VIVAHS & DIVAS is a design studio based in Calcutta. What started as a humble photo blog in 2012, has over the years evolved into a revered design house providing professional services and consulting in Wedding, Fashion and Commercial Photography and Cinematography.
Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale. Your Wedding day is a very special and momentous event of your life, the memories of which you will cherish for years to come. The day is as important for us as it is for you. And it is our endeavour to preserve these memories in photographs and films that you will treasure forever.
Our style of Photography is deeply inspired by fine-art and fashion photography and rooted in the philosophies of Wedding Photojournalism. The result is a creative blend of highly artistic and lively photographs that truly reflect the many fascinating emotions that unfold during a wedding.
To complement our photographic style, our cinematographers design the wedding film along the same principles of photojournalism. The shoot is skillfully choreographed incorporating live interactions, scripted scenes and dialogues and goes through an intricate cinematic design process. The final film is a chronicle of the actual events in a cinematic story-telling representation.
From exotic fashion to the most exquisite bridal couture, we design portfolios that stand out. With a legacy in aesthetic design and an appreciation for traditional and contemporary art, our team of designers is able to recommend the perfect blend of hair, makeup and wardrobe required to make the most glamorous and appealing portfolios.
In today’s era of ubiquitous social media, short films have become the preferred way of reaching out to prospective customers. From the neighbourhood Café to gourmet restaurants, from the luxury spa to opulent boutiques, an ad-film creates that very essential ‘first impression’ of the business by appealing to the senses of the viewers. Our niche for making documentaries, short-films and music videos help us to design ad-films that are crisp, precise and cleverly choreographed to epitomize your business idea.
I’m not as consummate in writing about myself, as I am in my work. Therefore I’ll keep this short and simple.
I’m the Curator and Principal Designer at VIVAHS & DIVAS. I’m a freelance (read 'by free will') Design Consultant.
I live in Calcutta and I grew up here. Over most of these years of ”growing up” I’ve had my head in the clouds, and my 'Appetite for Wonder' has only grown with the increments of time. Beginning with a humble drawing book and crayons, my veneration for the arts has only deepened over the years, and my creative pursuits transcended different mediums.
Thank you for visiting my website and your interest in my work. Please do get in touch for any queries regarding my work. I'll be happy to hear from you.
