We tell people often that we're different from other wedding photographers, and, well, we mean it. Our photos are different - classically beautiful with a little touch of whimsy and a lot of charm, and we also run our business totally differently. And we believe it's precisely what makes us the perfect fit for you. The best way to get to know us is through our website, so we'll hope you'll stop on by and contact us! Getting the AMAZING wedding photos that you'll treasure for the rest of your life is about SO much more than just the photography the day of the wedding. It's about knowing the exact way to schedule your photography on your wedding day, it's about providing you all of the amazing tips and tricks we know to make sure you feel totally comfortable, it's about providing you fun, easy ways to style your engagement and wedding shoots, it's about beautiful editing that makes you look the absolute best you can - the list goes on and on. Most wedding photographers are pulled in so many different ways, and it's hard to be GREAT at all of these very important things. That's where we're different. So how do we work? We're a team, a super-fun sisterhood, but we're in our sweet spot when we each focus on one part of the wedding photography process - and it's the part we're each amazing at, if we do say so ourselves. The result is that you get to work with a close team of uber-talented experts to get the wedding photos you've always dreamed of, and have a lot of fun along the way, all for the same price as as working with one person, who might be trying to wear a lot of different hates. At (once like a spark) photography, we want nothing more than for you to absolutely love your wedding photos, and every part of the process related to those photos. Come check us out - we think we'll like what you see, and be sure to contact us so we can start chatting. Can't wait to hear from you! Read less

(once like a spark) photography might have been the easiest part in the planning process. I reached out to over 10 photographers and (once like a spark) was not only the most responsive but also the most affordable. We got married in Telluride, Colorado which is pretty remote. Their Colorado phtographer was already booked that weekend so I got to choose from their available photographers to fly out and come to Telluride AT NO EXTRA COST. Telluride is 6 hours from any major airport. I couldn't believe they were doing this. The photos are gorgeous and my husband and I are so happy with them. I've never had to wait more than a few hours to get a response from someone on the (once like a spark) team.

Once Like A Spark was easily our favorite vendor during our wedding planning. They were clear, quick to respond, thoughtful, fun, and incredibly well-prepared. Without fail, they got back to every email in a timely manner and answered questions I didn't even know I had! They really have thought of everything, like giving us a list of three phone numbers to contact on our wedding day in case we had a last minute change or emergency.

Their team approach is brilliant. Everyone is incredibly talented and professional in their area of expertise. Talia was our photographer and she was wonderful - warm, fun, and made us feel comfortable from start to finish. Alicia was fantastic in getting our shot list planned and running logistics ahead of time. They definitely think about pre-wedding timelines/stress and had everything ready to go with plenty of time before the wedding, which I really appreciated.

In short, their customer service is absolutely top notch and their photos are a perfect mix of classic and contemporary. Highly recommend!!

The quality of service and products with OLAS is unmatched. We worked with the talented Nikki for our engagement session and wedding day and even though we haven't seen our wedding pictures yet (it was only a week ago) I am 100% confident that they will be every bit as stunning as our engagement pictures. Highly, highly recommend to anyone in the market for professional pictures.

We had the most fabulous experience with Once Like a Spark Photography. I live in Los Angeles, but my husband and I got married in Nashville. We researched tons of photographers and actually reached out to about 20 for pricing and information. During our search to find the perfect photographer, we came upon Once Like a Spark Photography.

I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Once Like a Spark. They were by far the most responsive and all of their communication with us was streamlined, consumer friendly, and just really easy. With all of the other photographers we researched, we kept finding out about these obscure fees that they charge. Once Like a Spark was easy and upfront about their pricing and we never felt like they were trying to gouge money out of us. They are such an honest, respectable and kind team, and THE team you want handling one of the most precious possessions after your wedding...your photos.

I keep referring to Once Like a Spark as a "team" because they really are. It made us feel so much more comfortable that we worked with not only the photographer, but a team of dedicated professionals that help plan out your photography timeline, packages, etc. It is so important that they sat down with us and reviewed timelines, made recommendations, etc. Without our detailed timeline, our wedding would not have been as successful.

During the day, I just loved how positive our photographer was. She was so uplifting and upbeat that it really just set the tone for the day. We actually had fun taking our pictures and she was so creative with poses while also getting those classic shots.

I could go on and on about Once Like a Spark. I HIGHLY recommend them and we are so incredibly happy with our decision.

I couldn't have asked for anything more when looking for a photographer for my wedding. From the very beginning, they were exceptionally professional, quick to respond and interested in us as a couple. Wedding planning can be stressful, but these guys made this part of planning as stress free as possible. Plus, their package prices are far better than most photographers I talked to, and they're willing to tailor it to what you want. Alicia was more than attentive to my (many) questions, and it was nice to have her take care of the planning and logistics, so Graham could do the creative side of things. Graham showed up on time the day of the wedding (even a few minutes early) and was friendly, creative and professional the whole day. I really appreciated how flexible he was during the chaos of family photos. I would HIGHLY recommend oncelikeaspark to anyone looking for wedding photography, they really do stand out from the rest.

