Kind Thanks | Reviews Jay Terry Photography

We are a London-based company and we were looking for a local photographer who could help us with headshots for our team members. We were able to find Jay through Google and were very pleased with the entire experience. He is a thorough professional who was able to set up his entire station, onsite, at our office location and made our staff feel comfortable and at ease during the entire process of photographing 18+ people. He also honoured specific re-touching requests and delivered high quality, professional headshots. We are very happy to have collaborated with Jay on this project and would most definitely recommend his services. The many years of experience surely reflects in his work!

“Jay’s portfolio speaks for itself but if you need a review, here ya go:
I have gone to Jay for portraits a couple of times now and I am always impressed, happy, and pleased with the quality of his work (the number of likes I received on the photos Jay took for me on social media was staggering). I wouldn’t go anywhere else; people with cameras are a dime a dozen but photographers are rare, Jay Terry is a photographer. Look no further, you found who you were searching for.”
~ Brandon Vecchiola in London, ON
“Jay is a true master of his craft. His knowledge, credentials and commitment to excellence resonate through his photos. He was a pleasure to work with, timely, professional and ultimately produced a great product. I have no hesitation to recommend his work, specifically head shots, to anyone looking for exceptional photos.”
~ Lindsay McDermott in London, ON

Jay just finished working on our IMMURE brand skincare images, and the quality is excellent. We needed the work done ASAP, and Jay delivered quickly and efficiently. Jay is extremely professional, and will be our “go-to” guy for commercial photography going forward. Highly recommended!
~ Immure

I was extremely pleased with Jay’s product photography work he recently completed for me. We have a new product being launched and needed the perfect shots for print and web. Jay had great ideas and made the whole process seamless. I look forward to doing more work with Jay Terry.”
Randall Hewitt in London, ON

Thanks again for the great portraits of all of our Directors from across the country. They’re exactly what we were looking for, and the quality is spot on. With just a few small tweaks to a normal “usual suspects lineup” pose, our group shots are eye catching and dynamic. We’d definitely recommend your work to others looking for the same type of images. Cheers!
~ Canadian Beef Cattle Check-Off Agency

My grandmother paid for a session a couple of years ago, but when she asked if she could give it to my sister and I instead, Jay was all for it. The session itself was amazing; the atmosphere was easy and comfortable, he talked through all his ideas for what he was thinking. He was patient, and it was all around just good fun. And the finishing product was beyond stunning. 10/10 would do again!
~ Heather in London, ON

When it came time to get headshots done, my first choice was Jay Terry. I had seen his work before, but had never stepped in front of the camera myself. He made the process easy. Jay creates beautiful images and has won several awards, but more importantly, he is down to earth and made me feel comfortable in front of the lens. Thoughtful suggestions, approachable style, and a down-to-earth manner helped the shoot run smooth. Jay’s prompt delivery, professional images, and personable style were perfect. Thank you Jay!
~ Katherine Krige, A Writer’s Take, in London, ON

“I want to personally thank Jay for taking such incredible pictures at our wedding. We appreciate your professionalism and character as well as the sense of humour and personality during this awesome day! We loved our pictures and are framing some asap. The subtle editing and the angels that were used were perfect. As a photographer myself, I look up to seasoned photographers like Jay in this city, because they really know what they are doing. Jay is just awesome and I highly recommend hiring him for your life events. THANK YOU for making this day super special for us!”
~ Samantha & Shane Hardgrave in London, ON

Jay was fantastic to work with! I needed a headshot fast, and within an hour of emailing him he’d responded, booked me for the next day. Within 48 hours of emailing him I had the digital headshots, and it was a beautiful pic. The pic was exactly what I wanted, and the workmanship is so excellent. Jay was personable and professional, and he made the shoot very easy. His prices were very fair compared to others I had shopped around, and worth every penny! I’d highly recommend Jay if you need professional and beautiful photographs! 5 star experience most assuredly!
~ Katharine Holland in Ottawa, ON

