Yanko Ivanov is a professional freelance photographer based in Gurnee, Illinois, with over twelve years of experience. He specializes in portrait and wedding / event photography.
Though he studied Music Arts and Theology, Yanko decided to follow his passion for photography. In his eyes, music and photography work in perfect harmony; there has to be an image with every sound.
He became fascinated with photography at the age of seven when he started using his father’s 35mm camera; Yanko’s official career began in 2002 when he joined a small family-owned company in Gurnee. Several years later, he opened his own studio – Wedding Photo World – and Kalina Naydenova joined the company to form a team. In October 2014, Gurnee Business Recognition awarded Wedding Photo World with the “Best of 2014 Gurnee” for Wedding Photographer.
