Finding a photographer was only second to confirming that the venue and church were free on the date we needed. For us, the photographer had to be someone that was just that, a fantastic photographer primarily, but also someone that would fit in well with our very small wedding. The images that he takes are so raw, capturing real emotion and really transporting you back to how you felt when the shot was taken. I saw this in some of the images from his online portfolio, but when we looked at our own images it was even more powerful. My husband (heheheheeee, I am always going to love saying that!!) cried more watching the slideshow than I have ever seen him cry the entire time I have known him. Not that I would ever wish for that, but the images were absolutely magical. I’m so pleased we paid a bit more and got the true quality that we wanted. After the day has passed it’s the photos that future generations will see and these will be the things that we look back over.
Not only was he fantastically unobtrusive, he even helped and sorted the delivery of the flowers to another part of the bridal party for us when it was all getting a bit last minute!!! Rahul fitted in so well with our families, everybody loved having him there. He was so professional, never wasting a moment on missing an opportunity. Rahul is not only a fab photographer that has captured tender moments forever, but a genuinely lovely guy to have with you on a very special day. I would wholeheartedly recommend you Rahul, you’re a true gem.

Choosing the right photographer is an unbelievably important part of the big day as in years to come those images keep the story in pictures alive and are what we share with our family and friends whilst also being something personal for us as a couple. We could not have been more happier in having you Rahul capturing all our wedding events all the way from the pre-wedding shoot to the registry to the indian wedding with your awesome talent. Having you as our photographer we have learnt that it is not about just “having your photos taken”…. your professional and enthusiastic support in not only the planning but throughout our events in capturing our whole story and emotion for the big day whilst still truly reflecting both of us was invaluable.
We could not have even imagined how impressive some of the shots that you took for us would turn out and a true representation of your skill and vision for sure! We were equally impressed with how quickly our images and album have been done too and have had so much feedback from family on friends on your brilliant work. An amazing professional, i would highly recommend your talent to all prospective couples looking for the right photographer any day and want to take this opportunity to thank you so much for being our wedding photographer and giving us some stunningly captured memories to keep for the rest of our lives.
Simply said, we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer than Rahul to shoot our wedding. He was extremely helpful and responsive from day one. From our pre-wed shoot through to our wedding day we got to know Rahul fairly well, both personally and professionally. His friendly nature and enthusiasm for his work was clear to see.
His style of photography is to capture natural emotions and moments and he did that to a high effect on our wedding photos. Equally, his portrait shots are amazing. Rahul was punctual for all of our events and his turnaround on photos is super quick. He created a beautiful slideshow for us to share with friends and family, and sent us the whole online gallery within a few weeks of the wedding.
We are currently working our way through the photos to choose for our album – this is certainly the hardest bit as we love so many of them! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rahul to anyone looking for a first class wedding photographer.

We were set on having Rahul capture our wedding ever since our cousin had her wedding photography done by him a few years back. We remember the first time we saw her wedding photos and instantly loved the style of his work and knew he would be our photographer for our big day.
Rahul’s artistic style captures particular moments so beautifully, both candid and posed shots. It was so easy to get along with him and he put us at ease throughout the day. Now we’re left with the task of picking out photos for our wedding album – going to be difficult as there are so many incredible shots!
We would recommend Rahul to anyone looking for a highly skilled, reliable photographer!

Rahul, we knew you were the photographer for us the minute we looked through your portfolio online – being passionate about photography myself, I was extremely picky with this decision. Not only have we received EPIC photographs from all the shoots we’ve done, but you also made sure that we were completely comfortable in front of the camera. Neither of us were natural posers, and I am used to being on the other end of the camera. Booking you was the BEST decision we made for our wedding and we couldn’t we happier! Looking back at all our photos gives me goosebumps, and you have captured the most important day of our lives perfectly – these photos are all we have to cherish our special day for the rest of our lives; they will be with us forever, and we couldn’t have chosen a better photographer. Your work has reminded us of many moments which were simply a blur after our big day.
I wanted a unique way of capturing our special day, and most other photographers I looked at, had a very average set of images from the events they captured. Rahul captured EPIC moments in an EPIC way! He got creative behind the lens and that was what I wanted for my wedding! During our shoots you weren’t at all formal and rigid – you always made us feel comfortable and we always had a laugh! After each shoot we’ve done, whether it was the pre-wedding or the actual day itself, the teaser image you showed us a few days later ALWAYS blew our minds away! Its amazing to see what you actually capture from the other end of the camera! Sometimes I can’t believe its actually me and Ikki in the photos, we look so natural! Rahul – Ikki and I will never forget your tips for taking the perfect pictures, we still follow the ‘Rahul pose’ (as we call it now) when we take selfies today! 🙂
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING EVERYTHING WE WANTED IN OUR PHOTOGRAPHER! YOU TRULY ARE THE BEST AT WHAT YOU DO!

My husband and I are so happy that we chose Rahul for our wedding photography. It was great to meet Rahul and work with him during our wedding – he is a genuinely nice guy who is passionate about what he does and conducts his work with skill and professionalism. His unobtrusive documentary-style photography captured the story of our wedding day better than we had hoped. We both had so much fun and we know that each time we look at our photos we will be able to relive our wedding day!
Thank you Rahul.

