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.
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 :)
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!
Marlet and Martin - With Sebi we did our trash the dress session in a cenote and the experience
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 nice 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.
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 !!! :-))))))))

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.
Emiliano & Chiara
Sonam and Vidush - Sebi was an excellent find for us! He was extremely patient through the process of the photoshoot given my inability to swim! The outcome of the shoot was phenomenal!
Thanks Sebi! We will definately treasure this for life.
Sana - Sebi is a true artist! He made me feel very comfortable throughout the shoot. His professionalism is impeccable and he is also a fantastic director. This was my first time modeling underwater so it took some time for me to get acclimated to the environment but Sebi was extremely patient and helped me every step of the way. It was an unforgettable experience!
Victoria Loren - Had a great experience to take pictures with Sebi and his crew. Pictures came out amazing! Thank you Sebi :)
Angie Ventura - I am very grateful and happy with the result of the photo shoot, Sebi and his team made this experience a totally pleasant moment , safe, magical and unforgettable! I look forward to our next photo shoot! All the best and thank you!!!

Claudia De Los Santos - Mi experiencia en mi sesión de fotos de maternidad fue inolvidable, para mi fue algo totalmente novedoso, más que fotografía lo considero un arte, cada foto realmente logra capturar tu esencia de forma original gracias al profesionalismo y gran calidad de este fotógrafo, todas las fotos están bien logradas y el resultado lo puedes ver plasmado en cada obra digital, 100% recomendable.
Lizeth Mendoza - Siempre lo he dicho la fotografía no es simplemente una fotografía , es mas que eso. Es una de las artes mas hermosas que al igual que la música es una forma de expresar la mas grande emocion . Ahora estoy viviendo una de las etapas mas hermosas de una mujer mi embarazo, quise hacer algo diferente y esta es una hermosa opción fotografía bajo el agua. Gracias a un excelente fotógrafo Sebi Messina que tiene un equipo completo. Realmente he quedado fascinada con las fotografías es muy recomendable :)
