From holding a passion for Travel, Wildlife and Street-photography to becoming professional Wedding Photographers, the story of The Story Folks is an interesting one.
Former marketing and media professionals, Kanupriya and Parag were bitten by the travel and photography bug very early on. This wife-husband duo always managed to balance their previous corporate work-life and creative pursuits on their many travels together and channelled their creativity into making photos of the amazing places and adventures they explored together. It only took one wedding to change all of that. The joy of capturing special moments at their dear friend's wedding coupled with the delighted responses of the bride and groom and their families helped Kanupriya and Parag rethink their career and life plans.
In the years since, Fotowalle - The Story Folks, co-founded by Kanupriya and Parag Aurora, has grown to become a team of one of India's most talented and sought-after wedding photographers and cinematographers who have shot over 11 countries and 4 continents.
“We understand the essence of a wedding story, the importance of documenting real moments and the value of capturing memories that go down generations”
With over ten years of creative experience, Kanupriya and Parag understand the importance of not only the grand moments of a wedding but also the sweet, unscripted, real emotional moments of that special day.
“While we have a super time capturing a breath taking bride entry, a majestic varmala, a dreamy and romantic exchange of rings, the classic family portraits, but, it’s the more intimate and real moments - such as the groom hugging his grandmother or the bride wiping off tears on her father’s cheek or best friends sharing a crazy moment on the dance floor – these are the moments we live for!
It’s these authentic moments and genuine interactions between the bride, groom and their families that give each wedding its unique characteristic.
For us, every wedding is a unique story, brimming with such precious raw moments that should be dearly treasured, for, today’s moments are tomorrow’s memories. Memories that go down generations. Memories to be preserved for eternity.
We feel honoured that our Clients and their families from across the globe entrust us to document their special day. The happiness, excitement and amazement of our brides, grooms and their families when they see their wedding photographs and videos gives us a high like no other! This is the reason why we became wedding story tellers and nothing comes close to it!"
We have a non-intrusive approach that helps us capture the spontaneity and the natural vibe of each wedding. Our sense of humour combined with the sensitivity towards each situation, helps build an amazing rapport and chemistry with the soon-to-be-married Couple, their families, friends and guests. It is this approach, which is key to the comfort the bride groom and everyone share with the Fotowalle team throughout the wedding celebrations.
We combine the creative candid and classic wedding photography styles to make a range of spontaneous, fun and crazy action shots at the same time capturing timeless, natural couple portraits and classic family pictures.
Having covered over 150 weddings across 11 countries and 4 continents, Kanupriya and Parag's storytelling journey has taken them to some of the most pristine corners of the world. In the process, they have captured love stories that transcend all barriers of language, geography, and cultures. Be it a thematic Destination Wedding in an undiscovered corner of the world or a big fat Indian wedding bash in your city, trust the Fotowalle team to give you a bespoke and customised wedding story delivered to perfection.
