About (once like a spark) photography

Classically beautiful, with a little bit of charm and a lot of whimsy.

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!


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.

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!

My fiance & I had such a wonderful experience with OLAS! Everyone that we spoke with at OLAS was very helpful, informative, friendly and communication was great! Our photographer was Graham and he was incredible, he went above and beyond to get great shots (literally walked on cliffs and through thorn bushes at our engagement photo shoot) and always had such an upbeat and great attitude about it all! Graham was scheduled to arrive at our venue to start taking photo's around 1pm on our wedding day and he was there at 11am to get the lay of the land and scope out great photo spots- that meant the world to us and says a lot about the pride and dedication he takes in his work! He made myself, my fiance, our families and guests feel so at ease when he was capturing photos throughout the day and was very attentive to what the weather was doing outside and stealing us quickly for some great shots when the fog was hitting a certain way and when it started to rain. I was drawn to Graham's portfolio originally because of his use of natural light and the weather and was so happy he took that approach at our wedding as well. My fiance and I are so excited to see how the photos come out (especially after a few photos Graham showed us on his camera) that we actually we emailed the next morning asking if we could add on the "rush editing" option to our package to receive them sooner and of course just like every other time the OLAS team (Alicia in particular) responded promptly and let us know that would not be a problem. The communication and the way that OLAS relays important info and tips engaged couples need to know really is outstanding and my fiance and I could not be happier with OLAS and/or Graham!
