Jay and his assistant Roddy are absolutely AMAZING. From our engagement photos to the wedding and ceremony, we couldn't have asked for more. Both Jay and Roddy felt more like friends than vendors almost immediately. Jay even got my husband, who HATES taking photos, to smile... Read More during a 3-hour engagement session taken all over New Orleans. He has a great eye and is amazingly friendly, and he actually asked us what we wanted and if certain ideas were "OK." He wasn't afraid to try different things either. He got preview photos back to us within a couple of days, and we're already impressed, so much so that I've already referred him to two other brides-to-be. He was also reasonable, pricewise, with a lot of different package options.

Jay is such an AMAZING photograher! I would give him 100 stars if I could. His work is so beautiful, he was really fun to work with and he felt more like a friend than a vendor. Jay did our engagement and wedding photos. He made us feel really comfortable and was very discreet... Read More during those special, private moments between my husband and I. He also had a partner who worked with him for our wedding, so we got a two for one deal! His prices are really great too.

We will definitely be using him again and I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Jay and Roddy!
