About

Hi, I’m Hari.

After working in tech for many years, I decided to go out on my own and work at something that I find more personally fulfilling. Photography is that thing for me – the thing I love, the thing I’m great at, and what I want to share with the whole world.

My dream is to help families capture and share their love, and in doing so to add a little beauty back into the world. I shoot on-location and mostly with natural light because I love the ambiance and character that we can create this way. I’m always on the lookout for moments that show the connection between people, and where individual personalities shine through.

I look forward to helping you capture and share your family love! Send your ideas to info at wildplumphotography dot com, or use the contact page to get in touch.

Why the name Wild Plum?

I’ve always been inspired by nature and I love being outside. Growing up, I loved climbing the plum trees in my backyard in Berkeley, playing in the treehouse, picking (and sometimes throwing) fruit, and generally causing mayhem. I wanted a name that would convey the excitement and freedom of being young and outside, and also have some personal significance. Enter the wild plum — a California native (like me), smaller than the regular plum (I prefer “petite”) and a little more tart (um, no comment).
