My style is a custom photography as a mix of fine art and documentary photography.  My goal is to deliver unique images that are timeless, romantic, real and perfectly reflect the story of your wedding day. I love to capture candid moments through the day, raw emotions, and true storytelling! I'm creating unique images what speaks to your heart! The few words used most by my clients to describe me is "passion", "professionalism", "creativity", "relaxed" photographer:

“I cannot begin to express how incredible Olga is! Photography is more than a job for her. It is certainly her passion. We were quite nervous about booking a photographer from overseas, but Olga’s quick, detailed responses, kind and caring demeanor, and extensive portfolio made her an easy choice. On our wedding day, she blended right in to the happenings of the day and captured everything just as I remember the day happening. Our wedding photos are beyond amazing, and we received them very quickly. Without reservation, I would recommend Olga as a wedding photographer. We are so lucky to have had her as part of our day.” Kara & David, Flat White Waihi Beach, Waikato, New Zealand

"I could not rave enough about Olga & Matt. The minute i made contact with Olga i knew i had to have her photograph my wedding. As soon as i saw her photos i needed to book her! Not only that, she is so kind and made my husband and I so comfortable. Everyone that has seen our photos say how amazing they are, every moment i felt was captured, every happy every sad every funny moment they managed to get! I had to unfortunately move my wedding to a closer date (giving Olga only 5 weeks to get organised) as my mother is terminally ill, and sure enough Olga was there. Olga i could never thank you enough for these amazing photos you have given my family and I. These are photos we are going to treasure forever." Elisah & Heremaia, Liddington Gardens Wedding {Kerikeri, Northland, New Zealand}

I feel strongly about connecting with my clients. This personal connection allows me to tell your real story. I would love to make your experience unique, enjoyable and unforgettable. 

Please contact me with any questions that you might have!
