About Rachel Jordan
Hello, I’m Rachel – I’m an artist who loves capturing people’s stories. I have been photographing people for 20 years and it’s a passion that is the driving force in my life. I am driven to constantly create and grow as an artist, and to capture the most important moments of peoples lives – to tell their stories through photographs.
As a dedicated artist, I feel it’s important to strive for mastery of my craft, and professional photography awards have served to help me grow and elevate the work I create for my clients. I’m honoured to have received professional awards for wedding photography, fine art portraiture, illustrative, and documentary within New Zealand, Australia, and internationally.
When I’m not capturing weddings, you can find me photographing bridal editorials, fine art portraits and creating photoshop artwork.
My style has been described as emotional, whimsical and elegant. I adore painterly-feeling portraits, gorgeous rich tones and imagery that evokes deep emotions every time you look at your photos. It is always my aim to strike the perfect balance between fine-art portraiture and documentary of your wedding day.
On the wedding day my approach is simple: emotional story telling, capturing the happiness, the love, and the little moments that take your breath away. It is my wish to capture memories that take you right back to the special times of your wedding day – precious photographs that allow you to relive the best day of your life – to make you cry, laugh, and feel the love for many years to come.
For the most part, I have a mostly hands-off approach on the day, outside of the creative session. I do my best to blend in with your friends and family in order to capture the most authentic moments possible – the genuine moments that unfold when you are at your most natural, in-the-moment, and enjoying your special day. For this reason, I focus on documenting the real candid interactions with loved ones, versus overly staged ones. Authenticity is what I love, the moments that will alway bring you back to the best day of your life. The little details of grandma’s hands holding yours, Mom looking at you with love as she puts the veil on, Dad seeing you for the first time in the dress, seeing your partner for the first time as you walk down the isle, and laughing with your guests on the dance floor. These moments are what your wedding day is all about, and I am there to anticipate and document them as they unfold, told through my eyes as an artist.
The Creative Session
My passion is creating unique works of art for my couples that they are proud to hang on the walls of the their home. During each creative session and individual bride and groom portraits, I use subtle professional posing techniques to create visually pleasing compositions and to achieve the most evocative results. It is a craft that I have honed over many years and fine-tuned to an art form – in order to make the bride and groom look effortlessly stunning. Most of all I want us to all to have a ton of fun!
