Who We Are

Preservation Scans is in the business of preserving memories; especially those captured with a camera. We specialize in scanning and converting photographic and other materials into digital files, as well giving new life to old images that have been damaged or discolored.

The company was founded and is operated by Steven Nestler, a prominent photographer with a background as a museum curator and college professor. We are photography professionals who lovingly and skillfully work with each image to ensure  it is beautifully restored.  With a background of several years of experience, we offer excellent  customer service and guaranteed satisfaction.

We love what we do. and it shows in our finished work.We’re an owner-operated company, and all work is performed in our Charlottesville, Virginia facility, enabling us to maintain our quality and safety standards.
