  • My fiance and I recently contacted Jay for an Engagement photoshoot. Jay not only helped us pick the location based on what we were looking for, but also helped us finalize the time of the day when we would get the best lighting. That really made us feel we were in good hands as we knew very little about all this. Jay was extremely professional and we had a flawless photoshoot. Our pictures came in a week's time and the pictures are just amazing and beautiful. I'd highlighly recommend Jay Resh photography to the new couples out there and to anyone who's looking for a photshoot. )

    Happy New Year, Priyanka! Thank you so much! I really do appreciate the kind words. I'm so happy you found your images to be "amazing and beautiful." That's always the goal :)

  • It was such a pleasure working with Jay. We chose him because we loved his images and his rates fit our budget perfectly. Because of the Covid lock down we had to reschedule our wedding date until 2021, but we still wanted to have a private ceremony with a couple of family members. Jay was very accommodating and was able to work with us on creating a safe, socially distanced, photoshoot during and after the ceremony. He's been very accommodating with our rescheduling, and has been supportive and reassuring as well. Great photography, and very professional. Hire him!!!

    Thank you Lindsay! I loved being a part of your big day, and always love working with your family :) Can't wait to see you all again in 2021!

  • We really love Jay's images! We spent a lot of time looking around and were almost settled on another photographer. Curiosity kept us looking and we ended up on Jay's website. We immediately fell in love with the colors and look his pictures have. Booked him a few days later and couldn't be happier with the images and the level of service! So many things went wrong (our fault since we decided to not go with a wedding planner) but Jay helped tremendously. He kept things moving and kept us from losing our minds! We never expected that from our photographer but it was great to have. Totally recommend Jay.

    Thank you, Mark! I truly appreciate the kind words. I'm very happy that I was able to make everything go smoothly for you!

  • Jay was really responsive and willing to accommodate our requests for both our engagement photos and our wedding day photos. He was able to capture very dramatic and cinematic pictures that we will cherish forever. His services are a great value and we would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. He's also a really nice guy.

  • We are so glad we chose Jay to be our photographer! I work in fashion and spend a lot of time looking through images. There's a big difference between good and amazing. I wanted amazing images of my wedding day (who doesn't?). I must have looked at 20 different photographers, and when really looking at their images, I wasn't impressed. But wow, Jay is actually an artist. His images are exactly what I wanted. Just look for yourself. It's plain as day. He's also very professional and responsive. Wedding planner loved working with him too... oh, and the entire bridal party, actually. He kept us laughing and having fun while we were taking photos. That was a huge plus!

    Happy New Year Helen, and thank you so much for the wonderful words! It was a really great experience getting to know you and work with you! I'm so happy I could make the day a bit more fun for you :)

  • OVERALL: The most notable traits about Jay are his reliability, his speedy responsiveness, and his flexibility in his willingness to help. I highly recommend him for any event, and would definitely work with him again if I had the opportunity. FIRST IMPRESSIONS: We were recommended to Jay by our wedding videographer. After visiting his website, we immediately loved his natural style, both in colors, which were not overly edited, and the natural expressions he captured in his subjects. Not to mention that his pricing was in our ideal budget. Upon first message, we already felt his genuine and professional nature, which made communication so easy from start to finish. PLANNING PHASE: Even before we signed, Jay acted not only as a photographer, but also doubled as a creative director and consultant for how we should plan our day around the photo opportunities. We took away so many ideas for our big day from just this first session; this helped us establish our trust in him from the ... Read more

  • Jay was awesome to work with! He fit right into our relaxed and low key vibe that we wanted for our wedding. We wanted fun, unique and non-traditional and he captured all of the moments we wanted. He also was very flexible to our schedule and requests. We held an 80's costume hot tub cruise party on the bay the day after our wedding and we were able to trade that out for an engagement photo session! He even dressed the part. Well, that was our requirement. :) Thanks, Jay, for capturing our moments and joining us for the after-party!

