Paul was amazing to work with! I would highly recommend him. He was on time, had great ideas, and helped me to execute the many ideas that I had for the wedding photographs! I was referred to Paul by a friend, who was very happy with his services as well. Whenever I need photography, or anyone that I may know may need photography, I will definitely be giving Paul a call.

Paul was a pure delight to work with! He was always available to answer any questions we had leading up to our wedding and always responded quickly. On the day of the wedding he went above and beyond. When my husbands best man disappeared when they were getting ready, Paul stepped in and helped my husband get ready all while taking pictures of him! We decided to do first look pitctures. At the last minute I decided to do a first look with my father as well. Paul arranged it within seconds! When we were outside taking pictures he noticed a weed in the distance, ran up to it and pulled it out so it wouldn't 'ruin the shot'. After the wedding, he made sure we got our Thank You pictures early so we could send out thank you cards. These are only a few of the many examples I have. Choosing Paul Jayson to be your wedding photographer would be the best decision you could make!

Paul Jayson was absolutely amazing! He photographed my wedding back in April. I am not the best when it comes to deadlines and getting things done. Needless to say - He was very patient with me. Any questions I had, he took the time to answer. He spent a lot of time before the wedding talking to me to get to know me and what I wanted. On the day of my wedding, we took our photos before the wedding bc it was very important to me that I not miss my wedding and he was so efficient! Plus, the added bonus of FABULOUS wedding pictures!! He truly captured the love and the day better than I could have ever imagined. I would recommend him to anyone!

Paul was extremely professional and went above and beyond for the perfect shot. We are very impressed with his energy and enthusiasm. His assistant was just as lovely and both made a great team. We enjoyed working with them and they made our day feel very fun and special. I can't wait to get the final copies and my photo book! I know he will put just as much work and effort into the final picts as he did taking them.

I cannot even begin to explain my complete satisfaction with Paul Jayson photography. Of all of my vendors he was by far my favorite. In the months leading up to the wedding Paul was very responsive and quickly answered all of my questions. We discussed and planned our general itinerary beforehand and he was completely flexible when I changed my mind at the last minute (initially I was going to see my husband before the ceremony and I changed my mind the day before). Paul arrived to my house on time and wasted no time setting up and immediately flashing away! He was completely out of the way as we were getting ready and captured wonderful candids of myself, family, and bridesmaids while we prepped. After that, the rest of the night was a breeze. I was initially nervous that I wouldn't know how to pose or where I should look and Paul gave me excellent direction. In addition to our gorgeous portraits he also managed to capture table and group shots of our 225 guests (both traditional and crazy/fun shots). My pictures turned out spectacular and we received them QUICKLY! There were so many unique shots that I didn't even realize were taken and my friends and family cannot stop raving about them. What I especially loved though was that Paul stayed in touch after the wedding and emailed me to update me on the status of my photos and expected timeframes.

The quality of work and level of customer service that Paul provides far surpasses any other vendor I have dealt with. I truly cannot say enough excellent things about him and HIGHLY recommend him.
