STYLE & APPROACH
I have a two-fold approach to photography, as I blend elegantly crafted minimalist imagery with editorial in-the-moment photojournalism. Some of my images capture moments in flow, others are personal & quiet. Above all I like the process & results to be effortless, candid & stylish. I love getting to know my clients & weaving their personalities into my work - creating images that are meaningful while also producing images that feel like they came out of a magazine.
PLANNING & PREPARATIONS
When it comes to weddings, I know the dynamics of a wedding day inside & out. Whether it’s helping with scheduling & preparations, or getting a sense of your stylistic considerations, I work closely with you before the wedding to make sure we are well-prepared for the photography aspect of your wedding day. On the day of your wedding, I work discreetly & efficiently to make sure we get the shots you want, while also being able to enjoy the experience.
Hi, my name is a Marc and I’m a photographer based in Minneapolis. As Ivy & Ellis Photography I shoot weddings, portraits & editorial work. I aim to produce images that are authentic & simple, intimate & serene. I shoot using a minimalist technique drawing out the beauty of my subjects & the moments they share without distractions, giving your images an editorial polish that tell a story. My approach is organic and my aim is simple: I want to produce images that you never thought were possible, and capture photographic memories that feel true to your experience.
ON MINIMALISM & FILM
A technique you will see in a lot of my work is aesthetic minimalism. You will see it in many of my images - a simple backdrop that lets the beauty of my subjects or moments shine, a neutral color palette with warm skin tones, and an appreciation for clean lines, simplicity & honesty. It gives my images a look that feels editorial, magazine-like. I also shoot using a mix of film & digital. Shooting film informs my work - from framing of images, to how the skin tones come out. With these two techniques and years of experience guiding me, I find I can produce unique editorial collections & a wonderful organic experience for my clients.
