On a wedding day, that imperfection is what guides my lens — a shadow falling asymmetrically across your shoulder, the chaotic clinking of glassware amid setting sunlight, the wrinkled hands of your grandparents entwined as they sway to their favorite Dean Martin tune… Imperfection is what sets your wedding apart from every other.

Imperfection is also the first flash of evidence of something else I see as essential to my work: authenticity. My images are meant to be relics of who you really were during a moment in time — they are evidence of you feeling truly loved, beautiful and in awe of the world around you, all in your own particular way. 

I look for subtle emotional cues, unexpected collections of people/places/things and the way your wedding interacts with the real environment it’s staged in. If I am doing my job right, your gallery will be a visual distillation of what you care about, how you affect others and the distinct nature of the love held between you and your partner.

I believe imperfection is what drives every great story. 

“Jordan photographed our engagement and wedding and we couldn’t have asked for a better vendor and experience! ...Her photos are not overly staged, authentic, and truly reflect the moment and emotion.
For our wedding, she went above and beyond. She was nearly invisible throughout the day and was VERY conscious of everyone’s time and worked quickly with great direction while not being overly directive. We had multiple guests comment on this and how much they appreciated it. We love how she captured close ups of our guests throughout the night as well as all the details of the venue and day— both things we weren’t fully able to enjoy in the chaos of the day. Her presence is friendly yet very professional and calming... Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend Jordan to anyone getting married!"

“What a professional! Jordan was a dream to work with from start to finish. She was organized and very communicative, helping to bring our wedding vision to photographic life. She helped our day run smoothly and easily. She impressed everyone on-site, including our families, wedding party, and planner. But the best part of all are the final photographs, which are absolutely stunning. She delivered exactly what we wanted in terms of aesthetic and feel, managing to capture [the] joy and exuberance of the day while also giving us romantic and cinema driven portraits as well. We couldn’t recommend working with her highly enough.”

Jordan is the best investment you can make when planning and budgeting for your wedding! She is truly dedicated to her craft, and is so much fun to work with. Throughout the planning process she provides questionnaires, sample timelines, and is quick to address any questions via email. But the real magic begins when she starts capturing the day. She was incredibly enthusiastic and made us instantly feel comfortable in front of the camera. She strikes the perfect balance between directing you in order to capture the shot, and manages to catch all of the natural moments in-between. She was the solo photographer at our wedding, yet multiple guests swore that there were two of her! She scouted out many locations within our venue that she wanted to use, and the results are wonderful. She is simply the best!!

“Jordan was the perfect photographer for our wedding. She listened to what we wanted for a photography style for the event (mostly candids, not too many staged photos) and she helped us feel really comfortable taking portraits before the wedding, which did not come naturally to us. We just got the photos back and they are amazing! Her photo sharing website is great too, we're working now on ordering prints and an album. Can't recommend Jordan highly enough!”

The Process

I. Introduction

This phase includes your inquiry, a discovery meeting to ensure we are a good personal fit and that I understand your priorities, followed by a proposal and booking.

II. Engagement

During this phase, we will take your engagement photos if that is something you opt to do, and I may connect with you or your planner about your aesthetic direction.

III. Refinement

These will be the final few months before your wedding, during which I will work with you or your planner to home in on the logistics of your celebration.

IV. Celebration

What we’ve all been waiting for! I will shoot your wedding day. You will receive a few images very shortly after so you can spread the news.

V. Curation

I will take a deep breath and evaluate your day. Then I will edit and curate your wedding day so that as you relive it, it is both beautiful and contextualized. 

VI. Gallery Delivery

Your gallery will be available on an online platform that allows you to view and download your images in both web-size and high-res formats. I will deliver your gallery within six to ten weeks. Delivery times are really dependent on my workload. Please note that weddings that take place earlier in the year tend to have shorter delivery times and those closer to the end tend to have longer delivery times. This may be a good time to mention that I limit the number of weddings I take specifically so that I can put a lot of time and energy into the ones I do work on.

VII. Product Design and Delivery

Your gallery will be connected to a shop full of amazing print product vendors and they offer everything from loose prints to calendars to fine art wedding albums. You can work on the selections yourselves or you can hire me at an hourly rate to design products for you.

How to Book

After our discovery call, you will receive a proposal based on what we discussed. It may include an engagement session, rehearsal dinner coverage, a second or even third photographer — all depending on the needs of the event. A signed contract and a retainer amounting to 50% of the total estimated fee is required to confirm your booking and ensure your date is held. The balance will be due 30 days prior to your wedding date.
