About Nashville Wedding Photographer Jay Farrell

If you’re a couple looking for a non-intrusive experience, and enjoy photographs that masterfully document your story, hello! Offering true documentary / photojournalist wedding photography and being one of the most unique Nashville wedding photographers has allowed me the privilege to serve and tell the stories of many couples. My engagement photos have the same natural feel and thought process.

Below are some key points about documentary / journalistic style wedding photography.

Why Choose Documentary Photography

I won’t take over your special day. Or be the bossy photographer taking up the couples’ and guests’ time. An organic fly on the wall approach captures the love, energy and fun that naturally happen at weddings. Un-posed with the exception of a few portrait groups.

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 they hardly noticed I was even there!

Jay, these are amazing!! I absolutely love what you’ve done for us!! What a beautiful collection? I cannot thank you enough!ā€
