CHRYSSO & VOJIN SOSKIC, WEDDING, EAST SUSSEX 2014
"Olivia was incredible. We knew she would be brilliant after our engagement shoot. She made the whole experience fun (despite the rain) and we both felt relaxed. Olivia listened to what we envisioned for our pictures and we were absolutely delighted with them. A few months later, she went above and beyond the call of duty to be a fantastically supportive presence at our wedding. She was friendly and approachable but at the same time, assertive enough to wrangle the excitable relatives! Some of our wedding pictures took place on a beach and unfortunately the weather was against us again. But somehow Olivia used the drama of the weather to produce some really atmospheric and striking images. Olivia captured all the major moments, and the smallest details, so beautifully. She absolutely encapsulated the feeling of the day in her pictures and we can't thank her enough for it."
MELANIE PUDDICK, LITTLE ONES SHOOT, LONDON 2014
"We commissioned Olivia to take photographs of our 6 month-old daughter. At the last minute we also chucked in her 3 year old cousin too. With calm professionalism (and plenty of duck puppetry) Olivia took a fantastic selection of photos from which we could choose. What we particularly love about the photos is Olivia's ability to capture each child's unique personality, even in a baby. These pictures now grace the walls of grannies' homes as well as our own and will serve as a beautiful & permanent reminder of her as a baby, which as any parent will agree, doesn't last for long."
ALICIA FAITH, LITTLE ONES SHOOT, LONDON 2014
"It's quite obvious how talented Olivia is from her portfolio, and with our first baby on the way we knew we had to have Olivia come and take some pictures for us! We booked her in early and when it came to the day we almost postponed as at a week old Darcie was suffering with bad colic and just didn't want to be put down. However, as soon as Olivia arrived with her incredible calming and gentle nature, we were so pleased we didn't cancel.
She had such a wonderful approach with Darcie, it was hard to believe she didn't have children herself, and will make the most amazing yummy mummy. We ended up feeding and changing Darcie several times throughout the shoot and Olivia was so kind and patient, nothing was too much trouble. Alongside some beautiful family photos, we were able to gently put Darcie down to get some shots of just her. With Olivia's expert eye and experience she worked around Darcie to capture some adorable images.
We absolutely adore all the images and will really treasure them for many years to come. And not only do we have such gorgeous photographs, but we were blown away by Olivia's patience, professionalism and experience, and cannot recommend her more highly."
SUSANNAH BARNWELL, WEDDING, KENT 2013
"I was totally sold once I checked out her website and we decided that it was worth splashing out for photos that we will treasure forever. On the day, Olivia worked so hard for us like a little photography ninja; wearing all black she was slipping unnoticed between our guests and really bringing out the best in everything and everyone. Each photo captures the mood of the day in a way I could never have imagined possible."
KELLY HAIL, LITTLE ONES SHOOT, LONDON 2012
"Olivia Shaw is truly talented. The shoot was very relaxed and fun and this comes through in her photos. She captured the youthfulness and energy of my boys brilliantly. There was no artificial or contrived posing but rather a natural flow of expressions and movement. My children are growing up so quickly and she has helped me to record these simple, magical moments beautifully. Her work is captivating and I wholeheartedly recommend her as a photographer."
ZARN BALLENTINE, ALICE IN WEDDINGLAND BLOG 2012
"Where do I begin? You have given us a dream come true with our wedding photos. Never in my imagination could I have dreamt they would be so stunning. Not only are they an absolute true reflection of the day but your ideas, posing and gorgeous personality made us feel right at home in front of the camera. You understood just how to make the day memorable, exciting and true to us! You are an absolute inspiration and your attention to detail impeccable. We now have a legacy; moments in time that tell the story of our day and they are beautiful!!!
I can't thank you enough for the gift you have given us. I still sit, two months on, in absolute wonder at what you achieved for us! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!"
CHARLOTTE BAXTER, LITTLE ONES SHOOT, LONDON 2011
"We used the services of Olivia Shaw to photograph our three children. We always found it hard to capture our youngest, so it was wonderful when the photos arrived and there were lots of brilliant shots of him.
Olivia is great at getting exactly the right moment. She is very easy going and the children responded well to her calm, unimposing nature. We will definitely be using Shaw Shots again soon."
ELLEN & TOM WAINRIGHT-LEE, WEDDING, OXFORD 2010
"Everything about our experience with Olivia as our wedding photographer was a pleasure. From beginning to end she was professional, but so friendly and enjoyable to deal with. On the day itself she was superb, so charming and kind and a calming influence when needed! She managed to get the intimate shots of special moments while at the same time managing to remain completely discreet about her presence. We were thrilled with the photos and we will treasure them forever."
ALEXANDRA AND ROBERT ORFORD, WEDDING, BAKEWELL 2010
"Shaw Shots has given us the ability to re-live our special day over and over. The quality of Olivia's shots are not only technically outstanding, but they capture the sentiment and feeling of our wedding day. We had very specific ideas of what we wanted and she has managed to deliver them all and has even exceeded our expectations to include all the little things that made it our special day. Olivia's personal skills are also outstanding and at no point did we ever feel she was in the way. She had a wonderful way with our guests and we feel like it was a friend who shared our special day with us. We would thoroughly recommend her services."
