After growing up in Nashville and against her insatiable travel itch, Olivia Rae James found a home in muggy Charleston, South Carolina where she lives with her red-headed beau and seven-pound pup. Inspired by people in their element, botanicals, golden light, and new places, Olivia shoots with a warmth that brings ease and authenticity to her photos. Her work has been published in Kinfolk Magazine, Food & Wine, Garden & Gun and Monocle, among others.
“Olivia is a true artist, who perfectly captured the love, fun, and spirit of our wedding day. She and her assistant blended in so much that most of our guests never even noticed that we had a photographer. The result was hundreds of gorgeous photos that caught the flattering candor of everyone involved.
“Working with Olivia was a dream come true. In addition to being so very talented, Olivia also has a kind and genuine soul— two qualities that help put a nervous bride at ease!”
