Do you use film?
While I appreciate the heritage of film photography, I’ve found film to be limiting in its ability to capture color. Additionally, film results in softer and seemingly out-of-focus images. Since those do not lend themselves to my aesthetic sensibilities, my photography is exclusively digital.
How would you describe your style of photography?
The key descriptors for my style are modern, elegant, and romantic. This is echoed by my couples as well as colleagues in the wedding industry.
Do you have associate photographers?
I do not. I personally build a relationship with each couple, and what I learn about them influences how I photograph their wedding. Sending an associate would mean delivering generic photos that fail to capture the uniqueness of my couples.
Do you photograph same-sex weddings?
Absolutely! My ideal weddings are based on aesthetics and a relational connection. Love, respect, and dignity are virtues core to my being, and that’s what I bring to every wedding I photograph.
Do you offer videography?
I do not offer standalone videography but I do work with some terrific videographers. When you book both photo and video, we offer a discount off our collective services.
Do you photograph destination weddings?
Yes. I’ve photographed weddings all over California, in Arizona, New Mexico, Hawaii, and even Singapore. Please contact me using the form above and let’s talk!
What does your editing process look like?
I hand color-correct and retouch every photo I deliver. Since each wedding has its own mood, tone, and style, I make sure the edited photos accurately represent those.
How many weddings do you photograph a year?
Taking a bespoke approach to my craft, I aim for no more than two weddings a month. I like to give each of my couples the care and attention they deserve, so my ideal number is twenty weddings per year.
How many photos do you deliver?
I generally aim for 50 edited photos for every hour I shoot. The range depends on a few factors, including number of photographers, details, and the flow of the day.
Do you have general liability insurance?
I do. Most venues require vendors to provide proof of insurance. Please let me know if you need me to get that over to you.
How do you deliver the photos?
I deliver a highlights gallery a few days after the wedding, then upload all the final edited images to the same gallery. It’s shareable after the final images are ready, so your friends and family can enjoy those readily.
How do we commission you for our wedding?
Once we’ve connected and you’re ready to book, I’ll send over a digital contract to read over and sign. You can also pay through that portal using your Credit Card or ACH. A 50% non-refundable retainer is required to confirm your booking.

“In an otherwise busy and stressful time, Arpit put us at ease with his flexibility and organization. He captured our wedding day beautifully and was a pleasure to work with. When looking at our photos, it is apparent that Arpit has a great talent for this."
