Stories by Joseph Radhik
Remember the dreamy pictures from Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s gorgeous Tuscany wedding? Or more recently, the beautiful images from Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal’s wedding ceremony? Yes, those were captured by the talented guys at Stories By Joseph Radhik. No one does candid quite like these lensmen, and that shows in their photographs. So if you’re looking to get photographs that would conjure up the same emotions of the big day no matter how many times you see them, then these are your guys.
He’s Delhi’s most sought-after wedding photographer—and with good reason. Perfectly set portraits juxtaposed with candid pictures in interesting angles, Karan Sidhu’s work is all encompassing. You will be sure to find some of those piercingly intense shots that make you stop in your tracks and then more still that would warrant a giggle from an onlooker, which is what makes him so popular. Every image comes to life behind the watchful eye of Sidhu.
Sam & Ekta
Every moment they capture seems like straight out of a movie. With beautiful backdrops, perfect settings, interesting silhouettes and clever use of light, these guys don’t just give you photographs; they give you works of art. Remember that black-and-white image of Mohit Marwah and Antara Motiwala? Now imagine every single picture just as beautiful. That’s Sam & Ekta for you.
The Wedding Salad
Another Mumbai-based crowd favourite, the guys behind The Wedding Salad are all about the movement. Beautiful shots of flowers being showered mid-motion, the garland being put around the groom, the father of the bride in the middle of his hook step—these guys know how to capture a moment in a split second. That’s probably why every picture of theirs brings a smile to your face. So if you’re looking for photographers that will be able to capture every single dance move, laugh, hug and tear, we believe you’ve just found them.
This Glasgow-based photographer wasn’t as popular until pictures from Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s beautiful Lake Como wedding sent social media into a tizzy. That image of Deepika with mehendi on her hands and Ranveer by her side is one that perfectly encapsulates Mark Swaroop’s style—fun, real and capturing moments when you least expect them.
House on the Clouds
These Bengaluru-based photographers have a distinct style—one that combines grandeur with an endearing softness. So consider larger-than-life shots of the bride dancing, followed by intimate moments of her with her girlfriends. It’s always the perfect mix. Every picture tells a story and transports you to the day. What else do you need from your photographer?
