  • Booking Olivia was one of the best and easiest decisions we made during wedding planning. Although I had very little guidance for her, Olivia understood that I wanted a relaxed feeling to my wedding, and that I was interested in having someone capture moments and conversations rather than stuffy details. Olivia and her second photographer Minh made our venue look even more gorgeous than I knew it could, and they captured the expressions and happy tears of my family on the happiest day of my life. I am so grateful to Olivia and Minh and so incredibly glad they were part of our wedding. I truly can't speak highly enough about Olivia's warm professionalism and beautiful photos, and it's the least I can do to spread the word!

  • I can't speak highly enough of Olivia! She's was so easy to work with and has a great eye. We got out pictures last week and can't get enough. Photographs came out so beautiful, she captured every important moment of the day really well. Her working with a second photographer even for a smaller wedding was such a huge plus as well. Looking at our pictures (only about 6 weeks after our wedding) we can see exactly how the day went! She was very helpful leading up to our big day helping us iron out the timeline and made really good suggestions. The day of the wedding was really dicey weather wise, but she assured us whatever happens, we'll do our best to make it work. And we did, as a result we have ton of beautiful and very natural photos.

  • We can't say enough wonderful things about Olivia. From the moment we met her, we loved her. She was easy to communicate with-responded quickly and thoughtfully. She is friendly, warm, and energetic. She makes you feel at ease-like you're lifelong friends. We used Olivia for engagement and wedding photos. For both, she put us immediately at ease and captured real and intimate moments. Everything felt natural-even the poses she put us in. Leading up to our wedding, Olivia greatly helped us with our day of timeline and was great about making sure it gave time for all of the photos that were important to us. She even helped me (the bride) stay calm throughout the day. We got our wedding photos about 3 weeks after the event and love them. They capture all of the details, emotions, and special moments from that day.

  • Olivia was a JOY to work with. We had not done an engagement session, so I was a little bit nervous about being photographed, but Olivia put me and my husband at ease from start to finish. Her enthusiasm was infectious, and it made me feel so confident and relaxed. What I love about Olivia's pictures are that she captures the ACTUAL wedding- not a staged or over-posed day of wedding photos. Her pictures are clear, crisp, and meaningful. She captured so many of our special moments without us even noticing that pictures were being taken. She was so excited about the pictures, the venue, and the day, that everyone else followed suit, and had the BEST time. I would recommend Olivia to anyone looking for someone to share in and capture the joy and beauty of your wedding day!

  • Olivia is full of energy and really fun to work with. Once the day got started, she "disappeared" taking pictures everywhere but not noticeably. We loved the results.

  • I've read so many horror stories about photographers that I did not want to take a chance on my wedding. So when it came time for me to be married this past fall, I did a lot of research and had the talented Olivia Jacob do my photography. I emailed her to check her availability and she responded within minutes. In fact, all of my communications were promptly returned. We set up a time to meet and the meeting went so well. She was very easy to talk to and both my fiancé and I felt really comfortable around her. When we met other photographers we did not get the same kind of comfortable feeling. Olivia also helped us through the planning process. She explained that if we wanted X number of portraits, then we needed to allot a certain amount of time. This helped us with creating our timeline. During the wedding, Olivia and her assistant were so great. They took beautiful pictures of everything and interacted with my humongous family with ease and made everyone laugh. They were re...

  • My husband and I reached out to Olivia because we loved the geninue, documentary-style photos on her website, and I'm so happy we did! Olivia was easy to work with, responsive, and I really appreciated her attention to detail. She made sure everyone looked their best in our portraits. We didn't really give Olivia a lot of "must have" photos other than the first look and formal family/wedding party portraits, but she clearly knew what she was doing. The day of wedding her and her wonderful assistant Minh took so many pictures but at the same time never got in the way of anything or anyone. Her work truly captured our wedding perfectly. These photos surpassed our expectations. We absolutely love them! We will cherish these photos and they will always be a part of our home.

