My approach to wedding photography is all about you having a great time and me capturing all of the moments both big and small that made your wedding day so magical. I am after timeless photos - the kind that only get better as you look back at them over the years. My style is candid, fun and natural with a focus on people, love, laughter and real moments.
My wedding photography has been featured on the Huffington Post, Essence Magazine, Offbeat Bride, Bethesda Magazine, Charm City Wed, The Wedding Hub and others.

Jessica did an AMAZING job with our wedding pictures at La Ferme. From the start, Jessica was willing to help Joey and I plan our timeline for our special day. She met us at Starbucks and provided awesome recommendations. She was able to learn about my personality and my husband's personality during our meetings (which definitely showed in the pictures!)Sent on 05/07/2018
Looking back at our photos now, it is almost like we had a videographer. I can now remember my wedding from the beginning to the end!! She is very creative and did a great job executing our first look pictures. She also caught the best moments on camera (like me looking so scared getting lifted in the chair during the hora!)
My mom and I are so excited to work with Jessica to make a photo book. It's going to be tough picking from all the amazing pictures!! Thanks again Jessica!!

We were fortunate enough to work with Jessica earlier this year for our engagement photos. She was responsive and friendly from first contact and we knew right away she was who we wanted to work with. Jessica was really flexible when we were rained out from our photo session and worked with us to quickly reschedule a time that worked for everyone, while still being able to make the sunset time frame work. We ended up with the most perfect afternoon and Jessica went above and beyond to make sure we took advantage of every last minute of golden hour. My husband and I have spent very little time in front of cameras, but Jessica was able to gently guide us, without it feeling forced or overly posed. We had the best time and it felt like we were spending the afternoon with an old friend, rather than someone we had just met. We received our photos shortly after and were thrilled with how they turned out! Jessica takes so much pride in her work and we felt like we were in great hands. We are so glad we were able to work with her and will be recommending her to all of our friends!Sent on 10/23/2018

Selecting Jessica as our photographer was one of the first and best decisions we made during our wedding planning process. On the day you book Jessica you should also add a ton of picture frames to your registry, because picking which of her amazing images to display is almost impossible (and that’s just from our sneak peek, which she delivered the day after our ceremony!). When looking at her portfolio we were excited about the colors and emotions her pictures capture, and our wedding photos reflect exactly that. Even the family portraits reveal personality and moments together we are so grateful that she photographed.Sent on 10/06/2018
What the pictures don’t tell you is how supportive Jessica is through the wedding process. From helping us figure out what lighting to add to a tent reception to recommending a great hair and makeup artist, her expertise extended far beyond the day of our wedding. During a panic about the weather requiring an unplanned indoor ceremony 2 weeks before our wedding, Jessica sent the most reassuring email explaining her game plan if that occured, and with suggestions to maximize the indoor area. We ended up having a beautiful sunny day, but hearing about Jessica’s “flash game” and seeing examples of it in a similar tent definitely allowed us to breath easier.
Jessica is also an amazing professional. On the day of our wedding she was efficient but not brusque when working through the family portraits we requested. We knew that with a later ceremony time we were working with a limited amount of light, and she took advantage of every second. She had not shot at our venue before, and at our request she visited in advance to scope out spots for pictures. She listened to our opinion of what locations around the property we preferred as a backdrop and gave us the right amount of direction to create beautiful pictures without feeling too posed.
We cannot recommend Jessica highly enough, we will look back at her joyful photos often!
Jessica capture the very essence of each couple. Her pictures tell a story and are amazing beautiful. Engaged couples, I highly recommend Jessica Nazarova Photography! She is without a doubt one of the best photographers I have seen and I've done 300+ weddings. Book her now!
