Enamour Photography Proves That Two Photographers Are Better Than One

By Kelly Church

Most wedding receptions only get covered by one photographer. At Enamour Photography of Freemont, however, owners Logesh and Rachel Kumaar firmly believe in teamwork. Since 2015 the couple has been combining their talents to capture those hidden moments during weddings that solo photographers can miss. The partnership is paying off; their business has been featured on The Knot and consistently racks up five-star reviews from satisfied clients.

"We work really well as a team," Kumaar said. "We definitely compliment each other's strengths and weakness. While I focus on the overall 'big picture', Rachel is constantly eyeing all the little details that pull the picture together. The most enjoyable part of working together is getting to spend so much quality time together, as well as share in the same vision and purpose."

Photography has been a passion for the Kumaars since a young age. Under the tutelage of his father, Logesh learned the wedding photography business while still in high school in his native country, Malaysia. San Francisco-born Rachel discovered early on that photography gave her a way of connecting with others and sharing the happiness in their lives. After the couple met and married, they both knew a wedding photography business would continue to fuel their passion for capturing love stories on film.

The couple describe their style as photojournalism, and are quick to point out that the term doesn't apply just to jet setting photographers that work for magazines.

"When you look at our photos from the beginning of the day through the end of the day, it tells a cohesive story," Kumaar said. "It is not simply a collection of snapshots; it follows the storyline of the wedding and gives the viewer the perspective that they were actually there experiencing the day unfold."

The Kumaars prefer to blend into the background during every phase of the big wedding day, so that guests won't even notice that they're present. One of the features that sets their business apart from others is the fact they don't charge clients by the hour for their services. There is no time limit required, and the fee covers the getting ready period, the after party, and thus the entire experience. Kumaar explains that this often creates more candid and relaxed shots. Although the couple prefers to keep a session a two-person job, on occasion they've brought in a partner photographer depending on the type of wedding. Every wedding photography package also includes a complimentary lifestyle engagement session.

Enamour Photography can travel to destination weddings and also shoots family portraits, headshots, fashion modeling, birthdays, and just about any subject. For a fun addition to any event, photo booths are available accompanied by fun backdrops and props to make any gathering interactive and memorable.

Although the Kumaars don't make their presence too noticeable during a wedding, they somehow manage to get to know their clients and leave an assignment feeling like they've known them their whole lives.

"We have the very unique opportunity to spend the most amount of time with the bride and groom, compared to everyone else," Kumaar said. "We are there for all the laughter, all the tears, all the tender moments. At the end of the wedding, we leave feeling like we just saw our good friends get married, rather than just clients that hired us for the day."
