About

Hello, my name is Jay, the owner of Jay Knight Photography.
I started my business in 2001. I love to capture moments in time that can be cherished for years to come ( The memories may fade, but the images will last forever ) To me, being a professional photographer is looking into the lens and capturing the beauty on the other side.

Wedding Photography

We had a wonderful experience with Jay from the very beginning he was responsive via e-mail and available by phone. We got to meet with him personally to go over details before hiring him on, it really helped to see if we would mesh well. My husband and him hit it off right away and that's when I knew that Jay would be our photographer. He's funny and outgoing, he made the whole wedding party laugh and have a great time. My husband who dislikes getting his photo taken said that being photographer together by Jay was his favorite part of the whole wedding, that really tells you something there! Jay and his assistants really knows how to capture the moment and make everything look stunning, Jay has a great eye for detail. The end result are amazing photos that we will cherish forever! We plan to hire him again, this time for family photos :) More...

Event & Party Photography

After meeting with 2 other great photographers we found an exceptional photographer whose work was edgy, vibrant, and beautifully composed-Jay Knight. Jay’s super outgoing personality put us at ease and we quickly realized perfect fit for us. We wanted someone who was super creative, professional, and confident. We met with Jay for an engagement shoot a few days before our wedding, which was a great way for us to get to know Jay and familiarize ourselves with how we’d be working together on our wedding day. Jay has the magical ability to make anyone look and feel fabulous and do it in a way that doesn’t feel contrived. When he posted a sneak peek of a few shots from our wedding the following day we were beyond impressed and thrilled with our decision to work with Jay . Then we saw the entire gallery of photos we couldn’t believe how well Jay and his assistants did in capturing the awesomeness of our special day. I especially loved his attention to detail and contemporary-modern approach of framing shots. It was quite a challenge to select photos for our formal album. We were blown away by the final product and have received many compliments on our album. It truly is extraordinary and every time we look at it we are reminded of how much we enjoyed our wedding.
Jay obviously loves what he does and genuinely cares about making every aspect perfect.

Jay was a fantastic photographer to work with. He made the experience personable, fun, engaging and relaxed.
We did a photoshoot to remember our trip to TX and to mark our son's first birthday. Jay was organised, interactive and had an amazing eye for location, lighting and created a relaxed environment for our son and us to enjoy the session. The photos he took were absolutely stunning and really captured the special moments. We would definitely have photos done through him in the future - highly recommended. More...

Jay did a fantastic job capturing my surprise proposal in downtown Dallas. My fiancé was so surprised and happy to have a photographer capture our special moment.  We were so impressed with Jay, he arrived thirty minutes early to go over everything with me and to answer questions I might had. The photos looked beautiful, couldn’t have asked for anything else.
I would highly recommend Jay to anyone! You don’t get a do over when it comes to capturing shots like this. Thank you Jay, see you and your assistants at the wedding.

I hired Jay for some Engagement Photos. My fiance and I were from out of town only in Dallas for a couple days and were able to find Jay online and on short notice. On our way to the photoshoot our rental car stopped working and we had to Uber to the location. Jay was so understanding and made sure we didn't feel rushed when we arrived. After the photo shoot was done he even dropped us off at the resturant we were having dinner at! Not only was he great to work with, Jay sent proofs only after a few days and had our prints within a week! Thank you Jay and Kelly for all your help, it was such a pleasure working with y’all. Everyone has commented on how beautiful the pictures came out. I highly recommend Jay to anyone who is looking for a special occasion photographer. More...

Jay and Lauren are nothing short of amazing photographers. My wedding pictures are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! My pictures make me feel like I'm reliving the most magical day of my life. Jay and his assistant Lauren are so kind, they listened to every single one of the ideas that my husband and I had, and brought every single one of them to life. If you choose them to do your wedding or any event you may be celebrating, you definitely are making the right choice. I promise they won’t disappoint you!! More...

