We are Olivia (brunette) and Sarah (blonde); we're best friends, adventure buddies and photographers who are passionate about capturing authentic connection between you and your people! We love a good adventure  - tag in the forest, beers up a mountain and dancing along the beach (even when it's raining!) Or being welcomed into your homes so you can cuddle up on the couch with a your favourite snacks. 

A few fun facts about us:

  • We've been friends for over 10 years! We met at dance class when we used to take ballet and jazz.

  • We've been to 7 countries together (8 if you count Canada haha) and look forward to adding to that list.

  • Olivia doesn't like beans, and Sarah doesn't like olives yet somehow we still like each other and named our business after them!

  • If we spend too much time together we start saying the same things at the same time - is telepathy real???

 

We strive to provide a safe, welcoming and respectful environment for everyone. During our sessions we like to keep you moving and give you prompts so you don't feel stiff and posed! We want to showcase the love between you and your partner or your family - from belly laughs to quiet moments just taking each other in. We photograph weddings, couples and families  in Vancouver, BC and beyond. 

hello!

Olivia

It’s me, Olive. In all honesty, only a few select people call me Olive (but almost everyone else calls me Liv instead of Olivia). I’m an elementary school teacher by day, passionate about Inquiry based education, specifically focusing on the middle years. I’m a North Shore girl, born and raised, and although travelling the world is one of my favourite things to do, Vancouver will always be home. When I’m not at school, or taking photos with my partner in crime, you can usually find me baking a new recipe (usually some sort of cookies, but most recently experimenting with Sourdough bread), or watching The Office for the 9th time through (not even kidding. The obsession is real).

 

  •  I have been skiing since I was 5 years old. I love spending as much time in Whistler as possible during the winter. I think that snow is so magical

  • I am the QUEEN of starting projects and never finishing. I love to go all in on whatever I’m doing, but usually burn out before I finish (eg. My crocheted bralette business, desire to become a pro piano player, embroidery obsession, watercolour painting, and calligraphy)

  • Ask to see a picture of my dog. You won’t regret it.

  • If there is a category about The Office at pub trivia night, you want me on your team.

Sarah

Hey! I'm the Bean half of Olive & Bean. My family has called me Bean as long as I can remember and with a name as popular as Sarah you need a good nickname! I grew up and still live on the beautiful North Shore, and I spend many weekends in the forest or at the beach. I definitely have the travel bug (24 countries and counting!) and get a little restless being in the same place for too long. One of my favourite countries I've been to is New Zealand, and next on my list is Iceland! 

  • I love psychological thriller books, anything with a good plot twist and an unreliable narrator.

  • Crime podcasts are also my fave! Except when I’m walking home from the bus stop at night haha

  • I collect mugs, and have such a weakness for ceramics... but don’t like coffee so most of my mugs have plants living in them.

  • 100% a crazy cat lady – I have 2 all the time and sometimes foster kittens with the SPCA. Once there were 10 cats living in my house (no regrets).

  • I have a degree in International Studies and Sustainable Community Development – nothing to do with photography but I still loved it!
