Ian Olsson Wedding Photography
An extraordinary childhood growing up in some of the world’s most picture-perfect locales, from Thailand and Turkey to Bahrain and Brunei inspired a spirit of wanderlust in Ian Olsson from an early age. With breath-taking beaches, stunning temples and phenomenal scenery on his doorstep, he began shooting his surroundings on his faithful Minolta camera. And so began a love affair with photography, which has seen him carve out a successful career in the industry and earn a reputation for his creativity, friendliness and professionalism.
Ian became a full-time photographer over a decade ago and loves living in Cambridge with wife Hannah, a BBC journalist, and cute cockapoo puppy, Leo.
Ian has always loved photographing weddings, saying they’re the perfect combination of portraits, action shots, close up details and landscapes, plus everyone is always in such a happy mood! His relaxed, friendly and natural style has led him to photograph over 200 wonderful weddings. You’ll find him quietly in the background capturing all the fun, excitement and emotion.
He knows from his own wedding how much effort goes into all the details and how quickly the day goes by, so it’s a privilege to be able to preserve these memories for couples. Talking of preserving memories, Ian is keen to point out how seriously he takes his backups. After sadly losing everything in a house fire recently, a couple whose wedding he photographed ten years ago got in touch, thinking there was no way he would still have their precious photos. How excellent to say he still had them!
As well as the enjoyment of the day itself, Ian loves receiving feedback from his wedding couples. His photos are often described as ‘fantastic’, ‘beautiful’, and ‘absolutely amazing’.
Ian has photographed weddings all over the UK and Europe, but it’s hard to beat some of the stunning venues we have on our doorstep in Cambridgeshire, from the majestic colleges to rustic DIY tipi weddings on the family farm, and everything in between.
