Ian was a life saver and gave us more peace of mind and comfort than our own wedding planner did!Sent on 12/20/2019

I am so in love with our photos from Ian. Everybody looks amazing and he captured many key moments beautifully. Incredibly, I don't look like as much of a dork as I normally do in photographs. That takes some skill!
Ian was very professional from the planning stages through the entire big day. He put up with my uncertainty, unexpected circumstances, and several impromptu guest requests extremely well. For a photographer working solo, he did great and managed to be nearly everywhere at once.
Thank you, Ian. We will cherish these captured moments all our lives and we are so grateful for your hard work and patience on our wedding day.Sent on 05/06/2020
