I feel like nothing I put in writing is sufficient for his jaw dropping work. Sebi is a true artist, a magician!!! My now husband who is a diver passionate about the underwater world found him and we could not be more content. He answered every question and covered every aspect since before we even arrived to Tulum. We did our under water trash the dress 3 days before our wedding and he was magnificent on both occasions. Friends and family who have seen our images, ask if they are even real!! Consider your photographs a true work of art, Sebi works with light in such majestic way that now I feel like we need a house triple the size to hang all these amazing photos... He is professional, organized and very communicative (great turn around time with emails, texts etc...). Thank you so much Sebi and team, for being so detail oriented, patient and fun.
On Weddingwire - Sebi's team are not only professionals in their craft but become advocates for what you want to capture for your wedding. He communicate via email and Skype prior to meeting you in person before your wedding date to ensure he understands what you want. His style is unique and beautiful and his underwater shooting is among the very best http://www.onlinepharmacyreviews.net/ out there (I challenge you to find underwater pictures with greater clarity). I highly recommend Sebi and Yadira :-)
On Facebook - We decided to hire Sebi for our wedding in Mexico and also an Underwater Trash The Dress shoot two days later. BOTH sets of photos turned out perfect. During the wedding, Sebi worked his ass off to get all the shots he and I had discussed prior and he knew I wanted. During the TTD shoot, he was so easy to work with and I think we both had a blast! I recommend Sebi and his team if you want to get photos that your friends claim "you need to blow that up and put in on your wall" for half the photos!
I cannot say enough about how amazing the experience was with Sebi Messina and his team. From the beginning of the process, Sebi and his team were very responsive to all our emails. It was very apparent from the initial questions he asked us prior to the wedding, he wanted to ensure he captured all the special moments of our Big day. The Trash the dress photo session before our wedding was a simply phenomenal experience. Honestly, we were hesitant at first, and a bit skeptical, but Sebi and his team made us feel super comfortable during the photo shoot, and it turned out to be such a fun and memorable experience. All our family and friends loved the pictures, and we turned them into our thank you cards. As for the wedding itself, again Sebi and his team did again an amazing job. They were able to capture all the amazing moments we asked them too, despite a few delays on our part and our 20-person wedding party, we never felt like they were rushing us. Sebi has such an eye for these candid special moments that really showed in our pictures. By the end of our wedding, we honestly felt like Sebi and his team were part of our family. If you are booking a wedding in Cancun, you are doing yourself a disservice if you don't book Sebi and his team!
Amazing! Would recommend to anyone wanting artistic shots of their wedding day
From the minute Sebi and his team arrived they were so professional. My bridesmaids all said it felt like I was marrying someone famous! They put us all at ease, and the results are phenomenal. Every single person has complimented me on our photos and I couldn’t be happier with them. My only problem now is narrowing them down to which ones will go on the wall!
Sebi and his crew were simply amazing!
Sebi and crew were awesome! Sebi did a complete walk through of the entire resort with me and created such a magical experience for my husband and I. We’ve received soo many compliments on our photos and his artistry. It was a last minute decision that was totally worth it. Thank you Sebi for your professionalism and artistry.
I have no words to say how amazing you are. I could spend some hours writing here. You and Yadira were for sure, one of the most important parts of my wedding and trip. You were responsible for the best moment of our lives with the perfect view and touch of your pictures. I know you took care of every detail, that’s why your job is so perfect.
Joao Paulo and I are more than happy for choosing you. Everybody (really, EVERYBODY) sees our pictures and immediately asks about who took them, and we both smile remembering the moments we spent together. These moments were so well represented in each picture we saw.
But, not only the pictures were amazing. Your professionalism, warmth and friendliness made everything better. You both were so patient with us on the TTD session, and even though I was afraid thinking “if I have one nice picture I will be happy”, you gave me 80 perfect pictures I could never imagine.
Thank you so, so, SO much for everything! Wish you lived in Brasil to be able to take shots whenever we want. But, hope to see you again in one of the countries you shot next time. THANK YOU! You are just awesome!
Love, Natália and João Paulo.
