When my husband and I started talking about a photographer for our wedding, we knew that this would be one of our “absolutely no settling” things about planning. After all, We will have the pictures forever; looking back at them, Telling friends and family about our amazing day and not to mention one day when we are old and maybe have kids, we can show them our perfect day just as it was through our eyes My Aunt actually suggested we give Jay a call. When I spoke to him he was very professional and he was available on our day We kept in contact over phone, but mostly email (which this introvert LOVED). He asked about the venue and I was able to share pictures so he could become familiar with the landscape and different options. He also asked me to send him some examples of some of the picture/poses I really wanted included. On the day of my wedding Jay showed up early and got straight to work. He took the pictures of the “little things” early, before much was going on. He went back and forth between the brides room and the grooms room taking pictures of use getting ready the our closest friends, and he was never in the way! He went out of his way to make sure he got perfect “The Picture” every time, even hanging half way off the dock, we were worried he would fall in Taking all of the pictures we wanted pushed the timing behind a little, but he even stayed later than what we agreed to make sure he got the dances I would highly recommend Jay as your photographer for all of your special days!!

Jay Grubb Wedding Photography did my daughter's wedding last month at the River House in St. Augustine and did an AMAZING job. Jay is not a photographer; he is an artist. I chose Jay because the photos on his website were breathtaking. He did not disappoint when he did our photos. When I saw the proofs this week (which was ONLY four weeks later with retouches, etc.), I couldn't believe how stunning they turned out. The beautiful lighting, the perfect angles, the dramatic effects were all there. There are several pictures worthy of being in an art gallery. I won't go on and on, but do yourself a favor and use Jay if you care about getting the best possible photos of your event. It should also be noted that our wedding was a tough assignment due to having a total of 16 attendants in the wedding party, 25 relatives for a group photo and over 150 guests that took full advantage of the open bar. Jay managed to keep things running smoothly and we were able to stay on time with the prepared timeline throughout the day. And on top of everything else, he was always pleasant and professional. The wedding lasts a day, but our memories will last forever thanks to these wonderful photos. Thanks, Jay! More...

Punctual, professional, reasonably priced, handled all the photo requests (and there were a ton). Always kept a watchful eye for wedding photo-bombers - caught two ladies trying to get in on a few pics. Excellent job Jay!

We hired Jay to be our Photographer, Videographer & run our Photobooth and our wedding was at the St. Frances Barracks in St. Augustine, FL! I will say hiring Jay was the BEST decision we could’ve made. He was the easiest vendor to work with and he has such a high standard of professionalism. He has such a great team to work with as well! I’m very glad we decided to hire him and his team for all of the photography, videography & photobooth because they all worked so well together. He made the whole process so smooth and convenient (especially for those stressed out brides, like me). His packages were BY FAR the best pricing for the quality of work and what’s included in his packages. Also, his turn around time is unbelievable! We received our photobooth stripes only TWO DAYS after the wedding and the wedding picture proofs to choose from only ONE WEEK after the wedding! His online questionnaire was very user friendly and it brought up a lot of planning ideas that I hadn’t thought of. Also, due to his experience in the wedding industry he was excellent at outlining exactly what to expect leading up to your wedding and on your wedding (which made me feel a lot more confident and prepared). He has always been very responsive via email, text and phone calls. I’m so happy with Jay and even happier to find out he does family shoots as well! This won’t be the last time I work with him! Thank you for all of your help and hard work Jay! Can’t wait to work with you again! More...

When you are getting married, you are not looking for someone just to snap photos. You are looking for an artist with a camera. Someone that recreate a moment in time. So special that when you look back it brings back that moment so vividly. Jay absolutely captivates those moments. Forever grateful Mr. & Mrs. Ortiz More...

Jay was awesome to work with. He listened to what we wanted from a photographer and did so much more than what we wanted. Jay showed up early to the getting ready and stayed through the reception. The best pictures were the candid photos. Jay took the time to get to know us, so he was easy to talk and ask for favors during the wedding day. Definitely someone I would recommend for any photoshoot you wanted done. More...

