I spoke to several photographers before finding JBM Weddings and I knew the second I spoke to Jake that JBM was “the one." Jake is flexible, creative and super talented. I expressed some of the fun (unique) ideas I had months in advance of our wedding and Jake made it a point to make it all happen! His energy is awesome and he is the exact person you want to be there with you on your wedding day.

Jake KILLED IT!! His work is amazing and beyond anything I could have expected. JBM weddings really redefines wedding photography and doesn't just capture a wedding but captures an entire story and the feelings felt by everyone that day. Jake captured so much emotion on everyone and everything; I laughed and cried just looking at the photos.

We feel very lucky to have not only beautiful, artistic photos but also an awesome story of our whole weekend. We used Jake for both our rehearsal dinner and wedding day and love the continuity between the days work while still providing a unique feel for each event. JBM's work is unique yet classic; I know that in 50 years I'll look back and still love everything. I can't wait to print and frame and share and post and send to all of our friends and family.

Jake had some massive fans at our wedding. All of our guests loved him! He was never intrusive and was so incredibly friendly and warm to everyone. He also guided me through the entire day, and really helped the day stay on schedule in such a calming way. We are very grateful for that.

Brian and I are both very happy with Jake (and of course Falcon!) and the beautiful work. We couldn't have asked for anything more and we know the day wouldn’t have been the same without Jake there! We are so happy and feel overwhelming gratitude to Jake & his team.

My fiance and I recently hired JBM Weddings to shoot engagement photos for us, and I cannot say enough good things about them! We were originally going to forego engagement photos altogether because we feel they often come out contrived, but when I saw JBM Weddings' booth at an SF wedding fair we changed our minds. Their work had exactly the feeling we were looking for. We worked with one of their west coast photographers, Erin Prado, who did an AMAZING job and made us feel super comfortable. I sent Erin some examples of photos I liked before our shoot, and she was really thoughtful about giving our shots a similar look. We hired our wedding photographer months ago, but if I had met Erin before that we would totally hire her. Thank you Jake and Erin for a great experience! We will definitely be calling you again.

We cannot say enough wonderful words about JBM wedding services! Jake and Ash were sincere, easy to correspond with and grasped our vibe immediately. Jake photographed and Ash did hair and make-up for our wedding in Davis Park, Fire Island. They were both a pleasure to work with. Jake was energetic (he seriously worked tirelessly), bouncing from place to place to capture me and my husband, our family and the surrounding environment. For us, being the center of attention was a bit stressful and unnatural, but Jake continuously put us at ease. It was obvious through his passionate demeanor and the photos themselves that Jake really cared about our special location and us. He went above and beyond; patiently assembling our large family (including my 92 year old grandma and lots of youngsters), jumping into the brush to snap a great shot, even making sure the not-supposed-to-be-plain cake was decorated with flowers and holding onto our sunglasses when we had no place to put them. On such an adrenaline-filled, momentous day, these acts were invaluable. Ash enhanced the ladies’ looks without overdoing it – we felt like more beautiful versions of ourselves, which was exactly what we had hoped for. Jake took photos that truly highlighted our love of Fire Island; the rustic town, shabby-chic cottages, far-reaching boardwalk and shoreline, and the breathtaking views. They also connected us with an awesome DJ last minute when we were in a panic! But what we are most grateful for is the fact that the team helped us feel very relaxed and happy on our wedding day - and it is without a doubt visible in the photos. We have amazing memories and now we have fantastic pictures that will be cherished forever. We highly recommend JBM wedding services. Jake and Ash are fabulous!

We loved Jake's work and knew he was the one for us as soon as we saw his photos on the website. His journalistic background really comes through in the way his photos tell a story. We looked at a lot of different photographers in the NYC area and not everyone can do that. It really is a unique and special gift that Jake has.

We loved Jake's work and knew he was the one for us as soon as we saw his photos on the website. His journalistic background really comes through in the way his photos tell a story. We looked at a lot of different photographers in the NYC area and not everyone can do that. It really is a unique and special gift that Jake has.

Jake from JBM Weddings is an absolute pleasure and my husband and I cannot stop talking about how amazing he is. Our wedding guests also continue to gush about our stellar photographer.

Jake is the kindest, most easy-going and incredibly genuine individual.

In addition to being an all-around awesome guy he’s also one of the most talented photographers I have ever met. He takes the most gorgeous in the moment photographs that aren’t posed or staged, all the while making you feel comfortable in front of the lens so that the true beauty and emotion of the day shines through.

Jake was able to capture the natural joy, love and excitement of our day in every image. Each time we look back at the photos we are instantly transported back to one of the happiest days of our lives.

We honestly cannot thank Jake enough from the priceless images he has given us.

Good news! You can stop your photographer search because you've found JBM, who are the best. Jake was awesome throughout the whole process, equally accommodating our requests while also suggesting ideas and sharing his expertise. He made myself and my wife feel very comfortable throughout the process. Perhaps most impressive, when time got tight he assured us that we were fine, made a few necessary changes, and still ended up getting stunning photos of us in what could have been a stressful and unfortunate situation. We couldn't be happier.

The minute I met Jake, I needed him to be my wedding photographer! Jake is relaxed, extremely likable, and most importantly, a good listener. And I could tell he loves weddings! With a journalistic background of our own, and the fact that my groom is not comfortable being a poser, we connected with Jake even more during our engagement shoot. Having a photographer that actually prefers to capture true candid moments of love, family and friendship made taking photos on our wedding day a natural experience. His second shooter, John, was spot on too! Looking back, Jake genuinely wanted for us to feel the magic of becoming a married couple without realizing we were being photographed. Jake's photos are more than wedding portraits - they are works of art!

