Jessica Nazarova



The Reviews Are in...


“Hands-down Jessica was my favorite person to work with through the whole wedding process. This is saying something because we worked with a lot of amazing people. The moments she captured are priceless - the whole wedding day was a whirlwind and it was so nice to see pictures of moments that I had no idea happened.

After all of the pomp and circumstance, we wanted a big dance party and Jessica was out on the dance floor the entire time! We got some of the best candid photos! Everyone commented that she is one of the best photographers they have ever seen. We received so many compliments from guests about how genuinely nice Jessica and her team were. She captured such an important part of our life so perfectly and she was an absolutely joy to work with!"

Booking a photographer was by far the most stressful decision I made while planning my wedding. I probably interviewed 15 photographers and took about 3 months to make a decision because I couldn't decide. I can honestly say I made the best choice by picking Jessica! She is not only an amazing photographer, but she's an amazing human being.

My husband and I genuinely enjoyed hanging out with her during our engagement photos and at our wedding. So many of our guests said how great she was and this was before they even saw the incredible pictures she took.

I was initially blown away by our engagement photos, which we did on the national mall and I didn't think our wedding pictures would ever match it, but they did. Jessica literally captured everything at our wedding!! We also had a second shooter there who was wonderful (shout out to Eric, AKA E$ - totally recommend asking Jessica to book him as her second shooter!!). They were such a fun pair and were up in every special moment without being intrusive.

At the end of the night the band was packing up and Jessica had already surpassed her contracted hours. She came to say goodbye to my husband and I and was packing up. The band turned on some songs on the speakers while they packed up and all the guests went wild, put my husband and I back up on chairs and lifted us around the room. Jessica was almost out the door and ran right back to capture the moment. She LITERALLY cannot miss a good time. She was by no means still scheduled to work or obligated to unpack her cameras and take more pictures, but she did. This really describes what you get when you hire Jessica. She goes above and beyond for her couples to make sure she captures every magical moment.

I can't recommend her enough she is wonderful!!! Thank you Jessica!!!

“My wife and I worked with Jessica to photograph our wedding, our rehearsal dinner, and our “getting ready" shots. Jessica was fantastic in every way. She was extremely responsive, and met with us before finalizing the contract to make sure that we were a good match, and we really enjoyed the chance to speak to her about our style, our wishes, and her photographing preferences.

The photos that she took during the wedding were wonderful. She captured all the most important moments, and other moments we didn't know were happening until we saw the photos. The quality of the pictures, the lighting, the editing.... it was all fantastic. She was personable, friendly, and very professional, and we loved that in candid photos taken by our guests, we could see that Jessica was smiling behind her camera while photographing us walking down the aisle and was actually feeling what an important day this was to us.

Lastly, as a same-sex couple, we highly recommend working with Jess, as she treated us just like any other couple getting married, and helped to make our wedding a wonderful day with many wonderful photos to remember it. In short, we wish we could hire Jess for every important life event, because working with her was a true pleasure."

“Words cannot begin to describe how Jessica made my day so amazing! Working with her leading to the wedding was so easy. She listened to what I was thinking and gave feedback and her professional suggestions. We even shared a Pinterest board!

On the day of, she worked around all of the issues including late makeup times, altered ceremony locations, etc. She even acted as the onsite security when bystanders were being loud, lol. She was amazing and I can honestly say we loved every single picture. She captured the day perfectly. You looked at the pictures and even if you weren't there, you felt like you were.

Jessica is a gem and I promise all other brides she is the best decision you can make to capture your day."

5 stars truly isn't enough. Jessica deserves *ALL* the stars! From the first email correspondence and phone call, I knew Jessica was going to be the perfect photographer for our big day. Not only was her storytelling style exactly what we were looking for, but her personality just fit well with us.

Over the year of wedding planning before the wedding, I turned to Jessica multiple times, not only for photography questions, but also for general wedding advice. I am the first of my friends and family to get married and really didn't know what I was doing. She answered all my questions (and there were many) without judgment and provided vendor recommendations as well as advice.

On the day of the wedding, Jessica was on time and immediately started capturing the details of the day. We also had a second shooter, Stephanie, for a few hours, who worked mostly with the guys. My husband said she was very kind and professional as well. At the reception, Jessica was all over the dance floor with us -- she's mastered multitasking of dancing and photographing :)

The day after the wedding (yes, the very next day), Jessica sent us the link to our sneak peek gallery -- which wasn't a sneak peek at all. There were over 75 photos! The day after the wedding!! Amazing. It's almost sad to think that we're now done working with Jessica. She truly was a dream vendor. If you're looking for a personable, professional photographer to capture the true feelings and emotions of your big day, do yourself a favor and contact Jess! :)

“What can I say about Jessica?!?! She is absolutely AMAZING! We hired her for our engagement session while I was living in Georgia and had to start planning my wedding (husband was at boot camp). I didn't know where to start but Jessica was so helpful with ideas about flowers, DJ's and literally ANYTHING I asked her about. I knew right away that she was going to be amazing. I LOVE pictures and this was the most important thing for me on my wedding day.