I couldn't imagine working with a different company for my wedding photos. The pictures turned out to be amazing. The lighting was beautiful on the sunset photos. The amount of pictures was perfect- not too few that we were left wanting more but not too many that we felt overwhelmed. The quality of the pictures is outstanding.

Tina and Chad were amazing. They were sweet and beyond helpful. When they got there, I saw them walking around the ceremony site and planning everything before they started work. During family photos, which were likely made harder since my family is big and loud and always distracted, Chad orchestrated everything very well and made sure everyone got where they were supposed to be very quickly. On a personal interaction level, they were great, too. They always made sure I was okay with whatever they were thinking or suggesting. They were incredibly professional without being rigid and instead were professional AND personable. We got along very quickly and very well. As a team, they also worked together very well and maintained professionalism in that respect.

I enjoyed every part of working with Chad and Tina, but I think my favorite part was connecting with them personally. They weren't robots about their work, trying to get everything done in a hurry and in a cookie-cutter fashion. They made me feel so comfortable and were very easy to trust. It sort of felt like we had been friends before that, and they were just some buddies helping out with the photography.

There was a perfect amount, honestly! It seemed like any time I had a few questions about anything, your team sent me an email answering all of them before I could even ask! All of the organization and lists and timelines and email formatting was beyond helpful for my visual needs! I am very type A and organized and task-/list-oriented, and I couldn't have asked for better communication.

We used (once like a spark) photography for both our engagement photos and our wedding photos. The staff was awesome to work with- very responsive, fun, and professional. We worked with Anna for our engagement photos and Chad + Tina for our wedding photos. All were great to work with. On our engagement session, we learned about what types of photos we like, so I would definitely recommend doing a pre-wedding shoot! Anna was super sweet and we got some awesome shots!

For our wedding, Chad + Tina did an absolutely beautiful job. Since we used Anna for our engagement shots, we had not met them yet. They came in during one of those "hectic, get-the-hair ready fast" moments, and they fit in just perfectly. All of our family really loved working with them, as they were very professional yet easy-going. The pictures turned out just beautifully, and they perfectly captured our day. Chad + Tina made us feel relaxed and therefore truly captured lots of natural shots. I was concerned about lighting and shadows since we got married at night with candles everywhere- Chad + Tina did not skip a beat and knew exactly how to take this type of photo.

Also- a big thanks to Emily, the creative director, who helped edit these pictures to make them even more stunning. We worked with Emily in order to discuss the "types" of pictures we liked and to talk through our wedding day.

Also a shout-out to Alicia, who helped with the schedule for the day. We had lots of different shots that we wanted to get, and she really helped fit all of the wedding day photography into time slots- but without being too rigid.

Finally, thanks so much to Ashley, Cali, and Leah who have built such a great company to work with. We so much appreciate it and will enjoy your product for many, many years to come!

I LOVED LOVED LOVED working with OLAS! Their team approach makes sure you have the artistic talented photographer, organized schedule and easy logistics. I interviewed many photographers that worked on their own, and I could tell OLAS's strategy would be much more reliable while still providing amazingly beautiful photographs. The process leading up the wedding included many emails and phone chats about things we wanted captured in our pictures and what the feeling/theme of our wedding was. They really took the time to get to know us and make sure to convey us in our pictures. The day of was perfect, Anna (our talented photographer) showed up an hour early and every thing just went smoothly. I even had a few guests come up to me and tell me Anna was so sweet! I cannot wait to see the final pictures!!

Working with OLAS was an absolutely perfect experience (and it really was an experience). They make sure that you have all of the planning necessary to capture your wedding day the way that you want. From the beginning, they always made it a point to contact me about anything and everything about our wedding.

Personally, I was a bride who didn't know much about wedding photography. OLAS guided me through the entire process and really captured my day flawlessly. My photographer, Kait, was absolutely wonderful and we were both instantly comfortable taking pictures with her. Overall, I would encourage anyone to use OLAS as their wedding photographer. They wouldn't disappoint.

I cannot say enough about how amazing it was to work with OLAS! Everyone we worked with was amazing and so willing to make sure we had the best possible experience.

OLAS was not like a traditional photographer, as we worked with a couple of different people who were all tasked with making sure we got amazing photos. This worked out really well, since everyone had expertise in their roles, and it meant that our incredible photographer, Graham, only had to focus on taking pictures, and not all the extra coordinating and administrative work.

Everyone I worked with was like a friend. Ashley, the owner, conducted my intro call, and she seemed truly excited about hearing my wedding plans, and honored to be a part of it. Alicia, our coordinator, was so willing to answer any questions and hash out details. Graham, our photographer, was so much fun! I know we got great pictures, because we spent our entire engagement session and wedding laughing with him!

Above all, everyone at OLAS made me feel like my wedding was an important and unique event. I would hands-down recommend them to any bride.

Paige and the whole Once Like a Spark Team--

Thank you SO much for capturing our wedding day. Over the weekend we went through the photos and shared them with friends and family. It was almost as much fun as our wedding day, to sit and relive the experience through Paige's amazing photos. The day turned out to be so much more amazing than we had ever thought it would be. That goes for the photos too!