My husband and I were underwhelmed with the wedding photography we found online so we attended a Wedding Crashers event just two months before our December 2013 wedding. Even then, we felt discouraged visiting each photography table because they were all missing that certain something. Nothing felt like "us". That was of course, until we found JBM! Immediately the presentation of the JBM booth clicked with us and as soon as we thumbed through photos and later browsed the website we were ecstatic. We had found our photographer! We just had to convince Jake of that. And luckily he's a super nice guy, so it wasn't hard. He really enjoys helping his clients and you can't beat that! He was super accommodating with our day-of timeline and helped us get everything we wanted out of the day (which included two locations and a loooooong walk in between on a cold winter's day).
We received a ton of compliments about our photographer after our wedding (before anyone had even seen photos!) which I am pretty sure doesn't usually happen?! Jake was very respectful of our space, but always there to get great shots and never obtrusive. And, of course once we got our photos back, we were beyond thrilled. They are amazing. Everything we'd hoped for. We feel extremely lucky and grateful that Jake was our wedding photographer. Can't say enough great stuff about JBM!

JBM was such a pleasure to work with. From the very beginning, Jake was super responsive. On the day of our wedding, our day took place in different locations but the photographer, John, was completely unfazed through it all. He was easy going and accommodating. It was clear that he was seasoned. Also, he was a genuinely nice guy!

The photos speak for themselves. We were very much drawn to the photojournalistic aesthetic of their photos. We are still awaiting the final set but we couldn't be happier with the preview images we've seen so far.

The search perfect for the wedding photographer for me was the hardest wedding essential. My fiancé, now husband works in the film industry so let's just say he was more then picky about who would take our wedding photos. We originally were going to give our other photographer friends/film maker friends the responsibility, but what's the best part of a wedding, the open bar....we knew we wanted our friends to fully enjoy our wedding.
Thus the search began. Hours of searching wedding blogs, reading reviews and a whole lot of "no way" from my now husband. In the end I emailed a handful of photographers I had been given a "yes" on and heard back from all of them, but Jake was special, he understood our vision, got my sarcastic sense of humor and most importantly my husband was willing to meet with him. Upon our first meeting at cozy Brooklyn restaurant I knew we were meant to be and have him our deposit immediately. He and my husband were able to nerd out over shooting with film while I pretended to care, mean while I was won over by his amazing photography. Jake was our guy!
He couldn't have made things any easier, he sat us down we talked about our vision set a game plan of who, what, where, etc., Jake made the whole process incredibly enjoyable and in NO way stressful. It was amazing! On my wedding day he continued to impress, my husband and I had mentioned a gorgeous spot off a random road we wanted to meet at for our first meeting. Jake did the leg work himself, scouted the entire thing out. At our wedding venue he made the whole process incredibly creative and intimate, he wanted to make sure we had everything we wanted, it was all about us. I can't speak highly enough of JBM Photography, we went from originally spending nothing on photography because we could do it better, to hiring an AMAZING photographer as a result we have priceless memories coupled with a truly amazing experience.

My husband and I worked with Jake for both our engagement and wedding photos. The work that he produced is truly second to none. The wedding album was absolutely beautiful, unique, and each picture was an individual piece of art. My husband and our families were truly impressed with his photography skills and the way in which he captured our wedding night. I have seen oh so many wedding albums posted on the web- all of them are generic and often times just run of the mill- however, what Jake created is quite the opposite. We could not be more THRILLED to have chosen to have worked with him. On top of all this, he is a genuinely awesome person, showed up on time, and always exuded a cool, calm demeanour. Would work with him again and recommend him in a heartbeat!

Everything about Jake's approach to our day was perfect. From first meeting all the way through our wedding + the bonus shoot the day after, he was a real pleasure to work with. He was more than happy to travel to Maine for our wedding, and we are very glad he did. He worked around our preparations and every little activity we had going on - he was able to capture the casual moments perfectly and make everything look natural and fun. Jake got all of our "must-have" shots without any difficulty and he was also very excited about the unusually creative things we had in mind. The teaser shots we've seen so far are perfect and exactly the style we were hoping for. We can't wait to see the rest.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Jake. I've known Jake for many years, but not until recently as a wedding photographer and was thrilled to hear that he was available for our wedding. I've known for quite some time what a great person Jake is and got to see first hand what an incredible photographer he is too!

From the second we began communicating with Jake, more than 10 months before our wedding, he was a pleasure to work with. Always responsive and flexible and willing to go above and beyond in every facet of his work.

The day of our wedding, the weather was a little touch and go, and Jake was so positive and optimistic about getting wonderful photos no matter what - it made my husband and I not even the least bit concerned. He worked so very hard that day, to capture every special moment, every candid smile all while remaining calm, professional and so so passionate about his work. I even have a very vivid picture in my mind of Jake directing our bus drive through the east side of the Bronx, to get us to the Botanical Garden on time so we could get our pictures in.

Our photos that we have seen so far, are incredible! The reactions from people we share them with respond, "were these in a magazine?!"

From start to finish and from the AMAZING photos Jake produces, I cannot express enough gratitude to JBM for (being part of and) capturing the most important day of our lives so beautifully!

Its hard to trust reviews that give all 5s....no one is that good!?- right?!

WRONG!

Jake and John were perfect. It can be hard to feel comfortable when you're getting your picture taken for hours but after two minutes, we forgot they were even there! Thats how much they blended in. They made my husband and I feel so relaxed in front the camera and i felt so confident that every amazing moment would be captured.

Friends kept coming up to me saying how they loved how friendly and unobtrusive our photographer was and how comfortable he made them feel. How often are your friends talking about the awesomeness of the photographer?!

