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, 2018VerifiedjbCM Photo & Video'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, 2018VerifiedjbCM Photo & Video's reply
Samantha, thank you very much. Looking forward to working with you again! Cheers, Jay
I met Jay at a career conference back in September and he was one of the first stops I made. He does great work and he could not be nicer. I use his photos to this day. Thanks!Nov 26, 2019Review from GooglejbCM Photo & Video's reply
Charlie, thank you, it was a pleasure working with you. We strive to make our customers' experience pleasant and easy.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Why are we so affordable? We get questions like this all of the time, especially when it comes to weddings. People typically expect to have to pay high prices when it comes to media production. While great quality media production does take time and expertise, it isn't a license to extort. At jbCM we're in business for the long haul. We prioritize creating long term, professional relationships with our clients over short term gains. Photography and video production are just two of the services we provide and we price them just like everything else we do ... determine the cost to perform a service (resources, payroll, time, travel, equipment, etc) and compute necessary profit for continued company growth - pretty simple. Services providers have gotten in the habit of charging way more for weddings because of the significance of the day and our society has accepted it. We think there's a different way to go: quality media production that doesn't break the bank. Give us a call and let us see what we can do for you. Come to us for one thing, stay with us for everything.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with a you, as a new customer communication, both ways, is key. We happily answer your questions in person, via phone or over email. We value your input and we will do our best to satisfy your specific requirements.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I apprenticed with a photographer when I was 18 for a full year. That gave me a solid foundation in the field and I started my own business at 19. After serving in the Air Force and teaching at the United States Air Force Academy, I got back into photography/video and retrained myself into the digital age via online courses (Lynda.com/LinkedIn Learning), self training and seminars. In addition to being a photo and video pro, I'm highly capable with the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, After Effects, InDesign) I'm also an FAA Certified Drone Pilot. I look forward to working with you.
