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.

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 :)

The easiest part about planning the wedding was the photography. We probably shared just couple of mails before the wedding as he knew exactly what had to be done at the wedding. He did a wonderful job at the mehendi and wedding and managed to capture the minutest of the details. My favorite photograph is where I was winking at my dad during the muhurtam and he somehow managed to capture it. Varun showed up on time, did a tremendous job and delivered high quality photos. All this without any fuss. I would highly recommend him for your wedding.

My first wedding anniversary is just around the corner and the timing seems apt to shower my (only) favourite photographer with long overdue words of praise. Good photos are those that stand the test of time; good photos keep your memories from running away. Varun?s eye captures all of the right moments. Look through my wedding album and you won?t just know how everything looked but you?ll know how it felt. And that alone is my recommendation for Varun. Also, it really doesn?t hurt that he makes for good company, some good advice and a few good laughs. I should also add, I LOVE how my photos were edited. I love that they look real, rich colours and fine details. And amidst all the chaos that makes a telugu-brahmin wedding, I love the memories he manage to freeze in time for me. Maybe there?s a lot more I can recommend Varun for :) So thank you Verun, for being part of my story and the beautiful photographs.

When we decided to get engaged, The First thing we wanted is to have Varun as the photographer. With the work he has done, we knew we've chosen the right photographer. He captures the way just they are. That way, the photos turned out to be truly amazing.We can't thank him enough for all the beautiful pictures. Each time we look at them , we time travel to the day filled with these wonderful emotions. Most importantly, he is super friendly to work with.

When I was planning my Chennai wedding from Australia the one thing I was most particular about was the photographer. I wanted someone who would capture the events in a modern and artistic way. I couldn't have been happier to have found and chosen Varun as our photographer. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and from our experience we've become good friends! He listened to what we wanted and then seamlessly fit into the wedding events capturing everything with such attention to detail and flair. All my family and friends who saw the photos were blown away and thought Varun did such an incredible job. It was such a big wedding for me and my family and I just could not be happier to have a beautiful set of photos that I'll treasure forever. Thanks Varun!!!

When I decided I am getting married, the first person's calendar I blocked was Varun. It was such a pleasure to have Varun shoot the wedding. Both me and my husband wanted very natural looking pictures that we could look at 10 years later and relive the moments and that is exactly what we got!

Varun is an incredibly talented photographer with an uncanny knack to keep pictures natural, yet beautiful in a day and age of excessive photoshop skills. His black and white images are truly classic and elegant. Awesome pictures aside, his affable personality makes him a delight to work with. Will recommend Varun hands down! Amidst the lengthy to-do lists you might have for your event, ticking off "gorgeous pictures" will be a breeze if you have Varun behind the lens:-) Keep up the good work Varun and wish you all success!

Very professional and a pleasure to work with. Right from the first communication to the actual day, editing and delivery, the entire process was so seamless. He makes you feel so at ease and makes you so comfortable with yourself. Perfectly captures those rare emotional moments. Very creative approach to what he photographs, and how he frames each shot. loved the mood and colours! 5 stars!Source

Our pictures by by Varun were very good. They looked natural, candid and reflected the mood of all the events and people. Rolls N Reels did an exceptional job capturing the engagement ceremony and the pre-wedding photoshoot.Source
