  • Working with Olivia was such a pleasure. From our first meeting over coffee to our engagement shoot to the actual day of the wedding, Olivia was enthusiastic, organized, and just fun to work with. She has an amazing eye for both classic and creative shots and helped us create beautiful memories that we'll cherish forever. Also, her second shooter Ashley kept the groom's side relaxed and laughing on wedding day and was a true professional, as well. We highly recommend Olivia!

  • Olivia was a fantastic wedding photographer, I cannot say enough about how kind, talented, artistic, and efficient she was. She did both our engagement pictures and wedding pictures, and was very professional and responsive throughout the planning process, even agreeing at the last minute to lengthen the day-of shooting. The pictures could not have turned out better. I told Olivia initially that what attracted me to her pictures was the fact that they were "photojournalistic" rather than heavily edited, posed, trendy shots. Instead, I felt that she captured real emotions and were edited our photos a way that it timeless. She created a perfect mixture of posed shots and candid shots, and captured a lot of genuine emotion on the faces of myself, my husband, and our guests. Logistically, Olivia was also a dream to work with. She patiently herded my giant family into family photos, and didn't belabor the process, which helped keep the day moving. Her second shooters went above and beyo... Read more

  • Olivia photographed our engagement and wedding day this past September 30 2017. She was absolutely amazing in every step of the process. She is professional, kind, and absolutely an amazing photographer. We couldn’t be more happy with the whole process and photos we received. Highly recommend her.

  • I will be recommending Olivia Jacob Photography to anyone and everyone I meet that is getting married or has any reason in the whole world to hire a photographer!! Olivia is the whole package. She is so nice and fun and energetic and passionate. We loved everything about her personality. She was wonderful during our engagement session and so helpful while talking us through poses and making sure that we were having fun. We fell in love with the pictures and knew we had made the right choice after that encounter alone. And then came our wedding day, where she captured every special moment, every emotion, every candid smile and tear. She made the pictures fun and knew exactly what we wanted. To say that we love our wedding pictures is the understatement of the year. I COULD NOT have asked for more beautiful pictures capturing literally everything I could've ever wanted. We cannot stop looking at them and can't wait to print some out and display them around the house. Our families and fri... Read more

  • We could not have selected a better photographer for our daughter's wedding for all the money in the world! Olivia Jacobs was on-site with us all the time, but was so unobtrusive you hardly knew she was there. She took every single picture we requested and so many more! She was creative, artistic, sensitive to our desires, and such a calming pleasure from start to finish. Although the weather was hot, hot, hot, Olivia had the wedding party out in the field and back to the cocktail party in record time! She scouted out the area a good hour in advance, finding the very best scenes, nooks & crannies, and beauty for each photo. I highly recommend this talented photographer to capture your prized moments. You will not be disappointed! Thank you, Olivia, from the bottom of our hearts.

  • From the very beginning Olivia worked with us to plan and execute a perfect day. Her suggestions and expertise were extremely helpful but she always made it clear that it was our day and our prerogative to have it our way. The day of Olivia and her team were professional and helpful, keeping us comfortable and relaxed. Her eye and talent for keeping us loose resulted in absolutely perfect pictures, both posed and candid. During the event, Olivia and her team were nearly invisible but managed to capture everything we could have asked for in stunning fashion. These pictures will no doubt stand the test of time and we could not be more pleased with how they turned out. Highly recommend!!!

  • Olivia was amazing -- easy to work with, flexible, able to answer all my questions and was professional. Our pictures will last us a lifetime and we are so happy with the outcome. I told her exactly what I was looking for and she was able to execute my requests, beyond my wildest dreams. I would recommend working with Olivia to anyone planning a wedding!

