About (Once like a spark) photography

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 packages make it possible to have the photos you’ve dreamed of at an affordable price. 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!

For over 10 years, we've been highly rated, recommended, and reviewed by our couples. We've received the honor of WeddingWire's Couples' Choice Award every single year since 2011!

Services Offered
We offer multiple full-day wedding photography AND videography packages to choose between and they're all customizable! We also have combination photography + videography packages to help you save if you want both photo and video on your wedding day.

Our full-day wedding photography packages start at $2450. At a minimum, ALL packages include the following:

  • Minimum of 8 hours of photography
  • Minimum of 500 fully edited, hi-resolution images (with no logos or watermarks!)
  • Full personal copyright, which means there are no restrictions for personal use of your photos
  • Online gallery access for 10 years (you, your friends & your family can view/order/share images directly from your gallery)
  • Additional customizable options that include engagement or bridal sessions, additional hours, videography, albums, prints, and other products.

  • Minimum of 8 hours of videography coverage

    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!

    So Much More Than a Photography Team

    I don't have a lot of wedding advice, but hire OLAS is at the top of the list! They are so much more than a photography team. Our planner/Account Manager (Alicia) helped me pick our engagement picture location. I texted our photographer (Jen) for advice on what to wear. The day-of schedule was a work of art and so so much more.
    We picked our photographer based on recommendations from the planning team and the fact that she's a self-proclaimed "goofball." We're awkward people, but Jen made awkwardness come across as honest, genuine, joyful pictures. I love that we never look fake or posed or weirdly perfect. We look like us and that's exactly what we wanted.
    The whole experience was enjoyable! OLAS was a calming/stabilizing addition to a hectic process.
    Seriously, email them now! If you're feeling stressed, the intro call is what you need :)

    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.