We just got the first pictures and couldn't be more excited. Jake got the perfect balance of the standard wedding pictures that we wanted (the family portraits, the couple pictures) and the candid shots that show the sheer energy and happiness of the affair. Every picture tells a different story and he somehow was able to avoid cheesey...even at the cheesiest parts of the wedding!

Jake has a really amazing eye, finding such magnificent angles, lending to an epic-ness of each picture.

I want to share these pictures with the world!!!

I don't know what I can say about Jake's photos that the photos themselves don't already say.

Go to his website. Click on a few photos and scroll through slowly. Pour a cup of tea. Enjoy.

How did we feel about our photos? We love them. His style is so unique and unlike typical cheesy wedding photos. He tells a story with his photos in such a great way.

What I can comment on is his service. He's a great guy. He is accommodating, he is professional, punctual, light hearted, funny. Great.

We have only seen the "teaser" photos from our wedding (about 100, given to us less than a month after) and literally can't wait to see the whole set.

If we got married 100 times over, we would hire Jake for 100 of those times.

In fact, we considered inviting him on our honeymoon so he could catalog that in photos as well, but then we decided it would be awkward so we didn't.

The moment I met Jake, I knew he was the photographer for us. Not only was he extremely professional, but as I began to describe our wedding to him, he got almost as excited for it as I was! I felt assured that he would capture not only the details, but also the spirit of our day.

And man, did he deliver! Our pictures are gorgeous memories of a joyful and family-filled day that we will cherish and enjoy forever. Jake made us and our families feel comfortable in front of the camera and the result shows us just as we were - full of ease and joy.

I can say with certainty that Jake is the best decision we made (other than marrying each other, of course) for our wedding day and it would be a mistake NOT to hire him and his team!

Jake was THE ABSOLUTE BEST to work with. From the very first email he came off incredibly professional and personable. We were planning a smaller, more intimate wedding in New York, and he was incredibly willing to work with our budget.

The day of Jake came in and instantly melted into the scenery. Both my husband and I (still weird saying that lol) felt comfortable and didn't feel as if we had a camera following us around. He captured beautiful candid shots in our hotel rooms and was able to depict the moments in a way that made it easy for my husband and I to look back and know how the other was feeling without having been in the same room. That was really important to us.

At the ceremony Jake hit it off with all of our guests and captured the scenery of the ceremony, Brooklyn Bridge Park and Manhattan skyline beautifully. After the ceremony we took off to shoot photos of just the two of us and he captured the most magnificent shot on the BK bridge. It was THE shot I absolutely had to have and it came out exactly the way I wanted it to.

We had him stay for a bit of our dinner reception and while he was only there for about an hour or so, he was able to get shots of all of our friends and family and the ambiance of Gemma. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer experience and if he's available we'll definitely be seeking Jake out for anniversary photos, holiday card photos, etc!

When it was time to look for a wedding photographer, we definitely had set some high expectations. We needed to find someone who would make us feel comfortable around the camera, within our budget, and someone who had a unique style.

A friend recommended Jacob Murphy from JBM Wedding Photography and from the early moments of the initial meeting, the connection felt was apparent. Through the whole process, Jacob was personable, flexible, punctual, and genuine. He worked with us to create our own package and even added vintage photography and a photo booth, too!

The day of the wedding, Jacob & John were amazing. They both connected so well with our bridal party, family, & friends. Even our nephew, Ethan, admired both of them and mimicked their every move with his own camera.

If there is one thing to be said about getting a large amount of pictures taken of yourself, it is to stay relaxed. The relaxation, love and joy is what we would all like to see captured from a once in a lifetime event. Just when you think you couldn't conjure another smile due to cramping cheek muscles, Jacob’s calming energy and easy nature, flowing at its greatest intensity, brings you back to center.

We absolutely love the teasers that were put up online and we cannot wait to see more. The photos instantly take us back to the magic of our day. There is no doubt that we had made the right choice with JBM Wedding Photography. Jacob will forever be a part of our hearts.

When Jonathan and I became engaged, the first bit of advice we received was, “Make sure you get a great wedding photographer – it makes all the difference.” We found Jake through photographs he had taken of another Adirondack wedding and his work immediately stood out for the way it focused on those details and warm interactions that captured the feel of the day – and each of his weddings was unique. I was wary of hiring someone so far away whose work I only knew online, but once we had our first call, we were hooked.

From the first day, Jake put us completely at ease –great advice, wonderful ideas, and a personality that assured us he was excited, invested, and would do everything possible to make the day what we envisioned. I could easily fill pages with how much we loved working with Jake and how often we were asked – both during the festivities and in the weeks that followed – where we’d managed to find such an incredible photographer. Many guests remarked, “I’ve never seen a photographer hustle like that.”

Jake perfected not only those things we knew we wanted, but those about which we wouldn’t have thought. Having traveled up to the Adirondacks from Brooklyn the day before, he was on time (despite incredible flooding all over the area) and immediately began surveying the area to get a sense of possible shots. He was punctual and professional throughout – seemingly everywhere but never intrusive, and had such an eye for creative shots (not to mention the polaroids!). He was quick and able to gather and engage large numbers of people in a natural and light-handed way, as well as capture those spontaneous moments that we’re now so happy to have on film. Neither Jonathan nor I are particularly comfortable on the other side of a camera, but Jake was reassuring and made the whole experience incredibly fun.

Of all the decisions that were made for our wedding, we consider hiring Jake as one of (if not the) very best. We cannot recommend him highly enough.

