Hi! My name is Aarav. I’m a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Providence, RI.
Here are some things about me, but get in touch so we can have a real-time conversation!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved pouring through photos in albums, in shoe boxes, stuck in notebooks, and, more recently, online. I’m a romantic, and a lover of seeing stories and relationships told in the images that abound. I think that’s why I’ve dedicated so much of my life to creating photographs about people and places.
Other important things about me: I’ll rarely turn down craft beer and french fries and I think salted chocolate is so very satisfying. I’m a runner. I ride a Circle A bicycle and think it’s great. I appreciate nice paper, handmade books, and well-flowing pens. I believe bench-made, wood furniture is beautiful. I find solace in the forest of the Western Massachusetts Berkshires; trips to Provincetown are magical and affirming; the Mass MOCA is my favorite place to wander on a rainy day. But Providence, my home, is where my favorite people, food, and light always come around. I’m happy to share my life here with my partner of 15 years and our 7-year-old son.
When I photograph, I open my heart to the people and the interactions around me. I take deep care in connecting with the couples I work with, and value the relationships we build. You have to trust me to let me in, to let me hang out with you in your most memorable moments.
My style blends documentary and fine art to bring you meaningful, timeless photos of your special day. I’ll be right there, photographing you and the wonders that unfold, and building a portfolio of images that will tell the story of your love with compassion. Please read some testimonials from past clients to get a sense of their experiences working with me.
