About Us


A Passion turned into Profession, we started Candid Mantra (Sunil Umbre and Smitha Pawar) in the year 2008. A dream come true for us as we traveled across the country to shoot weddings and many appreciation for being the only Husband and Wife photography team.

As a self taught photographer I picked the art while working with professional photographers in United States (New york, New Jersey and Baltimore) . I always had the urge to shoot Indian weddings for its vibrant colors, energy and most importantly the unpredictable moments and expression which is a big challenge to capture and I always look forward to capturing those moments which would be life-long memory of newly wed.
