When it comes to your wedding day, the cake will be eaten and the flowers will wilt, but your photos are forever. Tucker and I wanted the best photos, but I was embarrassed to even ask Jud to be our photographer because the quality of his photos suggested a large price tag. However, not only did he exceed our expectations with his product, his pricing allowed for us to have all of the wishes on our photography check list AND he didn't put a timer on our photo shoots or the wedding day. I can't thank Jud enough for having our photos (plus extras!) on my doorstep 5 days after he took them, or for helping make our wedding day fun and stress-free.

I had the pleasure of working with Jud on my engagements, bridals, and on my wedding day. He worked with my schedule and met my specific requests.

Jud was laid back and fun to work with. He has a great sense of humor, provides good direction and is very creative. I felt confident in Jud because he was a professional with a lot of wedding experience. When picking my favorite photos, I had many great shots to choose from!

When I got engaged, there was never a question about who would be my photographer. Jud Davis photography is a symbol of creativity and vision that cannot be matched. He went above and beyond to see my vision and work with my busy schedule and short time frame to make it all happen, without compromising the quality of service he is known for. My bridal session was relaxed and fun. I had never felt so beautiful and confident about being in front of the camera.

Our wedding day was the truest testament of Jud's professionalism and talent. We had 32 people in our wedding party and we both have large families. I was really nervous about getting all the shots we wanted with that many people. Jud kept me calm throughout the entire day and was so patient with all involved. We were laughing and having a blast all day and he captured each moment perfectly! He was with me each step of the way and attended to my every want. More importantly, he was able to see Josh's vision as well. The pictures with the rock crawler were his dream come true and nothing made me happier than to see him so happy on that day.

My pictures were unbelievably amazing and I am so thankful for each moment he captured. People are still talking about them and even other professional photographers have commented on the quality of the photographs and the unique vision of the photographer. We could not be happier and feel so blessed to have Jud capture our day and our love. He has our highest recommendation!

My husband and I agreed early on in the wedding planning process, at the top of our list was choosing an amazing photographer. After showing him only a few of Jud’s photos, he was sold. He quickly noted Jud’s incredible eye for photography that lends his work to not only being professional and of highest quality but creative and unique. Jud knows how to capture moments and moods in a way that makes you feel something.

Jud was fantastic from beginning to end. We had a sudden death in our family which temporarily put everything on hold, followed by everything on fast forward. Jud was adaptable and understanding.

When taking our engagement and wedding photos, Jud was a delight to work with and SO MUCH FUN. He is wildly personable and encouraging. He added to the joy of our day and I will never forget that. Choosing Jud to be our photographer was an easy decision to make and choosing him again will be even easier.

My bridal session:

Jud is the only photographer I would have chosen for my bridal pictures and if I had to do it again, he would still be the only one I choose. He goes out of his way to get unique pictures as well as the classic ones every bride wants. I could not have been happier with the way my pictures turned out. He makes you feel at ease which in turn, makes your pictures look incredible! He listens to what the bride wants and even makes suggestions that make Jud Davis bridal pictures stand out among the rest.

My wedding day:

My wedding day was so much calmer because Jud knows how to keep things moving and make sure the pictures look incredible. I feel like he really listened to what I wanted and then gave me exactly that. Even my mother said he made a huge difference in the attitude of the day. I’ve been in weddings where the photographer sits back and does the bare minimum. Jud is not that photographer. He took pictures I didn’t even think about asking him to take and because of that, I have incredible pictures to keep forever. Jud Davis is the first photographer I ever recommend when someone asks for a wedding photographer.

A pleasure to work with, Jud was considerate and very accommodating through the entire process of engagement, bridals, and the big event! His talent shines through his work!

The only thing that was a must-have for my wedding was Jud as our wedding photographer. I knew that my wedding was going to be a complete blur and I was confident that Jud would be able to capture everything that was so special about that day. I had the opportunity to work with him before on photoshoots and honestly, just one photoshoot with Jud convinced me that he was going to be the only one that could capture my wedding day to the fullest. Jud listened to what I wanted and made awesome suggestions based on his extensive wedding photography experience on how to capture the most on my special day while also making sure everything ran smoothly. He will make you laugh and make sure that you are comfortable around a camera, even if you are the most camera-shy person out there. 10/10 recommend Jud for your photos, wedding or otherwise!

When thinking about a wedding, a great photographer is one of the most importent things to have. After all, photographs are the memories you can keep forever. After looking through his work and seeing what a wonderful job he did, my husband and I decided to have Jud take our engagement pictures. I became very anxious about this, having someone that you have never met before take your picture for one of the most importent days of your life can be nerve wrecking or at least thats what I thought. We soon found that Jud was everything that we had hoped for and so much more. All of the stresses and worries quickly disappeared. I soon learned to trust Jud and let him take over. One of the qualities I enjoyed about Jud the most was that he listened to exactly what we had to say and also gave his opinion. I have received so many of compliments about our wedding pictures. I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a wonderful photographer who truely loves and cares about his clients.

