Tobias Engel Biography – Tobias Engel Wiki
Tobias Engel is a photographer, tech entrepreneur, and aspiring film director. He is the husband of Ivy Love Getty, the great-granddaughter of J. Paul Getty, the Minnesota-born founder of Getty Oil who, in the mid-20th century, was the richest man in the world — with a fortune of $1.2 billion (around $9.1 billion today).
Ivy Getty is the daughter of John Gilbert Getty and Alyssa Boothby. Her mother, Alyssa Boothby, also known as Alyssa Jewels, is a jewelry designer. Ivy lost her father, John Gilbert Getty, to a drug overdose, and her grandmother, Ann Getty, to a heart attack.
Her 52-year-old musician father died of heart conditions triggered by an accidental fentanyl overdose in a San Antonio hotel room on Nov. 20, 2020. Her grandmother Ann, who raised Ivy in the Getty mansion, died at age 79, two months before her own son passed.

Billionaire heiress Ivy Love Getty got married to her photographer Tobias Engel in three-day wedding ceremony in November 2021 in San Francisco. “Queens Gambit” star Anya Taylor-Joy was the maid of honor and the ceremony was officiated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Guests at the wedding included singer Olivia Rodrigo, Princess Olympia of Greece, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, San Francisco mayor London Breed, Vanessa Getty, designer Wes Gordon, Mimi Wade, Vogue journalist Hamish Bowles, Fletcher Cowan, and filmmaker Christian Coppola. Mark Ronson was DJ at a pre-wedding ’60s Mod-themed bash, and Earth, Wind and Fire performed, the New York Post reported.
The 26-year-old artist and model Ivy Love Getty first met photographer Tobias Alexander Engel through a family member, before meeting each other again at Paris Fashion Week.
“I saw this cute guy who was taking photos of the event and of me,” she told Vogue. “I naturally went over, and we started talking. Quickly we realized that we had met before, the year before.”
Photographer Tobias Engel asked Ivy to marry him at sunset in Capri. “After attending the Unicef Ball, we went to Capri for three days,” Ivy told Vogue. “Normally, I pick where we go out to eat, but this time Toby insisted he pick. This didn’t raise any red flags, but when I got to the restaurant, I thought to myself ‘Oh he really planned this. We had a table overlooking the entire island away from the rest of the restaurant. The waitress came, and we ordered our food. As the sun was getting ready to set, we went outside to take photos of it. Toby set his iPhone timer and got down on one knee. The timer went off at the perfect moment as we have the most incredible photo.”
