I'm a lifestyle and family photographer based in Venice. I love natural light and true emotion. I have worked as a photographer all over Europe and Southeast Asia, before I settled down here in Venice. The most important thing is to enjoy yourself and create good memories. Enjoy yourself and I'll take care of the rest!
- I have tried many professions - journalism, teaching English in Cambodia, working as a custom broker assistant and teaching yoga in India. I loved it all, but being a photographer is the most fun!
- I love to travel with my motorcycle, and exploring new places and cultures, and going boogie dancing with my husband. When I'm not doing that, I enjoy just staying easy at home with a book and my cats.
- I can't live without trying and learning new things, and without going on a solo trips from time to time!

Customer Love for Olga
"Working with Olga was so easy! She met us just a few minutes from our hotel and walked us through the winding streets and canals of Venice, stopping to take photos along the way! She was incredibly patient even through a toddler meltdown and instead captured my favorite photos of my boys eating gelato smiling. We captured so many great photos of this special time as a family! " - Megan
"Our experience with Olga was amazing. My sister and I were in Venice celebrating our mom's 70th birthday. Our photo session was very early for lighting reasons and not having to deal with crowds, Olga suggested we start the shoot at 6:30 am. It was incredible being at St Marks Square that early and it was essentially ours. Olga was very professional and easy to get along with. In the short time we were together she setup allot of different groupings with the three of us. During the session she took us on a mini tour that offered multiple backdrops which in the end provided allot of variety within our pictures. I am also a photographer, so the idea of being on the other side of the camera was a little foreign for me, but I took Olga's direction and she made the session very relaxed and fun. When the shoot was done she took us to a cute spot to grab breakfast and by the time we walked back through the square it was filled with tourists. Our session with Olga was magical and definitely a trip highlight. We were very pleased with how the photo's turned out and will cherish them always. " - Kat

"We had a great experience with Olga! We love our photos- they are the perfect souvenir from our trip to Italy! It was nice that Olga knew the area well and was able to pick out good spots for photos and work around the light to get the perfect shots! She was also very sweet and gave us some restaurant recommendations and things to see during our time in Venice :) " - Jamie
"Olga was amazing from start to finish. I felt like we received a mini tour of Venice with someone that could also take killer photographs. Double win! She was professional, easy-going and helpful as I plodded the cobblestone streets in impractical heels and couldn’t choose between white or navy pants. Our 60 minute session with Olga allowed us to be more “in the moment” for the remainder of our trip because we knew we didn’t have to stress over getting the perfect pics. We knew she already handled that part!" - Capin
"Olga was so accommodating and knowledgeable about Venice. We love our photos. Thanks, Olga!" - Ana
"Olga was amazing. She was incredibly thoughtful about framing her shots and finding the ideal angles to make everyone look their best. She took the time to both learn about what we wanted and make us feel comfortable in front of the camera. I was nervous before the shoot, but the experience was really fun and relaxing. It felt like strolling through the streets of Venice with a knowledgeable local who was pointing out fun facts about the city. Olga took truly beautiful photos. She has a fantastic eye for colour and composition and captured lovely and natural moments. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect experience. Thank you Olga!" - Mila
"Olga was amazing and she got the perfect shots. She is talented and professional and hands-down we recommend her to everyone. She also gives good posing direction - book her! " - Rochelle
