Amy & Jordan

About Amy & Jordan Photography

We fell in love in high school. When there was nothing more important than the homecoming dance. When a driver’s license was a commodity. When passing notes was an art form. We were young little pups ready to take on the world.

Today, we are a husband and wife photography team based in Scottsdale, Arizona. We are passionate about marriage and blessed to do what we love together. If you would like to know more, visit our website using the link above.

Jaymee & RB

Shenandoah Mill | Gilbert, Arizona

We remember it like it just happened. Sitting outside a frozen yogurt shop in the middle of a warm summer evening. Listening to her talk about his proposal plans. Watching her smile because she had no idea it was coming. We talked, and talked, and talked. We could’ve talked all night. About life, love, and everything under the sun that’d long since gone to sleep. It was like we were sitting with old friends, because we were. We went to high school with Jaymee. She cheered on the same track with Amy when we started falling in love. She had a front row seat to the whole thing. She got to read the prologue before the opening chapters had even been written. So, as we wore out our throats with words and cooled them with our favorite two flavors — Cake Batter and Salted Caramel mixed together with a little granola sprinkled on top for texture — it hit us that, in just a few months, we’d get to return the favor, and it felt so special, that even though we’d missed their prologue and first chapters, we’d be there to capture the major scenes of the opening act.

Jaymee and RB, thank you for welcoming us into the story of your life with fun laughs, big hearts, and wide smiles. We loved every second of your wedding day. You and RB are so special to us. We hope these images make you feel the way you made us feel every step of this wedding journey: loved.

The second the day started, we knew it was going to be a beautiful one. We absolutely loved Jaymee’s ivory, champagne, and blush color pallette.

Jaymee handmade all of her details and decor, including the invitations, which we loved!

Every detail of Jaymee and RB’s day was so personal. Jaymee is very close to her grandfather, who wasn’t able to be at the wedding due to his health. Jaymee’s parents surprised her with this necklace custom made by a local jeweler from his watch and gave it to her the night before her wedding so he could still be with her every step of the way. So sweet and thoughtful!

RB and his guys were cool, calm, and collected.

Lindsay (right) is RB’s best friend from childhood, and he helped make sure RB looked extra sharp. He was a groomsmen and the officiant for the ceremony! He lit up every room he walked into, warmed up every conversion he entered, and we left the day thinking that he’s probably one of the nicest people we’ve ever met. It makes a whole lot of sense why he and RB get along so well.

Keeping in line with all the personal touches of the day, Jaymee’s mom made the bow she wore on the back of her dress. Love it!

We l-o-v-e when our couples opt to do a first look! How priceless are RB’s faces? So sweet!

We SWOONED over the light and setting for portraits! Add Jaymee and RB to the mix and we could’ve shot there ALL DAY!

All of the girls chose unique dresses within the same color palette, which paired so well with the guys’ looks.

Love the history of this next shot. These four have been best friends since they were all in middle school. They’ve done life together every step of the way, and now all four of them are married!

The bouquets and boutonnieres were the perfect compliment to each other.

RB and one of his friends home made apple pie moonshine for all of the guests, including us! We love it when our brides send us home with gifts – especially desserts — and drinks that taste like dessert!

Three photos of the cupcakes. One for Amy. One for Jordan.

And one because we love cupcakes.

There’s just something about the way a man holds his wife in his arms… there’s just something about it…

The rest of the night, the party was roarin’! They kept us on an extra hour just to capture all the fun, and we had a blast! Such a great way to end such a fabulous day!

Our Spring Portraits

WinShape Retreat | Rome, Georgia

A few weeks ago, in the middle of our busiest season, when we thought we didn’t have time for anything else except our work, we made a last minute decision to pack our bags and head to Georgia for a marriage retreat. We’ve been revving our engine on red for quite some time. That’s our nature, we guess. Go, go, go! We’ll sleep when we’re dead! And we love our fast-paced lifestyle. We do. But something told us that we needed to slow down. Just for a little bit. To disconnect from the business we love and reconnect with the person we love. To sit around late-night bonfires and laugh like we haven’t in a while. To lay awake into the early morning hours talking like we did the first night we spent in our first home together. To remember that in order to love our clients well and celebrate their love, we have to draw a line between being business partners and life partners and cherish ours, too. 

Last year, we committed to doing at least one professional portrait session every twelve months, but we’re already ahead of our goal because we did a fall session in October at Melissa Jill’s workshop and this spring session in April while at the marriage retreat. That’s definitely one advantage of spending a few days with 40 other husband and wife photography teams: session swaps! A special thanks to our two dear friends Annamarie Akins from Richmond, Virginia, and Alison Mish from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for taking our cameras, letting us get on the other side of the lens, and helping us make some beautiful memories together. We L-O-V-E these photos! You two are both so talented, and we feel blessed to call you friends!

Sometimes we have to put our cameras down to remember why we picked them up in the first place: to give others the gift of happiness we feel we when we get to see our love through a new lens.

Carolyn

Desert Mountain Senior Session

What do you get when you combine golden Arizona light, lush overgrown foliage, and a high school senior who dresses like a star and holds herself like a model? You get Carolyn’s senior session — and we’re slightly obsessed. From the moment we snapped the first frame, we started giggling to ourselves, because we knew it was gonna be a GOOD DAY. Plus, there’s just something about high school seniors these days. Can we get an amen? There’s something in the water. It’s like the opposite of that scene in Willie Wonka, where Augustus Gloop drinks from a river full of chocolate, falls in, and gets sucked into the fudge room. You remember that part, right? For these seniors, it’s more like when Achilles’s mom dunks him in the River Styx and makes him invincible. Our question? Where’s this magic river, ladies? Because you’re all swimming in different water than we did in high school. Is it a potion? Two drops of gorgeous… a pinch of fabulous… a spoonful of style… If it is, send us the name of your dealer, because we wanna get hooked!

Carolyn, from the minute we met and hugged, we couldn’t wait to start working with you. We smiled every time you did, because how could we not? It’s infectious, girl. Good luck in college this fall. We hope that your future is every bit as bright as you are in these photographs. Here’s a little sampling of our afternoon together…

CONTEST UPDATE: Thanks so much for everyone who participated in the Closet Candy Boutique giveaway! We got an awesome response, and are so happy for our two winners, Beth A. and Lexa C! Congratulations, ladies! We can’t wait to see what cute looks you have sent your way!

Featured: The Learned Bride

Engagement Session | University of Arizona

Happy Thursday, friends! We’ve got some exciting news! Erikka and Bryson’s engagement session at The University of Arizona is featured on The Learned Bride today!

When Alex, the fabulously talented and ever so tasteful editor-in-chief of The Learned Bride, contacted us last month and asked to showcase these two cuties as the FIRST engaged couple on her BRAND NEW blog, we couldn’t help but grin from ear to ear! We L-O-V-E the concept of an engagement and wedding blog featuring college campuses across America and the love stories forged on them. With so many gorgeous universities in this country, we seriously can’t wait to start following this blog every. single. day! We also love it because we met in high school and spent all four years on a college campus falling more in love with each other, so we can totally relate with all of the couples who remember what it was like to eat in the cafeteria together and cheer on the school’s football team! Three cheers for unlimited soft serve ice cream, right?! You remember those days! We know we do…

To check out the feature on The Learned Bride, click here! Be sure to leave lots of comment love for Erikka and Bryson (because they’re amazing!) and let the editor know what college campuses YOU want to see featured next!
