Born out of a shared passion for photography and cinema, Olivia & Dan believe in capturing authentic emotion and presenting it in a cinematic, innovative style with a story-telling approach.
Dan nurtured his experience with the camera during his twenties – a time that was spent travelling through New Zealand, Australia and South East Asia. Always artistically minded (he’s also a classically trained guitarist and has been in a band or two), these cultural adventures triggered a deep desire to tell stories, and photography became a natural way for him to explore that. By contrast, Olivia’s love affair with the camera started much earlier. Inspired by street photography and Italian neorealism, she began capturing rustic scenes on black and white film during long, indolent summer holidays at her Italian grandparent’s house in Borgotaro; a tiny town in the Apennine Mountains. Following success in the luxury fashion industry, Olivia expanded her stylistic references – influences which have today, allowed her to integrate art with the innovation of design. When the time came for change, she remembered her grandmother’s words “Va dove ti porta il cuore,” or ‘follow your heart,’ and the couple became what is now known as Olivia & Dan.
In the autumn of 2019, they welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world, and she has taken the lion’s share of the camera lens ever since.
In 2020, Olivia & Dan were awarded the prestigious Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars Of Wedding Photography award.

OUR STYLE & APPROACH
We both have a strong fascination with human connection, endeavouring to document emotive stories and authentic, genuine moments – a focus which we translate into the creative outlet of wedding photography.
Our work takes cinematic direction, forming a body of timeless, nostalgic imagery that harnesses natural light and forms a balanced composition. We also integrate a subtle colour grade to further enhance the cinematic atmosphere of our images.
Blending fine-art with documentary technique, we conduct an unobtrusive approach – endeavouring to merge into the background in order to capture the natural, unplanned moments that highlight your unique connection as a couple.
Natural and refined, the end result is a collection of polished, consistent images that narrate the story of your day, from start to finish.
If you feel an affinity to our photography style, we’d love to work together to authentically memorialise your wedding day.
"We knew straight away after seeing their portfolio that we wanted to got with Olivia & Dan. Such beautiful and cinematic work that far transcends the wedding photography genre. They made us feel relaxed and ourselves on the day, and managed to capture so many moments we'd have missed otherwise. We would highly recommend them!"
