"Jaye was an outstanding photographer. She got some really great shots and was very creative. We literally loved every single photo she took! She listened to our wishes and was very professional. Arrived on time and delivered a stellar product!"

Rheana F., Upper Marlboro, MD


Couldn't have asked for a better photographer!

We booked Mrs. Smith through GigSalad for our wedding ceremony and reception, and we could not have been more pleased! She was responsive and professional leading up to and during the event. Her friendly presence was enjoyed by all, and when we got the pictures, we were blown away! She did an excellent job of capturing the characters of everyone at our events in both posed and candid shots. When I went to a bridal expo last year, a $5000 photographer laughed at my budget, but joke's on her because Bird's Eye Photography exceeded our (already high) expectations on less than I had set aside for the budget!

"Jaye is The Best!!  I hired Bird's Eye Photography to photograph a big birthday celebration with a masquerade theme. Jaye Smith, owner and photographer, far exceeded expectations!! Her eye for detail and the quality of her work is impeccable. I will not look any further in the future when in need again and will highly recommend her to others!"

Donald R., Mitchellville MD



"Jaye really is amazing! From her photography skills, to her attention to the little details, to capturing unique, special moments, she truly is a master of her craft. What I like most about Jaye and the experience she brings is that she gets the job done effortlessly. She's on time so you don't have to worry about tardiness. She comes up with great, creative poses that aren't too much because I like for things to look spontaneous and natural. She knows how to handle and work with any family, TRUST ME. So if you're looking for a calm, cool, collected, and fun experience, choose Bird's Eye Photography."

"We hired Jaye Smith at Bird's Eye Photography for our wedding and engagement photos. Jaye did not disappoint for either task. Her work has been complemented by seasoned photographers as having an eye for shooting all sorts of couples, including LGBT couples. Her relaxed and calm demeanor make it easy to feel comfortable around her. She's very flexible and did her best to get every shot we requested. Check out her LGBT work by looking at our photos: Engagement -; Wedding -"

Ms. Tolbert is extremely professional and worked hard to capture all of the special moments we experienced that day. We feel she captured the love and support we felt that day from all of our family and friends perfectly! There were planned and unplanned shots and Mrs. Smith did not waste any time between shots and made sure to use her time wisely. She is a pleasure to work with and brought a very positive energy to our wedding day! We will highly recommend Bird's Eye Photography to our family and friends."

"Working with Jaye was absolutely a blessing. My husband and I both enjoyed working with her. She made us feel very comfortable and we had lots of fun taking our engagement pictures and wedding photos. ALLL of my photos came out great! My mother and mother in law loved them. Jaye even worked with me on my Thank You cards which were a absolute hit!. Professionalism is awesome she kept in touch not only with me but also my coordinators. She shocked me by being at my wedding rehearsal to see how things were going to go, where she could stand and where she would be able to get good pictures, in which I really appreciated! I plan on working with Ms. Jaye more within the future. Also my photo album is gorgeous and the video was clear and the editing was great!"

"I would like to personally add that it was the best experience ever! Jaye was patient, she was understanding of my needs, she offered suggestions that I had not thought of, and together we worked well and in the end (and throughout) the results were perfect on my big day. I have referred several friends her way, as I'm sure they too will be very satisfied!"

Nia M., Washington, D.C.



"Simply put, Jaye is amazing! I hosted a reunion in Maryland and I am so glad my older sister recommended Bird’s Eye Photography. From the moment Jaye responded to my first email after reviewing her website, I knew she was the one! After a constant battle with traveling between New Jersey and Maryland, Jaye was patient with me and understood the moments I was trying to capture during the reunion event. Through numerous emails and mailings, the event finally came and Jaye showed her talents! She exemplified professionalism! She was on time and set up by the time I arrived at the venue and captured moments I didn’t even know she saw during the event. She and her assistant was able to set up a station for all the attendees to take personal portraits as well. By the next day, the albums were online for guest to view and order more photos! For those that ordered photos during the event, the photos were at their homes by the next week! The photos were well cropped and were beautiful: great quality and blemish free!! I love Jaye’s work and I look forward to working with her moving forward with any event I host!"

Nancy H., Irvington, NJ

 "Jaye Tolbert is professional and friendly. She sees things with an excellent eye to detail. I love my wedding pictures and she gives you a good value for the price. I contacted her at the last minute and not only was she able to fit me in, she did an outstanding job. I can't thank her enough. Jaye was at the venue on time. Asked what special pictures I would have liked done beforehand and even accommodated pictures that some of my guests wanted. Jaye, I wanted to say thank you again for the wonderful photographs of my wedding and reception. You did a fantastic job! I love the professionalism and the care that you took with making everything so special."

"Bird's Eye Photography was very easy to work with and did a phenomenal job with getting my 7-month-old nephew to smile and relax for our family pictures. I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not an easy person to please, but Bird’s Eye Photography did a perfect job capturing the fun, smiles, and excitement in my nephew and daughter's eyes. I would definitely use the services again! Thank you for helping us capture our life stories!"

"Jaye provided an excellent service for my daughter's wedding. She was there for the wedding rehearsal and for every aspect of the wedding and reception. She even followed the limo heading towards the reception venue and took amazing evening scenery photos of the limo with the Washington, DC landscape as the background. The newly weds were very pleased with the photos. When we viewed the photos, it was as though we were back on that wonderful day of the wedding. She also video-graphed everything ensuring that very important and memorial shots were taken. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants detailed and professional photography, videography and service."

Wanda W.



"Jaye took my maternity, baby shower, and 6 month photos of my daughter. I was impressed with her work! She is professional, and I had fun taking my pictures. The atmosphere is very down to earth and comforting. She is very creative with getting the attention of my daughter and finding great props for my pictures. My session with Jaye took about an hour with the different wardrobe changes, and she made sure to listen and accommodate any request I had for my pictures and came up with new ideas as well. I recommend her photography services to all my family and friends who want great professional, artistic pictures."

Caryn C., Glenarden, MD