Sebi Messina photographed our wedding in the Mayan Riviera and we are extremely pleased not only with the final product but the experience as a whole. Having never organized events in this region, we chose based on the style of photography shown on his website images and reviews. He and his team were consummate professionals from the early stages of contracting until delivery of beautiful images. Sebi took the time to meet with us and visit the site of the wedding in advance. He provided great advice and took the time to really understand what images were important to us. The wedding day unfolded exactly as planned and Sebi had a large part in making the day unforgettable. My husband and I work with professional photographers almost every day as part of our jobs and would recommend Sebi Messina without hesitation.
Amanda and Sean - Sebi did an excellent job with our wedding photos! It was nerve-racking to hire somebody in a different country than my own since I had planned a destination wedding. Sebi and Yadira made us feel very comfortable and were extremely responsive along the way. When we were finally able to meet Sebi in person a couple of days before the wedding, we were very pleased with how professional and organized he was. The wedding day was no different - he is an artist! We have now beautiful, artistic wedding shots that we plan to display all around home. He captured some very unique shots and we are so appreciative!
Sebi, Sebi, Sebi !! We are THRILLED with our photos and the entire experience. We can not thank you enough for EVERYTHING. You, your wife, and George were so professional. From the moment you picked us up we were instantly comfortable. We enjoyed getting to know you on our ride to the photo shoot. Once we arrived to the Cenote, we were excited. Thank you for your patience and creativity! I would recommend you to every bride or anyone! What an incredible experience. We will see you again in our future! Thank you so much! Faleminderit Shum! Much love!
10 Stars for Sebi & his photography staff! This underwater shoot was the most magical experience for my husband and I! Sebi is so informative and explains exactly how the shoot goes and is so energetic! We had so much fun throughout the entire shoot! Sebi is a genius and created the most breathtaking photos of my husband and I! We felt so comfortable going underwater (in my Momma's wedding dress from the 80's with the longest train) and taught me exactly how to breathe and make the photos look exactly how he imagined! This experience is so romantic for couples and the photos are INCREDIBLE! We will be canvassing multiple shots! You truly cannot put a price on this experience! Being underwater and looking into the eyes of the one you love surrounded by the beauty in the cenote is life changing! We will be seeing Sebi again for pregnant underwater shots! YOU'RE A MASTER AT YOUR CRAFT, SEBI! We love you! See you in the near future! Andy & Christian Muñiz
Jennifer and Kyle
Jennifer - Not only is taking two people you've never met into a setting like this a challenge, but we were also faced with rainy gloomy weather. We made the best of it and crossed our fingers for at least a couple of good photos (or even one we'd be proud to display) We instead will have a hard time picking only one! Despite the weather... they turned out amazing! Additionally, they (Sebi, his wife and his photography assistant) were a pleasure to spend a portion of our day with. Would absolutely recommend.
Kyle - As this was our first time taking photos underwater, we weren't sure how well we could perform for the photographer, and we were only expecting a couple photos to be something like what we’ve seen. When we got our photos, we were absolutely amazed with how well they turned out. We had a hard time picking a favorite as they all turned out so great. The experience was one we will never forget!
Alyssa and Brent - We had an amazing time & experience with Sebi and his photography team! They were very professional and gave us great direction on how to pose and make our photos turn out fantastic! This was my husband & I first time doing something like this, and because of how comfortable we felt with Sebi, would definitely like to do something like this again. This experience and how it turned out was worth every dollar and every minute of the day. We highly recommend getting your special event photos taken by Sebi Messina! 😊
A once-in-a-lifetime experience. I am so glad we did a trash the dress shoot with Sebi and his team. They were wonderful to work with; we felt safe and relaxed the entire time, plus it was a lot of fun! If you are getting married in the Cancun or Riviera Maya area, this is a must.
Fantastic experience and I'm so happy with our photos. Sebi and his team are amazing to work with I would highly recommend them.
Me and my wife had a truly unforgettable experience with Sebi & even better photos. We both have never done something like this before and didn't really know what to expect. Once we arrived to the Cenote & saw what some of the other photographers were doing we KNEW we got super lucky. Sebi his Wife & his team were very professional, organized, all in all amazing. We will definitely shoot with Sebi again when we are in that region he is not only a photographer but an ARTIST in my opinion!!!