Once we moved up to the DC area, we set up our engagement session and took Jessica's advice about having the session in Old Town. I was really nervous because my husband is not a big picture guy and we are probably the most giggly couple she ever took pictures of but literally EVERY SINGLE PICTURE was beautiful! The pictures were so us and we loved her style. Simple and using nature to enhance every picture, which I love! She was easy to work with and told us exactly what to do, which we were nervous about. When we got the engagement pictures, I was so excited for our wedding day!

When our day arrived, she texted beforehand and asked if we needed anything. We needed an item and of course she got it for us! Again, amazing! She was like a super hero on our wedding day. She was snapping pictures left and right and both of my parents commented on how she made my husband and I the center of every picture without feeling like she was in our face. When we got the pictures from our wedding, there were 400 more than she originally promised us which was AMAZING! I want to print all of them! If you're looking for a photographer, this is your girl. She's amazing and delivers beautiful pictures!"

“I don't know where to begin this review. All I can say is that I could not have imagined booking a more professional, sweet, talented, and well-seasoned photographer for the most important day of my life. Jessica served as more than just my picture taker... she literally hung by my side all night and was super attentive and helpful. She felt like a member of the family hanging out with me and we all had a blast with her.

There's some key factors you'd want to consider when booking someone to capture the moments spent on your wedding day. To me, the most important thing was that I was comfortable and everyone I love was included in my memories for years to come! We were all extremely impressed with Jessica's adaptability, keen instinct, and natural art for what she does. She handled a very busy, stressful event and made it fun and exciting.

This girl worked her toosh off. We are absolutely thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with her, and we would recommend her time and time again. With Jessica, you get the quality and experience you deserve on your wedding day."

Where do I begin?! Jessica is simply an amazing photographer (amazing probably isn’t even the best word to describe her). Jessica took our engagement and wedding photos.

From our first phone call a year ago, to our wedding day on September 30th Jessica was full of tons of advice, checked in with us regularly and was super responsive to emails! My now husband and I had never taken professional photos, but Jessica was able to make us feel at ease and take some of the most beautiful pictures of us that truly captured our love story. When we received our engagement photos they were so amazing and we could not wait for Jessica to capture our wedding.

Come September, Jessica seemed more like a family member than “just” a wedding photographer. She was able to capture every special moment, and understood overall what was important to my husband and I! Every photo we received from our wedding”sneak peak” was breathtaking and far exceeded our expectations. If you are looking for a photographer that goes the extra mile and is invested in her couples, look no further! Trust me you will not be disappointed!

“I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jessica...She is the best photographer. She seriously goes above and beyond for you. She ended up doing two engagement photo shoots for my husband and I, she offered some unique thoughts for us to use at our wedding, she was willing to help out with any last minute things that needed to be done the day of the wedding, she takes AMAZING photos. Jessica truly captured our love at our wedding. The photos are breath taking...and this is coming from me- a picky person who didn't think she was photogenic... hence the two engagement photo shoots.

Aside from Jessica's gorgeous photos and photography skills her personality is very calm, down to earth, and sweet. Jessica is super nice and friendly, very easy to work with, professional, and willing to go above and beyond for you.

At our wedding Jessica made sure to give her thoughts about when/where to take photos with the different lighting outside, she made sure to tell us, "hey we should go do this soon!" but was not pushy about it. She made sure not to just capture our moments at the wedding but many great moments of our guests, which I loved seeing.

I am so thankful I found Jessica and that she photographed our wedding. Seriously go with her....You will not regret it. There is no one better than her!"

“Jessica shot both our engagement and wedding photos. She was very flexible with our schedules, responded promptly to emails, and was amazing on our wedding day.

Our engagement shoot was after a big blizzard and we shot in about 3 feet of snow for most of the day. Jessica surprised us with hot coffee, muffins, and was right there in the deep snow with us. Jessica goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and appreciated during your special day. Her attention and dedication are worth every penny. She truly is a great person and photographer. She captures the small details and special moments. We received our pictures quickly and in both online and thumb drive form.

Our family and friends can't stop raving about how nice the pictures are. We would 100% use Jessica again and recommend her services!"
