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!
“We look forward to showing our children how special our wedding day was, and we couldn't do this without your amazing photos."
Nikhil and Reena Patel
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.
“We can't stop looking through every single shot you have captured for us! Each one brings a smile (and a tear) to my face . . . but that just means that the emotion is captured as well as what's happening in the photo."
Manesh and Shilpa Gohil
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.
“We are all still talking about how amazing the pictures are! I cannot get over some of the moments you guys captured, but most of all how you totally got our personalities."
I have been an Indian wedding photographer for more than 10 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 shots 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 - DJs, 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:
“Sean and I were able to relive those precious, fleeting moments that last only a second in real-time, but thanks to you, we can now enjoy and fully appreciate for as long as we want."
“We can't thank you enough for your amazing photos . . . you've captured our wonderful memories perfectly."
Pujal and Neil Upadhyay.
“You have made sure that we have the most perfect memories from each event that we will treasure for the rest of our lives."
Dhuriti Patel and Amar Shah.
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.
