Fathers come in all shapes and sizes.
Like this stylish dude for example. 😁

We were looking for photos in our archives to celebrate the occasion of Father's day, but then we have our brides doing all the work for us. 😁 Here's the first of 3 reposts celebrating this day for all the fathers out there. 🤗🤗🤗 #Repost@anushkasharma (@get_repost)
Happy grooms make us happy!
Vardhan + Chandini, 2018
Continuing with the story of how every story is important to us, here's one of the coolest grooms we've shot recently. 😁 Vardhan is one of those guys whose smile is infectious and is literally the life of the party - even when he's being pelted with water!
1. This uncontrollable grin at the jeela karra bellam.
2. That moment of mirth at the pellikoduku.
3 & 4: Being the life of the party, and busting a move. 😁
This is wedding photography.
We hardly ever share our work online, so here's a small insight into our approach to the big Indian wedding in 6 photos. Also, this is a story from the groom's perspective cuz we feel that we're always posting photos about the bride. 😁😁 From Nikita and Aravind's wedding in Chennai, 2018.
1. Our primary focus at a wedding is always the real moments that are gifted to us by the families. Like this epic split second where all the lights lined up during the bride and groom's dance at the Sangeet. 😍
2. Then there is the fact that Indian weddings are primarily about family. At Stories, we love documenting the family's journey through a wedding. Like this happy loving moment between the groom and his parents.
3. Or like this tiny happy hug from the groom's sister. 🤗
4. Or like this one time when the all the grandparents share a laugh. The thing with real moments vs posed portraits, is that you just have to be in the moment and the photos will come to you. Unlike portraits where you need to buy time and innovate and communicate, and most of the time the images may not be true to the couple. :) 5. Weddings for us also about the tiny details. Like all the women of the house coming together for this ceremony at the groom's home.
6. Of course, all this doesn't mean we don't have innovate while making our images. This is a single composition of the groom getting ready. 😁
Simply put, the best wedding moments happen between all those portraits you see on Instagram. And we love capturing them.
Lit by love.
@mohamedjameer made this portrait of Sripriya and Aditya after their wedding past midnight. Here's a simple tip for all brides and their photographers: no matter how late your wedding ends, try and get one portrait of yours together. Here in India, we don't have the luxury of a formal portrait time on the wedding day and this is something we all miss out on in the chaos of the day!
Made with #sonyalphain and a single @profotoglobal A1. With @sprinkledwords, @allenjz, @shivalichopra, and @josephradhik.

Happiness is about family!! 😁😁 Uninhibited, abundant happiness captured by @mohamedjameer. See that phone in the photo? We're not troubled by it, more on phones being used during weddings in our next post. 😁 #love
