Photography is all about "Freezing the moment.” Photography has the power to defeat time. My inspired words from Sarah Leen "Pictures can keep the memory of a loved one alive, hold a moment in history for future generations, be a witness to tragedy or joy. Photography is the universal language that speaks to the heart. There is no language barrier in photography.
How did you get into the wedding industry?
I'm Ari buddy, who is from a normal and no photography background. Like others, I completed my schooling and got myself into an engineering college because of social pressure. It's in my second-year summer I found what I really wanted to do and in what I'm passionate about. However, it was not so easy to make everyone understand what I really think and want to do. With all struggles, I hold hands with startup photography teams as a freelance photographer. Among all the photography, We shared a special bond as a wedding photographer. For me every wedding is a festival for a bride, it embeds all the emotions happiness, excitement, happy fear, happy and sad tears, the pain of the bride, the pain of brides parents, love, colors. It gives a sense of satisfaction to myself.
Tell us about one of your best experiences at work?
Every Wedding is a special and new experience for me, but there are a few occasions which will stay close to our heart so intact.
One of those is the wedding we photographed in Kerala, God's Own Country. It was a moment for the bride to start to groom's home. With a heavy heart, the bride got inside the car. Bride's father took it out he busted out with tears, so do the bride's mom. To everyone's notice, the bride's younger brother broke down and cried. All these moments gave back the memories I had when my sister got married. Every marriage has emotions and a big sacrifice behind to make two people (The Bride and The Groom) happy.

What's your favorite part of the wedding day? Why?
My favorite part of the wedding day is "tying knot", it is the right and auspicious moment for everyone. It carries mixed emotions happiness crying and excitement. You can see all the emotions in Bride's face. Capturing that moment is precious.
“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.”
– Andy Warhol
Any advice for Brides and Grooms?
It's your day to be the best version of you. Generally, the bride and groom get tensed upon the situation don't let the external pressure haunt you, stay cool. and practice your cool poses in the mirror and pick out the best expressions for your naughty photographs. because moments can be passed but photographers freeze those moments for you to cherish your lifetime.
Any personal advice for fellow Photographers & Videographers?
Respect your fellow photographers, those who are freelancing think that client as your's and work your best.
Keep up the best timing to capture the happenings, even a second maters you may miss the "moment" which you cant create.