Absolutely THE BEST photographer that we have seen for wedding photography! He made us feel at ease the entire time and truly captured the most amazing shots. They are both unique and timeless. Also he effortlessly tailored specific photo requests, which i really appreciated especially of my Mum’s photo, who passed away a few years ago.
He captured the moments which is exactly what we wanted on our wedding day. It’s not the formal photos that remind you how great your day was, it’s the natural moments of fun, excitement, and love that needs to be captured.
Rahul did not miss a moment and he has a true passion. Overall it actually made us both quite emotional and it brought a tear to my eye.
Thank you so much Rahul!
Best wishes from

Rahul is just an amazing photographer. From the moment we first spoke to throughout our journey, we found him to be accommodating and understanding. We had several challenges during the wedding but Rahul was never phased by any of them, he brought humour and light to all situations – putting us at ease all the time. During our shoots, Rahul knew exactly what he was doing to get those amazing shots- he has a real skill which has come through on our gallery which is nothing short of outstanding, we love every single photo of us and our guests – memories which will last a lifetime. He became a friend during the wedding and I would recommend him over and over again! If you’re getting married, Rahul has to be who you choose!

Rahul is a brilliant photographer. He has an eye for finding the beauty in the smallest moments. When I look at my wedding photos I am not only able to see every moment again but i am able to feel them. This is a priceless gift that Rahul has given to me. Working w/Rahul on my wedding day was a pleasure. He is involved without being obtrusive.The most often used quote about our wedding photos from our friends & family are “these should be in a magazine.” They are stunning, journalistic, & real.
I booked Rahul because I was convinced no one could capture my wedding the way he could. Rahul is not only a great photographer but a fun, kind, and thoughtful person- the exact kind of person you’d want around on your wedding. I knew I would get the kind of photos I could never stop looking at if I booked Rahul.

With such a beautiful venue for our wedding, we didn’t think the pictures could do it justice, the pictures you have taken Rahul have exceeded our expectations in every way! When you are in the middle of it all you miss so much but you really captured the moments spectacularly. Our perfect day portrayed in such a beautiful way. Thank you so much.

We had Rahul capture our wedding day and we’re so glad we went with him.
Rahul is professional and an extremely talented photographer.
We love the photos we’ve seen so far as they are not the formal, posed shots but candids which beautifully captured emotions throughout the day.
We cannot wait to see the rest and cannot recommend Rahul enough.

Rahul’s manner and service has been outstanding every step of the way. From the first meeting, emails, wedding day and beyond he was nothing but professional, without formality-it was like communicating and speaking to a friend. He offered advice and help on other parts of the wedding and was incredible on the day; laid back&reassuring and dealt with a plethora of family photographers with respect and patience. I am sure the final product will be outstanding-not just a photographer but an artist
Rahul’s work speaks for itself. The way he captures moments is beyond incredible. So much beauty. And his manner was perfection throughout.
Amie and Max
We are so grateful to have Rahul Khona as our wedding photographer.
He is really amazing at what he does and captured moments from our wedding so so beautifully! I cannot say that would have been possible with any other photographer. We were both very nervous infront of the camera but Rahul went above and beyond to put us both at ease. He was the most important friend during the wedding events, being there for us and helping with any stress and ensuring that he wasn’t adding any! He’s a really great and humble guy and we would not hesitate to recommend him.
Thank you Rahul!

From the original phone call after I saw a friends wedding that had been photographed to the start of our engagement photo session we knew we had made the right choice having you as our wedding photographer Rahul.
On our wedding day, we were so happy and strangely relaxed from the start……. It was so important for us to feel this way as we knew it would be a big day, stressful yet exciting and you ensured our whole day was captured the way we wanted it to be.
With a touch of tradition with active glamour, the bridesmaids crazy shots and the shot of all the women at the wedding on the lawn with us all laughing and chatting and doing our own thing are amongst some of my favourites. The private photo time with my husband and I just gave us a little bit of time to ourselves too to have a little giggle about the day so far.
You were completely professional, definitely serious about your work, which I loved but additionally with the right about of humour and great advice…. (clearly I needed more instructions than my husband did). Your talent is second to none, you are truly a talented and blessed individual, we have loads of photo’s which reminded us of every section of moments from our day, nothing missed. There are moments that we didn’t even notice and there are photos that show that clearly sometimes you don’t have to ask guests to move out the way, but you just moved instead and still got a great inspirational photo.
You worked really hard all day. You knew when to leave and when to arrive and I really do not recall you asking me about anything, you just knew how to work it without being obvious, just discreet, sometimes I just did not even realise you were there.
You were noticeably calm and patient with over eager relatives who were also taking pictures or just with the whole general excitement of the day. Yourself and the videographer just seemed to work as a team although you had never met, loads of guests kept asking me how long I had known you as you just seemed to blend in like part of the family because of the way you interacted with us, as if you have know us for years.
It was also great to see you laughing on the clip that our DJ sent us of our evening reception when I knew you were getting some great family shots also.
In turn we actually truly hoped you enjoyed capturing our day, because no one would have been as professional and creative as you.
Thank You so much !
