LOVE Oliver. He did our engagement shoot and our wedding. He's perfect, professional, and also fun. He was perfect for my crazy wedding party: was able to wrangle them into pictures while still having a good time with us. He's responsive, helpful, flexible, and has great ideas. Everyone loved him.

Oliver, we absolutely LOVE our pictures! You captured the day better than I could have ever imagined. You were fantastic to work with, you were so efficient, which I can't tell you how much I appreciated for our wedding day - we were able to get every picture and pose we could possible want and get to our reception in a timely manner. No one could have handled our crazy group as well as you did. I am so grateful we hired such a professional and talented photographer. Thank you for allowing us to relive our wedding through our amazing pictures! I would highly, highly recommend Oliver.

Oliver was our photographer for our June 25th wedding at Boyne Mountain and we could not be happier! Our photos are amazing and he had them to us in about a week! Somehow, we look great in all 1,200+ photos! He not only captures us but the beautiful scenery in each and every photo. He is so organized and on top of everything; for example, we were extremely pleased when we emailed him over 6 months out from the wedding and he responded the same day with a complete day of itinerary with a list of "must do" photos (one less thing for us to plan and worry about!!). And he devoted his entire day to us. He showed up before noon to scout photo location and was snapping photos of the girls getting reading by noon and was still there taking photos late into the night on the dance floor. He is perfectly assertive as well; he is able to direct everyone in an efficient but very nice manor. We've been to other family weddings where extended family photos after the ceremony take forever... to a point we almost didn't want to do them at our wedding... but we did and we were done in under 10 minutes due to Oliver's organization and guidance. It was AMAZING. Everything about Oliver and his photos are wonderful.

Our wedding was June 4th, 2016. Our venue was Hawthorne Gardens in Marshall, MI. The venue is simply stunning. We were blessed with an amazing photographer like Oliver to be able to have the eye to capture that beauty in each and every shot. Having friends that are professional photographers in a different state I showed them Oliver's work prior to booking with him and the response was common "This guy has an amazing eye.". Due to our wedding being in Michigan and both of us living in Iowa made meeting ahead of time difficult. We didn't meet Oliver until the day of our wedding as the Bride was getting ready. His personality is so calming and outgoing that we immediately knew we would get along great. I might have questioned some of the poses and shots that Oliver asked of us, but quickly realized how good he is and how bad I am and learned to trust him. There isn't a single picture out of the hundreds that he took that we don't like. We had an outdoor wedding and had rain starting to come in and needed to get our pictures done somewhat quickly. Oliver was amazing, he was focused, helped us move along, still have fun, and captured all the photos and more. We are eternally grateful we found Oliver and highly recommend him to anyone.

I'm not even sure where to start, as our entire experience with Oliver was amazing from start to finish! My husband and I wanted a photographer who we knew would produce quality work because the pictures are the only tangible reminder you have of your wedding day (well…husband aside I guess?), and we chose Oliver because we knew the pictures would be top quality and amazing. We were not disappointed AT ALL. He has this unique ability to capture the personalities of the people he's photographing and he is simultaneously professional and really able to just go with the flow - he somehow managed to keep our wedding party and our parents on time and on task *and* he did it while encouraging us to have fun in the process. And for our engagement pictures, he not only let us incorporate our dog into the photos, but also snuck in some "glamor shots" of her - imagine our surprising and delight when we looked at our photos and found those gems! He really takes the time to work with his couples and do what they want, not just what he thinks will work best.

One of the best things about Oliver is his unobtrusiveness, too! After we finishing taking formal pictures, it's like he melted into the background. I know he took amazing pictures of our reception, first dance, and the ensuing party on the dance floor, but he never got in the way or made himself an obvious part of the proceedings. In the lead-up to the wedding, he was also an invaluable resource - Oliver is very willing to give suggestions and help you block out your wedding day if you need it. It's really wonderful - he's done so many weddings that he's great at helping a bride figure out where everyone needs to be and when (especially if you're doing a first look like we did). I legitimately cannot say enough about how wonderful the experience was or how beautiful our pictures are - I keep looking at them and they bring a giant smile to my face. Everything was wonderful - HIRE THIS MAN!

Oliver did an excellent job for our May 20th wedding! We received our photos within about 3 weeks after the wedding and they are beautiful! Everyone of our family members and friends really loved the photos he took. Everyone has been raving about what a great photographer he is and how nice of a guy he was during on our special day! My wife and I are so glad that he was our photographer, we could not have been happier with our choice! Thank you again Oliver!

Oliver is just great. Whenever we spoke with him, met with him, it didn't feel like we were speaking to a "vendor" for our wedding, it was more like talking with a friend. He's such a relaxed and friendly person, but is very focused on the photography aspect. He was nothing short of amazing, which is the reason why we chose him for our wedding, after seeing the incredible job he did for my sister's wedding the year before. I have nothing but good things to say about Oliver and his photography.

I can't think of enough good things to say about Oliver. Not only is his work impeccable, but he was so pleasant and easy going to work with. The morning of our wedding day, he showed up on time and right away began taking pictures of all the girls getting ready. He kept things fun and casual. In between taking pictures he'd strike up conversations with my Grandma, Mom, Aunt, Bridesmaids, etc. He truly enjoyed being there and captured every perfect moment!

Throughout the day, he continued to impress us with everything he did. Weddings can be stressful, particularly keeping everything on track and on time. Picture-taking can be a tedious task when you're anxious to get to the reception, but this was not the case with Oliver. The process was extremely organized and smooth. For each picture, he knew exactly who he wanted up there and exactly who would be on deck. If something didn't look right to him, he knew exactly what it was and how to correct it. He was clear and concise with his instructions and made it fun! We made it to our reception way earlier than we expected.

Oliver never missed an opportunity to capture a beautiful moment. During the sunset, he pulled my husband and I out to take some pictures, which turned out to be my absolute favorite ones! Again, it was quick but very thoughtful and thorough. We never felt like we were missing out on other things. He stayed with us well into the evening and got some awesome pics all the way till the end!

I absolutely love every picture he took! They're beautiful and make me so glad we chose Oliver to be our photographer. You can tell he spends a lot of time on them to make each and every one perfect. If you have a wedding or special event you want to remember forever, please call Oliver!!!
