Olivia is a wedding photographer based in Portland, Oregon. Her candid + photojournalistic style is inspired by her passion to document her couples’ weddings simply + honestly— with the hopes that they print, frame + enjoy their photos for the decades to come. She guarantees that each time someone steps in front of her camera they will feel comfortable, valued + taken care of. Her hope when photographing people in love is that they leave feel more connected, and more in love than before. Inspired by her own parents’ wedding photos, Olivia strives to document people how they actually act, together, and how their wedding days actually unfold. She’s a little goofy, sarcasm is her second language, and she’s been told she’s a fast friend.

These two are anything but traditional -- in the best way of course. Sara's attention to detail (she's an incredible graphic designer, she designed all the paper!) and both her + Darrell's amazing style topped off their family-oriented wedding and reception perfectly. Minimalism heaven. And that bouquet? Gee wiz Solabee! 

The day started out calm and breezy. Little bit of rain. So Portland, right?
 

I always get to excited to see my brides on the morning of their wedding day. It is probably one of my favorite parts...getting to give them a big hug and check in on how they're feeling about it all. I always like to come a little early so I can visit with them for a minute or two. A bride on her wedding day is one of the best things ever. So joyful, excited, antsy, looking so gorgeous (Alyssa Fitchie on Sara's hair and makeup - nailed it, as always!) Sara was sweet as can be when I arrived and I knew we'd be on the same mind-wave length all day long. That gal just gets me. She's the type of person who doesn't even need to say much, but you just feel like your best friends. (Hi Sara, I miss you ;)). 

D+S were so excited to get married already, and their calmness was such a testament to that. they were so confident. So sure. They were ready to roll and make it official. It was such a wonderful day of nothing but good. Good good good. And so many laughs. They couldn't keep smiles off their faces. I would tell them to do a serious face, and alas, laughter. I loved it. 


So thankful to have been able to be a part of this day and tell this story.