We had the privilege of having Jay Grubb capture the moments of our special day. We decided on a small beach wedding and being a DIY bride i was extremely stressed and short on time (late to my own wedding) Jay was on top of things capturing moments of my bridesmaids and I before the ceremony and came early to the wedding so that he captured the venue and decorations before the crowd arrived. I was upset that I ran out of time before the ceremony to take posed pictures with my bridesmaid only to find even more beautiful candid pictures once our photos were finished. Jay was also super helpful during the wedding reception, ( I did not have a coordinator) and set up the bouquet and garter toss for us! We cannot thank him enough. Our pictures are absolutely stunning! The candid photos of my husband and I after the ceremony brought me to tears and our friends and family talk about them all the time. I look forward to working with him again on future events! More...

I will do my best to put into words all the fun and special memories Jay created with us on our wedding day! Besides the actual getting married to my Husband part, taking pictures was the most enjoyable part of our day! As with most weddings, there was some drama between family, a late start, an outside wedding on the hottest recorded day for that month and because of a misunderstanding by a well meaning friend there was no planned live music for the reception. But through it all, Jay was one factor I didn’t have to worry about and in fact, enjoyed! He made it an experience, like an escape inside the moment! He didn’t give into what I saw as chaos around me. He brought his own atmosphere of fun and ease. He was creative and also let us be creative on the spot too! In doing so, he captured the most amazing wedding picture ever (in my humble but very confident opinion ) He was kind, very polite and comfortable to be around. It helped me forget all that was going wrong and just be in the moment, even on that hot day outside in a long white dress. I appreciate all he did for us and after 5 years of marriage, I still have a thrill and sense of pride looking at our wedding photos. Knowing not everything went right that day but our pictures sure did! Thank you, Jay Grubb! More...

Wow! Jay is amazing! Simply the BEST!!!! I am in awe of his professionalism, attention to detail, costumer service, talent, passion for what he does, and his kind heart. When we were married we didn’t have enough money for a videographer. And I promised myself that for our 10th Anniversary I would save up for a video of our magical adventure together as hubby and wife. I complied photos of our courtship, wedding, newlywed life, and growing family over 10 years - and then found Jay to piece it all together with my song list for a video. I am still in awe of how amazing his talent is! He was super patient with me getting all the photos complied and creating a song list. He offered different versions of the video just for aesthetic appeal of what I preferred, and called me when he had any questions to make sure it was extra perfect. The final product is unbelievable! I’m sooooo stoked to surprise my hubby with this romantic video of our life together. I can not recommend him enough! Above and beyond expectations! I only wish we could have used his services 10 years ago on our wedding day. Brides and Grooms, spend the money- you won’t regret it. Totally worth it on your wedding day to cherish the memories. Thank you Jay!!! More...

I had the pleasure to have Jay and Jeremy do all the photography and videography for my wedding. They made the trip from Jacksonville to Orlando and were all set and ready to go by the time my wedding party arrived. I chose Jay after seeing his work on social media. We had an evening wedding at sunset, and a reception with lots of shadows and club lights, so we knew we wanted to go with someone that is a master at capturing and editing light, and Jay is truly a mastermind! We have thousands of photos that allow is to relive the moments of our special day. Jay's personal editing was remarkable, and our photos look like they belong in a magazine; we could not be happier. Aside from the brilliant photography skills, Jay was so easy-going, patient, kind, and accommodating to our special needs and requests. While there was never a time when I felt overwhelmed by cameras in my face, the team was always at the side lines, snapping pictures and video every second of the night, and it shows in their pictures with candids and posed pictures with friends and family. We had such a great time, and we are so thankful to Jay and Jeremy for working with us, we could not have asked for a better team to capture our special day. More...

