Photographer Captures Wedding Using Only An iPhone And The Result Is Beautiful

Published 1 year ago

If you are photographing your wedding with an iPhone, you are either of extremely basic tastes or have an artistic idea. Sephi Bergerson is one of the latter and he managed to convince an Indian couple of his vision. And so it came to pass that Sephi Bergerson used an iPhone 6s Plus to record the 3-day Indian wedding fest of Ayushi and Abhishek in Udaipur in Rajasthan.

“What I like about the iPhone is it helps me get much closer to the subject and have eye contact,” says Bergerson. “With DSLR, the camera comes between me and the subject. The iPhone won’t replace the DLSR but it offers a completely new medium of photography.” Bergerson has been photographing Indian weddings for 7 years and the results of his work will be released as the book “Behind The Indian Veil: A Journey Through Weddings in India.”

“But low light photography was difficult…as the ISO limit was not letting me shoot without having motion blur”
