Hello there! We are Derek + Kristi Olson, husband & wife wedding photographers based in Asheville, NC. We met each other in 2008 over a game of Cranium and have been inseparable ever since. In 2012, we made the best decision of our lives and got married. And in 2018 we had a beautiful baby girl and she melts our hearts daily. We enjoy every minute as Mr. and Mrs. with our daughter and sweet boxer/hound dog, Cassius.

We are both proud to be college graduates (from the University of North Carolina Asheville and Western Carolina University) and are thankful for our education and how it has shaped us. Obviously we LOVE wedding photography (we are in year six of shooting weddings together), and what makes our business work is our love for each other. God has blessed us so much over the years and we are fortunate to use our gift to make a living as wedding photographers.

A few things we love: Jesus, our daughter, traveling, laughing together, watching movies, Avett Brothers, board games, Harry Potter

A few of our favorite places: Paris, Isle of Skye, Scotland, Baltimore, Greece, Cornwall, New Orleans, Savannah, and Asheville (grateful to work, live, & play in this beautiful area)

That’s part of our story, now we want to hear yours! Knowing who you are as a couple is part of the thrill since we’ll be spending time with you on such an important day. As far as your wedding photos, we want you to feel relaxed and confident knowing that we will be working hard to capture brilliant imagery for you. So let’s grab some coffee, chat on the phone, or, heck, let’s just start shooting your awesome love story right now ♥

We are based in North Carolina. We will travel anywhere to document your wedding.
