Did you know?
I am a full time wedding photographer and videographer of 7 years and have likely been to your venue multiple times. Based in St Augustine, the Team and I regularly travel to Jacksonville( my hometown, the Emerald Coast(Destin, Miramar, Pensacola, Panama City), Savannah, Daytona, and Ameila Island exclusively for weddings. If you need help finding vendors like MUAH's, Awesome DJ's, or beautiful locations for your sessions, I can help!
My photography artwork has not only been featured in the Knot or WeddingWire, but over 20 physically published magazines. Jay Grubb Photography is an approved, preferred vendor at over 50 venues, exclusive member of the St Augustine Wedding & Event Association, and with 25+ wedding planners, we always deliver an amazing wedding experience with photos and videos you'll love for the years to come.
Prints & Albums
Ordering beautiful crafted prints and canvases has never been easier. I prefer to keep printing options for my clients on the affordable side in relation to cost, by offering Premium Museum Quality Prints with high-grade ink and materials. 4x6's are as low as $4.00. Many photographers charge $8-$20 a print for the exact same materials used. This is not a Walmart quality print or canvas.
After your session or wedding, in your premium online gallery, you will be able to order premium prints at fantabulous price, design and order Save the Date cards, Invitations, Thank You cards, and more. Most orders ship within 24-48 hours even if you have a destination wedding.
I do give discounts for military couples and weekday weddings. Please reach out to me for more info.
Fun Facts & Info
Jay uses a full frame Canon Mark IV & premium Canon lenses and wireless flashes & strobes for stunning color quality, detail, and lighting effects. A huge benefit beside the quality of a the Mark IV is that every photograph is captured to 2 memory cards for an instant backup.
I personally love providing suggestions for better lighting, backgrounds, and epic locations for sessions and First Looks.
We ALWAYS bring duplicate backup hardware to every event! This includes cameras, audio recorders, mics, numerous batteries, lighting, and over 1TB of memory cards. Don't worry, we keep all our gear safely hidden to maintain a visually appealing ceremony & reception too.
We know lighting! I personally have saved many couples' experiences during receptions as a photographer, because a DJ's or venues lighting setup didn't effectively light up a dance floor outside for the guests to actually see the First Dance or friends giving toasts. I keep this lighting in my vehicle always juuuuuusstttt in case and is complimentary.
Jay is a gear geek and loves trying new tools!
For filming, we use up to 3 mirrorless Sony DSLRS to capture multiple angles of key moments in your day especially the ceremony, with professional lav microphones and recorders, updated DJI gimbal stabilizers, and a Phantom 4 Pro drone(ranked higher in quality than the Mavic 2 series).
Jay is a certified FAA drone pilot and has been flying for over 5 years for cinematic shots to add to our clients videos.
We are always praised with our amazing lighting LED setup during receptions(when needed) that is professional, unobtrusive, while delivering a higher production value to our videos. We do not use cheesy lights mounted on top of cameras that "blind" guests.
We have over 64TB of hard drive storage, raid backup arrays, and online photo storage, to safely keep your memories till delivery...WOW!