Jay is AMAZING! He was recommended to me by my wonderful wedding planner. I met him at our engagement photo session and he was so sweet and creative. Then we met again at my bridal photo session. I asked him if he could come 30 minutes early and he did no problem! Jay was again sweet as can be and so creative with his shots! My photos were breath taking. At the wedding he and his assistant were hard at work! He worked well with all of my other vendors especially my videographer. When he gave us a sneak peak from the wedding I was blown away! Jay is amazing!!!!!!! I would highly recommend him to anyone! More...

I've never had a professional headshot taken simply because I dreaded the pressure of having to look my best. However, Jay was incredibly professional and experienced.

We found Jay after a lot of research. Right from the minute we connected with him, the professionalism was visible. He was extremely detail oriented and prompt with responses. But all this pales in comparison to the work. Jay and Lauren were at the wedding and blended in like friends. We were of course expecting great work but they blew us away. We did have some changes but what makes it better is that they didn’t just make those changes but somehow improved it and made it even better. Could not ask for anyone better and can’t be happier. 5 Star all the way. More...

We are so grateful and lucky to have chosen Jay and his assistants as our photographers for our wedding. They were punctual, professional and we couldn’t have asked for more. Our wedding is our special day and your wedding will be a special day , Jay will make it so much better. It was a memorable experience because it was effortless on our part. Jay and his amazing assistants gave great instructions and we were able to follow easily. Our photos were delivered couple weeks later. As soon as when we received them, we could not not stop smiling. Our pictures are what reminds us about our special day. It is a special memory. All our friends and family praised the pictures, of how clear and beautiful and how well it captured everything on our special day. You won’t regret it if you pick Jay as your wedding photographer.

A friend of mine had a boudoir session done by Jay, and her pictures looked gorgeous. She told me it was an amazing experience. I called the next day and setup an appointment. The day of the shoot I was so nervous but after I arrived Jay went over everything with me and helped me pick out the right outfits and poses. It was without question better than I expected. Within five minutes into the shoot I was so relaxed. Jay is very professional and talented. Great pricing, personal touches, and a seamless experience. I feel that it was a priceless experience and I cannot wait to work together again in the future. Felt more comfortable than I expected and I couldn't wait to tell my friends about the experience!

Jay has taken our family photos on two separate occasions and we have been thrilled both times. He takes gorgeous photographs and is so fun to work with. He puts everyone at ease so the photos are more natural and relaxed. When I opened our newest photos tonight, I was taken aback by how he captured the true spirit of my family in one of our favorite places. We would love to have every vacation recorded so beautifully.

The absolute best!! More than willing to work with our schedule. Puts in the extra time and gets absolutely every shot you could want! Great at finding nice locations and excellent poses. The pictures couldn’t have been better. Just had my maternity photos done by Jay. He is absolutely hands-down the best photographer I have ever dealt with! He works so well with people and was especially kind with my fiancé and I. He knows just the right angles and just the right positioning in his photography as well as perfect timing of the right light needed in photos. It was nothing but a positive experience with Jay and I highly recommend you to use him for your photos as well! Overall an outstanding experience. More...

We did a family session with Jay during our recent vacation. He was super easy to work with from the start. When we arrived, he was very friendly and put us right at ease. He was great with our kids, and the pictures turned out wonderfully. He takes pictures from multiple angles and has an eye for detail. He is not afraid to jump in the water or get in the sand to get the right shot. I highly recommend Jay and will definitely get in contract with him again on our next visit. More...

Wedding Photography

Jay is an amazing photographer. From the first contact, right through to the wedding he was very accommodating and helpful. He took all of the photos I had asked for and more. He stayed longer than anticipated as we were rather unorganised and captured the most important moments of the wedding in such a beautiful way.

We feel very lucky to have shared our day with him. We are so happy with our photos all of which we received on return from our honeymoon 3 weeks after our wedding, they all turned out wonderfully and we received all of the pictures. Jay even came to my henna party the Thursday before the wedding and took some amazing photos. We highly recommend him."
