NEW ORLEANS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Dee Olmstead

So glad you're here, I'm Dee

A New Orleans Wedding Photographer

As a published and award-winning New Orleans wedding photographer, I have photographed hundreds of couples from New Orleans to Baton Rouge and beyond.

 I believe that you deserve a custom unforgettable wedding experience. I want you to look back at these images and see yourselves, not the cookie-cutter couple the wedding industry has led you to believe you should be.

 Let's create stunning imagery filled with movement, light, and the kind of laughter that makes your belly hurt. After all, it's your wedding day, shouldn't it be about you?

I call my style "lived in romance". It's romantic, carefree, fun, and graceful all at the same time. I focus on moments over things and prioritize real over the contrived.  I believe a photograph should make you feel something.  Take a look at recent weddings.

from our clients:

"I was more picky about choosing a photographer than any other vendor and I can say that we chose the right one 100%, without a doubt! You are the best of the best and we are so thankful for the time you've invested in us and in our photos! They are so perfect!"

Emma & Jerry

“We couldn't be happier with Clover. It was truly an elegant experience from start to finish. We were treated like royalty.”

aria & declan

“Our pictures from Clover are breathtaking. I still can't believe that's actually us. What an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience”

HOW IT WORKS

The Wedding PROCESS

01

Availability

The first thing couples want to know is if I'm available on their wedding date. Inquiring a year out is recommended. In order to provide the best client experience possible, I limit the number of weddings I accept each year.  

02

booking

This comes with a delivery of my wedding magazine and questionnaires to help you plan and prep for things as best you possibly can!

03

PLANNING + CONSULTATIONS

I'll work with you to create the engagement session of your dreams. Take advantage of a beautiful client closet.  We'll also discuss the moments and people that matter to you most.

04

ENGAGEMENT SESSION

An engagement session is one of the best ways you can prep for your wedding.  Let's hang out for a couple hours!

05

YOUR WEDDING

I'll be there every step of the way focusing on the beautiful moments unfolding no matter how big or small.  I'm known for my extremely fast turn around time.  Typically under 6 weeks.

Although my main focus is weddings, I like to fill my calendar with family, boudoir, maternity, and portraits sessions in the off season.

Do you shoot more than weddings?

Since no two weddings are exactly the same, I offer custom pricing for each client.  Wedding pricing starts at $3,000 for 4 hours.

What is the price point?

Most of my clients book a year or more in advance.  About 10% book 6-9 months before their wedding day.

When Should I Book?

Do you travel within the US?

Absolutely!  Although I am a New Orleans wedding photographer,  I shoot many destination weddings each year and love photographing out of the country as well.

What's your photographic specialty?

I specialize in weddings, engagements, bridals, elopements, and boudoir.

What Is Your Photography style?

I focus on images that are true to color and on the brighter side.  I want to show your day just how it was without heavy-handed editing.

Do you shoot film or digital?

For weddings I will typically shoot a few rolls of film.  With engagement or bridal sessions I will sometimes do about half the session on film and the rest on digital.

Do You Photograph Proposals?

New Orleans proposals are one of my favorite things to photograph.  I even help plan them.  Contact for details!

How many Weddings to You accept per year?

15. It's all about the client experience.  I want my couples to have a great time working with me.  Limiting the number of weddings I accept helps me give them an unforgettable experience.
