Charcoal & Vermillion was founded by Avismita and Debarshi in the year 2019, and they firmly believe in contemporary storytelling, which will preserve every piece of memory in a wedding through their photographic and cine art.
Avismita was born and brought up in Malda, West Bengal where she completed her schooling, post that she received her undergrad degree in Geography from Calcutta in the year 2010. In the following years, she took up the full-time job of a teacher in one of the leading schools in the town. She then left school and decided to join the banking sector in the year 2015, but within a year she enrolled herself in the diploma of photography (with a specialization in studio light) which became a life-changing decision for her.
Since she had a huge inclination towards photography, she decided to rewrite her journey and started working as a lifestyle photographer in one the leading Bengali magazines where she got her first tryst with people and fashion photography. Along with this, she was doing her freelancing in wedding photography for almost a year where she got exposure to various leads and ideas which later helped to incept her own company.
And this gave birth to her brainchild CHARCOAL & VERMILLION in the year 2019 partnering with her best friend now her beloved husband, Debarshi Das. Since then, both have been full-time wedding photographers traveling across India to capture those timeless moments in varied cross-culture weddings.
Being in the wedding photography industry for more than 6 years, we are trying to innovate our style of photography and incorporate concepts of the street and photojournalistic approach with the nuance of emotions and drama. Today, when we travel back in time, we always think about our decision to leave behind the lavish job. God has a different and unique plan for those who dream beyond their routine lifestyle.
As photographers and visual storytellers, we continue to find frames of different flavours amalgamated with feelings, sentiments, and emotional moments. Whenever we get time from our busy schedule, we travel to refresh our mind enjoying the beautiful landscape, people, and their culture of our planet Earth. We believe in a thought process that the whole world around us is a frame, and we must keep our eyes and viewfinders wide open to capture the best of emotions and drama.
