Hey! I'm Olivia :)
I got my start 6 years ago as a hobbyist whose focus was on nature and wildlife photography (and my infant daughter!)
I started a small business called Olivia Rodriguez Photography (check it out here!) in order to showcase my work and make it available for sale, both online and in person. I did this for a few years before I was eventually persuaded by a friend to expand my business to include people! However, I already had an “Olivia Rodriguez Photography” so I knew this new venture needed it’s own identity…thus, Fifth Element Photography was born!
Since the very start, I knew I couldn't do it like everyone else. I needed to put myself in my client's shoes. I realized photography is an investment for folks that suffers from some serious shortcomings. It's uncomfortable. It's intimidating. A stranger tells you how to hold your chin and you pretend you don't look as awkward as you feel. You only get so much time with your photographer and it’s ticking away, making you feel rushed and tense. You find a great photographer only to realize you can’t afford them. Or, maybe you do find one you can afford, but you receive less than professional quality work.

Fifth Element Photography is dedicated to redefining the professional photography experience!
Our number one goal is to capture your special moments...documenting them so that they last a lifetime.
+ My standard sessions do not have a strict time restraint. We will make sure that you are feeling good about what we've got before we head home. Photography should be a fun, relaxed experience!
+ I offer flexible, customized payment plans should you need it and accept a HUGE variety of payment methods.
+ Lets grab a cup of coffee (or whatever beverage you prefer) and get to know each other! For first time clients, I offer and encourage meeting up in person to discuss your session and address any and all questions you may have. This is a great opportunity to get to know each other in a laid back setting before we meet up for your shoot. That means less stress and awkwardness for you on the day of the shoot (and great images)!
