I love my clients and they love me.
Yes, it will take time and effort to go through this rather long list of pretty long testimonials from my friends (former clients) but reading these is the only way to know beforehand, what working with me feels like.
Throughout the process he was professional, punctual, polite and very approachable. At the end of our journey he became our friend. We were extremely happy with the experience Manas provided us and importantly his photos were amazing and exactly if not better than what we had expected! One would be missing out not having the fortune of Manas's services. Great job buddy and thanks again."
The best thing that can be said about Manas, though, is that everything that you see at first, truly is what you get. It really is how he describes his work on the website - pictures that capture moments that successfully take you through the events of the day and help you connect the dots on things you may have missed out on the big day among the chaos. Thank you, Manas! For everything right from the day we got in touch, for being the invisible photographer on the wedding day, for working with our folks, for sticking to your promises and finally for the most awesome photographs!"
I shared the pictures with my family and close friends. Some of the feedback I have been getting is - very well covered, the emotions are very well captured, some of Darshan's expressions captured during the mehendi/sangeet are priceless ( said by my mom especially), a job well done and totally worth the money that was spent. Everyone is very happy with the outcome. I am extremely happy with the way some of the best moments of my life will be preserved forever.
I love the couple shoot pictures as well. I will definitely be framing a couple of them.
I really can't thank you enough :) Again I am so glad I found you! "
The photos are much more than we were expecting! You captured the most amazing little moments between people and thats exactly what it was all about. I showed the story to a couple of people already and they cant stop looking at it over and over again. So many people have been telling us how amazing the photos have come out and how its captured the essence of the day.
After all the ruckus, our wedding was more perfect than we could have ever imagined in so many ways. So many people came up to us and told us how much their thought processes and priorities about weddings have been shifted. The things we set out to do actually ended up being accomplished and you helped us capture all that. Whenever we look back at those pics, everyone talks about so many other things that actually matter instead of how beautiful the venue is, or how nice the clothes look or how decked up people are in gold..We were talking about how even though all the things around us were so simple and basic, you made them beautiful. And we were so right about the fact that if we had used any other photographer, it would have looked dingy and run down. But you brought out the beauty of even the simplest things that day.
So, thank you thank you thank you so much!!
We really appreciated the photos and are totally in love with them :-)"
Starting from my first email checking availability till the end of photo shoot and delivery of photos, there wasn't even one moment where we weren't happy with him or his work. We met for coffee to discuss what we were looking for before the wedding, and it felt like we were with a friend we had known for years! He is very personable! The entire day of our wedding he was very respectful of our space and of our schedule. He was on time, explained his style of work ahead of time, shot the wedding wihtout nearly being noticed. He also accommodated an extra little photo shoot that we wanted around Bangalore during the short time we were in town!
He finished our pictures far ahead of schedule and they turned out beautifully; our family, friends, and we are very happy with the pictures. Samantha's family wasn't able to attend the marriage, so the pictures he captured were very precious to them to experience the day.
I would highly recommend Manas to anyone seeking a wedding photographer! "
I am a Hindu married to a Christian. Manas captured the cultural and traditional blends in our wedding beautifully.I am glad that Savio and I chose him as our wedding photographer. He is very professional and genuine at the same time. He took a sincere effort to know us before deciding to take up the assignment. The elderly members of the family adored him. And if you are the bride, rest assured that he will keep showering you with warm compliments. Savio and I wish Manas the very best in all his future assignments!"
We are thankful to have come across Manas and very glad that we rightfully chose him for our special day.
Thank you for the wonderful pictures. Hope you guys have more exciting and wonderful journeys ahead. Cheers!!"
During the wedding Manas was pretty much like a friend and a family member. The photoshoot was so much of fun, that we could forget all the drama that exists in weddings. His eye for location and knowledge of photography is second to none. While shooting the wedding he did his work without disturbing anyone. It felt like he was just absent and we could do our own thing instead of posing (extremely professional!!!).