My (now) husband and I were already thankful to Jake for the amazing job he did with our wedding - his incredible hard work and commitment, his ability to put us at ease, the seamless way he was inconspicuously everywhere. But when we saw the preview of our pictures, we were thrilled beyond what we could have imagined. Jake braved flooding and more than a little rain to ensure that, no matter what the weather, we had pictures that reflected the joy of the day. His unique eye managed to capture all of the little moments that were so special to us, as well as beautiful photographs of Asgaard Farm. When I think about how clueless we were when we started looking for a photographer, it's hard to believe how lucky we were in finding Jake. We can't thank you enough for giving us something so beautiful to reflect upon and share in the many years to come.

Wow! What else can we say?! We knew when we checked out the photos on JBM's site that Jake was going to capture exactly what we wanted in our wedding photos. He surpassed those expectations. To this day everyone raves about our awesome photographer and the great way in which Jake was able to capture the moment in each and every photo. The end result was not only what we feel like were awesome wedding photos but pieces of art!

One of the most important things for us in looking for a photographer was finding someone who would buy into and be excited about our desire for unique, interesting, and fun photos while still getting all of the classics as well. It felt like it would be a difficult balancing act to get all of the candid and spur of the moment photos we were hoping for while still making sure we got all the right group shots and specific photos that we knew our family would want to see.

Jake made it seem simple.

Not only did he deliver on everything for which we had asked, he went above and beyond to come up with new ideas that we hadn't even thought of yet. He clearly understood what it was that we wanted, and was able to give us that and so much more. Even as the intended time schedule for our wedding started to fall apart due to complications, Jake still made sure to get everything we wanted without making it feel stressful.

Honestly, Jake and his assistant John were the least stressful part of the entire day. They were great to work with, great to be around, and of course great photographers! We had multiple guests say how hard working they both were and that they were both a pleasure to be around! Jake was even thoughtful enough to find time to pop into our photo booth and leave us an amazing message. That's just the kind of guy he is.

JBM Photography has given us the most amazing collection of photos that we will treasure forever, and we've already told all of our friends about them.

As far as we are concerned, there's no one else better!

There were two anxieties I had going into our wedding; everyone having a good time and that good time being captured in the best way possible for us to look back on with our kids one day. From the first time we stumbled upon JBM Photography’s website we hoped that our wedding would be captured on that high a level. After over a year of planning, the wedding turned out amazing and we were truly floored when the first prints of our pictures came out. Due to Jake’s obvious passion and earnestness to really listen to who we are and what we wanted he was able to capture our memories beyond our wildest expectations. Our photographs hit such a personal note we can honestly say we couldn’t be any happier with how they turned out.

On top of the quality of work Jake has so much experience with weddings, there was a moment when the groomsmen and I couldn’t get our boutonniere’s on correctly and he quickly placed them on all of us smiling and calming me down the whole time. Jake also directed my wife and I after the ceremony to quickly hop in his car to a beautiful scouted location in the woods he had found the day before just as the sun was setting. We are so grateful to Jake for going the extra mile in every aspect and because of him have something we are truly proud of to show our kids one day!

Where to begin. As soon as I saw Jake's photos, I was hooked. After meeting him, I was even more hooked. He's so easy-going, responsive, and got our vision right off the bat. Throughout the process, he was so quick to get back to emails, had great ideas, took our ideas and ran with them, and make us always feel like we were his only clients. He even gave me the name of his fiance, Ash, who does make-up and hair. He never pushed me to use her though. He shot awesome pics for our engagement shoot and was quick getting them to us. I eventually did contact Ash who was just as great to work with as Jake. Ash gave great ideas for my hair and the trial was so comfortable. She listened to me and what I wanted and was flexible and talented. They were awesome at coordinating the timing of everything for our wedding to make sure we got prep pictures, family pics, and couple's pics before the event as well. Likewise, the morning of, Jake arrived super early to scope out the area, hotel, and venue; Ash was on time at 8:30am, ready to go! They are a great team!!
Ash did my hair (which I changed from the trial) and adjusted without skipping a beat. She did my mom's makeup and sister's hair and made everyone look fabulous (and I am not an easy person to please most times). She stayed until I was in my dress and was a total pro the whole time, yet also warm and friendly.
As organized as I was, we were still running 45 minutes behind and we only had one hour for family photos and one hour for couple's photos. How he (and his assistant Maria) did it I cannot tell you, but we managed to get the family pics done and have a long, relaxing couple's session AND still made it to the venue 5-10 minutes before schedule. Nothing felt rushed either. He's stealth (like a ninja); everywhere at once, but also unnoticed, super creative, and he already got our previews to us, 3 days after our wedding! Everyone loved him at the wedding and the photos are gorgeous! Can't wait to see the rest!

We are beyond thrilled that we chose Jake to shoot our wedding day! Our wedding pictures are absolutely gorgeous, and exactly what we were hoping for. When setting out to pick a photographer it was very important to us that our photos would look natural instead of overly posed. Jake knows how to make a group of people feel extremely comfortable and at ease and was able to capture all the aspects of the day without anyone feeling like they had a wedding photographer in their face all day. Our wedding was Saturday 11/3 in Florham Park, so for most of the week we had no idea if our wedding was even going to take place because of Hurricane Sandy – miraculously none of our guests were severely impacted by the storm and amazingly all of our vendors had power (or generators!) so the wedding was a go. Jake had to deal with a gasoline shortage and travel restrictions in/out of Manhattan but he was there on time with a smile! Our second photographer wasn’t able to attend because of the Hurricane and while I was slightly disappointed at the time Jake wasn’t going to let that hinder picture taking – I have no idea how he did it, but I am pretty sure he did the work of about three or more photographers! Both of our parents commented in amazement to us during the wedding that Jake “was everywhere”. Our pictures absolutely reflect his dedication to making sure that he captured every single aspect and moment of our wedding day. I also had a crazy long list of pictures that I wanted taken (details, combinations of people etc.) and he definitely put a lot of effort into making sure he took those pictures. Thank you again Jake, we are extremely happy with our wedding pictures and have no idea how we’re going to narrow down our favorites into an album!!