“I secured Jay Terry Photography for a Ground Breaking Event after I found his information on the internet.  His awards cited gave me the confidence to hire him without knowing clients, or anything about him as I am not from London.  I met Jay the morning of the event.  He arrived early and was very professional.  I described my expectations.  Jay captured the moments without ever being “in your face.” A day later I received the photos.  Amazing, incredible, beautiful are just a few words to describe the photos.  The photos captured the mood, told the story and captured expressive natural, staged and non-staged faces. I would recommend Jay Terry Photography to anyone looking for the best!  Jay has an astute eye; a gift of capturing the best with his camera, and he is a man of integrity.  The perfect combination!”
~ Ronna Goldberg, All Seniors Care, in Winnipeg, MB

After looking at a minimum of seven photographers websites in the London area, Jay Terry’s work was hands down the best. His originality and compositions grabbed me enough to set up a session with him. I certainly was not disappointed. I had some samples of poses conducive to what I required and he ran with it. When my friends see the the one pose in particular I have only heard “Wow” out of them. Thanks Jay!!
~ John Heaman in London, ON

I could never thank Jay Terry enough for including me in his Aqua Femina series. He is insanely talented and brings something new to every shot he takes! Many girls seem to think modelling is simply looking “pretty” for the camera but it is so much more than that. Art is something that gets people talking. Something that can make people feel different emotions and have different opinions. He was a pleasure to work with and never once made me feel uncomfortable. I highly suggest to any models and photographers to follow his work and maybe learn something from him.
~ Steva Plain in Sarnia, ON

I really want to say thank you for last weekend! It was such an incredible experience and I learned so much about the creativity process, so thank you for that as well. I got back the pictures and I love them, you really are one of the best. I also followed you on Instagram and your work there too is amazing. If I ever get the chance to work with you, I definitely won’t hesitate to hop on board. Hope things are well and hope I get to work with you again in the future!
~ Joshua Patrick, model in London, ON

“Thank You Jay, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your friendship and support during my photography placement at Jay Terry Photography over the last 6 months.
Directly assisting with on location shoots, attendance in the editing process, an in-studio session and a business proposal. Indirectly, paying attention while you built a relationship with your clients, turned a single job into repeat business, and found many opportunities to grow your business, you left nothing to want for with such a well rounded experience. Skills that have deepened through this placement have been resourcefulness, thinking outside the box, creating an experience and adding value to my work – all imperative to a healthy career in photography. As I move forward in my professional endeavours, I will take with me all that I learned under your guidance. It was an invaluable experience and I hope that I was able to provide some value to you as well.
Please let me know if there is anything that I can do for you in the future. As you have demonstrated time and time again, it takes both sides to build a bridge. Thank you again”
~ Suzanne, Fanshawe graduate in London, ON

We wanted to thank you again, Jay, for all the hard work and time you put into our wedding photography! You did such a fantastic job on everything! We love the album and were thrilled to show it off! Thanks for making the long trip to Punta Cana. We are forever grateful and we were so happy to see you at the reception (in London). Lots of love!
~ Chris and Steph in Fort McMurray, AB

Jay Terry you are one of the best, knowledgeable and professional photographers I have ever worked with. I have been in the industry for over twenty years so I think I know what I’m talking about. Keep being awesome!”
~ Jordan Buck in London, ON

“We were given a photo session with Jay as a gift on the birth of our son. This was our first professional shoot, so we weren’t sure what to expect. Jay was very professional and accommodating, and worked to put us at ease. He was flexible, realizing that newborns don’t always cooperate as we would like. The pictures came out fantastic! We had a positive experience, and would recommend Jay to our family and friends.”
~ Fiander Family in London, ON

“I had THE MOST AMAZING shoot with Jay Terry Photography. I was honestly blown away with how serious and professional he is down to the very last details. I love the way artist’s minds work because everyone’s is different and I always learn knew ways to see the world. One of the coolest people I’ve met for sure! Thank you for teaching me some amazing things that never even crossed my mind!”
~ Jessica, model, in London, ON

