We specialize in creating romantic images and wedding films for couples in love.
My goal during your wedding is to make you feel at ease while I capture all the true emotions, expressions, and happiness of everyone gathered together to celebrate your big day. I love to record important moments as they happen naturally without any planned ideas or taking control while giving only a touch of direction as needed.
It is important that you appreciate photography, look through the website and make sure you LOVE my work. Compatibility with clients comes from having the same interest as I do with a passion for artistic and quality photos. I have been in the wedding photography business for over 12 years and I will be honored to get to know you and learn about your unique love story.
Every client deserves to receive beautiful photos that will look amazing when printed. Each image is individually adjusted for brightness and contrast, along with a set of unique signature colors only available from us for a rich and beautiful look. We are so proud of our work that we guarantee every finished product.
Every couple has unique story about how they connected with each other, how they met, where they had their first date. I want to take you through an adventure, feel the joy, the celebration, the happy tears, in the most beautiful way possible. Each wedding film is created from the heart, I'm the storyteller and you are the journey.
More than just an amazing photographer, he takes the time to meet with you and understand your vision. We were able to pay our balance over several payments which is extremely helpful when having to pay other vendors. I received tips and guides to help make engagement and wedding photos easier on the bride and groom. Ivan was always quick to respond to any email I sent and answered all my questions. I would recommend to all my friends and family and will use them again in the future!!!! thanks so much for making my wedding truly amazing!
Ivan is so professional and kind! I had a great experience from the time I talked to him to the day of our wedding.
You are amazing. You truly care about each couple and the photos that are taken! The photo quality is amazing and is what drew me in to booking y'all for our pictures. We cannot wait to see our wedding photos!
Professional, fun, friendly, and easy to work with. Everyone that was getting ready or at the wedding had nothing but great things to say about you. Thank you for everything!

Hi, I am Ivan, the creative artist behind the scenes. I have been married for 18 years to the love of my life, Ana, and we have a beautiful intelligent daughter, Cassandra. At a very early age I was fascinated with technology. Often I am in the kitchen cooking delicious meals for my family in my cast iron skillets because I love to experiment with flavors. My family says I have a funny laugh that is contagious. I love a good fresh pair of shorts and sandals in this Houston heat. I also love to use movie quotes to express myself to my family. My passion for photography began in High School and I have been doing it professionally since 2005. The invention of the camera has changed the world because now we can capture memories that will last a lifetime. I am humbled to use it and create beautiful images for our clients.

Hi, I am Ana! On the day of your wedding you will see me mostly with the bride, I am her exclusive professional photographer. It is such a privilege to capture the most precious moments between you and your loved ones. My passions are my faith and my family. I am the mom of whom I call my child genius, Cassandra. My sweet fella is my dear husband, Ivan. I thank God for these two important people in my life. My family is little but I am all about them!:) I am currently attending college and my goal is to become a doctor. I am a busy body and often you will find my husband and daughter telling me to sit down and relax. I love to rescue animals and I will not hesitate to stop in the middle of a road to save a turtle. One of my favorite scripture sums up my life’s principles: “Love, Joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith…against such things there is no law (Galatians 5:22).”
Assistant / Storyteller
Hi, I am Casie, daughter of my goofy dad, Ivan and fierce mom, Ana. They like to say that I am their one and only, because I am their only child. I am 18 years old, but often get told I look like I am 12. Growing up I considered myself a professional singer in the shower and an expert in air guitar. Learning how to play the violin, and now the cello, has taught me to appreciate music. My mentality is to be inspired by the people around me and use their life experiences to improve myself. I learned that communication and a positive attitude not only creates peace, but also strength in family. I have always known, not want to but need, to become a doctor to encourage other women into scientific fields and aid patients who have been intimidated by hospital regulations and costs. I plan on joining non-profit organizations and use my skills as a doctor to create something bigger than myself.
