Modern Editorial Storyteller
My vision as an editorial wedding photographer is to capture effortless and picturesque editorial moments documenting the love stories of my clients. Every part of the day will be photographed such as small moments between family and friends as it is essential to encase the memory of the event authentically. As your photographer, I will ensure that every image is a souvenir of your wedding day.
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 distinctive 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:
- Timeless Documentary Style
- Editorial Elegant Modern Style
- Fine Art Style
Documentary Style: The Timeless Art of Storytelling
As Documentary-style wedding photographers, I work on capturing candid and raw emotions in a Classic and elegant way.
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.
What Is Documentary-Style Photography?
Documentary style photography highlights the most important portions of a wedding by capturing how the moment felt not only how it looked. It is more of a form of storytelling and authentically documenting the wedding. The goal is to lay out the complete story through the images.
Moments that exhibit special moments such as an interaction between the bride and her father or a funny moment with the flower girl.
Every little second has significance to the overall memories of the event.
Editorial Elegant Modern Style
As an Editorial wedding photographer, I oversee creating a posed and elegant image without making the photograph look staged.
I will make you look like a model and help you learn ways to pose and stand to make the image look exactly right. I make sure that every image is perfectly laid out and the poses still look natural and effortless.
What Is Editorial-Style Wedding Photography?
Editorial style wedding photography documents the bride and the groom in the most beautiful way through lighting and composition, producing magazine-like quality. It blends posed fine art with documentary-style details. It is the base of fashion and magazine-style photographs.
The use of dramatic lighting and a wide diversity of angles. Editorial wedding photography emphasizes telling a story as well as capturing the emotion of the people and details of the wedding.
Fine Art Polished Images
As a Fine art wedding photographer, I am determined in creating a glamorous and aesthetic outlook of the wedding story.
My goal is to create a set of cohesive images of the wedding day that are timeless and classic. I craft my images in a way to tell a clear story through captivating art-like pieces. They are taken with precision and commitment to create a finished and polished image photograph.
These images are an artistic composition, not only a documentation of the wedding day. The images alone are meant to be taken as an art piece while still being a relative part of your wedding story.
What Is Fine Art Style Wedding Photography?
The main goal of Fine Art is to capture images that can be hung in a gallery as a piece of art. The images are produced with the highest quality as I am focused on every detail. Everything is considered whether the dress, veil, shoes, bouquet, invitations, jewelry, or rings.
So much time is taken in creating a wedding theme and color palette, so wedding photos must translate them with importance. Although these minute details can be overlooked, they are essential in providing the full experience of the wedding while keeping a consistent, clean, artistic, and elegant image.
I will ensure that every image is natural and flattering while still candid emotion. Your wedding day shouldn’t simply be a set of images, fine art wedding photography takes a simple image and elevates it into a crafted art piece.
What makes my work unique?
I can blend distinctive styles in one image and often use more than one approach from one part of a wedding day to another.
"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."

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!
