Clients reviews


Ivo took our pre-wedding photos in Bruges and he really did an amazing job. Our criteria for the photographer was someone who has good photographing skills and knows the city well, and I must say Ivo is the best in this aspect. All the locations he suggested were so beautiful. We were so surprised when we received the photos from him, as they are way beyond our expectations. He managed to capture our happy moments as well as the scenic view of Bruges. I would definitely recommend Ivo to anyone who wishes to take their engagement/ pre-wedding photos in Belgium.

We highly recommend having Ivo as your photographer. I found him online and we met for the first time the day of our wedding ceremony in Bruges. He perfectly captured our day and brought life and emotion to every photo. His photos tell our beautiful story and we appreciated his company while taking photographs. He kept it light and easy-going, which in return helped us relax and be ourselves. You will not regret hiring him and he will exceed your expectations. Thanks again so much Ivo!

Ivo did our maternity photo session.
He is very responsive, easy to communicate. On the day of the shoot we immediately found a common ground. Ivo is talented, has an eye for a detail and knows how to play with the light. We very much like his vision about the composition and the way he tells the photo story. He will let you feel at ease and guide you what to do.
We were very pleased with the result and we certainly can highly recommend Ivo.
Thanks a million once again, 
Liene and Karel

By looking at our weddding pics Ivo took, it brings back all the emotions of this beautiftul day. He succeeded in shooting all little big moments which give us such a warm feeling. We hardly noticed Ivo was there during the day, but he gave us a tremendous remebrance to cherish.

Eva Van Elst

Ivo took our engagement photos and our wedding day photos and he did an incredible job! Photography is one of my passions and it was important for me to have a photographer with a similar vision to my own. He exceeded my expectations. He made us feel comfortable and was able to catch natural moments which was extremely important to me. Unlike most photographers, he captures true emotion and not only posed portraits. He has a way of being there and not being there at the same time, capturing moments without you realizing his presence. I appreciated his commitment to get the shots we wanted and to make sure to take our ideas and make them a reality. On our wedding day, I especially appreciated the time I spent with Ivo as he made me feel relaxed and comfortable while photographing my preparations. I would recommend Ivo for any event or special occasion you need to be photographed, and I know we will be using him for any family photos in the future.

Vicky McIntyre


Ivo is an amazing photographer. We really wanted him be our wedding photographer but unfortunately it was not possible so we decided to have a post/wedding photoshoot with him. The photoshoot itself went much better than expected, Ivo has a lovely personality and good sense of humor so both my husband and I felt relaxed and genuinely happy to be able to take some nice family pictures. We knew Ivo would take great pictures and so he did 
🙂 We always appreciated the fact that people look happy and at their ease in his pictures, and now we know it is due not only to his talent but also to his personality and to that little magic camera 
🙂 (he has a very good camera that doesn’t look intimidating and it doesn’t make any noise so in fact sometimes you even you’re being photographed). We’ll definitely come back to Ivo for more photos when the family grows and we warmly recommend him as an excellent photographer.

If you never have experience of photo shooting before, we highly recommend working with Ivo to capture natural look and emotions. You can totally enjoy photo shooting time at a meaningful place.
We love travel and decided to find a photographer during our trip. We found Ivo through his website and checking his portfolio, we were impressed by the natural looking style.
We met Ivo in Bruges, and it’s also our first time meeting. Before meeting, we contact by email. He is helpful during the photo shooting with motivated words. We have never done travel pictures and feel quite nervous, but don’t worry, Ivo is really good at chilling people out and making yourself relax. ^^
We had 3 hours photo shoot, and my fiance surprised me and proposed to me during an engagement shoot in Bruges with Ivo. We have many photos in different places, and Ivo also introduced us town’s history and some fun facts.
Ivo did a great job on our engagement photos! We can feel that he’s trustworthy and thoughtful person. Ivo gave us a preview after shooting in a week and it didn’t take long before he shared the portfolio with us. We are so excited when getting all the photos, and the wonderful works are great excellence beyond our expectation.
Ivo, thank you for giving us great memories. We can’t wait to share them with our family and friends. Wonderful experience and photos can treasure for life, and working with you is definitely one of the best things during our trip.

Ivo made our day very special. He was there to capture our engagement. Pictures turned out perfectly, and he had them ready in less than a week. He knew his way around Brugge, so we were able to go to some great, unique spots that we would not have known about. I highly recommend hiring Ivo! You will not be disappointed!

Grace Ward

We got married a year ago, but we couldn’t feel heartbeat when we have a look in our wedding photos. So we decided to have new wedding photos with good feelings, in magical city Bruges. We found Ivo from his website and decided to work with him when we check his portfolio. All photos are really alive! Every photo has it’s own story. Quickly we picked up a date and we had our photo shoot in very sunny and hot Bruges day. Ivo chose many different spots for shooting, each of them is gorgeous. We had 2 hours photo shoot, bu nobody believes it:) we have too many photos in too many differet location. We are so glad to Ivo for giving us great memories. He is such a great photographer, we are really in love with each photo, we couldn’t decide which one is our favourite:)
Again and again thank you Ivo!

