Let's be real, there are SO MANY photographers these days. So why should you book with me?
Your wedding day is just as important to me as it is to you. I promise! Why?
Because I believe that every little accomplishment, every win, every small celebration deserves documentation, so something as important as YOUR wedding? You better believe I will show up and give you 210% of what I've got...and then some. Your wedding day is one of the MOST important days of your life; and because of that, I want you to have OUTSTANDING images to show for it. Because you deserve it. Because love is hard, and you have fought for this love of yours, and now you get to celebrate it! I think that deserves a photo or two, don't you?
What you should know is that I don't take this responsibility lightly. I want you to know- you can trust me because I have your absolute BEST interests at heart. Nothing makes me happier than making you happy and making your day the easiest, least stressful, and BEST day it can be. I'm a firm believer that weddings should NOT be stressful events. Think of your wedding as a really fun party that you just happen to be getting married at! What this means is that when you book with me you can be assured that you are in capable hands.

I will send you resources upon resources to help you along the way. While this might be your first wedding, it isn't mine 😉, and I am ready to answer your questions and give you the resources you need to create a truly memorable day.
I can't wait to celebrate your BEST DAY EVER with you.
I love passport stamps and road trips. If your wedding or shoot isn't near me- no worries! Let's chat travel plans and dream locations.
I wish I knew where to start- there are just so many things about working with Olivia! Not only is her work amazing, she is an extremely sweet soul and so easy to work with. Olivia made every opportunity to work with her so natural and removed the stress out of it all. Her experience as a model really comes into play with aiding you to look natural in your photos- there aren’t any strange or fake poses, she just lets you be you and helps you when you need it. Her talent is so obvious in her images- they are so clear, the lighting is amazing and she just knows how to find the right shot. Olivia did such an AMAZING job on our wedding- she read my mind throughout the day and took some neat shots that are so outside the box that I would have never thought to do. She kept us on track with timing and made sure we checked everything off that we needed to do. Our entire wedding party absolutely loved having her around- it wasn’t the usual experience of having a photographer at a wedding where they are just “there”... we had SO much fun together and the experience was that much more fun and awesome because of her. It's not every wedding that the bride and the photographer are dancing all night but I am so happy that it was for ours! Cannot say enough good things about Olivia- so professional, so talented, so awesome. We will continue to stay friends and use her for any photography needs in our future!
Love you!!!! Seriously. YOU ARE THE BOMB.

Olivia Reed Photo was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Olivia did our engagement shots and I've always loved her work. The photos she took are amazing and I'm so so so happy with how they turned out. Olivia is easy to work with, super responsive, and most importantly made us feel so comfortable throughout the whole process. Getting photographed can feel awkward and but she actually made it fun and knew how to make us look our best. Olivia truly fulfilled all of our request even the most over the top ones that involve a photo-shopped dinosaur!! I highly recommend Olivia Reed Photo without any hesitation.

First off thank you so much we are truly amazed by our wedding photos. The photos are absolutely beautiful, you managed to capture our special day moment by moment. Every time we look at them we are reminded of the emotion, the laughs, and of course all the fun we had that day. You were professional and calming, but able to manage all of us to capture so many beautiful moments between family and friends. We still stay in contact to this day and we highly recommend Olivia Reed Photo!

Since using Olivia as our wedding photographer both my husband and I have been recommending her to EVERYONE! Olivia is incredibly talented, professional, responsive (to our calls, emails, and even to requests for family pictures to be delivered ahead of schedule to use for holiday cards!), and just wonderful to deal with. When we first met Olivia at our engagement shoot she was great about suggesting photos (poses, locations, etc.), while also taking into account the type of photos we were looking for. We could not be more pleased with the incredible photos we received, and have already started thinking up excuses to hire her again!

My fiancé and I met Olivia by chance over a year ago. She happened to be visiting her family on the west coast and posted on her Facebook that she was looking for couples to shoot in the area while she was here. A mutual friend of ours told me about the post and asked if I would shoot with her that weekend. I’d never done any sort of photo shoot before but I agreed because why not?
Over the course of several hours on that photo shoot Olivia started to feel like family. Not only is she fiercely talented, she is also incredibly kind, patient and makes you feel like an absolute rock star. I still have no idea how she made my fiancé and I look so good. All we did was have fun all day and what came out of it were some of the sweetest pictures I will cherish for the rest of my life.
Fast forward to this year — Olivia revisits the west coast and she shoots our maternity pictures! They are enough to make me cry every time I look at them.
Fast forward again and Olivia will be shooting our wedding in April! It was a no-brainer that she was the only one I would allow to shoot such a milestone for us given our history with her. We couldn’t be more excited.
Bottom line... to know Olivia Reed is to love Olivia Reed. She has captured a spectrum of special moments in our lives and I am eternally grateful. I have learned that “taking pictures” is one thing but capturing the love, joy and intimacy that two people share is an absolute art that can take your breath away. Thank you a million times Olivia!

