My husband and I are in the process of putting together our wedding album and I wanted to take a moment to commend our wonderful photographer, Radhika.

We are so thrilled with the images. We have beautiful portraits and group photos (taken before the wedding) and a fantastic array of candids from the ceremony and reception. It's exactly what we wanted. Nothing looks forced or posed. There are some funny pictures, some expressive pictures, and some really beautiful and moving pictures. Every guest at our celebration appears in at least a few photos.

I found Radhika to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, and warm-hearted. I discovered her after an endless web search. We had a long chat on the phone, then, when we both decided it was a good fit, we discussed terms. I had a couple questions after we got the contract, which she answered, and then that was that. No surprises.

She showed up ahead of schedule on the big day and had thought about everything ahead of time (including allowing time to park the car, which can be a bloodsport in Brooklyn). It was a sunny but rather chilly day in April and I was freezing in my sleeveless wedding dress. I don't know how she did it, but I look happy and relaxed and like it's 75 degrees in every photo.

During the ceremony and reception she was there but barely visible. She was constantly photographing but never intrusive. She photographed everyone on the list I provided her ahead of time, and then before she left asked if there were any other photos we wanted. We got the online proofs a couple months after the wedding and were thrilled with the results.

Like most people, I'm my worst critic when it comes to how I look in photos, but I thought, wow, what a dazzling bride and groom! I'll tip my hat to the person who helped me with my makeup, and will give credit to just being happy on such a wonderful day, but I also think this is because we hired such an excellent photographer.

Radhika is a brilliant photographer who takes a serious and professional approach to her work. We are in the process of creating our album with her now and are absolutely thrilled with the images she captured. She listened to all of our preferences in terms of posed/unposed shots, but didn't hesitate to speak from her experience about what works, which we truly appreciated. She did an amazing job of capturing emotions, expressions, and intimate moments among the wedding party and guests. She was also very understanding of my nerves about our engagement photos and accommodated our schedule changes. If you are looking for a serious craftsperson with incredible skill, Radhika is the right photographer for you.

I cannot recommend Radhika highly enough. Radhika photographed our destination wedding in Cape Cod and she was outstanding in every way. Her peaceful, unobtrusive presence put us at ease and she made sure that we (and our guests) looked the very best version of ourselves, both candid and posed. Her photos bring the story of our weekend back to life; they really capture the emotions, beauty and special moments – even some we weren’t aware of at the time. Months later, her pictures still take my breath away.
Picking a photographer was a difficult process: most had nice photographs, friendly personalities and polished sales pitches, and it wasn’t easy to tell them apart. My old friend Radhika was the obvious choice, but I didn’t want her to have to “work my wedding”; I wanted her to enjoy the festivities. In the end, though, I didn’t believe that anyone could match her extensive experience (award-winning international photojournalist and wedding photographer); her beautiful portfolio; and her professional approach. She agreed to work with another photographer that we hired so that she could still enjoy the wedding.
Radhika was wonderful to work with. She helped us plan our schedule to get the photos we wanted without missing out on the party or our guests. She showed us examples of decorations/lighting that would enhance the reception photographs. She was undaunted by the noon sun that concerned other photographers we spoke to, using it to create the most beautifully lit photographs I have ever seen. Some of my favorites were from the end of the night when we lit sparklers on the bay – not only was Radhika still there to capture the moment, but her photos were stunning – she really knows how to work with any light to take amazing photographs. She even got up before dawn to photograph us dressed up at sunrise on the beach.
I never imagined that our photos could look so good. We are so grateful that Radhika was able to work with us.

We had the pleasure of having Radhika at our wedding and we couldn't be happier. When we first looked at our proofs, we had such a difficult time choosing which ones to use in our album since all of them are amazing.

We booked Radhika several months prior to the wedding. She did our engagement shoot inside Central Park and knew exactly where the best spots were and captured it beautifully. Radhika helped us coordinate our outfits for the engagement shoot, entertained our bike riding idea, and even spent extra time with us to make sure our photo session was a success! We displayed the engagement pictures in our guest signature book and our guests absolutely loved them.

For our wedding day, she did a great job listening to our wants and making sure they were met. We had a large wedding and at many times during the day, the flow was unpredictable, yet she managed to capture all the moments.

We’ll definitely be contacting Radhika for future family shoots.

Radhi understood the kinds of photos I wanted of my wedding and she delivered! Despite hiccups like bad weather and some events running late, Radhi capture my wedding events just as I hoped she would. The quality of her work is impeccable, and even my guests recognized it when viewing photos online after the events! She continues to work with me in a thoughtful and detailed manner while I plan my album and portrait orders. Overall I am very happy that she and her team captured memories of that special time in my life!

Radhika is simply amazing!

My wife and I got married in Central Park on the first weekend that same sex marriages were allowed in NY. The day was crazy, and it went by so incredibly fast. Radhika captured little moments that I didn't even remember happening until I saw the photos, which is incredible. The smallest facial expressions, the lone tear running down the side of my wife's face, a loving hug between friends... The things you think nothing of end up making the most powerful images and memories, and Radhika captured every one of them without us even noticing she was snapping away. She blended into the background during the ceremony and ended up capturing some truly amazing photos!

Her work is absolutely fantastic, and you won't find a more professional, more qualified photographer if you look for a hundred more years.

I’m simply in love with our wedding photographs -- they were far beyond anything I could have imagined. Radhika’s journalistic style really captured the spirit and emotions as well as the memories of our day. There are photos that make me smile and laugh each time I see them simply because they evoke such a vivid memory. I recommend Radhika highly. She didn’t just deliver amazing wedding photographs that we will cherish forever; she was instrumental in making our wedding day such a success!

I really wanted the perfect wedding photographs, and this was without question the most intimidating aspect of my wedding to plan. Radhika was a great match for me; she took the time to get to know me and what I was hoping my wedding day would be like, and then she guided me through the process of planning for the photography. She put together a wedding package for us that fit our needs (and our budget) as well as helped me to plan the timing of the day. Radhika provided service beyond our agreed upon contract, photographing the venue and landscape before her official workday started. While we considered other photographers who charged less, we chose Radhika for her overall value and quality of service and were not disappointed.

Our wedding day didn’t go exactly as planned (it’s my understanding that they rarely do), but Radhika kept us to our schedule and got all the photographs we wanted (and then some!). We took photographs before our ceremony, and my husband and I have such wonderful memories of trekking around the vineyard while Radhika recorded the natural beauty. It was a much needed break in the day for us to relax, have some quiet time and plenty of laughs before our ceremony began. I never once worried about the photography the day of our wedding. Radhika had everything scouted out ahead of time, captured every moment and adapted to last minute changes with ease. Our minister was apprehensive about allowing Radhika to take photographs during the ceremony, but later raved that she didn’t notice her at all since she was so discreet!

We loved working with Radhika. She captured the true essence of our wedding, our joy, and our love for each other and our families. With everything going on on our wedding day, we were relieved to have in Radhika a partner whom we could trust and to whom we could truly "outsource" all our concerns about photography. With Radhika, there was never a point where we were worried that something would fall through the cracks. Also, the photos were stunning -- everyone commented on how beautiful our slide show was and the photos overall were of the highest quality. We'll enjoy the photos for the rest of our lives.

The photos of our wedding day turned out beautifully.

She was willing to talk to us about what we wanted and needed--and although she definitley has her own firm opinions about how she thinks things should be, she's willing to be flexible.

she's responsive and helpful--and her work speaks for itself.
