Joel is an Amazing photographer!! I have hired several photographers before finding Joel. Let me just say, "You get what you pay for."  Joel's deliverables are top notch, stunningly beautiful, and high quality. I've used Joel for corporate headshots, and pregnancy. He is slated for an upcoming wedding for my son. Joel is simply the best out there. More...

As most brides know, your photographer is one of the most important vendors you will choose. Joel Jordan and his team were fabulous. I did a bridal shoot a few days before my wedding to get photos of me in my dress. The shoot was completely catered to me, and to what I like in photos. The team made sure my dress looked great, my hair was in place, etc. Plus it was SO fun!!! The wedding day was just as great... the 2 photographers split up to get the getting ready photos, and they set up a wonderful first-look for us! They were able to deal with a big unorganized group and captured all the family photos we asked for, and more! Joel is such an artistic mind and his photos are absolute perfection! Any bride would be so lucky to have Joel Jordan photograph their wedding!  My only problem now is finding enough wall space in my house to display my photos because I have so many favorites!!!!

I'm not sure what bridezilla Hiep is talking about!  Joel is a consummate professional.  I have used him for all forms of photography and have been blown away by the results.  From engagement photos to baby portraits.  Joel has an amazing eye and does amazing work.  I highly recommend him! More...

Joel Jordan takes wonderful photos – he makes everyone comfortable in front of the camera and is enthusiastic during any session or event. The end result is beautiful and our wedding and engagement session turned into amazing photographs. I have to be honest that I got frustrated with his slow response time when it came to emails or phone calls – if you are the type of person that expects a response from a vendor within 24-48 hours, this will be an adjustment. On average, it took 2-3 emails and a week or so to hear back from him. However, if that doesn’t bother you very much, you will get a beautiful product from Joel Jordan! More...

Working with Joel the day of the wedding was great! This guy knows his stuff. Him and his assistant work so well together and with others. The flow of the picture taking was great because he knew what we wanted, he got the shots, and then he did his own creative shots as well. There was never any standing around with him wondering, " What should we do now..?" He always had an idea and he moved people around effortlessly. It was VERY reassuring to know that we were in such good hands on our big day.

Once we viewed our pictures a few weeks later, we knew we had made the right choice. They turned out awesome. We are definitely pleased with the photos. Joel was able to capture the beauty of the ceremony, our style and personalities, along with everyone letting loose and having fun at the reception. I have only received positive comments back from others who have seen the photos as well. I find myself going back and looking at the photographs again and again because he did such a great job capturing the day.

We used Joel Jordan Photography for our wedding earlier this year and I have tons of great things to say about them...- Super talented photographers- Great personalities and fun to be around- Ability to get great shots without being "creepy" or getting in the way- Good at shooting "in the moment' shots to really capture the essence of the event- Flexible depending on client's needs- An amazingly great price for the quality of their workThe one downside is the wait time for our photos. Our wedding was at the end of May and we are still waiting on the disk that has our edited, full-resolution digital photos. More...

We had our wedding and our dinner shot by Joel. i couldn't be happier with the photographs, the way he handled the event, and the cost. I felt like we found a real prize when we chose joel and jessica. They were ready on time, they were unobtrusive, they were creative, and they scored some adorable shots of my friends because they made everybody laugh. There were lots of pictures to choose from, and he captured lots of different moods. I was very impressed and feel super lucky that these will be the pictures we'll keep forever. I recommend Joel to anyone for any event, but he definitely knew what to do for a wedding. They were so sweet and friendly. Enjoy your day - hire Joel ! More...

I recently did an engagement session with Joel Jordan photography and all I can say is my pictures turned out amazing. Both my fiancee and I hate being in front of the camera, but Joel eased our worry and made the entire experience for us comfortable and fun. We had our photos taken at San Diego State University where my fiancee and I had met. What I love most about my pictures is not only did they make us look good, but it also captures the beauty of that campus. Another reason to love Joel Jordan Photography is there packages are very fairly priced. They often run specials which can help any brides budget and they do go above and beyond for clients (like me) who are working with a tight budget and need payment flexibility which not all photographers are willing to do. I would definitely recommend them and I will be working with them again! More...

