With over twenty years as a photographer, Ivan Apfel began his career as a documentary photographer. His images have appeared on the front pages of newspapers and magazines published around the world. In 1997 one of his friends convinced him to document her wedding the way he has his previous subjects. This changed his whole outlook on documentary photography. In his past subjects, it was a benefit to remain removed from the subject he was covering. In documenting a wedding, he found it was the opposite. The more he allowed himself to become emotionally connected with the bride and groom, the more successful his images were. He has been addicted to documenting weddings ever since.

Since then, Ivan Apfel has also worked with commercial photographers developing his skills at mixing natural light and controlled studio lighting. This has allowed him to created natural bridal and bride and groom portraits with a commercial editorial look to them.

From the first meeting through delivery of your final album, Ivan Apfel will be a partner, helping insure that your wedding is a stress free event with photographs that will bring you joy for years to come.

A recent Maid of Honor said it best:

“Ivan, I think one word sums you up when it comes to a wedding: NECESSARY! You are creative, dependable, organized & EXPERIENCED. We could sense that you truly cared and love what you do!” – Tamara Magloire Read less

Ivan Apfel was a blessing to our wedding on July 12 2015. He capture very special moment in our wedding with a spectacular photo. Also, one of the many things we loved about Ivan was that we didn't pay him for certain amount of hours because he offered his service for the whole day for a reasonable price and a high quality of pictures!!! All we can say if you want to have amazing pictures with a experienced photographer choose Ivan; he is awesome!!!

Ivan is the best of the best in the Miami photography industry. He's extremely knowledgable about his field, so friendly and willing to answer any questions and guide you through each step of documenting your special day. He is extremely responsive; when I first inquired as to his services via his website late one night, he called me early the very next afternoon to book our meeting. For his expertise, he is extremely flexible in his timing and pricing and will work to get you the very best for your budget, like he did for my husband and I. We were so pleased and ecstatic with our final photos and the flawless album he put together for us. I would truly trust no one else with photographing such an important day. We look forward to being return costumes when the time comes for maternity photos. Trust Ivan! You can't go wrong!

In November of 2010 I decided to hire photographer Ivan Apfel for my wedding in March 2011. I had hopes that I would have received a digital cd with the high resolution pictures already, being that it has been almost three years since I hired him and since my wedding took place over two years ago. It is now October 2013 and we have yet to receive our pictures from the actual wedding day along with a response letting us know when they would be ready. We have been more than patient and unfortunately up to this point he has yet to complete the service we agreed on and after numerous failed attempts of contacting him I have decided to take action since he no longer responds to either mine or my husbands emails or phone calls. The one time he did respond, it was to tell me that he couldn't find my pictures. What professional photographer loses photographs and does not have a back-up of his work??? I have also reported him to the Better Business Bureau, to which he didn't respond either. Beware of hiring him. You might not have any photos to remember your special day even after spending a fortune.

Our photos are nothing short of amazing. Other photographers have set cliche places where they take photos of ALL of their clients. Not this photographer. Ivan takes your personality and vision into account to give you exactly what you want. He is a true artist. The knotty bride even featured our photos on her blog. Everyone has been extremely impressed with our photos, and we absolutely love them. Thanks, Ivan!

I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT IVAN, HIS TALENT, OR HIS SERVICE!! FROM THE MOMENT I MET HIM, AT A FRIEND'S WEDDING, I KNEW I HAD TO HAVE HIM! ONCE I SAW HER PICTURES I WAS EVEN MORE SURE THAT HE WAS THE PHOTOGRAPHER I NEEDED! HIS PICTURES CAPTURE THINGS THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN SEE. HE JUST HAS THAT EYE FOR BEAUTY. I THINK PICTURES ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE WEDDING BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONLY THING THAT LAST AND YOU SHOULD MAKE SURE YOU HIRE SOMEONE WHO WILL LEAVE THE BEST LASTING IMPRESSION!

There are truly no right words to describe Ivan's vision and skill when it comes to photography. He is remarkable!!! He manages to capture images that truly define the couples he works with. We were very fortunate and extremely happy to have him take our engagement pictures, which people still tell us how phenomenal and sexy they came out. And he photographed our wedding and did an even more beautiful job on it!! It brought tears to my eyes when he posted them on his blog. The images he captured showed the love and happiness my husband and I felt on our special day.
If you are looking for a nice, funny, professional photographer with truly creative genius at its best then Ivan is your man!! I highly recommend him to capture your special day :)
