Nashville’s documentary wedding photographer
and headshot studio.



My name is Jay Farrell, I’m an East Nashville based documentary photographer, published author, and proprietor of Jay Farrell Photography. I have a rescue Boxer doggie named Miss Buttons. My early photography years were spent using film with street photography / photojournalism and fine art photography. . Today, I stay true to my roots with Fujifilm digital equipment and a unique documentary approach to wedding photography and engagement photos.

To stand out amongst the many talented Nashville wedding photographers, I showcase my true storytelling documentary and organic approach to wedding photography. My style hinges on observation over orchestration, focusing on the emotion, mood and true moments of each event. My photography and albums / print products are timeless, so you won’t have to explain anything embarrassing 20 years from now.

I have domestic and international education in photography with regards to lighting, subject psychology, moods and methods of capture. My work and methodology have been featured in many national blogs and publications. I’m also a published book author, featuring my urbex work that I’ve loved doing for over a decade!

Please look through my gallery, and we can chat more about documenting your amazing wedding day. I’m always happy to set up a phone call, or meet up for coffee or glass of wine. Personality and building relationships are important. I would enjoy getting to know you as a couple and answer any questions you have about me and my process. Oh, and to show you my fancy-shmancy sample wedding albums and wooden presentation boxes, like the ones that may very well end up on your coffee table one day! Delivered with signature Jay Farrell Photography style.
