We understand our couples want the best of the best photography experience for their once in a lifetime milestone. That’s why we offer specialized booking incentives specifically for weddings at The Olana.

your love deserves to make a statement

This 40 acre estate is filled with a variety of gorgeous settings for your day. Inspired by French baroque architecture, the mansion was built as an homage to Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte in Paris. Weddings at The Olana are the perfect place for Brides to enjoy a few mimosa’s while priming with her closest friends. Meanwhile, Grooms and their guys will feel right at home with their own bowling alley and basketball court.

As you walk the grounds, we’ll be able to capture photos that will grace your home for decades to come. You’ll dance the night away inside the ballroom with twinkly lights and extravagantly elegant chandeliers. Your guests will feel right at home and the entrance will surely make a statement.

And whether you’re planning to walk down the aisle surrounded by family and friends or you’re planning something more intimate, we believe that your love deserves to be captured. Your story is a joyful one and we would be honored to tell it.

We know postponing a wedding is not an easy decision. If you find yourself in this situation, we ask that you let us know ASAP so that we can work together to find you a new wedding date. All rescheduled dates for Fall 2021 or 2022 must choose a Friday or a Sunday date in order to avoid paying an additional retainer. If you choose to reschedule your wedding for a new Saturday, we will need to charge an additional retainer fee.

Should we be unavailable on a new date, we will do our best to help connect you with a photographer who is available. The retainer you paid to reserve our time will not be refundable but can be put towards a future portrait session.

If you would like us to take a COVID test prior to your wedding, we are happy to do so. Send us an email to learn more about COVID testing and the cost involved with a test.

We are fortunate to be a part of an incredible community of local photographers. Should we find out that we are sick before your wedding, we will reach out to our community and do our best to find a replacement photographer with a similar style to ours.

Unfortunately due to our shooting schedule, it is not possible for us to fully quarantine for two weeks prior to your wedding day. However we will do our very best to limit our exposure to others and take all necessary precautions on your day.

We know that choosing to canceling a wedding is not an easy decision. If you find yourself in this situation, we ask that you let us know ASAP. The retainer you paid to reserve our time will not be refundable but can be put towards a future portrait session.

We ask that the couples and families we work with during this time do their best to limit their contact with others prior to the wedding day. We will keep ourselves socially distanced on your wedding day and in order to limit our exposure and keep our clients & families safe, will not be at the center of the dance floor (don’t worry, we’ll don’t need to be close to capture amazing dance shots!)

All posing will be no-touch and we ask that you limit group photos to no more than ten people at a time. Should catering allow, we would also prefer a vendor meal over being a part of the buffet line.

Like just about everything in this season, your wedding day coverage will look a little bit different. We’ll wear a mask while we shoot and remain socially distant. It’s likely that we use longer lenses to maintain distance between ourselves and our subjects.

While coverage will look a bit different, our clients have not noticed a difference in the quality of the images we produce on their wedding day. If you would like to see a wedding photographed during the pandemic, just send us an email!

As long as we are in a location that does not legally require masks and we are socially distanced, a mask will not be required during photos.

We are still shooting engagement sessions. During the session, we’ll maintain a safe distance and do our best to choose an outdoor location that does not legally require masks.

At this point, our couples have not noticed a difference in the quality of their engagement session images.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

“”Oh my I’m crying. I hope you know you’re the best ever. ALL of my bridesmaids and so many others couldnt tell me enough about how “badass” you were. We freaking love you and you made our day so perfect.”

– Kourtney & Colby
