We are the Olguins
We are Alex and Cass. We’ve been rocking this marriage thing for 15 incredible years now and we still enjoy each other’s company. It’s not just all hearts and butterflies! We’ve been juggling a couple of businesses while raising our awesome kiddos – Grace, Isaac, and Judah. And let’s not forget our furry companion, Archie, the coolest Groodle ever! Our life is a whirlwind of excitement, with our household being the epicenter of “beautiful chaos.” Balancing work, family, and kids might sound like a handful, but we thrive on the adventure!
Cass is the genius behind BAILAR, our dance photography business that captures creativity in motion and manages a lot of the behind-the-scenes at Olguin Photography. We’re also coffee aficionados on the hunt for the perfect roast! If you’ve got any bean recommendations, share the love!
“WE’RE NOT USED TO BEING PHOTOGRAPHED”
– 98% OF MY COUPLES
When it comes to wedding photography, there are a bunch of terms floating around like Editorial, Photojournalism, Fine Art, Documentary, etc. I find it MUCH easier to just explain my style as “creative storytelling”. Simply put – I LOVE documenting humans.
I don’t go around giving you a million cues and directions, I take pictures of what’s happening for most of the day. I direct only when necessary because I believe your photographer should not be the center of wedding vendors dictating everything on the day. I like to blend in as another one of your guests but with a very important role to play. I love getting creative which means there’s some direction involved, but that’s a very small part of the day. Past couples say that the portrait time was their favourite part of the day. Why? Because I make it fun and spontaneous.
