We are
MILOU & OLIN

We are wedding photographers seeking natural moments, beautiful scenes and epic couples. Your love gives us heart explosions.

Milou, the Portuguese Water Dog, remains the love of Olin's life and was the inspiration for her start in photography. Milou's favorite things to eat are: cheese, strawberries, hard boiled eggs, avocados, blueberries and brussel sprouts. Water and agility are what Milou loves most, next to eating that is!

OUR BAND OF MERRY MAKERS

When Olin started photography over a decade ago, she never thought that she would be fortunate enough to have her own little San Francisco bespoke boutique. Now, Milou and Olin Photography has grown into a petite family of amazing photographers all devoted to one thing: beautiful wedding imagery for our discerning and stylish couples delivered with the utmost care, devotion and impeccable attention. From the very start, the first click of our cameras and all up until the final delivery of our fine crafted wedding albums, we are here for our couples every step of the way, to make the process a beautiful and smooth part of your wedding experience. We are grateful for the honor of being a part of your wedding. Thank you!

The doors to our San Francisco and Sacramento studio is always open! We love to sit down with you over a cup of coffee or a glass of champagne (your choice!), and get to know each other better. We have a feeling that your story is pretty darn cute! We take having fun and laughing very seriously so don't hesitate, give Donna a call and let's hang out. Let us know if you would like to visit, we would love to have you!

HAPPENING LIVE IN

OUR PROCESS

It all starts with that initial email or phone call. Pretty soon you're chatting and laughing away with Donna and telling us all about your wedding details and dreams. We love to hear it all and Donna will help you every step of the way. 

Next comes the part where you sit down with your photographer, Olin, Don or Meredith, we all share a genuine love for people, love and most of all, our clients. We welcome you to our studio to hang out and we will trade stories and get to know each other better while we look through some beautiful albums of past weddings we have photographed. This is the part where we fall in love with each other and the rest is easy. The only hard part is waiting patiently for your special day!

Donna

Momma Donna, our concierge, loves chatting with and taking care of you!

Donna embodies our studio values of genuine client connection, meticulous attention to detail. bespoke customer service and utmost client love. And when she's done doing that, she's making sure that every one in the studio is fed and happy and will sometimes show off her slammin' dance moves!

When she actually has some spare time, Donna loves to curl up and crochet the cutest little creations for her friends. 

MEREDITH

DON

Carpe that diem! That’s Don’s favorite phrase. Don’s been cooking up adventure ever since he can remember, Don first attended culinary school but put aside aprons for lenses to enable his creative side, and pursued his passion in photography

Nobody minds, though; when he’s not checking out the latest bowtie to add to his collection or man-crushing on cars, he’s creating kick ass photography. Don's work is already being featured on multiple blogs.

Don totally blends into any scene, whether he’s letting his humor loose or getting smacked by wedding bouquets. He has a deep love for his friends and family and strives to document genuine connections in his wedding photography His favorite thing is being in the presence of two people that love each other.

BORIS

Boris loves photographing people and his passion is documenting life. People are always his main source of inspiration, human stories fascinates him. Faces alone can tell so much of one's life's experience. For Boris, inspiration and ideas comes from life and every time he photographs a wedding, he is not just capturing beautiful emotional images with great light and composition, he also strives to tell a story.

Boris says you can’t go wrong with an 80’s movie. There’s no such thing as watching Ferris Bueller’s Day off or Back to the Future too many times. Boris is very particular about his coffee, to say that he is coffee enthusiast would be an understatement. He dreams of bbq'ing on warm afternoons with his wife, 2 sons and wild dachshund, Fry.

Ultimately he believes in your unique and individual story, especially on your wedding day.
