But Sephi wasn’t just a friend of the Indian couple, who hosted their wedding with a huge, three-day-long celebration in Udaipur, Rajasthan.
Instead, he was the official wedding photographer, a man who had been challenged by the couple with shooting and editing the entire wedding using only an iPhone.

Total challenge: He was challenged by an Indian couple to do so, and it has always been a dream of his
‘It has been a dream of mine for a long time to shoot a complete Indian wedding only on the iPhone,’ says Bergerson on his photography blog, arguing that the problem with fulfilling his dream was that he struggled to find a pair who were brave enough.
‘The wedding was possibly the biggest I have ever photographed. The events took place in Udaipur over three incredible days.
‘I have covered many weddings in Udaipur before, but have never seen the place so beautifully decorated,’ he continues.
Night-time difficulties: Bergerson says that the night-time shots were harder than those taken during the day
Huge celebration: The wedding took place over three days and was the biggest Bergerson has ever shot
The award-winning Bergerson has been photographing Indian weddings for an impressive seven years, but this project was like nothing he has ever done before.
‘The daytime pictures were fantastic, but the night still remained a bit tricky,’ he says.
‘The new iPhone 6s Plus is superb in terms of resolution and colour rendition, but low light photography was difficult, on the dancefloor for example, as the ISO limit was not letting me shoot without having motion blur.’
Different medium: Bergerson says that smartphones offers a completely different medium to DSLR cameras
