We specialize in a photojournalistic approach to shooting your wedding, which means you'll have all the wonderful moments of your day -- putting your dress on, walking down the aisle, seeing your finace for the first time, cutting the cake -- all captured as they happen instead of having to pose for each moment. Our goal is to document your day as beautifully as possible while being as unobtrusive as possible. Of course we're happy to offer a portrait session, but even then, we'll keep things relaxed and quick so you can enjoy the day with your family and guests. Read less

We hired Jared as our wedding photographer, and I cannot recommend him enough. He was responsive, courteous, professional, and reasonably priced. The photos he created were stunning details of the wedding we now get to keep forever. We were so happy to have found Jared!

Jared is masterful with a camera. He captured our double wedding in memorable photos and delivered our photo CDs in record time. He was early to the venue and walked us toward the exit, even offering to hail a cab for us. Jared is talented and professional, and his warmth and kindness add special elements to the event. He will not disappoint, as he captures your most meaningful moments in lasting photo form.

We met Jared two summers ago when we were looking for someone to take our family photo (our son was 1 then). When we were finally able to get married this summer, we didn't hesitate to use J and J Photography. Jared is excellent! Because we have a three year old son, we didn't want to spend hours posing for photos. We did a few before the ceremony and then we were able to relax and enjoy the evening, knowing that Jared would be capturing everything. Not only does Jared take wonderful photos, but he is extremely nice and is able to put everyone at ease. Jared is simply the best!

Jean did a fabulous job on the makeup. We were even late coming back from the hair salon, and she was able to get everybody finished in time for our bus with fantastic results. If she was stressed with the time constraints, you would never have known it. She was sweet and calm the entire time, which allowed us to enjoy the morning.
Everybody's makeup was very natural, which matched the theme of our wedding. Everyone looked like the best version of themselves. In my mind, that is the mark of a top notch beautician.

J&J Photography (Jared Slater) photographed our wedding in September 2011 and I cannot say enough positive and glowing things about him! Quite simply, Jared is AMAZING at what he does!

I first heard of Jared through publicity surrounding his "Inequality in Marriage" discount that he provides to gay couples. While pricing was certainly a factor in choosing a photographer, it was more important to find the right match in photographic style and personality. Still, it was wonderful to see Jared taking such a strong stand on marriage equality. It intrigued me to learn more about him and his work.

From my initial phone call with him, I suspected he might be the right match. He was laid back, funny and was clearly passionate about photography. Plus, it was important to us that we get a natural, photo-journalistic style for the wedding; we did not want lots of posed pictures taken all day long. I also liked that Jared had lots of experience shooting for theater and headshots - this helps him know how to really capture subtle emotions.

When I finally met Jared in person, the decision was made. It was clear that Jared was the right fit personality and style wise. I had interviewed by phone over a dozen photographers and the decision of which to select was not even close!

A few months after booking Jared for the wedding (hint: he books up fast, so call him early!) my partner and I set up an engagement photo shoot in Central Park. This was an excellent way for us to get comfortable in front of the camera. And it was a good thing for us - I was much more uncomfortable at first than I expected, but Jared was great at warming us up and getting us relaxed. The pictures came out wonderfully!

Our weekend was held over a September weekend in the Finger Lakes and Jared photographed a dinner event, the ceremony and the reception. AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHS!!! He took incredible photos at a difficult-to-navigate ceremony (it was in a circle outdoors). He sped through (at our urging) the staged family photos pre-ceremony. And he captured a ton of great candid and emotional shots throughout the reception. We knew Jared would do a terrific job - the photos were better than we ever could have expected! And, just as important, Jared was a delight at the wedding! While he often was out-of-sight snapping away, our guests LOVED chatting with him. He is funny, engaging and friendly.

We have so many great memories now captured forever and have Jared to thank! I almost wish I could have another wedding just to work with Jared again!

Jared photographed our wedding. He was the BEST!! I can't say enough about him. He was professional, efficient, responsive, organized and graceful. He nimbly and elegantly moved through the crowd of guests without any notice and snapped the greatest shots. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. Don't give it another thought. Hire him! A & M

I can't say enough great things about Jared and J&J Photography. He was extremely communicative and collaborative from day one. My fiance and I were looking for a photographer to capture the special moments of the day (rather than solely focusing on portraits)and we couldn't be happier with our wedding photos! Jared wasn't pushy or intrusive at all. We were so pleasantly surprised by some moments he captured-- we never knew he was taking them! I would recommend J&J Photography in a heart beat.

My husband and I wanted a wedding that was going to be more a party than the usual sit-down dinner, with some dancing in the mix. Therefore, we wanted a photographer who was going to be able to capture the energy of the night without posing people for pictures. Jared was perfect. For a huge portion of reception, I would only see a fragment of him out of the corner of my eye. The glimpse of a lens here, his black shirt there. But I felt like I never really saw him. And then I saw the pictures and felt that perhaps it was time to get my eyes checked. Apparently, he had been everywhere. His pictures captured our entire event, the people in the pictures looked fantastic and we have more memories caught on digital film than I ever would have imagined.
In the planning phases, he was flexible and easy to work with. We told him what we wanted to do, pictures in the city beforehand, followed by a few posed pictures prior to the reception and then we wanted pictures of our celebration. What we wanted was exactly what we got. He even scouted out some locations for our candid pre-ceremony shots, and then was willing to just walk around and let the locations come to us.
I would recommend Jared to anyone I know. He was professional, courteous and we had a great time working with him.
