MY GOAL IS TO DELIVER WORK THAT WILL TRULY ALLOW YOU TO RELIVE THE DAY AND GROW IN VALUE EVERY TIME YOU LOOK BACK AT ANY MOMENT OF YOUR WEDDING

hey fam, i'm nil.

WHETHER IT’S A THREE-DAY INDIAN WEDDING FULL OF 400+ GUESTS OR A TWO-HOUR ELOPEMENT IN THE RAIN WITH JUST FAMILY, I COME PREPARED FOR EVERY SITUATION AND DOCUMENT ACCORDINGLY

I TRY TO BE DELIBERATE AND TRANSPARENT WITH THE ENTIRE PHOTO JOURNEY PROCESS, FROM THE FIRST E-MAIL TO DELIVERY OF THE LAST IMAGE

The creative behind the camera

If I’m going to ask for your trust in capturing a glimpse of your life, then the least I can do is share a few glimpses of mine…

FAMILY IS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT

Weather it's silly faces or serious ones, with Heineken's or without, treasure these moments.

ANYTHING 60'S AESTHETIC IS MY JAM

I was mainly shaped in my transformative years specifically by the music of the decade. I learned how to be an entrepreneur and to relate to people from all walks of life from my experience performing for years .

MISTAKE NO. 9 MILLION AND SIXTY-TWO

If you are attending a wedding in India, NEVER, EVER be in a situation where you are dancing(?) alone on stage. It’ll only look like you’re saying, “No paparazzi, please!” and not even CLOSE to the art of “dancing.”

"Choosing Nil as our photographer was the first wedding decision we made, even before picking a date and venue and know that it was one of the best decisions. "

"If you’re camera shy, Nil is your guy. He has a way of making you feel like you’re just hanging out but at the same time pointing you in the exact direction for your photos to turn out beautifully."

"Nil made the experience go from awkward to fun and absolutely killed it with the lighting and the poses etc. We immediately knew we had to hire him for the wedding."

"Not only are the pictures amazing- but there are so many I feel like he captured every moment of the entire day! He honestly was our favorite vendor to work with and anyone who hires him will not be let down!"

"He researched the area, saw other photo shoots at the location, and even arrived 30 minutes before our scheduled time to walk around and get familiar with the site."

"Less than 3 weeks later we received our photos back! And I am overjoyed on how they came out! He captured so many beautiful moments that I will be able to treasure for a lifetime. Thank you Nil! You are the best”

"Our shoot was a blast! It was exhilarating, hilarious, romantic, and most of all fun - there was never any room for nerves with Nil's easy-going personality. "

"He really knows how to get you to come to life on the other side of the lens and brings out your best. All of our photos came out so well, and perfectly captured all the different sides of our relationship from caring and soft to fun-loving and full of joy."

"Between the music, laughs, and conversations he felt more like a friend than a photographer and I think that’s how everyone would want to feel."

"I’ve had 3 shoots since being engaged and I pretty much dread how awkward I am in front of the camera however Nil is a magic maker! Within a couple minutes of shooting my fiancé and I, he had us up on rocks looking down at his camera. We were more comfortable than we’ve ever been before."

"I actually already had a photographer for the wedding but I loved Nil’s work so much we asked Nil to capture our day instead."

"He tries to make you as relaxed as possible for pictures since we’re not all models he really eases you into how to take pictures."
