I'm Olivia Bidleman Carson.
I'm a passionate creative with a strong background in analog photography. I love breakfast food, Game of Thrones, being married, and telling stories through photographs.
My style and process are unique and I take pride in going against the grain. My work is organic and full of light, life, and simplicity.
I pour my heart into creating compelling, authentic, and timeless imagery. I'm in the love business.
I love working and serving throughout the Pacific Northwest; I call Seattle home.
My work has recently been featured on Joy Wed, Offbeat Bride, The Find Lab, and PhotoVision.
"Olivia was a joy to work with. She was super warm and friendly and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. She knows just how to capture and work with available light, which is especially important when shooting on unpredictable days in Seattle. We are so happy with the way she captured our engagement, our relationship, and our personalities. She loves her craft and it shows in her work!" -Karen and Shyam
"I absolutely loved working with Olivia, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for something more than just beautiful photos. She has an amazing way of capturing people and moments, especially those soft by magical ones which are often overlooked in our daily lives. Not only is she a source of constant encouragement but also gives helpful directions to get that perfect shot. She makes you feel at home in front of the camera to let your true self shine!" -Lia Lee
"Olivia is such a sweet and kind person. She made me feel at ease right away and helped my husband feel more comfortable with posing. She was always on time, prompt and thorough during sessions and really wanted to make sure our ideas and concepts were considered." -Tessa and Jeremy
"I never realized the importance of having not only a talented photographer but thoughtful one as well, I was so impressed with Olivia’s desire to know our love story, our likes and dislikes and overall goal for our wedding day. She took the extra time to meet with us and really work her art around our crazy lifestyle. I was hesitant at first to go all out with a photographer not knowing how much I would cherish these moments. Literally every time I open my computer, cell phone, my hubby's icon when he calls, are moments from that beautiful day. When Im missing him or wanting to reminisce, I can so easily and without regret. Im so thankful those more experienced than I counseled me to find a quality photographer, and finding Olivia blew all expectations out of the water. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone who is able and willing to adapt her art and vision around you and your partners. I can’t emphasize enough how thankful I am to be able to hang these photos in my home, have them in an album and in the palm of hand at all times, their beauty is incomparable." -Emilee and Ittay
"If I could think of one word to describe Olivia s a photographer it would be 'intentional.' Olivia made such a point to get to know Brandon and I as a couple throughout our time together and it really showed in our photos. She did an amazing job of capturing our love for each other and also our individual personalities. We are SO thankful we chose her as our wedding photographer because we can look back on the photos and relive so many sweet moments of the day due to the way she captured them. Not only are the quality of her photos incredible, but she has such a calm and sweet presence about her that made us feel so comfortable while taking photos. We highly recommend hiring Olivia to capture such an important day!" -Colleen and Brandon
