I am a cinematographer and photographer based out of Pune, India.
I have been taking up candid wedding photography assignments for the past few years. I work as a photographer at weddings capturing the bride, the groom and their close ones in all their candid moments. I cover the wedding in a photo-journalistic way and do my best in narrating the wedding story through aesthetic and artistic photographs.
