(keh-run) | noun
my name is kiran!
1. ray of light - my life revolves around light. creating it. basking in it. capturing your sweet, warm moments in it
2. family - i got royalty and loyalty inside my DNA... the family we have, and the family we choose. nothing matters more.
3. adventure seeker - i have travelled to over 25 countries in 25 years. the goal is to visit every single country, at least once. i am enamored by culture, by the differences between all of us, because to me, they magnify the similarities.
4. first generation immigrant - as the first American born member of my family, i am all too familiar with the struggles of assimilating traditional eastern indian and American western culture. i have seen all kinds of traditional and non-traditional weddings and couples. my goal is to create art that symbolizes the combination of our cultures. that respects both aspects. i want a henna covered bride in a bold red dress eloping in the rocky mountains. i want to capture a couple with the strength and the power that i know comes with growing up unsure of exactly where you belong. i want the couples that have found home in the world, no matter what their address is. let's pack up our bags, feel the dirt under our feet, and feel grateful for every breath of clean air we get to take.
I only take on a limited number of couples a year. That's because I truly want to give the couples that choose me, the experience they deserve. I am not everyones photographer. That's why I think it's important to get to know each other, build trust together and create magic.
I want the brides who don't mind getting their dress a little dirty or sneaking out of their reception for sunset photos.
I want the bride who's definitely gonna stuff her face with burgers, fries and a sundae at the end of the night.
Food trucks instead of a traditional dinner? HELL YES
Eloping in the mountains? I'm there in a heartbeat!
Getting married in a National Park? I'll bring extra bug spray and let's get our boots dirtyyy
A traditional 5 day Indian wedding from A-Z to with all 14 of your parents siblings? GIRL, YOU GOT IT.
I specialize in outdoor weddings and adventurous elopements because that's what calls to my heart the most, but honestly, I am so down for those traditional weddings because I know tradition (coming from a BIG tight-knit family with 38 first cousins over here hahah).
No matter where your adventure takes place, if after reading all this, I sound like the missing puzzle peice to complete your meaningful day, reach out, and let's get to work together.
I cannot wait to tell your unique story because I'm sure no one's ever quite shown it how we will.
my photography style is what might be familiar to you as documentary style. i am not about posing you in god-awful prom type poses. my goal for any session you and i go into, is to create an experience together and to capture it, exactly as honest as it is. ultimately, i want you two leaving the session remembering why you are so crazy in love with one another, and falling just a little more in love that day.
lets be honest, each couple has their struggles, the rough and the ugly, some worse than others. but what you fight for, that passionate bond that you know you'll never find again, that once-in-a-lifetime love, that's that shit that inspires me. that's what makes me most excited.
