When Olin started photography over a decade ago, she never thought that she would be fortunate enough to have her own little Californian, all women, bespoke boutique. Now, Milou and Olin Photography has grown into a petite family of amazing photographers all devoted to one thing: beautiful wedding imagery for our discerning and stylish couples delivered with the utmost care, devotion and impeccable attention. From the very start, the first click of our cameras and all up until the final delivery of our fine crafted wedding albums, we are here for our couples every step of the way, to make the process a beautiful and smooth part of your wedding experience. We are grateful for the honor of being a part of your wedding. Thank you!

It all starts with that initial email or phone call. Pretty soon you're chatting and laughing away with Kayla and telling us all about your wedding details and dreams. We love to hear it all and we will help you every step of the way.
Next comes the part where you sit down with your photographer, Olin, Lia, Brooke, Alicia, or Michelle, we all share a genuine love for people, love and most of all, our clients. We welcome you to our studio to hang out and we will trade stories and get to know each other better while we look through some beautiful albums of past weddings we have photographed. This is the part where we fall in love with each other and the rest is easy. The only hard part is waiting patiently for your special day!

“We had a total blast!”
We had the best possible experience with Milou + Olin and it shows in the pictures! They captured artistic and original moments of our wedding that embody all the emotions and beauty of the day. Their secret weapon is that they took time to know us so they anticipated our needs. What more could you ask for?”
"We had no idea that we'd be gaining a friend."
We’ve had the opportunity to create amazing memories with Caroline by our side, fist pumping and showing off our kung fu moves at Crissy Field, baking like cornbread under hot Texas sun, and searching for Big Foot in Seattle. Needless to say, I’m excited to see what other life turning events we can share with Caroline & the Milou + Olin posse.
“A beautiful story of our love!"
The moment my husband and I sat down with Caroline we knew that she would be the perfect photographer to capture such an important day in our lives. Not only was she genuinely interested in learning about what we envisioned for our wedding photos, she also had a clear interest in learning about our personalities in general.
