The Twig & Olive Team
Officially Twig & Olive was born in 2015, linking together Courtney, Doug, and Bobbi, all who were successful family and wedding photographers in Madison, Wisconsin. Don’t let our youthful looks fool you; we all have over a decade of photography and design experience under our belts!
Drawing upon the fact that we are happier when we do things we excel at, we divided and conquered Twig & Olive, each taking on the part of the business that we love and slaying it. Our team-centered focus allows us to work like a well-oiled machine no matter if we’re teaching photographers how to business better or photographing clients in gorgeous locations.
We’re big on experience, whether that’s the experience of travel or the experience our clients have with us before, during, and after we photograph them.
Curating extraordinary experiences and creating art is what we do best, whether it’s here at home in Madison, Wisconsin, or somewhere around the globe.
Bobbi Petersen is the most task-orientated of the group as well as the resident night owl. Her strengths include marketing, saying no to non-essential business purchases, customer service, and creative packaging. Bobbi is also responsible for the coffee surplus at the studio.
Courtney Weittenhiller is our Photoshop and Lightroom guru and baby whisperer. She also keeps our sessions fresh by spending the most money on props, quilts, and other goodies. Courtney is a travel agent by night and is single-handedly responsible for taking care of everyone’s schedule and travel logistics. Although she might not like to admit it, Courtney is the best newborn photographer in Madison, Wisconsin.
Doug Weittenhiller is our tech and gear geek, excelling in knowledge at all things that have a processor or motherboard. He is responsible for the day to day computer and backup operations, getting a solid 9 hours of sleep each night and, most importantly, keeping the studio’s whiskey stock at an appropriate level. Whenever there is extensive travel involved, Doug is the first to get shipped out.
Darcy Dundee came on as our brand manager in 2017 and has been a tremendous asset to the team. She keeps our blog and website active daily and processes every print and product order that comes our way. Darcy is a frequent winner in the Name That Tune game, is our studio peacemaker, and excels at selecting the genre played on Spotify.