Ours was a shorter telugu wedding and Manas understood that, and was more than happy to shoot pictures of just us at locations where we wanted. Oh yes there are memories from his images that make us remember of the fun times during the wedding, as well as what we missed. The pictures were delivered on time and were truly outstanding. Thank you Manas!"
The one beautiful thing I like about your art is how you capture the act of the moment. I was observing one particular picture you took of the maruvedu where after the gifts were given people were busy guessing what was inside it. If it was not captured the way you did , it would have looked more like a bunch of people standing together. The North and South cultures are so beautifully captured and this one thing both Prakash and I wanted to come alive in every photograph.
One more thing that I totally appreciate is how you became a part of the family. Just made me feel a bit relaxed because of all that was happening around me. I knew I will not be able to attend to you.
Anyone who sees the pictures tells us that they relived the wedding all over again. That’s a compliment to us and to you. Parkash and I are extremely thankful to you for making our day such a beautiful and colorful memory. I hope we have been able to make you feel at home with us. We definitely want you to be more than just our wedding photographer."
Equally important (for us, at least), he wasn't like the traditional wedding photographers who end up being the center of attention themselves. He was always there in the background without making a fuss or demanding that we stop doing what we were doing for a photo or that the lighting be adjusted for him etc. He got along well with our family and friends and everyone was quite comfortable having him around - another important consideration for us.
All in all, we had a fabulous experience with Manas and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a classy wedding photographer!"
Also, we LOVED the candid shots you took of Akshay and me soaking in the happiness (especially that hugging wala B&W pic) after we were back from the religious ceremony."
Thank you for making two people who are totally not comfortable with the camera look nothing like it and making those pictures look the best they can be."
Raghu and I really appreciate your unobtrusive way and we really felt that you cared and listened! You definitely have an eye for photography, which only a very few professional photographers have. Every time I look through the pictures, it is just like my wedding day all over again. You have captured the happiness and emotions beautifully.
Thank you more than words can say!"
All the pictures look stunning and truly brings out the essence of our relationship - Love, fun and whole lot of goofiness! These are moments we will cherish many years down the line and I want to thank you for capturing all those memories! Thank you so much for the lovely pictures!"
We loved the fact that he understood what we expected of our pictures and he delivered it. The pictures were vibrant and captured every worthy moment of our wedding. The delivery of the album and the soft copies was on time, shipped all the way from India to the US and we really appreciate that. The album by itself is gorgeous and smells wonderful. ;)
I will just end this review by saying that not a lot of people give you a sense of assurance about your choice but with Manas, the day we booked him, we felt we had nothing to worry about and we never had to."
Let me add a bit of history to this... When we started looking out for our wedding photographer we went through lot of guys out there in the market. Many one-one sessions. Manas was the Fifth guy we spoke with. Manas Online pictures appealed us a lot and specially his "who should hire you section". After having a conversation with him, we just clicked. Even though i had few more people in list to contact to, i knew i have made right decision and went ahead with Manas.
Day of wedding, he was on-time and stayed till all our rituals were done on time. He is very friendly to work with and main thing very comfortable. He is not a kind of guy who will ask you to pose around, very natural photographer and doesn't miss those happy moments :)
Final outcome of our pictures were brilliant as expected. If you have any second thoughts on your mind for selecting Manas, just ignore them and go for him. I am sure few days later you will end up writing a review like this on his wall!"
The pictures that Manas took truly captured the essence of the wedding and of Viraj and me. The minute I saw the pics, I could not wait to share them with every one I know. The gorgeous pictures set in an even more gorgeous album currently take center stage in my new marital home. I'm sure that over the years, these pictures will make it so easy to relive the fun and frolic of the most exciting days of my life."
It was really great to have you as a part of our celebrations. You were really nice to work with.
It was a very good meeting of minds and am glad that the outcome reflects that. Thanks a bunch man! All the best for your future endeavors."