“When looking for a photographer to shoot our family, Jay came highly recommended from more than one person. He was was willing to work with our mess of, big, not so obedient dogs, as well our kids with our uniquely blended family. From the beginning of our correspondence, Jay was friendly, and super helpful. He answered all of my thousands of questions without any hesitation. As these portraits were a gift for our mom’s 70th, I was adamant that they be something special.
Both Jay and his assistant were professional and exceptionally patient throughout our morning. His sense of humour, and his ability to engage my kids made the whole morning a lot of fun. Jay also showed a great respect for nature throughout the shoot. If someone had an idea, he listened to us, and did his best to accommodate based on our surroundings and weather. Jay even made the preview of our pictures a great experience. The afternoon was relaxed and we felt no pressure to buy…although we of course did…because they were so amazing!! From start to finish, our experience was fantastic. Not to mention, the pictures are absolutely fabulous and EXACTLY what we were looking for.”
~ Sarah Duplisea in Sarnia, ON

“My life is about to change. I wanted my story told. I found and hired Jay Terry – not only because of his excellent photographic talent – but also because of how he connects with his clients. He did exactly what I wanted. Thanks so much Jay.”
~ Terry Walker in London, ON

Jay Terry is the most creative photographer I have met. His work and professionalism exceeded my expectations and am extremely impressed with the photos and backgrounds he chose for marketing my business. I can honestly say that the quality of his work is far superior to so many other photographers out there here in London, Ontario. Amazing work Jay!
~ Heather Virtue, Virtue Realty Inc, in London, ON

“I recently did a photoshoot with Jay Terry Photography, with the goal of creating something unique and visionary. As a Registered Massage Therapist, I wanted a visual branding that would elevate my craft and set myself apart from the rest. I also wanted something different…creative, unique, innovative, in my photos. Jay did just that and more. I cannot express how thrilled I am with the result! Thank you, Jay!”
~ Marina Featherstone, RMT, in Waterloo, ON

“I must tell you about the genius of Jay. My story is not normal. I did not want portraits of perfection. I wanted raw, I wanted real and I wanted to show my pain, my happiness and everything in between. It seemed like a completely ridiculous idea, but it was absolutely something I NEEDED to do to start healing after the death of my husband. Jay was incredible. I didn’t know what I wanted but through talking with him, he devised a plan. I’m not going to lie, I was nervous. I hate having my picture taken. After spending a lifetime shying away from cameras because I don’t like how my body looks, Jay focused on my face. And I discovered that I like my face. It tells a story and Jay drew that out of me. He just gets it. His artistry and vision are beyond compare and I am incredibly humbled by the results. He honoured my story and my “un-typical” requests and for that, I can never thank him enough.”
~ Lesley in Sarnia, ON

“I met Jay a few years ago through a mutual friend! We talked about working together and finally set a date. All the while, I’m so nervous and thinking, how the hell am I going to do this? But that’s the thing with Jay, he’s amazing at what he does. Not only did he help me with posing, me made me feel completely comfortable. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of working with him a few more times. And I am not only pleased with my photos, I’m happy with the entire experience! Again, thanks Jay!”
~ Sylvia Jae Houston in Wallaceburg, ON

“I’ve recently had my first boudoir session with Jay and I truly have never had a better experience with anyone else. It went amazingly. Jay made me feel very comfortable, and my pictures turned out beautifully. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is interested in trying out their own boudoir photos because he is the perfect person to get you feeling comfortable in your own skin, and feeling beautiful!!”
~ Julia in London, ON

“Just wanted to say Thank You for our wonderful family photos. As always you do remarkable work and you always make it fun for everyone!”
~ Valerie in Mount Brydges, ON

“Jay did a great job.  He was up-front, honest, and flexible with different portrait options, and he turned a high-quality finished product around very quickly.  I would definitely use him again.”
~ Josh Wood in London, ON

“I would just like to thank you once again for the portrait photos you did of me. I’ve now had a chance to study the finished product, and greatly appreciate the effort you’ve made to address all of the real- life challenges I presented to you. I will tell all my colleagues and friends about you! My best wishes for your continued success.”
~ Carol McWilliam in Woodstock, ON