Jake Murphy is a maker of beautiful memories. Whether Jake and I were storming the campus of Syracuse University, spring breaking on Duval Street, or tubing down the Battenkill, Jake and I have always been good friends who have shared many memories together. So when it came to choosing the person to document my most recent (and favorite) memory, my wedding, Jake was my first and only option.

On an autumn day in upstate New York, Jake managed to capture both small and giant moments of happiness. It was important for my fiance and I to have all of our guests and family members captured in their most authentic state, and boy, did Jake do just that. His pictures have a way of making those being photographed subjects of a piece of art rather than that of a person posed in a photograph. It is funny that my favorite pictures were those I wasn't even aware were being taken, and yet when I look at them now, I know exactly what I was thinking/laughing/crying/smiling about at that very moment.

I am very grateful for Jake's beautiful work, his dedication (the man shot for over 8 hours!) and most importantly, his friendship. Thank you, Jake for providing me with the thousands of moments that helped make up yet another beautiful memory. If you want wedding pictures that turn your moments into art, choose JBM Wedding Photography.

(On our wedding day, Jake's professionalism and dedication did not go unnoticed by our guests- He is going to photograph my sister's wedding this summer!)

I just wanted to say what an absolutely wonderful experience it was working with Jake for our wedding. Right from the get-go, he made us feel at ease and had such fantastic input (which was very welcome during a stressful wedding planning period!). The engagement session went great and was a nice way to get comfortable with his style and walk through how the day would progress. On our wedding day, it couldn't have gone more smoothly. Jake traveled a bit to the site, but was on time to wherever we had him planned! He went down our whole list of 'must-have' shots without a hitch. Everyone noticed and appreciated how laid-back and out of the way he was (not one of those typical 'in-your-face' types). When we got the pictures back (in just a month!), we were SO impressed with the results. Jake is so creative and captured the emotions of that day for us to remember forever. I can't speak highly enough of him and wish we could do it all over again!!

Jake was an excellent photographer. He is so nice and helpful. We love our engagement shots as well as the wedding pictures. They are beautiful and capture the moment. I keep going through and finding a new favorite. He really captured both us a couple and the event itself. All of our friends and family having fun. I would definitely suggest Jake to anyone in need of a wedding photographer.

Jake and his Fiance Ash did an amazing Job shooting our Wedding. I went to college with Jake (i had no idea he was even into Photography) and on facebook a few years later I started to see his page with different weddings he had been shooting and they looked awesome. I knew I wanted to have him for our wedding. Because I have known him from college and even though we had not spoken for years, it was nice to have a friendly face to glace over at throughout the wedding. He was always smiling, he knew when to calm me down, he knew when to make everyone laugh. Him and Ash worked great together. When i started to cry Ash came over and gently blotted under eyes as Jake told me to take my time... The preview came out great, everyone loves the pictures, including myself and my husband. My mom wrote in an email "Omg. These r great. Jake is very talented." We couldnt agree more. It was pleasure to see Jake after 6 years and to work with him. We can not wait to see the rest of the pictures. Thank you so much to both you and Ash! xoxo Alexa and Mike

JBM was the perfect fit for our wedding. We knew going into the experience that we didn't want many (or any) posed photos - we wanted to enjoy the day, and we wanted a photographer who could honestly and artistically capture us doing so (in the most attractive way possible).. And that was Jake. We wanted to be photographed in a unique way, and weren't interested in a photographer who simply wanted to recreate pinterest photos, or a photographer who takes the same pictures of each wedding and wedding party. I wanted to have some input, but I really needed a photographer who could take control and handle the logistics of the day. With that wishlist in mind, we couldn't have been happier with our choice.

Our engagement session (long before our bridal showers/bachelor outings had started) gave us the first taste of how exciting our wedding day would be. I knew Jake was the best choice for us when he and his glorious mustache met us on the Brooklyn Heights promenade and he got us talking about how we got engaged. When he had my husband re-enact the proposal (something I'd normally find cheesy), I forgot Jake was even there. The pictures of how happy and in love we look on that day are so special to me, and I had total confidence our wedding photos would be the same.

On the day of our wedding, it was even better (naturally). Jake & Ash had scouted the location and planned some places to shoot, but they were flexible as well. They were easygoing and fun to be around, but could disappear into the background to photograph the special moments as well. The pictures of Aaron & I are incredible!

JBM was the perfect fit for our wedding. We knew going into the experience that we didn't want many (or any) posed photos - we wanted to enjoy the day, and we wanted a photographer who could honestly and artistically capture us doing so (in the most attractive way possible).. And that was Jake. We wanted to be photographed in a unique way, and weren't interested in a photographer who simply wanted to recreate pinterest photos, or a photographer who takes the same pictures of each wedding and wedding party. I wanted to have some input, but I really needed a photographer who could take control and handle the logistics of the day. With that wishlist in mind, we couldn't have been happier with our choice.

Our engagement session (long before our bridal showers/bachelor outings had started) gave us the first taste of how exciting our wedding day would be. I knew Jake was the best choice for us when he and his glorious mustache met us on the Brooklyn Heights promenade and he got us talking about how we got engaged. When he had my husband re-enact the proposal (something I'd normally find cheesy), I forgot Jake was even there. The pictures of how happy and in love we look on that day are so special to me, and I had total confidence our wedding photos would be the same.

