“Photography, alone of the arts, seems perfected to serve the desire humans have for a moment – this very moment – to stay.” Sam Abell
Her work is featured in every listing in this book! Now let Olga capture a moment in YOUR life.
Where Is It? Based in Rehoboth and available anywhere – the beach, the city, even in your backyard. Why Should I Go? Olga Vickers is a young, energetic artist with a strong creative vision and the talent to make the most of every moment. Not only does her work grace almost every page of this book, but it has appeared in Delware Bride magazine, and she has even written articles on photography for the Cape Gazette. Since falling in love with photography as a child, Olga has made a life-long journey of transforming her passion for the art into a business. She puts her heart and soul into every job. Whether it is a wedding or engagement, a fashion portfolio or a senior picture, Olga approaches every job the same way. Be it a bride and groom’s first kiss, a family walking
down the beach or the smiling face of a child, Olga tries to capture the story in every image. Children don’t have the ability to fake happiness, so Olga gets down to their level, to play with them, to talk to them and create that moment of magic that you can look back on and know was real. Her style involves minimal direction and watching the scenes before her unfold. Olga then tries to capture something new and unique every time and limits the number of traditional shots in favor of attempting to capture the natural interactions occurring before the lens. Many beach portrait clients have said that their session was so enjoyable it became a highlight of their vacation. The photograph is cherished as much as the memory of family togetherness that it encapsulates. You can also check out Olga’s website for more samples of her work.
