From the beginning Olga has been steeped in the arts. Her father Lucian Faur, an accomplished graphic designer and painter, constantly encouraged artistic expression in the house. Her sister, Magda is a concert pianist and considered to be one of the premier pianists in her home country of Romania. From this background Olga was carved into a creative thinker and problem solver. After delving in several art-forms, Olga found her voice as a photojournalist. Seeking social relevance, Olga graduated from the School of Visual Arts in Bucharest, Romania and immediately began her career shooting for the national newspapers.
After starting a family and moving to the US, Olga has concentrated on elevating family and wedding photography. “Art is an abstraction of memories. We remember sweeping movement that triggers sound and smell and the like, and this is how I approach portraits. I try to create a space in which people can express their humanity and then I simply record it through a lens.”
Spanning the last 10 years years, Olga has photographed over 300 weddings. In addition to shooting such a significant number of weddings in the Milwaukee and Chicago area, she has found herself traveling to weddings in Colorado, Florida, New York, Mexico, Puerto Rico, The Dominican Republic, Jamaica, France, Spain and Romania.
Her award winning photographs have been published in magazines such as: Time, Martha Stewart Weddings and the Wisconsin Bride. She has been on several national wedding blogs in US and UK such as Ruffled, Bridal Musing, The Wedding Lady, The Wedding Wire, The Bride Link and The Wedding Community.
To view her work, she invites you to visit her personal website as well as the wedding galleries posted on the blog.
