I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Marlene, the photographer behind Olive Shoots Photography. I’ve been shooting engagements, weddings, newborns and families for the past five years from my hometown of Brantford, Ontario, as well as Hamilton, Cambridge, Guelph, Woodstock, and the surrounding communities. I believe that a beautiful photograph is not just a treasured memory; it’s a time-machine that allows us to relive the joy and warmth of that moment for the rest of our lives. I’ve been blessed by the many couples, families and people that allow me to capture the laughter and love, solemnity and stillness of the events that shape who we are—if you’d like to learn more about how I can bring my special touch to your perfect moment, contact me today!
They say word of mouth is the best form of advertising, and I agree! I have met some many wonderful brides & grooms who were referred to me by a friend or loved one. These testimonials give a glimpse into what other couples are saying about Olive Shoots Photography.

"Working with Marlene was a blessing for both our engagement & wedding photos. She is professional in every aspect from her friendly demeanour & great communication skills to her ability to help keep the big day flowing smoothly. The little details of our wedding were captured while still telling the bigger story of our wonderful day. As a couple who don't often have photos taken of us, she made us feel comfortable & we're extremely pleased with the final results!"

"Marlene made Dylan and I so comfortable right away with both our engagement and wedding shoots! She’s kind, super fun and the time flies by without any awkwardness! With a COVID wedding there were changes and ups and downs and Marlene was so good with any changes we made and always willing to meet. I would highly recommend her, our pictures turned out spectacular!"

"It's so clear that Marlene cares deeply about her clients and her craft! Our wedding photos are
stunning. Throughout the process, she was organized and helped us smoothly plan all the photo related details from our first look to the group shots. She adapted with us as our vision and plans grew. Her sense of humor kept our families smiling for all the family photos, and she was so discrete at the ceremony and reception that I did not even notice her taking pictures. She went above and beyond for us..."