On the day of our wedding, it was even better (naturally). Jake & Ash had scouted the location and planned some places to shoot, but they were flexible as well. They were easygoing and fun to be around, but could disappear into the background to photograph the special moments as well. The pictures of Aaron & I are incredible! And so are my memories of that wonderful hour we got to spend alone (with Jake) on our wedding day.

This was our 50 th wedding anniversary at the church where we were originally married. The photographic results were extraordinary of both the Mass and the reception afterward. Wonderful shots in both color and B&W and from angles that seemed impossible. This photographer is so creative he is as much an artist as a photographer. Highly recommended.

First of all, we apologize wholeheartedly for the tardiness of our review. Even though our wedding day was many months ago, we still remember every minute of it like it was yesterday. And thanks to Jacob’s wonderful pictures, we have a lifetime to relive and relish every moment.

Jacob’s ability to capture candid moments portray the emotion behind each shot; from the laughter we shared when I messed up during the vows, to the tears of joy we shed listening to our families’ heartfelt speeches, and our glee upon the dance floor. His use of angles, interesting setups, and attention to detail are all very impressive. Additionally, Ashley and Jimmy Shimmy were invaluable assets throughout the day. All three photographers possessed a plethora of patience while working with us, our various family members, the little ones, and of course, our four-legged love, Bennett.

We continually recommended JBM to our friends and families. Jacob’s work was so impressive that guests asked us for his contact information and our venue added him to their preferred vendor list.

Jacob- We cannot thank you enough for our beautiful pictures and contributing to the joy of our wedding day. We are incredibly happy with your work and the wonderful moments you captured. Thank you for making our day unforgettable.

Jake is such a talented photographer and my husband and I are beyond happy with his work! He is kind, professional, and very responsive, which was important to me since I was planning my wedding from a different city. Jake did an excellent job of capturing the fun, candid moments that made our wedding so wonderful. I usually don't like having my picture taken, but his positive attitude and calming demeanor helped me feel comfortable in front of the camera. The albums that he creates are incredibly gorgeous--we will treasure our beautiful wedding album for the rest of our lives!

Jake's fiancee, Ash, did my makeup and they make an amazing team! Ash was so sweet and helped to sooth my nerves on the big day. I'm so grateful to Jake and Ash for helping to make our wedding day the amazing day that it was!

Jake,
We could not be happier with our choice to have you as our wedding photographer. We never wanted the stiff, serious wedding photos, they just arent our style. We knew we wanted more candid, fun, and loving photos and we got just that. (and more!) You made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and we had a great time.
We also heard great things from our guests about how friendly you were, and for us that was a major compliment. We have been to other weddings where the photographer acts as if they are a VIP person and treat the guests poorly. We did not want that kind of attitude and you were the farthest thing from it. Alot of people actually thought you were one of our friends (who was running all over the place taking awesome photos)
After the awesome engagement shoot, the prep for the ceremony, and the wedding, you took such a lovely range of photos and we couldnt be happier.
Thank you so much!!!

Dear Jake,
We can't say enough good things about you. Recently, a friend of ours who is a professional photographer saw your work and said that they were the best wedding photos he had ever seen. I don't doubt it; we were beyond pleased with your work. You are a tremendously talented and passionate photographer, and we believe wholeheartedly in your vision.
In addition to your great professional skill, you are exceptionally good at making people comfortable as you photograph them. You were engaged, friendly, flexible, and understanding from the very beginning of the process. It was so much fun working with you, and the result was exceptional.
In the midst of a stressful, exciting, emotional day, I was able to completely trust in you and your vision. The photos you took are among the most precious, meaningful things in my possession, and we are both filled with gratitude.

Dear Jake,
My husband and I could not be happier with our decision to chose you for our wedding day. You have such a positive attitude and a really hard work ethic. On the day of our wedding you arrived early with a big smile on your face - so ready and so excited to be capturing all of the moments of our special day. Your positivity and good energy put me and all of the bridesmaids at ease, and we were all very comfortable having you there capturing candid moments while we relaxed and got ready. The weather was terribly humid for our wedding day and I noticed that you worked up quite the sweat, but you never complained and never slowed down. I remember having to ask you to take breaks to get water/snacks etc because I was afraid you might faint! I want to thank you for taking your job as our photographer so seriously but also thank you for having so much fun with it - whenever I looked over at you, you were smiling and snapping away with your camera. It was such a pleasure to see you having so much fun with it!
Numerous wedding guests commented on how impressed they were with both your energy and your ability to capture moments from our ceremony and reception without getting in the way and distracting the guests from what was going on. Jake, you seemed to be everywhere at the right time, and went practically unnoticed by me and my guests as we celebrated our ceremony and reception that evening - you are basically a photography master ninja of sorts! :-) But, all joking aside, we got numerous compliments from our guests about how impressed they were with our photographer and how they were all so excited to see the end product of your hard work.
The preview album you provided us with some of your favorite shots from our day were beyond perfect. We noticed that from the collection you gave in the preview - every single picture told the story of our wedding in such a beautiful way. I had a long list of posed photographs we wanted - I have no idea how you were able to take all of them (very impressive) - but we also asked for candids to tell the story of our day. Now, any wedding photographer can take a posed photograph - they ask you and your guests to stand a certain way and smile... but it takes a true artist to also know how to capture the candid feelings of joy and love and those moments throughout the evening that make your wedding day special and unique to you and your partner. Jake, you know how to tell the story of a wedding and capture the raw emotion of the bride and groom and their guests better than any wedding photographer out there!! Out of the preview you gave us, none of the pictures you included were posed, all were candid, and all were absolutely beautiful. I don't know how you made our candids so perfectly beautiful - you have such a gift! During our wedding day, I took the time to take in certain moments and just enjoy all of the love in those moments - and somehow you were able to capture ALL of those special moments- and captured them so well. Looking through the photos I am able to relive the happiest day of my life over and over again - and I am so grafeful for that.
Friends and family that were not able to make it to the wedding have told me that after looking through the previewed JBM wedding photography photographs that they were brought to tears by the feelings of joy and love and saw the whole story of the day - and said that they truely felt as though they experienced the wedding first-hand through our photographs. That is a special gift that you have Jake - and for the rest of our lives my husband and I will be able to look back at our wedding album and remember all of the love and joy we experienced on our perfect wedding day.

