Miami Wedding Photographer


Modern Editorial Storyteller

With 13+ years of experience as a wedding photographer, and more than 200 weddings photographed, I've mastered the ability to tell your story, capturing candid moments as they unfold.


What makes my work unique?

I can blend different styles in one image and often use more than one approach from one part of a wedding day to another,

There are many styles to describe different specialties, my approach and style overlap in these 3 wedding photography styles:

Documentary Style

My approach to the wedding day is like a news story, capturing candid moments and raw emotions.

Unlike photojournalist, however, I might modify lighting for added drama, I interact direction to my client to document a personal story, directing poses in a way that feels natural and less staged.

Editorial Style

Representing the bride and group, clients in the most beautiful way, working hard with lighting and composition to produce the kind of photos that belong to Magazines, free of background distraction while still conveying an overall narrative.

Overall I prioritize that my clients experience the day in a fun and relaxed setting and document authentic moments as they unravel with my guidance and direction, while still creating a natural feel.

Fine Art Style

The main goal of Fine Art is to capture images that can be hung in a gallery as a piece of art.

I offer an amazing selection of Fine Art Wall Art, Fine Art Paper Albums, Amalfi, State of the Art Canvas, Metal all Made In Italy.

How my clients describe my style?


"When searching for wedding photographers I knew I wanted traditional, classic, and timeless pictures. When looking for different vendors that hit these keywords, you came up and the pictures are exactly what I was thinking of in my head (which is hard to do because I always have a ton of ideas floating around)."

"I found your Instagram and I was struck by your ability to capture warmth and beauty through photos. There is a drama and contrast to your photos without being excessively retouched or staged in appearance. Finding the mix of natural and artistic seems to be a challenge in wedding photography and I am so impressed by your ability to create drama without sacrificing the “realness” of the day. We could only hope for such a commemoration of our day."

Reviews


I Have been have been featured on various online wedding blogs including, Style Me Pretty, The Knot, Munaluchi Bridal, along with many others.

Here are some of the kind words i've received from my past clients.


Our wedding photos where artistic, beautiful, and full of love.


If you're lucky enough to come across Claudia Oliver's page, do yourself a favor and book her IMMEDIATELY. I've never met another photographer who cared so much about every single picture they take. Claudia puts everything she has into the pictures for your special day and it shows. She came to Mexico for my destination wedding in February and everything went extremely smoothly. She had wonderful advice and suggestions on how to pose and how to make sure we were looking like our best selves in the pictures. She also did an engagement session for us in DC prior to our wedding. It was a great experience getting to know Claudia and working with her on both days. The engagement session really helped us get to know one another and become familiar with her style. We were absolutely blown away when we got our engagement pictures back and knew immediately that our wedding pictures would be just as good if not better!

F.A.Q
Frequently Ask Questions
My Photography Coverage collections are priced based on these factors:
Hours of Coverage, Second Photographer, Albums and Wall Art, Additional Coverage as Rehearsal Dinner, and Welcome party or Next day Brunch.



I highly recommend a minimum of 8 hours of coverage, this will give you enough time from getting ready to most of the reception.
Additional coverage is needed when:
  • Separate locations for getting ready, ceremony, and reception.
  • If you are planning to document a Getaway formal exit with Sparklers or Lanterns

An average of 1500 images is delivered for an 8 hour coverage.

Having a second photographer isn't necessary but available if you would prefer to have one. I would suggest to have a second photographer in these cases:
  • If the groom is getting ready in a different location than the bride
  • If you want cocktail hour coverage
  • If you have access to balconies or high locations for your ceremony
  • If your wedding has 200 guests or larger
  • If you are not doing a first look and only have one hour to document family formals and reception details.
However, having a second photographer does not mean you will have a lower quality coverage, so don't feel pressured to add one to your package.
The first step of the editing process is called "cooling". This process eliminates pictures where people have their eyes closed, flash did not fire, or doesn't show flattering expressions. We will make sure to take enough pictures so every moment is displayed.

Yes, all images are edited and retouched. All our wedding photography coverage includes our "basic editing": Cropping, exposure correction, color correction, contrast, and white balance.

Any image alteration like weight slimming, removal of objects or people, wrinkle or acne removal, skin softening, or sky enhancement is available for an additional fee and not included in our "basic editing". If you have purchased an album, all album image selections will go through these enhancements at no extra cost.

The pictures will be edited at any point between 6 to 8 weeks after the wedding date.
Yes! Having time to meet the couples before is my top priority. In person meetings at my studio will give you a chance to see close ups of the amazing wall art and albums, made in Italy, that I offer. If your schedule is busy or you are not local, we can do the consultation via zoom or any video call of your preference.
As I mentioned earlier, the best way to describe my style would be a modern editorial documentary storyteller.
Yes! Our exclusive online gallery allows you and your guests to instant download all high resolution images watermark free. You can print on your lab or order directly through our convenient mobile app.
Yes! I have been doing local and abroad destination weddings for the past 10 years. Since I spend most of my summers in Washington D.C and New York.
Yes! Since I have a background in graphic design this is my second passion. As an editorial storyteller I document your wedding with the vision of the final story of your day to be printed in the most beautiful fine art editorial piece. We are proud to offer the most amazing album line made in Italy.