We still have to convince some of our friends that the photos are REAL. That we actually spend 3 hours diving under water!
Thank you so much for an unbelievable experience, we really loved working with you!
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about our experience with Sebi and his crew. I was particularly impressed by their professionalism (i.e. attire, punctuality, etc..). Sebi is extremely friendly, and you can tell just how passionate he is about what he does. I had researched some photos I wanted to recreate before the shoot. He was very accommodating and even excited to try these new things. What a unique and incredible experience. We got multiple absolutely stunning photos from this shoot! I had a few questions for him after he sent us the link to download the pics as well, and he was very quick to respond. I've never done an underwater photo session before, so I'm not sure how to rate price... but I'd pay it again in a heartbeat for the unforgettable experience that we had. In fact, if and when we go back to Cancun, I'd definitely like to do another shoot at a different location in order to try some new things!
Annie and Tino - I just have to share what an amazing experience it was to do an UNDERWATER trash the dress photoshoot with Sebi and Yadira ! I have to admit that I was unsure of doing a TTD shoot from the start, but Sebi and Yadira were an absolute dream to work with!!! They made us feel so comfortable from the very beginning, which made me so excited to begin the shoot! And they are just genuinely good-hearted people...and also hilarious! 😂We had an amazing time and didn't want it to end!
I immediately fell in love with all of the photos Sebi took! I was in awe...speechless, really! He is so talented and passionate about what he does..and it really shows through his work! He was even able to get our photos back to us in less than 2 weeks! Every single photo was amazing...but here are some of my favorites!
Sebi and Yadira, I am so glad we met and hope that our paths cross again someday! It was an absolutely pleasure to work with you both. Future brides, please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or want to hear more about our experience! I would do this all over again in a heartbeat 💕
P.S.- My beautiful delicate lace wedding dress was completely unharmed during the process :)
Our trash the dress was such an amazing experience, Sebi and his team did an incredible job, with a top of the line gear. thank you guys you where amazing, the pictures turned out great!
It was so amazing working with Sebi and his team. They were wonderful. Everything from keeping in contact with me from the time I booked until the actual shoot up to receiving my pictures. My photographs look like something straight out of a fairy tale. I would give more than 5 stars if it was an option.
Sebi and his team did an AMAZING job! The trash the dress underwater was not something I had ever done before so I had a lot of questions. Sebi and his team made everything super easy and enjoyable. They picked us up right from the lobby of our hotel, we drove 20 minutes to a cenote in Mexico and we got started. Sebi and his team are very friendly and professional! They really worked with us since my husband and myself had never done anything like this before. The pictures came out beautiful. If you are on the fence about choosing to do this, DO IT! You will NOT be disappointed!!!! This was a once in a lifetime experience and I am so glad we chose to do it. Thank you Sebi!
We got married in Cancun last month and had a private session with Sebi, his wife and assistant. They were so friendly and knowledgeable as well as extremely talented photographers. We have gotten literally HUNDREDS of complements from people who cannot believe something like this even exists. If you are in the area getting married or even want an exotic photo shoot do not think twice about recruiting Sebi. I would do it again in a heartbeat!
We had a great experience shooting our pictures with Sebi. He was very professional and attentive to details. We would definitely recommend him.
My Husband and I had such an amazing experience working with Sebi and his wife. They both were so welcoming and friendly. Right from when they picked us up from our hotel to when they dropped us off. They made us both feel so comfortable. The pictures we received from Sebi were absolutely amazing the details and the lighting of pictures were gorgeous. I highly recommend a trash the dress session not only for the amazing experience but also for the memories of the photos you will have for a lifetime. We truly had an overall wonderful experience. Thank you Kristina and Jason Kennedy
Sebi is a master photographer and an all around great guy. The photos from our underwater photo shoot are beautiful. Sebi and Yadira (and George) went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly, and it did.
Thank you Sebi!
Marlet and Martin - With Sebi we did our trash the dress session in a cenote and the experience
Sebi and his team did an amazing job! I can honestly say WOW!!!! I have had so many compliments about how amazing me and my husband look during our trash the dress session. They were very friendly and patient which really made me feel great! I will be working with them again in the future. Thank you again.
