In 1999, he finished engineering school, specialized in computer science, started designing software for semiconductors and knows absolutely nothing about photography. A year later, he decided to move to US and then got persuaded by his friends to buy a tiny Kodak digital camera in 2001 to record some moments for an impromptu trip to Los Angeles. That’s it, and then there was no turning back ! After spending around 4 years in US, he decided to move to Europe, fall in love with a biologist doing PhD in Germany and got married. Of course the camera was always there, though a better DSLR instead of the point-n-shoot.

Ravi Vazirani

Lead Cinematographer & Film Editor

RaviMeet Ravi. While growing up, his dream was always to make films, and after graduating from Film and Video Design from MIT Institute of Design he did exactly that. His hungriness for stories and the love of latest technology make sure that the couples always remember their wedding in the best possible way.

He started his journey into film and video by simply mixing and matching shots of his favorite films to the music he liked. The montage style of film making. He believes that the effect one can achieve by juxtaposition of images is unique to film, unlike music, literature, theater or photography. His film editing is not simply stringing together of shots in a linear fashion, rather its guiding the psychological attention and eye of the audience to develop a particular emotion. And he simply excel in that. He now lives in Pune and make beautiful wedding films.
