    Wonderful wedding photographer!

    We booked Olive Studio after a recommendation from a friend and April was a pleasure from the first moment we met her (and her adorable dog too). :) April was very thorough in planning our wedding shots, making sure she knew who and what was important for us to have captured in photos on our big day. This allowed for her to act independently and be extremely thorough the day-of without having to ask us any questions. She was also great at working within our budget and giving us many options.

    On our wedding, we were both a little awkward and nervous about having our photos done - we鈥檙e not used to so much attention - but April was great at getting us warmed up, acting natural and by the end we were having fun with the poses.

    She鈥檚 got a great eye for the perfect shot, seeing it in nature, old buildings and even (much to the horror of my best friend hosting us) a backyard deck that hadnt been used in a year. :) She remained focused, professional and absolutely lovely to deal with.

    Her work speaks for itself as well - check out her website and social media for her stunning portfolio. We couldn鈥檛 recommend her more - you won鈥檛 regret it!!!

    Oh wow! What a sweet review :) Thank you so much Natalie and Eric! You guys were so relaxed and it helps that you are so easy on the yes too!!! It was really my pleasure!!

    I had a great experience with Olive Studios. April, the owner/photographer made us feel immediately comfortable. She gives you ALL of the shots she takes, so you have hundreds to choose from. She captured moments that I thought I missed. I really treasured her attention to detail, capturing not only my husband and I, but our guests as well. Great experience!

    Olive Studio's reply:

    Thank you Sarah. You and Paul had such a lovely laid back wedding at one of my favourite venues! There were so many emotional and sweet moments between you both and your family and friends. You can tell that you have a very loving network of people surrounding you! All the best!

    Amazing experience with April!

    I could not be happier in choosing April at Olive Studio to photograph my bridal shower last September. From the moment I connected with her, she was professional, down to earth, attentive to my vision and respectful of the budget I had to work with.

    On the day of, April executed flawlessly. She really went above and beyond in capturing all the details/raw moments of the whole day. So many of my guests also shared how thoughtful and polite she was 鈥斅爅umping in at every moment to take photos of different groups. What's even more amazing is at the time she was 8 months pregnant!

    Following the event, I have received so many compliments on the quality/style of the photos and the moments that were captured. Thank you April for everything, you truly made this day I will never forget.

    Highly recommended

    April was so pleasant to work with! She really takes the time to get all of the details right so that you wouldn't have to worry about it on your big day. Needless to say, her pictures turn out very beautiful! She especially wonderfully captures our guests enjoying themselves and leaves us with evidence of such lasting memory! April's also gone above and beyond with helping us with some prop rentals from Olive Studio. Overall an amazing photographer, highly recommended! Thanks April!

    April was incredible for both our wedding and engagement shoot!! She made us feel very comfortable and came up with so many creative and unique shot ideas. April made great use of extra lights in areas where the lighting wasn鈥檛 ideal to generate vibrant photos. She was great at enduring our large wedding party stayed on target! She turned around our photos incredibly fast with excellent retouching. She captured so many natural candid photos of our guests. I will definitely use April again for future shoots and refer her to friends. Fabulous job April!

    Olive Studio's reply:

    Thank you so much Allison for your kind words :) We had a great time photographing you and your friends and family. It sure makes my job easier when everyone is into photography!! Congrats on your new marriage! Your love is truly palpable and I hope you can see that in the images.

    April is amazing at what she does. During our engagement shoot, she made us feel so comfortable and gave great direction. She got our photos back to us quickly and there are so many we love! For our wedding, she and her second shooter were absolutely incredible! They were on time, took such attention to detail, managed/coordinated the family photos portion of the day smoothly, and kept to our schedule. More importantly, they were a subtle and calming part of our day! All of our guests were blown away by how discreet they were and how easily they interacted with our guests. We can't wait to see the moment they captured and recommend their services to everyone we know!

    Olive Studio's reply:

    Thank you so much for this review Caroline! I am pleased to hear that you noticed all of this and especially happy that we were discreet!!! That is a shoot success in my books! We had a great time capturing you and your family and we wish you all the best in your new chapter together!!!

    I love April because of her professional skills, her photo style, her kind attitude and her charming personality. April is very easy to work with. I was a bit nervous on my wedding day because of my tide schedule. I shared my timeline and shoot list with April before the wedding and she claimed me down and ensured me that we should have no problem to get the shoot we want on our wedding day. And everything turned out perfectly. My partner and I, our parents as well as my guests love the photo so much. I have already had 2 friends would like to book with her for their upcoming weddings this year. Olive studio will definitely not disappoint you !

    Olive Studio's reply:

    This is such a wonderful review Fay! Thank you! I had a wonderful time photographing you both - you certainly were both very easy to photograph!!! I hope to see you again these coming years for your friends weddings!!!! :)

    So happy with our photos!

    We were so happy to work with April and Jasper from Olive Studios for our wedding, and would highly recommend them!

    They taught me that beauty can be found in unexpected places all around you. Our day was scheduled such that our couples and family photos would be taken over cocktail hour outside our warehouse-y venue, rather than in a park or other more "traditional" spot. The shots were beautiful! They played with light innovatively and used our surroundings to our advantage.

    April was with me and the gals when we were getting ready and her calm, friendly demeanor really calmed me down. Jasper did a great job with the guys too. They both went above and beyond my expectations to capture all of the beautiful moments of our day.

    We are also very happy with the engagement shoot we had with April and the lovely albums she designed for us and our parents. We'll definitely keep Olive Studios in mind for our future photography needs!

    Olive Studio's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind review Carolyn! We are so happy you loved the shots of your stunning warehouse wedding!!! I can't wait to capture you again in the future!!! All the best to you and Steve.
    April
