During the photoshoots, she gave great directions and made it so easy for us to feel like ourselves - which always make the best photos. 100/100 I would hire her again and again. If you want genuine, gorgeous photos you have to get Olivia to come!
The photos she took are beautiful and we have her to thank for a lifetime for providing them! is professional, passionate and super sweet. She sent the highlight photos to us while we were still on our honeymoon - and the rest shortly after that! I would absolutely recommend her and her team!
I am usually very uncomfortable having my picture taken, but Olivia made us feel very relaxed. Our photos are natural and exactly what we were hoping for. She was also very quick to get us several preview photos back. We are beyond happy with our experience and would highly recommend Olivia as a wedding photographer!

Both my unbiased and totally biased opinion say yes. I value the uniqueness and complexity of all of my couples and strive to express that in my work. Your photos will not look exactly like my past couples because you are not them, you are you - in all of your wild and lovely ways. My advice when searching for a photographer: find someone who shares a similar outlook on life as you. This may be death to my business, but it's ok if it isn't me. I want us both to be so fricken excited about working together that when it hurts to say goodbye. Because for me, I get attached to the folks I work with. You are more to me than clients, and I hope you feel that I am more than a vendor to you.
In the end, I'd love for you to be so sure it's worth it, that it isn't even a question.
On average, couples typically spend $4000 with me on their wedding day.
This is the part where I show up, compliment the heck out of you, and make you feel like the amazing humans you are when in front of my camera.
For weddings, you can expect 2-3 planning calls and in depth questionnaires to make sure every aspect of your day is covered. I also suggest scheduling an engagement session where we can meet up + get to know each other before the wedding!
For sessions, you can expect an in depth questionnaire that will help me get to know you as a couple. I also meet up with my couples 30-60 minutes prior to sessions to grab drinks or coffee!
After you've stalked around my website and believe we are a good fit, please fill out my contact form with as much information as possible! Once I get your inquiry, I will respond in 24 hours with additional information and availability.
Keep in mind I am generally booked 3-6 months out for weddings and 1 month in advance for sessions. I am currently booking for 2021 and 2022 weddings, so it is not too early to reach out!
Gallery delivery day. Full wedding galleries are delivered between 6-10 weeks after the event, and sessions in 2-4 weeks.
I love working with couples that are equal parts fun and light hearted, but rooted in deep connection. More than anything, I want our time to be equal parts fun and meaningful. My hope is to share some laughs and leave feeling like friends.
Whether it’s your story or the way you’ve arranged your wedding, I’m here for the couples and weddings that don’t quite fit a traditional mold of what getting married looks like. Sneaking off to New Orleans to elope, or are opting out of a white dress? I’m here for it!
What this doesn’t mean is unplanned or unprepared. But think more so, go with the flow, roll with the punches kinda of vibe. My favorite days to photograph aren’t the perfect ones, but the ones that are lovely and meaningful to you as a couple.
For weddings, you can expect at least 50 per hour of coverage. For sessions, it ranges anywhere from 75-150 depending on how much time we spend together.
Yes! Many of my weddings take place out of state. I have a few places that I love to travel to frequently, as well as places that I am dying to visit! In addition, I am willing to travel anywhere! Travel fees are included in the customized quote, and based on standard airfare rate + 2 nights lodging accommodations (3 for international). Discounted rates for any bucket list location. Custom quotes welcome!
Places I travel to frequently (other than HI & MI) : California // Texas
Bucket List Locations: Zion // Maine // Iceland // Japan // Ireland
You can bank on me sending previews within 24 hours of your session or event! From there, sessions have a turn around time of 2-4 weeks. Galleries for weddings take anywhere from 6-10 weeks for delivery depending on the time of year.
New Orleans // Hawaii // Michigan. I live in the New Orleans area, have my family in Michigan and my in-laws in Hawaii. Therefore, I have home "bases" in each state. Any weddings booked in these three states are inclusive of travel expenses.
We'll definitely work together on this. I want you to bring several options from your closet for each of you, and we will create a couple of styles that best suit the location(s) that we are shooting in. I'll also be sending you a what to wear guide as well.
If I am traveling for your wedding, travel expenses will be factored into the initial pricing guide that I send to you upon inquiry. There will be no additional expenses to account for outside of that number.
100% yes absolutely. This is not just for me, but for you as well. Contracts are strictly between the couple and myself, regardless of who is paying for services.
I offer a 5% discount for all active duty military, first responders and social service providers (social workers, teachers + nurses), and a 5% discount for those using Aloha Bridal Connections on any island of Hawaii. I also offer a 10% kama'aina discount.
YES! Absolutely. As a transplant to New Orleans myself, I’ve learned from experience how to navigate the city as a newbie. I’d love to offer my guidance and recommendations of other wedding vendors and how to best navigate the area.
Anytime, my friends! Weather is generally best from October thru May, and it gets fairly warm in the summer months. With that being said, there are great discounts and lesser crowds in the summer months, so don’t count them out!
