My Style | My Philosophy
Auckland-Hamilton-Tauranga Lifestyle Wedding Photographer
Welcome to my website and thank you for visiting!
I'm Olga Levien, photography artist and I specialize in lifestyle wedding | elopement and couples | engagement photography, serving mainly Auckland | Hamilton, Waikato and Bay of Plenty areas, New Zealand. I also love to travel to destination sessions, nationwide and around the world.
My style is natural and artistic, I'm known for custom lifestyle photography with a mix of fine art and documentary. I love my beautiful and elegant brides and grooms, treasuring their timeless photographs. I love to find beauty in details and harmony in moments and spend time with my amazing couples. My goal is to deliver unique images that are timeless, romantic and real. I drive by couples personalities and atmosphere of the day and wedding venue, so you can find in my portfolio airy | contemporary images along with dramatic light photographs, with some vintage and timeless elements. I love this mix as it truly reflects emotions and a story of your wedding day.
I love to capture candid moments through the day: if you laugh I will capture that if you cry I will capture that too. Weddings can be busy and hectic but as an Artist, I will do my best to capture for you all the beautiful and emotional moments.
I love raw emotions and connection between people. Even posed photos I prefer to capture natural and happy way. You will get your editorial, romantic, creative and natural shots, I will capture your relationship and personalities the most enjoyable way with relaxed intimate moments of just the two of you. Believe me, you will need it during this long happy day!
I'm a very friendly, easy going and a great peoples person, so I make sure everyone is comfortable in front of the camera (even shy people and especially kids). I expect the unexpected and stay relaxed in any situation (who not, with 2 little ones in the house? :) and I adapt easily! I'm highly organized and creative, make sure you will get all important shots you want for your wedding and even more. I never limit a number of images from your engagement session or your wedding day and hand-edit each image in your gallery artistically with my unique style.
My clients are looking for something exceptional and outstanding. When they see their photos, the feedback I hear most is that images are beyond anything they could have imagined and they keep looking at them again and again.
If you do love the photographs what you see in my portfolio and blog please contact me for a pre-wedding consultation. Based on our brief meeting, I will find out your needs and make sure we are on the same page. If I believe my photography style isn't for your needs then I will tell you in advance. I would like to work with you, but most important to me is make sure you get the photos you love! Have a look at my portfolio and clients testimonials for more insight.