We LOVE the additions! Thank you so much for doing that. My family gave such positive feedback about all the photos the first time I sent them around and we are so pleased with how they came out! Ross and I just looked through the additions and we were hysterically cracking up with some and just ooo-ing at others - thank you, thank you, thank you.
Thank you for your time and dedication to capturing so many special moments, most importantly, capturing “us” - being able to relive the day through the photos and the emotions and candid moments you found is just magical. We are so thankful for you and Erin [second shooter].

"I had a lifestyle shoot with Olivia yesterday afternoon and ALREADY received a preview of my photos! They are AMAZING!! Exactly what I had in mind! Olivia made the shoot fun, easy, and effortless. This was not my first time working with Olivia as she has been the photographer for multiple weddings I have been a part of which she too made super fun to shoot and delivered unbelievable photos! I already knew the amazing quality I was signing up for but I'm still impressed every time!! Definitely recommend for all your photo needs!"
Olivia is a true gem, I booked Olivia for her entrepreneur package & was blown away. It can be incredibly stressful to get in front of a camera, but Olivia made the whole process so much easier. She got to know me first & then suggested locations based on my business’s needs. The final gallery was just phenomenal, the images she provided will last my business a long time. If you want a session that authentically captures your spirit while simultaneously feeling like you are just hanging out with an old friend, Olivia is your lady. Book her, you won’t regret it!
My husband and I got married at the Annapolis courthouse and hired Olivia to capture our small, intimate ceremony. Before our big day, Olivia was very responsive and so easy to communicate with. I often have a fear of looking awkward in photos, especially those staged photos, but Olivia completely put us at ease. Because we had such a small ceremony, we were only with Olivia for for short period of time, but she was able to capture so many amazing photos! From the ceremony, family portraits, pictures with our dog, to the photos of just my husband and I, I was completely blown away by Olivia's amazing photographs. Olivia was also able to capture really great candids and that really capture the happiness of the day. She even managed to get good shots of our very uncooperative and anxious dog : ) Our ceremony was in late November, and Olivia knew all of the best spots in town that gave us a beautiful backdrop for our photos. Olivia was also super quick with her turnaround time, so we didn't have to wait long at all to see her amazing work! I highly recommend Olivia Reed Photo!

Working with Olivia was such a pleasure. She’s such a kind and professional photographer. She respected everything my husband and I wanted out of our pictures and got amazing couples shots as well as group shots of our big family. Plus, we love all the candids she took during the ceremony and reception. Her photos captured our wedding day perfectly and I can’t recommend Olivia enough!

I am so glad we chose Olivia Reed to photograph our wedding. After my husband and I got engaged, and we started to talk about what was important to each of us as we imagined our wedding day, I knew good photography was the one component of the wedding process I felt strongly about. I wanted to be able to have photos to look back on and help remember our day, surrounded with our closest friends and family. However, my husband is not much for picture taking . Actually, he really despises having his photo taken (but selfies are a different story!). So I knew that the person taking our wedding photos would have to be very special in order to help make him comfortable in front of the camera. Right from the first introductory phone call, I knew Olivia would be that person for us, her personality is so easygoing and she a wonderful person. I knew she would be able to help us make the photo process painless and we would get along really well. And it was! The entire process was so seamless and easy, she was so flexible, transparent, and accommodating. It was so fun having her take our wedding photos, we really enjoyed our time we spent together and will definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. The photos she took are beautiful and captured our day beautifully. I will forever treasure them! Thank you so much Olivia!

I am so happy that we were able to have Olivia Reed Photo photograph our wedding. She was a delight and so sweet. When it came time for the Mr. and Mrs. portraits, Olivia made it fun. It almost felt like a special date between us. A moment we could share and capture after saying "I do". The photographs were elegant and beautiful, and we highly recommend Olivia Reed Photo.

"Olivia is so amazing! her and her team did my elopement pictures and her pics are so amazing we are blown away by them. I think I have gone through them 100 times in the 5 hours we've had them. Highly recommended for any type of wedding, from a courthouse to a big full blown wedding she has a great team and they were on top of every single detail. If you are overwhelmed looking for vendors, in the photography area look no further OLIVIA IS YOUR GIRL. she has a great artistic eye, extremely professional and goes above and beyond for her clients. every single picture is perfect! We all loved her! even my guests were commenting on how great she was!!!"
