Ankita Asthana at WeddingNama

Ankita is an Architecture graduate and a post-graduate in photography from the prestigious NID. It was her sheer interest that led her to professionally learn photography before she went commercial in 2009 and co-founded WeddingNama later.  She loves creating beautiful surreal visuals to be long remembered which would’ve rather been easily forgotten. Photography to her is the means of communicating with this universe, expressing what cannot be expressed in mere words, connecting with people’s emotions and dreams. And weddings are just the place for that! Her unique style is to create something new, something different; rather than just being there, she likes to make things happen and then be the storyteller. She ensures that every story is captured in the most unique manner possible. Understanding the couple and becoming friends with them before the shoot is the ‘key’. The photograph should be able to bring out the personality of the couple.

It was there that she started taking pictures of children and got involved in candid photography. Soon she started getting requests from friends to cover weddings or to take pictures of families. It was in 2011 that she went commercial and has never looked back.