Paige did an fantastic job of capturing the moments that we wanted, but she also captured all of the moments that we could not articulate. The relationships between family and friends, the silliness of our big crazy group, the love that was all around that day.

Thank you all so much!

I loved working with my OLAS team! My team was so attentive to my needs and answered any questions I had in a timely manner. I was initially hesitant about the company's business model because you work with a group of people instead of directly with your photographer, but after talking with the President and getting a better understanding of the model, I became comfortable with the process. The team works hard to make you know that they want your day to be very special! I appreciated that each team member knew my love story and was well aware of how I wanted my pictures to look to capture my story. The team makes you feel like family! If you work with them, you will not be disappointed.

From start to finish, this company is "hands on" working to make sure that every base is covered. Using a team approach, each member has a specific role that he/she is perfectly suited for to make sure that no stone is left unturned. The pictures that we have received thus far have been unlike any other. We are just THRILLED! The wedding day ran smoothly, and Anna Mills made the day one that we will never forget! Photography with her was an unbelievably fabulous experience. We LOVE (once like a spark) photography and plan to use them for years to come!

OLAS is incredibly professional, prompt, and detail oriented. I couldn't believe how invested they were in meeting my hopes, desires and vision for my wedding pics. The photographer Brittanee was amazing- easy to work with and a true talent for photography. The editing team is fab too. Not sure what they did to make our photos look so good, but wow, we were stunned! They are so gorgeous!
The best part of it all is that OLAS has a great price and no hidden costs!
100% impressed!

This is a unique experience, as you are not just working with the photographer, you are working with a team of professionals. First I spoke with Ashley, whom walks you through the process and explains the ideology of “Once like a Spark.” After signing a contract with them, I received emails walking me through the payment process. You continue to receive emails to help build up a profile so that the whole team understands what you are looking for in your pictures on your wedding day. I was planning my wedding from 3 thousand miles away so I was not able to meet the photographer before the wedding day. By the day of my wedding, it was the first time I was meeting the photographer, however, he already knew all of my photography needs. I felt very comfortable with him (Michael) and could tell how passionate he was about his work. I wanted someone that I could be comfortable telling what I wanted but I also wanted Michael to be honest with me. The most important thing to me was to have amazing pictures; I felt that I could totally trust Michael to capture just that. I can’t wait to see what the team comes up with for me; after all of our emails and phone conversations I feel that they know what I am looking for in my photos. I would recommend “Once like a Spark” to anyone and would love to work with the team again, if an opportunity arises.

Once like a spark was phenomenal! One of my other vendors who had worked with them before even referred to them as a "well-oiled machine." From the booking process, to the planning process, to the day of the wedding, they were extremely organized and attentive, were sincerely interested in meeting my husband and I's needs, and were SO pleasant to work with. And the photographs...well they speak for themselves. We were fortunate enough to work with Tyler, one of the Atlanta photographers, and we loved him! Besides taking AMAZING pictures, he was so fun to have around on the day of the wedding. Tyler and the second photographer captured every little detail of the day that will help us relive it for the rest of our lives. I 100% would recommend them to anyone.

OLAS will make you feel like you guys have been lifelong friends. The communication was fast and thoughtful. They were such a pleasure to work with, and so down-to-earth--which is great for those stress-free, laid back brides. Our photographer, Nikki, was so great to work with. She knew the best locations to shoot, and was able to capture photos that are nothing less than gorgeous! The photos are whimsical, dreamy, but also classic, graceful, and elegant; which was important to me, because I didn't want to look back at these photos 20 years from now and realize they were outdated. I could not be happier! Thank you so much!

If I could capture my experience with OLAS in one word it would be INCREDIBLE. We didn't use a videographer so we were really counting on our photographer (Tyler) to capture our day, and he did such an amazing job. Tyler really connected with us, especially my husband who generally hates being photographed, and all of our guests also loved him too. Most importantly, our photos are absolutely beautiful! OLAS is so much more than just a photographer though - their entire team was absolutely wonderful to work with. I didn't have a wedding planner, and they really went the extra mile to help make sure that I was thinking of all the details that I wanted to be sure and capture on our big day. I would highly recommend them to any bride!

Photography was my absolute number one priority. It was the first thing I booked, and the vendor I spent the most time researching. I wanted a photography company to exceed my expectations (which were probably too high), but these were going to be displayed, prominently! They are the first things everyone wants to see, and they had to be PERFECT at minimum! THANK GOODNESS I found OLAS!!
As I have already mentioned, photography was important to me, and did I absolutely utilize it! Tracy, (more on her in a minute) did my engagement photos, she photographed my bridal shower, our wedding AND a trash the dress session! I was ECSTATIC when I received my engagement photos! It is a true talent to capture emotion in a still picture, but not only did Tracy do that perfectly, it was evident in every. single. picture! The bridal shower pictures were also breathtaking! It was so wonderful to have the opportunity to capture photos of my family members and my closest friends in such a beautiful way! All of my expectations had been met at that time, I was going into the wedding confident that Tracy was an extraordinary talent and I had nothing to worry about. Pictures before the wedding are a great idea, I was completely comfortable with Tracy at that point, and so happy that there would be no surprises with the wedding pictures. BOY was I WRONG!!! Seeing my wedding photos was a shock, but in the best possible way!!! I was STUNNED! The pictures were so far beyond anything I could have ever hoped for!!! I literally have no words for the feeling of going through those pictures for the first time. Sifting through them with my new husband was a wonderful moment, and I will cherish that feeling forever. As for the trash the dress session, sigh (I am running out of adjectives) suffice it to say they were perfect. There are literally not enough wonderful words in the dictionary to describe how thrilled I was with OLAS!

