Erica + Brandon’s Wedding- Suzanna- Brides Mum
“I have told many friends how very special you were for us. First surprise is that you are young like Erica! But that you were so professional and unobtrusive. Invisible! On a day when tension may be high, you contributed to the calmness and realness of the day. The REAL surprise was when we saw the actual pictures and were so blown away by how you captured the moments. Even the staged pictures looked so natural. I feel that the one’s of Melanie and Tara alone are of another age. The look of them reminds me of the ’40s somehow. Also the peek at them behind the iron gate discovering something funny makes me feel like I’m looking in on a “secret” moment. The whole party walking along University is also nostalgic in feel. The naughty smirk on Erica’s face as her husband kisses her, and the tilting back with arm carelessly hanging down, while being kissed are wonderful. So many of our friends who has seen them, even this past summer, have said they are the most beautiful wedding pictures they have ever seen. I’m so glad you captured intimate moments of Erica with her dad. She looks so natural and happy. The pictures of eye to eye contact with Brandon and Erica on that day show how much they were enjoying that day. Thank you, thank you, thank you Jessica. I believe in these pictures alone, that this bride and groom will have felt you’ve delivered in spades what they hoped to enjoy from your work.”

There are a few types of photographers, there are some that have a passion for it, others just a natural talent, then theres Jess… She’s both. Her talent shines through in the way she effortless frames shots beautifully, not by staging, but catching natural moments as they happen. That makes for great memories. Her passion creates an atmosphere that can even make two people like us (who aren’t big fans of being in pictures at all) cherish not only the shots, but the memory of the shoot. So if you are “hmming and hawing” about whether or not to choose Jessica, the answer is simple. Do it. She’ll take anything you throw at her (like a near sailboat capsize) and turn it into.. well.. magic. Not sorcery, just devicfoto magic.

“They say a picture is worth a thousand words.. When it came to our wedding day, we wanted nothing less. We wanted to have every emotion and feeling captured for the rest of our lives.
You made it so easy for us to be comfortable just being ‘us’ around you. And you always came up with the most brilliant ideas that turned out so beautifully! On a day that can be so stressful, you were the least stressful part of it all; we were so confident in your work and we were far from disappointed! We are recommending you to everyone we know. We had a blast with you! You are the best. We love you so much Jessica!”

“Jessica, it was with much anticipation that leading up to our wedding we we’re looking forward as to how the pictures would turn out. Not that we doubted your talent but rather were anxious to see how it would show through on our slightly different wedding day. How happy we were as soon we saw those first few shots on your website of the wedding, it was just what we had imagined and more. Thank you as well for receiving our ideas with excitement, improving on them with your professional experience and creative flair and finally delivering outstanding shots. It was a pleasure working with you on the big day, you were so adaptable, keenly present without being even slightly obtrusive, guided us and our guests very well throughout the day and added to the overall enjoyment of our wedding day. We will definitely recommend you to friends and acquaintances who wish to have a similar outstanding experience.”

“I am so incredibly thrilled with both my engagement and wedding photos from Devicfotos! She captured so many moments on my wedding day that I find so many other photographers miss. That is what makes her work so special. And shes a sneaky one! She captured tons of special memories from my big day that I didn’t even know she took. Looking back at those pictures now it really makes me remember how I felt on my wedding day, so happy and in love! Every photo she takes is a piece of art. I can truthfully say I have been beyond happy with every one of the hundreds of photos I have seen from her. She is the only photographer I would recommend!”

“We feel we cannot thank you enough for the time and effort you have put forth in regards to our wedding photographs. With all the stress of sorting out the wedding day to make it go just right the last thing we would need would be any additional problems. But with you we definitely had no issues. Infact you helped everything to come together. It is a big stress relief knowing that you are in control with your organization and direction amongst other skills while working alongside our wedding party and family. With your help our winter wedding turned out amazing. Thank you for suggesting the locations that would be most ideal for photographs. The artisic way you capture your photographs is why we did choose Devicfotos and you did not let us down. Sincerely thank you for being part of our day and we would be delighted for you to use us as a reference for any future clients.”