  • Olivia was amazing!!! I just received my wedding photographs a little less than three weeks after my wedding and I could not be happier. One of the most important aspects of my wedding was the photographer and having awesome pictures. I researched photographers endlessly. What stood out for me was how she aims to capture the overall emotion and flow of the wedding day. No endless boring portrait photos (although of course we took a couple of those as well to appease family members) but what I really wanted was for her to capture the fun and emotion of the day. She also stepped back and let the moments happen - no forced awkward photos which I really appreciated. She helped guide us during our first look but overall she was very easy going and during the reception I forgot she was there! Could not be happier with her. Thank you!!

  • There are so many flattering things I want to say about Olivia, so I'll have to break it up into sections (but TLDR: she is amazing and I highly recommend booking her before someone else does): PROFESSIONALISM. Olivia is kind, fun, engaged, and very responsive (even when I was not). My husband and I did not have any social media at the time, so we didn’t feel comfortable in front of the camera; Olivia worked with our shyness. She was also open to any suggestions we had. She respected all of our requests, and was gracious in the most hectic times during the day. FLEXIBILITY. We had a ceremony in a cramped church, followed by a backyard reception (except it rained on our wedding day, so most of the reception had to be moved inside the house). None of this fazed Olivia, and she worked with tight spaces and awkward backgrounds to create beautiful pictures. PRESENCE. For our engagement photos, Olivia was patient and helpful as she explained how we should best pose ourselves. She ... Read more

  • I give a whole-hearted, two-thumbs up recommendation for Olivia. Not only is she super friendly while also being extremely professional, the pictures we got from our wedding day are unbelievable (I posted the link to our "photo preview" on Facebook, and people that I haven't spoken to in years came out of the woodwork to comment on what stunning pictures they were). Hire Olivia, and trust in her expertise. For formal (posed) pictures, she has the eye for what will make a great photo, and she can direct you and position you to make that happen. For candid shots, she was taking a million photos all evening, at every turn and every reception event -- which yielded many of my very favorite pictures from the whole night. 100% recommend!!

  • We met with Olivia over a year in advance of our wedding. We knew we were having a very small wedding so we wanted to have a photographer who would be able to capture the tiny moments as well as the big things that we're going on during the day. After looking through about 40 different photographers Olivia was the perfect balance of detail shots, candids and family posed photos. On the day of the wedding she certainly did not disappoint. She even helped to call me down as I was waiting to get married. She captured everything from my mom brushing my hair before the wedding to my sister trying out lipstick to make sure it was the right color for the day. At her second shooter was amazing. Her second shooter stayed with my fiance during the setup of the reception venue and did his groom portraits. During the actual event I hardly noticed that they were there. But when we got the photos back they had captured every single moment and then some. Olivia with a dream to work with and I couldn'... Read more

  • I can't say enough amazing things about Olivia -- she did an incredible job with both our engagement photos and wedding photos. She was incredibly easy to work with throughout the entire process, and was such a calming influence on our wedding day -- sneaking out for sunset photos with Olivia was one of the highlights of the day for us. Olivia has a great eye for composing beautiful photographs and she and her second shooter, Ash, captured so many wonderful candid shots of us and our guests -- I'm in LOVE with all of our photos. I can't imagine having worked with anyone else to capture our wedding day!

  • Olivia is wonderful. She took both our engagement and wedding photos, and we would hire her again for any other photography needs. She's incredibly easy to work with, super accommodating, and her pictures are perfect. For the posed pictures, she's willing to wander into the woods in inappropriate shoes to get the perfect shot. During the ceremony and reception, we didn't notice that she and Ash (her second shooter) were there. Her candid pictures are especially great; she really knows how to capture spontaneous emotion. I can't say enough good things about her.

  • Olivia shot our fall wedding on a farm in Loudoun County, Virginia, and was so helpful and great to work with from the very start. She gave us a lot of great advice on how to plan and execute our shot list, and was incredibly quick and seamless in getting our family and friends shots done before and after the ceremony. But our favorites were the more candid shots, which we had loved about the other work in her portfolio. Olivia and her assistant did such a beautiful job capturing everyone's emotions and expressions, and the beauty of the farm. We were very happy with her work, and would highly recommend her to other couples in the DC area.
