About

Hello, my name is Jay.
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.

If you need a photographer, Jay is the one to hire. From the moment I booked my appointment, he was on it. Jay finalized and thought of every little detail from wardrobe, lighting, music, and bites all to ensure I had the best shoot possible. He was professional, friendly, on time, and thoughtful. I was nervous, but Jay put me at ease and made the whole process comfortable and fun!! Now let’s talk about the GORGEOUS headshots he took. I am talking the best I’ve ever looked! He is a truly talented photographer, and does amazing work. By far, the best experience I have ever had with a photographer! More...

I have used Jay Knight Photography on several occasions from my professional head shot, to my daughter's princess photos, and soon to be son's graduation photos. Jay is an outstanding photographer! He is patient, creative, and always brings out the best in he’s subjects. I cannot imagine going with anyone else. More...

I really enjoyed my experience with Jay Knight Photography. Jay had so many good suggestions and I loved the direction we decided to take. Kelly was fantastic! Such a pro.

Jay has such an artistic eye for maximizing the use of elements in any environment as well as providing fun extras like colored lights, powders and smoke bombs. He’s personable and easy to work with and ensures you’re satisfied with the variety of shots he’s taken before ending the session.

My experience with Jay Knight Photography was nothing short of amazing! I was very impressed with the process from the consultation to the presentation. During the actual shoot, I felt comfortable and I was walked through every shot with intricate detail. I can be a very shy person but during the shoot I was not shy and was having tons of fun. Also, the whole process is extremely organized. Jay really is a true professional and makes sure that you're taken care of from beginning to end. I hadn't done a photoshoot in a while, and I did a branding shoot for my business. The pictures turned out amazing! Jay really captured my personality that I wanted to convey when using these photos for business marketing. I absolutely love the full service he offers of putting together a photo album with your photos, or even if you want wall art. Jay is very organized, detailed and I can tell that he has been doing this for a long time, his experience shows! More...

Where do I start?! I can easily sum this up in one word... Outstanding! But there is so much more to be said! When I first set out to find "The" right photographer for my son and future daughter-in-law's wedding, I spent hours and hours searching on the internet across the entire North Texas region. Being a photographer myself, I am extremely picky and critical when it comes to photography and I knew it was not going to be easy to find the right one. I talked to friends and other photographers as well to get their thoughts and recommendations. When I first saw Jays work, I was pretty sure that I had found what I was looking for. Clear and sharp photos with a good balance of Artistic, Traditional, and Journalistic styles. It was obvious to me that he knew how to capture the very heart and soul of a wedding and deliver that in his photos. After meeting with Jay I made the decision to hire him for Cameron and Kenzie's day and knew I had made the right choice from the start! Jay and Kelly make an incredible team and their work is awesome and speaks for itself! They are a pleasure to work with and I would have no reservations at all in highly recommending them to anyone. Very professional, they know what they are doing, and their work is simply outstanding! Thank you both for doing such an incredible job in capturing all of the special moments on Cameron and Kenzie's special day! More...

Jay and Lauren photographed my wedding, they did a FANTASTIC job! They got amazing candid shots that really showed how much our wedding was and also great posed shots. We are so pleased with how everything turned out! Thank you both! More...

19 December 2023

Jay and Kelly just did my wedding. They also were the ones who did my engagement and bridals. Which turned out so great! They worked so well for me because on my wedding day Kelly would work with me and my girls and Jay worked with the guys. They are full of personality and so incredibly sweet. I heard nothing but good things about them on my wedding day! I can't wait to see the beautiful pictures that they took that day.
I also plan on using them throughout the special moments in our lives for photo shoots (maternity, newborn, family). I recommned them to anyone looking for a great photographer!

Jay Knight Photography is absolutely great. My wife and I could not be more pleased with their service, professionalism, prices and products. . We have used them for several sessions and it is always a great experience and outcome. I have been involved in several weddings etc in the past and have seen multiple photographers and how they operate. Jay is heads and shoulders above any of the others I have ever experienced. They don't feel like outsiders taking pictures, they feel like friends capturing your best moments. More...

Jay and Kelly are amazing! We did an engagement shoot with them at White Rock Lake and the pictures came out perfect! They had a zillion ideas when we didn't know what to do and were extremely helpful and professional. We also got our entire gallery back in less than a week, which amazed me! Use them! More...

We were so lucky to have Jay Knight Photography photograph our wedding. Jay and Kelly are top notch photographers who not only have an incredible eye for amazing photos, but are also extremely friendly, attentive, and organized in the face of wedding day chaos. I'm blown away by how many high quality pictures we received. There were hundreds! Jay and Kelly bring a passion to this work that you can tell translates into an admirable work ethic.

I was lucky enough to have Jay and Kelly shoot at our wedding last month, and I couldn't have picked anyone better if I tried. We just received our pictures and they are BEAUTIFUL! They were so easy to work with and work so well together that we basically got two photographers for the price of one. I have zero complaints, and I will continue to use Jay Knight Photography for any future photography needs. Do not hesitate...BOOK THEM NOW!

Totally pleased with the beautiful pictures that Jay and Kelly took for our wedding. He truly listened to the things we desired and worked hard to put us in the right location both indoors and out with the right lighting and recommendations on how to put us all together. He truly worked hard to put our new family in all the right places to take the best pictures!

We had a great expericance with Jay and Kelly, It was really important for us to have two photographers capture our wedding. Jay really worked with our budget and took some amazing photos. This was not his first rodeo, he directed our wedding party effectively and you can see that he is a perfectionist. Jay really wanted to capture the best photos possible. We were lucky to have been able to hire him for our wedding. More...

Jay and Lauren are fantastic! We use them for our Gentle Creek Life Magazine and have loved their work. So, I asked if they'd have an opening to do both our son's [on-location] senior and family pictures, and my daughter's formal doctoral portraits. They worked with us on timing and location; they knew what locations made for the best backdrops. The pictures were all stunning; Lauren certainly knows how to frame her shots so that the subject(s) are the focus, but that the framing has interest! Furthermore, Jay met with us afterwards to review the pictures, did the retouching, sent us the retouched proofs, and did a spectacular job keeping us all looking natural while still fixing the blemishes and shadowing issues perfectly.

Jay was absolutely amazing. He had many ideas for poses and was great at instructing my family on the best way to stand, hold our heads, etc. .. The pictures that he took were also equally amazing.

Thanks Jay for a truly wonderful experience! More...

I found Jay through a Google search and after looking through his bark account I knew I wanted to work with him. I am so happy I did. He really took time to understand my vision and picked out the most beautiful spot for our session. During the session he was very professional but also friendly and personable.

Jay and his assistants Kelly and Lauren’s work is absolutely incredible! We first met up with him at a Starbucks to go over details, see if we were interested. The whole time felt like we were visiting with a friend. He is so funny and smart and we hit it off immediately. My husband and I already decided before we made it to the car! We text him right then and said ‘ok you’re it!’ Jay kept in contact, took all my crazy ideas and pictures I flooded his email with and listened to me vent about any areas I was worried about. Our conversations ended, every time, with me feeling much more calm. Day of he was amazing. Let me know he was there, had my list of shots I wanted and helped us have such a fun easy day. After getting our pictures, he and his team were like ninjas!! He got everything I told him I wanted and also shots that, since the wedding, I was hoping I’d get! There is not one ounce of disappointment regarding anything he did! I want to get married every year now. Lol Thank you!! More...
