Ivan is a phenomenal photographer who at the same time is able to be true to his original and refreshing style, while making sure he listens to what customers want. My husband and I did a maternity photo shoot with him and couldn't be happier with the results - good quality digital pictures, lots of variety to choose from in different styles, and delivered fast to us. We will for sure be calling him again for other future family pics. More...

My family can be a bit serious, but Ivan managed to pull out the child in all of us, which was as much as I could hope for! You can see the little girl written on my mother's face and the imps buried within my brothers and grumpy teens. It was a pleasure being photographed by Ivan. Thank you. More...

My experience with Mind on Photography was great! Ivan was the photographer for my wedding and he was exceptional. He was very patient, friendly, and a genuine person. You can see that he is very passionate about photography. He made our day even more fun with the pictures and captured every moment. Ivan also delivered our wedding photos very promptly and they were beautiful. I highly recommend Mind On Photography for any occasion. More...

Ivan is an extremely perceptive artist. He does not just get your best smile and pose and capture them in a setting with perfect background and lighting, whether natural or installed quickly and expertly. These are just the tools of the craft. Ivan does much more. He elicits the better selves out of you that you hoped existed but wasn’t sure. Are you really that smart, confident, sophisticated, that magnificent? Ivan demonstrates that in fact you are, if only sometimes. The techniques that he uses are various and not always perceptible to an untrained eye: he might engage you in a clever conversation such that you forget to maintain your fake “picture-perfect” expression, or casually divert your attention, changing your aspect momentarily. All the while he is clicking away, to later cull from the hundreds or thousands of images the few that betray your actual admirable self, and then brings them to perfection. He literally makes a better person out of you. Ultimately, the proof is in the pudding. Ivan’s shots stand out: they are unmistakably professional but also plausible and authentic; flattering but realistic. They tell a story which is, remarkably, not his but yours. More...

I am not exactly sure how Ivan achieves this remarkable effect; perhaps he got me to drop my fake “picture-perfect” expression when he engaged me in a clever conversation such that I forgot whatever I came to him for, even though he would be clicking away all the while. Later, he culled from the hundreds of images the few magic ones and brought them to perfection.

Ivan with Mind On Photography was absolutely amazing for many reasons! First off, we needed a photographer for a holiday weekend for my wedding and reached out with not much time to spare and he answered right away and took our event which gave us such relief! It was also a hot and extremely humid day and he did what he had to do to get all the photos we needed outside and inside no matter the obstacles (including our crazy families!)! He was so sweet and so easy to work with! He got our photos back to us faster that we expected and they were absolutely breath taking! If we ever have another event with the need for a photographer, we will certainly be reaching out to him, no question! I would most certainly recommend him and his company to anyone for any event!

Ivan was an amazing photographer!! He had a clear vision and wasn't afraid to try new things to capture unique and gorgeous moments of my partner and I. He wasn't pushy and was able to be involved without being overbearing. He was also open to any ideas and suggestions that my partner and I asked for. He was prompt with the photo edits which we greatly appreciated and loved. They came out more stunning than we could have imagined. I would absolutely recommend Ivan Djikaev's Mind on Photography for any event that you want photographed!! More...

My experience with Ivan was awesome! He was documenting my daughter's graduation and I was glad I hired him because the official photographs we received from school were not good at all. Ivan took family photos with larger group of people as well as photos during the ceremony. He was able to make people relax and everyone looked great including people who are typically hard to capture - I was surprised we did not need to edit any pictures - that did not happened to me before and we had photographers for important family events many times. He was flexible moving to different locations and dealing with all the commotion surrounding events that involve many people. It was definitely worth to have our own photographer. More...

I had my first photoshoot with Ivan when I was 15 and my mom went with me to the shoot. I got great images, and still used my headshot from that shoot for a long time. I noticed that in my few years of modeling, my photos with Ivan were the sharpest, best photos of me. He is capable of high fashion photography, professional photography, wedding photography, and quite possibly anything. What is second to none is how much fun I have had every time I shoot with Ivan. Thank you Ivan! More...

Picking Mind on Photography was the best decision when it came to my wedding photos. Ivan went above and beyond. He was professional and personable. After scheduling my wedding day, due to circumstances, I had to have my wedding ceremony and reception on two separate days. Ivan made sure to come to both events. The pictures of the wedding ceremony were gorgeous. During the reception he caught perfect moments on camera. I would recommend Ivan to anyone and everyone. We will definitely be calling him for future events. Thank you again Ivan for the great memories! More...
