Sandra and her assistant Yve photographed our wedding in October 2013 at the private property By Wind and Sea in Big Sur. They were both very flexible, professional, and work very well together to capture many different styles and looks. They were able to capture beautiful moments, in fact over 1,500 pictures in a 4 hour coverage. Sandra used her experiences and recommendations to help me feel comfortable about releasing control and trusting her with our "big day" as it related to photographically capturing the moments and emotions. As it relates to pre and post wedding photo selections and album creation; Sandra has been flexible and easy to communicate with by email and phone as we live 3 hours away from each other.

WOW!!! We just reviewed our album layout and we were so thrilled. The photography is GORGEOUS. There were so many beautiful images and moments captured that the hardest part was making our selection. The album design is a work of art - beautifully designed - with perfect attention to detail. I honestly don’t know if I can find the words to describe how much my husband and I will cherish this album.
Sandra, we can’t say thank you enough! Your beautiful photographs, patience, kindness and workmanship has been a true blessing.

Sandra and her assistant photographed our 10 year wedding vow renewal at Chaminade Resort in Santa Cruz this last weekend and we haven't stopped talking about what an exceptional experience we had. From the first time we met to the end of our fabulous evening, Sandra made sure she captured everything we asked for. She worked within our budget and was very respectful of it.

I was checking in to the resort a day early and sure enough I ran in to Sandra. She was there looking over the grounds, checking out the lighting and ensuring we had several locations to shoot in. Many of our guests kept commenting on how great she was and always seemed to everywhere but all at once. She made us feel so comfortable and we never had to worry about getting the right shot because I knew it was handled. If you are still looking for a photographer, stop now, you have found her!

Sandra Ivany photographed our small weddiing in Lover's Point in Monterey with reception after at Gatherings. We have never had such lovely pictures. I consider myself to not be photogenic and my husband hates to have his picture taken. However, somehow with the beautiful light and scenery - we now have pictures we will treasure forever. These pictures are amazing. We felt totally relaxed during the photo session as Sandra captured our natural moments together rather than staging or posing us.
Sandra's artistry shines thru in our pictures.
I was somewhat confused about our scheduling. However, Sandra worked closely with us - almost like a wedding planner - and helped us create a scheule that really worked beautifully. Her assitant was a pleasure to work with as well.

Sandra is an INCREDIBLY talented and artistic photographer. Her images are STUNNING.
I loved the way she worked with us during the couple pictures and just let us have our time together & be ourselves. The pictures shine thru how relaxed we felt.

As a marketing professional it was very important for me to find the right photographer and I consider myself exceptionally selective with photography. But Sandra's websites (yes - she has 2: http://www.ivanyweddings.com… and her personal and magazine work on: http://www.sandraivany.com…) impressed me from the beginning. Her work has been published in all sorts of national magazines and her talent and experience shines through in her work.

Sandra went above and beyond by spending much time with me helping to plan my wedding schedule to make the day flow flawlessly. I felt she was as dedicated to making the day perfect as I was. We thought her rates were also surprisingly affordable too.

We decided to invest in a wedding album & the album she created for us was designed by a graphic artist and is a stunning piece of art.

Sandra did a fabulous job photographing our wedding. We couldn't be happier with the way all the pictures turned out. In fact, the most difficult aspect of working with Sandra was picking the photos to include (and, conversely, not include) in the wedding album. She took almost 300 photos that were of sufficient quality to be considered for the album. We had to narrow that down to around 75. The resulting wedding album is a work of art. It's spectacular. We will cherish that album for the rest of our lives.

Sandra's photos are gorgeous, of course, with the requisite beauty shots of the bouquet, the cake, etc. But what sets her work apart from others is her ability to take photos that are not posed. Her photos are full of natural, sincere expressions of human emotion. She captured the true essence of our wedding which was the people who joined us. We relive our wedding every time we look at her photos because her photos don't just remind us of what happened, they remind us of how we felt and who we shared those special moments with.
