The Book Of Love

People find love in places they’ve never been to. In people they’ve never met.

And then there are some that find love in their oldest friends.

Because it’s Valentines’ Day, we got four photographers to tell us a little about their all-time favourite picture, and give us a little glimpse of their romantic side.

After all, they are the ones capturing every beautiful moment, behind-the-scenes.


Natasha Samant

She easily documents emotions, making her wedding photography even more evocative. The Storyteller promises to capture your journey in the most poignant way possible – tight hugs, happy tears, discreet grins and the magic during the madness.

The purest form of love – one of a doting grandma.





Niklesh Malkani

Say Cheeze creates compelling images that will just make you want to take the plunge yourself. Niklesh’s
soft-spoken nature creates a sense of ease and trust in his craft, allowing his subjects to let him in on the
intimate moments.

A love that is liberating, carefree and full of vigour.



Neha Jiwarajka

Neha has been a wedding photographer with a unique, cinematic eye for six years. After photographing many beautiful weddings in her signature style, she found the love of her life and is getting married this February.

Love: A strong foundation; a shelter; a feeling of calmness.


Stuti Sakhalkar Dasgupta

The Cheesecake Project began with the intention of making photographs feel like love. Over the past five years, our endeavour has been just that – to make people happy, to show them how loved they are, by their loved ones, by their families.

Comforting. Confident. Caring. A love that speaks volumes through its happy smiles.

Your First Crush

A thing your partner did for you that tugged at your heartstrings

Natasha: Made me a surprise breakfast in bed.
Niklesh: Her faith in me, every day.
Neha: While I was travelling in Antarctica for a month without any contact, he wrote me beautiful letters in a book every single day that I was away.
Stuti: He surprised me with a lens I wanted, just like that. I knew I’d married right 🙂

A song / book / movie that turns you into mush:
