Preparing for your wedding is a huge time commitment. My couples typically spend hours working out the details of their ceremony and reception.
Luckily, they don't have to take on all of that responsibility alone. I can help make the process much easier and more enjoyable

I'LL BE YOUR PERSONAL GUIDE
By having years of experience capturing weddings, I can anticipate what will happen next, know the flow of the day, and can be left to get on with my job in full confidence knowing I will be where you want me to be.
Your wedding day isn’t a photo shoot, it is a dynamic event with only ONE chance to capture those moments.
THROUGH EVERY MOMENT
Whether it is a “first look,” or the moment as you enter the ceremony aisle, that split second of pure emotion and love as your partner sees you in your stunning dress, drifting towards them, is beyond priceless.
Can you envision yourself in these wedding photos, and feel happy with them?
AND EVERY EMOTION
Have questions? Want to book a session? Interested in having me photograph your wedding? Just wanna say hello? Let's chat!
I am so excited about what you both are planning and just didn't want to miss on the opportunity to connect
But before we even get into the details of the day and what I can offer, I want to hear the excitement in your voices about the fun and exciting story about how you two met and who proposed to whom!
That way I know whats special to you both and that way I can best capture the day. Only then can I provide my services to the best of my ability!
Step 1 of 6
You and I share a love of photography, we have a love for adventure, love to laugh and have a great time! Great!! Lets Make This Official! I will send you over a copy of the agreement for you and your partner to sign and once the agreement is signed and delivered, the non-refundable $1000 retainer is due.
Crack open the champagne(or drink of choice), kick up your feet and relax. From here on out, I've got you! Other than saying yes to your partner, you've made the best decision so far for your wedding day... by choosing...ME!!!
Think of me as your personal YODA
Step 2 of 6
Most of my clients lead busy, hectic lives and want to spend the little spare time they have between work and wedding planning doing the things that they love with the people they love.
As a result, I will send over a detailed questionnaire/checklists to ensure everything flows smoothly! Some of these checklists include
1. What to wear for your Engagement Session
2. Should we do a First Look?
3. What to expect on the Wedding Day
Leave the stresses of the planning to me! Once we get over this minor hurdle, photography is so easy. No need to worry about how to stand in front of the camera, no posing experience needed! PHEW!!
Step 3 of 6
There isn't anyone that you'll be with more on your wedding day (other than your partner, of course). And that is why it's so important that we are the perfect fit for each other!
The primary benefits of doing an engagement session is that it will help you get used to being in front of the camera before your wedding. Remembering back what you did at your engagement session will help make your portrait time more efficient on the big day and allow you to get even more photos you want during that time.
Practice makes perfect!
Step 4 of 6
Your love and joy is everything! Our most important piece of advice we can give you is to - Enjoy Your Day! Allow your wedding day to simply be what it is.
Your day is going to be absolutely amazing and it will also feel like it’s flying by. I love arriving earlier than our scheduled start time so that I can scope out your venue, have a chance to meet your family & bridesmaids and of course give you a hug!
I'll be there to photograph details throughout your wedding day, capturing the raw emotions, and documenting the events as they naturally unfold. And everything will be amazing, incredible, gorgeous, and fun. That's my promise to you.
Step 5 of 6
CONGRATULATIONS! You're newlyweds!! YOU MADE IT!
I’ve got photos to prove it. Expect your photos within 4-6 weeks of your wedding. You’ll receive a link to a password-protected online gallery that houses all of your photos, and you can share it with whomever you’d like.
Within a few weeks of receiving your finished photos, you’ll get a first draft of your album from me (if you purchased one). I pick all the photos and do the design for the first draft, and once it’s submitted to you for revisions, you get to change anything you want about it.
Once I have your revisions, I’ll create another draft and send it to you. We’ll repeat that process until it’s exactly what you want, and then I’ll order it. Albums arrive 3-6 weeks after being ordered.

We were looking for someone able to capture our wedding ceremony as it unfolded and that’s when I found Kartheek over the web.
He was quick to respond, comprehended my demands and also explained to me the variations he could create. Apart from his amazing photography skills, Kartheek possessed great virtues such as punctuality, modesty and an honest work ethic. The pictures taken by him are amazing and capture the memories that will last for an infinite period of time. Kartheek gifted us with those precious moments which we will always rejoice.
I have recommended my friends who were looking for a photographer and they have also had similar positive experiences with him. I again thank him for the service he provided and looking forward to having him on our future special occasions as well.

Kartheek was amazing. He and his assistant where my photographers for my wedding. They captured both my husband and I getting ready at two different locations. From our first encounter I felt very comfortable. Kartheek was on time to every appointment answered all my questions and I had many.
He was very professional and made a stressful day fun. He was very organized and worked with me and my husband on a time line for the wedding day. The time line was flexible and designed so that we could enjoy our guest. Kartheek will be my photographer for all my special events.

Professional, outgoing, extremely talented, patient, corky in a good way, haha are all words I would describe Kartheek to be while photographing our wedding. He does absolutely wonderful work. We get so many compliments about our photos still, 6 months later. Easy to work with. No complaints about whatever request you have.
We wanted all natural looking photos, in the moment and he captured that plus more. He works with you with just about anything. He really takes pride in is work and it shows. If you want photos that your going to look at in 25 years or more, hoping, you want to be able say I am beyond happy with our choice. It's simple. Kartheek is your photographer, no doubt.

First off let me say this, Kartheek is nothing short but amazing! I have not one single bad thing to say about him whatsoever! I, without a doubt, will hire Kartheek again if we ever need a photographer for anything!
I’ve worked with other photographers before in other weddings and engagement shoots and to to put this mildly, none of them hold a candle to Kartheek. He made our day a blast! From our engagement shoot to our wedding, he did whatever we asked and went with the flow. Kartheek made our engagement shoot fun and we laughed the whole time.
Our pictures were amazing and we had some hysterical ones as well. Which of course makes for much better stories down the road! Some of them really made us LOL at our faces! He really got our real reactions which in turn makes for some priceless photos!

We would highly recommend Kartheek Photo! Kartheek was professional, flexible, and a pleasure to work with. He went out of his way to visit the location of our formal portraits with us ahead of time. Using our style and interests, and his professional expertise, he was able to capture exceptional photos at our locations.
He was very organized and prepared with the questions he asked before our event, and was completely willing to work with the timeline we had planned for our wedding. We were very happy with the number and quality of the photos taken. Overall, we were very happy with our choice and would recommend him to other couples.
