Critical acclaim is great. But an honest compliment from a client is better.
We had very high expectations of our photographer as they would be the only one chronicling our wedding; we did not want a videographer there as they are often very obtrusive and our event was designed to be very intimate and personal. Jay exceeded all of our expectations. He was fun and very easy to work with. His photos are wonderful - we'll never miss a video. In fact, there are many photos that we were surprised to see because we didn't even know he was there at that moment. We wanted Life Magazine. Jay gave us that and more. It was an honor to have him as part of our wedding.

People are always curious to know who we, as wedding photographers, would hire to photograph our wedding. After clicking on countless of websites, galleries, and blogs, our search for the perfect photographer ended with Jay. We could tell right away that he was knowledgeable technically and focused artistically. Our wedding would be mostly unscripted and being well aware of Jay's great documentary work, we knew we could trust him to beautifully capture both the obvious and the subtle moments of the day. He delivered great candids throughout the day. We really appreciated Jay's personality, he was friendly and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. We also had so much fun on our engagement session and absolutely loved the shots Jay got.

We loved working with Jay. Our pictures are stunning and we've gotten many compliments on them. We chose not to have a videographer and I'm very happy that we chose to spend the money instead on gorgeous still shots. Jay was extremely flexible and an absolute pleasure to work with. Jay also did the pictures for our cocktail party the night before the wedding so he was with us for much of the wedding weekend and we loved having him there. He fit right in with our very fun group of family and friends. The most important thing of course was the quality of the pictures and Jay did not disappoint; they're truly beautiful.

Jay is an amazing photographer. His pictures are quite extraordinary, truthful and utterly beautiful. He is courteous and kind, and at our wedding, in spite of the incredible photographs he took of us and our loved ones, at no point were we aware of his presence. I would recommend him 100 percent.

It was a pleasure having Jay photograph our wedding. He’s such a dynamic and talented photographer and I am exceedingly happy with our investment. Long after you have forgotten what the cake tasted like, what food was served, or what songs the DJ played, you’ll always have amazing pictures that capture the love and feeling you shared on your wedding day.

Jay is amazing!!! He’s a skilled photographer, a nice and calm person and was just terrific to work with. When Steve and I were stressed planning our wedding, and during the wedding day, Jay was always so relaxed, kind and wonderful! Just perfect. I recommend him without any hesitation!

Jay was FANTASTIC! He captured such beautiful images of our special day, truly capturing the essence of what was happening...so much so that browsing through them rekindles our joy! Jay managed to both disappear, becoming part of our crowd of family and friends and to be there for us in a thousand little ways that were reassuring and fun. The pictures themselves are a testament to his ability to be everywhere at once. They will tell the story of our wedding again and again for years to come. As photographers ourselves, we were full of expectations. Jay met and exceeded them all. Having him with us was a wonderful wedding gift we gave ourselves.

Not only is Jay one of the most talented photographers in town, he is the type of person that makes you feel completely at ease, totally yourself. Through the level of trust and connection that you will find with him, Jay is able to capture photographs that are accurate and meaningful. He is exactly the type of photographer that you want by your side on the big day – discreet, calm and thoughtful.

Jay did an amazing job capturing distinct moments and emotions throughout the day. He exceeded our expectations He’s excellent with people, is not a pushy photographer and has a very mellow, go-with-the-flow personality. He is amazing (and patient too) with children. My two year old niece, Paige, adores Jay. I have been told by so many people that our photos turned out beautifully and that they love Jay. I feel so much emotion and life in our photos. We could not be more pleased. Jay was a calming presence for us on our exciting and stressful wedding day. We would hire him again in a heartbeat. Thank you Jay!

Your photos are beautiful and we are blown away by how natural and relaxed we look.
