here's what clients say about rod nasbe:
David & I were just looking through the pictures. Oh, my god! They are so wonderful. You got some perfect family shots. We've never had such great family shots -- ever.
Thank you so much for this. We can't tell you how much this means to us. Thank you.
Thank you for all of the passion, time, and talent that you have given us. I will forever be grateful to have so many wonderful memories captured so beautifully - from the engagement, fittings, wedding, and lots in between.
We can't really express how grateful we are for everything you did to make our wedding photos so spectacular. Your preparation, care, thoughtfulness, hard work all day during the event, and the hours and hours of processing and sorting were truly above and beyond. Thank you so much. We wouldn't have wanted anyone else behind the camera, and you knocked it out of the park.
Thanks so much for taking such wonderful photographs of my family. They turned out better than we had hoped. It's hard to choose just a few for our Christmas cards since there were so many photos I would like to use and now I have the family portrait for our home that I've always wanted. What I wasn't expecting, but what I found to be a nice surprise were those "stolen moment" photos with my daughter and our dog. You captured the happiness and exuberance that they both possess. Lastly, I wanted to thank you for making the photo taking experience relaxing and fun. Thanks again,
Thank you for the pictures. Our house looks so good within the leaves. As soon as I can get down to the pottery factory, I will have them framed. Thank you again, Rod.

You have such a unique perspective and a talent for capturing just the right moment at just the right angle! Some of the close ups you have taken of my nieces are amazingly beautiful. Your ability to elevate family gatherings, sporting events, and even inanimate objects, through your photographs never ceases to amaze. The portraits you have taken of our family are wonderful works of art that we will forever cherish. Thanks for sharing life through your lens with us!
I want to thank you for the wonderful picutres that you took of Simone and Darryl this summer. They are perfect and will be cherished forever by many! I truly enjoy your refreshingly unstaged photos and believe they really capture the moment (and some of the best smiles that I have ever seen on both of them). I actually have my favorite photo hanging in my office and it makes me smile everyday. Thank you so much!!!!!
Rod took pictures of myself and my three children. The kids responded to his calm, easy going approach and were happy to run around a park while he snapped pictures. Rod was very good at capturing candid shots which ended up being some of my favorites - special moments where I was just touching a child or holding a hand ended up looking genuine and intimate. I appreciated how quickly he turned around the pictures and the personal touches he added by changing colors and shades so I could get a feel for different types of pictorial appearances. These photos not only hang in my home but also my parents' home. Everyone compliments them! Thank you truly for doing such a wonderful job. The pictures completely made my new house feel like home! Lots of love,
Thanks again for all you did. The senior protrait session with Brendon was a success in my eyes. I got exactly what I wanted and imagined. I was also very surprised and thrilled when I saw the prints. I can’t wait to frame them and get them on my wall! Our next project… family photos now that my brother is here with his new baby!
We haven't hung any photos yet, because we are renovating our living areas (or soon to be). Once the changes are done, then they will be going up! My two favorites are my family's photo with Mike's bee hives... I think we'll use this as our Christmas card! I love how it captures us with the beauty of nature (the wild raspberry bush blooming in the background) with the beauty Mike is creating through apiary. I also love the profile picture of Caitlyn walking in the yard. Every time I see it, it reminds me of a catalog photo for children's clothing... I was amazed at how you were able to capture her in such a sweet way as she was just being herself. I also really like the photo you captured of "Pop-Pop" and Norma under the honeysuckle. It's sweet and captures the friendship between them. I felt like we were getting a glimpse at a special moment with them! Mike has shared how amazed he was by the photos you've taken that may appear to be "posed" but were actually captured moments. He was impressed by how you could capture the beauty in a moment. We have honestly been so happy that you have been willing to come out to the "Farm" and provide us with memories showcasing the beauty of why we moved there and are so happy to be raising a family there. Thank you again Rod!
Oh my gosh - the pictures are AWESOME!!! Thank you again so much.
Those photos are absolutely stunning. The bride, the location, the family, everything.
Rod took lifestyle portraits of me competing in the 2012 Monticelloman Triathlon. The pictures he took were amazing! The shots he took were not only great quality photographs, but he captured my excitement and feelings throughout the day. Two photographs in particular that I really enjoy are: a black and white photo ot me with my daughter playing in the water prior to the event that captures the joy of the moment, and an amazing shot of me swimming at the start of the race. Rod also has a knack for blending into the event; so many shots were truly the spirit of the event. His photos far exceeded my expectations and were superior to the race events pictures. As one friend says, if you don’t have pictures, it didn’t happen! Thanks, Rod, for helping to make this event live on for me.
The family portraits look GREAT! :)
Our family hired Rod to shoot our fifth daughter's wedding on November 4, 2011. No other photographer from the previous four weddings was able to capture the "moments" as Rod's photos did that day. The pictures he took are touching and memorable. The images he captured of our family and friends are treasured and will be for generations to come. The wedding album was exceptional and told a perfect touching story of Maggie and John's wedding day through his crisp clear pictures. In March 2012, our three-month old granddaughter arrived from California. Rod again captured stunning photography of our infant Ella. The pictures he took are truly worthy of a baby magazine. They have made wonderful gifts for her parents, grandparents, great grandmother, aunts and uncles. Since then Rod worked for us at two granddaughters' sporting events. One event was in Charlottesville, Virginia, at a gymnastic competition. Our 11 year old granddaughter, Katie, competed on the floor, vault, uneven bars, and beam. Rod was unobtrusive to audience and competitors while taking amazing photo's of Katie's competition. Rod also shot our 15 year old granddaughter Abby's junior varsity soccer game in Herndon, Virginia. He was able to capture her fierce competitive determination that day in the action photography he took. It is our pleasure to write this testimony to Rod Nasbe's fine work as a professional photographer.

Thank you Rod for capturing such beautiful pictures of my daughter Ella right after she was born & on her baptism day! You are extremely talented & it is very apparent that you have a passion for photography. You are very detail oriented in your photographs. You truly capture the event that you are photographing from start to finish. Thank you for all the beautiful memories we now have to look back on!!

Rod Nasbe is a true talent! He has an incredible eye for photography and is able to capture the true essence of the moment in such an honest way. We have hired Rod on several occasions including birthdays, baby/wedding showers, family events, and - Most Importantly - our wedding day. He went above and beyond to give us gorgeous photographs of our wedding day that we will cherish forever. Our look book is so simple and yet so stunning, and all the thanks go to Rod. We are so thankful to have Rod as our photographer.
