Natalia and Joao
Natalia and Joao - Dear Sebi and Yadira,

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.

Marlet and Martin - With Sebi we did our trash the dress session in a cenote and the experience with him, his wife and team was just amazing and most importantly the pictures we received are like from another world! We totally love them and everybody we showed them to was just wondering how beautiful they are and how it was possible to create them like that. Sebi and his team were all super friendly and funny, we understood each other well also at the personal level, we talked very nice in the car, but he was also very professional, punctual, helpful, explained to us all the details, his ideas, exactly and patiently how we should jump or swim, during the whole photo shoot he made us feel comfortable, safe, the whole time kept good mood, was funny and creative. We could take a break anytime but we chose not to, despite in the end feeling a bit cold and tired but we had that much fun! I wear quite strong contact lenses but the water was so clear and clean that I didn't have any problem swimming with them (for any case I brought a spare pair but didn't have to use it). We chose the public cenote because we liked those pictures better and it was fine, the other visitors didn't disturb too much and there are no strange people in our pictures. We were organizing everything from Europe, skyped with Sebi nicely in advance where he explained us all the details and we were laughing a lot and all the following communication was just great, he answered always very promptly, he speaks perfect English and Spanish, he was always trying to be as flexible as possible and adjust to our needs and time constraints. He brought us his dresses to try at our hotel in advance (at a strange time that we needed) and they fit well. While planning our wedding we compared many photographers that were offering trash the dress sessions at cenotes but we liked Sebi's output the best - pictures of many other photographers looked quite pale, without much color, the worst like if the people had just drowned. But Sebi took much effort to process his pictures to accentuate the colors which naturally get lost under water (just ask any diver), to give them life, but still to make them look natural. We were using cloth in shiny colors, maybe not always easy to swim with but it made a huge difference in the pictures. The pictures we received were in the style exactly as on his website and without any watermarks. We love the light, colors, composition, all the Sebi's ideas, my wife is always smiling, me subdued in the background letting her shine, we were surprised we even look good! We even received the pictures sooner than agreed, just in time to show them to both families on a large TV screen before my parents flew back to Europe. Thank you very very much Sebi, for the funny time, great experience and amazing pictures, we have some breathtaking shots, we are super happy and will for sure recommend you!

Danyl and Zach - We absolutely loved our experience with Sebi and his team! Sebi was great to work with, and very easy going. His wife is incredibly kind and thoughtful, putting us at ease. The combination of them makes for a wonderful session. Sebi is an artistic photographer with an eye for image. We were so impressed with how our photos turned out and will cherish them forever. They've caught so much attention from our loved ones as well and they are some of our favorite photos capturing such a magical moment. Thank you to Sebi and his team! We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a spectacular experience that is a little difference from your 'traditional' photos.

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***

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!”

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.

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.

Rebecca and Kyle - Sebi Messina,

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.

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

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!

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 !!! :-))))))))

Chiara and Emiliano - Dear Sebi and Yadira,

It is almost impossible to describe this fantastic experience. This was beyond any doubts, one of the most original and unique experiences that we have ever had.

At the beginning we thought it would be too hard for us to follow your instructions: hold the breath, open the eyes, take an artistic position and smile; all of it at the same time underwater.

But, with your help, all went smoothly and accomplishing the task finally appeared surprisingly easy and amusing to us. To be able to take pictures underwater with such naturalness and easiness was an unexpected surprise for us. Your professionalism and artistic touch is clearly visible in the resulting photos. We came to the conclusion that this unusual photo shooting is the only way to appreciate couples in a magic universe.

Thank you so much for helping us discover the Cenote’s paradise and for sharing with us this unforgettable experience.
