About

Hi, my name is Oliver Viray Dumlao and and photography is my passion. I believe that the most important moments in our lives should always be shared with the ones we love.

My photography is just a simple way of reminding us of those special moments that seem to pass us by in a blink of an eye. Born and raised in the Bay Area, I’ve been blessed with a beautiful backdrop, which has helped in the growth of my creative direction. I consider myself a hopeless romantic and I strive everyday to live my life by the simplest of rules: LIVE, LOVE & INSPIRE. I’m reminded, by the couples I meet and the stories they tell, that love is a unique virtue. It is always my goal to make every photo session personalized and most importantly Fun! Verstyle is a nickname given to me by my friends during my years involved with dance and music. But what truly defines my life is the love and support from my beautiful wife. She is my number one fan, my toughest critic and my first passion. Yeah, she’s kinda awesome! The best part of what I do is getting to meet new friends and learning what drives them. So tell me, what’s your passion for life? What’s your story?

    It's no secret to our family and close friends that my husband is not comfortable getting his picture taken. He was nervous and slightly apprehensive about our engagement shoot, because a photo shoot lasting more than 20 minutes sounded like torture to him. Much to our surprise, our engagement shoot with Oliver of Verstyle Photography was...get this...super fun! This is a testament to Oliver's personality and character. He's not the typical photographer. Yes, he directs you (because he know what looks good); and yes, he is artistic. But his best qualities by far are his warmth and sense of humor. He made us laugh throughout the shoot, and he is just so easy going. He is genuinely a nice guy! At first, I didn't think these qualities were that important in a photographer. However, I quickly realized throughout the wedding planning process that working with someone who had your best interest in mind, while at the same time cared about the quality of his work, made all the difference in the world! Oliver not only produces exceptional photographs, he listens, gets along really well with others, and he goes out of his way to make sure the couple is comfortable.

    Oliver's work speaks for itself. We hate the super "posey" photos that most wedding photographers take, and we knew this isn't what we wanted for our wedding. We looked at a bunch of different photographers, and Oliver's style fit our personality the most. His photographs looks and feels "real". He knows how to show off the couple's personality without it feeling contrived. He relies on natural light, which gives the photographs a soft, romantic look. We already had very high expectations, but Oliver far exceeded it.

    We highly recommend Verstyle Photography.

    We absolutely LOVED working with Oliver from Verstyle Photography. I had been reaching out to numerous photographers for a while, and then I came across Oliver. His website was stunning, and I could tell immediately I wanted him as our photographer for our wedding. I reached out to him about pricing, and we were able to work out something that was still within our budget. Oliver has impeccable customer service and was always very quick at responding.For our engagement pictures, we went to San Francisco. Oliver was familiar with so many amazing spots and we were able to take pictures all over the city so we had tons of different back drops. The pictures turned out great! You can tell he is really passionate about photography and was willing to spend more time to get perfect shots. We never felt pressured that our time was coming to an end and he was in a rush to leave. During the engagement pictures, my husband and I were taught how to be comfortable in front of the camera. After a while, we got the hang of it! This is something that was great to have experience with before our wedding day so we knew what to expect. I highly recommend engagement pictures just so you can have a feel of how you and your photographer work together. On our wedding day, Oliver and his wife Cindy spent the first half of the day with us girls while we were getting ready. There was another photographer that was with the guys at the venue. I can't even believe how many pictures were taken that day.. thousands! When I go back and look at the pictures, it's as if I am reliving that day all over again. Not one single moment was missed, and that is so important. Oliver is so organized and makes sure to go over with you everything that you want from your wedding pictures. And he really delivers! I thank Oliver for taking so many amazing pictures that we can look back on forever.

    “From beginning to end Oliver and Cindy were wonderful to work with. They have a lot of expertise, knowledge, and experience but were still very open to what we wanted, providing their professional opinion to help us in our decision making. We chose them to be our photographers mainly because we were drawn to their style, and we are so happy we did. Their enthusiasm for our wedding and our vision was always appreciated and we had a lot of fun working with them with our engagement photo session and our actual day. Many of our guests commented on how great they were, while also noticing how they were always around to catch the important moments.Thank you so much Verstyle Photography, Will miss you , thank you for making our day so special " Corina & Michael
