Jay was amazing! We were expecting to feel a bit awkward, but he made it seem completely natural walking around in public getting our photos taken. Couldn't have been happier with the final photos, we will treasure them forever :)

I don’t even know where to begin. From the moment I first connected with Jay, it was an immediate thought that he would be our photographer. Before I get into how amazing Jay’s work is, I first want to say how incredibly kind, punctual, responsive, detail-oriented and easy going he is. When we first connected, I had a response before the close of the day. Jay made himself available within the next day to jump on a call and talk through what we were thinking, what we knew we wanted and what his process looks like. My husband and I had never gone through this before and Jay literally held us by the hands and walked us through it all. From timing to guidance on expectations for the day of, he is a true professional and expert in his craft. We had the time of our lives on our wedding day and Jay captured each and every moment. I have no idea how one person can be in so many places at once but he got there. We are so grateful for meeting Jay and having him photograph one of the most important days of our lives. If you are considering, just book him and you will not be disappointed. I’ll include some of our highlights. The saddest part about the wedding is when it’s over and all of the wonderful people you have met go away and life goes back to “normal”. We sincerely thank you for everything Jay.

We had a truly terrific experience having J photograph our marriage ceremony. He was super responsive and helped us schedule our two hours with him perfectly. He was friendly and direct, meaning we made the most of our time with plenty of set-ups and tons of great coverage. He was friendly and made us fee really comfortable, giving us helpful prompts during the shoot to get plenty of creative shots. It never felt like “too much” or “too little. Truly “just right”. During the marriage ceremony itself he Had a plan and got so many great angles that I was kind of shocked. I had no idea that he was hustling around getting that much out of the set-up. It was a pleasure to have J made our day that much more special. He got us photos quickly and was helpful and responsive to questions and requests.

Jay was the consummate professional and personable. He found the perfect park to take my son's senior pictures in and the final pictures were reflective of my son's likes and personality. I will definitely keep Jay in my portfolio for future photography needs.
