MEET radhika

hello there

What that means for you:

some quality down time, even if it's just sitting quietly together with Ian. My favorite memories involve people watching over coffee while on adventures in foreign countries.

From nuptials to newborns, I am cheering you on the whole time, watching for the moments that belong uniquely to you and documenting them for the you that exists now... and 50 years from now.

MEET Ian

hello there

What that means for you:

new experiences in places I've never been before. I'm an expert at finding obscure (and delicious) restaurants for date night, even though I never get to choose the movie after.

From your first look to your last dance, throughout the process of working together, I push you to dig deep, to notice the small awe-filled moments that you won't want to forget.

We selected Radian Photography for our engagement photos and they exceeded our expectations! The entire process, from booking to receiving our final shots,  was seamless and enjoyable. We were nervous the day of the shoot, but they immediately put us at ease and helped us remember why we're doing these shots in the first place.

THE REVIEWS

Radhika and Ian are extremely professional and do quality work. We ended up with countless photos of such amazing quality that it was difficult to choose when it came time to pick out one for our save-the-date. They have an awesome dynamic that brought out the best in us. We will cherish the photos we got forever.

"of all the things we did for our wedding, the photo shoot was by far the most fun and memorable."
