Wedding PhotographsEverything for your D Day is finalized…the clothes, the menu, the decoration, the entertainment…just about everything but what about the photographer? Photographer? You may ask what is so great in deciding about a photographer? But give a second thought to it. Well the Indians settled in the West at least do since there a wedding photographer is just not any other photographer but he is considered a ‘Memory Maker’.

In India people normally opt for local photographers to capture the memories of their special day; in the West the scenario is pretty much different. There, great wedding photography is about capturing the emotion and passion of the day as it is… Photographs that deal in elements, moods and emotions are in great demand. No high-level drama or theme-based album.

Presenting the work of wedding photographer: Manish Malwani, who lives in New York, but travels extensively for his work. Says Manish, “I specialize in Indian wedding photography, Indian weddings are full of emotion and provide endless visual opportunities. Opportunities that I hope to capture. In America, the bride and groom prefer a photographer who is least obstructive. About 95 percent of photographs are shot in a photojournalistic way. Only 5 percent of images are shot where they know the photographer is taking the shot.
 
But even those shots are done in such a way that they do not look posed. Wedding photography is more like sports photography in America. The photographer has to be ready all the time, he absolutely has no control. As far as albums go, according to him simple leather albums are preferred.

No elaboration or decoration of any sought on the cover or within. Surprisingly, while many of the albums have colour images, which usually make the parents happy, the real emotion and feelings are captured by black and white and infrared film.

In today’s market you cannot be hired as a photographer if you do not have a good black and white photo portfolio to show to the bride. As a professional there are 4 things necessary for a photographer to do before the wedding. Check the location out before the wedding.

Creating indoor images is very different from creating outdoor images. Also it’s very important that if it rains the photographer has waterproof equipment. The excuse that since it was raining I did not shoot the outside is not acceptable. It’s also important that you have enough back up equipment. And also a very talented assistant who knows a lot about photography.

I shoot around 1000 photos per wedding but my goal is to take as many shots as possible and then later let the client choose how many pictures he wants to put in the main album. An average photographer charges $5000 to $ 9000 for a day so financially it is a rewarding profession.”
