I’ve gone down a long road over my 40+ years as a professional photographer facing many creative challenges. I got my start as an intern photographer at the White House during the Carter administration in 1978. After working on both coasts I’ve ended back in Illinois and focus on documentary work, commercial assignments and portraits. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help with a project or photo assignment. The website for my consulting work for Mint Collective is at: https://mintcollective.net/
After 20 years I am retiring from my wedding photography practice. Here is an image of the last wedding that I shot in Rockford in November. This image was shot on film with a Konica Omega 200–the same type of camera that started out shooting weddings back in the 1970’s.
Some of my favorite wedding photos that I’ve shot in the Rockford, IL area this last year. For the bride that wants great images from their wedding, Jay Bryant is a wedding photographer that provides real moments and relaxed portraits, unlike other photographers.

I push hard in my photography work to have images become metaphors of the moment that I’ve captured. In talking with my couples on their wedding day I remind them this is one of the few times in their lives where the past, present, and future meet.
