Sephi Bergerson – Photographer

Welcome, and thank you so much for your interest in my photography.  

Based in Goa, India, and available for travel worldwide, I am a dedicated documentary and lifestyle photographer.  With over two decades of experience, I am also the author of ‘Behind The Indian Veil – A Journey Through Weddings in India’, and have arguably witnessed and documented a larger and more diverse variety of Indian weddings than any other person on Earth.

I consider it a pleasure and a honor to photograph the traditions, friends, and families of my clients on the most romantic days of their lives. I approach every assignment with the utmost professionalism and you can count on me to stay calm, centered, and friendly throughout the excitement of the day.

I believe every couple deserves extraordinary photographs of their wedding and I know how difficult it can be to find someone who has the skills, experience and style to create them. To ensure the highest level of customer service I restrict my bookings to no more than ten weddings per year, and I get to know each and every person I work with so I can celebrate their style and exceed their expectations.

If you are looking for stunning photography of your wedding in Goa, Udaipur, Jaipur, Kerala, Thailand, Kenya, the Maldives, Sri Lanka, the Seychelles, or anywhere in India, Africa or Asia, I hope you will call my studio. I would love to go wherever your heart leads you.

Some frequently asked questions

How much do you charge?

Your wedding is the biggest day of your life together and I understand the importance of the occasion to you and your family. Every wedding is different and it is important for me to not only show who was at the wedding, but more than that when you look at the pictures I would like you to remember how you felt on this special day.

Our wedding photography packages start from USD 5,000 (₹3,15,000) onwards and include the ‘presidential suite’ in terms of service and quality of work.

If you are interested in our service and would like to know more, do send us an email with your wedding schedule and we’ll be in touch within not more than 24 hours.

What are your payment terms?

A booking fee/retainer of 30% is due to reserve your date. This retainer is payable by a few different methods: International TT transfer, PayPal, direct bank deposit or Western Union. Another payment of 30%  is due 90 days before your event with the final amount due two weeks before the wedding. If booking under thirty days before the wedding the entire contract amount is due at the time of signing.

I know a photographer that charges less then you. Can you match that?

A wise man once said that photography is not a commodity. Driving a Hyundai is not like driving a Lexus. I am proud of being able to give you the “Presidential Suite’ of service and quality of work. I believe in value for money and you have my assertions that the final images will stand above the competitors. However, if you have a smaller budget we will be happy to send one of the capable photographers working in my team to your event. Please contact us for more details.

I also need a videographer. Can you help me?

We work in association with a few highly professional teams of cinematographers who are very experienced in Indian weddings. I am happy to quote for videography if you feel you need and want a film of your wedding done.

I want a wedding album. Can you quote for that?

I will be more than happy to help you create a truly stunning album of your wedding. Our wedding albums are produced to the highest standard in the industry. Each album is hand made and printed on fine-art museum-quality archival paper that is guaranteed to last at least one hundred years. Leather bound, the album comes in a custom album box to create an amazing keepsake to hold your wedding images for generations to come. Please let me know and I will be happy to send you more information.

What will I receive from you?

My photography service always include photography service for up to 10 hours on the wedding day. You keep the final high resolution images for personal use. You will own “home use rights” to your images which means that you can do pretty much anything you want with them as long as it doesn’t generate any income for yourself or the people you give them to. Find out all the details in the contract. The images you receive are all colour corrected and optimised, print-ready high resolution files good enough for any high-end glossy magazine.  An average set will range from 180-250 images for a small wedding to 600-800 images for a large wedding. You will get a beautiful online gallery that you can easily share with your friends and family. You will be able to download all the images directly from this gallery. All the images I shoot at your wedding are backed up in the most reliable and sophisticated back-up system and will stay secure with me for a minimum of five (5) years.

How long will it take you to deliver my pictures?

Time frames can range anywhere from two weeks to two months, depending on the time of the year and my schedule. The average delivery time is usually two to four weeks but can sometime take more. In any case, delivery of the final DVD will be less than 60 days from the time of your wedding.

Which cameras do you use?

It is really not the camera that creates the image but the person holding it. I use the latest and best equipment that I need to create the magic that you expect me to create. The famous American author and journalist Ernest Hemingway once met the legendary photographer Irving Penn at an event. Ernest Hemingway: “Good pictures, what camera do you use?” Irving Penn: “What typewriter do you use?” Please feel free to contact me for more information and I will be happy to answer.
