I've literally been on a quest to review Jordan in as many places as I can because my husband and I have been so blown away by her work and adored our experience with her. Believe all of the other 5 star reviews, she's just as wonderful as they say she is. From the start, Jordan was one of the easiest and most responsive vendors we worked with. She made the photo taking experience completely stress-free and even fun for my husband, who hates having his photo taken. Even he was thrilled with how his photos turned out, even though he normally hates how he looks. In addition, I think her true gift is the candids she is able to produce. Looking at her candids is like reliving each special moment of our wedding day over again. We've been staring at our highlights gallery for days straight now, completely blown away. Each photo is one we know we'll cherish for years to come....and we haven't even received our finals gallery yet!
I don't want to drag this review out any longer. Plain and simple -- hire this lady! You won't regret it!
I would give a 12/10 if I could. In all honesty, out of all the vendors I have worked with this year (or even ever!) I simply can not put a fault to my experience with Jordan, it was so seamless and pleasant, more than I had ever expected. She puts so much attention and detail into everything she does and is super organized - I didn't have to worry about anything. Everything is considered. From the way you make online payments, to how she cares about your needs, takes notes about your preferences, is creative in how she shoots details and frames images, tonality of the imagery, she even helped schedule my day! Not to mention the final online gallery, I noticed her 'highlights' of 100 images managed to incorporate every guest of the wedding, with a nice balance of the different environments and events we had throughout the day/night. The gallery is super organized in how you view the images (arranged in folders), and I was able to automatically download them away in multiple sizes for multiple usages. Oh yes and she had no qualms about driving 2-3 hours to our venue. And is great with communication, gets back to you asap! Planning a wedding in a different state was slightly stressful, but I'm so glad I found Jordan because she was lovely to deal with and a true professional. Kept her cool, and even helped keep me calm when I was stressed! I'm usually a bit uptight in front of the camera, but with Jordan it all felt so comfortable, almost as if she wasn't there! The final images were magical, desaturated in tone yet warm and inviting, very tasteful. We didn't get a videographer, so she was the only means of preserving our memories and I'm so glad she did! All the best in the future, thank you!!

...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!

For my wedding in August, 2018, I had an outstanding experience with Jordan Katz! She was very easy to communicate with, and came to meet with us to discuss what we were looking for and how she could best serve us. We ended up hiring her for 9 hours with an additional photographer as well, for photos but not for videography. Jordan and Vanessa made sure to get photos of us getting prepared, of various groups of people, the ceremony, the reception, and they even recommended and took sunset photos during the reception. Everything came out great, and they were extremely professional and went above and beyond our expectations. Jordan even recruited her boyfriend to block traffic on a scenic street for a while so she could get some amazing photos of us before the wedding! Anyway, we couldn't be happier, and would highly recommend Jordan. 10/10!

I'm Jordan, a documentary-style event + portrait photographer based in San Francisco, CA. I began pasting polaroids into notebooks when I was 8. Now that I'm not 8, I'm into coffee, dogs + helping people experience the best moments in life over and over through photography. I believe in capturing the honest beauty that exists in all my clients.
