About Ivy & Quartz Photography

Ivy & Quartz Photography

Fine Art & Documentary Wedding Photography

Hi! I'm Nina and I run Ivy & Quartz photography! I shot my first wedding in 2013, but my journey with photography began long before that. When I was about 10 years old, my dad gave me a camera and I quickly became obsessed. My intrigue continued to grow over the years and I went on to earn my BA in Studio Art , Photography, from the University of Virginia. After graduating I worked as a portrait photographer and decided to pursue and earn my MFA in Imaging Arts from the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Having a background in Fine Art has informed the way I photograph everything. I understand and value the importance of sensing the emotions being held around me and what it means to capture those moments. Having knowledge on the history of photography has allowed me to cultivate a deep understanding for what makes an image truly ageless. My photography style walks the line between fine art and documentary. My goal is to freeze not only moments, but feelings in time - to create images that people can look back on decades later and FEEL the love, joy, and every emotion in between.

  • Nina is a joy to work with!

    We're so happy with our decision to work with Ivy & Quartz Photography to capture our wedding memories and we can't recommend Nina enough! She was easy and fun to work with, gave great artistic directions, and took unbelievable photos. She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, resulting in warm, candid, and natural photos that encapsulated our genuine wedding day joy. She was also a pro at wrangling our family (and dog!) for portraits and navigating the day's chaos with ease, never missing a beat. We really appreciated the amount of care Nina took preparing for our wedding-- she provided thoughtful feedback on the wedding timeline and worked seamlessly with our wedding planner. Her professionalism, speed, and skill made her a dream to partner with and we wholeheartedly recommend Ivy & Quartz Photography!

    Ivy & Quartz Photography is the epitome of professionalism and true talent! We are so glad that we had the opportunity to work with Nina to photograph our wedding. The photos turned out even better than we could have ever imagined. Her editing and curating are beyond beautiful and made the moments magazine worthy! Could not recommend her more

    Nina and the Ivy & Quartz Photography team was a dream to work with and we are SO happy with the photos we've gotten so far (haven't gotten our whole wedding photo package back yet but just so excited to rave about her work!). The engagement shoot was an awesome opportunity to get to know Nina and her style as a photographer; the photos were incredible and made me so excited for her to help visually document our wedding day. Day-of, Nina and her team made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera and accommodated our many family photos. I'm in awe of the candids she was able to capture in our sneak peek as well. I truly could not recommend Nina more!!

    My husband and I (and our families) are pleased to give 5 stars to Nina for her professionalism, creativity, and wiliness to give us memories from our day that will last a lifetime. She was knowledgeable about the customs and traditions and reverence required to capture a Catholic mass; she knew how to be sure to capture the moments, without distracting from the importance of the Sacrament. I've been to many weddings where all you see is the photographer, but she was able to get the shot without disturbing the elements of the day. She had such patience and flexibility with our very large families, making sure we completed our shot-list and still had time to enjoy the smaller intimate (less posed) moments together. I was not a bride that had a particularly detailed vision of the shots I wanted, mostly we wanted her to capture the party, the joy, the enjoyment. I would (and have) recommended Nina to friends. She's easy to work with, gives good direction to those brides and grooms (like us) with less creative direction then others. She's very willing to give anything a try (she even got on the ground for us so we could take an upshot of us holding hands, one of my now-favorite pictures of the day). She was reasonable, flexible, and upfront about budget and costs. Nothing was a surprise as far as cost and she turned the photos around in a very timely manner. Absolutely recommend and I hope to be able to use her services for other events in our lives in the future. (Wedding June 10, 2023)
