Samantha is wonderful!
We loved working with Samantha from start to finish. After reading a few reviews, we met with Samantha and immediately felt comfortable. She answered all of our questions about the wedding photography process and was sweet and fun throughout the conversation. This level of communication continued over email and phone as we worked with her for 18 months to organize the engagement session and ultimately the wedding. We really enjoyed our engagement session, and she provided really helpful instructions and tips on how it would all work. She timed it perfectly with the end of day light and we really enjoyed the experience. COVID hit a few months before our wedding was scheduled in June 2020 and Samantha openly communicated with us and was very flexible and transparent throughout. She was willing to move the date to a future date. Ultimately, we decided to have smaller 13 person wedding in Westchester County, NY instead of Media, PA. Samantha was very kind and flexible with these changes, and willing to travel. On the day, I ended up having to do a lot of the coordination and work since it was a smaller event and Samantha arrived early and was started the details while I finished getting ready. During our portrait session, she made sure we got a ton of great shots, even making sure we went to a second location that I had previously mentioned. I'm so glad we did that because some of our best pictures are at that location! She has a wonderful calm and sweet energy that made us feel very comfortable despite the fact that neither one of us are super comfortable in front of the camera. During the family portraits, she was really good at sticking to the plan we had established, which is helpful when you've got different family dynamics to consider! All of our guests also really enjoyed Samantha's presence, and she made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. She did a great job with the background shots during dinner and speeches, and wonderfully captured our laughing and crying moments. She stayed longer than originally anticipated and before she left, she asked if there were any other pictures that we wanted and she made sure to take a couple more portrait shots of the two of us. Samantha knows what is important on a wedding day and makes sure you get great shots and feel comfortable and relaxed. I really love the end result photos, both of our engagement and wedding sessions, as to our guests. I would highly recommend Samantha to anyone who is considering her as a wedding photographer.Sent on 09/12/2020

Best Decision Ever!
There was no competition when we were looking into photographers for our wedding. I knew as soon as we met the first time that working with her would be delightful and stress-free, and that first instinct was spot-on! She is really communicative and knows her business well, so we trusted her completely. Our engagement photo shoot was a blast, we had *so* much fun, and the images she gave us were lovely and made us even more excited about how our wedding photos would turn out!
Her positivity, professionalism, and energy were infectious on The Day. I can't imagine how different things would have felt without her there, because her presence was both calming and enthusiastic, and I'm fairy certain she held my bouquet for me at some point while I was wrangling my dress through the grass. We could not wait to see what she gave us!
And wow--worth the wait--we were completely blown away when she delivered her work to us! Her use of natural light, scenery, direction (especially with squirrely relatives), creative eye were off the charts. These are truly heirloom quality photos, and we will treasure them forever!Sent on 06/09/2021

Amazing - contact Samantha now!
Short version: Samantha is an incredible artist who captures timeless photos that you will cherish! Go ahead & contact her now - she and the photos you will receive are worth well beyond the investment! I could not recommend her more highly!
Longer version: My husband & I both knew that photography was one of the most important aspects of the wedding that we would invest into. I found Samantha through a friend/coworker who had Samantha photograph her wedding and raved about her. After looking through Samantha's work online, contacting her, and doing a Facetime to meet, I knew immediately we had to have her there to capture our wedding day. After the pandemic hit, we had to postpone, and rescheduled for a year later. A few months after that, my husband and I decided to change our plans and instead have an intimate wedding day with a small group of family. Samantha was very understanding through this whole process and all the changes, and she ended up traveling to a different state with us for the big day (we are forever grateful for how accommodating she was!). The day of, she and her sister arrived ready to go, with a timeline and plan, having already sought out perfect spots the day before to take photos at. The entire day ran smoothly because of Samantha - she clearly knows exactly what she is doing! They were both professional, warm, welcoming, and made everyone feel comfortable and confident the whole day. All of our family members made comments about how great they were and how passionate Samantha is at her craft. She captured all of the photos we hoped for - portraits, candids, scenery photos. We knew from seeing her previous work that the images would be top notch, but we were blown away when we received our preview photos & again a few months later when all of the wedding images arrived. My husband & I sat together and went through them one by one - we relived every moment and every emotion from that day, and were simply amazed. Our wedding photos are timeless & classic - they perfectly captured our intimate wedding day and we will literally cherish these photos forever. I am so thankful to have crossed paths with Samantha & could not recommend her more highly! Thank you for everything Samantha!Sent on 04/23/2021
A bride was gracious enough to send us the photographs from her wedding taken by Samatha Jay Photography. We were happy to use them on our Wedding Wire site - Absoulutely stunning!
Samantha was a pleasure to work with. We did a wedding at the Maas building a couple years ago in Philadelphia, PA. We do event video... It was a lot of fun and her work was amazing. It even got featured on a respectable wedding blog. Kudos, BTW Samantha! She's a pro with a keen eye! Book her now before someone else does!
Samantha Jay Photography is amazing. Literally all her photos are beautiful, she can't take a bad photo. On top of that she's a gem. :)