And our photographerAnna was amazing!!! The minute she got to our wedding she was instantly my best friend! So great to work with :) We just got our pics back a few days ago and are IN LOVE! We can't stop gushing over them. Thanks son much! Very affordable packages too!

I would 100% recommend OLAS to any bride! They were an amazing value to start, but they also regularly offer great promos that make their rates even better (we got a FREE 30 minute photo session just by making a payment early!). The best part?? Even though you are getting a great deal on the price, you are still getting incredible service and AMAZING photos!!

I was able to meet my photographers before signing my contract, and after that I worked with the office team on selecting my services, timeline, key photos that I wanted, etc. On the day of, my photographers arrived on time, were really nice and blended in during the wedding, and the photos were exactly what I wanted. I'd written out a pretty extensive photo list since I hand made so much of the wedding decor myself, and they had that list printed and with them so I didn't have to repeat myself or worry about anything being missed.

When I first got my photos in, I noticed there were a few missing that I'd been expecting (I got several hundred, but like I said, I'd requested A LOT of specific photos), but after a quick email the editing department came back with over 30 more photos for me (I'd only asked for another 4 or 5). Including the photobooth photos, I walked away with OVER 800 incredible photos!!

OLAS has also been really great about working with my other vendors. I got a lot of discounts by allowing my vendors the freedom to do whatever they wanted (within my basic vision, of course), and I wouldn't have been able to do that if they didn't 1) Know the quality of OLAS's work and trust they'd get great photos and 2) Know that OLAS would share and allow them to use the photos for personal promotion. I just can't say enough how happy I am with the OLAS team and my wedding photos!!! Now on to Pinterest to plan out the 101 ways I'm going to display them all over my home!!!

I would 100% recommend OLAS to any bride! They were an amazing value to start, but they also regularly offer great promos that make their rates even better (we got a FREE 30 minute photo session just by making a payment early!). The best part?? Even though you are getting a great deal on the price, you are still getting incredible service and AMAZING photos!!

I was able to meet my photographers before signing my contract, and after that I worked with the office team on selecting my services, timeline, key photos that I wanted, etc. On the day of, my photographers arrived on time, were really nice and blended in during the wedding, and the photos were exactly what I wanted. I'd written out a pretty extensive photo list since I hand made so much of the wedding decor myself, and they had that list printed and with them so I didn't have to repeat myself or worry about anything being missed.

When I first got my photos in, I noticed there were a few missing that I'd been expecting (I got several hundred, but like I said, I'd requested A LOT of specific photos), but after a quick email the editing department came back with over 30 more photos for me (I'd only asked for another 4 or 5). Including the photobooth photos, I walked away with OVER 800 incredible photos!!

I very carefully researched wedding photographers as this was the most important aspect of my day (aside from the dress). Once Like a Spark did an incredible job from the minute I reached out to them inquiring about their company to the day of my wedding. They have several different people I worked with throughout the process to assure I had no question go unaswered. Our photographers name was Tracy (she was from San Diego). She flew in the day before and got a lay of the land (my wedding was in TN). I didn't meet her for the first time until the day of my wedding (however I had talked to her on the phone to discuss my vision). She was so professional, so great with my family and friends, she knew we were on a time schedule and adhered to that schedule and was not pushy but very appropriately kept us on that schedule. She would have bent over backwards to have done anything I asked. When I received my photos back a few weeks later I was in love and so was everyone else. They were perfectly classy with a splash of trendyiness which was exactly what I wanted to please both my parents and myself. I can't say anough good things about this company. They are so personable and will address your every need. Everytime I reached out to them I heard back from them that very same day. So pleased and would use them again and again and again.

(once like a spark) was not only lovely to work with from day one, they offered exactly what I was looking for, right in my budget. They were always understanding of my needs and ready to fill any special requests.

Throughout the planning process, I spoke with 4 different women, each one both kind and excited to help me. I can honestly say they all love their job, which I think says a lot about (once like a spark) as a company.

The day of the wedding, Anna and Kameron were wonderfully accommodating and pleasant. They seemed honored to be at my wedding, which I think is such a special emotion to exude to a bride on the day of her wedding. I am sure they do this for every bride, but the fact that they mastered such an important quality meant a lot to me, and put me at ease.

Now that I am finished with my wedding, the OLAS team continues to be wonderful. I highly recommend hiring (once like a spark) photography!

