Jay Lawrence Goldman is a modern Renaissance Man: a talented photographer, painter musician, and chef. He has the intuition and perspective of an artist, and his work reflects the true art and craft of photography. He has drawn from the variety of professional relationships formed during his ten years living in NYC, and now Los Angeles, to grow into a seasoned photographer with a number of specialties in a highly competitive field.

Professional and personable, with an amazing eye for capturing special moments, and a way about him that puts people at ease, it’s no wonder that Jay is a sought-after wedding photographer. On My Fox LA’s Hot List, he was voted as one of the Top 5 Wedding Photographers in Los Angeles. Walter Shepard Publisher/Editor-in-Chief of Inside Weddings Magazine, had this to say, “Jay is an excellent photographer, both technically and personally. He is easy to spend time with and that is important on a wedding day. He also knows how to capture the moment and anticipates them.”

In addition to print, Jay has been featured on America’s Next Top Model multiple times; one episode brought the models to the JLGphoto Studio. Jay photographed the model challenge “Flaunt your Flaw-Hide your Flaw,” and he had to pick the winner! According to Jay, having such a wide variety of clients and photography jobs is challenging, exciting, and incredibly inspiring.

Jay and his wife, award-winning fine jewelry designer Pamela Froman, have created a studio oasis which they share -- a sanctuary within the city. It is located in the bustling Miracle Mile area of LA and it filled with natural light, fountains, and plants. Artwork, photos, and sculpture fill the front showroom. Behind the magic curtain in the back you will find a complete digital shooting studio. Their 11 year old son also has a workshop there.
