Photographer Uses Only His iPhone To Shoot Entire Wedding And The Results Are Magical

Professional photographer Sephi Bergerson always wanted to shoot and edit an entire wedding using only iPhone photography. The only problem was that he couldn’t find a couple brave enough to let him do it. Then, he came across Ayushi and Abhishek with their big fat 3-day Indian wedding in Udaipur in Rajasthan.

Bergerson used his iPhone 6s Plus. “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. iPhone photos won’t replace the DLSR ones, but it offers a completely new medium of wedding photography.”

Bergerson admits that it was tricky to get the wedding photos right under the low light, but the daytime pics were superb. “The kind of images that come out are somewhere between documentary or photojournalism and what I would call fine art, closer to paintings,” he explains. Bergerson has been photographing Indian wedding traditions in all their glory for seven years, and you can see the results in his new book “Behind The Indian Veil: A Journey Through Weddings in India.”

“It has been a dream of mine for a long time, to shoot a complete Indian wedding only on the iPhone”

“The problem till now was…finding the couple that will agree and allow me to shoot their wedding like this”

Finally, a brave couple agreed to have their 3-day wedding shot entirely with an iPhone

“I was not trying to document everything but rather focus on images that would later translate to the artistic vision that I had”

“Daytime pictures were fantastic, but the night still remained a bit tricky”

“There are so many filters and editing options. It gives instant gratification, much like the Polaroids of the 70’s”

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

“I had a hand-held LED light to help me get proper exposure”

“What I like about the iPhone is it helps me get much closer to the subject and have eye contact”

“The images that come out are somewhere between documentary or photo journalism and what I would call fine art, closer to paintings”

“If I give you a Jimi Hendrix guitar, you won’t be able to play like him. It is not about the gear”

Just a shame that you can hardly enlarge the pictures. Imagine you would want one of the pictures on the wall in maybe a poster size? you can't. Cause the pictures are taken with a sensor the size of an ant. Looks good on a screen in a small size. Enlarge it, and all you see are pixels. Please stop making people believe iphone is a good "camera". I work in a photography store, and people print pictures here, and gets mad at me when they realize you really cant print an iphone picture larger than A4 before the quality is potato.

Admitting, the quality of camera's on phones are improving and are very capable of nice prints. However, your post shows, the photographer is more important than the camera! Great post :) Cheers, Tieme But yeah, Nanna is right