We booked a 2 day event for our mentorship program locally with Jay Grubb Photography hosting and celebrating over 500 students. The students absolutely loved and had a blast with the photobooth setup on day one and the videography on day two with an American Idolist and ex NFL player was amazing!! We appreciate Jay coming very last minute and going above and beyond understanding what we needed for each day. Jay was prepared, organized and was ready for everything we needed to make our event a success! Thank you for helping us capture and create memories with our local students. We are gratefully and forever thankful for you and your amazing work. ~From Inspire School Programs of NE FL More...

We’re so glad that we picked Jay Grubb Photography. We ordered the silver combination package (photo, video -they use a drone!- and photo booth). Jay and his team were so much fun to work with, as well as super professional, kind, and knowledgeable. Leading up to and throughout our wedding day, Jay gave us lots of helpful tips and guidance so that we could capture a ton of special moments. We had some super fun poses and he was able to utilize our venue to take some awesome pictures. His team was wonderful, flexible and efficient (we got our unedited pictures back within a week!). We would highly recommend. More...

Jay is everything a photographer should be and more. Not only a master of his equipment, but also insync with his clients. Jay could sense when we were antsy and would check with us in between shots to see how we were doing. His politeness and efficiency during family formals was superb considering how challenging our family can be to get on the same page haha. Jay's style was everything we wanted it was very candid and non intrusive. Every now and then he would simply re-position us for better shots, but in a way that was still natural. You'll hear a lot of vendors during the planning process and wedding day say ,"It's your day." Jay had a ton of awesome ideas, but truly let us decide how we wanted to proceed. Emotional intelligence is priceless and having the awareness of others feelings/emotions during day like this makes it so much better. I can most definitely vouch for Jay in this regard. My wife and I couldn't have been happier with our choice. It's truly Jay's priceless intangibles as a person that contribute to his end products, and for that I'm grateful. More...

He calmed me and my bridesmaids when we were feeling anxious and flustered about time when getting ready. He was very professional yet relaxed and reassuring which was key to the mood and energy in the room and also while he was taking photos. Amazing is an understatement!!

Wonderful!!! We found Jay after researching local photographers online. With his rave reviews on multiple sites, we booked him for a sunrise engagement photo session on the beach. Prior to our session, we traded calls and emails so he had an understanding of what we were looking for. He was responsive and so easy to work with. Most importantly, the pictures were stunning!!!! We could not be happier with how they turned out. And the best part of it, we didn't have to wait long to see them. His turnaround time was fantastic!

From the photography to the video and photo booth! I was not disappointed in the least bit ! I couldn't wait to see the photos because I knew how wonderful they would turn out to be and I once again I was right! He captured everything so beautifully, every little detail. His photography is a true art! Our friends and family are all saying how beautiful our pictures turned out. He focused so much of his time with so much energy, and attention on us bride and groom! Jay takes really amazing, artistic shots. He knew when to take us outside for some amazing shots that we are in love with now! I could of never asked for a better photographer and I am so thankful that my ONE special day was captured so beautiful by him! Thank you Jay Grubb and the entire team, you guys truly rock!! More...

If you don't book Jay, then you are insane! I knew this guy was good after our engagement pics and then was completely floored after seeing our wedding photos. This guy is AMAZING. He is so creative and has an eye for locations and poses that look awesome. He is very warm and friendly and will guide you how throughout the pics and how to pose (my husband and I had no idea what to do!). His prices are VERY reasonable considering how much work he puts in and the quality of the photos (he doesn't cut corners!). I have been in many weddings and Jay is definitely the best. He has a flow of how he does things and is very good at time management and can crank out a ton of pics in less time (in other weddings i have been in, it would take 30 min just to do some family shots while Jay can pump them out in less than half the time). THANK you Jay for capturing moments of my wedding that we will look back on the rest of our lives! More...

