Amazing eye, very easy to talk with, and super professional. He made sure to keep us on time and made everyone feel very comfortable. He showed us a few photos before we went into the reception and they looked amazing. We cannot wait to see the final prints. Overall wonderful person with a great sense for photography.

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!!!

Oliver is both fun and professional. From the engagement photos to our wedding day, he captured our happiness flawlessly. He helped make our wedding day run smoothly and was really flexible and attentive to our dreams for the perfect wedding day. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer or pictures. Thanks again Oliver!

I don't even know where to start in reviewing Oliver Howell Photography! I guess I should just start by saying that Oliver is INCREDIBLE! When we first met Oliver he was so easy to talk to and we could tell that he was genuine, trustworthy and just a really fun guy! My husband and I were both a little nervous for our engagement session because neither of us feel very comfortable in front of a camera but Oliver made it fun and easy and the photos turned out great! On our wedding day Oliver was punctual, flexible and very professional. His creativity was outstanding and he took an incredible number of photos throughout the day. He was there for everything! He was able to take pictures of us setting up the barn for the wedding, the groomsmen getting ready and the bridal party getting ready including me putting on my gown and my mother helping me with my shoes and jewelry. He took amazing photos of me having a first look with my dad and was able to create a very special moment as Ben and I had our own first look. The photos of the bridal party were wonderful and he chose so many different settings and poses that we have such a fantastic selection to print. The photos from the ceremony were fabulous and he was able to catch all of the incredible emotion and expressions of love. And at the reception he was able to catch all of the important moments and memories! Most of the time we didn't even realize he was there taking photos. Looking back at our photos makes me feel as though I am reliving our wedding day over and over again. As I look through the photos I can see the overwhelming joy and excitement that I felt on that day. And that is something that I will forever treasure! Oliver, thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for everything that you did to create the perfect wedding day. We will be forever grateful to you! We hope to see you again sometime... maybe for a beer between friends and of course for all of our future photography needs!

Hiring a photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make because he or she is responsible for telling your story. I am eternally grateful and proud that Noah and I had the opportunity to secure Oliver Howell Photography for our wedding. Oliver has a very sharp and artistic sensibility that propels him to capture each moment with clarity, grace and meaning. To my delight, Oliver understood how to shoot in challenging spaces. He captured the vibrant architecture of our small gothic chapel extremely well. Oliver produced the photographs my family and I hoped for and they were truly beautiful. We highly recommend Oliver Howell Photography!

There are not enough positive things I can say about our experience with Oliver. We had a destination wedding on Mackinac Island and he captured the essence of the rehearsal dinner and our wedding day perfectly! Our pictures are gorgeous! Not only does Oliver take fantastic photos; he is very personable-he is so great to work with! Oliver listens to what you're visions are for the pictures and he more than delivers. We were so incredibly happy to work with him and if ever we have another big event; he will be our go-to photographer!

Oliver was exactly what we were looking for in a photographer! I had seen his pictures from my sisters wedding and was blown away and had to have him for my wedding a few years later!
We were married in norther Michigan and Oliver was completely accommodating for our location and lack of knowledge of it! He took his time to know where the best lighting and pictures would be captured and we couldnt be happier with how they turned out!
We have extremely large families and we were able to capture some beautiful pictures even with such a large group! He really knows what shots will work best and left me with such a calmness throughout the whole process.
We feel extremely blessed to have the memories of our special day caputred with such beauty for us to look back on throughout our lives, and couldn't have asked for a better person to share our day with us than Oliver. He is truely an amazing photographer, and we are so happy to call him our friend.