Once Like a Spark is an incredible photography company! I was so lucky that someone had recommended them to me several years ago, so when I got engaged I knew immediately they were who I wanted to use. The entire process throughout the year was so easy and actually fun. I felt like I was making friends with everyone who contacted me. They truly do follow through on their goal of making you feel like family. And that is just the process of getting you to the big day. I then cannot say enough about how much my husband and I LOVE our photos. They are different and unique and absolutely beautiful. All my friends and family have been raging about them. After you get your photos the process does not end there. You still get all of those sweet and caring people contacting you to help make your prints and albums awesome too! Love them!!!!!

Everyone on the Once Like a Spark team were amazing! We fell in love with OLAS right away from simply looking on their website. Our photographer was amazing to work with and honestly made our wedding day even more special. We LOVE our pictures and can't even pick our favorite one because there are so many to choose from. The experience you get for the money is a steal! I would recommend OLAS to anyone and everyone. (:

Hi Brides & Grooms! (once like a spark) photography is absolutely THE BEST in the business! I highly recommend this company, and do so from the bottom of my heart. We were always treated like family - fast email responses, honesty, and a team-based approach at every step. While the business grew and changed over the 18 months we were engaged (they were the second vendor we booked, so we had a long relationship with OLAS!), we always felt taken care of. The team worked with us on a package that accommodated both our engagement and wedding photos, stayed in budget, and they were a great value for the level of photography we chose. They might be a *little* pricier than some companies out there, but the service, photographer's skills, journalistic approach, and final editing process speaks for itself. Our photos are beautiful, whimsical, stunning, and emotional. Our photographers were creative and adventurous, took our suggestions, wants, and needs very seriously, and gave us the best experience we could ask for. We immediately felt comfortable - like being with friends, someone you've known your whole life! My only "concern" is for brides on a budget (if you can even call it a concern, of course) is that some of their add-ons will cost you extra - professional albums, rush-ordering, Blog Sneak Peeks, and an online download of your final images . Even if you decline these options, the responsiveness of the team does not change. It's business-as-usual no matter what add-ons you choose, and you can opt-in later! NO sales pressure, which I loved, having to base a lot on our budget. We simply chose to wait for our DVD of images to arrive instead! All the gals we worked with - Leah, Britt, Emily, Ashley - were all incredible! They love people in love and they love sharing the experience with their clients. You will be lucky to work with ANY of their photographers no matter what region you are in! We couldn't be happier, and wish you LOTS of success with future clients!

This entire team is amazing. From Leah answering my endless questions about packages and scheduling, to Brittny who did the planning call and helped me figure out how to schedule everything, to our photographer Tracy who was FANTASTIC at the wedding. I hate photos, and look awful in pictures but she helped me to relax and smile and was never in-your-face about it. She was the biggest sweetheart and super accommodating and flexible. It was a blast working with her.

In planning our wedding, finding a photographer was one of the most critically important choices for us. As someone who scoured wedding blogs and had a clear vision in my mind of the STYLE of photography I wanted (modern, candid, with an artistic POV, never contrived). BUT, I was disappointed by the selection of photographers offered locally in RI - most of their work felt staid, posed... and I struggled to find how their fees translated into the quality of the work. Luckily for me, I came across a posting on Once Wed for Once Like A Spark, and loved that they had a New England-based photographer, Graham, who could shoot in Rhode Island. Though planning from New York, I always felt connected to Graham and team. We had multiple phone calls in advance of the wedding, which ensured that I felt both chemistry, and informed. The value of their packages offered is unreal, and their occasional promotions afforded us the opportunity to add on options that we would not have been able to swing with other vendors. Best of all - we loved our wedding day experience. Graham was laid back, honest, moved quickly, experimented, had fun, and captured everything we wanted. He managed to find a way to bring out the best in my husband and I. We LOVE our photos, especially the ones of just the 2 of us, our bridal party, and candids from getting ready + the reception. In addition to Graham being amazing, the creative/office team at OLAS has been great partners - always there to answer questions, help us plan details, and give an honest POV. Now that we have our photos, I realize it was one of the best decisions we made. BOOK THEM NOW!

Once like a spark was amazing!! Even now, a few months after our wedding, getting prints done is super easy. The entire process was smooth and payment online was perfect! Planning a wedding from one coast to have on the other was hectic and sometimes crazy. But choosing OLAS for photography was done quickly and I was free to think about other things. Honestly they took care of everything, the best part being the reminders of when things needed to be done. And the pictures....i seriously looked at them everyday for a month they were so gorgeous. And still get awe struck when I see them now. I had this image in my head of what I wanted and somehow they got that and made it better! Graham was spectacular as a photographer and all around creative force.

My husband and I simply cannot say enough positive things about Once Like A Spark. In the midst of the craziness of planning a wedding, their staff has been not only persistently reliable but have gone above and beyond the norm of regular photographers and have made us feel like a part of their family. The photos we have received from our engagement session have been unbelievable and on our wedding day, there was no doubt in my mind that everything would be captured perfectly. All of our friends and family want to know just who OLAS is and how they can get a hold of them to capture their special moments. Again, we can't recommend this company enough and will undoubtedly be utilizing their services again in the not so far off future.

