About ShotStories by Varun Suresh
Hey there! I 'm Varun. I am an engineer turned photographer. For most parts I am a self taught photographer. I had a brief stint in London where I formally studied photography from London College of Communication. I love photographs that tell a story and photographs that have people. I love to incorporate these elements into my work, from travel to weddings to fine art portraiture. Currently I am a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Chennai. I took up wedding photography primarily because I love portraiture and I always thought of weddings as a place that could offer a complete spectrum of emotions. I like to work as unobtrusively as possible and like to invisibly capture the beauty of the day. I shot my first wedding in 2008. I specialise in Creative, Candid Wedding Photography and Fine Art Portraiture. I have shot 215 weddings as of the time of writing this. I have shot all over the country ranging from the big cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Calcutta, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and the smaller ones such as Cochin, Goa, Gurgaon, Pune, Madurai, Trivandrum, Mangalore, Kottayam, Lucknow, Allahabad and Raipur among many others. I have also been fortunate to shoot weddings in the United Kingdom, Singapore and Dubai as well . My photography has been featured in Rolling Stone, Better Photography, Financial Express, The Hindu etc. I love the acoustic guitar and can listen to Pink Floyd all day long. Big Football fan ( Only La Liga and Champions League though). I Love to cook, someday I want to end up becoming Remy from the movie Ratatouille.

Our brilliant photographers Varun Suresh ( shot stories by varun suresh) and Srinivas help us re live the moments and their photos never fail to evoke a sense of fond nostalgia each time we look at them. They made us feel completely at ease and I don't remember having to pose for any photo. It was extremely natural and we had a blast! Source

They captured the perfect moments for us. They believe that bonds are beautiful and it is more beautiful to capture them in real-life settings.They capture memories.

Choosing the photographer was one of the few things I had real control over during my wedding. So, I made my choice carefully. When I was looking at photographers nearly a year ahead of my wedding, Varun's work stood out and spoke for itself. The only thing remaining was to find out whether he'd be the right personality fit for my mostly goofy wedding party. Right from our first email interaction, it became clear that Varun is someone who brings his real self to work everyday. He has one of the best written "here are the details" emails I've ever seen. He tells you what he will and will not be doing up front, and that made it a breeze for me to work with him. The last thing you want when you're trying to wrangle wedding stuff is a vendor who is wishy-washy. We had Varun photograph the mehendi and wedding ceremonies. He was punctual, professional, and 100% present the whole time. He brings valuable experience to the table, and made great suggestions when I was choosing the flower decor, backdrops etc. Being the open and authentic person that he is, it is impossible not to have a great rapport with him. Guests at my wedding thought that Varun was an old friend of mine who also happens to be a great photographer. He has since become a dear friend who guilt trips me about cleaning my desk. We were completely blown away when Varun sent us the pictures afterwards. Our events were pretty intimate, and I was thrilled at how Varun had managed to capture not just me and my husband, but everyone who was there - the entire life of the party. I highly, highly recommend Varun to everyone who is looking for a genuine, warm, funny, and extremely talented human being to photograph their wedding!

One of the best in the business, Varun is your go-to person for pictures you want to hold close to your heart and cherish for a lifetime. His pictures are not pictures alone. They tell stories. They aren't just a visual treat. They are a multi sensory experience. You feel the warmth of the sun, the touch of the breeze, the wafting fragrance of flowers, the movement and the rhythm of the people. Nothing escapes his eye and as he blends to the background, his camera captures every detail from the sublime to the banal giving you pictures that radiate with love and life. Captures the feel brilliantly and he gifts you an evergreen memory of that special day. As authentic and genuine as they come, the rapport he builds with you is not only reflected in his understanding of what you need, but also extends to his becoming a part of your friends and family circle. If you want only the best and you want honesty, beauty, brilliance and warmth, then don't hesitate for a second. Just sign him on. He is simply top class.

Here is a man who knows how to deliver. I had the pleasure of being photographed by him for 2 very different events of my wedding - an intimate engagement at home with a small crowd, and a traditional wedding with large number of guests. His photography was fabulous for both - he captured wonderful personal moments despite the crowded house, and somehow managed to capture the warmest happiest moments of my formal wedding. Everyone in our family absolutely loved the photographs. He is very easy to work with. I was thankful for his clean receipts, e-reminders for payments and the hassle-free and CLEAR coordination via email. I could not have asked for more. Take it from a very happy couple and family - Hire him.

Varun shot our wedding almost nine years ago and he’s been shooting all our important events ever since. We will never tire of his photographs and cannot think of anyone better to be part of our celebrations! Thank you for all the memories Varun, you capture the best of everyone.

Varun is not just your average wedding photographer, he is your bridesmaid-photographer. The day of my wedding would have been a disaster, had it not been for Varun who took the role of my bridesmaids as they got super late. He is no pretense, and the lens through which he sees you is authentic. I feel my wedding was documented in a way that captured the myriad emotions we all were feeling. I get a glimpse of those emotions each time I see the pictures. Imagine the power of his work, it transports you like a time machine. For people who value memories, Varun helps you etch those memories till you get dementia.. Varun, You may not know but you sprinkle some fairy dust of magic in people’s memories :)
