BEHIND THE NAME
the story of olive & pearl
People often ask us about the meaning behind our name. The simple answer is that Olive Green and Pearl White are the
official colors of our sorority, Kappa Delta, where we met in 2004. But to us, Olive & Pearl is so much more than that.
When we met we hit it off right away, discovering that we had a lot of experiences and interests in common. Additionally, we each accepted leadership roles within Kappa Delta and frequently found ourselves working together on projects and events. We aimed to do our very best in every endeavor, learning in the process that we could achieve so much more as a team than we ever could as individuals. Those experiences helped us grow and become more confident, better versions of ourselves. Fast forward to more than a decade later, and these statements still ring true today! In 2017 we decided to combine our individual photography businesses in order to create the best possible experience for our clients.
For us, “Olive & Pearl” evokes passion. It’s about combining the gifts that the Lord has given us to bring joy to others. It means friendship, teamwork, hard work, and determination. It’s constantly pushing each other to be the best photographers, business owners, and women we can be. It’s late nights and laughing ’til it hurts and road trips and fun. But more than anything, it’s about building a relationship with our clients in order to help them feel confident and preserve those sweet and cherished seasons of life that are so fleeting.
