Are you following these super cool female photographers in the city? If you are not, then go right away and do so! From portraits to wedding scenes, these photographers will give you #InstagramGoals.

Aishwarya Ashok - Portraits

From portrait pictures to capturing the nature, this photographer shoots only in natural light, which retains the rustic look in her pictures as against digital flash photography. The colours in her photographs are subtle and she plays around with lights and shadows to create a vintage tone. The flavour of the city reflects in her pictures which are shot in the streets of Chennai. She does events, wedding photography, and fashion photography too, but her portraits are our fave!

Vidhyalakshmi Vijaykumar - Travel

Influenced by other art forms, especially music, Vidhya Vijay shoots elegant pictures you will love scrolling through on Instagram. Most pictures are photojournalistic, and you can see the attention to detail. She doesn't believe in retouching pictures and likes to keep things simple. We love her minimalism! It could just be a subject sitting in a backyard, but the photos look dreamy. The locations she chooses for her pictures are obscure and rustic. She is an illustrator too, so don’t forget to check out her unique illustrations! Look out for her travel series from her Himachal Pradesh and Europe trip. Her product pictures and portraits are equally eye-catchy.
