Phenomenal experience all around! Varun photographed our 4-day wedding and did an excellent job. He was prompt, courteous, easy to work with, and very flexible. He had to stay a little longer at our events and did so without hesitation. He threw in some extra time and edits and really made my wife and I feel like we were working with a trusted friend. The photos came out wonderfully. Editing was top notch and his camera and lighting are both excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend Varun to my friends and family. Thanks again, Varun!!

Let me highlight on all the major qualities. 1) Work Quality- Professional grade camera's and picture/photo quality is great. 2) Professionalism and responsiveness- He is friendly, good to talk to, decent, respects your time and opinions and doesn't makes you feel like you are running on the clock. Gives inputs with his ideas. 3) Punctuality- On time and well organized, well dressed. If you are looking for a good photographer who is easy to work with and who would like to create memories of your special events, Varun is your go-to guy. Enjoyed working with him.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    It is NOT about how much my work is worth to you... it is about how much is your big day WORTH TO YOU?! Just like everything in this world, you get what you pay for. Photography industry is no exception to that rule. Do not skimp on finding the cheapest photographer as they will not respect their own work as much as they should. Spend a few more bucks and get that photographer who will genuinely care for who YOU are and YOUR photos, while charging what they should to cover their costs of providing excellent service! it is not about pride or greed, it's about knowing their own value. Which is also the value we extend to our clients. So a photographer with high value provides a high end service, a photographer with low value provides... *I also offer Military & Educator Discounts. Out of pure respect for people who protect our country and for those shaping our future leaders!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I think it's vital that the couple and I do an engagement shoot to get to know each other's vibes! If not for wedding, a short 15 to 20 min call to chat and get to know each other. So that we can find a language to communicate in during our session.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    My life's biggest passion is photography, something every photographer says because it is a profession that demands passion to truly be creative! I also worked in Hospitality Industry for the majority of my professional career, so doing weddings and making people feel comfortable has always been my forte.
