A bit more about us

A bit more about us

Photo Tantra was started by us (Vinayak Das and Snigdha Sheel) in early 2009.  We are perhaps the first husband and wife photography team in India to start shooting Indian weddings in a photojournalistic style. We both took up wedding photography because we thought it as the best way to experience what we love the most in life and about life and that is exploring new places, meeting new people, making new friends, lots of good food, lots of laughter and conversation.

We now live in New Delhi with our 2 kids and 3 dogs and are managing an enterprise which offers wedding photography and wedding cinematography service all over the world.

We have been nominated several times as the top wedding photographers in India by esteemed publications like Conde Nast Traveller and Vogue India. Our weddings films have won awards at the Great Indian Wedding Awards 2015. We are also regarded as the top destination wedding photography team in India having shot weddings in all the top destination wedding venues is India. Our team has done wedding photography and films in Udaipur, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Goa, Cochin and Mahabalipuram. We have also done work in Thailand, Nepal, New Zealand, Scotland, Malayasia, Tanzania and Kenya.  

Over the years our team has grown bigger and in 2011 we started an offshoot Alpo Galpo Films which started making wedding films. Currently we are geared up to handle really big weddings which require multiple photographers and cinematographers as well as small intimate affairs which has only a photographers or two.

Currently Photo Tantra has a team of handpicked professionals who comprise the core photography and cinematography teams.  We follow the same philosophy that Snigdha and I followed from Day 1. 

Our photography style is a mix of photojournalism and glamour photography. We love to mix candid shots with fun posed shots. We love to shoot everything that happens in an around a wedding; be it the makeup, the family drama, the pranks, the hidden glances or public display of love. We love it all. And how do we do it? By making friends with the couple, their friends and their family, even their pets. It comes as no surprise when a couple wants their furry friends to be shot and put in the wedding album.

Cinematographers from our team focus on providing a touching wedding film which captures the true essence of the place, the couple and the event. The approach is a lot similar to our photo team in engaging as friends with the client and shooting the event unobtrusively.

Our work on candid wedding photography has been featured in many magazines including Marie Claire, Femina, Wedding Vows, Smart Photogrpahy, Indian Express, Bangalore Mirror, Brown Paper Bag, Wedding Sutra, Deccan Chronicle, The Telegraph to name a few.
We became the first wedding photographers from India whose images were featured in the People magazine (US edition March 2012). Our photo story of The Big Bang Theory star Kunal Nayyar and former Miss India Neha Kapoor's wedding was featured as a multi page photo spread. Our work was subsequently published in the "Who" magazine in Australia.

PhotoTantra takes pride in being the wedding photographers for some of the leading industrialists, eminent lawyers and business houses in India.

Photo Tantra offers various wedding photography packages and the charges start at Rs. 1,50,000/- per day and Cinematography Packages that start from Rs. 2,00,000/- a day.

Since our inception we have done over 400 weddings. It's a great achievement for us considering the fact that we started in late 2009 and have covered weddings from almost every part of India, almost every community in India.

We started with a modest Arya Samaj wedding, followed by a big Bengali-American wedding in Calcutta's prestigious Tollygunge Club. There has been no looking back after that. Since then we have shot weddings in palaces in Rajasthan, at quaint small cities, in luxury resorts and at International destinations including a Pakistani wedding in the heart of Scotland. For us every wedding is special and every couple is our favourite couple. Some of them have become our friends and many treat us like their family. It does not matter if it's a celebrity wedding in Delhi Gym Khana club or a simple wedding in a small town in a remote city in South India; we have been blessed with immense love from all the families and the couples who we have shot for.
