Jay is an impossibly talented photographer. He’s intuitive, collaborative, and puts his heart into every project he works on. Can’t recommend him enough.

I have worked with Jay for personal and professional projects. He photographed my engagement shoot and the whole process was perfect. We got all the shots we wanted. Jay was patient and kind and creative and every time we laughed it was genuine. It was really easy to be ourselves around him. And our engagement pictures didn’t end up looking cookie cutter like everyone else’s. I feel like we got something that really captures us as a couple. That went so well, when it was time to do a photo shoot for my album cover I hired him again. I am a musician and it was fun to work together again for a totally different kind of shoot. He took all my ideas and brought them to life. Professional. Extremely talented. And always delivers a product I’m thrilled with. More...

Jay is an incredible artist and so easy to work with. While his usual niche is nature/adventure photography, he was willing to take my engagement pictures for me and my, then, fiancé. He made us feel so comfortable and our pictures look natural, candid, and exactly what we hoped for. Jay also had so many ideas for us, whether it was poses or venues, and took the time to listen to what we wanted, too. Our pictures came out beautifully and he made our experience fun and memorable. I would highly recommend calling Jay for any project you have, as he is not only wonderfully gifted, but artistically versatile. More...


Telling a story. Places and people are not static, they evoke emotion and create memories! Those elements must be captured in a way that is natural and can be remembered forever.

What result do YOU want to feel fulfilled once this shoot is over?

Seeing the joy that a good photograph can bring. There is no greater feeling than creating art from real moments, people and places.

I wanted to be able to live doing what I’m passionate about! Nothing in the world makes me happier than photography and I couldn’t imagine a life any other way.

I am dedicated to artistic form, and always willing to work through any desire a client has to create the most personal, meaningful photos possible. No cookie-cutter shot lists, I strive to make each shoot as unique as possible.


Specializing in a natural, organic feel, I strive to capture the emotion and personality of my clients to create fun and beautiful portraits that can be cherished forever. I rely heavily on the human interactions between my subjects, capturing the chemistry that already exists. When people see my photos of them, I want them to feel like they've never been more comfortable in front of a camera, or looked more like themselves in a photograph.
