We are Annie and Christian Olliver, also known as Olliver Photography. We’ve been shooting reportage, documentary style weddings in London and the rest of the UK for 9 years.
We are based in London and most of our work are urban London-y weddings but we love a country ‘do too and we’re currently expanding into destination photography all over Europe and beyond!
Sharing a love for photography, we wanted to start a business that allowed us to work together creatively and follow our passion. 9 years, (4 babies, one puppy and another bump!!) later we’re still going strong!
Our style is very relaxed, informal and friendly. We will capture the narrative of your day, at a distance. No pushy, cheesy, posey shots. This allows us to achieve natural images, inspired by light and true moments.
We draw on many influences but we are mostly inspired by the couple themselves and what is important to them, as well as setting. At an urban location in London, we are inspired by the local architecture, vibrancy of the people around, and those details that make a place special. The brickwork, street art or a canal, perhaps. Further afield, at a chateaux wedding, we’re inspired by the rolling landscape, fields of sunflowers as far as the eye can see, the stone of the chateaux, sunlit lemon trees, and shafts of light hitting tile flooring. A sense of place helps to frame the whole experience of the day.
An obsession with little details, and an understanding of how natural light can lift a subject from something ordinary to something beautiful.
Our lovely co-photographers work with us as second shooters and can also be booked individually to capture your day in the Olliver Photography style. We're super lucky to have such talented people working with us!
One of our besties, Dan is based up in Glasgow. He shot our very own wedding 5 years ago which was not easy as we are so used to being on the other side of the camera! We were rubbish subjects but he managed to make us look gorgeous, and has the best eye! Photography passions include street photography, travel photography (his Morocco travel journal is to die for!) and most recently his two little cuties Milo and Nuala Mai.
Jen + Will
Jen and Will are the loveliest couple! We first met them back in 2013 when they booked us to shoot their wonderful wedding. After bonding over a love of photography and loving their style, we managed to convince them to help us out and they have been shooting for us ever since. They work so well as a couple and also individually since the arrival of their little, Evelyn.
Harp is based in London and has been shooting weddings for donkeys years’! He has a great eye for light and anticipates so many gorgeous reportage shots. Basically, he’s always in the right place at the right time! Very relaxed, very laid back…and can’t play the harp, so don’t be fooled!!
