For over three and a half decades, he's been on the lookout for that magical frame or perfect angle or a rare display of emotion covering more than "5000" weddings!
He is Manoharan, the wedding photographer of Kochi.
Started clicking with a Click III camera from his early teenage, Manoharan had focused into wedding photography from the beginning itself. He had the privilege of taking photos in celebrated venues like palaces, private villas, and numerous temples, mosques and churches throughout India.
Being settled in the port city of Kochi, Manoharan's lenses got exposed to weddings of various ethnicities ranging from Punjabi to Tamil and Sindhi to Western.
The philosophy behind his amazing saga-on-the-shutter clicks is profound. In his own words, "it is the sensibility to understand and portrait human emotions, attention to the minute details and unfathomable trust between me and my customers."
Now it makes no wonder, as he gets the rare opportunity to click for weddings of two generations in the same family.
