Testimonials

"Our new office needed artwork and part of that included photos of local landmarks for our walls. After doing online research and attending art shows, we chose Jay Rasmussen Photography. Jay was simply stellar to work with from start to finish. He was always responsive in his communication and never dropped the ball. I contacted him to place an order and he offered design assistance for our space with several ideas within our budget. We ended up taking all of his suggestions and are so happy with the results, including a custom photo for our conference room that is just fabulous! I wasn’t expecting the level of customer service Jay provided. His turnaround time was actually ahead of schedule and he came on site personally to install. We had a visitor say “it looks like an art gallery in here”. Yes, it does!"

"My company, Emmons and Olivier Resources, Inc., is a water centric engineering firm that specializes in protecting and improving our lakes, rivers, streams and natural resources. We had been bringing in various artists to show their work and grace our walls. Suddenly we found ourselves with an office of bare, very ugly walls and I picked up the phone and called Jay. I had met Jay at the Stillwater Art Fair and purchased several pictures. Within hours, Jay came through the office and came up with a game plan, that included an employee purchase plan, and we had more than a dozen pictures on the walls within two days. Jay was very accommodating and did a great job, and, of course, his art speaks for itself."

"For any commercial clients considering Jay Rasmussen to help with their office design, let me share our story. We had just moved into our new offices, comprising about 30,000 square feet of space. We already had made the decision to name our conference rooms after various Minnesota cities and towns and had begun to evaluate various design and artwork options. Then, we fortuitously came across Jay’s storefront that had opened at the Mall of America during the holidays. Needless to say, we were stunned by the vividness of Jay’s photography and how much his pictured “popped” due to the photo-on-aluminum process that he uses. We quickly contacted Jay and asked if he was willing to help. He immediately jumped all-in, meeting us at the office, taking the time to evaluate where artwork should be placed, and most remarkably, providing photo ideas that came from each of the various cities and towns for which our conference rooms were named. Throughout this process, Jay was the consummate professional, being great in his communications, forthcoming in his suggestions of how to bring our office to life, and extremely quick to move from concept to full installation. Jay managed the entire process for us, from helping us select the right photos to positioning of the artwork to the flawless installation to being extremely reasonable in offering aggressive pricing. In total, we purchased 38 of Jay’s prints, and our office is stunningly beautiful, with his pictures throughout the office feeling like “home” – especially for those of us native Minnesotans who recognize so much of Jay’s art. When our employees returned to the office after Jay had completed the installation over a weekend, they were stunned by the beauty of Jay’s work and how much it added to the ambiance of our office. We could not be happier or more impressed with Jay’s work and would offer the highest recommendation for his services!"

"About two years ago my business added 1,000 square feet of workspace for our staff. We wanted the space to be very welcoming to our clients and staff because the area has very little natural light. I was referred to Jay by a client. I researched and reviewed his work both on his website and in-person at his Mall of America gallery. I was very impressed by the quality of his photography. Because I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted, Jay offered to travel to our office that was about three hours from his studio to do an in-person review of our space, measure and give us a proposal. He submitted a design proposal that included my vision and offered to install all his work as well. I was so pleased and relieved, because not only was his design and artwork absolutely beautiful, he met all his deadlines and was in constant communication with me and my staff to coordinate all the details. His pricing was within our budget and there were no extra costs or overages from the project. In addition, the entire office was very impressed, but most importantly our staff is super happy to have a cool, inviting space to work in. Finally, our clients rave about the artwork, and have made many comments about the space looking like an art gallery, and in some cases have asked for Jay’s information. I couldn’t have been more pleased with my experience working with Jay, and I anticipate using Jay for another office we are updating in the near future."

"Jay Rasmussen’s photography is displayed in my home and office. When my company moved into its new suite, Jay provided superb design and installation service. We used a combination of his metal and canvas products. He was responsive to incorporating our ideas and always delivered on his promises. Whether it was providing layout and size recommendations, pricing quotes or redesigning a wall layout, Jay is a pleasure to work with. If you are a company or individual looking to outfit your office or home with fabulous photography, I recommend Jay Rasmussen."
