“Jay is a great photographer and an even better guy! We first met him when we scheduled an engagement session. There was a snow storm a couple days before the scheduled date. When the day came it was freezing with still a lot of snow on the ground. Jay stuck to his word and we got a snowy engagement session. It was beautiful! We loved his work so much that we chose him to do our wedding. Great results! Highly recommend this guy.”
“Jay is an outstanding, well-seasoned, professional wedding photographer. From the moment my wife and I checked out his website, we were all for booking him to capture our special day. He will blend in with your guests, like a fly on the wall, and you will receive so many photos that make you wonder: how did he get that shot? He’s a professional, and he knows exactly what to do and how to do it. Excellent turn around time on photo delivery, and the photo album included in any of the packages is the perfect way to reflect on your nuptials. I highly recommend him for anyone getting married in the Nashville area or nearby metro areas. I’m not sure if you consider Bowling Green, KY a metro area, but that’s where my wife and I live and where we hosted our wedding. Jay was more than glad to hit the road and join us in Kentucky with his assistant to capture every moment we needed to be documented. ”

“After conducting an online search of Nashville’s GLBT- friendly photographers, Jay appeared to be the best and matched the style we were looking for. We knew we wanted our photographs to tell the story of our wedding. After consulting with Jay, we were confident he was the top photographer. He captured those perfect moments of our wedding and our guests. His ability to creatively capture “the moment”—with all its emotion— is a skill that Jay has obviously honed well. His communication throughout the entire process was exceptional! We received our finished photographs in a timely manner. After having used his services, I would – without a doubt – recommend him! Thanks, Jay!”
“Jays work was outstanding and professional. He really knows how to capture the moment, provide good direction, and stay organized throughout the event. I don’t think our special day could have been captured any better. When we got our photos we could not be more happier. If anyone was to ask me about a photographer Jay Farrell Photography will be my first recommendation and would definitely use him in the future.”
“Planning a last minute wedding had me at the mercy of the internet to try to find a photographer quickly. Luckily, I found Jay’s website and was completely in love with his journalistic style of wedding photography. The pictures turned out fantastic. He captured the true feel of the day. He was fantastic to work with and I got my pictures quickly. I would recommend Jay to anyone who does not want stuffy wedding pictures.”

“We had a beautiful country wedding with amazing fall trees/leaves and vintage appeal. The pictures that Jay took unbelievably capture our moment! Jay brought our entire wedding story to life. As I flip through the pictures it embraces how the day unfolded picture by picture. I am so glad that Jay was available to shoot our wedding, our pictures and memories will always be shaped by his unique style and excitement. Furthermore, Jay simply loves photography and pleasing his customers. I didn’t feel like a customer, but a friend to Jay who took in our ideas and his vision and made our wedding a vibrant memory. The one comment I keep getting when family and friends view the pictures is WOW what a great job Jay did!!!! He’s amazing!!! And yes you only get married once, but I will certainly use him for family and baby pictures one day soon. Thank you thank you JAY!!!!”

“I absolutely love Jay. He did our engagement photos and our wedding. We were very pleased with him from the very first meeting. He was very professional. My husband was the one that had final say over our photographer and immediately after meeting with Jay, my husband said to hire him. He makes you feel at ease and he listens to what you want. His photography packages were the best we could find anywhere. We got exactly what we wanted at superb quality for a fantastic value. I would recommend Jay to anyone. I will definitely use him again in the future. I love the fact that he maintains a connection with his clients even after the job is done. I know I can contact him at any time for any questions or concerns. He was more than our photographer. We consider him a friend. Thanks Jay for capturing our love and happiness.”

“Jay photographed both our engagement session and our wedding. I absolutely loved our engagement photos, he was very creative and was easy to work with. He stayed in contact with us throughout the entire process. Our wedding photos turned out great and he captured the wedding beautifully. I would highly recommend.”
“Outstanding is what Jay Farrell’s photography is. He’s easy to work with, and very professional. Listens to what you have to say. Jay shot my brother’s wedding last year- the photos were spectacular. Pictures weren’t regular & boring- they had attitude & flare. I knew after seeing my brother’s photos that when I got married he would be the one to capture my moment. When the time came for my wedding Jay was right there & made sure the photos were everything I dreamed them to be. My photos came & of course they were AH- mazing. I cried and thanked him over & over. I will always use Jay Farrell photography. He also shot my family’s Christmas party- wonderful as well. I am about to have a baby & he is going to shoot some maternity photos too. The prices are realistic & worth every cent. He has always went above & beyond to make things perfect. Has great turn around time.”

