Hello, I'm Jay Collier

I'm obsessed with your story

I’m a creative at heart, always have been, it’s a mindset more than it is a job. I take a great amount of joy in telling the stories of others.

My style of photography is patient and observant. I focus on candid moments and timeless expressions, the stuff you can’t just pose, you just have to be there.

If you ask any of my past clients, they’ll tell you I like to keep a comfortable atmosphere. You don’t have to model, just be yourself!

We had a small wedding on a sail boat and had Jay as our photographer. Overall, we're happy to say that our experience working with him was a solid 10/10. He was prompt, punctual, and professional. He has an easy going personality and is spectacular at capturing the most beautiful candid shots. We received our photos (MANY photos) a week after the wedding and all of them came out absolutely amazing. We would 100% recommend Jay to anyone for any occasion.

Words cannot express how truly amazing our experience was with Jay! My now husband and I had to postpone our wedding until next summer due to covid-19, but decided we still wanted to get married on our original date (June 12, 2020) in an intimate ceremony with just our immediate families. We contacted Jay two days before our ceremony and not only was he extremely prompt and responsive, but so friendly and flexible regarding our situation. The day of our ceremony, he was on location before we were and had the most chill, relaxed vibe that, as a bride in the middle of a pandemic, was so comforting. During the ceremony, I felt at ease knowing that he was behind the camera and I was able to just enjoy getting married. Afterwards, he was extremely efficient and thorough getting photos of us both with our family and by ourselves, but did so in a way that felt very organic and natural! He also indulged all of our photo requests without hesitation. If that wasn't enough, he then had our gallery ready in just two days!!! I am still absolutely blown away with how beautiful all of our photos are and getting millions of complements on the amazing quality of the photos! Jay perfectly captured the happiest moment of our lives and we will cherish these photos forever! I hope we get to work with Jay again in the future and would 100% recommend his services to anyone looking for a photographer!

Jay shot our wedding and we are BLOWN AWAY by the photos. Jay has an incredible eye for catching moments and brings out the absolute best, most authentic self in his subjects. I'm not the most comfortable in front of the camera and Jay makes you forget that he's even there. My groom and I had a blast shooting with him and I have never experienced that with a photographer before. He captures the classic moments beautifully and also has a special gift for taking creative and stunning shots. If you want gorgeous, meaningful, artistic photos for your wedding (or any special day), you have to book Jay! I wish I could get married again just to have him take more pictures!
