Hi, I am Trisha Jay
I’m a NYC based Wedding, Portrait & Lifestyle photographer with a passion and an eye for things beautiful, awe inspiring, and timeless. My obsession with photography started in my student years during my travels around the world. I was immersed in the beauty of each country I visited, fascinated with capturing it's culture and eager to tell the story of its people through my photographs. From Africa, Europe, Asia and beyond, I experienced the life of the indigenous people, observed animals in their natural habitats and was inspired by the picturesque Castles, ancient ruins, and traditional costumes rich in color and of course the amazingly "delicious food" served. These experiences have made me appreciate life so much and have taught me to always live in the moment, capture it & cherish the memories.
So in 2008 I decided to take on professional photography full time and it's the best decision I have ever made. Who can say they "love" their job? Not many, yet I can definitely say "I do". I am practically married to it (lol) I guess that's why Weddings are my specialty! Photography is truly my passion & it drives me to perfect my craft and accomplish all of my goals. I keep on reaching for the stars and strongly believe in Divine timing, manifestation, positive affirmations, vision boards & the power of having a "great attitude". Basically, living your life to your fullest potential.
Raised in Brooklyn, NY with that NYC attitude (No, we're not mean! Fuhgeddaboudit) I love Sunsets in the Summer time, Mocha lattes in the Fall, Nicholas Sparks movies (watched them all at least a million times), endless Lava Cakes (really, not kidding) & Mexican food (who doesn't like a good taco?)
Let's just say my clients remind me of how beautiful life really is. Connecting with people through photography is rewarding in many ways. I love to share in the joy of Engaged couples and witness their journey up to and through the Big Day, the excitement in announcing new Additions to the family (pets included), the bursts of spontaneous belly aching laughter during Family sessions, the unexpected Surprises and lively Celebrations that life so often brings us.
I take my role as a Photographer very seriously. Planning and Customizing each and every event to create images that stand the 'test of time' is what I do best. I hope you always cherish life, savor your moments, and keep their memories sacred. Thank you for including me in your journey.
“After going through more wedding photographers than my wife and I can count, Trisha exceeded all of our expectations. From the start she was professional, responsive, and provided a great experience. Even at times when we were overwhelmed she kept us on track (newly weds understand how much people like that are appreciated). During the wedding she was amazing. To top it all off the final result of our photos were MIND BLOWING. Thanks for everything, you made our magical night even more amazing!!!”