Thank you so very much! Love, Marisa & David

It has been nearly six months since Jake shot our New Year's Eve wedding. Although this review is hugely overdue, I come to it after attending two weddings since mine, and I feel like I can give an even more informed and positive review. In short Jake was a dream to work with, and I love every single photo he took.

Leading up to the wedding, it was very easy to communicate with Jake, both via email and phone. He was professional and easy-going. We even engaged in a bit of negotiating over the terms of his contract (in terms of how our pictures can be used) and his response and our discussions were very courteous and reasonable (and I think very fair as in the end we both got what we wanted).

I love that Jake sent us a form in advance of the wedding so I didn't have to run around on the day of the wedding telling him what pictures we wanted. Nevertheless, when, on the day of the wedding, I realized there were a few pictures I had forgotten, and I would run to Jake and tell him something I wanted, he always said, "Sure!"

For the two weddings I have been to in the last six months, I found the photographers intrusive and annoying. Why did they always stand right between me and my view of the cake cutting? Why did they run around with a giant bright light? Why did they make the bride and groom stay in these cheesy, unnatural poses to recreate events solely for the sake of the photographs? Jake did none of these things (although, I'm sure if you wanted to do any of these things, he would be happy to accommodate). His photojournalistic approach to shooting our wedding was the perfect balance between catching all the special moments without being rehearsed or staged. And he still caught every single unexpected moment at our wedding (when the music accidentally went on in the middle of the ceremony; my husband goofing off during the cake cutting).

Jake was also a super fun photographer to have at our wedding. Let's just say that a lot of our guests loved Jake. And he rolled right with it.

And the photos are amazing! In addition to the wedding photos, he managed to take some of the most scenic shots of our venue and the views from our venue.

My husband and I would recommend Jake without a hesitation!

My husband and I had Jake Murphy as our wedding photographer for our wedding of 200+ guests and we were beyond impressed! Even though it was just him, he never missed a beat. It seemed like he was everywhere! He was so easy going and fun to work with! Our HUGE wedding party really enjoyed working with him, and it showed in all of the group pictures! We were blown away when we saw the preview of our pictures - and so were alot of friends and family! They came out SO great! He captured the energy of our day perfectly. Our full set is in the mail now, and we cannot wait to look at them! Our wedding was less than a week after a freak October blizzard that knocked out the power in our area for a week - I was stressed out to say the least. Not having to worry about whether my photgrapher would get the right photos on our big day was a huge relief. We had to change the address where he was to take photos twice, and he just went with it. He did everything perfectly! I've already recommended him to some of my engaged friends! Worth every penny and more!! Thanks Jake!!!!

Our wedding turned out just the way I imagined and Jake did an incredible job capturing our special day. We both knew Jake from college (in fact he was my freshman year RA) and when we were thinking about photographers for the wedding both of us immediately thought of him. He is great at capturing intimate candid moments and making you feel comfortable in front of the camera – not just us but with our family and friends too.

He captured every moment and was able to get them from every angle. It was hard to believe he was the only one shooting. The photos he produced were creative, unique and had amazing lighting. My favorite shot of the day was when he asked a store in SOHO if we could borrow their bright orange chair; the store said yes and Jake picked up the chair it put it right in the middle of the road. The photographs that came from me and my bridesmaids posing around it were by far everyone's favorites. I love how spontaneous he was that day.

I could not be happier with how everything turned out. I would recommend him to anyone I know that is getting married.

He is great at capturing intimate candid moments and making you feel comfortable in front of the camera – not just us but with our family and friends too.

He captured every moment and was able to get them from every angle. It was hard to believe he was the only one shooting. The photos he produced were creative, unique and had amazing lighting. My favorite shot of the day was when he asked a store in SOHO if we could borrow their bright orange chair; the store said yes and Jake picked up the chair it put it right in the middle of the road. The photographs that came from me and my bridesmaids posing around it were by far everyone's favorites. I love how spontaneous he was that day.

I could not be happier with how everything turned out. I would recommend him to anyone I know that is getting married. Read less

I found Jacob's photos through his project in India (dirt floors and stone walls), and decided to contact him to see if he could translate his incredible photojournalism into wedding photos. unbeknown to me at the time, he was also a professional wedding photographer...perfect!

Jacob shot our elopement in NYC with professionalism, honesty, a genuine enthusiasm for what he did. We simply could not recommend him high enough.

The photos he produced were unique, creative, and devoid of any cheesy 'wedding' type shots which were were most happy to avoid! His photos captured the day as it unfolded- the fun, the spontaneity and the genuine happiness we shared.

My wife and i still look at Jacobs photos daily, and cannot thank him enough for being a part of it with us.

Working with Jake was a dream, and his photographs are so beautiful I could not be happier with his service. He was flexible, responsive, personable, professional, and everyone was so comfortable with him being around taking pictures: he blended into the background and just produced beautiful, personal photos. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a nice, professional guy to take gorgeous images of their event.

Without him I would not have the memories of my wedding day that I am now able to keep forever!

