Ana Garcia // Photographer & Cinematographer

Hi, I am Ana! On the day of your wedding you will see me mostly with the bride, I am her exclusive professional photographer. It is such a privilege to capture the most precious moments between you and your loved ones. My passions are my faith and my family. I am the mom of whom I call my child genius, Cassandra. My sweet fella is my dear husband, Ivan. I thank God for these two important people in my life. My family is little but I am all about them!:) I am currently attending college and my goal is to become a doctor. I am a busy body and often you will find my husband and daughter telling me to sit down and relax. I love to rescue animals and I will not hesitate to stop in the middle of a road to save a turtle. One of my favorite scripture sums up my life’s principles: “Love, Joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith…against such things there is no law (Galatians 5:22).”

Ivan Garcia // PHOTOGRAPHER & CINEMATOGRAPHER

Hi, I am Ivan, the creative artist and CEO of Ana & Ivan. I have been married for 18 years to the love of my life, Ana, and we have a beautiful intelligent daughter, Cassandra. At a very early age I was fascinated with technology. I have developed a love for science and enjoy listening to the podcast of Neil deGrasse Tyson pretty much every day. Often I am in the kitchen cooking delicious meals for my family in my cast iron skillets because I love to experiment with flavors. My family says I have a funny laugh that is contagious. I love a good fresh pair of shorts and sandals in this Houston heat. I also love to use movie quotes to express myself to my family. My passion for photography began in High School and I have been doing it professionally since 2005. The invention of the camera has changed the world because now we can capture memories that will last a lifetime. I am humbled to use it and create beautiful images for our clients.

CASSANDRA GARCIA // ASSISTANT

Hi, I am Casie, daughter of my goofy dad, Ivan and fierce mom, Ana. They like to say that I am their one and only, because I am their only child. I am 18 years old, but often get told I look like I am 12. Growing up I considered myself a professional singer in the shower and an expert in air guitar. Learning how to play the violin, and now the cello, has taught me to appreciate music. I love bright colors, Netflix and my bedroom. My mentality is to be inspired by the people around me and use their life experiences to improve myself. I learned that communication and a positive attitude not only creates peace, but also strength in family. I have always known, not want to but need, to become a doctor to encourage other women into scientific fields and aid patients who have been intimidated by hospital regulations and costs. I plan to join nonprofit organizations and use my skills as a doctor to create something bigger than myself.

 
 
Selecting ANA&IVAN Photography to capture our special moments was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!

When we first met Ana and Ivan, my husband and I instantly knew that we wanted to work with them. Both Ana and Ivan were very genuine, and their passion for photography was evident in their photos.

Additionally, they were both accommodating to our busy schedules, and our bridal photos and engagement photos were stunning! We just got married, and cannot wait to see our wedding photos! Without reservation, I highly recommend this incredible husband-wife duo!
