About (once like a spark) photography

We're a dynamic team of photographers based all over the continental U.S. and our approach has always been: do what you love and serve where you shine.

Almost 10 years ago, we asked ourselves: What do our couples, and what does the industry, really need?

We knew the industry didn't need more amazing photographers… it needed more photographers who were able to do what they love and forget the rest. Our couples didn't want more photographers to choose from… they wanted a new way to work with their photographer and a lot more guidance through the process.

We realized that we were better photographers when our sole focus was on doing what we do best: capturing the moment. And our couples were more and more thrilled as we started to bring on a support team that handled the rest - from booking & planning to editing & album design.

The difference, simply, is this: We only do the things we love (and that we're really good at) to make sure that our couples get the photos they've always dreamed of and an experience they didn't know was possible.

Our support team is made up of some of the best experts in the industry! They guide all of our couples throughout the entire process, allowing us to focus all of our energy on delivering an amazing product.

We're proud of the way we work together because it works in a way that no other wedding photography company has really worked before. We're present with you throughout your entire planning process and we're always here to help with ideas, to answer questions, and to make sure you have the celebration of a lifetime… with the gorgeous photos to prove it!

OUR PHOTOS:

Most of today's photographers are polarized - shooting either traditional portraits or capturing candid moments. We pride ourselves on being amazing at both. Our team can take both the classic and candid shots in the same session.

We know that whether it's five years or 50 from now, you'll want photos that are classically beautiful, a little whimsical, and that take you right back to the charm and romance of your day.

OUR PRICE AND PRODUCTS:

We get it. Wedding photography can be expensive. That's why all of our packages make it possible to have the photos you've dreamed of at an affordable price.

Our full-day wedding photography packages start at just $2450, with endless options to make sure you get everything you need (and nothing that you don't)... including videography!

Once you get your gallery, we know you'll want to show… well, everyone! We have incredible options for showing off your photos, from stunning organic albums to gorgeous gallery wraps.

    We cannot say enough about our experience with OLAS so far. From the very moment I began my conversations with Darcy, I knew we was making the right choice. Each person I have interacted with since has been nothing but enthusiastic, upbeat, positive, and professional. Everyone truly seems to have their client's best interests in mind and will go out of their way to make the couple happy.
    We live in NY and are getting married in NH. So, we chose OLAS because it was important to us to get to meet our photographer in advance of our big day. The online photographer bios were so helpful in allowing us to choose someone we thought we would click with, and we are SO happy that we chose Lauryn!!
    On the day of our shoot, scattered thunderstorms were forecast for our original agreed upon time. She texted to find out if we wanted to keep our appointment, move up the time, or reschedule. We all agreed to meet up about 2 hours earlier than originally planned. Further, to shoot our engagement session, she drove about 1.5 hours (through the rain no less!) to the location of our choosing to shoot with the Hudson River in the background. She immediately made us feel at ease, and got so many amazing shots. Each set of photos had a unique look, so much so that our friends and family barely believe they were almost all taken in the same park.
    As the cherry on top, the team working behind the scenes has also continued to wow us. Alicia has been so helpful, and even sent me a draft timeline (although our wedding is not until Feb. 2019) to assist with my scheduling hair/makeup appointments! Just three weeks later, Olive and Whitney reached out to share our blog post, and then the gallery of all of our images.
    From start to finish, we have been amazed by the over-and-above customer service that each OLAS employee has shown us. The process has been seamless. It has been a true pleasure and we cannot wait to work with Lauryn on our wedding day!

    Best photos ever.

    We used this company based out of the Boston area and we cannot recommend them enough! They are truly incredible and so professional and easy to work with. We had David for our engagement session and wedding and we CANNOT recommend him enough. We got so many compliments on our engagement and wedding photos and that is because he is incredibly at what he does! He does the perfect angles and makes even the most not photogenic people look great. OLAS is great and David is even better!

    You two are just pure happiness!! Nothing makes us happier than hearing that you love your photos as much as we do - you two make it easy. ;) Congratulations, again, and all our best wishes as we head into a new year!

    We absolutely LOVE the OLAS team! All of their photographers are incredibly talented and extremely easy to work with. We love the way they care for each of their couples. Also, they are very respectful of each and every vendor involved in a wedding. They are very prompt to return photos to clients (and to vendors!) as well.