From the moment we decided to have a wedding I began searching for the perfect photographer. Yes you read that right I searched for the photographer first because lets be honest a great photographer can make anything look amazing! There was this one photo online that captured my attention and I kept going back to it. The light, the balance, the composition, the creativity, the scene...it was everything we needed to capture our moment. We were having our wedding at the beautiful Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens and needed the right person to showcase it. Jays website was a breeze after having searched through so many. He responded at lightning speed for everything and always honestly. Jays ala carte setup was budget friendly and allowed us to get exactly what we wanted without any of the pricey things we didn't need. We chose his Silver Package and added the photo booth and album (best decision ever! those pictures were hilarious and turned our wedding into a blast for our guests not to mention you get to see them right away) as well as the video and engagement session (we recommend the longer engagement session, practicing with the photographer made a huge difference for us and allowed us to relax and let Jay create his masterpieces on the actual day of ). I knew the second I saw our first photo that hiring Jay was the best decision I could have made. From the beginning to the end Jays personality kept everyone at ease and having fun. Jay can get along with anyone and anything (there was a snake, a couple of penguins, and a peacock there). Jay somehow even convinced the groom to get into the ocean in January for the most amazing engagement day photo I could have ever imagined and he also convinced my mother to get up and dance at my reception and captured the moment too. He was always there but barely seen. He kept everyone on track and always kept my vision in mind! Jay was incredible and exceeded our expectations and we are fans for life! More...

Cannot express enough how amazing and wonderful it was to work with this team of highly professional, and friendly photographers and videographers. Jay, along with his lead photographer, Jeremy and other fantastic team members truly were the best to work with on a day that seemed to speed by in the blink of an eye. The post production is well worth the wait for what will be a magical story for you and your spouse to be able to remember with motion picture quality photos and videos that help you remember those little details that made the Wedding Day so special. Thank you Jay Grubb and team for making our wedding day smooth and fun, and helping us keep those special memories alive with such vivid and spectacular quality! More...

Jay was an absolute pleasure to work with and a great photographer! He really has an eye to catch candid moments, the love, fun, and all that goes into a wedding - and it comes out in his photography! He was highly professional yet fun to work with, and did a great job of getting both the traditional poised pictures but also getting a reaction out of the people being photographed to elicit genuine smiles and laughter that truly make the pictures. His use of angles and focus make for a variety of great pictures, too. The one piece of wedding planning advice everyone gave us leading up to our big day was how important your photographer is, and Jay was absolutely amazing in capturing our memories of our major life event :) More...

Jay did an amazing job for our wedding. We planned the wedding from on the other side of the globe as we live in Japan and were getting married in St Augustine, and Jay was able to help us out for the entire process.

During the day of, we had a plan for how we wanted the day to go, but when we had to adjust on the fly he was able to roll with the changes. He knocked out the required family photos after the ceremony with quick speed because no one enjoys that part of the experience.

We also used his photo booth service and he had an attendant, Connor (I think that was his name) who did a great job as well. The set up for the photo booth fit the decor (get the winebox), and the provided props were outstanding.

Our photos turned out great, our guests loved their photo strips, and we got to keep duplicates that were put inside a photo album for us.

Hands down, Jay is THE best in the Photography and Video Business! He was extremely thorough throughout the planning, answering all questions. He was very responsive to messages via email as well as phone calls and text messages. On our wedding day, Jay was very punctual and professional. He arrived early and even researched our chosen first look location, to find unique photo opportunities. His quality of work is nothing short of amazing and worth every penny. He is a professional. Let him do what he excels at and take his advice. He assisted us with choosing the proper package for our needs as well as capturing our visions on our wedding day. When shopping for a photographer, we knew what style we wanted, and came across his work. He delivered photos that were more than we could have asked for and he did everything that he stated he would do. His packages are priced accordingly with his work, and we loved that he gave us so many photos to choose for our package. His turn around time for our photo proofs was great as well. Before we left for our honeymoon the following day, he had our wedding proofs uploaded for us to view! We also received our raw footage video the day of our wedding. Jay was wonderful to work with and we look forward to having him capture more of life’s moments when we return to Florida again! More...

