Hi, I'm Audrey.
I'm a Philly-based creative who prefers taking photos to writing stories, but I'll do my best.
As the youngest of three, I think I was predisposed to be an observer. I grew up in rural South Jersey, where I learned as much as possible by witnessing those around me. I was raised in an evangelical household, spent most of my time in church, and was homeschooled until 9th grade, when I entered public high school (if right now you're picturing Lindsay Lohan's character in Mean Girls, you're not far off from my experience). I eventually found my voice in photography, creating defiant (and admittedly overly-dramatic) portraits of myself and my peers. Some of those early works, although crude in execution, were the most honest and pivotal expressions of self that I'd been able to create in any medium, artistically or relationally.
I call myself an artist with a shrug, and a slight blush. The way I see it, my camera is a tool that allows me to exist with more freedom, connection, and power than I would otherwise have. Taking pictures of people helps me put those feelings out into the world where I can share them with others.
As 'Yoncé says, "I want everyone to feel like this". Please reach out, if you want to.
Olive Eye Photography
I got my hands on a Canon Rebel in 2008, and I'm grateful every day for that.
My excitement and curiosity led me to develop artistically, and eventually, professionally. My first years assisting wedding photographers taught me the logistics, best practices, bad practices, and the huge array of choices that lay before me as an artist. I gained experience under various studios and lead photographers while I worked my way through school alongside my new husband, earning my bachelor's in marketing. In 2016, I launched Olive Eye Photography- the culmination of years of practice, artistic fine-tuning, and explorative expression.
Olive Eye Photography is simply your story through my eyes- whether that means documenting once in a lifetime moments, or the everyday moments that make up life.
I believe these moments should be cherished, and it's my honor to capture them for you.
“Choosing Audrey as our wedding photographer was easily one of the best decisions we made about our big day. From the start, her professionalism and experience helped to make the entire process incredibly enjoyable... On our wedding day, she worked diligently to make sure she captured all of the most special moments. The quality of the work we have received has been outstanding. I would highly recommend Olive Eye Photography to anyone looking for a photographer for a big event and especially for a wedding!”
