For the roving wanderer,
the enchanted lovers,
and all the fae folk in between; lets capture a magical moment

what is the Olivia Louise Photography experience? 

My goal is to make your elopement day as wondrous and exciting as possible, weaving a magical story of your day through the finished photo gallery. 

From forested hikes  to sunset elopements on the beach, I will be here to provide you with The Olivia Louise Photo Experience like no other.

I aim to bring you EPIC shots from your elopement while also having a blast doing it, and making you feel so comfortable in front of the camera you forget it's even there. I like to give a lot of action based prompts that inspire movement, to best capture those candid moments of joy. 

My favorite kind of shots to capture are those of grand, sweeping views, with two madly in love people  surrounded by the splendor and wildness of nature.  

So here's
how it works

 When you book with me you're not just hiring a photographer, you're also hiring a planner and bubbly extrovert who is here to make sure YOU have the best day possible. 

As soon as you book with me you'll receive a super informative elopement planning guide for you to peruse at your leisure, with so many helpful hints for your elopement day including vendor recommendations, timeline planning tips, and so much more!

I then work with you to figure out location, craft a timeline, obtain permits, and get you hyped for the most important day of your life. 

I'll also be available for unlimited amounts of phone calls to make planning as easy as possible, so you can worry less and look forward to getting married to the love of your life!

here's how you know
we'd be a good fit:

You love edits with moody, warm, rich colors versus light and airy photos. 

You don't care about getting your clothes wet
if it means dipping your feet in the waves.

You would much rather elope in the great outdoors than have a ceremony inside.

You've always wanted to get dressed up like royalty and run barefoot through the forest. 

You can relate to Belle when she says "I want adventure in the great wide somewhere" 

You see a stranger’s puppy & it takes everything in you not to run up & cuddle it.

Your dress gets dirt on it, and you shrug.

You think ice cream & wine is always an acceptable dinner option. Always.

You LIVE for the feeling of sunshine on your skin & wind in your hair.

You’re already screaming YASSSS WHERE DO I BOOK YOU?

Such a positive experience 

"Olivia is such an amazing photographer and you will never be disappointed with the stunning shots she takes! She brings such a fun and positive energy to the shoot that makes you feel very comfortable and confident!"

I am based in Portland, Oregon
but always happy to travel! 

Where are you located?

Other than mini sessions I don't have a cap for the number  of images you'll get because I like to give as many as possible!

How Many Images Are Included?

 I don't give out RAW or unedited images as the way I edit my images for the final product is a reflection of my brand.

Do You Give Out Unedited Photos?

I have a super easy online payment set up that takes credit cards and bank transfers, and I take venmo as well! 
Checks are not accepted.

How Does Payment Work?

Simply click the Book Now button or visit my Contact page to inquire and I'll be in touch!

How Do I Book You?

If an emergency happens and I am unable to make it I will reach out to a trusted associate photographer to shoot your wedding, and then I edit the photos myself to keep the style you want!

What Happens If You Can’t Be At Our Wedding?

Deposits are non refundable but if you reschedule, your retainer amount can go towards your new wedding date. If you cancel before 30 days of your wedding and I am able to rebook the date you won't pay the additional balance due. 

What If We Cancel/Reschedule Our Date?

I started my wedding photography business in January of 2021. I majored in photography at Seattle Pacific University, but have been passionate about photography since I was 17!

How Long Have You Been A Photographer?

Unless there's a tree branch in the way or glare on glasses, I don't use photoshop to manipulate your body as I want your true beauty to shine through. The only time I will edit skin is if there is a blemish that will be gone in 2 weeks anyway. 

Will You Photoshop Us?

I always want to make the best of a bad situation, so if it's raining or overcast I'm still happy to shoot as it can be such a beautiful end result! For portrait sessions (not weddings or elopements) you do always have the option to reschedule due to inclement weather if you so desire.

What Happens If The Weather Is Bad?

Earthy tones and colors that aren't too bright or neon are best, and it's good to coordinate outfits with your boo if doing a couples shoot so patterns don't clash.

 Check out my blog here all about what to wear for a shoot:

What Do We Wear To Our Photoshoot?

Not currently but I do sometimes have special offers on my print shop! 

Do You Offer Discounts?

5-6 weeks for wedding packages and 2-3 weeks for portrait sessions. 

What Is Your Turnaround?

If you purchase a package with 6 or more hours of coverage then travel within Washington and Oregon state is complimentary.  Otherwise there will be additional fees to cover gas, lodging, food, etc. 

How Does Travel Expenses Work?

Absolutely! If you book n elopement with me I will send over a 100 page pdf planning guide that's super informative and am happy to help you craft your timeline and figure out location. 

Do You Help In The Planning Process?

While my speciality is weddings and elopements I'm always happy to do portrait and family sessions when it's not busy season! 

Do You Photograph Families, Seniors, Etc.?