We had our engagement photo session with Jay at the St. Augustine Lighthouse this past Sunday and we had nothing short of a great experience! He was timely and very accommodating, very pleasant and easy to work with. He made us feel comfortable during the shoot and he was a total trooper as we climbed a few hundred steps to the top of the lighthouse! We received the proofs for our review very quickly and they look absolutely amazing; we cannot wait to see how the final ones turn out! I highly recommend his services for any of your special occasion!

The photos are stunning and I thought the suspense was going to kill me but he had them up on his wasy to use gallery that evening! After we made our selections our photos were ready to download.

He knew exactly what Photos look good and made it easy for us to pose, which we are especially grateful considering that we are camera shy. All in all, I would highly recommend More...

I want to start by saying I have never wrote a review...EVER.
My husband and I just got married at The Henderson Resort on October 1st. It was a destination wedding (we’re from Maryland) and everything was going wrong. My father was supposed to walk me down the aisle and do a father daughter dance with me, and all the other fatherly things they’re supposed to do. BUT he decided to leave the day before without telling me. We found out when my sister went to pick him up from his hotel for rehearsal and his car was no longer there. Luckily my step dad stepped in and saved the day. Needless to say after a lot of ugly crying and not much sleep, I didn’t look so great for our wedding day. The tent for the reception was blown over by the monster winds, And I didn’t have music to walk down the aisle to (no one warned me about this before I walked), The only three things that I cared about aside from actually getting married. I was honestly a wreck. Jay was like the steady rock. He was amazing! In the midst of all the chaos he still managed to capture some beautiful photos. He was on time and ready to go (we were not). He was OH SO patient with my demanding friends, and our photos were ready to be reviewed in a week and a half. I had bridesmaids, but I never thought that it would be the photographer that would be the one to talk to me and keep me calm through everything. He is awesome! More...

Jay Grubb and his team of videographers and photographers shot our wedding in June 2017. We could not be happier with them and we wholeheartedly recommend them for your wedding. We started with engagement photos with Jay prior to our wedding. Not only were the images that he captured beautiful, but Jay's fun, casual, and easy-going personality made it easy for us to get to know him, relax, and feel more comfortable in front of the camera prior to our big wedding day. (Don't be misled by my description of "fun and casual," though, because everything about Jay and his crew is professional and experienced from beginning to end in demeanor and appearance!). Jay was super helpful in helping us customize a package that fit our needs and priorities. We wanted a combination of both formal portraits and photo journalistic photos, and Jay delivered both with amazing quality. We had some specific photographs that we wanted to try and capture on our wedding day and Jay made sure that those happened. Jay and his team handled the high-stress and rule-laden setting of the Cathedral Basilica with ease and artistic eye. Jay Grubb and his team will not let you down with their professionalism, artistic experience, and breathtaking photography and videography! More...

Did an engagement photo shoot with Jay this past weekend and we are excited to have him booked for our wedding. My fiancee and I weren't really into the idea of an engagement photo shoot, but with our wedding coming up in a month we figured it would be great practice. SO GLAD WE DID! We had such a fun time with Jay. He picked out a great spot on the beach. Time of day was perfect and his photos captured the evening sun beautifully. The variety of shots from playful, to dramatic, to loving portraits all came out excellent. Plus he gave us lots of tips (and hand signals) for us to shine on our wedding day. Jay is very professional, tailored the shots to fit our personalities, and we look forward to having him as a part of our wedding. More...

A few days later, I suprisingly received a message the pics were ready for review. The proofs were absolutely stunning! We can't thank him enough. The whole process of inquiring, to booking, to taking the pics, and then reviewing the pics have been seamless! More...

