Jay Eads Photography bio picture

“To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.” – Mark Twain

Shared joy is one of my favorite aspects of the wedding day. Bride and groom, family members, friends, father daughter dances… sometimes I just sit back and smile throughout the wedding day. Anna and Noah’s wedding is one of the most joy-filled events I’ve seen in my time behind the camera. I’m not one to exaggerate with the “awesome-sauce, amazeballs, in love with love” BS that is rampant in the wedding world. It just so happens to be the honest truth that I walked away with a sense of appreciation for what was about the happiest wedding I’ve ever been a part of. I like to write about what I see, what is memorable, and what is real. Anna and Noah are real, joyful, and in love.

Enjoy this sweet couple who needs no embellishment or exaggeration.

    Laurie Parke Glazener - Truly a joy to witness through this album. Congratulations Noah and Anna~

Kaitlin and Jim laugh and smile and cry in equal proportions, just the way I like it. I’m a fan of a well-balanced wedding:) We had great weather and a super-moon, an incredibly classy couple, and a fun bridal party, it truly was a great day. So many moments stand out to me and even over-shadow the super-moon. The giggles during their first look. The way Kaitlin clung to her dad’s arm, waiting to go down the aisle. The first dance, complete with bad clapping. The laughing during the portrait time. It’s not such a bad job… joining people on their wedding day.
