Hey there! We are Nicole and Scott, two of the Pacific NW photographers! We met while rock climbing and our adventurous personalities instantly clicked! We both learned photography on film SLR cameras “back in the day,” and since then our training has been mostly self-taught and hands-on workshops. There are so many resources out there for photographers to keep you up to date in a quickly evolving industry, just one of the many things we love about our job!
We love the fact that we are able to explore our passions for photography, and being able to do it together is just the cherry on top! Our personalities really compliment each other and while we are working we can be serious but also lively, enthusiastic and sometimes comical! We both have different strengths that really come together to help us get the perfect shots. I’m more detail oriented and am always swooning over the pretty details, while Scott is more the casual one, cracking jokes with the groomsmen.
We have been head shooters at OLAS since the summer of 2015, and we have absolutely loved every moment of it! Being able to capture the true love and emotions of different couples is one of our favorite things about what we do. When we are doing photoshoots we aim to capture those real emotional moments and we prioritize experience and relationship focused photography over posing. Our style also includes editorial photography with a photojournalistic feel.
When we are not traveling and taking photos we are either trying new delicious foods, or cheering on our favorite sports team! We are big fans of the San Francisco Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers! We also love spending as much time as possible with our sweet retired racing greyhound, Mad Max. Max ran in over 400 races, but now he likes to spend his time lounging on his choice of many doggie beds around the house!