Choosing a photographer for your wedding day is one of the most important aspects. It is up to the photographer to capture all of the unrepeatable, once in a lifetime moments that you will cherish for the remainder of your lives. Jay has the uncanny ability to not only capture each and every special moment but also depict the story leading up those "money shots". And forget about learning how to contort yourselves in unrealistic, staged posses because that's what would make the photograph look good thought the photographer's eyes. Jay has the unique ability to study how each couple interacts with each other in an intimate setting and capitalizing on the natural, unscripted moments of pure love and beauty. He also makes certain that his subjects are always at ease, making light humor that allows any person to feel relaxed and confident, which creates breathtaking images. If you are in search of a photographer for your upcoming wedding, look no further. Jay is absolutely a guarantee that you will not only get phenomenal pictures but the story of your wedding depicted in images that are truly beautiful. More...

He is so easy to work with, did great working with our kids, and got some fun shots of our guests at the wedding as well.

I will do my best to describe how fortunate we were to have Jay photograph our wedding. Due to an unfortunate circumstance, we found ourselves without a photographer 3 weeks before our wedding! After stumbling upon Jay's website and seeing his stunning and distinct photography style, I contacted him immediately to see if he was available. Jay responded within the day! Not only was he able to take us in on such short notice, he also negotiated a custom package for us. Day of, Jay was on it! In the midst of all the wedding chaos, Jay was cool and calm - even in the company of overly inquisitive grandmothers and rowdy groomsmen. Jay was personable, direct in his advice, and obviously very experienced. I am so very thankful we were able to have Jay as our photographer and I cannot wait to see our photos, which I have the utmost confidence will be gorgeous. More...

Jay was simply perfect. We purchased his elopement package for an intimate beach wedding with just my husband and I. There was outstanding communication leading up to the ceremony by e-mail. He was able to fit us in on very short notice, we booked him 6 weeks before the wedding! On the day, he was early to the site, and talked us through everything. He helped us feel natural during our pictures, explaining how we should walk, where to look etc. He was extremely respectful and professional, which really stood out to my husband; he asked him if he could touch my arm before he posed us! And the pictures! Good God the pictures are just amazing! They hardly need any editing at all! What a talented man! Thank you for capturing our day! More...

All of our guests enjoyed the party and we can relive the day through Jay’s photos. During the ceremony and reception Jay captured the look and feel of the event by being there without “being seen”. Jay made great suggestions throughout the day. On the business side, Jay’s communication before and after the event was always timely, thorough and professional. We highly recommend Jay. More...

Jay shot our Destin, Florida beach wedding at Palazzo Del Sol on May 28, 2016 and we could not be happier with the results! I honestly can't say enough good things. He was SO amazing throughout the whole process. He came a bit early to scope out the best places to take photos, made some of our shy bridal party members feel completely comfortable, and truly captured the entire night from start to finish beautifully. After the wedding we spent time the next day talking about how great Jay was and I think my mom said it best, "He was the perfect mix of in the action and hanging back" - meaning that he captured EVERY shot we wanted and also captured some intimate moments between guests without even realizing we were being photographed. You can't go wrong with Jay. If you need a photographer for your beach wedding he is the one to go to without a doubt! He also had better pictures and better prices than some of the other people we looked at. Amazing all the way around. More...

Jay has such a keen eye for outdoor lighting and unique, thoughtful shots. Not only is he professional and extremely responsive, he is open to hearing your thoughts and ideas for shots and blending them with his artistic talent and the reality of lighting, venue, time of day, etc. to ensure the absolute best shots! Our wedding was outdoors, remote, in broad daylight (1:30pm), and with nautural elements in the way of wild horsey poop, and gnats during the vows. He managed to capture ansolutely stunning and magical shots and it's like he wasn't even there half the time. I knew I wanted a more editorial look and he nailed it! His ability to shoot nature shots and expertise with weddings is a winning combination and I am beyond glad we chose him. I can't wait to see the final, edited pictures. There are so many great one's to chose from. His prices are great for a job he goes above and beyond for. He was even willing to travel 40 minutes by ferry to shoot our wedding on Cumberland Island, GA! You can see his passion for his work in your photos and I highly recommend him! Thank you Jay for making our little elopement so special!!! More...

