Whether I'm photographing assignments for American or International magazines or your very special day I am a photojournalist at heart and my goal is to know my subjects and tell the story of what's happening around me; the joy, the tears, the nerves, and the laughs with a compassionate and caring eye.
My experiences as a photojournalist over a sixteen-year career, as well as my own Indian family background, gives me a unique understanding and insight into a variety of traditions, cultures, and ceremonies. I'm easily at home in a multitude of situations.
is a unique event for me and by getting to know you and what you want I work to
ensure that the photos reflect the people, atmosphere and events as they truly
are and as you'd like to remember them.
"I wanted a true Documentary-Style Photographer... Someone with experience to capture the true essence of my husband & I, and our families & friends as we made our life-long commitment to one another. The love that filled the air that day was evident in each photograph. Her photography style is unique, fresh, & honest. And her attention to detail was superb. It was a pleasure to have her document our Special Day through, from the moment I was getting ready in my Bridal Suite to the very last dance at the reception with my husband, surrounded by our closest family & friends. I highly recommend her." ---Reena Shah
"Her pictures were more honest and real and thus more moving than most wedding photos I had seen. She was extremely energetic, listened carefully, and was a pleasure to deal with." Pamela Kuper
