Rashmi Pappu » Photographer

HE SAID, SHE SAID

There is NO ONE like Rashmi!!!
She has the unique ability to capture expressions that are so true and vivid and beautiful that they take your breath away. She frames each shot in a stunning and unique way… and seemingly effortlessly. She is gracious and warm and lovely with children and even my husband who truly hates to have his picture taken enjoyed our time with her. 
I’m so VERY thrilled with how many great shots Rashmi has taken of my sweet baby and of our five year old who seems to get bigger every day. Thank you Rashmi for capturing this precious time in our lives.

Rashmi has been taking photos of my kids since my oldest was 18 months old. She takes the most beautiful pictures of them even when they are melting down! She has a fantastic way not just with kid but with their adults too. Rashmi’s photos are amazing I always tell people that they are a step above everyone else. It’s not just that they are beautiful they have a quality that exceeds everyone. You can’t go wrong with Rashmi she’s the best!

Rashmi has been photographing our family for 6 years.   Even though we’ve moved away, I still hunt her down whenever I’m within a 100 mile radius and beg her to squeeze me in- she’s just that good.  While she has an incredible eye, it is her heart that makes her photos stand out- she loves what she does and it shines through each and every photo we proudly display- the only tough part is figuring out which ones to display!

I had noticed Rashmi’s photographs on Facebook and asked her “Do you do older children?”. She does! And does she ever. My ‘babies’ are 20 and 13 and within a short time they’ll be on their own and not so easy to talk into a ‘weekend in DC with a photo shoot tucked in there’. We will treasure always our time with her as she expertly captured … us. Highly recommended.!

Rashmi has been taking pictures of our family ever since I was pregnant in 2008. We have done several shoots with her & we have been THRILLED with all of the photos! Rashmi is immensely talented, creative, kind, patient, & truly lovely. Her images just blow me away! She is hands-down the BEST in the biz. If anything, she is TOO good at what she does! We can never narrow down our selections, so my husband now calls our house “The Shrine” to my daughter. Rashmi makes everyone feel so at ease, and we aways have so much fun at our photoshoots.  We feel blessed to have had Rashmi capture so many beautiful memories, and freeze so many moments in time for us. Her photos are the most cherished items in our home.

Rashmi has taken photos of our family every year since our son was born. Her talent is unmatched but what my husband and I love most is her ability to capture the souls and personalities of our babies. We are so pleased to have her in our lives and cherish our pictures year after year. An added plus…..the kids LOVE Rashmi!

I was so pleased by the top notch service that Rashmi gave us. Not only was she patient and able to get incredible pictures, but she took the time to make us all feel comfortable. She was able to catch some amazing moments that reflect many memories with my kiddos. And her customer service was top notch. I ordered a canvas that came to me after I moved away to san diego, it wasn’t pulled tight enough and billowed a little on the wall. She replaced it immediately and everyone that walks into the house comments on that picture. It, like many she took, is a keeper. Thank you Rashmi!

 Rashmi took photos of our family on four different occasions. Each time, Rashmi was so calm and easy to talk to. We felt more like we were hanging out and chatting than getting our pictures taken! I was always surprised by the moments that Rashmi captured when I wasn’t even aware she was taking pictures. They were the most stress-free photo sessions ever! We treasure each and every picture that Rashmi took and appreciate her talent so very much.

We have been using Rashmi since 2007 and I not only consider her my go-to photographer, but also my friend.  She is warm and wonderful and even our very shy daughter felt very comfortable with her from the start.  She has a gift of getting kids to do exactly what they need to…smile, look at eachother, whatever it may be, it works every time.  We absolutely love her style, her personality, her creativity, and her super quick photo sessions that don’t drain the kids (or us!), and we can not thank her enough for capturing these priceless memories.

Our experience with Rashmi was a relaxing walk in the park! I was stressed about what my family was going to wear and Rashmi went above and beyond calming my nerves and offering some very great suggestions for outfits. And now, the photos that we have are beautiful keepsakes for our family to treasure years to come.

Rashmi took photos of me & my family when we were expecting our 3rd child. The maternity photos were amazing, especially the ones of my daughter cuddled up to my big, round belly. And our family photo was the best–our kids were 4 yrs & 2yrs old. They were cutting up, acting goofy, and I was ready to call it quits. Rashmi suggested we just go with it. Now we have the best, funniest family photo of everyone laughing with genuine smiles. 5 years later, that photo is still on display in our home! Rashmi also took photos at our birth. I truly treasure the beautiful, tasteful photos of those moments. She quietly captured everything from my husband rubbing my back to my mom reading to the kids as they waited and the exquisite joy on our faces when our precious baby was born.

can honestly say that I think you are the perfect photographer for any pregnant lady! As you know, my husband booked the session as a birthday gift for me when I was 7 months pregnant. I was not a happy camper and did not want to go through with the shoot. But when you arrived, I instantly felt comfortable and you actually got me excited about the end product and the documented memories we would have for a lifetime. Being pregnant is such a blip in life and it is such an important one, that it is important to have lasting memories. You were amazing and I wouldn’t recommend anyone else.

Rashmi gets photographing families!  I was so worried about my 2 boys (4 and 6) ruining pictures with crossed eyes and loose tongues, Rashmi wasn’t.  She worked with the boys asking for faces of superheroes and monsters and then capturing my little monsters and the angels that laughed right after.  All the pictures are full of personality and incredibly beautiful.  She was even able to get a good picture of our little white dog.  We had fun, the boys asked for more and we have the pictures to prove it.

Rashmi was patient, loving, and so fun to work with.  We have worked with her twice and have loved the pictures she has taken of our kids.  Our fondest memory was walking around Old Town where she photographed our daughter pausing to observe everything and anything.  She caught her in her “natural” state.  We will forever treasure our pictures that she took.  She’s the best!
