I'm Lauren Olivia!
I am small town, margarita loving, fast talking, stationary hoarding wedding photographer. My body is 65% water and 35% pizza.. supreme with anchovies to be exact. Even though I work for myself I have two jack russells who rule the house and I've been in love with the same boy since high school. I love design work and will flip for anything rose gold or blush in colour but grew up a total tomboy. My Nanna once told me, "You don't wear your heart on your sleeve Lauren, you wear it on your face." Olivia is not my real last name, it is my middle name and the fact I photograph people in love for a living is simply incredible. I babble way too fast and way too much - have fun keeping up.

A perfect afternoon in the Pine Tree Forest with Riley and Bella for their engagement shoot.
The title says it all.
What makes being a LOBRIDE different? Come see what part of the experience includes for you wedding photography!
The sweetest of couples, Ashleigh and Jarryd got married on the most picturesque April morning at Riverlakes Golf Course. An heirloom hair piece, rock-your-socks-off bridal party and floral bridal portraits.. what else could you want?
Latrobe Chapel, Roma Street Parklands and Victoria Park.. a heavenly mix of venues for Melissa and Ryan's fab Brisbane wedding.
A stunningly perfect Sunshine Coast beach wedding for the books!
An amazing relaxed wedding in the small New Zealand town of Napier is where Bonita and Joe promised to spend the rest of their lives together. It's funny how different the light in New Zealand is to Australia in comparison. The pastel colours almost mimic California on a sunny day like this one and the greens just popped - a wonderful place to start a marriage!
I couldn't help but feel the need to edit most of these photographs in black and white.. this whole day just screamed vintage beauty to me. It was an absolute pleasure watching Jasmine and Jason tie the knot to a love ten years in the making! It was a walk in the park, literally, and you could see the people they chose to celebrate their day with meant everything to them.. not to mention they all knew how to bust a move! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs and thank you SO much for having me be apart of your gorgeous day!
People always ask me what happens when it rains on a wedding day and I feel like from now on I’m just going to show them these photos as the answer. Katie + Jacob are extraordinary. The first contact I had from Katie came all the way from Antartica where she and Jacob were working at the time - she joked about having to wait painfully for all the photos on my website to load and I couldn’t be happier she did.
