Shanti Weddings was founded by award-winning photographer Stephan Maloman. We are a collective team of artistic photographers specializing in luxury south Asian weddings. Our signature editorial photography style blends modern portraiture and candid photojournalism. Light-filled, romantic, and elegant, our images highlight our couple's unique personality, authentic love, and joyful energy. Our approach blends the art of spontaneity and anticipation of genuine moments with great lighting and compelling composition.

"Some of my favorite wedding photos come from the moments right after I tell my couples that we're finished shooting. It's then when all the genuine interactions take place—the ones that happen when no one is looking."

Our portfolio consists of numerous international award-winning images that visually communicate the heart and passion we have for our work. These include trendsetting engagement photos, emotional photojournalism, and stunning wedding photographs. Our team will take time to listen to your plans and dreams, provide a seamless and individualized customer service experience, carefully form artistic visions, and make sure that you have a comfortable and fun wedding experience.

"We love the importance of what we do as wedding photographers. The creative freedom our couples give us to capture authentic moments that have a lasting impact is what drives our passion."
