Husband and Wife Photographer Team

rachel and nirzhar: orange county photographersWe’re Pradhan Studios, a husband-and-wife team that loves being just that – husband and wife – and photographers, designers and artists. We have two awesome, amazing boys, too. We met while we were both working at a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado – when Rachel was a lost-in-her-paintbrushes and camera high-school senior, and Nirzhar was a Nepali-boy working his way through college. It was love at first flirtatious look, and over 15 years and two handsome boys later, we’re still very much in love.

For over 10 years we’ve been professional designers, photographers and artists and this ‘eye’ for design and style has lead us to capture and create elegant black and white photographs for children, families, and events. On each shoot you’ll get both of us – a true team that works together to capture your moments.

It’s this love that has brought us to start Pradhan Studios, a portrait photography studio in Orange County, California.
