I'm Holly!

Photographer Holly Louwerse

I am a wedding, portrait, and landscape photographer from Clearwater BC Canada. My creative aptitude is fuelled by passion, enthusiasm, and salt & vinegar chips.

I am at my best when I am in my element with an incredible couple who are adventurous, silly, passionate, fun and up for anything….Interactive waterfalls and majestic swimming holes are my favorites!

My best day is a cliche; it starts with tea and ends with a sunset. Ideally sometime in between there would involve a camera, hiking, biking, kayaking, skiing, or swimming … along with some good food. Even better if I don’t actually have to cook the food myself 😉

I am completely inspired by human connection, and photographing the rawest, genuine emotions— messy, ridiculous, and intimate— is the best gift I can ever give.

Whenever I have a camera in my hands I focus on the connection between people and try and capture the real emotion, nothing too staged, but still with some guidance to have everything run smoothly. Every photo-shoot is told as a visual story through my lens from start to finish with all of the in-between moments too! I love working with adventurous couples who want epic photos and aren’t afraid to go on a little journey to get them. Golden hour is my jam and I will happily steal you for a few moments at sunset to create some truly amazing images.

If that sounds like what you are looking for we should definitely talk further!

My favourite places in the whole world, besides my crazy hometown Clearwater, are: Iceland (its just too amazing), Tasmania (the combo mountain and coastal living!), Jordan (one of my most memorable trips with my brother and sister), South America in general is awesome but I am particularly fond of Colombia, Tokyo (so much mental stimulation!), Ireland (dreamy!!), Wales, England and Scotland (shout out to my British Family!).

Places I would die to see and shoot a love story are: Greece, Italy, Zion National Park, San Francisco, Tasmania Australia, India, and Patagonia. If this isn’t a big clue, well then, heck yeah I love to travel and shoot destination weddings!

I am incredibly grateful to have shared, and captured, some of the most important days in people’s lives these past years. Growing up I never thought I would be able to do something I enjoy so much and actually call it a job. So thank you for stopping by, checking out and hopefully admiring my work! I am an open book if you have any questions for me feel free to ask! Then when we meet I will ask an absurd amount of questions to find out about you!
