Midwest wedding photographers serving Fargo, North Dakota, Minneapolis, Minnesota, and available worldwide.

Authentic, emotional, and exhilarating photographs for couples who value candid moments.

We’re not your mama’s photographer. We love hard and laugh often.


Overly-posed photos are cringe-worthy. Let’s move a little bit, ha!


Couples too often get lost in planning to enjoy themselves. Not here ;)


Before we get started, we should probably address some things! 

Here’s your invitation to let go of the stress and simply enjoy yourselves. 

You ought to have a joyful day where you can be yourselves surrounded by the people who mean the most to you.

We photograph weddings for those who want their images to look and feel like them. Forget the dreaded prom pose. We believe in capturing the candid moments of big smiles, belly laughs, and deep love. (Sure, we’ll add a couple of formal photos sprinkled in, too, ha!)

This is your REAL life, so it should be what you want. We’ve created a process that allows you to be present while we capture what actually matters to you. You’ll feel comfortable, heard, and empowered to let yourself truly FEEL the day.

You should know: your wedding day is about YOU TWO. 

We exist to serve the fearless and laid-back lovers who seek to be present in every moment. 

If this sounds like something you value, reach out. We’re oh so ready to call you our people.

We want to be your friends before becoming your photographers because the best way to capture natural photographs is when you’re comfortable. We can’t document a love story we don’t know. 

If you’re only looking for someone to take “nice photos,” we are not the team for you—and that’s okay! 

I wasn’t a wedding photographer when I took my first photos in Sedona, Arizona years ago. I was a guy on an adventure with people that meant a lot to me. That mindset is what created the culture for our team today: photography through relationships. 

Hey friends! I’m Ivan!
