My husband and I got married this past May of 2013. Since we were having tent wedding in the Shenandoah and were doing a lot of labor to get the property ready for the wedding, I really wanted a photographer who was going to capture the beauty of the land and all of the little details we were putting a lot of effort into (lawn games, hay bale sofas, wheat and lavender around the property, cute signs, etc.). My sister and I looked around a lot online for the perfect photographer and when we met Jordan at her house for the initial consultation, I knew that she was the one. I knew she would fit right in at our "rustic chic" tent wedding in the Shenandoah. We hired her several months before the occasion, but she was always in contact with us up until the big day. I sat on the phone with her the day before discussing all the little details, even what she was going to wear so she would fit right in at the wedding. We hired both Jordan and a colleague of hers to capture our wedding and were very pleased with the results.
She has a fabulous eye and captured all of the moments we were hoping she would, but without being intrusive. She’s incredibly friendly and pleasant to work with. We received out digital copies about two months after the wedding and were amazed at the amount and quality of the photos. I would highly recommend Jordan for anyone looking for an amazing photographer.
Jordan is really expensive, even with the custom package she made us. But we made it barely affordable and love every single picture she took. There is a reason she is so expensive: JORDAN KOEPKE IS THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER IN THE WORLD!
I couldn’t be happier with the pictures from my wedding. I was worried that I would look too posed and not myself for these very important pictures but she really put everyone at ease. My pictures look so artistic and natural. She was able to capture the emotion of the day in the pictures, even the moments I would never have seen. I was touched by the pictures of my grandparents walking hand in hand looking so in love, and the first moment my new husband and I thought we were alone. The moments were not posed or planned but I am so glad she had the eye to take them and let the moments happen. She was wonderful to work with every step of the way.
I spoke with a number of photographers when I was planning our wedding. Jordan's enthusiasm just blew me away. I knew right away that it would be wonderful to work with her. Needless to say, Jordan is very professional, extremely talented, patient, very friendly. But most of all, she always went over and beyond and left no stone unturned in making our wedding look fabulous! I am very grateful to her hard work and talent. If I could give her 20 stars here, I would!
I have been a client of Jordan's for four years. She has photographed various aspects of my life to include my head shots, my wedding, my pregnancy, and photos of my two year old son from infancy to toddlerhood!
One of the things I love about Jordan is her ability to think outside the box and use her creativity to capture the personalities in the photos. I will show up to her studio with a few props, but she always has a ton of other ideas. We have fun with the sessions, laughing and experimenting the entire time. The results are unique, professional and timeless photos.
When "on location", Jordan uses her keen eye to make the entire environment her studio and canvas. She is constantly scanning for the best shot and moving around the entire time so as to not miss a thing. She is actively involved and committed to the shoot and I couldnt ask for a better photographer!
Jordan is fun, personable and very professional. She is an amazing artist, and if you let her be creative you will have the envy of everyone in your wedding album. Running around for 2 hours before our ceremony sounds like a chore but was honestly the most fun we had all day. A delight as a person and someone I will keep in my phone book for later. Also, AMAZING turn around time! Most people pay more and wait a year to get everything, we had everything in a few months with some photos the next day. We highly recommend her, worth every penny and a wonderful experience.
Jordan is an amazing wedding photographer. She has a magnificent artistic eye. (An example being when we were exiting she had the guests’ line up along the edge and use the bubbles we provided and it is an awesome picture). Jordan not only captured all of the moments like the first dance (every angle like a video) and first kiss, but the candid shots at the reception looked like they were pictures out of a magazine, and the best part was the picture of our ring bearer! Every girl dreams of the perfect wedding and how to remember the perfect wedding and the photographer is critical, I have always believed and still do. Every time I look at my wedding memories “pictures” I am very thankful that Jordan was our photographer. My husband and I feel she did a superb job and the proof is in the pictures. EVERYONE that has seen our wedding and engagement photos have been in awe at how amazing they are. She was great at seeing the picture and arranging things to fit perfectly into her image. I was in two weddings (other than my own, the same year I got married) and every time while the photographer was taking pictures of the wedding party I was ecstatic we choose Jordan. The other photographers weren’t nearly as organized nor did they have an eye, or natural feel of pictures to get of the wedding party; where as Jordan took all of the pictures we wanted and many more. If I could rank higher on the scale I would. She was very professional, friendly, very nice and went above and beyond in my expectations. She is genuinely a sweet person and an amazing photographer. I highly recommend her and will have her as my photographer for any other major events in our future.
Working with Jordan was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. She had such a great eye taking pictures of those photo-album moments like the first dance, artsy photos at stunning angels like my husband and I in the spiral case of the church, and small photos that illustrated the whole day like place settings and shoes (and my bare feet when the shoes came off).
The images were truly stunning. And she was very helpful, helping us get everyone in place for events like bouquet toss. For that toss, Jordan actually climbed up into the tree house (we had the reception at hubby's family's home) to get a shot of the bouquet in the air from above.
She is so friendly and pleasant to work with. Her ideas for photos are priceless. Walking out of the church, she smartly suggested that my husband help me pick up the train of my dress. And she snapped a lovely moment of him bending down to help lift the train into my hands.
The pictures are gorgeous. She was there at all the essential moments. Without being instructed, she found us even at the end of the reception when our priest pulled us aside to give us a last blessing, and we have beautiful photos of that too.
Jordan took fun pictures of our guests in candid poses that show their personality. These were a treasure for us and all the guests.
As for the one con, I will say that the processing of the photos after the event seemed a bit slow, though I don't know what average processing times are. But for that wait, Jordan gave us more than photos. Part of our package was a printed wedding album that she put together for us. She asked us to pick the pictures we wanted features, but I couldn't pick (and I know it would have been hard to find the time to put one together myself). Jordan composed a lovely wedding album for us that saved us so much trouble and is keepsake we will always treasure.
Lastly, when I lost a box full of prints, she was fantastic about helping us replace them.
I fully recommend Jordan Koepke. We enjoyed working with her and getting to know her, and we really, really loved her work.