I am so pleased with the service I received from Once Like A Spark. After researching high and lo all the vendors in Atlanta, I settled upon OLAS mainly because of their artistic style of shooting photography and their price (hey, that's important, especially when you as a couple are paying for the photography yourself!).

As someone that never thought themselves photogenic, I was shocked when I received our photos! They were fabulous! They turned out way better than I was expecting/hoping.

OLAS guided me through the process and everyone we worked with were always very helpful and friendly.

Another bonus, they have photographers all over the US! So after we got our wedding photographed in Atlanta, we had a mini post-wedding shoot in Boston (that turned out just as adorable). :)

Leah, Brittany, Phillip and Anna were absolutely fantastic to work with in every aspect of planning and execution for our spring wedding. I always got prompt, friendly, helpful responses from Leah and Brittany to every question I emailed over - and there were many. They kept me informed of all kinds of deals I could take advantage of along the way, and everyone was dedicated to creating MY vision, not a preconceived photo package of their own. When we met Phillip and Anna on our wedding day, I was immediately relaxed by their sweet, natrual presence. They were calm, flexible, thoughtful, creative, and so much fun to have with us on our special day. My friends and family also commented to me how sweet they were to them and that was very noteworthy to me. I know our photos will be just as beautiful as our experience was, and I know we will cherish them for many years to come.

And on top of that, Lauren put together the cutest whimsy package possible. We LOVED how the box was tailored to how Alex proposed (seriously... what other company does this?!). And our photographers.. Phillip and Anna - clearly awesome! Our guests loved their energy (and Phillip\'s Faux-hawk) and we just know the pictures will be perfect. Best decision we made!!!

As if Leah's friendly, helpful demeanor weren't enough, Tony and I were totally sold the minute we met Ashley and Chris for our engagement session...It was scary to higher a team from a company that was based across the country, with photographers that were located 300 miles away, but Leah, Ashley and Chris made it a seem like we were right next door. From Leah's willingness to take calls at 9pm to her thoughtful detailing of our complicated timeline, she was there every step of the way.
Ashley and Chris were so fun to work with and helped us to feel so at ease that we wanted them to stick around for more fun even after the shoots were over. After ten minutes together they felt like old friends! We haven't gotten our wedding proofs back yet (its only been a week) but I already know I will be happy with them!
Thanks everyone!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

My husband and I were married in Monterey, California in August 2010. We were lucky to have Ashley and Chris as our engagement and wedding photographers. They were absolutely wonderful to work with and made our special day the best as it could possibly be. We were looking for a little more of a non-traditional feel, and that is exactly what we received. Their photos captured exactly what we were looking for. Most of the time we never even knew they were around taking photos during the ceremony and wedding, which was perfect and many guests commented on the same. My husband and I just love Ashley and Chris and have kept in touch with them. We would love for them to take more pictures of our family in the future. They are a married couple themselves, and are so adorable. You will just love them. They were very flexible, were open to any suggestions, and also had great ideas for fun and different photo shots. Once Like a Spark Photography has an absolutely amazing team of enthusiastic, energetic and fun folks. I love the way different people handle different aspects of the business. I really feel that each is an expert in their field, which gave us so many unique ideas and views to think about. We would highly recommend OLAS for your big day! You will be very happy with your choice.

A-MAZ-ING!!!

I love this company! The whole team (they split the business from the art) is friendly, funny, enthusiastic and passionate. We had our engagement session taken with them as a sort of trial run. The photos were amazing! They can make a grown man smile - and look like he means it! Photojournalism at its best. Truly captured the love and fun that me and my (now) husband enjoy together.

They are very flexible and helpful. They worked with my budget, and were very responsive to any questions I had. AND they are VERY talented! We ended up getting a guest book made out of our Engagement photos and received endless compliments on how beautiful and unique it was.

We loved every minute of working with Darcy (business),
Graham (photographer) and sometimes Ashley (owner)! Cannot wait to see the photos from the wedding day!

My husband and I are thrilled with the all around experience from OLAS. From the initial phone calls and setting up the contract (a breeze with everything online and automated) to the planning calls/emails - ensuring that we had everything we wanted in our price range was really simple and pain free.

And of course, most importantly, the photos came out great. Taking them throughout the day was a blast (we had Graham, in New England), and we had several people come up to us throughout the night and tell us that our photographer was awesome.

We can't wait until the next excuse to use their services again (baby? family reunion?). I just hope that as they grow and expand, which they seem to be doing quite rapidly, they don't lose their personal touch or quality of service.

We recommend them wholeheartedly - great company, great photographers!

We love Cali & Ashley!! We just got married in Athens, GA and my husband (woo hoo!) found Once Like a Spark online, and we loved their portfolio.

Well, let me tell you that the pictures are just PART of the wonderful experience we had with them! They were professional, helpful, and so hard-working. Prior to the wedding, they arranged a meeting to discuss all the details, set expectations and make sure they understood what WE wanted. Then they blended right into our wedding, getting shots throughout the event, but never in the way. They were also clever! Coming up with picture ideas that we would have never thought of, to make our wedding special and unique to us.

