Hello. I'm Nikhil Shastri and I'm a Wedding Photographer based in Bangalore, India.
I live in Bangalore, India with my wife, an 18 month old Shih-Tzu who thinks he is the alpha, and my 16 month old daughter who is the alpha.
15 years ago, I found my dads Olympus OM10 in the closet (gathering dust) and it piqued my interest. Spent a summer roaming the streets and learning the art only to shun it back into the closet while I finished my degree in Engineering. 8 years, a couple of boring jobs, a Nikon D40 and tons of images of random birds and flowers later I shot a friends wedding. That was my initiation into the world of wedding photography. I quit my then job 6 months on and here I am. I’ve been shooting for 4+ years, documenting weddings and portrait sessions in some of the most incredibly gorgeous little corners of India and the World and I can’t imagine doing anything else.
That Olympus OM10 proudly sits on my desk now, as clean as a whistle!