“Jay did a fantastic job shooting our wedding. It took place at a local art mill, which I can’t imagine was the easiest place to set up. He did extremely well with, what I assume, was challenging lighting. There were lots of amazing shots and a few that make my wife tear up to this day.”
“Jay! Thank you so much for shooting my brother and sister-n-law’s wedding! The photos were my gift to the bride and groom..so having the photos reflect how very special that day was to our family was the most important to me and you made that happen for us! Your attention to detail and your patience was most appreciated- you do such amazing work! I cannot wait for future events as you will be first on the list! Thanks!”
“Jay did a wonderful job at our wedding. Excellent quality photographs. He was able to capture great shots which was very fortunate as our videographer was not able to film. Jay is very professional and would listen to what you like at the same time give suggestions. He also did our family portrait the following year and got great pictures. Now that we have a new baby, I’ve asked Jay to do portraits for us again as I am very confident that I would get amazing pictures. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!!!”
“I chose Jay for my headshots. He has a great eye and did a fantastic job of capturing the look I was going for. The turnaround time was quick, which was a big plus. An all around talented professional who is open to collaboration. So bring your ideas and communicate and you’re sure to have a wonderful session. I would certainly choose him again in the future when I need to update my book.”
“From beginning to end Jay was extremely helpful, kind, and professional. I enjoyed working with him and couldn’t be happier w/ the final product! Jay wasn’t just there to snap photos he was there to capture a story. He captured heart & soul. When I look at the pictures he took I am reminded of the beautiful day I had and all the love that surrounds me.
Jay and his assistant were extremely punctual. They arrived early and started taking photos right away. When his time was up and there were still things happening he kept shooting. He captured candids with a photojournalistic style, but also put together artistic staged shots.
He knew it was very important for me to get photos of my fiances grandparents at the wedding. a couple weeks before the wedding I informed him that our Granny B had grown ill. He offered (w/o ever mention $) to come take some photos w/ her ahead of time. I declined b/c she was so sick, but my point is that move took heart. He truly cared about our needs.
I can’t say enough about Jay. If you are considering him for your photography needs I recommend you set up a time to meet with him. You wont regret it!!”
“First comes love, second comes marriage etcetera, etcetera. Well, not really if you’re lucky, an engagement falls in there somewhere. At least that’s how it happened for me. I met my fiancée’ out of the blue and it was what you might call a whirlwind romance. Within a week of meeting her, I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life loving her. She’s about as perfect for me as I could have ever prayed for. In less than months, I bought the ring, she accepted, we were engaged and had the wedding date set for November of 2012. So, in my world it’s more like ‘First comes love, then comes ring, then engagement pictures, then comes wedding pictures’ –But I’m a photographer. –now, I’m also a fiancée’.
Guess what, my fiancée’ wanted pictures to document our engagement in pictures. Did I mention that I’m a photographer? I don’t like having my picture taken. Go figure. That’s how it all began. I’ve known Jay Farrell for several years now; we respect each others’ work. Have met multiple times for lunch and swapped war stories and bragging rights and the like about this or that job or session and how we might make it better next time.. Well, having your picture taken is a serious undertaking when it’s as important as your engagement and more importantly; when it’s your wedding and finding the perfect fit in a photographer is paramount to documenting the memories that you will want to remember for a lifetime.
My fiancée had seen Jay’s work from our interaction on Facebook and subsequently, his website and she became a fan, and I wasn’t even jealous. So when she suggested I talk with him about shooting our engagement session and he accepted the assignment of photographing another photographer, I was as excited as I could get about the ‘ordeal’ We met with Jay and shared ideas and concepts, which is something I always prefer to do myself before a session, and I would urge anyone to do as well when selecting their own photographer. We came up with a few great concepts and set the date and prayed the weather would cooperate. It did.
On the day of the shoot we met and went over the larger details and left the rest to timing and skill. Through the session I have to say Jay was great. Almost as great as I would have been! (just kidding, Jay) He was as professional as he was cordial, if not jovial! His personality and professionalism accomplished the one thing that I try to succeed in myself, make yourself invisible, make your shots one of a kind, make the memories that the client will want to hold on to for a lifetime.”
