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!

I cannot begin to explain how happy I am with the decision to book Jay for our photos!!! His work really spoke for itself and the photos online looked amazing! After meeting Jay and working with him I can honestly say we couldnt have made a better pick! 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. The website is easy to order from and view the photos on as well! I am so happy I will he using Jay for any photos we need forever!

Jay is amazing! He is so sweet, fun, and kind. He met with me before the ceremony and gave me tips for good pictures and did a great job making me feel comfortable. He was flexible and really worked with my family and I to get the shots and candids I wanted for the big day. I would recommend him to any bride looking for someone to catch each moment and each smile. Thank you so much for everything, Jay!

Old reviews I still love sharing. -Jay

Very beautiful photos!!! I hired Jay to pose as a tourist while I proposed to my now fiancé at Florida Caverns. He did a beautiful job staying candid and the photos are all gorgeous even in the low lighting.

Jay photographed our wedding on Hilton Head Island in June and was nothing short of amazing. He was professional and diligent, but at the same time really fun and easy going. When the wedding itself got started I hardly noticed him and his team there. The photos reflect the feeling of the day perfectly and are a beautiful mix of portrait, action, and artistic shots. I highly recommend Jay and his team!

Jay was awesome to work with from the beginning all the way to the end. He is very professional and was quick to answer my questions and emails/phone calls/texts. My husband and I are so happy with our engagement and wedding photos- we will cherish them forever. Thank you, Jay!!

Jay is an amazing photographer! He is also very professional and responds quickly. We absolutely loved working with him. 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!

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

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.

Jay was just wonderful! He gave me picture tips prior to the wedding. He captured the beauty of the day in every picture! I absolutely loved every single picture. His rates are the best I have found in Jacksonville area. We were married on the beach and with his pictures we can see our love for each other and the beach everyday! He also took pictures of our kids that are to die for! Jay thank you so much!

Jay was very attentive in shooting our wedding. After the reception, many guests came to me and commented on how good the photographer was! My husband and I plan on hiring him again for family portraits in the future, Thank you Jay!

We had an Amazing engagement session. He knows the best spots, how to use the scenery, and catch moments I wouldn’t think of. Plus, he is super easy to work with and made it fun. We highly recommend Jay Grubb Photography.
