When I first started wedding photography way back in 2008, I used to be a one man army. I didn’t have an office, I didn’t have a team and I didn’t have my trusty partner in crime – Praerna – who at the time was still a part of the advertising world. Over time, Praerna joined me and we started shooting weddings together. We used to work from home, had a spare bedroom converted into a makeshift studio and met clients in coffee shops. Over time we shifted to our first studio in Shahpur Jat, and started slowly building from there.
Fast forward to 2017, we now operate from a 3000 square feet studio in Gurgaon, and now have everything needed to create timeless wedding stories using both still images and moving images in-house. So much has changed since we first started, and but yet again, so much is still the same. At SILK Inspire this year, I spoke a lot about the importance of a name – and what your brand actually stands for. I now realise that we’ve outgrown the brand name “Arjun Kartha” – we needed a name that reflected our core values: that we are a small family business that works with other families. We are a couple who shoots couples. A brand that conveys that we are a highly motivated team of individuals that are passionate about crafting love stories that are born from our love for photography. Choosing a name was one of the hardest decisions we’ve ever had to make – we agonised over it for months before finding something that we loved and knew it was “us”.
Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to announce that we are now called Twogether Studios. A team of photographers and cinematographers led by a couple, shooting couples. Our work continues to remain what we’ve always stood for – fun, off-beat and timeless memories from weddings that are rooted in love, friendship and family.
Dear reader – thank you for being a part of our journey. The last nine years have been a roller coaster of a journey, and I can’t wait to see where the next nine years take us.
PS: This website will still be called http://www.arjunkarthaphotography.com due to the complexity of moving to a new domain name. In the meanwhile, we’ve also made http://twogetherstudios.in – which will serve as a redirect to this website! Our Instagram handle is now @twogetherstudios.in (from @arjunkartha) – but it’s still the same account. We’re also trying to get our Facebook page updated from http://facebook.com/ArjunKarthaPhotography to the new name – that’s going to happen soon! If you don’t yet, join us there too!
