About Apresh Chavda
Award-winning Asian Wedding Photographer
I don't take the usual wedding photos. My business is capturing emotional moments that will be shared for generations. When the decorations are taken down, the food is eaten, the mehndi has faded, and the honeymoon over: what's left? Anxious months of planning for that single day have ended in just memories. I record those memories for you to share with your children, and grandchildren, and great-grandchildren!
Every wedding is a fantastic occasion. Whether it's the colour and vitality of a traditional Asian wedding, the cool serenity of a church ceremony, or anything in between: they all have more in common than just celebrations. Amid the joy and excitement, there are small moments of tears, a reassuring hand-squeeze or fleeting glance, a second of nerves. Those are just as much part of the day as the moment of marriage itself. My years of experience as a wedding photographer have taught me how to anticipate those moments, and how to capture them unobtrusively to add a layer of emotional richness to the visual memories of your wedding.
To achieve this depth of connection, we need to trust each other.Trust is key to capturing the characters and emotions that make my work stand out and have won me many awards. So I start long before the day: getting to know you and understanding what is important to you and your families.I like to tell your story: what led up to this day, the love you share, the culture and history that make each of you unique. So I won't just be a photographer who just turns up on the morning – by the time of the wedding itself, we'll know each other quite well.
I have been an Indian wedding photographer in London for more than 12 years. This means that I understand the different types of ceremonies, and what will happen at each point. So you don't need to worry – I know where I need to be to get the very best photographs of the most important moments – you can trust me to be where it matters.
In addition, I've seen what works (and what doesn't), so I can share this experience with you. I can put you in touch with some of the best professional Asian wedding suppliers in the UK - DJ's, hairdressers, caterers, and so on, whom I know provide a top quality service.
I have photographed hundreds of weddings and my work has won many awards, which of course is gratifying; but it's the response of my couples that is the best reward:
So, if you want more than just photos of your wedding; if you feel a connection to what I've said and to the pictures in my portfolio - then I think we could be right for each other. Why not get in touch? I'm looking forward to meeting you.

At our first meeting, you'll be eager to tell me about your plans for your wedding celebrations, and I'll do a lot of listening.
