Hey, I'm Olivia!

PERSONAL BIO

I'm a portrait photographer based out of NYC specializing in senior, couples, and lifestyle photography.

This May I'll be graduating from New York University with a major in marketing and double minors in photography and MCC (media, culture, & communications).

When I'm not behind my camera you can find me watching Gossip Girl and The Bachelor, searching all of NYC for the best rooftop views, and (probably) eating sushi :)

It all started my sophomore year of high school...

As a bored fourteen-year-old, I found a playlist of behind-the-scenes photography videos on Youtube and thought 'I could do this!' So, I joined the school newspaper, picked up my first camera, and started shooting (literally) any and everything I could. 


My friends and classmates became my first models and, within a few years, I was shooting styled editorials, weddings, and (my personal favorite) graduation photos.


In 2016 I traveled to Australia for three weeks as part of a National Geographic High School Expedition. In 2017 I visited Cuba and had my portraits and street photography featured in Artful Living magazine.


During the pandemic, I've continued to take photography courses at NYU (even turning my apartment into a studio a couple of times) and resume client photoshoots following COVID-19 safety protocol. Additionally, I have assisted wedding photographers in the tristate area through second shooting.


Now I'm 21, about to graduate, and I have learned so many valuable artistic and professional lessons over the past seven years as a freelance photographer. The one constant has been my love and passion for creating portraits.


I am always looking to take on new projects, so please don't hesitate to reach out via the contact form or directly at hello@oliviacrutchfield.com.


So many things become beautiful once you really look
