Since the invention of the camera, wedding photography has grown into one of the major branches of professional photography. Although within the technical division of photography into different types based on the subject matter, wedding photography only comes as a subdivision of 'People Photography', it unsurprisingly is one of the oldest specialisations. This, of course, can easily be understood by Keralites, considering the importance that a wedding holds in our culture. Even in Kerala, wedding photography was among the first uses camera technology was bought for.
Today, the art of wedding photography in Kerala has evolved into a specialised skill of its own, requiring not just an eye for framing pictures and good timing but also an understanding of the culture and the needs of the bride and groom, according to distinguished professional wedding photographer Manoharan, who is based in Cochin. With the proliferation of photography technology however, the field of wedding photography in Kerala has been flooded with service providers like never before. The reason for this is that many people, especially rookie photographers see wedding photography as a lucrative field of work, where working hours are low and pay is high. The truth is, wedding photography is no walk in the park and by the time they’ve realised that, your wedding album will have fallen by the wayside as collateral damage.
Wedding photography, just like the wedding itself requires a lot of planning and dynamic execution. A wedding photographer is on duty from morning till night and sometimes even beyond that on the wedding day and this involves composing pictures in different lights, managing people both acquainted and unknown to them, staying alert for photo opportunities throughout the function and dealing with heat and fatigue. In fact, for experienced photographers like Manoharan, the real work starts after the wedding, when the raw pictures go into post processing. Long past are the days when the wedding album took a month to process. Nowadays, with digital cameras and softcopies, customers expect to be furnished with a fully worked, hardbound wedding album weeks after the wedding, if that! One resounding bit of advice that anyone seeking a wedding photographer needs to hear – don’t compromise because even years after the wedding, the photographs are what you will be able to keep in your hands.
