Olivia Rae James

Olivia Rae James began taking photos as a college student in Charleston, starry-eyed and inspired in her new city. Eager to share her new routines with family back home, she fell in love with photography as a way of archiving personal moments.

After years of focusing on lifestyle and editorial photography she fell into weddings, which allowed her to document the innate beauty of the day without overthinking it. With a decade of experience in the industry, she approaches wedding days free of expectations, inspired by natural light and real moments. The end result is warm, soulful images that feel timeless. 

Her work has been featured in VOGUE, and she has been recognized by Harper’s BAZAAR, Over The Moon and BRIDES Magazine as a top wedding photographer in the world. She lives in Charleston with her husband and daughter.
