Welcome to ilyanne Photographic Art!
We are glad you have decided to visit our website, and are excited to work with you on creating images that will be cherished for many years to come.
Marc and I are a husband and wife team both in life as in our business. We both share the love and passion for photography, especially people and places.
Having traveled the world and living most of our lives in many different countries, we have realized that the world is a big and beautiful place, offering us wondrous areas to see and explore.
With the beauty of the Bay area just outside our door, we stray away from the classic studio with plain backgrounds. We combine our passion for artistic photography and the outdoors by having our sessions in the comfort of your homes, outside, or in a place that holds a special meaning to you.
Our style has been described as a beautiful blend of candid and traditional photography with an emphasis on photojournalism.
While we are extremely proficient in creating traditional posed portraits, a vast number of our creations are all about those candid moments that are too often forgotten in the chaos of everyday life. Together, we create a more contemporary, "free-style" type of photography that captures the beauty, the emotion and the indescribable joy of your special day from every possible angle.
Our goal when photographing life events (such as Weddings, B`nei mitzvah & more) is to be unobtrusive and let the moments happen spontaneously. This creates the opportunity to capture a moment in time without the need to interfere with the flow of your day.
We believe your portraits should tell a story about your personality, lifestyle and relationship with your loved ones. When photographing children, we specialize in lifestyle photography, a more relaxed form of portraiture that captures the real essence of your child and you.
Marc`s previous experience as a circus instructor has a wonderful way of putting everyone at ease. Children and adults alike feel naturally relaxed in his presence and embrace our calm nature and friendly, outgoing personality. His playful attitude combined with my patience in working with children (that comes from having three of my own!) enables us to create images that evoke emotion and capture feelings.
We work closely with you to make imagination intertwine with the most precious moments in life. Thus, encapsulating what the true essence of art is all about by producing one of a kind portraits that are timeless, which your family will cherish for generations to come.
We look forward to working with you and invite you contact us with any questions you may have!
