Akash Chokshi

Hi, I’m Akash! I have always been interested in photography and filmography. Taking inspiration from my own interests and being an inherent entrepreneur, I co-founded Happy Soul Films with my partner Monal. I collaborate with all my clients from the very first consultation, understand their requirements and ensure that each film is curated to their vision. In addition to that I focus on building relationships with reputed wedding vendors, orchestrating elaborate e-shoots and providing top notch customer service.

I take a “behind-the-scenes” approach, working to perfect every logistical detail and co-ordinating with all relevant stakeholders so that you can focus on your big day!

We hired Happy Soul films for our wedding event that took place on October 3, 2020. We had such an amazing experience with both Monal and Akash. They took their time to make sure we shot our e-video, they guided us with ideas on where and what we should shoot. 

They made our wedding event super FUN AND UNFORGETTABLE. They were on time for our event and are very professional to work with. We are so excited to get our video and have all the important memories saved and cherished for a lifetime. We would highly recommend hiring Happy Soul Films.

One of the BEST DECISIONS while planning our wedding was to choose Happy Soul Films! We were so nervous about our shoot but Happy Soul Films made the whole process so much fun. They were extremely patient with all our needs and understood exactly what we were looking for. They accommodated our every request and went above and beyond to make sure we had all the shots we wanted. 

Whenever we needed something we could reach them by text or phone right away – they were easily accessible. The final video was INCREDIBLE! They brought out story/vision to life – it was beyond what we had expected. They also coordinated with all our vendors to confirm the timings of our events. This took a huge burden off our plate. We have recommended Happy Soul Films to many of our family and friends and will continue to do so.

We couldn’t have been happier with our decision to choose Happy Soul Films to shoot our wedding and wedding festivities. We were blown away when we saw our same-day edit at our wedding reception. Our guests COULD NOT BELIEVE the quality of production that Happy Soul created for us. Filled with emotions and highlighted moments, our video is a treasured keepsake.

Monal was amazing to work with and his imagination created the perfect vision for our e-shoot and our entrance video.  Monal was game for anything – on our crazy journey, he even met us to get video shots at the Raptors parade!  

- Sharon & Mohan


The entire Happy Soul Film team was very professional and there were no issues in terms of accommodating our event schedules.  Happy Soul Films utilized modern technology and tools, such as drones, to capture every moment perfectly.  All of their staff provided top-quality service.  Happy Soul Films made numerous follow-up edits to our videos without any issues and they were very accessible by text, e-mail or phone. Great, talented professionals to work with throughout the entire process.  

Happy Soul Films has a very UNIQUE style and they worked with us to achieve an end product that captured our amazing wedding memories! We would highly recommended Happy Soul Films, especially Monal, to be a part of your special day!  Thank you again to everyone on the Happy Soul Film team!

Happy souls were a DREAM to work with. We have received so many compliments already just on the same day edit they did for our wedding. They are very responsive and flexible. Monal specifically put in a lot of work for us and made changes based on our preferences.  

Happy Souls provided a very PERSONAL TOUCH that we did not find with any other video vendors in the industry and we highly recommend them.

Happy Soul Films was just amazing. We couldn't have asked for ANY BETTER. Their quality work, customer service, attention to detail, creativity that they brought to the table, their understanding and communication, and the ease of working with them helped us enjoy every moment.

Our Story about

Films & Wedding Industry



Our friendship started back in highschool in 2002 and despite having different educational streams, we remained good friends. In 2012, we were both working in our respective fields when Monal decided to pursue his interest in digital photography and cinematography. Monal started sharing his work and talent on various platforms like YouTube and Snapchat.

Around the same time, I was busy working as an engineer but I was and still am an inherent entrepreneur. My love for photography was always apparent and I often pursued it in my travels. I wondered if there was a way to explore the world of cinematography even more . As fate would have it, I came across a Snapchat from Monal and let’s just say I was absolutely speechless, his work was impressive!

And so began a partnership between myself and Monal, we combined our skills, talents, and interests to create Happy Soul Films. A partnership rooted in our true passions and creativity. Creating Happy Soul Films has been quite the journey for us, we’ve seen it all. From landing our first client from last minute preparations to final edits, from being “the new kids on the block” to establishing our name in the videography industry, we’ve continued to embrace our journey as creative entrepreneurs and storytellers.

Our beliefs are simple, we believe that videography is all about storytelling, we believe that storytelling is all about emotions and connections. We believe in preserving the precious moments of life for years, we believe in celebrating and embracing not just the perfect moments, but the real moments life has for us. We believe in telling your story, just how you imagined it.