My husband and I had all of our wedding photography done by Joel Jordan. We were thrilled with how fun he made our engagement session day. We shot a lot of pictures and he was able to keep our energy going while capturing the excitement and personalities of both my husband and I.Having him there on our wedding day was definitely a gift. The level of professionalism and organization he brought to the day was amazing. The location I had my wedding at did not have either of the above so it made the day hard on my husband and I. I did not know what to expect or how things were suppose to go, as no first bride usually does, but Joel and his team reached out to help us make the evening run smoother and get the images we needed to capture the night. The photos turned out amazing and I cannot wait to do our second day session!I would definitely recommend Joel Jordan Photography, Joel and his team are friendly, personable, flexiable and to say the least, amazing at what they do! Thank you for everything! More...

We were thrilled with our wedding day photos. Joel Jordan did an excellent job capturing the beauty, love and excitement of the day. They made us feel comfortable and like we were made to have our picture taken. This was important for us because the groom sometimes gets uncomfortable while having his photo taken and it can show in his smile, but Joel and Jessica helped put him at ease. They also remained very professional throughout the day while still enabling us to enjoy the big event. It's not simple to keep large wedding parties and families on task, but Joel Jordan efficiently moved family members and friends around with easy and quickly so the portrait session didn't take forever. This way everyone was still smiling for the camera by the time it was all over.

Moreover, my parents are no longer married and not on the best of terms. They made sure to not have them interact longer than necessary and understood the delicate situation.

Also, even when we had finished taking group photos Joel Jordan was eager and encouraged us take more photos of just the bride and groom. So we snuck away and took some captivating photos outdoors and away from the wedding rush. These turned out to be some of our top picks.

We would highly recommend friends and family to use Joel Jordan Photography; not only for their talent but also because they are professional, positive and easy to work with.

Joel Jordan Photography is amazing. Before, during and after the wedding my husband and I could not have asked for more. Working with Joel Jordan Photography was simple, even though the wedding was a destination for us coming all the way from Iowa. The quality of the memories that he helped to create for us, and the very professional service that we received were wonderful. Thank you! More...

We absolutely loved working with Joel and Jessica. We did an engagement session, a bridal session at an off-site location and the wedding - and they did an absolutely amazing job with all three. There is a fabulous mix of posed and candid shots as well as some traditional and those more contemporary - which is a wonderful mix when your giving wedding photos as gifts. And they also did an amazing job with the wedding album. But the things that stick out as being equally important was how their personalities make you feel at ease (which is so important since they are literally by your side all day) but they also dealt very well with the bride have her moments and "freaking out" leading up to the big day. They are also wonderful about returning emails and phone calls within 24 hours, and do their best to accommodate their clients even amongst their busiest schedules.

We live in OKC, so I can't compare their cost to other photographers outside of Oklahoma, but I know that my sister-in-law got married 3 months before us, paid a lot more for her photographer and didn't get all of the items we did - including multiple photographers, guest sign in book, website login cards, etc.

I can't begin to express how wonderful of a job Joel and Jessica did, how wonderful they were to work with and how fair their prices were compared to others in Ok. Highly recommend!

At the age of 3 years old, my 4 children were each taken to Carol for artistic photo sessions. We asked to make a ""masterpiece"" not just another ""sit and pose."" After many shots, sometimes on different occassions, and much paid staking detail, we were able to complete a ""masterpiece."" The time she spent with us 1:1 getting to know my children was quite important as this was the time she was able to learn their personality and how the pictures should be done. She is extremely detailed from the fingers to the toes. In my opinion, she is the best around and we will not be going anywhere else!!! She is a maticulus artistic photography. More...

Joel Jordan is an AMAZING photographer! Out of all the wedding plans, the photography was the one I was most picky about, as I have photography experience from college. Not only was he a lot less expensive than some other photographers, his photos are beautiful, and he really captured every important moment and detail of my wedding day. And, you get a CD with all the negatives on it as part of the package! More...
