A little bit more of what I'm all about 

 

i've shot over 100 weddings. i do NOT say that to brag.  i only say it to tell you that i have seen it a lot. and i've learned a lot. about weddings, but also about who i am as a photographer. 

 

i'm that behind the scenes, let moments unfold as they go, kind of photographer. the one that lets emotions and laughs and inevitable hiccups roll but still manages to stick to the timeline kind of photographer. the one that cares more about moments than poses. the one that lets you be you instead of trying to fit your day into a mold of a static 'go through the motions' kind of day. the one that wants to know you, be your confidant and eye contact bud when your uncle joe won't stop bombarding you with his point and shoot camera all day. your relentless encourager when the anxiety creeps in. 

 

i'm also the photographer that sees your ceremony as something incredibly sacred. a place that needs space to breathe + doesn't need a camera clad woman running around like a madman. i respect your moments, i don't interrupt them, and i can pick up on social and emotional cues when it's my time to chime in, and when it's my time to step back.

Kind words

 

olivia is the whole package! her images are consistently stunning and flooded us with so many emotions. she's flexible and relaxed, doesn't let a schedule stress her (or you). and she's one of those people that makes you feel like an instant best friend and genuinely shares in your excitement. olivia brought so much peace and joy to our wedding day – we even had several family members tell us on our wedding day (before seeing any photos) how incredible our photographer was. olivia is the one– hire her!

olivia's work speaks for itself. it's absolutely stunning. but working with her and having her around for some of your most special moments is even better! she has a calm, collected presence no matter what chaos your day brings. she takes the responsibility and the weight of her job very seriously, while keeping everything relaxed and focused on the couple. she's so skilled at capturing those incredible candid and natural moments that really make your tummy turn when you get your photos back. my family kept saying that they didn't even know she was there throughout the day until they saw the beautiful photos afterwards. she makes it all about you and she cares-- very, very deeply. i wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful woman.

to sum up olivia in a word, i would say, "magic." from our engagement photos to the day of the wedding, olivia has a grace and ease about her that makes the experience natural. on the day of my wedding, olivia and her assistant captured the sweetest moments that i don't even remember happening! she had a perfect mixture of classic wedding photos with artistic, candid moments. olivia has a way about truly getting to know you and your partner. for any event, special moment or occasion, olivia will be my girl!
