“Capturing personalities, not pictures”


Hello, My name is Chetan Patel - most people call me “Chet”. I have to admit I'm really not that great at talking about myself. I've always been more of a visual person. Although I have a 9-5 job, photography has always been my passion. Through photography, I can capture raw emotions and feelings that I sometimes have a difficulty describing in words.

My approach to photography tends to vary depending on your preference and the mood we‘re trying to capture. I shoot on-location and mostly with natural light because I love the ambiance and character that it creates.

I primarily work with families and children, and also shoot special milestones such as engagements, anniversaries, maternity and birthdays capturing life’s special moments. My observation and focus involves seeing the connection between individuals and bringing their personalities to the surface!


"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have captured last forever... it remembers the little things, long after you have forgotten everything"
