Portraits by the Bay was founded 10 years ago, however, I began my journey into photography at age 17. My primary interests consisted of people and places and how through travel the photos took on a journalistic approach. What really intrigued me most was how these people related to their environment. Friends and family who viewed my photos let it be known that I had found my niche.

My familiarity with the area has specialized my business in coastal weddings and I believe it truly shows in my work. I have a non-traditional, journalistic approach to reveal the story of your most important day all with an unobtrusive presence.

My belief is to be as casual and light-hearted as possible to keep the day moving smoothly. I truly love what I do because I get to go to work doing something that I have always enjoyed. And the best part of it is that it's always a happy occasion with many new relationships to be made. Read less

We had our Engagement session at the beginning of the summer and our photos turned out amazing! Jason worked so well with our children as well and was very open to any ideas we had. I can't wait until the wedding and to see how well the photographs are captured!

Portraits By The Bay was an awesome photography vendor. My husband and I got our engagement pictures done in July and loved them, and we just knew our wedding pictures would be amazing as well. We have gotten them back and are thrilled. Everyone who has seen them cannot believe how many were taken to choose from and how beautiful they look. Jason, the owner, was very helpful through our entire planning process and always emailed and called us back within minutes of my emailing or calling him. On our wedding day we had Charlie and he was great! His ideas and receptiveness to our ideas were perfect and we couldn't have asked for more. It was truly a joy and easy to work with PBTB, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

I don't even know where to begin. Jason and his team (Matt and "Uncle" Jesse) were outstanding, OUTstanding. Between the 3 of them, we had every shot imaginable, almost 4,000 photos to go through! Photography is one of the most important aspects of a wedding, if not the most important, and we are so glad we went with Portraits by the Bay! Even our engagement shoot was awesome.

We cannot wait to put together our wedding album and see how that comes out! Amazing I'm sure!

Be sure to check out the beautiful wooden piece they do, that was the selling feature to us, very unique, unlike anything we've seen before.

We will be contacting Jason again when it's time for maternity and family shots.

Thanks so much, Portraits by the Bay!!!

A wedding should be remembered and definitely will be if Jason and his crew take your pictures! Not a shot was missed and they really knew how to take wholesome pictures. The entire family was included in beach pictures and pictures at our reception site (The Mill in Spring Lake, NJ). I can not wait to receive our albums and videos, especially since our photos looked fabulous! This was to no surprise, as Jason also took our outstanding engagement photos nine months prior. Portraits by the bay showed up on time the day of our wedding, and we received our photos just a short week after our special day! Jason's crew made picture taking fun and memorable. I will definitely be spreading the word about their glamorous work! Thank you again, Portraits by the Bay!

Portraits by the Bay is an amazing team to work with! Jason, and his team, are extremely professional, kind, and attentive. They are extremely artistic, and all of their wedding day photography ideas were gorgeous. We could not have been more pleased with how our photos came out. One is more beautiful than the next. Jason, and team, were also amazing with my family the day of the wedding. I have 2 step-sons, ages 5 and 6, and Jason managed to get them smiling throughout the day. They listened to all of my requests, and paid attention to the smallest details, which made for a lifetime of memories. They were truly a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed!

Jason and Jesse were absolutely amazing! They were creative, professional, and caring and we could not have asked for a better team to work with! Jason made himself available for whatever questions we had, and he helped us to feel relaxed and comfortable, even with an impending hurricane. I would absolutely recommend portraits by the bay to EVERYONE!
