For the easy-going yet passionate, brave lovers. The ones who love fully, care deeply, and seek JOY every day. 

We support taking our time to build deep relationships, plan with intention, champion confidence, and celebrate love.

We exist to provide candid photographs that represent who you are through a relationally driven experience.

We create the space for exhilarating experiences and stories that will be shared around the dinner table for years to come.

Our values

Our Mission

Our Vision

We pay attention and often look for ways to spoil you during the process—we hope you like surprises! Even after you say, “I do,” we find ways to prove we’re intentional and not just photo takers. After your wedding, we will meet again for the grand reveal celebration of your online gallery, where we take the guesswork out of printing your photos and album design. 

Couples walk away feeling understood EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. 

We plan the heck out of all the details through custom timelines based on your values and relationship. We don’t follow the rulebook of traditional wedding to-do’s. We don’t just send a pdf and cross photo ops off a checklist—although you can expect us to break out the polaroids like the one grandad had.

Over the last 4+ years and counting, we’ve photographed over 50 weddings with couples consistently booking with us for the unique experience we offer. We have built a foolproof process that allows you to be present, relax with peace of mind, and live a day that feels just like you. 

(Hint: it’s about more than just nice photos.)

Your Experience

- The Thompsons

"5 stars isn’t enough for Ivan! 😉 Ivan is a true artist and lover of people, and that was obvious from the moment we met! After getting a recommendation for Ivan Amssan Photography to do our wedding photography, we had the opportunity to chat via FaceTime to meet Ivan so he could hear our story, our wedding plans, etc. Ivan intentionally listened and got to know who my (now husband) and I were, our love story, and what we were excited for in that season of engagement. He showed us that he cared, valued the overall concept of marriage, and wanted us to have solid photographic memories of one of the best days of our lives together. Right away, we trusted that Ivan would do a fantastic job at capturing who we were and what we represented as a couple, and that was truly a blessing. When we met Ivan in person a few months later to take our engagement photos, his artistic eye, ways of “scoping out” neat photo spots, and making the overall experience FUN was really something that made us even more excited to have him be a big part of our wedding day. It was enjoyable for us, too, to see this man be so in his element, uniquely knowing how and what to do to make us feel comfortable and enjoy the photographic experience. Plus, the photos turned out awesome! 

And then there was our wedding day. ❤️ Ivan knew how to lead, direct, and carry our (very large) bridal party through various photos on a cold, windy day. And he did this with such ease! I was particularly amazed that he memorized everyone’s name (we had 18 people in our bridal party!). The significance of simply saying people’s names made Ivan feel like a friend to us all, and what a special part he was of our amazing day. I can’t recommend Ivan Amssan Photography enough! We are so thankful that Ivan captured our wedding day with such lovely, pure, and raw images. Plus, he has some pretty great dance moves!"

We could go on, but we’ll let our people do the talking.
