I am a Delhi based female candid, artistic and documentary style wedding photographer. I am a lawyer turned photographer, having learned the art on my own. I love to shoot weddings for the sheer joy and beauty that surrounds every wedding. I capture weddings in the most authentic documentary style so that the photographs are not just beautiful, stand alone, but also weave a wedding story.
Feminist Photographer: I am a feminist with a camera trying to capture woman in her myriad hues, moods, trials and tribulations. I use my work to fill gender gap in popular culture.
Story Teller: I am a story teller and capture human interest stories through my photos. I love to take portraits, because every individual face has a story and because I love to make people feel beautiful.
Traveller: I travel solo on a budget to various places in India to explore questions of gender and public space, gender, travel, safety, and photo document my experiences. You can follow my solo woman budget travel experiences on Facebook.com/SWBTIndia
Writer: I write about women, gender, patriarchy, love, emotions, sexuality, films, advertising, popular culture and more. I am a Freelance Feature writer for various media houses.
