Nice to meet you!
I'm Olga, and I'm absolutely thrilled to be part of your big day as your wedding photographer!
As a wife and a mother to two wonderful girls, family is at the heart of everything I do. When I'm not behind the camera, you'll most likely find me outdoors, embracing my adventurous spirit. I'm an avid hiker, biker, and swimmer, always seeking new places to explore. This love for the outdoors naturally translates into my photography style. If you're up for an adventurous photo shoot, whether it's climbing a mountain or discovering hidden gems, count me in!
Aside from photography, I've been working as a healthcare professional for the past 12 years, performing diagnostic tests and exams on eyes at The Ottawa General Hospital. My passion for helping others remains a significant part of my life, and I find immense joy in connecting with patients and staying up-to-date with new medical technology.
When I'm not capturing beautiful moments or working, you'll find me in the kitchen, where cooking has become one of my favorite pastimes. My husband's Lebanese heritage has influenced my cuisine, and I adore experimenting with fresh and savory Mediterranean dishes.
I can't wait to get to know you better and create stunning memories that you'll cherish for a lifetime.
“I honestly can’t even put into words how amazing Olga was. Beyond organized, professional and kind.”
my passion for photography
Photography has been a part of my life since I was 18 when I got my first DSLR camera, and it quickly became my faithful companion on my worldly adventures. Being the dedicated family and friends photographer, I've captured countless precious moments throughout the years. Little did I know that these experiences would pave the way for a spontaneous decision to pursue photography professionally. With a new camera, lenses, and a thirst for knowledge, I immersed myself in workshops and videos, connecting with incredible people who guided me to where I am today.
Photography, to me, is more than just freezing a moment in time; it's about capturing love and emotions. The genuine joy in your eyes when you smile, the playful smirk that follows a witty remark, or the infectious laughter that ensues when someone trips and falls – these are the moments I cherish. My goal is to create images that will transport you back to those moments, making you relive the joy and excitement you felt at that very time.
During photoshoots, the world around me fades away, and I step into a realm of creativity and connection. Each session is unique, but they all share a common thread of uplifting energy and fulfillment. I never imagined that working in this field could bring me so much joy and satisfaction.

What is your favourite season to shoot in?
I'm a summer enthusiast, embracing the longer golden hours and the delightful outdoor weather. Warm and humid days don't bother me at all!
