fine-art wedding photography for the ultramodern couple

dee olmstead

I spent my days growing up in the California sunshine. Mexican street food was readily available and long trips to the beach were a summertime staple. I remember staring out the window as we drove down the winding Malibu roads. Hues of green, pink, and blue all whizzing by, catching my eye.  Before the trip was over we’d pull over on the side of the road and pick out the biggest and shiniest strawberries from a farmer’s stand. Nothing will ever match the sensation of biting into one of those red berries, freshly picked and hot from the sun on a salty day. It’s memories like this that I’ll treasure forever. Looking back,





I wish I had a photo to represent this moment in time. Something to pass down to my kids. I won’t always be here to tell the story so I need something tangible to do that for me. That’s why I believe my job as your wedding photographer is wholeheartedly important. A wedding day is fleeting and my job is to make sure you have a record of all of the wonderful things that happened, no matter how big or small. A living memory of the beautiful love story you and your fiance share, something created to outlive us all. Don’t leave your day to chance. You deserve a legacy.

After years in the industry and hundreds of clients later, I've learned that peace-of-mind is the greatest thing I can give to my couples. My clients don't have to worry about missed images, non-existent communication, an unfriendly team, or poor quality photos. I take care of every single detail for them. That's what makes me different.

My husband and I were so pleased with our photographer- there are a lot of choices out there! We wanted someone who was personable and knowledgeable that would put us at ease throughout the process. Dee was all of those things and more! We were thrilled with out photos both for the engagement shoot and the wedding day. Dee is the sweetest and somehow made our awkward selves photogenic!

I truly can not say enough wonderful things about Dee and her fabulous team. Picking an wedding photographer can we pretty overwhelming just because there is just so many photographers to choose from. But once I met with Dee, we clicked and I knew that she was the photographer for our special day.  From the beginning she sat down with me and we made a clear timeline and plan for the big day. She would meet with me for over and hour and let me share my vision for our wedding day and never did I feel rushed. She just listened and gave me ideas that made our pictures even better. .. She truly is the best!!

I really could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding! Dee made all of my fairytale wedding dreams come true and I am so thankful for that. She was amazing to work with and even my husband said "she made taking pictures not so bad", which if you knew him you would know how great that is! So thank you again Dee, for everything!