Since getting married my dress hasn't been out of the bag, my shoes out of the box, or my hair like it was on my favorite day. What I have done is flip through tons and tons of pictures, each time finding a new favorite. Jud was an asset to both my wedding day and the planning process in ways that I would not have expected. There are a lot of good photographers out there, but experience and an eye for detail is something you can not buy. From planning out the day in a way that made the timeline make sense, keeping us on track, reminding me several times that I should be relaxed, and making the vision and look I wanted the pictures from my wedding day to reflect, Jud did it all. Jud’s day started when mine did and didn’t end until my husband and I left, carefully capturing every detail of the day. The best part is how I continued to feel prioritized as a customer when I received my fully edited pictures so quickly. My best piece of advice for those who are wedding planning is to invest in the future of your day! There are a lot of things that can go wrong on your day...booking Jud as your photograph will guarantee that at least one thing will go right!

The last year has been crazy. I graduated high school and married my high school sweetheart. When someone gets married, one of the biggest decisions you will make is who your photographer will be. For some, it is a very hard decision. For me, it was easy. I met Jud Davis when he made my senior pictures. Because of our connection and friendship, upon posting the announcement of my engagement on social media, Jud reached out to see if I would like for him to be my wedding photographer. Honestly, I thought he would be way too expensive given the quality of his work, but, surprisingly, he worked within my budget and gave me everything I wanted for my wedding photos. He always provided the best quality pictures, He always went above and beyond making sure I was IN LOVE not only my pictures, but myself, as the pictures were being made. He always had the pictures to me a day or two after the shoot. He will forever be my go to photographer! I have never been disappointed with any of his work. He is definitely THE BEST!

First of all, Jud Davis is an awesome person AND photographer. Daniel and I gave him a little summary about ourselves and he took care of the rest! Jud always made sure it was all about the bride and groom because it was "our day."

Daniel and I wanted something "different" and that's exactly what we got! Jud found the perfect spot for engagements and bridal portraits and absolutely the perfects SHOTS. Daniel and I gave Jud our suggestions and we let his creativity go to work!

If you want someone there with you from beginning to end, Jud Davis is the one. Jud said that he would photograph every moment from the salon to us heading off on our honeymoon and that is just what he did. Jud did not miss a moment of the wedding, he photographed every detail that we had spent so much time preparing.

As stressful as wedding planning is, throughout the engagements, bridal portraits and wedding, Jud always made sure the bride and groom were happy and taken care of.

Before it was even time for me to plan a wedding, I knew my top priority was going to be photography. Because the photographer you choose for your wedding is the person you are entrusting to capture the most important moments of your life, it is what I valued the most. A pretty white dress I'll never wear again...food will be eaten at many different times throughout life....but pictures last for generations. When I dreamed of the best choice I could make for my wedding day, that person wasn't going to be anyone else...only Jud Davis.

Why Jud, you ask? I had been exposed to his talent because he is a photography professor at my alma mater, Freed-Hardeman University. Fun fact: he actually took his first pictures of me at a Professional Club Masquerade Ball. While I never had the opportunity to get to know him personally, I was able to admire his work from weddings to promotional shoots to sporting events and much more. Several people I know used Jud for their wedding, engagement and bridal photos, and they all looked flawless. So when my now husband and I got engaged, I started photographer shopping. I had set a budget in my mind, and finding good quality (in my very picky opinion) was hard to come by. On a whim, I decided what could it hurt to reach out to Jud through his website. To my surprise, Jud was able to include engagements, bridals, and our wedding under what I had budgeted! I was elated!

Working with Jud was so easy. He worked with our schedule. He made my picture-hating husband feel comfortable and more laid back as he joked with us to get us to laugh. He helped my mom and I pick off "stick-tights" or "beggar-lice " when we went trumping through the woods to get the best bridal shots. He was great about telling us what to do and how to position everyone to get the best quality picture. He was patient and gave good directions to all involved so that we could get all the pictures we could want at our wedding. He was the one who encouraged us to leave our reception asking "Don't you have a honeymoon to get to?" He was even so thoughtful as to bring a polaroid camera so we had some pictures to take with us on our wedding day! That was so special to me, and I loved having those shots to remember our special day until we had access to our entire album. If you're looking for the best photographer for your special occasion, Jud is the man!