Our wedding was planned to be outdoors at the Ribault Club, but due to the rain it was all moved indoors. Jay did a fantastic job of rearranging his planned shots. Our photographs turned out amazing. He will also work with your budget! More...

Jay did such an amazing job as our wedding photographer! From the first time we met with Jay to discuss our wish list, through the wedding itself and then receiving our wedding package, he was so incredibly professional and thorough that we couldn't have asked for anything more. We were so impressed with his work that we have now booked a family shoot with our new baby and have recommended him to all our friends and family. More...

Jay just did our engagement photos this past weekend at Washington Oaks Gardens and will also be photographing our wedding in July. From the moment I met him, I was already sold! Not only could I tell Jay is a true professional and takes his job very seriously, he has a muted charm that can put any worried bride-to-be at ease.Our engagement session was on Sunday, and Jay already had the proofs ready for my fiance and I to view on Monday! Furthermore, he went out of his way to edit a few of our photos in advance to give us an idea of what his creative "tricks" can do to make his photos even more beautiful. Jay Grubb is an excellent photographer who knows how to bring a couple's love to life through his art. I highly recommend all couples to choose Jay for engagement photos or their wedding. His prices are incredibly reasonable compared to other local photographers, especially considering how talented Jay really is! I cannot wait to see what magic he'll be able to perform for my wedding!!! More...

Jay did such a great job as our wedding photographer! He met with us twice before the wedding to see possible locations for great pictures. He was so friendly and made us feel at ease while photographing us!The day of the wedding he scouted out a location that I would have never thought to use, and the pictures there are our favorites! He is very creative and is great at thinking on the fly!Not only is the quality amazing, the proof gallery is great and so easy to use. To print pictures from there with high quality prints is super easy and inexpensive!!His prices are really hard to beat as well! We will definitely be using him again in the future, and we highly recommend him! More...

There are so many wedding photographers to pick from. Why Jay? Well, he cares about his job. He cares that you get the best photographs you can capture. He takes your pictures like he would capture special moments for his own family. He is committed to ensure every memory from your day is caught. Best of all, he made it personal. The event was personal to him, and he caught the day with a personal touch.
He was at the rehearsal dinner and coached the bridal party how to stand and when to walk for optimal photographic opportunities, which was invaluable to the success of the “perfect” wedding shot. He took charge of group photos with just the right amount of force and gentleness to get the job done right. He paid attention to detail. As a bridesmaid looking in, you see all the little things that the bride may not notice on the big day. Jay took every opportunity to ensure the bride and groom got the shots they wanted. Professional, attentive, accommodating and friendly are words I would use to describe Jay. He is also timely and makes the process fun and drama-free. I recommend his personalized services without hesitation; and know he will take care of all your photographic needs to the nth degree.

Jay was absolutely wonderful as our wedding photographer. We had a very small, intimate ceremony and Jay was very discrete in selecting the best position to take photographs so not to be obvious, something difficult to do in a small chapel with just a handful attending. We are thrilled with the results and would use Jay again for another special occasion. More...

My husband and I hired Jay to do our engagement photos as well as our wedding/reception photography, and I could probably write a book about all the reasons Jay is YOUR man!!! He suggested Washington Oaks Gardens as our venue for the engagement session and the photos literally took our breath away. The lush, green atmosphere of this park was a perfect choice for Ryan's and my personalities - earthy and organic, and the photos truly represented this energy. Jay is so sweet and his dedication combined with his talent are rare qualities to find not only in your everyday person, but particularly in a photographer. He fully invests himself in your relationship, takes the time to get to know you as individuals, and has an intuitive nature, which I believe is ultimately what makes his photos so unique.

