Pranesh Padmanabhan

When Pranesh is not busy managing his travel-themed cafe, he’s behind the lens weaving in and out of wedding crowds. His candid portraits almost have a dream-like quality to them. The secret to his snaps might be the attention he pays to post-processing. A rare photographer who always keeps an eye out for his “customer happiness” quotient, it's no surprise he’s one of the city’s favourites.

Gayatri Nair

A photographer who sees weddings as a celebration of life, tradition and family, Gayatri took up wedding photography after corporate stints in Singapore and New York. Be it a tearful Marwadi bidaai, a rollicking Punjabi sangeet or a lavish Reddy wedding, she’s seen it all and captured it beautifully. She treats each wedding — its aesthetics, struggles, wants and desires as unique. So, if you’re someone who wants something off the beaten track, and not just duplicate what you saw on Instagram, you know who to get in touch with.

Price: INR 70,000 upwards

Vinay Aravind

After having spent close to seven years in the world of corporate law, Vinay stumbled into the world of wedding photography when photos he’d taken at a friend’s wedding turned out really well and landed him his first gig. His knack for capturing spontaneity, especially when it comes to emotions and expressions sets him apart from others.  Added to this is the fact that Vinay is a one-man army and proud of it! Having travelled across cities, states and countries to capture weddings, he loves the adventure of immersing himself in cross-cultural wedding photography.

Alpheus Danson

Alpheus, a self-proclaimed introvert, found wedding photography to be the most meaningful and fulfilling way to connect with people. He is particularly good at exploring the many textures of human emotion. His photographs are his way of proving that even the ordinary can become extraordinary and wedding chaos can be translated to serenity. His captures fuse the real and the mystical well in their visual narratives. What he also loves capturing are weddings that are intimate, especially ones that don’t follow the usual patterns of a tradition-driven marriage.

Price: INR 80,000 upwards

Be it in the middle of serene backwaters, under a dark, cloudy sky, a thick canopy of trees or as balloons fly high  — Amar Ramesh sure has a flair for visual drama.  Having left a career in IT long behind, Amar has been living his dream of capturing the timeless and doing a stellar job with that. Amar (and his ever-growing team) travel across states to help you preserve some of the best moments of your life with unparalleled images.
