A CHARLESTON WATERFRONT WEDDING
"Radhika and Ian are two of the most talented people I know and also the BEST decision we made for our wedding. R&I go out of their way to make everything PERFECT. Every communication was prompt, professional, and we knew we had nothing to worry about when our big day came around. We've made lifelong friends through this process and we hope you make YOUR best decision by using them as well."

Multicultural Garden wedding with Fall florals
"Radian Photography was an absolute joy to work with for our wedding. From the first meeting I knew the team would create a welcoming, non-intrusive environment while being able to capture the real essence of the day. What really stood out for me was the personalized experience Radian provides. During the day, they made us feel comfortable and picked locations that turned out beautifully. Once we saw the photos we were so thrilled! We wanted a lot of candid photos to capture the moment, which they definitely delivered on. We 120% recommend working with Radian!"

CANDLELIT CEREMONY AT HEIGHTS HOUSE HOTEL
Drive over the Boylan Bridge in North Carolina, and you’ll see the Heights House between ancient oak trees. An elegant estate welcome you and your wedding guests as you settle in for a weekend of comfort, privacy, and celebration.
Every time we photograph there, we discover more old-world charm and more reasons to fall in love with this property, but Molly and Patrick's wedding gave us one more:
When a huge storm caused the lights to go out just before their ceremony, their team quickly put together an even better plan for their intimate wedding. We think their impromptu candlelit ceremony was in the cards all along.
french vineyard engagement portraits
"We had a fantastic experience working with Radian Photography for our engagement shoot. We laughed endlessly, which helped make session effortless. I love that they shoot both in film and digital to give your album a more dynamic feel. I would absolutely recommend working with them to friends and family - and already have."

sun & surf session
Inspired by the effervescent light and natural beauty of California, Joy and Thibault soaked up the morning sun poolside at The Leta. Palm trees swayed in the breeze and provided shade while this couple relaxed and planned an evening by the shore.
Later, we followed them to the Santa Barbara coast where they explored by the rocks and played in the surf. A perfectly sublime session.

An evening engagement in the city
Designed with Liz and Chad's love for the home they have built together in New York City, we accompanied them on a spring afternoon to see their favorite locales, starting in their gorgeous loft apartment. Featuring stops at a favorite date night restaurant and the waterfront on our walk around their neighborhood, we created fresh imagery full of the warm energy these two exude when together.
India in bloom
In honor of my Indian heritage, I worked with Joy Proctor to create floral inspired ideas for an Indian wedding. The looks featured a fashion forward, whimsical aesthetic using Indian antiques, playful flowers and a muted, yet rich color palette. Design highlights included three fresh floral nose rings and intricate white “henna” on the legs of our bride. Shot against vintage Indian block print fabric and a hand-painted backdrop designed with my grandparents' farm in mind.
CAROLINA GROVE MONET WEDDING EDITORIAL
Inspired by Monet’s Water Lilies, this editorial features a stunning watercolor palette present in the stationery, cake, and a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown. The creative team on this editorial asked what Monet’s painting would have looked like if set in the fall season and designed around that. The resulting images include painterly details and a modern take on Impressionist art.
If you want to remember it, you want Radhika & Ian to be in charge of how you remember it.