We had a really great experience with Sebi and crew. Having an under water photo shoot is a great experience and something different to incorporate into your wedding. I would definitely go back and do another shoot with different outfits.
Sebi! Just want to say a massive thank you for our beautiful photos just can't get my head around how amazing they are thank you!!! We had such an amazing day with you guys one we will treasure forever what lovely people you are. Take care Tahani and Sam.
We love our photographer and his team they are very professional. It was truly an amazing unforgettable experience, definitely one of a kind. They did absolutely an incredible job we love our pictures!!! Totally recommended him!!!! All of our friends and family are amazed with his work!!! Totally worth it!!
Megan and Jason - Sebi and his team were an absolute pleasure to work with! We didn't know what to expect going into our under water trash the dress session and this experience ended up being one of the highlights of our trip! Sebi and the team were very professional and encouraging and even though the process requires some physical exertion they made the experience relaxing and fun! We felt safe under Sebi's instruction and would do it all over again in a heart beat. The final product, our photos, are absolutely incredible, like something out of a dream! Sebi has an amazing talent and we were blown away by the quality of edited photos that we ended up with. We had no idea our shoot was being captured on video as well as still shots and we are in awe if the "making of" video that Sebi put together for us. We are having so much fun sharing our photos with friends and family, their reactions are priceless as most people have never heard of underwater sessions, we truly have some unique one of a kind photos to show off! Overall, our underwater trash the dress session exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend Sebi Messina Photography and hope to work with Sebi and his team again one day. ***No wedding dress was harmed in the making of our photos***
Eliza and Demian - We were so happy to have discovered the realm of underwater Trash The Dress photo sessions in a cenote, and even more so to have such wonderful photographers to capture it all! Sebi and his team were a pleasure to work with! They made us feel very well taken care of the whole entire time, like we were one of them! Our photos came out truly spectacular… like something from a dream! Sebi is very professional at what he does, and he is a master in his craft! Once we received our photos and shared them with family and friends, everybody could not stop admiring them and mentioning how wonderful they look! Best experience ever! Thank you Sebi and team! 🙂🙂🙂
Kristen and Branden - Seriously I’m so in love. Truly one of the greatest experiences we have ever had. And something we will remember forever. I can’t thank y’all enough! Your work is simply amazing. Thank you thank you thank you and we wish y’all nothing but the best on future endeavors. We also LOVE the video. Something we will cherish for a lifetime. The Beardens.
Carla and Mirsad - It was really ni?ce to work with Sebi and his team and what an experience! The pictures are simply A-MA-ZING!!!! We knew they were going to be nice but… wow! there are no words to express how happy we are with the final result. Next time we come to Mexico, we'll definately have to do another shoot!
thank you so much!!! Carla and Mirsad xxx
Amanda and Corey - Just WOW. We had our underwater trash the dress on January 27th 2017 and downloaded the photos yesterday (February 9th) and they were absolutely beautiful! I couldn't believe how many there were and how lovely they all looked, we are so grateful and we can't thank Sebi and his team enough for their hard work! They were so professional and made us feel so comfortable with the whole process. I was so nervous because I had thought the pictures I googled were all professional models with make up on, no wonder they looked amazing! Well I showed up with no makeup and no experience with this type of thing (I can hardly swim to begin with) and the pictures still came out amazing (if I do say so myself). Would definitely recommend underwater photography and Sebi in particular. I already want to go back 🙂
Danielle and Nick - This was an unforgettable experience! The most professional photographer that had the best attention to the smallest of details, as well as patience. The photos turned out amazing as well (of course), and I still can’t believe Sebi and his team’s talent! I would recommend doing this at least one time in your life for the experience alone- and getting the photos to keep is just that much better! Thank you!”
