Award Winning Photos
The Wedding Photojournalist Association proudly recognizes the accomplishments and creative excellence of Sephi. The following awards have been earned by Sephi from the WPJA. These achievements come with great merit considering the high level of competition that a member faces in the contests.
A beautiful picture! The composition was unique and the color and lighting truly made this creative picture stand out. This photographer has a great eye for the interesting angle.
The photographerʼs choice of angle makes an already beautiful bride radiantly more so beneath a blanket of roses. Light, color and composition are at their best to create a spectacle to remember.
Beautiful and captivating. The tight, evocative composition gives this photo a memorable edge.
Darkness…light…shocking blue eyes, very red lips. This image is as jarring as it is simple. A face emerges out of the darkness with striking patterns and color. She wears a veil of shadows.

Thanks for the Birthday wishes, and for the photo, great present! Just got back to the UK. it was a complete dream - first Incredible India, and then the Maldives! Such a pleasure to meet you, thank you for all you did for us. You are someone at the top of your game, great to see. Some of our family and friends have been asking about you too, saying they thought you were brilliant - the way you were shooting, how you took control, the whole thing. Hope all is well with yourself and your family in Goa, look forward to catching up soon. All the best.,

Alex and I were looking at our wedding pictures again the other day, and it was as though we were actually there, back in time again. We love the pictures, everyone looks so good, and the colours are just amazing. We have two of the pictures up on the wall here in our home in Bombay. We want to thank you for being a part of our wedding (both our weddings, actually), and tell you again how much we appreciate the fact that you could be there. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. Everyone who saw the pictures were really impressed...we've been asked several times who our photographer was :) Some relatives of ours told us you were featured in the Marie Claire magazine, and we bought it to see :) Cheers.,

I got the dvd on saturday just like you said, and was actually waiting for the party on the 27th (last weekend) so I could get the reactions of more of the guests! We all absolutely loved the photos!! The sequence of photos of, for example, Guntur and Saskia were so funny...we were all teasing them about it...haha...the best part is that many of the guests were like wow, when did he take that photo, I didnt even realize that...I'm glad though, because most of the girls are used to giving "photo smiles" as soon as they see a camera pointed at them, so it was cool to see real smiles...amazing shots of me and Mirek during the photoshoot...with the vegetable-seller and on the ducks... haha The wedding shots were superb, and I also loved grandpa's pics, you can literally see how passionate he was about his speech! I think I could appreciate your photos much more now after receiving photos from all the guests, cos the colors and sharpness makes the photos so much more realistic....so we could re-live the nice moments again :) Thanks Sephi, you really did some magic ;) Love and hugs.,

From initial contact through to the delivery of the images, our experience with you was outstanding. You were extremely professional and prompt in replying to our queries, as well as accommodating in various request we had. Over the 2 days of photography you were excellent, delivered exactly what you had promised and was able to get shots that others were not able to. You were true to your word on how you work and your style of photography is exactly what we were after. The speed of delivery following the event was fantastic and returned within days. We would be happy to recommend you as a photographer to anyone who is after a high quality photographer with experience and who knows the shots that are needed. ,

You did a fantastic job on capturing such beautiful images of a very memorable time in our lives; you handled the whole photo shoot on both days and all three functions with great professionalism and capability; we are so grateful for a job very well done! We were amazed at the way you managed the shots particularly with all the activity and guests around, we never even saw you taking the spontaneous shots you managed to get; the quality, clarity, colors, artistic quality of all the photos were wonderful. We are so happy we decided to have you take our wedding photos and would not have it any other way. We will treasure these photos and enjoy looking at them with our children in the years to come. We will be very happy to recommend you to our friends and anyone. P.S: We made a coffee table book with the photos and it looks amazing! All the best. ,