Jud Davis has an eye for remarkable, unique photos....he captured my engagements, bridal portraits, rehearsal dinner, and wedding day. He is fun, laid-back, and makes the photo session comfortable for everyone. I love that he was there for every important moment on our wedding day, from the first sight to leaving in the getaway car...the pictures were beautiful. I like that the photos captured our personalities and most importantly, capture our joy during such an important time in our life. Jud will go beyond your expectations and make sure you are 100% satisfied. He has a great positive attitude and met our photo requests without hesitation. We have received so many compliments on his work and am thankful we chose him as our photographer. I am excited to use him for photos of future events in our lives!

When planning my wedding, I considered choosing the right photographer just as important as choosing the right dress. I wanted someone who would use creativity and enthusiasm when capturing one of the most important events of my life. Without a doubt, I knew Jud Davis was the photographer I needed.

As someone who has always felt a little awkward in front of a camera, Jud never failed to build my confidence and make every shoot an exciting experience. Whether it was running around Jeckyl Island at sunrise or climbing driftwood beach trees at sunset, Jud was constantly going above and beyond to capture so many incredible moments.

Looking back, my family and I can’t imagine hiring any other photographer. We absolutely love Jud for giving us beautiful forever memories.

It was an easy decision in choosing who my wedding photographer would be: Jud Davis. Hands down. He has an abundance of experience in the industry with the amazing photos to prove it. I knew I was getting someone I could trust, as well as someone who would beautifully capture all the moments that were important to me.

I had so much fun when he took my bridals! He makes you feel incredibly comfortable and confident. I laughed the whole time and it was such an enjoyable experience! On the wedding day, Jud was there for every second, always making sure to capture each moment with creativity and professionalism.

You can tell that Jud loves what he does by the quality and style of his pictures. I am so thankful to have so many beautiful photographs to remember the happiest day of the life. I could not have asked for a better photographer. And I wouldn't have found one that was easier to work with or one that made me laugh as much as Jud Davis.

Choosing a photographer is one of the most important and difficult decisions in planning a wedding. It can be a daunting task. Many brides-to-be spend countless hours scrolling through ads for photographers in attempts to find someone creative and affordable, whose pictures are unique as well as classic. If you’ve found yourself in a similar scenario, look no further. Jud Davis photography will meet and exceed all of your expectations, no matter how outrageous they might be.

Jud went above and beyond for both my bridal portraits and wedding, and he delivered exceptional results. Though I lived in Georgia at the time of my engagement, Jud agreed to meet me anywhere for my bridal portraits. We settled on Chattanooga, where we spent an entire day at different sites including the Read House Historic Inn, a Ferris wheel in a park, and the top of Lookout Mountain. At 8:00 that evening, we arrived at Ruby Falls where Jud had set up a private tour for our last set of pictures. Trekking underground for half a mile, we gingerly navigated the muddy, cavernous trail, carrying heavy equipment as well as my wedding dress. Finally, we arrived in front of that gorgeous waterfall, where we spent an hour taking the most unique pictures I’ve ever seen. It was an adventure but well worth the effort as the pictures were absolutely incredible!

Jud’s talent and creative genius carried over to our wedding and reception in the North Georgia Mountains. I had complete confidence that Jud would capture the best moments of the happiest day of my life. I was happy and thankful that Jud was behind the camera, knowing that his exceptional eye for detail and design would provide amazing results. He did not disappoint! The pictures were spectacular and still take my breath away. It’s the small, simple moments of joy and love that Jud captured on my wedding day that are my favorites and make me so happy to have chosen him as my photographer.

I only wanted one thing for my special day: the best.

As a professional wedding designer the standard I set for my special day was at the highest level. Every vendor used for my wedding was one that I knew could meet my high expectations. And when it came to photography, I knew exactly who was needed... Jud Davis.

Jud is a creative genius behind a camera and I am continually impressed by his ability to see the world in a different light. He is a gifted photographer, artist, and friend who has a desire to produce exceptionally unique work for each client. This is precisely why Jud Davis Photography was chosen to capture the best moments of the happiest day of my life. Jud has helped capture the essence of each special event with enchanting innovation and I will be forever grateful for the beautiful products he continues to deliver and will most definitely call upon him to be there for the next stages of life.

I am so thankful I chose Jud Davis Photography to complete all of my wedding photos. Jud made sure that everything went smoothly and he was so understanding and flexible with all wedding day activities. The photos were exactly what I wanted, plus the added bonus of Jud making us all laugh and feel encouraged throughout the day.

I am also so glad that I chose Jud because - not only did he capture my wedding day - he captured my bridal pictures. They turned out better than I could have imagined and he made me feel so comfortable the whole time.

Jud’s photography work is exquisite and I will always cherish these photos and the work that he did to capture my day.