Ivo is truly a brilliant photographer, when we first met him in Brugge, where we took our engagement photo session. Even it was -11 degree and frozen cold out there, he was still cooperative and friendly, and since he knows the city so well so he suggested a lot places and poses for us, we therefore got one of the best set of photos. Thx Ivo! My sister and brother in law are also extremely happy about the photo session you shoot for them in Paris, brilliant!

Wang Shuwei

Ivo is so talented and we cannot say enough about how he transformed us and Brussels into such stunning photos. After a friend had her wedding photographed, she recommended that we take some pictures while traveling (we’re from the U.S.) We have never done travel pictures, but after our experience with Ivo, we wouldn’t do a major trip without it. We now have pictures of a lovely city that captured us so perfectly.
And…I think it is important to note that Ivo himself is a pleasure to work with. There are many people who can take pictures and capture a moment, but the whole experience of scheduling, meeting him, having him walk around Brussels with us, and then the final gallery was easy and better than we could have expected. If we’re ever looking for Belgian or nearby pictures again, we will contact him in a heartbeat. Thank you Ivo!!

Kathleen Lorey

My fiance proposed on a trip to Europe, and he surprised me with an engagement shoot in Bruges with Ivo. What a treat! Ivo spent 2 hours with us, taking us to the most beautiful of locations and loosening us up to make for better photos. Those two hours were such a blast, and within days he shared a sample of the photos with us. Wow. It didn’t take long before Ivo shared the whole portfolio, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with how stunning the pictures turned out. We will treasure these photos (and the memories of taking them) forever. We can’t wait to share them with our friends and family!

Ellen Mendelsohn Klasson

Ivo is fantastic! My fiance and I took a trip to Europe and wanted to take our engagement pictures while we were in Bruges. I found Ivo online and am SO happy that I did!
Neither my fiance or I have ever had professional photography done before, but Ivo made us feel comfortable and not awkward.
Our pictures are amazing and I am so happy with the whole experience.
I would recommend Ivo to anyone!

Magie Plotner

We got married on June 24th this year and we couldn’t be more happy with are wedding pictures! Ivo has great skills and nice character, a real pleasure to work with! During the whole wedding day he was very patient and pretty much invisible which was very pleasant. Everything is very professional and the result is just magnificent!! We highly recommend his services. Thank you so much Ivo for our beautiful pictures 
🙂

It was great wedding photograph experience with Ivo in Brugge! We are so lucky to have ivo as a photographer for us. We found Ivo while searching the photographer in internet and we looked him previous studies. We admired his photographs then we contact with him. We have meet Ivo the photoshooting day first time, but he is very kind, helpfull and enjoyable. He motivated us during photo shoot. So we didn’t get any negative energy. Also the people in Brugge was great 
🙂 thank you for everything Ivo

Nagehan Şen

We had a great experience with Ivo for our wedding photography. 
We met up first to discuss what we wanted, which was really useful. 
On the day he was friendly and professional, but frankly after a little while we forgot he was there and just relaxed and enjoyed the day! Love the photos that have come out of it and will treasure them forever. Thanks Ivo!

Emily Stewart

Ivo took family pictures for us when we traveled to Brugge with our 9-month old daughter. We had a wonderful time taking pictures and getting to know Ivo. He made our time enjoyable and showed us around the town. The pictures are wonderful and we love having them as a souvenir from Brugge. He captured our family perfectly. We would definitely contact Ivo again if we come back to Belgium!! Highly recommend him!

Louise Kastrup King

We worked with Ivo twice during the course of the last year. Both occasions were great fun and we were more than happy with the resulting photos!
We appreciated his capacity to make us feel at ease, his creative ideas, his openness to take on our creative (and often crazy) ideas, his attention to detail and to overall process (for example: he made sure that we don’t miss out on any “family formation” during the wedding photos- he was thinking for us to make sure that we have everyone in every possible combination. We particularly appreciated this, as we wouldnt have been able to think so sharply in the middle of the wedding day).
Ivo is very pleasant company, has good sense of humour, is discreet in the way he works so overall it was a super positive experience to have him photograph our wedding and we would certainly and wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone!

We’re from the US and Brussels is one of our favorite cities, so I knew I wanted to have engagement pictures done while we were on vacation there this past December. I googled photographers and immediately found Ivo because of the wedding he photographed in Delirium. I loved the style with which he took his pictures- nothing looked staged, everything seemed organic and genuine. I knew he would be able to portray the happiness I wanted people to feel when they looked at the photos. So I reached out to him and booked a shoot. I was extremely nervous leading up to the shoot, because I didn’t want to mess them up, but Ivo immediately put us at ease. We started in a public place that had less people so we could get comfortable and we had nice chats when we walked from one location to the other. We hit all of the locations I had suggested but he interpreted each one in his own way to get the most amazing pictures. We trusted him and let him work. I was on edge waiting for the pictures because I was worried they might not be good (because of me lol) and when I finally got them I nearly cried from happiness (and relief). Every one was better than the last. My mom, watching a slideshow of all the pictures, exclaimed “I have no idea how you’re going to pick from all of these!” I am obsessed with the pictures and how they turned out. I highly recommend Ivo for engagement pictures- if we didn’t live in California we’d probably book him for our wedding too.
