Unlike the DMV, Jay Young Photography is dedicated to delivering customized portraits that capture the style, personality, and correct number of heads of their subjects. Named a Photographic Craftsman by the Professional Photographers of America for his dedication to the profession, "Mr. Jay" (as he's affectionately known) also handcrafted his custom studio. The various stone and wood façades of the Tuscan-style building serve as backdrops to perfectly tilted chins and mistimed eye-blinks alike.

Once you've finished casting your family as characters in the sword-and-sandals beach-party train-robbery caper of your dreams, Mr. Jay will use his retouching sorcery to transform your favorite image into diversely sized prints, as well as a handsome Facebook image that doesn't involve you hoisting a red plastic cup.
