They immediately made my husband and me comfortable in front of the camera--which we were not necessarily so otherwise! Both photographers were warm and caring, talented and friendly. One hundred percent recommend! this amazing team!

"Radian photography is a beautiful duo of professionalism and down-to-earth approachability"

from Susanna & Barrett


Radhika and Ian did a spectacular job. Great mix of posed and candid photos, as well as serious and silly ones. Many of the shots looked like they could have been in a bridal magazine--top notch!

"Even months after our wedding, we still keep getting compliments about our engagement and wedding photos."

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.

"Their love for each other is authentic and helped ours come through in our own photos."

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."