    Thank you Nikki! It was so much fun getting to photograph your wedding, and 80's hot tub cruise party!! It was such a pleasure! Thank's for letting me be a part of the excitement :)

  • Jay was incredible to work with! He did an engagement session for us as well as our wedding and all of the photos are beautiful! On our wedding day, he was the perfect person to keep me calm and carefree while trusting him to capture everything. Like having a close friend in charge. Jay is very personable, light hearted, and professional, as well as willing to roll with the punches which is what you need from your photographer on your wedding day! We got our photos back very quickly and I could not be happier with them! Thank you so much, Jay for your beautiful work! It was a pleasure working with you!

  • We found Jay in the list of top Fearless Photographers. We were impressed with his style and decided to book him! He met with us a few months prior at our venue, he was very responsive and flexible throughout the process. On the wedding day he was just running around capturing photos from all of our special moments, he made us feel so comfortable in front of his camera that our poses just kind of came naturally. He made sure he captured everything we asked him to before the wedding and he delivered our photos as promised containing all the photos we hoped for! - He is a very talented photographer - He is professional - He is keeps his promise with timelines and delivery - He is empathetic towards the bride! Understood it was a stressful day for me and was very calm and cooperative! BOOK HIM!

  • Jay was so great to work with right from the start. He made us feel confident that we'd look good if we just relaxed and had fun at our wedding, which is exactly what we wanted. We looked through samples of his work and told him what we liked, and that's exactly what he delivered when we got our images back. It's so nice that we got something back that looked as good (if not better) than what we envisioned. He had an amazing personality too. That was something else we were really impressed with. No matter how crazy it got, he was so calm and reassuring that everything was running smoothly. Thanks Jay!

  • I am SO glad we worked with Jay for our wedding photos. He was very responsive right off the bat, and I really appreciated that he really listened to what we wanted. I also appreciate the contract he sends out because it is super thorough and helped me feel more assured! We had a courthouse wedding and small reception and only requested several hours as opposed to a full day with Jay, and he did a REALLY great job of maximizing our time and helping us plan, and even keeping us on track the day-of. I think without him things wouldn't have been so smooth, so he REALLY went above and beyond! He is great at helping plan for the event and thinking of all possible situations, and he is really really good at executing on the day-of. He is also VERY good at giving direction, which was super important to me and my partner since we had no idea how to pose for photos. I love love love Jay's photo style--it captures personality, emotion, gorgeous light, and is ethereal while still just real an... Read more

  • Jay has such great vision. We were drawing a blank when it came to so much of the wedding timeline and pictures we wanted to get. But the hour we spent with him going over the details solved all that. He was also kind enough to drive us around during our engagement session so we could go to more than one location without any problems. I know that has nothing to do with his images, but I think it goes towards his personality which is very helpful and caring. Bridesmaids loved him, groomsmen loved him, family loved him, we loved him too. Our pictures look magazine quality good. Perfect score photographer!

  • I rarely review anything, but Jay's service is worth it. When we started looking for someone to photograph our wedding, we knew exactly what we wanted. We wanted someone we trusted to show up. We wanted someone that was more focused on detail and took their time to get things right. We wanted someone relaxed and easy to work with. We got that all from Jay. It was a huge weight off our shoulders when we met him. He made suggestions that really helped. He kept us calm and on track the entire day. Just a nice guy with great photography skills.

  • This guy wears so many hats! Photographer, planner, motivational coach lol. No matter how nervous I started to get, he kept bringing me back down to earth. Reassuring me and my husband that the day was about us, and we should just enjoy it. It was great because we ended up with lots of natural looking pics, instead us both looking super anxious and awkward lol. I highly recommend using him! The entire process was so pleasant. Love you, Jay!!

  • Super talented photographer!!! Me and my fiance are both horribly shy and don't like taking pictures, and after talking to Jay about it, he spent some time (for free!!!) to teach us some sweet skills for killing it in front of the camera! We already did an engagement session with another photographer so instead of the free session I ended up doing a boudoir shoot. Super professional and respectful. The images are so classy!!! I kept saying "omg, is that me??" I wish I could walk around looking like his images of me all the time lol!! Wedding pictures are sooooooo good! We got the album. I know I could have done it myself, but I'm way too lazy lol. I'm glad though. He put it together in a way I know I wouldn't have. The prints are fantastic! I could say much much more, but I won't go too crazy here. He's amazing. Just know that!! Lol.
