Marcel will do anything to get the right shot! First he positioned our family on the rock, then he started walking to his left to get the best angle. Well, that angle led him to the shore of a lake. So, without hesitating, he removed his shoes and proceeded to wade out into the murky lake up to his knees to get just the right shot. And, we're so glad he did; it was the perfect shot!
John, one very happy customer!
We are so pleased with the care, professionalism and creativity Marcel provided during our family photo session. Marcel prepared for our appointment by visiting our chosen photo location in advance so when we arrived at the park, he was familiar with the park layout and could provide additional pose suggestions. Marcel made our family quickly feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. He carefully took the time to set up each pose, and he was very patient walking around the park taking our pictures at various pre-chosen spots. He used a variety of photography techniques to give the pictures unique and beautiful “looks”. We appreciated and used several of his picture ideas and end product choices. Thank you so much for creating beautiful souvenirs of our family!

My husband Greg and I are so pleased with our family photos. Marcel made us feel at ease immediately and even let us bring our dog to the photo shoot (a sibling to my children). Not only do the photos capture the relationships we have with each other, Marcel was able to bring out our individuality. His photo shoot was fun and artistic and he brought amazing ideas that I would never have thought to create. We had such a hard time choosing which ones to develop for the home portrait, Christmas cards, and family gifts. We are thankful for the photos and memories of a shoot that will last a lifetime.

We had never had professional family photos taken before but always admired professional photos that friends had so it was on our to-do list. When I heard the philosophy of Oliveros Fine Photography, people and their world in motion, I thought this would be a great fit for our family since our two children, 6 years and 18 months, pretty much never stop moving.
Marcel went out of his way to scope out multiple locations and pick the perfect spots for our photo shoot. My expectations were high going into the session based on discussions with Marcel as I could tell he was very detail oriented and planning every aspect to make sure our family’s personality was represented. However, the product of Marcel’s planning, hard work and talent far exceeded my expectations. Marcel truly captured the spirit of our family, especially the fun-loving nature of my kids, and got some amazing action shots of them being themselves and enjoying the day and each other. We will cherish these photos forever and look forward to working with Marcel again in the future.

I came to Marcel with hopes of taking great pictures to share my daughter's first "big girl" hair cut. I wanted pictures that reflect her personality and gave her a current and yesteryear type look. I am really excited about her pictures! Marcel did a fantastic job using light and shadow against different backgrounds to create the look that I was hoping for. I can't find anything that I do not like about the pictures. I also appreciate the way we felt during the shoot. It was fun and relaxed. There was no rush to finish quickly and there were plenty of props available to give the pictures an artistic look and keep things interesting. Every picture came out in perfect focus and exactly how I wanted it. I have recommended Oliveros Fine Photography to several of my friends. Grandma is also happy at last!

It was very simple and seamless working with Marcel when I needed photographs to capture my daughter's ballet progress. He was gracious, accommodating and thoughtful with appropriate posing and selections of the finished product. I highly recommend him for his professionalism and quick turnaround time.
