  • Emily was the photographer for our June wedding in Vienna, VA - and she was amazing! She was very helpful with any questions we had before our wedding and she was super nice and put us at ease throughout the whole process. On the day of our wedding, she seemed to be everywhere at once, capturing every moment of our big day! We couldn't be happier with our choice of a photographer for the most important day of our lives together!

    Sally thank you so much for the sweet review! Your wedding day was so much fun and so full of love, I'm grateful I got to be there to witness it. I hope you two are enjoying your newlywed life together - and if there is anything else I can do to help you two, please let me know!

  • My wife Hsiao-Wei and I hired Emily Ott and Beauty of the Soul Studio for our June 15, 2019 wedding in Vienna, Virginia at the Hunter House. Emily and her staff were incredibly professional, helpful, positive, and took some amazing images at the ceremony and at the outdoor reception. She was only noticeable when needed and even followed up with a second unpaid session at our request the following week to get some photos we missed on that day due to the commotion. Overall, I would highly recommend Beauty of the Soul Studio if you are planning a wedding in the DC metro area. The images she created are now a part of our love story and we are eternally grateful to Emily for her service. Best regards, Paul Alberghine (Groom)

    Paul and Hsiao-Wei, I am so honored to have played a part in your wedding day and your review is the cherry on top. You two were so gracious despite the curveballs thrown on your wedding day and I genuinely loved getting to spend that extra session time with just the two of you shortly afterward! I wish you many years of happy marriage and please know of my prayers for you two and your family.

  • Emily was our photographer for our wedding photoshoot on the National Mall in D.C. She was so great to work with, very easy going and fun, made us very comfortable. She was flexible, creative, and had a plan without being too rigid. She's incredibly responsive and she listens and understands what you want to envision as a couple. Her photos were great, and she did an amazing job editing out a lot of people that were behind us as we were on the mall. Would highly recommend !

    Thank you so much for the kind review, Kristine! I absolutely loved getting to work with you and your family, and the classic DC Mall photos ended up as some of my favorites wedding photos I've taken. Hope life as newlyweds is as sweet as you dreamed!

  • Beauty of the Soul Studio came as a recommendation from a friend of a friend, and Emily was immediately responsive, helpful, and flexible. She worked with our desired budget to offer us a personalized package. We were impressed by the whole process of working with Emily: the resources she brought to our initial meeting, the contract that was detailed but understandable, and the weeks prior to the wedding where she kindly reminded us for shot lists, gave us instructions on her second shooter, etc. The pictures themselves worked for our wedding style which had an outdoor element, smaller guest count, and some historical features that we wanted to highlight. Emily's photography and editing is bright, fun, and captured some truly special moments that we would have otherwise missed! Thank you Emily (and Brittany) for your efforts to highlight the special moments of our wedding day! We would recommend them to any future couple!

    Photographing your wedding was such a lovely experience, Isabel, and I know Brittany and I both thoroughly enjoyed getting to be part of your wedding day! I'm so grateful to have clients like you who inject so much personal meaning into their day - it was a highlight of our wedding season to spend time with you and your families. Thank you for the kind review!

  • Emily was the photographer for my wedding in June of 2019 in Leesburg, Virginia. Finding the right photographer within our budget in the Washington D.C. area was a challenge - until I found Emily! In addition to being a talented photographer, Emily was a great communicator. She is kind-hearted, patient, willing to listen, and all-around easy and joyful to work with. My husband and I did both an engagement shoot and full wedding package with Emily. Neither of us were experienced being in front of the camera, but Emily made it easy. We received the pictures so quickly after both the engagement shoot and wedding, and I cannot fully express how pleased I was with the quality of the photos, the variety, and the naturalness of all the poses! Our wedding was a traditional Catholic Nuptial Mass, so it also meant a lot to us that Emily and her secondary shooter were both incredibly respectful and unobtrusive during the ceremony, while still getting so many great shots in the tiny chapel we w...

  • Emily was recommended to us as a photographer by one of past classmates in college. Emily and I both hail from Marymount University and I honestly knew then that I was making the best decision for a photographer. From the beginning, Emily worked with me as I was long distant and not in the same state as her or the wedding and we had a Skype call. She was easy to talk to and explained everything well. As we got closer to the wedding date, I reached out to Emily multiple times about the photography logistics but also for other things such as videographer recommendations, Bible verse guidance, and other wedding day questions. She went above and beyond to answer my questions and guide me in the right direction. For the week of the wedding, we finalized our logistics and it was just so easy to work with her on making our day go as smoothly as possible. Finally, the day of was a whirlwind (and since my husband and I decided not to do a first look last minute, it was kind of difficult to ke... Read more

  • Emily was AMAZING. She did such a job keeping our rowdy group in line and getting all the money shots that I didn't even know I needed for our intimate elopement. She was timely, professional, organized, and super accommodating. My mother was in a wheelchair and she helped think of cute shots and make the process as least draining as possible on her. I honestly couldn't recommend her enough to couples...when my MIL got the pictures she responded with "THESE ARE GREAT!!!! Emily did a great job in capturing everything and everyone. I feel like I'm reliving it all again. " and I feel like that is the most accurate way of describing our experience!
