hi! i'm olivia. but you can call me liv, strohmy, olive, or pretty much anything you can come up with. i'm just a goofy gal  living a simple little life with my husband/BFF jesse (which is where the last name salzwedel comes into play, oh, and there he is up top on our wedding day 3 years ago!) in the surrounding suburbs of  Portland, OR. i love sweatpants, swimming in the lake i grew up on (shoutout to sammamish, wa!), singing in the car (to hamilton of course), dancing my butt off at weddings, watching netflix with jesse, wearing my birkenstocks, getting dressed up, being with family, drinking coffee, drinking wine, praising my lord + savior all the day long, and taking pictures. lots and lots of them.  

if you know jesus, you know he loves to show up in crazy a** ways and bless the heck out of you for no reason. that's what he did with this business. he's been so present in this journey i've committed to and he's entrusting your wedding days with me for a reason.  jesus is so good, + to know him is the greatest thing i've ever been a part of. 

you are probably on the hunt for the perfect photographer to capture your wedding day. whether it be a big huge party or a quiet, intimate ceremony with just you two. there are so many of us to do the job. like, so so so many. and that's okay. but it makes choosing the right one tough. and i totally understand that. but, let's chat about your day. tell me the things you are most excited about. tell me what your dream dress looks like, show me that secret pinterest board...i want to know it ALL!  because i love my job. i love being a part of people's best days. i want to be more than just another vendor. i want to invest in who you are as people + get to know you. goodness i'm excited for you. really, really am.
