My 17-year-old went to Jay for his senior yearbook portrait. He came back full of praise for Jay and mentioned at least half a dozen times that he had enjoyed the session and how nice Jay was. When we received the proofs the very next day, I was impressed by the way Jay had captured my son's moods in every shot--and my son is moody. Jay's photography makes my son look classy, relaxed, and friendly. I cannot say enough about the quality of Jay's work and his quick delivery. Thank you Jay! I'm next for my portrait to be taken by you. Can't wait!Oct 3, 2018VerifiedJay Billups Creative Media's reply

Hello Katie! Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience with jbCM. It was a pleasure working you both.
I am a Realtor and worked with Jay to get professional photos. I am naturally awkward and uncomfortable in front of a camera, but he made it as painless as possible and the photos came out great! I would definitely use him again and would highly recommend him as well. Thanks Jay!Jan 26, 2018VerifiedJay Billups Creative Media's reply

Jay is a creative genius. I always check with Jay first on ALL things creative, (i.e., website, print material, video, photography, etc.). His insight is amazing and you can trust the quality of his work and his fair pricing.Oct 2, 2017
Jay was great to work with. He responded promptly to my messages and was easy to work with. The pictures he took were great and my niece loved them. He worked within the timeline that we were given. Thanks for the great job.Nov 8, 2018VerifiedJay Billups Creative Media's reply
