We hired Jordan Katz to be our engagement and wedding photographer and we could not be happier with our choice! Jordan is friendly, professional, organized, thoughtful, caring, fun, and so, so talented. We wanted a photographer that would captu...
re the candid essence of our love, and also create a beautiful documentation of our wedding. With Jordan, we got both and then some!
From the start, Jordan was professional, organized, and efficient--all while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere. She's just so easy to get along with! This made it easy for us to have her there during the emotional moments leading up to the wedding. We felt fine with her there because we trusted her skills and trusted her. (Plus she's a Gaucho, Ole!)
During the preparation process for our engagement shoot, Jordan was very responsive and helpful when we were choosing a location and our outfits. She invited us to collaborate on Pinterest for ideas and we chatted easily about different options. When the time came for our sunrise photos, we knew we had chosen the right person. Jordan had a mixed style where she gave us directions that were easy to follow, but when necessary, she would also just shoot us in our natural state and make beautiful photos! We hiked around for 2 hours and it felt like a half hour. We had so much fun!
She delivered save the date options within a week and our final engagement photos in less than a month! They were beautifully edited and we will love them forever.
In the months leading up to the wedding, Jordan sent thoughtful notes, trinkets, and reminders. We felt cared for and special even though we know she was busy with other projects. She still made us a priority, and that really helped. In the lead up to a wedding, things can get stressful and, at times, it's easy to get lost in it. Jordan's little reminders and gifts helped us pause and feel excited. Something else that decreased our stress was the fact that she was easily available by phone or email for any questions! We worked on the timeline to make it perfect and she was so flexible with our needs. Leading up to the wedding, she had initiative in getting the numbers of our coordinator and videography. On the day of, she was there on time, new the schedule, and never had to rely on us for direction. This, is, amazing! Seriously, you want this kind of person working at your wedding.
During the wedding, Jordan was a dream. She was there and working hard but not in our way or taking away from moments. She was organized enough to make sure we got what we wanted, but flexible enough to let moments happen as they do (off schedule!). She worked super well with our videographer who she had never met before and they were a perfect team. She seriously worked her butt off that day and captured everything. She was everywhere!!! It was incredible.
The proof is in the photos. She sent us THE PERFECT sneak peek the next day, and then delivered our highlights less than 3 weeks after the wedding. We couldn't believe they were just the highlights. She had captured so many moments and had done so beautifully. We were further impressed when she delivered our full album of wedding photos less than a month after the wedding!
Obviously, we really liked having her as our photographer and can't overstate how helpful she is. We give our highest recommendation and hope everyone chooses her. Cheers!
