MORE ABOUT JORDAN

Chelsey

I have been called many things by our brides: hype girl, sorcerer, and honorary bridesmaid are among some of my favorites. What have I done to earn these nicknames? I’ve pinned veils, fixed hair and makeup, bustled dresses, and most importantly, I’ve captured some of the most intimate and romantic moments between our brides and grooms. I’ll be on my A-game on your wedding day. I’m a “doer” that isn’t afraid to get my hands dirty, all while telling a funny story and taking photographs soon to be framed on your wall. I can’t wait to work with you, and hopefully earn a new nickname to add to the list!

I don’t live life like the ordinary; I love to adventure. I love to see. I love to experience. And I love to do it with my family by my side.

My happy place is taking in a baseball game in a new city. It’s Googling the best bourbon bar near me, wherever I may be. It’s campfires and tents with Chelsey and Sawyer. It’s binge-listening to podcasts on the highway. And for the past few years, it’s been behind the camera during wedding days.

On your wedding day I’ll be a calming presence. I’ll joke with the groom while making sure he’s on time for the first look. I’ll be ready with the next lens I know Chelsey will need before she even needs it, and I’ll be watching out for any minute details that just need a little tweak to be perfect. I can’t wait to meet you!

I love capturing both the big and small moments on a wedding day–from the groom hugging his mom away from the crowd, to the bride walking down the aisle–so that you can cherish them for the rest of your life.

Weddings aren’t cookie cutter – there’s no one-size-fits-all experience that works for everyone. That's where we come in.

We use both a medium format film camera and a digital camera to capture the wedding day as it organically unfolds. When we take a photo on our film camera, we are forced to slow down and photograph the moments that truly matter. The ones that make us FEEL something in that moment. It’s raw, it’s real, and it’s timeless. It’s a hands-on process with loading and unloading film, measuring the light, and ensuring the composition is perfect, but it's worth it to provide tangible photographs that will stand the test of a lifetime. Film isn’t about being trendy. It’s about providing our clients with a luxury experience all while creating a timeless heirloom wedding album that will be passed down for generations. When supplemented with digital photography, you'll get the timeless look of film without sacrificing the number of photos delivered to you. Be sure to ask us more about this during your consultation – we love talking film!