“I absolutely love looking at our wedding photos. I look at them all of the time. Jessica seriously did such an amazing job that every time I look I am reminded how they are absolutely perfect for us. We will be so happy with them for the rest of our lives. The typical thing you hear people say about their wedding is t they regret their wedding photographer they chose & the results of their pictures. I was determined to not be one of those couples who say they regret choosing their wedding photographer. I did a good job. Or I should more so say, Jessica did an amazing job.”

“Brent and I were looking for a photographer who would preserve our memories in a way that made them look like they’d been our memories for years already, in that vintage way I loved. We were looking for a personality to make us feel comfortable so we could open up to the camera. Jessica was not only the kind of person that would make you open up and feel comfortable with the camera, she knew exactly when to “disappear” and be inconspicuous.
Our pictures turned out perfect. She was professional, lovely, punctual, available, fun, and most of all, talented.
You wouldn’t be disappointed making Devic Fotos your choice.”

“Having Dzesika with us on our wedding day just made it all the more joyful. We had a fairly non-traditional wedding (bride in a party dress, no cake, cocktail reception at an art gallery, no speeches, being our own DJs) and wanted the photos to reflect, well, us! We’re a bit kooky. So when we talked to her about it, she seemed really excited. She scouted out locations around the city with expert foresight as to what we were looking for,and on the day of, we had a blast with her! She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, despite the fact that we were a bit nervous. She had great suggestions for poses and combinations, and when we all piled in a van and drove around Toronto to cool (and free!) places that she picked out, we were more than excited.Throughout the afternoon Dzesika kept finding unique spots along the way, and she’d say, “Guys just stand infront of this brick wall! This will look so cool!” Or “Hold on, I need a photo of the girls jaywalking.” It made for an awesome picture. Safety first, though, kids.One of our favourite parts of the entire experience was being able to sit down and look at some of ourpictures over dinner together the same evening. The wedding party went to a cheapy restaurant that my new husband and I had frequented on dates, and we were able to pore over the Polaroids we’d posed for all day. It was so great! We were so excited to see how the documentation of our wonderful wedding day was turning out. Later, once we made our way to the reception, Dzesika even passed the Polaroid camera around the crowd a little to let others have a go at it. We found the kids took the coolest shots – the became some of our favourite photos of the day. Overall, she made it so easy. And she made us look fantastic! I still have people telling us how we have some of the most unique and interesting and, well, good-looking wedding photos they’ve seen. I blame Dzesika ENTIRELY. As a bride, Dzesika made me feel special and photogenic. She is an absolute pleasure to work with. I recommend her wholeheartedly. She has a wonderful talent for capturing moments and making them sparkle.”

“I have strong confidence in expressing my undying gratitude for the dedication and astounding effort on such short notice that Lady Devic (respectably Fizor) put into our day. Justin and I left a lot of things to the last minute, like getting our wedding photographer. We both knew of Jessica’s phenomenal skill she possessed for wedding photos, and we had always consider her to be our photographer. Justin and I met with Devic one evening shortly after just to go over the details of what we wanted. Everything went smoothly and we had full confidence in what was planned. At the ceremony Jessica came to me asking where I’d be walking down after the vows. I had no idea. To be honest I can’t even recall if I did give her an answer. There was no need for an answer though, Lady Devic just knew exactly where to be at each moment. After the ceremony, we took Jessica and the rest of our bridal party to the bridge where Justin and I wanted to take pictures outside. It being 5pm now the sun was fading fast,Jessica had little time to work in the -15C weather. In thirty minutes we were able to get amazing shots on the bridge- these are my most favorite from the whole day. For the rest of the night at the rowing club, Jessica slipped in and out pulling Justin and I aside to take photos with family and friends at the bar or near the fireplace. For the evening being spontaneous and with ridged plans, Jessica Devic did a beautiful job with what little detail we gave her. Six months later when Justin and I received all our pictures from her, we were touched by the memories she was able to capture in such short period of time that day. We couldn’t have asked for better to remember November 21st 2010 by.
So here’s to you Jessica Devic, and what you can do with your little black camera.”
