My husband and I hired Jay for a bridal shoot for our two year wedding anniversary. I had worked with Jay in the past and knew how fabulous his work was and was so excited to work with him again. My husband and I had talked about doing a shoot like this since our wedding and though it would be fun to put my dress back on, get done up and get some fun photos you never have a chance to get on your wedding day, as well as make up for some photos we felt were missed. Well that’s exactly what we did. Jay and I were in touch before the day of the shoot discussing the different type of shots we were hoping to get. When the day came, Jay and his wife Vicki were amazing. We were able to arrange some time to take pictures at the church we got married in, which was fantastic. Jay was so creative and excited to be able to “play” with the lighting and shots inside the church. Once we left there Jay brought us to some amazing places with incredible views. He knows the North Conway/Jackson area incredibly well and had great ideas of places to go, for example “The greatest field in the world”. The pictures were even better than we had imagined. We had some ideas about what we wanted and Jay took them and brought them to life with his eye for lighting, scenery, and fun! We would highly recommend hiring Jay for all of your photography needs, he is a true professional and an absolute pleasure to work with and we hope to have reasons to hire him again in the future! Thanks again Jay and Vicki!
When I decided to get married in North Conway, NH I started asking people who they would recommend as a photographer. Just about every single person directed me to Jay Philbrick at Philbrick Photography. Within 10 minutes of meeting him, my mom and I knew the decision had been made. To be honest, he is a bit more pricey than some other photographers, but believe me he is 100% worth it. His photo’s will be original and he has an eye that is undeniable. He really captures moments and images that you could never imagine. He is extremely easy to coordinate with – he will call you or email you back pretty much the same day he receives your email or call. He is very easy to talk to and explains the whole process. He will be honest with you about the scheduling of the day and sets your expectations. We actually took all of our pictures before the ceremony so we could get all the images we want. I have over 600 amazing photo’s from my wedding day and each one is not the “typical” wedding photos. People see my pictures and are floored by how great they are. I can’t tell you how many of my guests said that he was the best photographer they have seen. I also did an “extreme” photoshoot with him and he is extremely patient and pretty much up for anything. He has his wife, Vicky, with him during all his shoots and she helps him with lighting, and taking additional photo’s. They are a great team and I am so happy that we went with them. I promise that you will not be sorry.
From a commercial photographer who reviewed our work:
OK, here it is. Your wedding photography is un-xxxxing believable. I’m not BS-ing you. Trend setting. High fashion. Sue mentioned award winning. You are in the moment. Artistic eye aside, your exposures are right on. Or at least you’re pulling it out of them. You’re going to make me look good just referring you. Magazine cover quality. Your photos show your couples as the most popular and blessed on the planet!
Oh my gosh. Those are the most beautiful wedding pictures I have ever seen!!!! You look SO beautiful and Danny looks so handsome and everyone is so happy. Your photographer just captured your bright personalities perfectly! I so wish I were there to share it with you. Maybe (just maybe) I’m a little hyper emotional right now but viewing your photos really did bring tears to my eyes. You made a great choice going with that photographer. I know because our photographer sucked so every wedding now my advice is to find a photographer you really love even if you have to splurge a little there and cut back elsewhere. You found a perfect one. I’d also like a slice of that wedding cake please. Yum!!!
