That's her, Ashwini Desai (a.k.a. Ash)

COO & Client Relations

Me: I love my ice-cream in a cup. I don’t want it dripping all over me!  Ash: Only eats ice-cream if served in a cone.
Me: I like to hum along to retro Hindi songs anytime of the day and you certainly don't want to know what I sing in the shower! Ash: Listens to "Yellow" while working, Mozart symphonies while relaxing but "Dil Dance Maare" while driving.
Me: At a party, come find me at the bar. Ash: You will have to drag her off the dance floor.
Me: I love sports, cheer for Federer and weep even today when I watch SRT's retirement speech. Ash: Loves books.
Me: I love watching movies. Ash: Likes them but loves her books more.
Me: I read Robin Sharma, know everything that is written about Sachin, take inspiration from Steve Jobs, can talk non-stop about Apple (not the fruit!). Ash: Her "dream" job would be on Captain Picard's Enterprise, she would love to cast spells with Hermione, be the Watson to Holmes or escape to any other godforsaken fantasy world!

We are opposites in many way but there is a lot that we have in common. We are dreamers, explorers and love travelling together. We are nature and animal lovers (don't ask us cats or dogs, we love both!). We love beaches but we love mountains too. We love coffee, chocolate and pizza. We are foodies but don't enjoy cooking much. Most times we are like Fire & Ice but a better analogy is Yin & Yang.
This is us. Two sapiens who love good conversations and a good story. Tell us yours. We would love to hear from you.

ABOUT DREAMCATCHERS PHOTOGRAPHY®

Dreamcatchers Photography® was born as a part of my unending quest for creating meaningful imagery. Today, my wife Ash and I manage the brand together. A reluctant Chartered Accountant with a thriving career in coaching, I ditched it all to pick up the camera to pursue my love for photography and films. With a management degree in Finance, Ash had a career at a global investment bank which she quit to partner me on this journey. Now our lives have become much busier than ever but we are loving every bit of it! It has been a wonderful journey so far and we still have miles to go.

When I hold my camera to capture your wedding, I have absolute realisation of the trust and responsibility that rests upon my shoulders. The moments that we capture, will become memories that you and your family will cherish for life. They will potentially become heirlooms for your future generations. Your wedding may be an intimate one or a big fat extravaganza, it is as important to us as it is to you. This pushes us to capture all the important moments and also everything that happens in between, which is usually forgotten. You will see the happiness and the tears, the joy and the euphoria, the emotions and the actions galore, in our photos and films. They will be your personal time capsule, handcrafted by us with love, to transport you back to your wedding day, to relive your precious moments through our eyes.

Dreamcatchers Photography® is a team of award winning wedding photographers & film-makers. We have been privileged to be a part of 250+ unique wedding stories from more than 18 cities and 3 countries so far.
