WPOY 2011: A Showcase of Behind the Scenes Category


How many times have you looked at a wedding album and wondered what actually went behind the wedding? The Behind the Scenes category appreciates the efforts of photographers who  pay attention to the small details at every wedding— the bride’s make-up, a quiet moment between the couple or the madness surrounding the wedding.

Our  judge for this category in 2011 was Seshu. Seshu is based in New England, USA, and he does wedding photography, but in a photojournalistic manner. He is a storyteller whose style of wedding photography has been influenced by his tenure as a photo editor for ESPN. His mission is to document honest emotions, no matter what the subject.

About the Winner

Amazingly, Vivek has been a category winner in all three editions of the awards since its inception in 2009. He also won the coveted title of  Wedding Photographer of the Year 2010.

“I tried to do something different from traditional group portraits, and focused on the shadows caused by the harsh afternoon light. This picture also breaks away from my style of photography which is usually a more traditional outlook.”  -Vivek Victor Sequeira, Winner, Behind the Scenes Category, WPOY 2011
