After reviewing several photographers in the area, I learned about Jay through Thumbtack. I had never used Thumbtack before so I was unsure as to what the experience would be like. Jay was extremely professional. I needed family portraits taken during a family vacation to Captiva Island, FL. Jay responded immediately to my requests for information and availability and sent sample photos that he had taken for me to view prior to booking with him. He monitored the weather throughout the week and even suggested a backup day in case the weather would not cooperate with our plans. Jay was extremely personable and went out of his way to make sure that he captured the poses, etc. that I requested. He arrived with his assistant, Mike, who was also great and professional. Jay brought props, such as a ladder, chair (for my 2 year old son), stool, etc. to ensure that a variety of poses and angles of photographs could be obtained. My photos look wonderful and my entire family and I were extremely pleased with the experience and quality of the service and photos. Jay really seemed to be concerned with providing a high quality service and provided thoughtful suggestions for poses and lighting, etc. to provide the best possible photos. He was wonderful and I will definitely contact him during our next family vacation to FL.