  • I reached out to Olivia because I liked the photos she had on her website; they weren't just beautifully composed, but they conveyed all of the warmth and joy that I wanted a photographer to document at our wedding reception. Olivia and her assistant did just that. I feel the happiness of our event when I look a them. Olivia began by making all of our family members feel at ease when she took our group portraits. She knew the venue well and selected a room with beautiful light, and she waited until the light was just right to take some shots of us outdoors. During the evening she captured lovely moments that we missed, portraits of couples, and a variety of shots from perspectives only a talented photographer would think of. On top of everything, Olivia was very easy to work with. I would recommend her in a heartbeat and think she could charge a lot more than she does for the quality of her photos and her professionalism.

  • Olivia went above and beyond! She knew the photos I wanted before I knew I wanted them. And I simply love my wedding photos. They are bright and beautiful and full of emotion. And she is so fun to work with, definitely not just another vendor, but a real friend and someone you can trust. When a drunk guest grabbed her camera and broke part of it, Olivia responded with grace, got her back up equipment and kept shooting. I heard about it from the guest. She never complained to me and no photos were compromised. That kind of professionalism is so appreciated during a hectic wedding. I can't thank her enough and whole heartedly recommend her.

  • Olivia was wonderful throughout our entire wedding process. She made me feel very comfortable, listened to what I wanted, and responded quickly to any questions or concerns. On our wedding day she and her second photographer arrived early. She was patient with our large family and gave great guidance without being obtrusive. Our pictures are beautiful and natural and really captured the feeling of our day. We had all of our pictures within two weeks which seemed really fast. I would definitely recommend Olivia to anyone!

  • We hired Olivia to shoot our wedding weekend and she did a fantastic job. We had a three day wedding weekend with a celebration Friday night, a traditional Sikh wedding on Saturday, and an American style reception on Sunday. These were three very different events in completely different venues. The timing was strange (Friday was late at night, Saturday was early in the morning) and the spaces were widely different. Olivia was amazing. She and her partner Minh were able to work with our schedule and capture everything that we wanted. She was so helpful in setting up shots and herding the guests into good positions, all while having a huge smile on her face. She loves her job and it shows. The positive attitude helped to keep us on track and happy even when we were being pulled by all of our guests to take photos. Olivia had helped us prepare for this and had us create a shot list to be sure that we got all of the groupings of people in our photos. she set forth a time limit, w... Read more

  • I cannot praise Olivia’s talent and professionalism enough! We had met with a number of other photographers before finally finding Olivia. As soon as I met her, I was blown away. She put me completely at ease and I knew then everything was going to be great. I knew she was talented – that was obvious from her website – and her style and approach were exactly what my husband (fiancé at the time) were looking for. We also had her shoot our engagement photos. You should understand, we aren’t exactly a couple that likes having our photo taken, in fact, we are quite the opposite, but Olivia made the entire experience so much fun that the time flew by and the photos turned out beautifully. After the engagement shoot we knew the wedding day was going to be a breeze but there were two other factors that really set Olivia apart. One - wrangling our large family. Olivia took charge of the situation and did it all with a grace that put a natural smile on everyone’s face. Two... Read more

  • Olivia was so great! Our engagement photos turned out beautifully! We had our pictures taken at an amazing park in DC and then with our dog. She made us feel comfortable and the poses were not awkward! She was super quick in providing us our pics (gave us a sample that evening and a week later all the photos!). I would highly recommend hiring Olivia Jacob for any of your photography needs.

  • Olivia was amazing!!! From the beginning she was very responsive to all of my emails (even when I sent three in one day)!! We talked on the phone first and she listened to all of my worries and wishes for our wedding day! It was very helpful that she asked me to give her important moments that were above the rest on the day of. With my dad being sick I wanted to make sure all opportunities I had with him were captured and they were!! I have looked at my photos everyday since my wedding and still smile/cry! Great work and very passionate about her job!