“I cannot say enough GREAT things about my experience with Jay Terry Photography. I recently had my head shots done at his studio and more off-site pictures done with with rest of our firm for our brand new website – which is launching soon – you’ll definitely want to check it out, it’s going to be awesome. I can’t wait to do more work with Jay in the future. Thank you again!!!!!”
~ Melissa Clark in London, ON

~ Mallory Antone, Beauty by Mallory, in London, ON

“I knew I wanted to get some professional photos done. I am so happy I picked Jay to do them for me. His talent is apparent in my photos. Thanks, Jay! It’s amazing how a great photograph of yourself can make you feel!”
~ Casey Haas, Haas Insurance Group, in London, ON

“I couldn’t have dreamed 3 months ago that I would hire a fellow photographer to take glamour photos, let alone boudoir photos of myself. After all, I’ve had 3 kids and the body just isn’t what it used to be, but I knew Jay would use the right light, poses and lenses to capture some beautiful, flattering images for me and my husband. I was very nervous the days leading up to the session and still can’t believe I had enough courage to go through with it, but I did and I couldn’t be happier with the results and I am grateful for the experience. All of the images are beautiful. Thanks again, Jay.”
~ Kim Coffin in Waterloo, ON

“Thank you, Jay, for your incredible expertise capturing a once in a lifetime moment and crafting it so skillfully and so beautifully into an image that will never be forgotten. For anyone wanting a magazine worthy photograph, you are the man ! Thank you !! :)”
~ Wendy in London, ON

“After seeing one of Jay’s pics on Facebook I knew immediately I would get great photo’s no matter what. When we met I explained my work to him and felt like he already had a sense for what we could do. By 6:30 am on photo day I was in a pond up to my waist! Best decision I ever made! Thanks Jay!! I think you’re my forever photographer :)”
~ Angie Aristone in London, ON

“Having Jay come to our Fire Station to do a shoot was an awesome experience. Jay made it a very pleasurable experience which made us at ease during the shoot. The outstanding quality of product and service is why Jay is one of the best photographers in Ontario. Thanks for the great experience, Jay!”
~ Darren Allan in Petrolia, ON

“My husband and I chose Jay for our wedding and engagement photos. It was one of the best decisions we made during the wedding planning process. I have never met anyone as imaginative as Jay. Coming from a family that loves photography, I know that Jay is well versed in proper photography techniques and equipment, which is clearly evidenced by his many awards. Jay’s ideas are completely original and grand. My husband is a track coach, and we were able to have our engagement photos taken on location at the tracks from his university years at Western – outdoors at TD Stadium and indoors at Thompson Arena. The photos from our engagement shoot had some of our guests thinking that our save-the-date magnets were professional advertising.

“Our wedding photos left everyone breathless. Knowing that Jay was a creative genius, the night before our wedding, I wished for snow. The next morning was the first blizzard of the season. Our photos turned out looking like winter wonderland magic straight out of a magazine. Being a perfectionist, I would not have been satisfied with a photographer that could not capture the hard work, special details and love that filled our wedding day. If you want photography that looks like art and will be truly original, your choice should be Jay Terry.”
~ Candace & Bob in Toronto, ON

“Jay is an amazing photographer to work with!! He is VERY professional and makes you feel comfortable in every situation!! He is very talented and puts 110% into his work!”
~ Elisabeth Hall in London, ON

“We just got our pictures back from Jay, and all I can say is WOW, WOW,WOW! These are the most amazing pictures of us I have ever seen. My mother and I have quite the quirky relationship and Jay has a gift for capturing beauty in every shot he takes. We will treasure these pictures always, and plan on displaying them as a centrepiece in our home. Thanks so MUCH!!!”
~ Jennica in London, ON

“Paula and I had the pleasure of being photographed by Jay Terry recently! Jay was dream work with. He made it easy for a couple that is used to being behind the camera to step out in front of it! His posing techniques along with his knowledge of lighting was impeccable! Then to top it all off his final processing of the images took them to the next level! That in a nutshell is our professional photographers opinion. In layman’s terms… Jay is a super cool guy who creates kickass pictures time after time for his clients! Couldn’t thank him enough!”
~ Warne Noyce in North Battleford, SK

