Kind Words from our Portrait and Corporate Clients
We get to meet so many amazing people in front of our lenses and are lucky to keep getting clients that we love! A few of them have taken the time to say a few kind words and we are forever grateful to have the opportunity to share our visions with them:
Sophie Wardlow – Modeling Portfolio Building Photoshoots, Reading & London, UK
“My greatest compliments to these lovely people! They are an absolutely wonderful couple and company to work with. Having shot twice (one very recently) with them, I can safely say that I have not felt this comfortable on a shoot in all my years of modelling. The mood on location / in the studio is nothing but positive, ‘alive’ and productive. The results? Well take a look for yourselves! The images are incredible and the quality just beautiful – the turn around with getting them back to you extremely quick! Talk about a confidence boost! I would definitely recommend working with these guys – if you get the chance GRAB IT! :D”
Harjit Dhillon – Family Portraits Photography – Reading, Wokingham – May 2015
“Superb service, great photographs. Sharan and Sunny made us all feel very comfortable, whilst taking some exceptional shots in a challenging environment. Cant wait to see the final prints up on the walls.”
Stacey Ellingham – Children’s Portraits Sunset Photography Experience – Marlow, South Buckinghamshire – April 2015
“Absolutely brilliant. Stunning photos. Very kind, considerate and friendly.”
Micki Baxter – Women’s Makeover Photoshoot – Reading, Wokingham, June 2014
“Hi Sharan – thank you so much for the photos. It’s been a long time since I had the thrill/dread of looking at new pro photos of myself. Wow… you did great. I love 28 – I see the real me there – well except I never wear a flower in my hair… ;o) Everyone wants to GROW old, but no one wants to BE old. Thanks for making me look beautiful. Thanks again for your time and a fun day out. Micki xox”
Harj Kaur – Family Portraits Photography – Reading, Wokingham – May 2015
“Wow Sunny & Sharan! I knew you guys were talented but I somehow didn’t expect my own family photographs to come out so beautifully but they were better than we imagined, we’re all so impressed! You made us look amazing!! Amazing photography and I have never received so many likes and comments on Facebook haha! So excited to see the printed finals! Thank you!!”

Sharan Rai Dhaliwal captures your memories, dreams & magic moments in print so that they stay on even when the time has passed. She & her film-maker husband, Sunny Dhaliwal, understand what it means to create magic with their cameras; whether it’s at their popular Sunset Photoshoots for your family or children, a couple’s photoshoot to mark any point in your relationship, professional business headshot photographs to enhance your online presence or their stunning fashion photography shoots. They run Sharan Rai Photography, a place where Sharan + Sunny help take their clients’ beautiful memories and immortalise them in print, edited with their own artistic, dreamy style.
From our fully-equipped studios and a variety of stunning nearby locations around Berkshire and Buckinghamshire, we provide affordable, reliable and professional photography and film services to the local region. Between us, we have studied with the best fashion photographers in the world, including Emily Soto and Miss Aniela, and studied Film Making from world class teachers at the New York Film Academy, so local photographers Sunny and Sharan can make even a family portrait look like a cinematic, visual treat.
We’re portrait specialists and can bring out the magic in any occasion, so let us bring a touch of magic and wonder to your family portrait. Let’s be honest, kids grow up so fast that it seems you could blink and miss it. And while you’ll never forget that moment you held your child in your arms for the first time, a beautifully shot photograph of your child in the first days will always bring those big moments flooding back.
We offer family portraits and newborn photography services that will give you a unique, precious, priceless and tangible memory of your family.
If you’re preparing for your wedding day, or even a Diamond Anniversary, we can also spend the time to come up with stunning couples’ photography sessions to commemorate your love for each other.
We also do memorable women’s makeover photoshoots that ladies love! We can arrange a pamper day and a set of prints that will make you feel like a million dollars. It’s a perfect present for a loved one, or even for yourself, and previous clients have told us they can’t believe it’s them when they see the pictures for the first time with your local photographer. Whether you’re a busy mum, 50 and fabulous, a curvy lady or just fancy a treat, these shoots are a real confidence boost as we show you the beauty we see in you.
If you need a business headshot, or you’re an actor, dancer or model that relies on that killer first impression to secure a casting, then we can help too. Of course we can do traditional, but we can also offer you dazzling insights from the fashion world that will help your pictures stand out. We bring that same creative vision to events photography, too, so your corporate event or women’s makeover photoshoot can get a sprinkling of glamorous Hollywood magic.
Of course, having studied as a fashion photographer and Cinematographer, Sharan and Sunny can work together to offer the very best service for upcoming brands and designers that have to show their wares off to their best ability, even to get through the door of a big meeting.
Based in Winnersh, we are the local photographer of choice for Wokingham, Reading, Marlow, Henley-on-Thames, Maidenhead, Sonning, Caversham, West Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire.
Let us bring our creative vision, style and sophisticated look to your portrait and special occasion.
