes. Hitting the open road or a closed track with one.


PREETI

The person you'll talk to first is Ishan. But behind the scenes, you'll find me - working on your timeline. Or using my design degree from the Pratt Institute, my experience as a former Art Director, and my family’s background in printing to good use by helping you design a beautiful wedding album.


In addition to the art I see through my lens, I love to create art in other forms. Such as digital art - shaping a brand’s visual experience. And dabbing in the world of marketing and advertising design.


When I don't have a camera or computer mouse in my hand, you’ll find me with Ishan - sampling new foods and cultures. Or living life to the fullest skydiving, glacier hiking, or white water rafting.
