About Nashville Wedding Photographer Jay Farrell

Hi! I’m Jay Farrell, of Jay Farrell Photography, based in East Nashville. I am one of the few Nashville wedding photographers doing true documentary / photojournalist style wedding photography. My engagement photos have the same natural feel and thought process. Below are some key points about documentary / journalistic style wedding photography.

-I won’t take over your special day. Or be the bossy photographer taking up the couples’ and guests’ time. I use an organic fly on the wall approach to capture the love, energy and fun that naturally happen at weddings.

-It’s about human observation and anticipating those memorable moments and expressions, then capturing it. I also provide the formal group / posed portraits you want, in a relatively brief time. This benefits you because minimal time is spent away from your guests, and there’s more time for me to document the real candid fun moments that I am known for.

-The best compliment I receive from my clients is that the moments I documented, some they didn’t see or remember it happening. And that they hardly noticed I was even there!