My experience with Jay was excellent. He’s a very talented individual with a real eye for what he does. He can take something and make it into a beautiful image. One you are sure to be more than happy with. It was a pleasure working with him and I hope that I will get the chance to work with him again some day – Thanks, Jay!”
~ Ashley in London, ON

“When it finally came time to have our Son photographed, I had a lot of choices when it came to photographers. What made my final decision easy was keeping in mind the saying, “you get what you pay for”. After seeing some sample images of Jay’s work and reviewing some very positive feedback, the decision was easy for us to hire Jay and do our Son’s first photo shoot. Our experience during the shoot was excellent! Jay worked quick and efficiently never missing a beat (not even to the wild and crazy likings of a hyped up toddler!) My wife and I are extremely pleased with the end result of the photo shoot, the prints look great and we’ll be able to enjoy them for years to come. Plans are already in the making for us to have our family portraits done by Jay this coming Fall season and I look forward to having another great experience!”
~ David McBride in Richmond Hill, ON

“Jay is a very talented, creative and professional photographer who always puts extra thought and effort into every detail in order to produce jaw-dropping photos. He is very fun to work with and I would highly recommend working with him! Thanks for the gorgeous photos and the wonderful experience, can’t wait to work with you again!”
~ Stephanie in London, ON

“Working with Jay as a photographer was a breath of fresh air. He knows exactly what he wants and how to achieve the results tenfold what you expect. I thoroughly enjoyed modelling for him, and I’m absolutely impressed by the images and the depth that each of them have. It was a great experience and he has my highest recommendations as a photographer! Thanks, Jay!”
~ Paul Comartin in Toronto, ON

“You have a terrific way of working with children to catch a perfect moment; their personality and the sparkle in their eyes. You made my mother’s day with her graduation photos! Thanks so much!!”
~ Andi in London, ON

“I had never done anything like this before and Jay made me feel so comfortable. Jay is very professional and patient. He has a very creative eye and I just love how the pictures turned out. I had such a fun and amazing experience that I would recommend Jay for any moments that are special that you want captured in time. Thanks again, Jay!”
~ Natalie in London, ON

“Jay, we loved the photos you took for our engagement photo shoot. To be honest you didn’t have the easiest subject to work with; Kev can’t stand cameras and shies away from them at all costs. But you were able to make us feel at ease and you captured some amazing natural looking shots. Your creativity and artistic touch really came through in our proofs. Thank you so much for these pictures, our family will enjoy them for years to come:) Simply Amazing:)”
~ Ash & Kev in London, ON

“I’ve never done anything like this before and going into this shoot I was really nervous and skeptical that the pictures wouldn’t turn out good…Jay made me feel so comfortable and gave me lots of good direction and had awesome ideas! I had a lot of fun and would recommend Jay for any type of photography. Thanks again!”
~ Rachel in St. Thomas, ON

“The photo’s you took of the National Aboriginal Day fireworks are excellent. Great colour and timing on capturing all of the different effects that were used that day. Thanks!”
~ Jason Anber (on-field fireworks supervisor) in Windsor, ON

“Shayne and I are very relaxed people who are not really interested in still and pose photography. We wanted to have some engagement photos done and we were excited when Jay suggested an abstract style photo session. Our experience with Jay was wonderful! He is a different breed of photographer as he captures moments as they happen. Jay doesn’t take too long to take a shot. When he sees it, he takes it! He has a keen eye for alternative images and is patient and aware of shot opportunities. Thanks for making us feel so relaxed Jay! You produced some fabulous pictures!”
~ Monica & Shayne in London, ON

Thanks so much. Being someone who hates having their picture taken, our shoot was very relaxed and enjoyable. No rigid, stiff, forced posing. The results were very personal, truthful photos of us that our friends and family adore.”
~ Jaret in London, ON

“Thank you for capturing our kids personalities on camera, those pictures reflect the moments we cherish the most. Our children had a great time. Thanks again !!!”
~ Ivan & Aleja in Guelph, ON
