Born in Mumbai, India, Manish migrated to the United States at a young age. Intuitive and adventurous,with a passion to travel the world, and a desire to capture its beauty; Manish decided to study photography at the City college of New York. Pursuing his dream, upon graduating, Manish visited more than 25 countries while encapsulating the world through his lens. In 1998 Manish found his niche in wedding photography. Impressed by his work, Manish was requested by a close friend to shoot his wedding. Excited and thrilled by this experience, he has been a professional wedding photographer since. His natural ability to immortalize your magical memories allows you to live and love each moment, time and again.

From once upon a time to happily ever after, the art of elegant story-telling is the divinity of Sung’s work.

Sung was born in Seoul, Korea and moved to the United States in the early 1990′s.
His extensive spiritual journeys in India and humanitarian activities throughout Asia over the past two decades have been the soul and defining framework of his work. He is finely attuned to the various cultural diversities of India and the Indian people. His images seek to capture the emotional depth of traditional sentiments and the joys of festivity.

The Team Manish and Sung

We are friends turned into creative collaborators. Since our college days of studying photography together, we have worked on an array of creative projects in India, China, Nepal, Pakistan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Peru, Thailand,  Bolivia, Cambodia, and Tibet. Our collective talent and expertise enables us to consistently provide you with the best quality images. We treat your event with professionalism and individual care. Our heart and soul go into seeking to capture the beauty and love expressed in each wedding.

 

Where are you based?

We are based in NY, NJ, and PA.

 

What is your photography style?

Our style is artistic, unique and thoughtful. We pride ourselves on capturing the moments and emotion of your wedding in a creative, photojournalistic way.

 

Do you take posed family portraits ?

Absolutely.  Although we are based on photojournalistic and documentary background, we incorporate the traditional photos. Sometimes your family has traveled far to be there and you haven’t all been together in a while! So these photos are just as important as anything else. With group photos, we work fast and efficient, to make sure you and your family aren’t missing from your reception for too long. We make sure we have adequate time either before or after the ceremony to take whatever group and formal shots you need.

 

Do we need a shot list?

We don’t usually go by lists of shot requirement, because every wedding is unique.  So, we need to capture the your important wedding moments with our talent and skills. Not by prearranged shot lists. Manish and Sung, together we have photographed hundreds of weddings and we are very keen to every little detail of your wedding day. We will capture all the important moments and details, from your wedding dress to the table linens, from your dad’s reaction when he sees you for the first time to the group of guys from your college days. Your complete wedding day coverage is in good hands. We will ask for a list of family group shots but that’s it!

 

Do you process images?

Absolutely. We are 100% in house productions. Your wedding images are edited and made into digital files. Manish and Sung Photography will edit and process all images its own style.

 

How many pictures will we get?

The number of photographs taken depends on many things – the number of guests, hours of coverage, types of events. Our bare minimum is 700 images, but often it’s much, much higher.

 

Do you put water marks on photos?

We don’t play games to customers. Our fees are based on your wedding day and hours. We edit and process into high-resolution digital files without watermarks. The images are all yours.

 

How many photographers do you have and who is actually coming to the day of wedding?

Manish and Sung Photography has only two main photographers. So, you will see either Manish or Sung at your wedding day.

 

We’re really nervous about getting our picture taken–can you help us? 

We are very easy going and not only want you to be comfortable, but have fun too. Our approach is relaxed and happy while also giving you the direction you need to make you look and feel beautiful. We are pretty compact little photographers so we blend in easy and make ourselves a part of the wedding so as to go mostly unnoticed, all the while capturing your emotions and moments as they are happening. You will most likely have the reaction that a lot of our couples do upon seeing the photos…”I didn’t even know they were there!”

 

When can I expect my photos?

Because we want to make sure your photographs are absolutely perfect when you receive them, most complete photo collections will be delivered within 5 to 6 weeks.

 

Do you travel?

Yes. Manish and Sung have extensive travel experiences in more than 20 countries.  We are available for world wide travel and our bags are always packed. Please note – if airfare and hotel and rental car are needed all you are responsible for is a direct reimbursement for the charges.
