The Story Monk team was a fantastic find and we are so truly happy they chose us and our wedding celebrations to be told through the Storymonk lens. We could not be happier with the wonderful memories all the pictures and the video helps us go back to. All the pictures and especially those taken during the quirky Saat Vachan ceremony are pure magic. So in true Saat phere style , here are our seven ways the Story Monk team made our world "go round" at the wedding : 1. Honesty at its best - The first two conversations with Shilpi and she had clearly laid out what would be feasible or not (no unnecessary up-selling ..read drone photography!) 2. No Fuss team - The team was super non fussy and if they got impatient due to the long wait / uncooperative aunties , they didn't let it on! :) 3. Attention to detail - We loved how all our favourite memories have been captured (and then some we didn't really expect/recall!). It is unbelievable how much effort goes into it 4. Creative freedom - We didn't ask for conventional and we are so glad our videos have those little quirky moments captured with the bengali song, snoring, Battle of the Haldi et al. 5. Storytelling - We were worried that there may not be enough content for the video and sometimes there was definite crunch of time but we loved the narrative and storytelling through all the content. 6. Love and laughter - We really enjoyed our wedding and we are so glad that all the content is filled with laughter and fun. 7. Shilpi and Kailash - Last but definitely not the least, we truly believe we found friends in the two of them and something we would love to take forward through the years! :) Thank you Story Monk team once again for the magic!

The best part about StoryMonk team is that though they capture the wedding festivities and functions like ninjas and are always in the background - at the same time they are close to you whenever you need them and you really cant distinguish between them and your family and friends. . StoryMonk Team follows utmost professionalism on the job. StoryMonk team's biggest strength is their creativity when clicking a picture. The same picture can be clicked by different photographers but clicking at the right moment capturing the right emotion was what we felt they are the best at. The wedding pictures and videos have come out so well that it is something much m uch more than we expected. Thank you StoryMonk for capturing our wedding and providing us with memorable events forever.

really late review but this had to be done. they deserve the best of words possible for the work they did. Shilpi and Kailash were highly professional in their work and at the same time so affectionate and friendly with not just the bride and groom but the whole family. It was just amazing to see them work so smoothly and happily. I'd definitely recommend them to EVERYONE.

Working with Shilpi-Kailash and their team at Story Monk was an amazing experience. Not only did they provide us with top quality coverage of our wedding but they also became a part of the wedding festivities and added to the entire experience that made it into the fairy tale wedding it was for us. Kailash himself came across as a friendly and patient guy who made all the little tweaks we wanted in the final footage without making a fuss. I would like to highly recommend him to anyone that wants to add a spark to their wedding. Thank you Team Story Monk!! :)

The Story Monk team covered my wedding which included a mehandi ceremony and the wedding itself. It was a pleasure working with this very professional team. My husband I and are camera shy but everyone was very good with making us feel comfortable. The photos are surreal! Such beautiful candid shots of us and the family. I have been receiving compliments about them since they arrived. My parents are especially very impressed by the wedding album. The short trailer video was brilliant. We asked to make a few changes for the long video, since my and my family's song choices are very different from the norm, but the team was very good with accommodating these. I really appreciate the fact that the team was very responsive and good with keeping me updated on the progress of the deliverables. I am glad I chose Story Monk for this big day. Hoping to work with them again in the future!

My wife had chosen Story Monk for our wedding after meeting multiple photographers. During the ceremonies, the team ensured a subtle presence, yet going the extra mile wherever necessary to make sure they captured most intricate details of our wedding. They also did fabulous work on our wedding films. I would recommend them to every couple who is looking for their wedding to be captured in a classy & creative style by warm and friendly artists who are professional to the core. Thanks Shilpi & Kailash for always being accessible and your entire team for such wonderful memories.

We all plan a dreamy wedding in our heads but the reality can turn it all into a high pressure point. Thankfully the one right thing I did from day one was my photography team: Story Monk :) Shilpi was one cool cucumber throughout. I was ecstatic to see the results of their work. Everything went by in such a jiffy during the wedding that it was such a treat to see the moments that were captured by the team. A very patient and friendly team. Thanks for all your effort and hard work from the beginning and thanks for always making time for my calls. Love you guys!

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.

I don't know any other wedding photographer who puts her heart and soul into her work, as much as Shilpi Sharma! She treats every couple differently and focuses on their individuality when capturing moments in the lead-up to and on their big day! Every Indian wedding is beautiful, but it is not the wedding....it is the marriage of two souls that Shilpi captures through her work. It is a moment, and an album to cherish for life!

Having seen Shilpi's work on WedMeGood and her web page prior to finalizing my candid photographer, I was pretty sure what I wanted from my wedding shoot. With so many photographers offering quite the same type of images, I wasn't very sure how and who to trust, living in Australia and managing my wedding planning from across the globe (thank to WedMeGood, I managed well!). Luckily on a short trip to India, I finally decided to meet Shilpi at her studio, discussing our tastes, cultures and expectations; she was the first photographer I met, and I can safely say that I was floored by her work and persona. Shilpi is a delight to work with. Ours was a traditional Muslim wedding, and she captured all the moments impeccably! I'm in love with her work, and her eye for tiny details, emotions, and traditions that make up a typical Indian wedding. The photographs were delivered on time, and were flawless, to say the least. I would definitely recommend Shilpi for anyone who needs a professional wedding photographer, to capture moments that will truly live for ever! Thanks a bunch Shilpi. It was a pleasure working with you :)
