ABOUT ME

Ivan Duran is an experienced, award-winning wedding photographer based in the Bay Area who specializes in delivering stunning, timeless images in which his clients (no matter how camera-shy they may be) feel authentically themselves. Though Ivan’s clients hire him for his artistry, they also come to value his kindly, grounding presence during a time that is always full of powerful emotions. In the end, Ivan’s work does more than just document one special day—it also captures the uniqueness of each new love story in a way that his clients cherish forever.

WHAT I OFFER

Nowadays, anyone can snap a photo with a smartphone, but I deliver something of a different caliber. My years of experience as a wedding photographer have made me an expert in both the joys and the stressors of weddings, and I know how to operate behind the scenes, doing all the leg-work that goes into creating truly amazing photographs so that my clients can just relax and be in the moment on their special day. 

 

I shoot a mix of classic, dramatic, and photojournalistic styles. My goal is always to create timeless and stunning images that are nonetheless genuine, reflecting my clients' unique love stories. I believe that a good photograph should do more than serve as a record of the past - it should tell a story that invites us to see the world through fresh eyes. I feel incredibly privileged to witness so many joyous occasions of love and celebration, and my clients are a constant source of inspiration for me.