And best of all, they are sweet & kind. It was like hanging out with friends, and we are so thankful for them. I highly recommend Once Like a Spark for ANY life photos you want taken - they are simply great!!!

Cali and Ashley were a dream to work with for our wedding. Ashley talked to me about exactly what I wanted in my wedding photography, and that is what we got. We got true-to-life, beautiful, non-posed photographs that really showed how fun and laid back our wedding was. I wanted to take no longer than 15 minutes on posed family pictures, and they did it - and got all the pictures we needed, too! My house is plastered with their photographs, in frames, collages, and photo albums. I am still in love with our photos to this day. I recommended Once Like a Spark to a friend who will be using them for her wedding this year!

I found this talented photographer completely by chance online while researching a different photographer. I looked at their website, and I thought their work had some mad skills, plus their photos were bright and comfortable.
I honestly didn’t think I had a chance in hell of hiring them. I was on a tiny budget, and it was short notice. But they replied to my email and worked with my budget. Most photographers say that they are budget friendly, or that they will work with any budget - but I was less than a month away from the wedding and I had yet to find a budget friendly photographer.

A few days before the wedding Ashley and I spoke over the phone to gather last minute information and get to know each other a bit. I loved speaking to her, and I loved her get-to-know-you questions! She was the one that suggested we arrive separately so they could capture that moment. They were flexible with any last minute changes (traffic and such) and I felt like they understood us, and our reasons for doing our wedding so privately. Ashley or Cali would always confirm by phone or email. Any changes or questions were always handled super professionally.

The day of the wedding could not have gone better! It truly exceeded my expectations. We had such a great time! Cali was so sweet and made us feel so comfortable. My now husband is usually so reserved but he warmed up fast and started making jokes - it made me feel like our memories were in good hands. Cali was patient and reassuring. I had busted a blood vessel in my eye three days prior and it was still red, even after bathing it in Visine. I was so worried that my pictures would be ruined but she assured me photoshop could fix all that. She even asked me how comfortable I was with the camera being close up. It was all about us and our comfort level. I am so thankful that she took the time to get to know us! She even stayed out later than expected - in the cold no less!

The pictures turned out better than I could have hoped for, and we could not be more pleased. We had so little light, and I had a red of all things! But they made it work. They made it beautiful... + the slide show is so sweet - and the song is absolutely perfect!

(once like a spark) is simply fantastic!

Graham from Once Like a Spark was our photographer for our wedding on 3/29/14 in NYC and he and his whole team did an amazing job! Graham, our second photographer, and their assistant were all professional and fun throughout the entire day! Even when it rained all day, Graham was so excited about the cool shots that he would get that he was not afraid to stand out in the rain with us to get some amazing outdoor photos! (And they even loaned a coat to one of our freezing bridesmaids!) =) The whole team had the perfect balance of taking candid photos as well as giving us direction as to what looks best.

After our wedding we got a sneak peek of our photos to share with family and friends and everyone loved them! We then got all of our digital photos and LOVE them! We initially went through the whole set to mark all the ones that we absolutely loved and ended up with over 300! We will have a hard time deciding which ones to put in our album and could not be happier with Once Like a Spark!

I felt very comfortable throughout the planning process. I felt like each person I spoke to or emailed really understood the "look" I was going for and was super patient with any and all of my questions.
Our photographer Tracy was AWESOME. Super personable and easy to talk to. But I also appreciated how she seemed to be "everywhere and no where" at the same time. Looking back at the photos, she totally captured all the great moments and memories, but I don't actually remember seeing her taking pictures. She was able to blend in so well and knew where to go to get the best shot.
She was even able to bring my husband out of his shell. He is NOT a big fan of having his picture taken but you wouldn't really know that by looking at our photos. On the honeymoon he even said that all the pictures at the wedding got him used to it, so he didn't mind so much posing for pictures. Score!

I have nothing but good things to say about our experience with Once Like a Spark. The wedding was in Massachusetts, so we worked with Graham. He was ill the day of the wedding, but except for some sniffles, you would never know it. He went above and beyond to get a variety of pictures. Since we had a little extra time, we even climbed to the top of a parking garage to get some beautiful shots with the ocean and a bustling port in the background. The pictures are beautiful and we received them by the promised date. Highly recommended!

My husband and I had a really great experience with the entire (once like a spark) team. Leah in the Southeast region was really wonderful to work with, keeping track of all of our schedules and on top of the communication. When we were trying to schedule our engagement session for a Saturday during the height of wedding season, she kept in touch with us throughout the entire process and made sure we knew that we weren't being lost in the shuffle.

Sara, our photographer, was fantastic! She really made us both feel at ease and took the most amazing engagement and wedding pictures for us. She was professional, discreet, and never lost her cool even when some unexpected things happened during the wedding day. We've had so many of our friends comment on how beautiful the pictures are and how much they really capture the joy of the wedding.