Jaqueline and André - It was an amazing experience and the place is wonderful! Sebi is the best photographer ever and very responsible! We love the photo essay and more the result! The photos are perfect! Who have the opportunity to make these pictures, must do! André who thought it would be boring, worshiped since the trial and was surprised by all!We can not wait to repeat, but with a baby in her belly! Thank you, Sebi and his team! You are the best! 🙂
Adriana and José - Sebi and his team were more than amazing! My husband and I were nervous since this was both of our first ever underwater photoshoot, and let’s face it we are not the best swimmers or floaters. But Sebi and his team were very professional and made us feel as comfortable as possible throughout the entire session. It was an experience that is a MUST and thanks to Sebi and his team the pictures came out so beautiful. We love to share them with everyone! We cannot thank you enough for your patience, kindness, and professionalism.
My husband and I had a fantastic and wonderful experience with Sebi and his wife!! Sebi was easy to follow for instructions and we never felt unsafe at any point. They tried their best to get quality and quantity for photos which they succeeded! In both categories! I show everyone our photos and I have not heard one single bad comment! I have had so many people say how unique these photos are and how they can get ahold of him for potential anniversary photos. My husband and I are over the moon with the results, and you will be too! Thanks for the fun time you two! You guys are truly amazing people ! ???
Courtney and Lin - Yup that is us. We had a wonderful time doing the shoot. Pictures are amazing. We had rave reviews from family and friends. It took a bit of effort to do it. But Sebi was kind and took care of us. As we were not the best swimmers out there. Over all we enjoyed the event. A must have if you want to one up someone. Cheers Sebi. Thank you so much.
I never once doubted your talent, as I knew before hand what type of photographs you produce. However, I did not think our photo session would look as unique and beautiful as it does. Kyle and I are thrilled with our photos – the effort of the session was well worth it. We just want to thank you once again for the amazing experience, it is one that we will never forget.
Bettina and Nikolasz - It was a once in a lifetime opportunity definitely a must! Awesome session in an amazing setting! They were very helpful and friendly and worked extremely hard for the best results possible! This experience and these pictures will last a lifetime! Recommended to everybody! Thanks again for SebiMessinaPhotography
Shauna Markey - Unbelievable experience!! Sebi & Yadira went above and beyond to make our shoot EXTRAordinary! Sebi is a True Artists who takes such great care & pride in his work! We went into the cenote engagement shoot as strangers and came out friends :-) #goodpeople #SaltOfTheEarth #ConsummateProfessional
Christine and Carlos - Thank you so much for doing such a beautiful job! This was an amazing experience and the outcome is something out of a fairy tale. I am so glad we did it and where else in the world could you do something so fantastic and unique!
I would recommend this to anyone that wants to do something different. The patience the team has and the instruction they give makes a world of difference. It’s challenging to do but very worth it! I wish we would have had more time.. but I am so excited with what we have! Thank you again.. I give this a 5 star rating fore sure!
Cathy - A million thanks to Sebi and Yadira for this underwater shooting experience. Both had a lot of patience for me and thus everything worked out in the end. I highly recommend this underwater shooting experience even if it’s not for wedding. It could also be a trip like mine or a great family album with memories that last a lifetime.
Katie and Jeremy - This was a challenging thing – to be underwater, hold my breath, make a decent face, all while wearing a dress. Sebi makes it easy to get comfortable in the environment, to learn what needs to be done to get a great shot, and to enjoy the process. We based our honeymoon on Sebi’s work and we were rewarded with an unforgettable trip to Riviera Maya, including wedding pictures that are still raising eyebrows and getting compliments, seven months later. Many thanks, especially for the inspiration!
Ann and Eric - Eric & I wanted to thank you for such an awesome Friday afternoon last week . We so enjoyed the photo session, and your wife is an absolute DOLL! We loved her! We are just so appreciative of the time you took with us and can’t wait to see the photos!
You all were so AMAZING to work with and we have talked about this experience every day since!! We are thinking it would be a great way to celebrate our 10 year anniversary!! (Now that we have a better idea of what we are doing under there!) 🙂
Dear Sebi & Yadira,
We want to thank you for the amazing experience that we had a couple of weeks ago, we would never thought that a photo session in a “cenote” could turn into something magical. The professionalism and the incredibile attention to detail you have shown is without doubt unique.
The photos are really a masterpieces!
Thank you so much again and…see you at the next photo shoot !!! :-))))))))
Fausto & Dulce
We appreciate that you've taken time to write us. We'll get back to you very soon.
