Wedding photography that prioritizes empathy, kindness, and your comfort.
Based out of Leesburg, Virginia, we serve Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia and destination weddings. We specialize in creating authentic imagery using the empathy of a registered nurse and the skill of an expert photographer. Though many of our couples are South Asian (Indian, Pakistani, Bengali, Nepali or Sri Lankan), we are confident that our skills and professionalism are the tools that would allow us to create wedding photography and cinematography for any wedding with ease.
When people ask me what I do for a living I tell them that I’m a registered nurse and I’m a wedding photographer. Then they usually say something along the lines of “wow, those are two totally different professions.” and my response to that is that they’re actually quite similar. As an RN in the emergency room, I had to be ready to anticipate the needs of my patient, be empathetic and lastly give comfort. Now step outside of the ER and into a wedding and there’s not a single bride or groom that doesn’t want those same characteristics in their photographer.
