Scarlet's Story

My name is Scarlet O’Neill & here is my story. I am a photographer. I am an artist. I am a lover. I am passionate & I stand by my person. I live each day to it’s fullest, fantastically, gracefully, courageously & full of heart. Photography is my way of bringing some sweetness to the world. I am a soundtrack queen. Play me a song and I can tell you what movie it’s from. I eat cookie dough out of the Pillsbury package - by the fridge, door still ajar. I squeal with excitement and sometimes jump up & down from it. I look ten years younger than I am, but feel ten years older. I have been photographing since I could hold a camera. I love taking photographs more than anything else. I love making people smile. I love capturing moments for a lifetime of smiles. I love getting to know the people in front of my camera, through and through. Be good to me and I will give you my heart. I want my images to mean something & I want them to evoke laughter, tears and ear-to-ear deep down inside happiness. I want you to see how beautiful you are, how in love that special someone is with YOU. I believe that every single bride is beautiful. I believe in love at first sight. My style is creative, elegant, quirky, modern & vintage, but beyond anything else- timeless. I love old love stories, new love tales and endless kisses. I will take real photos of you & your loved ones. I will show you things that you may have missed or never known. I love fairy tales, but I double love real stories. I can’t wait to tell yours. I really, really love what I do.

close story

“Kid, you’ll move mountains!” – Dr. Seuss.

Family. They are the people that will love you, even when you aren’t maybe the most loveable. They are the people that have seen you grow, seen the good and the bad. They are the people who have grown with you. They are the people that have been a part of your story and have even maybe been the reason for certain journeys you’ve taken. They are where you get your laugh-snort, your habit of hiding Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in the freezer behind the frozen vegetables for late night snacking, they are where your height comes from, they are where your interest in magic comes from and your maybe not so always appropriately timed jokes. They’ve left fingerprints on your life and they’ve made sure you’ve always had the best journey, no matter the bumps.

What makes my heart the most happy is when I can see how well a family understands each other, pushes each other to discover themselves to the truest point and as parents, allow their children to reach for the stars and even further past that.

This particular family was just that. The Cana’s. They completely brightened my morning and every day after that. They turned our time together into the most fun one could possibly have. I can only imagine this is what their life is like on most days and for that, it makes me smile knowing such happiness exists. They are one lucky bunch to have each other.

Love you, mean it xo

Although it’s been a little chilly out and the plaid & cable knit sweaters are in full force, we’ve decided that we are going to counteract this colder weather and turn up the heat with a saucy boudoir marathon. Although just announced, a few spots are already taken, but more than a few are left and waiting for you. Whether it’s a gift for someone more than a little bit special, or something to time stamp just how fabulous you look at this point in your life, a boudoir photo shoot is a way to really make you feel like you can take on the world. You’ll feel sexier and stronger than Beyoncé, even on her best day ;)

Message me for details. Looking forward to creating some magic with you. x

I think what gets me about love is all the little things that make up that tingly happy feeling inside that literally feels like butterflies fluttering so hard, they might just beat right out of your chest. But what are those little things, you might wonder? It’s a combination of all the humanistic qualities in someone that are adored by their partner. It’s those quirks, those charming little mannerisms and habits.

I’m quite fortunate because my clients are some of the greatest people I’ve ever met and they are constantly teaching me all about love. The stories they share, the secrets they confide and the way they so comfortably act no matter how close or far or weird thing I am doing while photographing them. Every single one of the couples I meet are different and every single one of them pulls on my heart strings in the best possible way.

Brett & Zac are exactly that couple. My excitement for them to wed is through the roof. But, it could also be because I am really excited to spend another day with them.  They have this way to make everything shiny & bright. You can’t help but smile around them. You actually feel total happiness in their presence. Their honest interactions, their care for one another, their banter, their jokes and the way they push the other to be exactly themselves (& love them for it), even if that means dirty sponges in the sink and an always full garbage left for the other to take out. I cannot wait for Saturday, and I hope you are continuing your celebrations of a bottle of champagne every night this week until you two are saying “I do”. Two more sleeps. Love you, mean it xo.

    Scarlett; I want to thank you. I saw these shots before, but your professionalism, efficiency, and smiling face made wedding day a success. You not only executed your job, you went beyond. Can’t wait to see the results. My best wishes and thanks for a job well done.

Today has been a long time coming and I couldn’t be more excited to announce that my online presence is now complete with a beautiful brand new portfolio website. It was so brilliantly created by the designer of my sweet blog, the ever talented Ryan Malmberg at Finch Designs.

Ryan has guided me through this wonderful journey with such amazing understanding of my work and has made sure it was absolutely perfect. The new portfolio site is full of the images that best represent my company and my heart.

Take a little adventure over and play, explore and see just how lucky I am to have worked with such incredible souls as the people I call my clients, even my friends.  I hope you enjoy all the photographs that I’ve been selfishly saving (see.. I didn’t forget about you lovely couples!) for just this day.

Thank you to everyone for all of your support in my work and your belief in what I do. Enjoy some of these frames from my most recent weddings.

Love you, mean it. xo
