Wedding and couple photography, especially candid forms of it, are steadily picking steam these days. While a wedding photographer is typically your local guy with strobes and flashes, a bag full of cameras, and a handful of assistants, people have realized that those flashy and glittery photos in the most shimmering dresses posed in the backdrop of a virtual facade of mirrors are no longer cool.

What is considered worthy of keeping as memory these days, however, is a bunch of photos shot well, that not only capture not the event as it happens, but also the way it happens.

We’re bringing you six candid wedding photographers from Delhi who will make sure your wedding pictures are not only nice and pretty, but also interesting, meaningful, and memorable.

Photographs are candid moments, and whether they are portraits, a family shot, or a photo documenting the biggest day of your life, these guys capture it in its spontaneous truth, either through a montage or a photo-book. Their pictures are unique in terms of colours and rustic tones, with an everlasting touch.
