The "O"

in J&O

Olivia grew up in the countryside of SW Michigan. Since she was little she loved taking and being in photos. When middle school came and Myspace was all the rage she became quite good at setting up her dad's DSLR and taking new headshots for herself. In college while studying biochemistry she took a photography class to learn how to better utilize all the features of her dad's new DSLR. The college asked her to work for them capturing sports photos. Then friends and family started asking her to capture their family's, engagements, and weddings in 2012. 

Olivia also serves at a day of coordinator for Marion Magnolia Farms in Cassopolis, MI. She's excited to bring her confidence, peaceful nature, and eye for detail to another part of the wedding industry.

Olivia can usually be found feeding someone. She loves hosting and cooking meals for others. Her heart for hospitality is rooted in her desire for everyone to recognize their worth and walk in their giftings.

The outdoors and countryside or lush gardens are her happy-place.
