About Jordan

I am a photographer from Chapel Hill, NC, specializing in weddings, portraiture, and fine art.

I have a photojournalistic style that emphasizes candid portraiture, with natural lighting and color. I’ve found that spontaneous expressions of emotion make for magical, memorable pictures. With over a decade of experience in the film and television industry, I have learned how to tell a story with every photograph. 

While I take my art very seriously, I do my best to make sure working with me is a fun and laid-back experience. Getting to meet and know new people is one of the best parts about my job!

After graduating from UNC Chapel Hill in 2006, cameras have been my life. I have had the amazing opportunity to work professionally with every type of camera imaginable, from pre-WWII film cameras to the most cutting edge digital cinema cameras. I truly love what I do.

When I’m not taking pictures, I enjoy spending time with my amazing wife, watching the Tarheels play basketball, going to movies, and professional wrestling.

"Jordan did a fantastic job photographing our August 1 wedding! The ceremony was at a church in Durham, and the reception was at the Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw. Jordan did such a beautiful job of capturing the ambiance in both places and photographing the amazing scenery, particularly in Saxapahaw. He really captured the tiny details, like flowers and decorations, as well as doing beautiful portraits of the wedding party, families, and guests. He is so pleasant and easy to work with, and puts people at ease with his professional manner. Also, on the day of the wedding, he was just "around" photographing really special moments, never in an intrusive way. We would highly recommend Jordan for any job."

"Wonderful photographer! Really enjoyed working with Jordan. He took some very beautiful photos for my commercial CD album. The cover photo reflects perfectly of the intention of the CD. He makes people feel relaxed and not self conscious. I highly recommend him!"
