THE PATH TO WHERE I AM TODAY WASN'T A LINEAR ONE, AS MOST PATHS IN LIFE SELDOM ARE

my driving force is this:
What lives at your core?
What excites you in your day to day?
mine is connection...
I ache for authentic exchanges and sweet moments. Before photography, I was a musician. It gave me room to feel and make others feel. Picking up a camera was next.
Fun fact, I started at a New York fashion week. A happy accident. The photos I took in between filming runway, would lead me to be invited back a few more times. I take that draw to fashion and personal style, and apply it to my sessions with people.
Photographing people in different parts of the world and from different backgrounds excites me. I love meeting new people, somewhere fresh, and painting a picture together that is specific to that moment. The canvas is blank, yet we have all of the tools to capture something beautiful.
Hurricanes live at my core when I am gearing up to capture a new story, because truly, each couple and individual I meet is a new adventure for me.
I'm here to walk you, seamlessly, from start to finish in your wedding photography process.
All of the wedding photographers that work for Andra match her style seamlessly by using the same lenses, camera settings, & posing techniques to ensure every couple we work with receives a consistent set of images.

Fun Fact about me:
I used to teach special education and still make time to lead vacations for developmentally disabled adults and volunteer for special olympics.
I got into photography ten years ago as a hobby and quickly fell head over heels for weddings. I focus a lot on LGBTQ+ weddings because, as a proud member of the community myself, I feel the need to provide inclusive, safe & unrestricted wedding services to everyone.

Remembering the best day of your life is easy, just have fun & I’ll photograph the rest!
Mix a little thirst for exploration with a sentimental heart - and you've got me. What started as a hobby photographing landscapes has now grown into a passion of preserving moments in life.
Wedding photography allows me to create and share my perspective meanwhile documenting the one of the most thought-out and important days of people's lives. I value deep connection and authenticity which I get to convey through my work.
I find inspiration in the eyes of people and am rewarded when they get to see themselves for the beautiful creations that they are.
Steal my heart any day with a Hawaiian plate lunch and some views ;)

Little Known Fact:
I won America's Most Talented Kid on NBC when I was 10.
Cinematography is an art form that I have always admired. I enjoy the process of capturing touching moments betwen people who love each other. At the end of the day, I want to create something that you will forever cherish and remember.
My name is Jordan Skipper. I am a DP/Cinematographer based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. I grew up in Alameda, California. I was a student athlete at UC Davis where I studied Managerial Economics and played football. I got married in 2019 at the Bridges Golf Course and my wife and are are new parents as of 2021.
I have experience shooting weddings, music videos, narrative shorts & more. My journey in filmmaking began in 2017 when my wife and I began traveling and creating videos highlighting our trips. The process of filmmaking captivated me so much I began taking classes and learning the art of cinematography. Now I use my camera to help people tell stories.
I like shooting weddings because they are stories of love. I get an opportunity to capture the most important day of a couple's life as they celebrate with the family and friends that witnessed their love blossom. I capture a mixture of natural raw emotions & cinematic moments. For the most part, I am a fly on the wall and couples don't even notice I am there.
