    Magical Wedding Photography

    Ian perfectly captured our special intimate wedding ceremony overlooking Point Lobos. Ian was wonderful to work with and I would recommend. He had a lot of experience and knowledge, and took us to a few magical local locations. We love our photos and the day worked out perfectly!

    Highly Recommended!

    Of all the vendors we hired for our wedding, hiring a photographer was the toughest task for us because there were so many good ones to chose from, and we really cared about getting photos that captured both the look and feel of our wedding day. Ian was fantastic and was just what we were looking for.

    From the start, Ian was great with communication, responding promptly and clearly via email and making time to meet with us in-person at his studio.

    On the day of the wedding, he was friendly, patient, and fun to spend time with. He was prompt and accommodating as we corralled our large families for pre-wedding portraits at a beautiful spot on the coast that Ian picked out. We actually finished early! And when we did, he took us to another spot up in the Monterey Pine forests nearby for an impromptu photo session with just the two of us. Which was kinda magical.

    As for the wedding itself, Ian did a great job of capturing the essence and "story" of the day through lots of candid photos (which is what we wanted!). And when we needed him for a posed group shot, he was there in a flash. We are very pleased with how all the photos turned out. Thank you, Ian!
