Contact Manas Saran







I'm Manas, a wedding photojournalist and one half of "Based On A True Story", a wedding photography service for couples looking for a beautiful, truthful and meaningful account of their wedding. 
 
My USP is in capturing the quirkiest moments of a wedding in the most candid and natural way. I believe in the beauty of genuine emotion & powerful storytelling. The best pictures are not that show you what your wedding looked like, but the ones that make you feel what you felt on your big day.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm located in Bangalore, India. There is no extra fee for outstation shoots. Only the ticket costs need to be reimbursed.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

6+ years / 150+ weddings

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My USP is in capturing the quirkiest moments of a wedding in the most candid and natural way. I believe in the beauty of genuine emotion & powerful storytelling and want my clients to have wedding pictures that are real, personal and meaningful.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

I create personalized plans for each wedding but just to give you a rough idea, a typical 1-2 Indian wedding could cost anywhere from 1,00,000 to 2,00,000 INR (USD 1500-3000)

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

Yes, of course!! I don't take up any assignment without meeting the clients either over a cup of coffee at a convenient place in Bangalore or over video chat on Skype, Hangouts or Facetime.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?
