Good photography captures real emotion.  I want each of my clients to be able to look back on their images and truly feel their beauty.  I want you to remember the way you felt holding your baby in those first few weeks;  I want you to never forget the flutters you felt as you took that first step down the aisle.  I want you to truly see how absolutely incredible the story you are weaving with your life is.  How do I do this? Easy. I create environments that are laid back and natural.  We talk together, we laugh together, we enjoy the time spent together at your session.  Whether it's 10+ hours together on your wedding day, or 60+ minutes together in a field of hay, your time with me is always easy.  It's real.  It's authentic to you. While you are busy getting lost in the moment, I'll be documenting your story in real time.  Preserving the story of your life, and of your love, for generations to come. It is truly, one of the greatest honors of my life.

From the moment I receive your inquiry, to the moment you say your vows, I am in communication with you.  We'll meet for coffee, brainstorming the details of lighting, vibes, and must-haves for your wedding, or your lifestyle photography session.  I will take the time to get to know you, and your story.  I care to know your passions, I love learning about the places life has taken you, I want to understand the things that make your kids light up, and I absolutely want to laugh with you as you make your guesses for who will be the best dancer on the dance floor at your reception. I love and want to be involved in every aspect of getting you in front of my camera. And that's ultimately what makes it easy for you.  By the time we're taking pictures, the trust is there, I'm already a friend, and well, the magic just sort of occurs.  We hug, your shoulders relax, we put on some tunes, and we hang.  It's awesome, every single time.

How do I even start? Adrienne is absolutely incredible. I honestly thought that it was impossible to get pictures of my family that I LOVED, and I was terribly mistaken. Wrangling a 2 year old and an 8 month old is not easy, but Adrienne did it with ease and completely captured each of our personalities over and over and over again. My only regret is that I didn't meet Adrienne years ago and have her do our wedding, pregnancy and new family photos. We are so thankful for Adrienne and her beautiful work!

"SHE COMPLETELY CAPTURED OUR PERSONALITIES... WITH EASE."

frequently asked questions

more info?

Absolutely.  While my primary approach to any wedding day or portrait session is to focus on a more documentary-style approach, I value the importance of formal portraits.  Every now and again, I'll have clients who only want documentary-style - but in almost every wedding or portrait session, there will be a portion of the time devoted to more formal images for sure.

As a documentary-style photographer, do you do any posed shots? Like Family Formals?

I'm a Nikon girl, utilizing professional-grade Nikon D750s and D850s. I swear by my 35mm and 70-200mm lenses, but I also use my 85mm and my 105mm macro often.  Though I try my hardest to utilize natural light whenever possible, come dance floor time, I've got my Profoto lights on ready to make some swirly, fun, dancing magic. I bring backup gear always.

Weddings are my jam! My very first paid photography session was an elopement, and I've been hooked on weddings ever since.  When I'm not shooting weddings, I love portrait work.  Whether that is in the form of a couple's engagement, anniversary, or just because session, or in the form of family portraits, senior portraits, or lifestyle branding sessions. I also love to creatively think through new ideas to push myself as a photographer, and am often on the lookout for models.  If you'd like to be put on my on-call models list, please send me an email.

What sort of photography do you shoot? Just Weddings? 

I am now currently based in Birmingham, AL but I have lived in both Atlanta, GA and the Midwest (Peoria, IL area) and as a result, travel back to these locations often.  As a beach girl, I also travel for sessions on 30A/South Walton, FL, the South Carolina and Georgia coasts, and destinations throughout Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Florida.  I follow the fun - where you go, I go, happily.

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

I have been working as a wedding and portrait photographer since 2011, and I am completely self-taught.  I graduated from Gettysburg College with a degree in Health Sciences and German, then went on to take courses for an MBA.  Photography was always just something I was drawn to, and as a natural people person, I decided to finally take the leap towards doing it full time.  I haven't looked back since.

ALL ABOUT MY PEOPLE

My name is Jordan, middle name Quinn. My friends, family, and clients call me "Jo." I’d say my career as a photographer happened by accident all the way back in 2009 but has flourished since then because this is 100% what I was put on this earth to do. I am my best self when I am creating, making, and gathering from life as it happens. As an artist, photography is the medium that allows me to soak up, transpose, and contribute back to all of it. This life and career have allowed me to document radiant weddings, authentic lifestyles and compelling brands from Alaska to Mexico, Hawaii to Iceland, and plenty of extraordinary places in between. The responsibilities of being a worldwide visual storyteller continuously light me up, and it truly knocks my socks off that I get to do what I do every day.
