About

On WeddingWire since 2014

Hi!

I'm Jay of Jay Zhang Photography, I am a photojournalistic wedding photographer In the Capital Region of New York and ultimately, I'm a story teller. I cover many areas of the capital region and beyond including out in the Berkshires, Western NY, Central NY, The Catskills, The Adirondacks and NYC. You have a wedding, and I'll be there!

As a Story Teller, I mainly focus on capturing moments that are real and transcendent, even during some portraiture times so that your photos reflect the authenticity of your story. There are details that you curated and put together for your day that get documented in its essence and environment. I aim to preserve the special moments of the day and make sure that I tell your story the way you have set things out to be.

All of my Wedding couples will get to enjoy the following:

  • Complimentary Engagement shoot
  • High-resolution images
  • Downloadable online Photo Gallery
  • Timeline Drafting and Consultation

I also sometimes work with a second photographer if they are needed depending on how your day will pan out, we usually try and anticiapte this during our first meeting and timeline consultation.

I can't wait to chat with you more abour your day!

So flexible!

hello hello! like many folks, we canceled our wedding because of COVID. Jay was super flexible as we figured out our plans. We wound up having a super small 10 person wedding in our local community garden (everyone masked etc.) and Jay came to photograph that! He is ultra organized and helped us keep us on schedule and reminded us of the shots we had wanted to take. My parents couldn't be there but they were on Facetime and Jay was so great about trying to get them in the shots whenever possible. Also Jay was very safe! Masked the whole time and everything so if you are nervous about that don't be! The pictures turned out great and he really captured how DARN HAPPY we were to finally get married!!! Also he is very nice and friendly! And totally willing to go with the flow. I randomly asked him to take a picture of us with my avocado plants and Jay DID NOT BAT AN EYE. He was all "sure! stand here so you guys have better lighting etc." HIRE JAY! he is so nice and kind and will take nice pictures of you.

Amazing photos! Thank you Jay!

We booked Jay to do our engagement photos, and we enjoyed the experience and the photos so much that we knew we wanted him for our wedding as well! He was very easy to work with, very professional and had a lot of great unique ideas for photos, and worked so well not only with us but with everyone else at the wedding too. So many of our guests had nothing but positive things to say about him. He was never intrusive but still managed to capture some really great moments throughout the whole night. Thank you so much again Jay for all your hard work and incredible photos!

The best photographer!

Jay Zhang is one of the kindest people I have had the pleasure of meeting. He is very funny and a spectacular photographer. The first time we met, I immediately felt comfortable with him, which I do not often feel when meeting people for the first time, and it is a really special thing for a wedding photographer!!

He assuaged all sorts of worries and concerns we had throughout the whole wedding planning experience. We just looked through all of the photos he took on the wedding day and the album is full of gems and beautiful memories. Highly recommend Jay!!!!
