Jason was such a delight to work with. We met exclusively over Zoom in the year leading up to our wedding. When we finally met in real life the day of, it felt like we had known each other for years. He put everyone at ease and was efficient. We were running late for the ceremony then we had only a few minutes to take family photos yet he managed to get all the photos anyway. By the time cocktail hour started he already had previews ready and displayed them on a monitor during the reception. What amazed me were the candid moments he was able to capture. Anyone can pose people. It takes a talented eye to spot the special shots that tell a bigger story.
There are not enough amazing things to say about Jay and how special he made our wedding day. From our engagement pictures to the last picture he snapped on our wedding day, he was professional, fun, and most importantly, extremely talented. We felt comfortable with him the minute we met and he captured every moment of our day beautifully. He was able to photograph the special, candid moments with ease and they are our favorite pictures we received. His second shooter was equally as talented and made the day that much more fun. My bridal party loved them both and talked for weeks about how great they were to work with. I even had someone reach out to me on Instagram asking who my photographer was because she wanted to use them for her own wedding! Don’t think twice about booking Jay to capture the most important day of your life. His talent and easy- going nature makes him the best to work with. He was our favorite vendor we worked with by far and I recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer. Thank you for everything Jay!
TL;but please read. So many things I could say about Jay! He was AMAZINGGG on our wedding day! Not only is he easy to work with and super nice, his photography skills are outstanding. We got a few photos at the end of the night of our ceremony which was such a special treat to see. I have a big and fairly rambunctious family and was worried about timing for our ceremony pictures but he was respectful yet timely with the whole process. Based on my tight schedule I didn’t think we’d have much time to take many good couple pictures, or so I thought. He was able to capture BEAUTIFUL pictures with the short time we had and he found a sliver of time to snag us out for sun setting pictures which I never thought about. I am so glad he did. He pays attention to details and was very patient with my family when I know they can be difficult. Thankful for that about Jay. We also had Jeremy as our second photographer with Jay and he was also very fun to work with! Our groomsmen were with him for the morning and they had nothing but great things to say about his personality and how easy and natural it was to have him there during the day. Both Jay and Jeremy were fun and laid back yet professional to have as photographers. It did not feel like random people telling us to take pictures because it’s their job but more like friends caring a lot about making sure they capture your best self on your special day. 100% recommend!!!
Jason is everything you would want in a photographer, he’s easy to work with, professional, has amazing work and is receptive to your wedding vision. Working with Jason during the pandemic, while having to reschedule everything made at least one part of our wedding planning easy. The pictures he took turned out beautiful and we were so lucky to have him capture our special day.
Jason is simply fantastic to work with and is worth every penny. Not only is Jason’s work as a photographer beautiful, he is cool, calm, and collected while taking pictures. Jason took our wedding pictures on a hot day at the end of July and you would never be able to tell from the looks of our pictures. What sets Jason apart from other photographers is his customer service. When you have a question, he answers right away — and with a perfect solution! Weddings can naturally be a stressful time for a bride and groom but with Jason, he is on your team. This is so important. We will always and forever recommend him.

Jason was so great to work with. He made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera by giving us cues instead of simply just posing us. We loved his photos from my sister-in-law’s wedding, and we knew we wanted him to take ours after we saw their photos and album. He was incredibly accommodating to our wedding schedule, and he was super professional with all of the COVID restrictions that were in place. We’re so glad we chose him!

WOW – is basically all I can say, but I’ll say more. Jason was very patient scheduling times with us and braved the cold.. and believe me, it was a COLD day. The pictures came out perfect, the whole experience was fun, and Jason has some creative techniques to get the most authentic smiles from his customers. HIGHLY recommend! I would give 7 stars if I could.

Jason is the best!!! Love working with him!! He captured our wedding so beautifully!!! All the moments – big and small, embarrassing, and hilarious, the genuine laughs and reactions – he got it all!! The day was overflowing with so much love, laughter, and fun and I can’t believe how many moments he was able to capture!! I feel like I get to relive the whole day forever now!!!

He made me and my girls feel so comfortable, confident, and beautiful! He’s great at leading and directing large groups and kids and getting everybody to the right spots at the right time! He’s punctual, timely and stays on top of the schedule. He’s an absolutely pro artistically!!! I mean, our wedding was beautiful but the pictures are just absolutely flawless!!! And most importantly, he’s just a great guy and so much fun to work with!!! He’s our family photographer for life!! Can’t thank you enough Jason!

Jay V Photography took our wedding photos and we couldn’t be happier! I found his photography through The Knot and checked out his recent work on the website too. It was clear through his work that his style was technical yet creative. We scheduled an engagement session (included with our wedding booking!) and found that Jason was so easy to work with. He does a great job directing photos without posing too much. He has a special skill at using natural lighting and catching the perfect moment. As for our wedding day, Jason was prompt and attentive. He took charge and got some really great shots. The pricing is very fair and his photography really captures the moment beautifully. That is priceless! We loved seeing sneak peeks of our pictures on social media after our sessions too! You can definitely trust Jason with your next photo needs!

Jason was fantastic! From our initial meeting and conversation to our engagement pictures to our big day, he always took the time to listen to what we wanted. The photos exceeded all of our expectations. Even on our big day, we experienced rain for about an hour and a half. Jason came prepared with several umbrellas and we honestly got some of the best photos of the night. He was always quick to answer any email or phone call. I would certainly recommend him!

I’m not sure who loved Jason more, us or our wedding guests! Everybody was raving about him after the wedding. He was so friendly, attentive and always there to capture the moment. He truly went above and beyond to capture the magic of the day. He made us feel so comfortable in front the camera, as if we were just hanging out with a friend. The photos that we’ve seen so far look incredible. He did an amazing job capturing the beauty of the venue, the people and the day. Thank you Jason!!

Jason did an amazing job with our engagement and wedding pictures! He knew where the best lighting was at the right time and was so great to work with!

We used Jay V photography for our wedding at city hall. Originally, my vision was just to capture the moment and get a few pictures with our parents before getting married in Cancun Mexico a couples weeks later. Jason had a better vision! We ended up going around downtown Chicago where he captured some of the most beautiful pictures. We loved the photos so much we used them to create a picture book as a gift for our parents on our wedding day. Jason is super professional, punctual, and is amazing behind the lens.

“Incredibly awesome photographer!! Wow! Loved our daughters wedding pictures and we will treasure them forever!!💕”
~ MOB; Miranda + Jimmy 10/13/18
From the moment we hired Jaosn until the end of our reception, he went above and beyond in ensuring we received quality pictures of our wedding. By noon the day after we had sample pictures to share with our family and friends. I would highly recommend Jason to anyone looking for a photographer and look forward to having him capture future moments for my family!

We couldn’t be any happier with Jason as our photographer. He was accommodating to our needs, gave us photo ideas to make sure we had all our basis covered, and was extremely professional. He was committed to providing us with the most beautiful photos from our Wedding day. Jason also happens to be an awesome person. He is a family person who is the opposite of the corporate feel, providing us with a great personal experience

Jason was a phenomenal photographer! He worked with us on our engagement photos all the way through our wedding and we couldn’t be happier! He took the time to get to know us to capture pictures that were not only very professional but showed our unique story as well. I would highly recommend! I still love looking back on the perfectly captured moments remembering such a perfect day ❤