On our wedding day, Jay was punctual as he always has been, and put my bridesmaids and I at complete ease and I know he had a fun time with my husband and his groomsmen! From the photos he took of my girls and I getting ready to all the decorations, to groomsmen photos, to family pictures, tons of beautiful candid shots, our first dance, Father-Daughter dance, Mother-Son dance, guests having a blast dancing, to some magnificent ones Jay got of Ryan and I on the green at Hidden Hills Country Club during a momentous sunset, we have been completely blown away by this man's raw talent! Our favorites haven't even been edited yet and they are so gorgeous!!

If you want a photographer who is professional, genuine, caring, prompt, extremely talented and efficient, plus one whose prices pale in comparison to the quality of his work, RUN to Jay Grubb! I will forever recommend him to any and everyone who gets engaged and/or married. Thank you again, Jay. Ryan and I love you to pieces.

Most of the night we did not even notice him sneaking candid photos here and there, he was in and out so quickly. He captured so many great shots for us and I LOVED the lighting he used! I would love to have him do more of our family photos in the future. By far my favorite photographer I have worked with professionally. More...

Jay was a great photographer for our wedding. He took time to meet with us way ahead of the wedding day to get to know us on a personal level. He asked many questions about our style and preferences and was very easy to connect with. His fun, easy-going personality makes him a natural for doing weddings. On our wedding day he captured all the special moments and also came up with some much needed helpful suggestions throughout the day. The final photographs were finished ahead of schedule and turned out beautifully. Thank you Jay! More...

Jay is amazing. He actually met my daughter, her fiancee and myself at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens to tour it as he had not shot there previously to scope out good photo ops. I don’t know how many photographers would do that. We now have the proofs and they have exceeded my expectations, even…I watched the pictures of the bridal party on the back of the train and other unusual spots and knew they would be terrific!!! My problem will be selecting "only" 800, and I think and I may need to dedicate an entire room for the bride/groom pictures alone! He and his assistant also came to our home day of during the bridesmaids hair/makeup/get dressed event as well and have some fun pics from there too…priced reasonably and a great guy…check his website to see the quality of his work, I DID…and he did not disappoint! You get full rights to pictures and may order or get CD or drive and has numerous packages to suit budget, time, etc…HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! More...

Working with Jay was the best photography experience we have had as a family. He made the photo shoot enjoyable for the kids and the grumpy men who didn't want to have their picture taken. The pictures were beautiful and playful - capturing our family in a casual everyday way instead of a bunch of stiffs in a studio. I can't wait till the next time! More...

Short and simple Jay is amazing. Fun person. Great Photos.

For the details:
Jay took the time to meet with us way in advance of our wedding to discuss details, meet us, and find out what we're looking for in the photos. He even helped us out by asking us questions about details that we never thought of. And if we had questions, Jay was always there to shoot a quick email. We could tell that Jay was not only friendly and very professional, but he definitely enjoyed what he was doing. When we told him where the wedding was, he had never been there but took the time to scout it out and look at it.

On the day of, Jay was there before we were- already taking photos of the surrounding area. He was very happy to be taking photos and interacted very well with everyone there. His work is very quick and on point. He seems to know what he wants while also having an eye for anything that might provide a great opportunity for a photograph. You could tell that he knew what he was working with and how to use it. At the same time he enjoyed what he was doing, and it let us enjoy our day as well.

And the quality of his final product is very good. We have seen other people's photos who paid a lot more than we did, and Jay's work blows them out of the water. The photos themselves are top quality photos and his editing only serves to enhance the original intent of the photo and not distract from it. We definitely recommend anyone looking for a photographer to hire Jay for his professionalism, friendly warm personality, and great quality of work.

My fiancé and I did our engagement pics with Jay. When we first set the date, the day turned out to be rainy. Jay called us, and instead of just trying to get it over with, suggested we switched the day, but of course was our decision and we decided to do so. Weather on our second attempt was perfect. Jay was very helpful and found ways to use all the props I brought, and my little dog! We had a great time shooting with him and the pictures turned out great!! More...