Jacob Murphy is a photography STAR! Jake was the photographer for our wedding in Central Park, July 30, 2011. Prior to the ceremony day, Jake asked for our thoughts on the feeling we would like in the photos: well, he surpassed our wildest dreams! What we love is how he captured every moment...and we did not even know he was taking the hundreds of shots....how he did it was amazing. And we love how Jake caught the reactions of our guests as they laughed and cried and were so full of joy! And our grand neice, Adele, was the center of many not-to-be forgotten photos....her radiant beauty was brilliantly photographed. When we were giving our vows, Jake caught every nuance, and the picture of our rings and the ring ceremony will always be among our favorites. But, then again, they were all favorites: the fantastic views of the Rainbow Chapel, the kisses with many backgrounds, the absolute wonder of our officiant Bex Schwartz, and the after ceremony waves and images of our total happiness....simply wondrous! And how he caught the duos, trios and more among our guests was awesome: every guest has now received sets of photos and they are all raving about them: "how did you get such a great wedding photographer?" one couple wrote. Well, it was just good luck for us....and we would wish the same grateful happiness to anyone who is fortunate to book Jacob Murphy for their most special day. Thanks, Jake. John and Jay Strauss-Williams, married in Central Park, July 30, 2011.

My husband and I could not have been happier with the service that we received from Jake Murphy. Besides the fact that he made my husband and I look like naturals in front of the camera, Jake was able to make our wedding party and guests feel comfortable as he took their pictures, moving through the crowd with ease and without creating any distractions. The wedding day was the first time we met and it seemed as if he was an old friend. Immediately after the wedding, family and friends were commenting on how great he was, before they had even seen his finished product.
Jake was flexible and willing to work with us. We got married in a blizzard and he still took his equipment outside with a smile on his face and took great pictures. We realized that the wind had blown my husband's boutonniere off after we had gotten back inside the building, so he followed the groomsmen back into the snow to retrieve the flower, and took some great pictures doing so.
Overall, I could not be happier with the photographs. I love his candid approach to photography. Anyone can tell people where to stand, but it takes true talent to capture the essence of the event. Reviewing the photos has been a pleasure; I can't stop looking through them. I've also had many comments on them from people I barely know. Just two weeks after the wedding, I'd already had the opportunity to give his contact information to brides-to-be who have come across our photos. The search for a wedding photographer is long and stressful, end your search here.

Jake Murphy is an excellent wedding photographer. He photographed everything from our wedding set-up to our rehearsal dinner, and took wonderful pictures of the day itself. His photos went beyond traditional wedding photography, and really captured the intangible spirit of the weekend. If you're able to book him for your wedding, you'll be very lucky indeed!

I am neurotic and both my new wife and myself insist on getting the absolute best. After tons and tons of hunting and weeding through photogs that were cheesey, overpriced, weird, etc etc... searching for a wedding photographer; we came across Jake. When you look at his work and meet him you will know almost immediately that he is premium- a talented, passionate, energetic, friendly guy. We had extremely high expectations going into our event, and these were exceeded by Jake (and that is not an exaggeration). He blended into the party, but somehow managed to take OVER 4000 PICTURES. He is a world-class photographer; and it was lucky for us to get him as our wedding photographer. His pictures are natural, never phoney or posed. We aren't bad looking people, but he made us look like we belonged in a bridal magazine. Jake and his photographs that we now have were without a doubt the highlight of our wedding!

Jacob Murphy Studios did the photography at my wedding this past September. I wish there was a better rating system on this site because everything about Jacob Murphy was off the charts. Jake was very accommodating to any and every request (no matter how crazy). Initially, I was concerned that I would feel conscious about having someone I didn’t know hovering around taking photographs of me, my family and friends. The opposite happened. Jake made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed with his upbeat, warm demeanor. The photographs were nothing short of EXCELLENT! There was not a single shot I didn’t like. I received the photos promptly after the wedding. If I have another event in my life that needs to photographed, my first call would be to Jacob Murphy Studios. I give Jake my highest recommendation and encourage anyone who is getting married or needs professional photography to use Jacob Murphy Studios. -Monica

True story: I moved our wedding date just so we can have Jake as our photographer. I think that pretty much sums up how talented this guy is. We had a small ceremony and reception, and I was very particular about how I wanted our photos to come out. Jake was able to capture the intimacy without being intrusive. He was there but not there. The photos were candid, spontaneous and gorgeously shot. The guy has the eye (just check out his website). An amazing day deserves an amazing photographer. And that's Jake Murphy.

Jacob was really nice and laid back. We felt comfortable with him. He seemed to genuinely be having a good time photographing us. He was also spontaneous; if something caught his eye he would take the picture. We were very happy with the end result, it was just the style we wanted (not too many posed pics). We've already recommended him to friends!

Hiring JBM Weddings was one of the easiest and best decisions we made in the wedding planning process! Jake was amazing to work with throughout all stages of the wedding, from planning, day of and through delivery of the photographs.

The day of, Jake’s manner was so easygoing, yet he really took the reins and helped us navigate the entire day. He kept us on schedule and even managed directing our (somewhat eccentric) driver for us! My husband and I both felt super comfortable and at ease with Jake, which is reflected in our pictures.

Guests have continually commented on how Jake was to work with. One of our guests even recommended JBM Weddings for her friend. It felt so good to know that Jake made our guests comfortable while remaining unobtrusive.

Post wedding, Jake continued to be awesome. We received our pictures really quickly and they were all amazing.

If you want to feel assured that you have the right photographer, go with JBM Weddings and you’ll have one less worry and in the end, you’ll have gorgeous pictures of your wedding.
