Since, I am not a big fan of the endless wedding rituals with larger than life ceremonies and just wanted to enjoy the company of my friends and family along with my wife, I was bowled over to see how team Story Monk managed to capture the emotions and energy through their photography & wedding film. In my search for a like-minded team for our kind of wedding, my wife came across Story Monk. They are a bunch of easy-going grounded people with such a simplistic approach but artistic results. It's amazing to see the amount of passion and professionalism that we experienced while working with Story Monk. The way their team scouted locations during our wedding for quick couple portraits given the time crunch and also built on ideas with their creativity and their personalities on our wedding film. Thanks guys for capturing the true essence of our wedding ceremonies and your friendly approach that made everything look so effortless. I will most certainly rate Story Monk as one of the best wedding photographers in India. Kudos!

When my husband and I started our hunt for "the" wedding photographer, we wrote to a zillion photographers, but swear to God, met just one - Story Monk. And that was it. We fell in love with Shilpi and Kailash at our very first meeting. Our brief to them was simple - our's will be a mad, rushed, OTT, drunk wedding. Did they capture the madness? Absolutely. Would i recommend them? Hell yes!! The pictures have come out great, the wedding teaser - uh-amazing!! 10/10 across absolutely all aspects - professionalism, creativity, quality of work... AND patience! Thank you guys, our wedding wouldn't have been captured this beautifully by anyone else!

My husband and I live in the US but we decided to get married the traditional way in India. Since I'm from Delhi, I came back home and took up the wedding planning project. I knew where to look for all other elements of the wedding but had absolutely no clue which photographer is good. I would browse and look through a lot of photographer profiles but none of them covered small, intimate weddings. Thankfully I came across Story Monk's profile and saw a mix of small and big weddings they have covered. Communicating with Shilpi was never an issue, she listened to my requirements and delivered the exact results we were expecting. Kailash and Shilpi both captured our wedding beautifully, and looking at our photo album is like looking at a chronicled story of the events as they happened that day. They really didn't miss any moment! Thank you guys for capturing our special day and making it even more memorable

Our wedding was very different from the traditional Indian destination weddings. We had recieved the best recommendation from our friends for Story Monk. What we loved about their photos was the vibrancy and the way they captured emotions! Shilpi & Kailash became like friends and were able to capture all the emotions without feeling that we were having a photo shoot. Shilpi was super helpful since my first round of call to her and took the time to explain all the small details to me. Despite the fact that I am based in London, communication was easy and fast. They made every effort to understand what we wanted. In love with the team and their work.

The Story Monk team was the best wedding photography team I have ever come across, especially for the kind of photos my wife and I were looking for--casual, intimate, and eye-catching. The team came and did their work unobtrusively, but never missed a single important moment during the wedding. And, as a final cherry on the cake, they worked hard to come up with an experimental concept wedding video that captured the essence of our wedding perfectly! We would wholeheartedly recommend Story Monk for your wedding!

Shilpi and Kailash almost became a part of our family during the wedding shoot. A fun loving duo with immense patience. They were sensitive to capture unexpected emotions which will be cherished forever. Their timely delivery and being attentive to little details that were expressed to them, were all taken care of. It was great to see how they stayed true to their art and craft while ensuring that we are left with a treasure of visual memories of the chaotic BIG day. Best team ever!

Working with the Story Monk team has been an absolute delight. They were professional, efficient, friendly and most importantly, took the most fabulous photographs of our wedding. Working with a camera shy/awkward person is no mean feat and quite the testament to them being a master of their craft. The photographs are wonderful and truly seize the essence of our wedding. Instead of the conventional poses, we wanted the natural fun and excitement to be documented, which they have done brilliantly. Their ability to be unobtrusive and yet not to miss a moment is incredible. All our memories have been captured perfectly from start to finish and looking at them is like reliving the days. Communication leading up to our wedding was efficient and prompt which was important as we were great many miles away in London. They have been very accessible and efficient from the initial inquiry through to the big day and right up to the post wedding correspondence. We both really enjoyed their company and it was a pleasure to have them around. We know many of our guests felt the same way. Story Monk was one of the best decisions we made with regards to our wedding. We couldn’t rate them higher enough. Thank you so much from both of us. We’ll treasure your work forever.

I was extremely impressed with Shilpi Sharma and her team's efforts in delivering a great service at my wedding. I was especially pleased with the candid and unexpected moments they were able to capture-- I should have asked her to do my pre-wedding shoot as well ! I highly recommend Story Monk !

We had a wonderful experience with Shilpi and her team at Story Monk. They were thorough professionals and our whole process from the pre-wedding shoot to the beautiful album they delivered was smooth and effortless. We loved our wedding and Sangeet pictures, they were vibrant and stylish. I would gladly recommend Shilpi and Story Monk for weddings. They were a pleasure to work with.