Finally, I recommend (olas) to other brides because the talented people behind it are the kinds of people you want on your side when you get married. They will chat with you about wedding planning, enthuse with you about the day you are crafting, and do their utmost to deliver exactly what you are looking for in terms of photography. After our wedding pictures came back, we realized that some family photos were missing because of a corrupted disk drive. I think Leah and Sara were more upset than we were! They were absolutely dedicated to correcting the situation, which just goes to show how much integrity the company has and how much pride they (rightfully) take in their work and in their relationship with their clients. My mantra when I was hiring wedding vendors was to only book people with whom I would be friends with anyhow, and that strategy worked out so well with (olas).

I loved the way (once like a spark) has their team, instead of just one photographer, editor, scheduler, etc. From my initial call through the wedding day, everyone was so friendly and accommodating.

Tracy was the photographer I worked with, and while I was a little nervous at first, when we had our engagement shoot, I knew that it would all work out. She even showed up an hour early the day of the wedding to look at the venue and once she was comfortable, she got right down to business shooting while we were still getting ready.

I haven't seen the final images yet (due about 6 weeks after the wedding date) but I am confident they will be as beautiful as the engagement shots.

(Once Like A Spark) is a truly wonderful and unique photography company. Everyone on the team is such a pleasure to work with. By the end of the wedding planning process, you really do feel like a part of the OLAS family. We were very happy with the way our wedding photos turned out, and our photographer, Richie, was really great. We loved working with him because he was so passionate and easy-going. The best part about working with OLAS is that you feel very taken care of, and you just know that everyone on the team is passionate about the company and photography. Everyone I know who has worked with OLAS has had nothing but positive things to say about their experience. Keep up the good work, team OLAS!

We were very happy with the way our wedding photos turned out, and our photographer, Richie, was really great. We loved working with him because he was so passionate and easy-going. The best part about working with OLAS is that you feel very taken care of, and you just know that everyone on the team is passionate about the company and photography. Everyone I know who has worked with OLAS has had nothing but positive things to say about their experience. Keep up the good work, team OLAS! Read less

My husband and I really wanted to find a photographer that understood unique family dynamics and took incredible photos. We found that when we booked with our OLAS photographer, Nikki. The entire process of booking with Once Like a Spark was fantastic. I had a thirty minute conversation with the OWNER of OLAS where we discussed what I wanted in a photographer, what my vision was for my photography, and describing my relationship. She cared about getting to know me and getting to know what I wanted. Once I finally made the decision to book with them, I was given the opportunity to further delve into what I wanted- to consider picture lists and make the experience what I wanted. Nikki was fabulous. I highly recommend giving them a chance!!

OLAS has photographers all over the country - we were fortunate enough to have Graham. Throughout the entire planning process there was always a team member to immediately respond to a question or concern. Everyone is beyond sweet. Graham took amazing engagement and wedding pictures that fit exactly the look we were hoping for. A huge issue with my dress completely screwed up our entire timeline and Graham was cool as a cucumber. He changed around everything he initially planned to fit the new time constraints and pictures still came out awesome. They took all of my feedback seriously, and even went back to to check on some of my concerns ...because they are professional and want everyone to walk away fully satisfied, they took the time to gather extra pictures that hadnt been given to me initially, and had them edited. This group of planners and photographers is pretty amazing!

We are OVER THE MOON in love and happy with our wedding photos. Despite mother nature’s attempt to ruin my dream of beautiful outdoor wedding photos, Nikki @ OLAS was still able to create the most beautiful rustic, outdoor wedding photos in the rain (without us getting wet).
I am absolutely sincere when I say it it truly not possible for us to be any happier with both our engagement and wedding photos.

I found once like a spark online and was blown away by the beautiful photos on their website. I couldn't wait to see what wonders they could do with my own wedding and they did not disappoint! We had Graham photograph our wedding and it was almost as if he wasn't even there for most of the time, but he got such great shots of our family and friends while what I am assuming was in full on stealth-mode! There were some shots that I wish he could have gotten but I think they must just not have turned out (shots of my dress hanging before I put it on, my shoes shoes, etc). Working with Darcy was simply a pleasure I must say, of all the various vendors I had to be in touch with, she was always my favorite to do business with, I felt like I was communicating with one of my friends, she was always receptive to my ideas and just wonderful all around!

Make sure you read the contract fully before working with them so that there are no misunderstandings. Otherwise, good company.

We used OLAS for both our engagement photos and our wedding photos, and we were very pleased with the finished products.

OLAS has various folks on staff to help keep the wheels running smoothly and to provide updates to next steps, when products were finished, etc. They were willing to discuss and accommodate our desired engagement photos location, which were out of the coverage area. For the wedding, we had several touch points (everything from emails to forms to phone calls) around desired photos we would like, the schedule, and any details that the photographers should be aware of (i.e. family dynamics etc.)

The 2 shooters for our wedding were great. Not only did Shain know how to pin boutonnieres which ended up being a lifesaver, they were well-dressed and blended into the wedding attendants so they weren’t sticking out. It was also great ot have the redundancy so we could see the wedding from various views.

I wish we had extended photography for another hour or 2 to get more of the partying, but overall, very good value for the money, when comparing to similar packages and photo styles of other companies.
