"Capturing joyful
and authentic

A North Carolina based photographer who has a passion for capturing joyful and authentic moments. I fell in love with photography at a young age and have never stopped taking photos since. 

I have an A.A.S. Degree in Portrait Studio Management and own and operate a studio right outside of Mount Airy, NC. I specialize in Senior and Wedding photography and would love the opportunity to capture your special moments, please inquire below for more information!

"Olivia did our wedding pictures and I can't say enough about this girl. She is patient, personable, and overall awesome. She makes you comfortable to be in front of the camera! We were so thankful to have her shooting our pictures for our special day.

She has a pure talent and wants you to be happy with her work. She'll go to the ends to make that happen. I 100% recommend Olivia Shay Photography."
